Response from Efrem:
We’re very sorry that Paige and Matt experienced any inconvenience or discomfort during their stay. The cottage is cleaned before and after each rental and we carefully check for odors and any other problems. As the temperatures were in the mid-90s with very high humidity during their stay, if any issues arose we would of course have remedied them immediately had they mentioned them. As for the pool, yes it is shared, as we explain to guests, but Paige and Matt did have it to themselves for hours each day during their stay. (On July 4th our grandchildren had no day camp and thus spent perhaps one hour in the pool. On other days they were not even on the premises until 5 p.m. or later.)

Great little place for a perfect getaway complete with an unbeatable view and pool in a gorgeous setting. A bottle of wine, chocolate and bottled water were really nice touches. Quiet and peaceful and just a 5-minute drive to Great Barrington.

We came here two years ago and loved it. Who knew that a return visit would be even better? Last year we flew to Southeast Tuscany for the peace, solitude and beauty. This year, we did the same, except without the jet lag. Many thanks to our great hosts.

Efrem was extremely communicative before and during our arrival, and beyond hospitable throughout. The morning we arrived, a lot of snow was expected--he made sure to leave us bagels, fruit, coffee (on top of a bottle of wine he'd already laid out) to help us while being snowed i…
