Le logement

This is an 17 year old house built by the owners sited on 30 acres near an old stone sheep herding wall, now comfortably broken in. It's very cozy but open, with radiant heat and one wall of windows (inspired by the Charles and Ray Eames House) looking out towards the lake and hills. The land is beautiful in all seasons. Our 30 acres of woods is on a private road with 3 other properties, one of which is a horse farm.
I have four children (now ages 17 to 7), two boys and two girls, so we have a variety of toys and books.
Downstairs is an open plan with several living areas and a separate 600 square foot kitchen with a Viking range, dining area and bathroom. There is a queen size pull-out couch, a double/single fold out couch, and another that is the size of a twin mattress.
Two bedrooms and a bathroom are upstairs. Both bedrooms have panoramic views of the lake and land. There are two sets of twin bunk beds in one bedroom and a queen bed in the other.
Our 30 acres are private but we share our 20 acre lake with 3 other properties and local fauna, which is abundant and includes deer, turkeys, chipmunks, beaver, turtles, lizards and a variety of birds.

Accès des voyageurs

Guests will have access to the whole house, 30 acres of land, a charcoal grill, a canoe and a pond.

I'm a regular emailer & texter. Once the guest is officially a guest, I'll share my cell for texting and calling. Otherwise, you're on your own. If you need someone there, the caretaker is readily available.

Autres remarques

1. There is a Roku Streaming Player for watching Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, or anything on your laptop, on the flatscreen TV. The trees grew too tall for satellite cable apparently.
2. The kitchen faucet is sensor. The top sensor turns it on & off with a wave of your hand. The one under the faucet turns it on & off automatically so you can wash your hands, etc. If you walk away, it will turn off. Or you can turn it off by waving your hand above it and using that sensor.
3. The largest burner on the stove (front left) has a broken starter. You'll need to use the clicker/lighter that's in the drawer next to it to light it. Please make sure it is turned off when not in use! Sorry for this inconvenience.

Most of the furniture in the house is antique and needs to be treated gently (not the couches or beds). The white fiberglass chairs are vintage and cost a fortune to replace, so please don't lean back on them!

Great private location in Columbia county, canoe on the lake down from the house, large open space great for a family, plenty of light with the large windows, large lawn for games. The house was clean and Rudie was very responsive. Plenty of Hiking, festivals, Great Barrington, Chatham, and Hudson with half hour. Favorite Chatham Brewery! Thanks for sharing your home.

Great location and house is set a bit back from a private lake. It is a short walk through the property woods and is enjoyable to observe or canoe on. House was clean and is suited well for a family with kids. Toys and bunk beds were a fun feature as well as the yard with swing and play set.

Peaceful, roomy, light filled house. We enjoyed Rudie's home and were very pleased to find it exactly as described. We chose to do very little while we stayed and mostly made use of the wonderful kitchen and large dining areas. Large windows and glass doors encircle the house to make easy access to the woods surrounding the property. The lake is steps away and the front yard has a swing set for the young or young at heart. Rudie was an awesome host and readily accessible through the Airbnb message app. There were a few hiccups finding the property but the house address marker signs are on the trees. The Wi-fi is good throughout the house and the Roku works but don't expect regular cable. We accessed our own Netflix and Fios accounts through the Roku. Have your access passwords on hand! Rudie does let you know ahead of time though. All in all no complaints and only praise. Thanx again Rudie for accommodating us so quickly! You save our weekend plans!!!

The place is secluded and quiet. The open kitchen made it easy to prepare big sit-down meals. We had kids in tow, so the swingset and yard were a great distraction for the young ones. We canoed around Beaver Lake, went for runs on the local roads, and watched the stars through the skylights.

We were a mixed group of couples and singles in our late 30s to late 40s who came out to stay while we visited Tanglewood one night and Saratoga race track another day. Overall the home worked but I'd highly recommend eye masks as there are no window coverings and ear plugs if you have a group and different people up at different times. These were our main issues. Definitely glad our group opted to stop at the house during daylight hours so we knew the landmarks. I'd really suggest this home for a single family with kids. Ideal for that scenario as there are games/toys and lots of outdoor space for them to run and be carefree.

Great location with easy access to the Berkshires apart from all the other great spots nearby. Make sure you have the directions written out when you head there. We had our phone service die on the last stretch and were driving around for a while, though Rudie responded promptly by text. This is a gem of a house: very spacious, full of light, surrounded by trees at every angle, and full of literary fiction, artsy nonfiction, and well-known children's lit, apart from beautiful furnishings arranged with care. We were there with 4 kids ranging in ages from 5 months to 8 years and 4 adults, and everyone had space. The kids enjoyed the toys, the playground equipment out back, and videos on the Roku. Grownups enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen and eating area. The lake views are beautiful, and if we were experienced with the boat, we would have tried the water. It's not a spot to swim, really, though (and Rudie was clear about that in her communications with us). We'll be back sometime! Rudie was a great host--very responsive and detailed with instructions, expectations, and recommendations, all of which were helpful.
