Amazing stay in the Berkshires!
We had a wonderful stay at Nina's home in the hills. It was perfectly situated just outside of Hudson which allowed us to visit several beautiful towns all within a 45 minute drive from the house. The house had a great layout for our family of 5. The kids enjoyed exploring the surrounding forest. The kitchen was stocked with everything one would need to cook a gourmet thanksgiving feast. We would love to come back!”
Great experience all around!
Great location in the Berkshires, close to some of the best ski resorts in the North East and succulent dining experiences, i.e. Hudson, NY or Great Barrington, MA. Great house with everything you would need for a fun and immersive travel experience. Private location with great sunset views across the countryside. Thank you Nina for your hospitality!”
Wonderful Rustic Getaway
Spent a wonderful 4th holiday with family at this rustic mountain getaway..... though rustic the kitchen is outfitted for a real cook with everything you could imagine and plenty of grocery shopping within a few minutes. This is a great place to disconnect, sit around the kitchen table and spend quality time with family. If you are looking forward to watching the big game though there is no TV so not the place for you. The location was also a great base for excursions to Lenox Mass and the Mass MOCA a little over an hour away. We actually saw two foxes playing the back yard and were greeted every morning with deer migrating through the property. Owner Nina was wonderful throughout.... a new member to 3rd Home so welcome to the club and hope you enjoy as much as we do! ”
