Danielle responded to my vacation request in record time, and was very attentive before, during and after our stay. Everything was perfect when we arrived - the cottage was spotless, adorable, comfortable and quiet, and situated in a lovely setting - everything you could want in a vacation rental and more. The cottage has been lovingly restored by a master craftsman and artist, and is truly a work of art. We enjoyed visits to the local falls and covered bridges, and ate and shopped in nearby towns in 3 states (CT-NY-MA) that looked like they were right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. The Cottage at Great Falls was a perfect place for us to celebrate our 60th birthdays, in a perfect location to boot. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, well appointed cottage and would book again.
Only issue is the lack of air conditioning which can be a problem if weather is hot and humid.
We spent a very relaxing weekend here and took great advantage of the deck overlooking the river. Everything was as described and depicted in photos. It was awesome to hear the falls from our room and as we sat outside. It is most certainly a place to remember for future getaways.
I spent a week in July at this lovely cottage and thoroughly enjoyed it!
Upon arrival, you will find a very welcoming home. It is a unique, artistic, labor of love and it shows in every room. From the expertly tiled bathroom and floors to the original artwork and stained glass windows, you will not want to leave, but there are many attractions close by. We visited the Infinity Music Hall, Kripalu, Jacob's Pillow as well as the CIA in Hyde Park. Great Barrington is close by as well as plenty of local dining choices. If you decide to eat in, there is a fully stocked kitchen as well as a terrace and deck overlooking the Housatonic river for outdoor dining. You can end the day with a relaxing whirlpool bath before retiring to the very comfortable beds or listen to music or watch a movie. There is an extensive collection of CDs and videos. Although you are guests, the owners hospitality causes you to feel more like friends. Many thanks, Danielle and Mario, for sharing this gem. I look forward to returning soon.
