Great Barrington, Massachusetts
Shaker Hill is a quirky rambling farmhouse located less than 3 hours from NYC and Boston. Hidden away down a 400’ unpaved driveway on 30 acres of fields and forest in the heart of the Berkshires, Shaker Hill is totally private and surrounded by 30 acres of rolling fields, diverse wetlands, wildlife and forest. It’s serene and connected with nature.

This is a very large house, more than adequate in size for a group of ten people. It has a big yard and a spectacular view of the mountains, especially from an upstairs window. The playroom is a nice touch for those with kids. There are two staircases, which is also nice.

I was under the impression that there were four full bathrooms (which I took to mean with showers). When we arrived, we found two bathrooms with showers, one with a tub, and one that was either a half-bathroom or had a tub (I can't remember). The description on the website may have changed since I was there - I'm not sure - and I find the current description confusing and don't see anything about a tub.

One big negative to this house is that there is only enough hot water for two to three showers. In a house that can hold ten people, I found this to be surprising and disappointing.

One of the bedrooms had a king-sized bed, one had a queen (or maybe a king), one had two twins, and the...

Management response:

I appreciate the review. The reviewer is mistaken on a couple of main points: There are 2 king sized beds - one in the master bed room, and 1 in the room with the large windows and ceiling fan. Regarding the hot water, this is a country house that has a hot water tank and a well. If people do...
