The space

My sweet turn of the century cottage is located on 2 acres in the village of Mill River, MA. This is truly the best of both worlds - you get the quiet seclusion of a house nestled in the woods, across from the Konkopot River, with accessibility to everything the Berkshires has to offer. The village of New Marlborough (of which Mill River is part of) is tiny and picturesque, but it offers 3 exceptional restaurants (The Inn on the Green, Southfield Store, and Gedney Farm), a well stocked general store, and many gorgeous and public natural wonders (Umpachene Falls, Campbell Falls, Questing, Dry Hill Reservation). 10 minutes to Great Barrington, 20 minutes to Infinity Hall in Norfolk,CT, 30 minutes to Tanglewood. Perfect accommodations if you need a place to stay when attending a wedding or event at Gedney Farm (2 miles down the road). Bedrooms are beautifully furnished - one with 2 twin beds and one with an antique double bed, both with ceiling fans, plus a sofa bed for one in the downstairs parlour. Although it is not air-conditioned, the floor to ceiling windows make for wonderful cross ventilation. ONE full bath on FIRST FLOOR (for those with accessibility issues with this "quirk" of an older home, please take note), fully equipped kitchen with Viking stove and Miele dishwasher, formal dining room, parlour with bay window. During the spring and summer, a spacious screened porch is perfect for dining and relaxing, as well as herb and vegetable gardens for the ultimate in locavore harvesting. A charcoal barbecue is available for use as well. Wireless internet (password upon request), Direct TV with HBO. Please view the pictures of the cottage and property - words cannot do it justice!
PLEASE NOTE: Unless you have AT&T, there is no cell service at the house and is spotty in the Berkshires in general. Guests are welcome to make and receive calls on the landline and voicemail password can be given upon request. If you need a house very cool and air conditioned in the summer, or very warm in the winter (like 80 degrees), then this is probably not the house for you. I only accept reservations from people with completed profiles, and there is a three night minimum for the holiday weekends of Memorial Day , July 4th and Labor day.

Guest access

Vegetable and herb garden, a well stocked kitchen with lots of spices and high quality olive oils and vinegars, as well as other seasonings.

Interaction with guests

When I rent the house out, I sometimes go away for the weekend, or I stay at my parent's house which has very limited cell service (I provide you with their number). There has never been a catastrophe, but please bear in mind that sometimes I will not be able to get back to you immediately, although I am careful to check my phone when I have guests staying at the house.

There was unfortunately an issue with the well pump, so we didn't have the pleasure of staying at Jennifer's cottage, but she was gracious and quick to inform us of the problem (which I am sure was very much unexpected and is an unusual occurrence) and we definitely look forward to staying at a later date!

Jennifer's home was every bit as nice as described in the profile and by other reviewers. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet cottage getaway in the Berkshires.

Jennifer has a beautiful and cozy home and we had a great trip in the Berkshires. The house is well-stocked with amenities you might need, and Jennifer was easy to communicate and coordinate with. We love the little town of New Marlborough... Perfect location and house for a quiet vacation.

Great place as advertised. House was very close to Gedney Farm where we were attending a wedding. In addition, the house was close to many other points of interest.

Jennifer had instructions for the house on the kitchen counter all ready for us so there was no wondering what to do about anything house -related. The house was well stocked with any kitchen implement we could possible want. The house is beautiful and the beds are comfortable. the neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. We would definitely stay there again.

Charming and cozy cottage in the Berkshires with a foodie's kitchen
