Charming and romantic,' Round' Cottage on the Santarella Estate in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. Formerly, the cottage was sculptor Henry Hudson Kitson's summer studio on the Santarella Estate. The two-story cottage has a charming bedroom with 35 foot high conical ceiling with canopied bed upstairs with views through massive, multi-paned "mill windows" to the trees and sky and out to the lily pond. The downstairs sitting room looks out on the babbling brook and lovely gardens.
“Denise was a wonderful host, and the property was beautiful and serene. The grounds were very well maintained, the house was picturesque and cozy, and its proximity to many small, enjoyable Berkshire towns and trails makes it a very convenient get-away. Denise herself was very friendly and accommodating, giving us much information about the area, and teaching us how to keep warm with the fun pellet stove and mattress warmers. I hope we can revisit soon.”

“I'm a regular in the tiny house / glamping scene and Gayle's place was right up there in top-of-the-list territory. Her Pondhouse is nestled in the unpretentious greenery at the bottom of her magnificent property at the end of a quiet country road. The pictures give you a good sense of the space but what you don't get is a sense of the magic that you feel inside the space with the sun streaming through the tall grasses and the quiet of the leaves falling on the metal roof. The pictures also don't tell you how wonderful the bed is and how soft the bedside rugs are. So many delightful touches. My teenage daughter and I stayed there for two nights. We had planned to go on some hikes in the area but in the end decided we couldn't tear ourselves away from the Pondhouse. We'll be back!”
