This was our first experience with an AirBnb and we were completely satisfied! From the initial booking with Bee Dietemann to our arrival and meeting Peg, everything went very smoothly. Peg was a wonderful host and very accommodating. The apartment is absolutely gorgeous! Everything is new and very clean. My husband and I stayed there on Memorial Day weekend to see our daughter run in the marathon. Our daughter stayed at an apartment across the street that was wonderful as well! The location is perfect and easily accessible to all the local areas of interest. There was plenty of room to enjoy our family as we sat on the patio, cooked on the grill, or socialized in the living room area. We would definitely love to come back and stay here again! Thank you, Peg!
Beautiful apartment in lovely setting, better than described. Light, open & airy even on a grey Berkshire day. Modern, tasteful design makes this a unique space. Loved all the windows, snowy view to the Housatonic and woods. Details like great lighting, lots of outlets, well-placed hooks, nice linens, comfy bed were much appreciated. The kitchen is really well designed with everything we needed. Nice furniture and lovely artwork. Peg was a welcoming host. Hope to return.
We had a great weekend in the apartment. It was perfect for my wife and 2 kids (8 and 5). It was only 10-15 minutes away from Butternut for skiing. When we got rained/iced in on day 2, we used the comfortable space to make pizza, pasta, and have family game day. Peg, who lives above, was awesome. She let us borrow a pizza pan, called to get the driveway sanded, and gave us local recommendations.
Having stayed at local motels for the same price, this is such a deal and is a true getaway in the woods. I also recommend the quiet places in Housatonic for going out instead of fighting the crowds in Great Barrington.
We had a lovely stay with Peg, who was very flexible with check in and out times. The apartment is clean and comfortable, very quiet and peaceful. We loved the Housatonic Market closeby for breakfast.
Bee, who is managing the rental on behalf of Peg, is extremely responsive, and excellent to deal with. We would definitely stay here again.
Peg( the appartment owner) was a lovely host and the apartment is amazing!!!
Fully equipped and very clean.
Bee which manage Peg's account on Airbnb was really nice and responded very quick to every question I had.
I highly recommend to every one who wants to explore the berkshires.
Thank you Peg and Bee.
What an utter delight from start to finish! Tucked away, up on a small hill, amidst rocks and trees, this brand new, meticulously clean, generously appointed, self contained unit was a haven of peace and comfort. The beds are cushy and comfy, the full kitchen is perfectly equipped, the shower is wide with great water pressure and the central a/c is self adjusting.
Bee Dieterman, who books the rental, is an absolute joy to deal with. She was promptly efficient with all the arrangements and informative and ever so patient with all my questions. Peggy, who owns the property, and lives upstairs in the separate main section of the house, is a true lady, refined, kind, helpful and discreet. It is perfectly located, just a few minutes drive from Great Barrington, with its wide array of shops and restaurants, and Barrington South, the excellent community center, where we swam in the Olympic sized pool every day. We came home refreshed and renewed and look forward to returning to the serenity and comfort of this retreat as often as we are able.
