Doris was very accommodating to our change in plans due to weather. Her home is in a very nice neighborhood that is convenient for us to visit our daughter at the college.
Everything was fine. Had an enjoyable experience.
Our three-week stay on Elliot (no relation) Drive was a pleasure. Doris' house is in a quiet neighborhood close to all the good things in Williamstown/North Adams etc. It's full of light and is well-located and well laid out. there's a fair amount of stair climbing, if that's an isue for anyone but wasn't for us at our late 70's . We enjoyed ourselves and would happily stay there again.
We had a great time at Doris' house, on the edge of Williamstown. It was very bright and sunny, despite the cold and wind outside. Also perfectly located to enjoy MA, NY, and VT. We cooked a number of our meals at the house and the kitchen had all that we needed.
We stayed at Doris' house for new years and found it an excellent base to climb Mount Greylock on a blustery winter day. Overall it is predominantly updated and with two bathrooms afforded us much comfort. Cooking in the kitchen was a breeze and internet service worked well. We would definitely stay again. Great communication with Doris via email and telephone!
We felt comfortable at Doris house, it is spacious with great views.We loved the Nespresso mashine and the art in the house. furniture and beds are fine, beds and sheets might need a replacement. the heating worked perfectly and can be controlled for each story. we did not want to watch tv, yet for people who really like to watch a lot, I think this tv is not suited.
We are rather fussy about cleanlyness and were fine about most parts of the house, not all.
The sound is an item in this house, you can hear almost anything in either of the three bedrooms, it did not disturb us much since we were mostly asleep very fast and only a Party of three.
There is a great supermarket with mainly organic food near by 'wild oasts'. There is a great option to go hiking and start Off at the house to Mount Greylock.
All arrangements with Doris were clear and uncomplicated, which we enjoyed very much.
The neighbourhood is nice and quiet. All in all I can recommend the house, we sure will consider for our next visit.
Doris's house was lovely, comfortable clean and in the most quiet place we've ever been to. We had all we needed, Doris was very kind and she has all your choices of coffee you can think of, even Nespresso, which is our favorite!
Neigborhood is totaly a safe place and looks amazing with all the foliage views. We also found a great place for breakfast- Tunnel city coffee.
Doris's house and Williamstown is definitely a place to come back to.
Thank you, Doris!
We had a great stay at Doris' house last weekend - she made everything very easy logistically, the house was conveniently located close to Williams for our alumni weekend, and the house was comfortable and spacious with plenty of room in the bedrooms. Highly recommended!
Positives: Spacious, Nice Views, Very close to all we needed for the weekend, Quiet neighborhood, Nice to be able to do laundry, Owner very accommodating, Groovy record collection, Speedy internet.
Could Improve: Sound carries too well in the house (great for piano, bad for sleeping through the night), one of the bedroom doors wouldn't stay closed, no cable
Overall awesome stay. Too bad we didn't get a chance to meet the owner! Would definitely stay there in the future!
I rented Doris' house for three months. It was perfect. Everything was clean and freshly painted. I parked my bicycle in the two car garage, the laundry room looks newly renovated, and the kitchen has more appliances than anyone will ever use. Williamstown center is just west on The Mohawk Trail, Mt. Greylock is all but directly outside the living room window- a 10 mile climb from the driveway to the summit at 3,491', the highest point in Massachusetts. The locals all seem to drive Subarus with canoe racks on top. There is a terrific local grocery, Wild Oats, a mile away, which is having a staring match with a certain well known donut shop across the road. I bought my vegetables from Chenail Farm's roadside stand, on the road up to Greylock (half a mile from the house). I have stayed in the area before, to ride up Mt. Greylock and write, but this summer was by far the best I've spent. There were no surprises, no weird issues or aggravating factors. I've traveled quite a bit and have learned to appreciate not only the good aspects of a place, but the lack of annoying ones as well. The house is quiet, yet all the usual businesses one might need are close by. Most of all, however, I appreciated Doris' kindness, she has a heart of gold.
