Great communication prior to my arrival made for a easy extension of my weekend at Kripalu. The room was great with lots of natural light and very comfortable bedding. The location in the quaint town of Lee was perfect with lots of restaurants just down the street. Margaret was a wonderful host.
Our stay at Margarete's beautiful home was just perfect.
Margaret is a wonderful host and everything looked even better than in pictures.
The neighborhood is very safe and the location is perfect. Very close to Lenox and Tanglewood Musical Center.
Thank you very much Margaret!
Our one night stay was short yet pleasant. Margaret is a very warm and welcoming person. Our room was clean and bright. It was a comfortable stay. She directed us to a great breakfast, a short walk to downtown Lee.
Margaret was a pleasant and accommodating hostess. Her home is indeed within walking distance to many things in town. She placed fresh hydrangeas in the room- need I say more?
Great place ---- awesome bed, loved the décor! Only briefly talked to Host, wish we could have had more time with her. She was busy and so were we.
Shared bathroom was ok, wish we could have had other tenants schedule for bathroom use. I would stay again and recommend it to others too.
It was a great pleasure to stay in Margaret's charming house. She was a gracious and communicative host who thought of everything and made everything easy. The bedroom is lovely, spacious and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Margaret, and I look forward to returning!
About the Host, Margaret
Originally from London, I grew up in Dublin and have lived in the US for 30 years. In my twenties, I travelled widely and at times it feels like coming full circle as the culture and people of the Berkshires remind me of Dublin. I work as a hospice nurse and am very grateful for good friends and community.
