I stayed at Jills place with a couple of my girlfriends and it was great for a weekend getaway. It was very clean, spacious, and had a very home-y feel. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. All the places we wanted to go in the Berkshires was about a half hour drive so great location! Thank you Jill!

A group of us stayed at Jill's house last weekend for a planning retreat. The second we walked through the doors we felt so peaceful! The house is wonderful! It's quaint, cozy, well kept, and in a beautiful area. Jill was so quick to respond to questions, and very accommodating. There was a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the table when we arrived, and nice hand written note. We enjoyed relaxing, vision casting for our non-profit, and cooking meals together. We will definitely be back! It was a perfect weekend escape from the city.

We had a fantastic weekend at Jill's lovely farmhouse. It felt just like a real home. We could relax together and cook meals and take in the autumn colours in this quiet corner of the world. If you need a low key peaceful escape this is a great stay. All details were covered, including the house keeper Sharon popping by to check in. Jill's information and directions were comprehensive and helped us settle in quickly. If you are coming from Boston the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps are great until the last turn! So follow Jills instructions. Shop for supplies before you arrive, Middlefield itself is tiny. A great base to tour the Berkshires.

This was a great place to stay in the Berkshires. It is a little out of the way, but the scenery and the house make the trip worthwhile.

Response from Jill:
We don't generally put sheets on the bed ahead of time as we don't know what beds will be used.

While we didn't meet Jill, she was very responsive to all emails. She even emailed me to make sure that everything was fine. We had a small hiccup with the hot water, and Sharon (the neighbor) was responsive and helpful. We fixed the hot water issue within 30 seconds of speaking with her. As for the house, it was absolutely gorgeous. Be wary of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps because it will route you through gravel... which happened to us at 8 p.m. when it was pitch dark! If I were to come visit the Berkshires, I would most definitely love to stay here again.

Sorry about the lack of body wash....there should have been some..I guess we ran out and the housekeeper didn't realize it. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.

I was looking for a way to step away from the city and find some quiet time. Jill's house could not have been a more perfect place for this! The pictures do not show how truly sweet this old house is. Waking every morning to birdsong, sitting on the porch having tea, exploring the yard and taking in the beauty of the wood on the old barn -- an incredible place to relax. The housekeeper Sharon was also incredibly helpful with questions; she keeps the house in great shape with a passion for both the property and the community. A great stay all-around. Thank you so much, Jill!
