We came here two years ago and loved it. Who knew that a return visit would be even better? Last year we flew to Southeast Tuscany for the peace, solitude and beauty. This year, we did the same, except without the jet lag. Many thanks to our great hosts.

My wife and I had a wonderful long weekend here; the place is clean, comfortable, and with a terrific view of the surrounding mountains. Very convenient to town (5 minutes) and close to hiking and gorgeous walks. Cooling off in the pool was an unexpected delight. And Efrem and Frederica were terrific hosts.

Efram and his wife were great hosts; very communicative prior to our arrival with directions and recommendations in the area and available as needed. They were also very kind to provide pastries, fruit and a bottle of wine on arrival. The studio is clean, comfortable and in a great location to get to many places in the area.

Efrem was extremely communicative before and during our arrival, and beyond hospitable throughout. The morning we arrived, a lot of snow was expected--he made sure to leave us bagels, fruit, coffee (on top of a bottle of wine he'd already laid out) to help us while being snowed in. The cabin was the perfect cozy weekend escape for a couple, and in a gorgeous area (beautiful view from cabin, amazing area to walk around, close to all the big cities). We'll definitely hope to be visiting again!

Efram and his wife Frederica could not have been more welcoming and accommodating all around. I travel to the Berkshires often, and their location is perfect for visiting all that the Berkshires has to offer. The cabin is lovely and the views are amazing!! I highly recommend a visit to this very special place!

This place is absolutely incredible. We stayed over the July 4 holiday weekend and had a wonderful time. Every morning we had coffee on the bench outside taking in the spectacular view. Then we would do one of Efrem's recommended hikes followed by an afternoon by the pool. The studio cottage was the perfect size for us, clean and comfortable furnishings. The hosts were lovely and available if we needed them. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. We are extremely lucky to have found this place and would love to return again.
