“…Thank you so much for an incredible stay in the Berkshires! You really made Alexander’s birthday very special – romantic, unique, peaceful and fun. You looked after every request to make us comfortable and feel at home. The bed was very comfy, the living room cozy, the food was delicious and the surrounding area is gorgeous – the gazebo was a dream. We will be telling our friends… and recommending the sushi party! Thank you so much for the birthday carrot cake… “

“…Thank you very much for your unconditional hospitality. You really made us feel at home. We enjoyed our stay way beyond words can describe. We certainly would love to come back next year. Your home is situated in a wonderful location, which goes beyond what we had imagined….Our sushi lunch there was wonderful with breathtaking views of the Berkshires. I think it is not exaggerating to say you have the best place in the Berkshires… “

“What a lovely time we had! The Japanese dinner was delicious and rolling our own sushi was a real treat! The babbling fountain outside our window, breakfast with a mountain-view; our trip to the cliff-top gazebo all made for a wonderful 2-day trip. Wish we could have stayed longer. You were tremendous hosts and made us feel like family…”
