Starting with the friendly and helpful welcome, our stay at the Red House was fantastic!!! The beds were comfortable, the house was spotless and well-maintained.
Although it was only just the two of us, the common area (living room/dining room) would be a great place for a family to hang out.
For us, the best part of the house was the screened in porch overlooking the beautiful lake.
Even in the rain, we were able to enjoy the view of the lake. Jerry couldn't have been more helpful.
It was a wonderful long weekend and we'll definitely go back.

For a Grandmother with 2 adult children, their spouses, and grandkids aged 5, 3, and 2, the Red House was a perfect place for our family’s week in the Berkshires.
First the basics: Everything was clean and refreshingly simple, with a traditional cottage feeling. Bedrooms and bathrooms were newly decorated in calming white and gray. Our host was welcoming, gracious, and responsive.
But what makes the Red House a great spot for a family gathering? Spacious screened porch to read or chat, or just watch the light on the lake; large open living space with comfortable new sectional couch and table that seated us all; kitchen equipped with tools, pans, and pots for the cooking, grilling, and baking we enjoy when we’re together. Beds were great, bedrooms quiet.
The lake front and dock, only a few steps from the porch doors, suited our swimming and boating needs. Lake Buel was a reasonable size and depth for fun with our small motor boat and 2 brand-new kayaks. Thanks for a wonderful week!

This house and equally importantly the family who owns it are the best of the Berkshires. The house is perfect for a family of any size.
Our three kids and dog felt right at home and we were able to host more family and friends for dinners, days on the lake, and beyond.
But the real magic of this spot is the story of the family behind it--a story you can see in the simple, beautiful history of the decor and also in the communication with Jerry and his wife. They were eager for our kids to enjoy it and for our family to feel like it was our own while we were there.
We stayed for two weeks and cannot wait to come back for longer.
