Marvel at colorful multiple-type gardens, fruit trees and shrubs, mature woods, deck, hammock, two gas grills and fire pit, outside. Swing on the bench at our small private pond, hidden away in our woods, and, in season, celebrate nature by listening to chorus-like peepers, chirping wood frogs and night owls.

There are two first-floor bedrooms available for guests that can accommodate up to three adults each. The upstairs has a master bedroom with magnificent views and a ceiling fan. In addition there is a guest room/study/entertainment room with a pull out couch.
There are foam mattresses and blow-up mattresses available for any room. All rooms have linens, and dresser and closet space.
The house is home to two beautiful cats. I have had people stay in the house who are allergic to cats, but with their basic medication have done fine. The house is meticulously cleaned and vacuumed before any rentals, but if anyone in your party is super allergic to cats, they may react to some of the dander inherent in a house where cats live.
Unlimited use of entire house. Bathrooms on both first and second floor. Cook meals, store goods in refrigerator, make some tea, relax in grand open room, build a fire, play spinet piano, browse our extensive libraries. Enjoy our backyard, patio area, and fire pit. Walk in our woods, sit on the bench at our pond. Park your car(s) in our two bay garage.
We will always try to greet you in person upon arrival and departure, in addition to phone calls and emails before your visit. We usually stay close by during your visit, so we can be of assistance in person or have someone else help you as needed.
Pleasingly quiet and secluded, yet fairly close to neighbors in our rural setting. We enjoy watching and listening to the birds at our feeders, noticing the deer and turkeys traveling through our yard and woods, listening to the seasonal serenade of the frogs peeping, and the owls hooting. Go outside and enjoy nature- it's at your service.
Plenty of free parking on site and a two bay garage with a doorway into the house. One must have a car to get around in this area. Use our bikes, canoe or kayak for recreational travel!

Becky was a terrific host. She made coordination easy over airbnb and email, was very responsive, and was accommodating of our large party that consisted of multiple families, including little children. Our vacation included skiing at the Bousquet ski area, which was an easy 20-minute drive from the house. The house's long driveway was tricky to navigate with the ice we faced, but other than that the house was great, clean, and cozy. We made several yummy meals in the well-stocked kitchen. After we left and she returned, Becky found a Kindle we had unfortunately left behind and she shipped it almost immediately to our home in Brooklyn. Overall, we were all comfortable and had a great stay.
The place was great! It was big, beautiful and cozy. It had everything you needed to cook, grill, make s'mores and hang with friends. The location was super close to the beautiful lake for fishing and close enough to drive to hiking spots. All that, plus Becky was super helpful, nice and available for all of my questions. I'd love to come back again and would definitely recommend to others.
Rebecca's house was exactly what we needed. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. We didn't get to explore much of the outdoor space, but it was a treat to know that is was there. As a host Rebecca was very attentive and helpful. I would certainly recommend it to any small group looking for a spot in Columbia County!
We so enjoyed our stay in Canaan, NY! Becky is a personable, welcoming and fair host. The house was ideal for our reunion with friends - a beautiful kitchen, open to dining and living areas, ideal for preparing group meals with kids nearby. The yard is lovely and we enjoyed a sunny afternoon in the hammock. We three families were completely content to stay put and catch up, but I have a feeling the region has much to offer for arts and culture as well!
We enjoyed our stay at Becky's home. It was very comfortable, clean and just what we hoped for. Her house is very spacious and tea in the sun room was delightful in the afternoon! Thank you for sharing your home with our family.
Becky's home is a fun, funky old farmhouse with rooms and beds here and there and a wonderful central kitchen/sitting area where our group (7 friends from high school) spent hours hanging out, eating, cooking, and laughing. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed nearby hikes and walks. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to try some of the local restaurants, many of which were very tempting! Becky was a lovely host and available to answer any and all questions. It was a very clean, homey and comfortable destination and absolutely perfect for our needs.
Our friends Marshall and Elizabeth, their two kids, and our three kids had a great weekend at Becky's place in the Berkshires. She was very gracious about hosting 5 young kids!!! The house was spacious. The kids particularly enjoyed the hammock in the kitchen. We even toasted marshmallows in the fire pit in the yard. The location was great for us -- we went to a pumpkin patch on Saturday and Hancock Shaker village on Sunday. This area is spectacular in leaf season.
Great house, beautiful surroundings. We hung out in the great room most of the time and it's a very homey and comforting space. Owner, Rebecca, was very nice and called or stopped by to make sure we were doing alright and had everything we needed. She gave recommendations for things to do around the area. The Lake Beach was clean, not crowded and gorgeous! We had fun.
Becky does a great job creating a relaxing, low pressure atmosphere from which to enjoy the Berkshires.
The house is just secluded enough to offer some privacy, without being so far out as to make excursions a hassle.
A great bet for any family or other group looking for a launch-pad in Western MA or NY.
Also, the lake 2 miles down the road is gorgeous and swimable.
