Parking is at the top of our long hill driveway, so it means that you will be walking down a grassy gentle hill around to the front of the house, to enter the apartment. If you have significant mobility issues, this may not be the best choice for you due to our steep driveway and there being steps to house, stepped floor in the bathroom.

David is the perfect host. He sent us great instructions and the apartment is quaint, clean with all necessities provided. It had a shared enclosed porch with a little view; the place is delightful.

David's place was warm, clean and well-located for getting a taste of New England in the fall. It was also a little more basic than I had expected from the photos.

Response from David:
Rae Rich, it was great having you and Don here. Your mention of "over-priced" is the first, I believe, among the 250-plus reviews the listing has received.

In fact, I haven't raised the price on this listing for four years. Thanks for your feedback.

David was a great host, and there were fresh flowers, fresh ground coffee and cream in the fridge. The apartment was sparkling clean and there were lots of local guide books. The property is on an impressively steep hill, so if your mobility is limited, consider carefully. I w…

I lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts for 25 years before moving to the Berkshires in 2005. Out here is the "Shire," I undertook a deep renovation of a Greek Revival Duplex, built my art studio, and landscaped the heck out of the hillside property. This is a wonderful place to …
