Friendly hostess, convenient location, great place

We recently stayed at Jude's guest apartment for a long weekend and had a fantastic time. Jude is very helpful, attentive and filled with suggestions of what to do in the area. The apartment was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Jude has a knack for decorating and has found many fun items to make this place unique and interesting!

What a great place to spend a month away from home and in the beautiful Berkshire! Our hostess---Judy is attentive to even the smallest detail and the apartment is equiped with everything one needs to make this truly feel like a home away from home. And the cake she made for us was delicious. Hope to spend some time there again next year .

Owner's reply:

Hope you had a good time visiting your friends and look forward to your return. Also, " Thank you " for being an attentive guest.

Excellent value and location!

The apartment is spacious, clean and well-equipped (true to photos on the website) and the perfect starting point for several activities in the area (e.g. music at Tanglewood, theatre in Williamstown, and a very interesting contemporary art museum in North Adams). The apartment is very well situated for outdoor activities as well. Mt. Greylock is not to be missed...the trailhead is SO close to the apartment!!. It was also easy to rent bikes from the friendly people at Berkshire Outfitters and enjoy the rail trail (be sure to pick up sandwiches as The Baer's Den Bakery for your day's outing!!). Jude was a very helpful and hospitable hostess. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the "Heart of the Berkshires!"

Owner's reply:

Beautiful Berkshires........

This apartment makes you feel like you are stepping back into time. It's all about the 60's. It's charming, clean and decorated nicely. We enjoyed staying there, and certainly will go back.

OMG It is living to the max!!!

We stayed for 5 nights and we can not explain how wonderful it was. We felt at home right off the bat. Judy is a wonderful hostess and owner. We did not need anything, everything was in reach. We had to bury my husbands mother and she made it less stressful on us. How can you thank someone that was there for you and a wonderful person??? And the apartment was just perfect. Thanks again Judy and Adams, Mass. We love you!!!!

We Love Staying Here

We LOVE staying at Judy's place. It has become our getaway place in western mass. When you walk in you immediately feel like you are on vacation. Her place is spacious, spotless, has such fun artwork and decor, and is so comfortable and private. If you get a chance to visit with Judy she is a spark of life and so fun. Just walk out her door and you can be on bike trails and walking paths in minutes. Adams is a quiet little town with lots of gems if you just start looking and Judy's place is the perfect place to stay.

Hostess with the mostess! Nice hotel alternative

My son and I had a very nice while staying in this very cute and spacious apartment. The stay was only made better by the owner who couldn't have been nicer and more helpful while also respecting our privacy. The garden is beautiful! The apartment is very comfortable w/everything you need and if there is something you need that isn't there, ask the owner and she is all too happy to provide it for you. We had a great time and will definitely return! Thanks for a super nice week, Judith!

Heart of Gold

We, that includes my 80 year old mother, carry back wonderful memories of our 3 week stay. Judy's personal attention, tasteful retro decor and the pleasant notes at the "comm corner" were delights; not to mention the delicious cake she baked us on my mother's birthday. As all 4 of my family live in diffrent countries,we were looking for a place to call home when we got together this summer.This was it. And we got Judy's smile as a bonus!

Fall Fun in the Berkshires

The apartment is lovely and well taken care of. The location was perfect for short trips to North Adams (Mass Moca) and Williamstown (William College Art Museum). The bike trail to Pittsfield is an easy but beautiful ride past lakes and trees. Judy is very helpful and really wants everyone to have a great time. We will definately return.

Weekend Getaway

What a great weekend we had! Played golf in nearby Clarksburg, went biking and found a great breakfast spot at the mouth of a lake on the trail 20 minutes away. Ate some good food, did some shopping and site seeing and always had our "home" away from home nearby. Our host has put a lot of time and effort into the Apartment, and it shows...We slept confortably and could have spent the whole weekend inside just looking at all the old memorabila! Got us in the mood for a visit to the Norman Rockwell museum nearby on our way home...Thanks again J, hope to be back soon...

Charming Apartment and Gracious Host

My two sisters and I shared this absolutely darling retro apartment for four days. It is immaculate, comfortable and quiet. The location is ideal for access to the many activities in this region, a 10 minute drive to Mass. MOCA. In addition it is steps away from a well maintained rail trail that takes you right into downtown Adams or out to Cheshire Lake. Our lovely host steered us to great restaurants in the area and shared many local stories. Great Find! We will be back.

a great base for region exploration

A comfortable apartment in a quiet area of town was what we were looking for and found here in Adams. It is very clean and imaginatively decorated: you will love the bedroom! Due to its location the house is a great place for day long exploration trips to cover the Berkshire area. Our stay was too short, only three days, but we are planning on coming back
