February 21-26, 2017 A wonderful place for a family ski getaway. Minutes from the slopes and very convenient. The house is very nice and clean, full of books and loads of toys for the little ones.

It's like staying at the library! --Joanna

January 12-16, 2017 Your home was the perfect weekend getaway for our group of friends here for skiing and sharing winter memories. The fireplace was wonderful, the kitchen well-stocked for us cooks, and the views and light from the big picture windows were a great antidote to the winter blues. We even heard a pair of coyotes on our last night here! You've made a very cozy and welcoming place in Whitman Woods! --Friends of the M. family--Megan, Dan & Stella
January 12-16, 2017 Whitman Woods was welcoming, warm and so well-stocked! Such a pleasure to settle in for a long weekend with kids and friends. And close enough to Jiminy Peak for our son to walk home while the rest of us enjoyed some night skiing. Thanks for thinking of everything! --The M. Family
November 22-25, 2016 Thank you - a wonderful stay! The thick snow made for a special quality in the scenery and the well-plowed driveway made it all easy. The house is very welcoming, comfortable and easy especially the fireplace and wood supply! --Jeanne & Gregor

May 27-29, 2016 Five alumni from Le Moyne College (in Syracuse, NY) met up at your lovely cottage for an all-too brief reunion weekend. We sang, we hiked, we ate far too many hot dogs. It was phenomenal. This was such a great experience to get away from our respective cities. Thank you. --Andrew
May 14-18, 2016 Thank you for the house. The place was everything we wanted. Hopefully each spring we can rent from you. --Jeff

October 17-20, 2015 We had a terrific time staying at Whitman Woods. My sisters, their husbands and my husband and I enjoyed the hiking (although the trail was not discernible due to too many fallen sticks and, of course, the leaves), the fireplace, found some great things to do in the area -- e.g. Jiminy Peak, Hancock Shaker Village and dinner at Hops & Vines in Williamstown. My daughter and her husband and 2 twin 3-year old girls came for a visit and loved the leaves, the climbing structure, the toys downstairs and the book of poetry for kids. Thank you so much for providing this delightful place for our family get-together. We will have fond memories of our stay there for years to come. --Meg
October 10-12, 2015 Such a perfect place for a weekend getaway. The kids loved the toys (indoors & out) and we all enjoyed the beautiful, cozy place in the woods. --Haleh, Kiran, Michal, Dani, Itay, Guy & Naomi
September 26, 2015 - October 3, 2015 Another wonderful week at your great home! We love how secluded the house is and of course enjoy the quiet. --Manny & Colleen
July 11-18, 2015 I believe this is our 8th time at Whitman Woods. As always, it was a wonderful retreat from our usual busy routine in Boston. That said, we found plenty to do. We visited four museums (Clark, MassMoCA, WCMA & Rockwell), saw plays at Berkshire Theatre Festival and Shakespeare & Co., and hiked the trails at the Clark where we also took in a free concert. We dined at all our old faves and found a couple of new ones -- Haflinger Haus in Adams and North County Pastaria in North Adams. We love the location of Whitman Woods because it's so secluded yet equidistant from all the things we love to do. As always, we found the house clean and well-stocked. It's always a pleasure. --Anne & Ken
December 1, 2013 - March 31, 2014 Thank you very much for sharing your house with us. We had a great time and the kids say it is "their ski house." It is like a second home for all of us. See you next season. --Susana & Jeannette
October 11-14, 2013 Thank you for the beautiful home in the woods. The four bedrooms, large kitchen/living area were more than we could've asked for. We loved the fireplace and the fact that there was plenty of wood for a roaring fire was great! We loved the large deck on the cool crisp nights. We have been coming to this area for 40+ years and this is one of the nicest homes/most well-equipped place we've stayed. We hope to be back next year. Thanks again. --David, Sandra & Family
October 4-7, 2013 Thank you so much! We had a fantastic time in your lovely home. We have never felt so relaxed as we did this weekend. It is so peaceful and quiet here and was the best escape from our busy lives. We hope to be back soon! --Nick & Jessica & Friends
August 20-24, 2013 We had a really good time in your cozy house. We loved playing games and eating food on your deck. We enjoyed nearby Mass MOCA, Tanglewood and Mt. Greylock. Thanks for providing such a cozy and inviting home. --Jordan & Family
August 9-11, 2013 Thank you! We had a great time! Place is awesome for kids and families. We had four kids age range 2-5 years and they had a lot of fun. Well stocked play room and play structure outside; safe and fun environment; beautiful deck, location in the woods. Great time. Thank you. --Marjorie & Family & Friends
July 28-31, 2013 Thank you so much for for the stay. We enjoyed your cabin in the woods and spent most of our time out on the back deck. Even while we were out, we looked forward to the deck and a fire when the evenings got chilly. --Suzanne & Steve
July 13-20, 2013 Thanks so much for another great week at Whitman Woods! We always appreciate how clean and well-stocked the house is and how comfortable and pleasant it is as well. We did a lot this time -- plays at Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theatre Festival and Williamstown Theatre Festival, museum days at Mass MOCA, Williams College Museum of Art and the Clark, a free outdoor concert at the Clark, a day at the Mount and a day at Hancock Shaker Village. All recommended! Fave dinner places: Water St. Grill, the Olde Forge, and Espana. See you next year! --Anne & Ken

A Perfect Massachusetts Respite
Our group loved our stay at Whitman Woods! Bob and Peg's cabin was so comfortable and really felt like home. We enjoyed the VHS collection and being able to take quiet walks in the woods.
During our stay, a tree fell down in the driveway during a storm and Bob was responsive and quickly took care of the problem.
We hope to return to the Berkshires! Would love for this cabin to become part of our annual traditions :)

This place is huge!! It could even possibly fit two families vacationing together- The upstairs and downstairs both have 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, and living room/ den. Or possibly a huge group of friends.
I've never seen the Berkshires before, and the drive through was simply amazing. Once you get here, you're right in the woods. It's gorgeous! There are a few small trails, but not a ton of outdoorsy activities directly on the property. However, there's plenty to do in the area, and they provide a curated booklet of activities, restaurants, and places of interest. If all else fails- they have Netflix and wifi :P
