    We had a great trip to the Berkshires largely in part to our stay at The Redway house. Everything is very comfortable and well appointed making it feel like a home away from home. The location is perfect. Easy access to Tanglewood, Norman Rockwell museum, Chesterwood and we swam in the Stockbridge bowl every day using the house?s swim pass. Also, the beds are very comfortable and the privacy and setting is beautiful. Fantastic place!

    We rented this home for a weekend away with family. We have stayed in many rentals around the world. This is by far the most well-appointed home we?ve encountered. Every aspect of the stay is considered for the visitor. The owners were fabulous at leaving no stone unturned. The kitchen is stocked with appliances and utensils to make any gourmet meal, the beds are wonderfully comfortable, the entire home is immaculately cleaned before arrival. We enjoyed leisurely meals, walks with our dogs on the well kept trails, and playing board games on the deck. This location is great for many things in the Berkshires. We will be sure to come again!

    James and Liza were great hosts! The house was very quaint with lots of country charm. The house was perfectly located; it was close to town yet felt removed with the beautiful trails in the woods right in the backyard. The only drawback was that my husband, who is allergic to animal fur, had a reaction to being in the house (I didn't think that renting an animal-friendly house would be an issue for him). Anyway, James let us borrow the vacuum, and after passing it on the stairs a few times, the situation seemed to improve.

    The Redway house was the perfect spot for our winter getaway! My family decided to visit Stockbridge for the holiday season and were looking for a cozy place with a working fireplace that was close to town but also private and peaceful. Redway house had the feeling of a charming old New England home but with all the modern amenities and comforts. There were more than enough towels and linens. Beds were very comfortable and the Redways set up the bedrooms ahead of time in the arrangement we had requested. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more for cooking our own meals and enjoying being together at the house - we love cooking so this was a huge perk for us (house even has its own herbs from their garden). Temperatures were freezing outside but we were still able to take advantage of the numerous beautiful trails on the property! The Redways have everything very well kept and organized, including trail maps, offering local brochures for things to do, and instructional pamphlets such as how to connect to the Bose speakers and use 'Alexa'. We arrived at the house to find complementary homemade ginger molasses cookies - they were to die for! Our two golden retrievers were welcome and quite comfortable. Our stay at the Redway House exceeded our expectations, we were so pleased and plan to be back in the summer!

    We spent the most lovely Christmas at the Redway House. The home is just a few minutes away from downtown Stockbridge with its quaint restaurants and gift shops. The house situated in a beautiful territory surrounded by trees and hills has lovely decor and is comfy and cozy. We loved sitting around the fireplace while watching the snow outside. Kitchen was nicely stocked and the home was equipped with all essential amenities including washer/dryer and dishwasher. Our hosts James and Liza were truly amazing and made us feel welcome from start to finish. We already miss Liza's homebaked ginger cookies and will definitely be returning. - Dee and family

    Staying at the charming Redway House is like being a guest at a favorite relative's house. We were astonished at how well-equipped it was from the pancake griddle to the special vegetable grill pan. The rooms are even more spacious than shown in the photos and the property is immaculate. We loved having fresh herbs from the garden. The hosts are responsive to every question and send guests a comprehensive guide to the property and surrounding area before your arrival. The house is on a very quiet road but close to many Berkshire attractions. We loved every minute of our week in this lovely, well-cared for home.

Once Upon a Table and the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge, and Rouge in West Stockbridge. .. they were all excellent. We will definitely come back again for a longer time, and cook some dinners at home in the well stocked kitchen and eat in the cozy dining room using recipes from the enticing Redway Cookbook.

The house was immaculate and the kitchen appliances were new and up to date. You could tell that the owners took great time and care thinking about what their tenants would want. I loved the welcome book with their family story. It was dog and kid friendly, and our family had such a fabulous time! We went skiing at Butternut (our favorite ski resort), and we had 2 great dinners. We went to Once Upon a Table, which was fabulous. Great food and service. We also had take out sushi from Shiro which was also very good. We love this area!

    My wife and I were looking for a long weekend getaway to ring in the New Year. We wanted something simple, not too far from home, near outdoor activities, and pet friendly, so we booked the Redway House for 3 nights.

    To say that our experience at the Redway House exceeded our expectations is an understatement. This property is INCREDIBLE. The acreage is beautiful (with tons of hiking), the house is charming (much bigger inside than it looks), and owners have stocked it with every convenience you would see in a 5 star hotel (I never expected USB ports throughout the first floor of a the house).

    Not only is it a tremendous property, but the location is terrific. It was less than 3 hours our home in NJ and I minutes away from both West Stockbridge and Stockbridge and both towns have a lot to offer.

    This is an amazing getaway for a family. We look forward to going back!

    So when I say amazing......I mean everything about this home was amazing. Perfectly located to everything you might want to do in the area of Stockbridge. It was wonderful, at the end of the day, to return to a quiet, quaint and comfortable home. I've stayed in many VRBO homes and this place was for sure one of the best!

    The kitchen, well stocked with top quality cooking items, cleaning products, dishes, paper products and good coffee! The beds were extremely comfortable with high quality linens and pillows! Both bathrooms were impeccably clean and the shower head in the upstairs shower rocked! There were plenty of towels and extra linens. The living room furniture was so comfortable, in good condition, and there was plenty of space in the nooks and crannies of the home to sit in if you wanted quiet by yourself.

    It rained most of the weekend while we were there so the fire place was appreciated. However, if there when it's nice outside, the patio had great furniture and the yard and gardens were a pleasure to look at. The "little touches" were endless. We were truly challenged with the decision of "staying in" and enjoying all the home had to offer or get out and take part in all the surrounding area had to offer!

    I did not have the pleasure of meeting the owners in person but our communications through email and the packeted information that was waiting upon my arrival provided me with all the information I needed to be comfortable and navigate the property. Honestly, I can not say enough positive regarding this property. I will certainly return!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about the Redway House. This was the perfect getaway for my mothers 70th birthday. We stayed two nights over Columbus Day weekend. The Redway is cozy and comfortable, fully stocked with everything you may need. THe owners are available with any questions you may have and also communicated with us as to when we could get to the house...early!! Perfect location for a quiet weekend from sitting on the deck in the evening listening to the owls or a leisurely stroll downtown in the shops and for a couple drinks. The home itself, what can we say? We didn't want to leave. The furniture is beautiful and I cannot say enough about how comfortable every single bed in the house was, I didn't want to get out of it in the morning. I cannot wait for my next trip to the Redway house. You will not be disappointed by staying at this fantastic home. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your family gem with the rest of us.

    We had a wonderful 9-night stay at the Redway House. From the peace and quiet of the location to the extremely well-equipped kitchen and charming dining room and from the pleasant deck overlooking a sloping lawn to the comfortable bedrooms upstairs, we really enjoyed this well-maintained colonial house. We also loved its convenience to everything: a few minutes to the Norman Rockwell and Botanical Gardens, a short drive to West Stockbridge, Stockbridge, Lenox and Great Barrington. The location couldn't be better. The owner was so responsive and helpful with every question we had and very interested in hearing ways to make improvements, no matter how small. We took advantage of the Berkshire cultural attractions: Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Mass MOCA, the Mount and music at Castle Street. I only regret that we didn't discover the trails on the property until the last day--but next time we visit, we will definitely explore those. We are already talking about our next visit!

    We enjoyed our stay in this peaceful, well-appointed home surrounded by tall trees. Our daughter played with the hose in the yard, singing and dancing happily, when we weren't seeing art museums, shopping in town, or exploring the Stockbridge bowl. We ate breakfast out on the patio in the morning sunshine and, in the evening, grilled steaks for dinner. The house is close enough to town and yet situated in a lush and private expanse of woods. The landlord was gracious and responsive, a pleasure to communicate with. We will rent here again.

    Reviewed by: Sarah C. on

    Comment:

    The house was perfectly decorated and was convenient. Usually, when I see convenient listed in a description, it means close to the highway and miserable. Not so at this lovely house-- You are nestled in a side road only locals travel down, and you have no traffic to fight to get to the Norman Rockwell museum or the Berkshire Botanical Garden (4-5 minutes, tops). You're also a convenient drive to Tanglewood (It took us only 20 minutes to drive and park, and that included the well known pre-show traffic). Additionally, you can hike the 114 acres on this property, which we did with our young child and our dog. However, the most delightful part of this house is the history, the attention to detail, and the care the owners take with the property and the welcome that they give. I did not meet them personally, only through email, but as you communicate by email and then walk through the house, you can feel the care and warmth they have for their guests. A few examples: when we arrived the table was set for all of us, when we were thinking we should have brought our cooler to go out to Tanglewood, we found a cooler with blue ice and a blanket all set to go at the house, finally, when we were tired at the end of the day, we found a great set of historic books to browse in the library while we put up our feet and sipped wine at Liza's wine sipping table. Details! I highly recommend this property for a trip to the Berkshires. Hopefully, after I write this heartfelt and glowing recommendation, I can still manage to slip in to this summer rental next year and not find it booked solid!
