The New York Times:

"An entire trip could be rewardingly mapped with this fat, oversized paperback. For the stay-at-homes, THE BERKSHIRE COTTAGES is the next best thing to being there."

Publisher's Weekly:

"The lifestyle of an aristocratic era comes a highly readable and enjoyable style...This journey through the past covers the lifestyle of an aristocratic era, complete with grandeur, social etiquette and discrimination among classes."

New York Magazine Best Bets:

"Owens documents Berkshire history with delightfully gossipy tales of the cottages and their inhabitants and with historic photos of the opulent interiors."


"Owens doesn't leave anyone out of her analysis of cottage life. There is an 'Upstairs, Downstairs' flavor."

The Berkshire Eagle:

"The Berkshire Cottages is the work of a dedicated fact finder. Owens captures the facts and the flavor of the Gilded Age in The Berkshires. The lives of the movers and shakers of 100 years ago are till - maybe endlessly - interesting."

Library Journal:

"The book is fun...recommended."
