About randi matalon
My husband and I love this home and the property. Having two children who are very sporty it is hard for us to get there as previously. We believe a home is better with people in it and enjoying it. We do still use it and it is a home to us but time right now does not allow us to enjoy it the way we like to.
randi matalon purchased this Estate in 2009
Why randi matalon chose Austerlitz
This is a wonderful special property. It is fully appointed with all you need to enjoy a great and special weekend. Our caretake is right down the street which makes it nice for you to know if you have questions etc.
What makes this Estate unique
The setting is truly uniques and the pond is magnificent. It is serene, welcoming, and the feeling of the home and the property is very special. We fell in love with it the minute we saw it. It is special in the winter, summer and of course fall foliage in Sept/October

Sunny Pond is a beautiful retreat. Our family enjoyed making wonderful memories. The owners couldn’t have been any more accommodating. Can’t wait to return. Thank you for sharing your amazing home.
Beautiful property perfect for families
We had an incredible stay in Austerlitz. It's so clean and cozy. It was perfect for our group of young families. The toddlers loved the pond, the playground, and the playroom. It's close to hiking trails and a variety of other activities, but you don't have to leave the property to have a great time. Would definitely return.
Fantastic weekend at Sunny Pond
This house is amazing! There was plenty of room for our big group and everyone was extremely comfortable. A huge kitchen for all of our chef's and the a dining room that has a beautiful fireplace and view of the pond and could seat everyone at the table. The pond was chilly this time of year but it was a great way to wake up in the morning. The house was spotless and Randi was very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We will definitely come back again!
Beautiful, serene, fun for kids and their extended families
I had the pleasure of staying at Sunny Pond for five days with my husband and much of our extended family - including two young families and their children - ages 6 months, 4 1/2 years, and 6 years, and our lovely in-laws (co-grandparents of our young baby).
The house and the property have so many details that enhance the day-to-day enjoyment. The children loved the outdoor playground and indoor playroom. The chefs among us enjoyed the beautiful kitchen facilities (two dishwashers, two stoves, etc!) and gracious dining room. Ping pong was a terrific activity - in between the glorious time we spent swimming and relaxing in the beautiful pond.
There was more than enough room to comfortably accommodate all of us.
Out of house activities included the summer aerial park at Jiminy Peak, a small airplane museum, the Norman Rockwell Museum in Lenox, and Hancock Shaker Village. The nearby town of Chatham is quite charming. The restaurant, Our Daily Bread was a delicious and relaxing way to spend time one afternoon.
Sunny Pond is an ideal place for a multi-generational group to have a fun and relaxing time together.
A perfect vacation property
This was our first time renting a vacation house and this property surpassed all of our expectations. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting, a more fantastic house, or a more accommodating and caring owner. The teenage children spent hours in the pond swimming, fishing, kayaking and using the pedal boat. Seven adults were able to work in the kitchen at the same time without getting in each other's way. We took advantage of the gym, the ping pong table and the outdoor grill. Our children and grandchildren all agreed that we found the perfect vacation site to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Because of some illness in the family, several members were not able to join us. But we all agreed that this was a vacation worth repeating when all of our children and grandchildren can be with us. Randi was wonderful to deal with and we thank her for her kindness and understanding.

This house is great!
We were 10 guys all turning 50 in 2018. We grew up together in New Haven CT, and this house was a perfect reunion spot, not too far from where many of us still live. Everyone had their own bedroom. The local holes that Randi included in her recommendations for the area were perfect!
