Lee farmhouse description

Experience a little of old New England. Our VRBO is a charming historic family farmhouse apartment(2100 square feet) with lots of room and comfort surrounded by 22 acres. Built in 1782, our farm was famous for breeding Plymouth Barred Rock chickens. About one hundred years ago, one of these barred rock roosters won the grand prize of $2000.00 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, that’s a lot of cash for the 1800’s! Many other grand prizes were won as well, and thus our rental unit has a built in wall safe that was used back then to hold the winnings (we don’t have the combination to the safe, but we have left a stethoscope there if you would like to try to crack the code.).

Built by the Bradley family, the farm was one of the first and largest dwellings in the area. To this day, the street is named Bradley St.. The river runs through our little valley, which sometimes brings Bald Eagles, Ospreys and Great Blue Herons migrating through. There also is a train track that brings an old fashioned freight train through, and you can even book a ride on the Berkshire Scenic Railway, which runs in the summer and early fall.

The natural beauty of the Berkshires is legendary. Scenic hills, tranquil lakes and gentle streams.

The Berkshires are famous for world class music and dance festivals. Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra is a ten minute drive from our location. It is an extraordinary music venue where serious music lovers can sit up close, while families or more casual listeners can relax and picnic on the beautiful expansive lawn. Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival is a treasure with the very best of dance from around the world. The property is wonderful for picnicking, as well as being very user friendly to families with children, offering many free events. Many other quality museums, galleries, historic places and entertainment are close by as well.

If culture is not exactly on your list, the Berkshires offers fantastic local shopping, outlet mall shopping, and antiquing. Dining opportunities for all tastes and budgets abound. Recreational opportunities are more than can be counted for any age and ability. Hiking, mountain biking, golf, kayaking, swimming, horseback riding, skiing, and snowboarding are all offered in a multitude of locations in the immediate area. We are just a few minutes away from October Mountain State Forest and Bear Town State Forest with hundreds of miles of trails. The Appalachian Trail goes through Lee if you’d like to take a day hike (or more) on it. First class health and fitness experiences are available through the purchase of spa days at Canyon Ranch, a world famous health resort, (call ahead) and Kripalu, a world famous meditation and wellness center. For the kids, Six Flags amusement park is about 40 minutes away.For history buffs,the Silvio Conte Federal Archives allows you to trace your family tree.
