Lee guest house description

NOW TAKING SUMMER RESERVATIONS - a beautiful time to be in the Berkshires. This cherished hillside retreat has been our family home since 1940. It was renovated in 2008 for vacation rental, after our parents move. Two acres of lawn and field surround the house. Views of the neighborhood and distant mountains can be seen from anywhere on the property. The Town Forest abuts the property The house is located between Lee and Lenox, off Route 20, central to the wide array of activities that the Berkshires offer throughout the year. Tanglewood is within 5 miles, Laurel Lake (swimming, boating, fishing) is 1/2 mile away. Shops and restaurants on Main Street are within walking distance (1 mile). Other Berkshire attractions such as the Norman Rockwell Museum, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Daniel Chester French studio, Edith Wharton's The Mount are all within ten miles. Winter skiing is within 20 miles, and fall foliage viewing abounds anywhere. Come, enjoy!

The kitchen and bath were completely renovated in 2008, with new fixtures and appliances, including Bosch washer and dryer. The house is equipped with Wi-Fi, a television in the living room, and one in the master bedroom.

There are three rooms downstairs: eat-in kitchen with a pantry; dining room, living room and a 1/2 bath. The second floor has three bedrooms and a full bath, shower only (no tub).

There is a comfortable, open porch that overlooks the hillside where lovely sunsets can be viewed. The hill continues behind the house into the Town Forest and walking trails. We would love to share this home with you and your family.

Car: Recommended

This lovely 1940 newly-renovated home is located on Circular Ave, off Route 20, between Lee and Lenox. There is easy access to the wonderful array of year-round cultural and recreational offerings. The home sits on a quiet hill surrounded by over two acres of lawn and field, and borders a Town Forest. Winter ski areas are within 20 miles. Tanglewood is within 5 miles. Edith Wharton's The Mount is within 3 miles. The Norman Rockwell Museum and Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival are within 10 miles, and Kripalu within 3 miles. The Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and the Clark art museum are a 45 minute drive. The Berkshires also offer excellent summer theatre, as well as the Shakespeare summer festival. There is great hiking at October Mountain (5 miles) or Mount Greylock (12 miles). This wonderful area offers a wide range of experiences, from simple relaxation on the porch or an evening at Tanglewood in summer, to great hiking in the fall and skiing in winter.

Other Activities: Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Norman Rockwell Museum, The Mount, Daniel Chester French Studio

Golf: Greenock Country Club, a public golf course facility, is located in Lee, and is a 5-minute drive from Coach House. Greenock is a lovely course, surrounded by mountain views.

Ski: Coach House is within 20 minutes of Butternut Basin, a wonderful family ski area, especially for beginning skiers. We are also within 20 minutes of Bousquets in Pittsfield, and 45 minutes to Jiminy Peak. This house on the hill offers lovely winter views! We would be pleased to welcome you to Coach House.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1940

About the owner: This house is our family home, which our parents purchased in 1940. They spent 70 years together in this hillside home, raising six children. My father was a local teacher and coach, my mother a local newspaper reporter and author. The house is now owned by the six children. Because the house is such a special place to all of us, we wanted to keep it in the family so that family and friends can continue to enjoy it. Come visit us!
