Stockbridge house description

A 3BR single level family house with a sleeping loft.

The bedrooms are:
* one double bedroom with a queen bed,
* one single bedroom with a twin bed, with pop-up trundel (becomes king sized bed)
* one single bedroom with bunk beds (twin sized), and
* a sleeping loft with 2 twin beds and a one twin trundle that pulls out between them (does not rise).

There is one full bath (bathtub with shower) and one half bath.

There is a large living/dining room with full windows across the front of the house, a family room and a sitting room with a gorgeous stone fireplace (unfortunately non-working) and a reading nook. The house features a beautiful open floor plan, post and beam construction, hardwood floors throughout, the stone fireplace, and an outdoor seating area with a dining table and chairs. It is an easy walk to the town beach at Lake Mahkeenac (Stockbridge Bowl) (3 houses down and across the street).

The house is equipped with Wifi, TV with DVD player, cable with HBO & cinemax, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, oven, full refrigerator, central air and heat, linens and dishes/utensils. There are also two kayaks (a single and a double) and one canoe that may be used by guests. There is a 1 week minimum. Sorry we cannot accept pets and smoking is absolutely prohibited.

The house is in the ideal Berkshire location - halfway between the town centers of Lenox and Stockbridge and 1.5 miles from Tanglewood. Attractions within 5 to 10 minutes of the house include Berkshire Botanical Gardens, Naumkeag, Ventfort Hall, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theater Co., Undermountain Stables, Bartlett Farm Orchards, Stockbridge's Mission House, Canyon Ranch, Kripalu, the Norman Rockwell Museum. Downhill skiing is 15 minutes away at Ski Butternut and a little farther are Jiminy Peak, Catamount and Otis Ridge. Excellent hiking, biking, boating, antiquing, shopping and spas abound.

While so much of the Berkshires is to be enjoyed outdoors, some good rainy day activities include matinees at any one of the local theaters (live or cinema), visiting a local museum (the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield makes for a great day out with kids and the Clark in Williamstown is a first rate art museum) or for a more active day, there is bowling and mini-golf at the Cove Lanes in Great Barrington. Alternatively, you may just want to stay in, play games, do a puzzle or read a good book - we have plenty for you to use. Oh, and don't forget the outlets in Lee.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We are a family of five with three active children (ages 8-13) and a love of outdoor sports, family game night and the arts. We love that we can introduce our children to the arts in a setting where the arts are so important, but are also so playful that the children can really relate to what they see and hear.

                      Why the Owner Chose Stockbridge:
                      Our family chose the Berkshires for its natural beauty, abundant outdoor activities and cultural offerings. Only 2 hours from our home, it provides the ideal weekend getaway. It's a whole other world without requiring an exhausting journey. We have found ourselves at home here very quickly and are amazed that there is always something new to keep us engaged. We always look forward to coming back, year round.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love coming up in the summer for the lakes, bike riding, horseback riding, the plays and Tanglewood. The children especially love the local food (mostly the SoCo ice cream and Taft Farm pies). We have found wonderful day camps here for all of them. In the fall we love the leaf peeping and harvest activities, antiquing and art museums. In the winter, we love the skiing, snowshoeing and the peacefulness. The spring brings all of the new babies to the farms and the biking and kayaking seasons begin again.
