Stockbridge house description

THE PERFECT house for a large family, or several families to share!! Designed by NYC architect, and built for several generations of his own family, this house is designed for both fun and relaxation. The concept was to build a luxury cabin in the woods, and the end product is a series of modern cabin-like structures that are loosely connected by glass and stone passageways that evoke the feeling of passing through the outside, without ever leaving the comforts of home.

Less than two miles from Tanglewood, this house has a fantastic location for whatever your interests are in the Berkshires, whether they be outdoors or in.

If you rent this home in summer,you will have rights to the private and lovely Beachwood Beach, and you will have free, unlimited use of the owners canoe, kayak, and the neccessary accessories like life jackets, oars etc.... in addition to the endless choice of activities all over the area. If you are renting the house in winter, and can drag yourself away from the fireplace, you will be close to Butternut, Bousquet, and Jiminy Peak alpine ski areas, as well as endless X-Country trails. Fall is perfect for leaf-peeping, hiking and exploring the amazing small towns dotting the entire county.

Hang out and enjoy the peace and quiet, or fill your day to the brim with all that is available in the four unique seasons of the Berkshires.

The first, main building houses the Great Room, Dining, Kitchen, Breakfast Nook, Mudroom, and Laundry Room. Anchored by a masonry stone fireplace this space is the heart of the home. The modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances is fully equipped for whatever cooking you have in mind. Off of the kitchen is a small deck with table and chairs, as well as a gas grill. Outside the Great Room double doors is a courtyard created by the placement of the cabins. It includes another small seating area and a beautifully landscaped surround. From every room in the house, you will see the lawn and gardens which meld into the woods beyond.

Another cabin houses the Master bedroom, with king sized bed, and his/hers separate bathrooms. 'Hers' has a jacuzzi tub, 'his' a stall shower. This is a private and romantic room with views towards the woods.

The third cabin houses two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed, and two full bathrooms, one with a tub and the other with a shower. At the end of this cabin, there is the much loved bunkroom that holds six people, each in a twin sized bed with it's own window and wall sconce for private reading! This is a crowd pleaser of a room for the little ones! Above these three spaces, on the second floor is the media room, which has an L-shaped sofa, flat screen TV, and games area.

Below these bedrooms is the lower level that contains two more bedrooms, with a shared bathroom. One bedroom has a king bed, the other has twins, that could also be made up as a king. The shared bath has a shower and two sinks.

The last cabin houses the garage, and above the garage is a screened porch which can only be described as 'tree-house' like. There is comfortable seating, for reading, napping and also a dining table up on high. It's a very separate area from the rest of the house, and perfect for those looking for a quiet getaway.

The property is 20 acres, and is mostly wooded. Just into the woods a short distance is a campfire area with natural seating.

                        My family recently stayed in this home with several other families. We have rented numerous properties through VRBO over the past 5 years, and this home not only exceeded our expectations, but far surpassed any property we ever have rented. The house was impeccably designed and decorated, both elegant and comfortable, and situated on a beautiful piece of property. The spacious design of the home afforded each family complete privacy and, at the same time, offered ample, welcoming, beautifully designed communal space. The kitchen was stocked like a private home, not a rental property, as was the rest of the home. The outdoor dining area and new grill was an added plus, as was the ability to walk to a lovely beach area in less than ten minutes. In short, we would unequivocally recommend this gorgeous home. And doing business with the owner was a true pleasure.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway.

                        Although the photos and description were accurate, they don't compare to the actual property. It's obvious the owners have a great deal of pride in this house. Our one week stay couldn't have been better (other than the bit of rain which we don't hold Hillary responsible for). The quality of the linens, kitchen utensils and everything else were well above what we might have expected in a rental. The entire house was clean and very comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious and the bunkroom was a HIT! We BBQd on the excellent grill and the landscaping was lovely. Walking to the lake was enjoyable and the proximity to towns, restaurants and other points of interest was fine. This property is NOT a house - it's a HOME! The icing on the cake was a pleasant and responsive owner. Hillary was wonderful to deal with and my family all look forward to our next visit.

                        My wife, three kids and I rented this house for most of the winter ski season with three other families. This house is truly special. It has real charm. The owner thoughtfully designed and appointed the house with every modern convenience. A spacious great room, with a georgous stone fireplace anchors the house. We spent a lot of time there in front of a roaring fire while we listening to Pandora. The home has wireless cable service so we were able to stream Pandora from our Iphones and use the provided audio cable to connect our phones to the home's mutli-zone, in-wall audio system. The large bonus room and the kid's bunkroom was also a big hit. The kids loved being able to transition from family time in the great room to kid's hangout time in the bonus room and finish the night off with a sleep over in the six bed bunkroom. The house is really versatile. We found this the perfect house for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the surrounding area.

                        I rented this phenomenal home for (my birthday) and a family reunion of 4 sisters plus spouses and children, of which 15 out of our 18 were able to attend. I completely concur with the previous reviews. The owners have done a remarkable job of creating a home that is conducive to both gathering AND to separating as desired. We ranged in age from 12 to 65, as well as in preferences for rest , relaxation, sleep, to the get-up and go, see, do, try everything the Berkshires has to offer. Some of us were early risers, some of us late night talkers/card players. All of us cooked, cleaned and ate a lot together at the wonderful dining table for dinner, but often in smaller groups for other meals at the various seating options throughout the property! This house and grounds accommodated all of us with luxury, ease, peaceful quiet, beauty and great comfort. Whatever we needed could be found, from lightbulbs to blankets for Tanglewood, to airbeds for the screen porch. We had one or two minor issues that were answered and resolved in a prompt, courteous and friendly fashion by the caretaker. Making arrangements and terms with Hillary felt like I was communicating with an old friend…very low key, personable and approachable. My sisters and their families were amazed by this house, and all had a most remarkable vacation. It is a one of a kind spot that my family will remember and recall with great appreciation and affection.

                        I've rented many vacation homes over the last few years (usually through vrbo) and this is objectively the nicest one in its price range. The house itself is massive and accommodated our four families easily, with plenty of room leftover for overnight guests. The living room is huge and comfortable, and the bedrooms (while not huge) are clean and modern, most with their own bathrooms. The property surrounding the house was lovely, completely secluded among tall trees in the woods but with expansive lawns for playing. The lake was about a ten minute walk from the house (though you'll probably want to drive if you have any gear). We went just about everyday; it was shady and picturesque and had picnic tables and even beach chairs. The beach itself was sandy and the water was shallow, which was ideal for our young kids who could walk out pretty far on their own and still be in water that wasn't over their head. The beach isn't private to the house, but was pretty empty most of the time we were there. Most notable, though, was that the house really felt like a home. It was beatifully appointed and tastefully decorated, as if the owners still live there, rather than rent it out. The kitchen is modern and fully stocked. If your tendancy is to travel with your own pepper grinder and chef's knife, only to find that the house you rented doesn't even have a cutting board, you don't have to worry: the owners are obviously cooks and have just about everything you'd find in your own kitchen, from micro-planer to coffee maker. You can leave your pepper grinder at home. As far as best location in the Berkshires? Maybe, but we didn't need to stray far from the house or lake.

                        We rented this home with three other families...all with kids. It's a wonderfully equipped home on a gorgeous private property and is a short walk from a very private and peaceful lake. The property itself has a great lawn for playing with kids (toss a ball, play croquet, run around).....it's set back from the road by a long, winding gravel driveway....so the kids could play outside safely. The home has a large, high ceilinged living room that is great for gathering...and a long dining table that made mealtimes a wonderful gathering. Home is 10 mins from Stockbridge center, 10 mins from Lenox center and 10 mins from Tangelwood...perfect location.

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Stockbridge:
                      Our family has been spending time in the Berkshires for many years, and in 2000, when this amazing property in the heart of Stockbridge came on the market, we just could not resist the temptation to build our own retreat. We live our 'real' life outside of Manhattan, and access from our area is just as easy as it is from the Boston area, and all of CT. There is something in the Berkshires for everyone, whether you like culture, the outdoors, summer, winter, fall or just sitting by a fire reading and playing games with your family.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have it all! Biking, hiking, walking, nature preserves, skiing, theatre, music, shopping, antiquing, outlets, craft shows, galleries, spas, you name it!
