Susan and Terry purchased this cottage in 2016
Why Susan and Terry chose Stockbridge
After spending two years in the search for a special property in the Berkshires, we bought "The Chicken House" because it overlooks the Housatonic River, its long, storied history and the ideal location in the center of the Berkshires. It also offered some unique architectural challenges. The Chicken House was charming but needed a total renovation to restore it to a high standard of living. We spent a year in restructuring and bringing it into the 21st century; it is now a wonderful retreat for our guests. In 2018 we completed the renovation of the barn nearby which is now our home.
What makes this cottage unique
The location is exceptional and unique. It offers privacy and riverside beauty in the very center of Stockbridge. Not only are the views spectacular, it offers a closer look at the river birds and animals in their habitat. Nights are starry, while the days offer an abundance of nature, culture or sports. Stockbridge restaurants are a short walk away. The Chicken House is the perfect getaway with contemporary comforts and it is located within 10-20 minutes from all the cultural events in the Berkshires. Return to the cottage after a day spent touring, hiking, shopping or visiting one of the many museums in the area and relax before evening activities; choose to walk five minutes to one of the Stockbridge restaurants for dinner, grill or cook in the fully equipped kitchen at the cottage. During the winter months skiing is available and convenient. There are may ski slopes to choose from for the beginner to the expert. It is beautiful winter wonderland.
