About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

A Tanglewood-lover's haven, this is a tiny but comfortable historic cottage set in the heart of Lenox. The professionally decorated house is within walking distance of Tanglewood and Shakespeare & Co., and of course all the galleries, shops, and restaurants for which Lenox is famous. Numerous hiking trails are close by (beautiful Kennedy Park is a short walk away), as are Laurel Lake and Stockbridge Bowl - both with public access for boaters, and sandy beaches for swimmers and sunbathers alike. Winter sports - downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, skating, snowshoeing etc. - are within easy reach. All the attractions of the Berkshires, both North and South County, are just a short drive away.

The kitchen has maple cabinets, granite countertops and a beautiful cork floor. The bathroom (shower, no tub) is carefully designed for comfort and functionality. There is a small fenced and landscaped back yard to contain little people and well-behaved four-legged family members.

Amazing cottage in the center of town!

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable! While small, it has everything you could possibly need and is beautifully decorated. It was right downtown and was perfectly located. It was a fast and easy walk to all the bars and restaurants of Lenox. Also, Penny was great. She responded promptly and was very accomodating.

A Perfect Cottage in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking to get away from the city for Thanksgiving weekend with our dog, to a place where we can enjoy the outdoors but still have amenities such as good food.

We were so lucky, and happy, to have found Penny's cottage, which is truly in the center of Lenox. Great dining options are literally a doorstep away. We were within walking distance of Kennedy Park as well, which had great hiking trails, and was even more fun with the snow. Our friends live in Lee, which was only a 10 minute drive away. It was the perfect location.

The house itself was the perfect size for us - a couple and a dog. It is very cozy, clean, and well maintained. There is a small fenced in backyard which our dog very much enjoyed (especially coming from an apartment in the city).

And finally, Penny was great. She made our stay seamless. She is responsive and understanding. We couldn't have asked for anything more, really. We can't wait until our next trip to the Berkshires and will definitely stay here again. Thank you Penny!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Vi. You obviously made very good use of your time in Lenox and did a lot ... I'm glad the cottage proved to be a good jumping-off spot!

Perfect spot in the heart of Lenox

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is adorable and the perfect size for a couple (and a pup). It is well-situated in the heart of Lenox to walk to everything. We had a minor issue with the Wi-Fi not working, but Penny addressed in a reasonable amount of time. I wouldn't suggest this for larger groups, unless your stay will be very short.

Great place. Easy rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Valerie. My apologies again about the WiFi, it took me a little while to figure out what was wrong.. You're absolutely right about limiting the number of people in this little house ... but for two it seems to be ideal.

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and our Pug) enjoyed a relaxing time in Lenox. The house was very clean and is within easy walking distance to shops, cafes, etc. I'd like to thank Penny for letting us adjust our arrival date after we had already booked the vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage, and was happy to change the dates ... making adjustments for guests is no problem at all if they're not going to impact anyone else's booking!

Pleasant and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this tidy little house. We stayed in early springtime and were treated to lovely birdsongs and the flowers bursting into bloom as we sat on the front porch. The house is well equipped, we had everything we needed and best of all, it was a quick walk to the many shops and restaurants in Lenox.
