The house is on two acres of a park like setting with hundreds of pine trees, sprawling front lawn, and wrap around gardens, stone front porch and screened in back porch within walking distance to Stockbridge Bowl lake.

The home is centrally located in the heart of the Berkshires, just two minutes from Tanglewood and 10-30 minutes from almost everything Berkshireian.

Perfect setting for our book group!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a “home away from home.”

This light filled home was the perfect setting for the six of us who gathered for our book group weekend in the Berkshires!

The house was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The art incredible. It is a warm and comfortable (by every measure) home with every need anticipated. Anything you need to cook a meal is found in the gorgeous and thoughtfully laid out kitchen so we ended up eating our meals at home.

Excellent communication with the owner.

A privilege to enjoy this weekend with good friends amidst such comfort in this beautiful natural setting. We all plan to return!

Great retreat in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well-furnished home that is comfortable for a group for a weekend or longer. It was comfortable, attractive and quiet, and our group of 6 would be happy to return. It's near many attractions including restaurants and museums but still gives you a panoramic view of the woods. It's convenient to the Mass Pike but feels a world away. The owner was easy to deal with and welcoming.

What a wonderful place for our Book Club to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our Book Club takes an annual trip and this year went to the Berkshires because one member had never been there (from Chicago). the house was big enough for all six of us and the layout lent itself to our book discussions and just relaxing. We were met by a knowledgeable and very pleasant woman/housekeeper who went over everything we needed to know. House was clean and well maintained. decorating was excellent. beds were comfortable. We were wowed by the kitchen and bathrooms. The setting was quiet and the mist over the hills in the morning was beautiful. We visited the Rockwell Museum, Mass MOCA and had dinner at Chez Noue in Lee, MA. most of us had been to the area multiple times, but decided we would want to return to this house with family and friends another time. great setting for family gatherings in any season.

Charming home nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Henry has a lovely home with lots of little places to relax and refresh. The screened in porch in the woods was a beautiful place for friends to gather and enjoy being outside bug free. The kitchen was spacious and gracious. The bedrooms were terrific. Highly recommended.

BEAUTIFUL home, perfect location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Henry is wonderful, he greeted us at the house and gave us a quick run though of each of the rooms making sure to point out heat/ac units, extra towels, etc. all the things we would have spent time trying to figure out. His house is absolutely beautiful, the area is serene and we enjoyed some morning runs but so still only a few minutes from Lenox, everything was convenient. We loved our stay and are already thinking about when we can return next!
