About Elizabeth Erwin

We live full time in Montclair, NJ and our Berkshires cottage has been a magical getaway. It is a super fun retreat any time of year but particularly during the summer months -- when there is everything to do or nothing to do -- and either way works out just perfectly!

Elizabeth Erwin purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Elizabeth Erwin chose Lee

We had been visiting the Berkshires for 25 years and always knew we wanted a home here. This was the very first house we looked at and immediately fell in love with it. Had everything we wanted - high ceilings, sky lights, exposed wood beams, open and cozy layout, wood floors. property is private and secluded yet part of a friendly community and minutes from town... it immediately just felt like home. And now we can't stop smiling whenever we are here.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the best parts is sitting on the window seat of the sun porch and looking out into exquisite natural beauty. We also love snuggling up with a good book on this window seat -- or taking an afternoon nap. It is just the perfect space to simply just 'be.'
