About the Property

Large two-story cottage, sleeps 4 adults (plus no charge for children)

If you’ve driven by, you’ve wondered about the story of this beautiful stone building. Built in 1832 as a one-room schoolhouse – a function it served until 1950 -- this charming and historic building has been given new life as a guest house - since 1998.

Beautifully situated amidst horse farms on the scenic road to Mt Greylock. In the center of the Berkshires, 5 miles from Jiminy Peak ski area, 10 miles from South Williamstown, 15 miles from Tanglewood and Mass MoCA, and 20 miles from Jacob's Pillow. 5 miles to Pittsfield and the Berkshire Mall. Private garden. 5 acres of property in the back where horses and cows graze.

Everything is provided...: fully-furnished mostly with antiques. Bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels, iron and ironing board. Kitchen with mini stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, coffee - ground and beans, assorted teas and hot chocolate, pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, etc.

There are 2 floors. The first floor is the old classroom with old desks. There is also a trundle bed which can be used as 2 twins or 1 king size bed. The bathroom is on the first floor. The 2nd floor is like a studio apartment - there is a queen bed and a twin bed, plus floor space and mattresses for kids. Also, a small but complete kitchen. One bathroom, on first floor.


Ideal for a romantic getaway or for a family of 4-6. A fee of $25/night applies for additional adults after the first two. No extra charge for children. Please indicate the number of children in your message to us, but select 0 children in the pull-down menu so that you are not charged.

The Old Stone School is available to rent 12 months a year. Each season has it's benefits:

SPRING - Trees arise from winter sporing their fleeting Spring green color, daffodils, tulips, hiking trails are open, enjoy the warm weather after a long winter! Calves appear on the hill behind the schoolhouse.

SUMMER - Flowers blooming, berries to pick, outdoor activities nearby, culture everywhere - Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Barrington Stage, Clark Art Museum, MassMoCA, Williams College Museum of Art, etc.

FALL - Enjoy the kaleidoscope of Fall colors covering the hills behind the schoolhouse. Hike Mt. Greylock - short and long hikes. Go the top and check out Bascom Lodge - a stop on the Appalachian Trail.

WINTER - Jiminy Peak is less than 10 mins. away.Ski or snow tube at Bousquet is 20 mins. away. Cross country Ski in the fields out back or go to Hilltop Orchards in Richmond or Notchview in Windsor.
