About Mark Sena and Linda Saul-Sena
We primarily live in Florida, but our family has ties to New England. In 2013, after a seven-year search for a "magical" property that had the five features we wanted -- a distinctive architectural style, more than 10 acres, mountain views, a water feature and within 20 minutes to most of our favorite Berkshires places -- we bought Windfall Hill. During our lives, we have been involved in community building, preservation and the arts, which explains our love of the Berkshires and our stone house.
Mark Sena and Linda Saul-Sena purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2013
Why Mark Sena and Linda Saul-Sena chose Monterey
Originally built in 1740, then expanded in 1835 and renovated/improved since then, the property is known by Monterey residents as "the Stone House." It is an excellent architectural example of a time gone by, but has been sensitively updated and renovated to a comfortable, gracious and beautiful standard that makes it the perfect Berkshires get-away.

Historical gem in the Berkshires.
We loved this property so much that we returned again for a second summer getaway. The hosts have thought of everything to make a stay effortless, comfortable and welcoming. Every element is a combination of historical charm and modern convenience. From the recently renovated kitchen to the dining room seating 12 to Amazon Fire in the den, we found ourselves needing nor wanting anything more to make our stay perfect. The lovely grounds and inviting pool area were also highlights of our stay.
Beautiful home, grounds, pool and location.
Charming property and host. As first-time HomeAway guests, our expectations were exceeded by the entire package. Beautifully appointed and landscaped, magnificent pool, brand-new kitchen with every amenity (including ice-cream maker!) conceivable. Close enough to Great Barrington to make shopping, dining, movies, etc., convenient but far enough away to feel somewhat remote. (Note: we hesitate to recommend too highly, as we don't want more competition to rent the property again in the future!)
Spacious by cozy!
Stayed at this property for a weekend get away in February and have nothing but great things to report. The house is quite large but manages to feel cozy at the same time! This is due in large part to the unique and beautiful furnishings. Great kitchen to cook in, beds are comfortable and expansive grounds. Highly recommended!
A beautiful week in the country.
I spent a week in this beautiful house in August. The Senas were very accommodating and took great care in making sure I was taken care of before and during my stay.
The house is laid out wonderfully; I felt as though I was being whisked away to the European countryside while staying there. It was clean, well maintained, and the pool was beautiful. It was a quick drive into town where we had a charming dinner, and the property is not far from some great trails; the weather happened to be perfect for hiking while we stayed.
I look forward to staying here in summers to come, and could not recommend this house more!
The town of Monterey is considered one of the best in the Berkshires due to its proximity to Great Barrington and that fact that it has three lakes, gorgeous hiking trails and one of the most charming general stores anywhere.
