About Barclay Hudson

This has been our summer house since I was born, when living in New York and Cambridge, MA.

This house has been the hub of our existence — a magical place with a deep 'sense of place' — whether we've been living in New York City or Boston or Santa Monica, California.

Barclay Hudson purchased this house in 1936

Absolute Perfection in a Spacious Berkshire Home!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up the driveway and approached this home - we felt like we had entered a different world! A stunning location, breathtaking views, privacy, and a beautiful home. Upon entering the house we found a perfect mix of rustic and modern.Beautifully renovated gourmet kitchen, and bathrooms, welcoming great room with fireplace and cozy wood burning stove, comfortable beds with luxurious linens to sink into.My husband and I spent the first week alone in this heavenly spot and then were joined with kids and cousins filling up all 5 bedrooms. We made some great meals together, went on incredible hikes close by, and all enjoyed nights out at The Lion's Den (underground cellar type tavern at the Stockbridge Red Lion Inn with local musicians) A short drive to Lee for grocery stores, restaurants and anything you need. Can't wait to come back in summer - it's 5 min to swimming and kayaking on Lake Garfield, close to Tanglewood and Jacobs Pillow, and Great Barrington. Owners were helpful, responsive, and in general just great people.This house really works for families - room to all gather together but enough space to find your own spot to relax in!
