About Linda McManmon

We are grandparents of 12 beautiful, intelligent, perfectly amazing grandchildren. (Our objective opinion!) We are also both retired teachers and basketball coaches. Our family is the joy of our life and our home reflects this. Creating a comfortable, healthy environment is a gift that we wish to share with you. Lee is aptly known as the 'Gateway to the Berkshires' and after experiencing our home and the surrounding area, we know you will agree!!

Linda McManmon purchased this house in 1996

Why Linda McManmon chose Lee

The Berkshires is an unique area of western Massachuetts, surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains, and centered between New York City and Boston. Small town friendliness, safe neighborhoods, great schools, and a renewed downtown quickly becoming an art center in itself, Lee is centrally located to all the world famous cultural and scenic beauty of the Berkshires as well as shopping, great dining, organic living and recreational activities year round. Once you experience it, you will be hooked!

What makes this house unique

-Healthy, comfortable, relaxing country living.

-Great central location in the Berkshires.

-Less than two and a half hours from Boston or

New York City.

- Winter family fun with 4 ski resorts nearby day and

night.

-This is our home when you are not here. When you are here, are goal is for you to fall in love with the personal comforts that make our house a home, and consider it your home away from home.

a large 2 nd floor apartment

  • 4 of 5

we as old people struggled with our heavy suitcases getting in and out, but they helped. The

place was clean and spacious. A little buggy one night with mosquitos, perhaps a loose screen

We enjoyed it The steps were a challenge to me being 80 YO

Fabulous House with so many extra touches

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house this past weekend with four other women friends. We are all seasoned travelers and renting on VRBO is not new to us.....................this house is a gem. It is beautifully decorated in a peaceful setting, there were great gathering spaces throughout the house and it's nestled in a lovely wooded area. This is a fabulous location. The kitchen is well stocked and easy to use and we cooked dinner and breakfast. I would not hesitate to come back or rent this home for a week. It's a fabulous, fabulous house.

Great weekend get away in the Berkshires!!

  • 5 of 5

Linda was a great host & tour guide! We loved our stay in her house. Perfect for our group (2 families with little kids). The sand box, the little outdoor play house, the books, toys and Netflix ;-) were a big hit. The fenced porch is great to enjoy the warm summer nights without mosquitos. Come see for yourself!

Magnificent, well equipped gourmet kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family get together and we all love to cook. The kitchen is so well equipped with an exceptional variety of spices and herbs and everything a gourmet cook can dream off, feeling almost in paradise. We also used the Weber grill on the porch.

The house is tastefully furnished and very comfortable and Linda and Doug were really so helpful throughout our stay and giving tips where to go and what to see. We will definitely be back when we are in the area again.
