About Madelyn Bonnot Griffin

We live an hour away near Amherst in Sunderland, Ma and also have a home in New Orleans, my home town, that we also rent. Other than our 5 wonderful, grown kids and entertaining our friends & family, exotic travel is our big passion. Curt is a wildlife biologist that brings him to Botswana annually to work on his elephant projects. I am a broadcaster, also fascinated and a student of alternative medicine. We hope you love our home in Lenox as much as we do! It's lovely, peaceful and fun!

Madelyn Bonnot Griffin purchased this House in 2012

Why Madelyn Bonnot Griffin chose Lenox

After a weekend at Kripalu and visits to the UltraWellness Center, I fell in love with Lenox! Its natural beauty, cultural richness, cosmopolitan flare, interesting residents & great restaurants were captivating. Also, it is a health-conscious community and that is very important to us. We had to be here!

                                                                Fabulous stay at the Dutch House.

                                                                My family stayed at the Dutch House for a weekend in October. We were in Lenox for a wedding. Everything was perfect. The house is so cute, homey, well equipped and impeccably clean. We were greeted with a nice bottle of wine and sparkling water courtesy of our hosts. I would highly recommend this home. Hope to come back when we have more time. Madelyn and Curt were a pleasure to deal with great communication.

                                                                Dear Michael,

                                                                My apologies for our delayed response. Thank you so much for your kind review! We truly look forward to your joining us in the future! You are always welcome!

                                                                Warm wishes and thanks,

                                                                Madelyn

                                                                the home was lovely and comfortable

                                                                Constance G.

                                                                This home was cozy and comfortable- rooms were nicely decorated and the screened porch was great.

                                                                What I missed was sun- the lot is well shaded and not much sun got through - this is neither good or bad- but a matter of preference. I need sun in the morning. I also was looking for more privacy- again a matter of personal preference. Street and neighbor's were close.

                                                                The only criticism of the house- was the sofa in the living room- which, while comfortable and spacious- looked a bit tired and unclean. Everything else was immaculate. We did have a wonderful time though.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Hi Constance,

                                                                Thank you so much for your review and for choosing our home for your holiday!

                                                                I'm so sorry that you didn't have enough sun. I'm a sun person too so I do understand but usually we get a good amount. The lot is

                                                                fairly spacious and somewhat private...sorry that they were too close for you.

                                                                The sofa is mid century and was recently cleaned. FYI, we are considering

                                                                replacing the living room seating!

                                                                Despite this I do hope that you'll consider us again in the future. We do appreciate your input. Thank you again for staying with us!

                                                                Warmest wishes,

                                                                Madelyn

                                                                Excellent Home Away from Home

                                                                Lisa H.

                                                                My wife and I stayed here with her sister and brother in law for five nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and were impressed with how perfectly appointed and spotless the place was. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to cook full meals at home. The house is set up for a relaxing vacation with a comfortable living room/dining area, a beautiful screened porch, and the most comfortable beds in both rooms. Every detail was thought through, right down to the exceptional bed linens and towels. Each room was equipped with an air conditioner that was a relief on one particularly humid night.

                                                                The location is perfect for exploring Western Mass. My wife and I come to the area at least once a year, and were showing my in laws the area for the first time. It was the perfect base to go off and explore the Hancock Shaker Village, MassMOCA, Great Barrington, the Dreamaway Lodge, and even Storm King Sculpture Park and Dia Beacon in New York State. It was a treat to be within walking distance to the town of Lenox. We almost felt justified in indulging in the amazing pastries at Patisserie Lenox.

                                                                I highly recommend the house. Madelyn is a fantastic host and provides a perfect home away from home.
