Really enjoyed 'The Dolly' apartment at the Garfield House

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very neat, very homey, really cute and clean. We met the owners and they were so nice. Lynn brought us many up to date brochures and her husband talked with us about hiking and golfing in the area, things that we were interested in doing. Lynn put fresh mums on the porch, (and we enjoyed sitting out there after being on the go all day), there was some fresh fruit and flowers on the table when we arrived - all nice touches - very welcoming. The location was great - we had a terrific golf course - Cranwell - only minutes away. We could walk into the town of Lee and there were some excellent restaurants there. Had a great time and highly recommend this rental.

Quaint, spacious and well-appointed just minutes to Tanglewood

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful 1 bedroom apartment in a large 19th century colonial home. Well appointed furnishings, our dog was welcome and perfectly comfortable during our stay. Walking distance to restaurants and shops in Lee and just a few miles from Tanglewood and downtown Lenox. We hope to be back for another relaxing weekend in the country!

A Charming Place in Lee

  • 5 of 5

This was a quaint and charming one bedroom place with a lot of character. It was spacious with a fair amount of natural light. Apart from the bedroom, the living cum dining area has a nice big couch that, I think, can be converted into a bed. The bathroom is pretty large too. Although the kitchen was small, it had some of the standard appliances like a fridge (small), microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven. It did not have a cooking ring/range nor any pots & pans -- so not really fit for cooking. However, the place was well stocked with crockery, cutlery, tea/coffee etc. There was also no dearth of closet space. My favorite part of the house was the porch with the lounge seats. The location of the apartment was perfect -- right on the Main Street of Lee but at the same time, at some distance from the shops. This allowed us to sit on the porch, read, relax, people watch without having to deal with the constant hum of foot traffic.

Both Jeff (the owner) and John (the caretaker) were wonderful to interact with. Caring, thoughtful and very responsive.

Overall, a perfect getaway for the weekend. Would love to go back again.

Great location, great price

  • 4 of 5

We had scouted Garfield House when staying elsewhere in Lee last year. We already knew it was a great location for us (convenient to Jacob's Pillow and Tanglewood and near to many good restaurants in Lee), so we decided to book it when we saw the price. The layout of the unit is a bit unusual and the kitchenette a little cramped, but it was easy to adjust The porch on Lee's main street was a relaxing place to spend some time while deciding where to go for dinner.

We are a couple in our early 70's who have been going to the Berkshires for more than 40 years,staying in many different places, and we would likely book Garfield House again, if we could. Owner Jeff Canon was gracious and helpful.

Such a relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The "Dolly" is a charming apartment in the heart of the Berkshires. We are a couple in our 60s. We planned our 5 day stay around a visit to Tanglewood for the Four Voices concert. The apartment is very comfortable, and well stocked. The kitchenette is small, but had everything we needed for coffee and breakfast..We planned to eat our other meals out. I would recommend this property!
