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!

The apartment was very clean, the bed comfortable. It was quiet, and it had everything needed to be comfortable. Will definitely be back when in the Berkshires. It was really great!

Comfy & convenient

  • 4 of 5

Cozy apartment with everything you need. Comfy bed, strong hot shower ~ why rent a hotel when you can rent this cute apartment. Relax on the porch with your coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Walking distance to restaurants & shops. Grocery store & pharmacy super duper close in case you forgot something. Would definitely rent again ~ THANK YOU
