Why George Manley chose Berkshires

Having looked at over 80 properties for purchase in the Bershires, the Taggart House is truly unique. This property is perfectly situated within 15 minutes of all the amenities and attractions in the southern Berkshires. This fully restored Victorian estate is a 5 minute walk to the center of Stockbridge, yet quietly situated on 3 manicured acres along the Housatonic River.

What makes this estate unique

The Taggart House is the perfect home for entertaining. With six large bedroom suites, a large formal dining room, a billiards room, an eat-in kitchen, a cozy reading room, a huge family room, and an optional grand ballroom for events, the Taggart House is both hospitable and opulent.

A charming, elegant and historic house with beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at Taggart House celebrating our son's wedding. The house is charming and we had suitable accommodations for our group of eleven. The owner was very pleasant to deal with. We enjoyed it immensely and hope to come back again to charming Stockbridge and Taggart House.

Owner's Response: This family rescheduled their rental dates twice as a result of cold weather. We made a special accommodations for them, and they still gave us a difficult time. Unfortunately, you can't please everyone ;)

Stunning Home! Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Taggart House! What a beautiful Victorian home and wonderful hosts! The house is huge and our group of 15 people never felt cramped. The property is very well equipped and is a short walk to main street and even hiking spots. I will highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

The kitchen is very well stocked and all the bedrooms are spacious and so are the bathrooms.

Family Reunion Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our ever growing family always looks forward to our annual getaway in the Berkshires. From grandparents, young parents, to little ones, the Taggart House has all that we could wish for! Kids can wander laps around the grand rooms. So much to explore! Adults can cozy up in reading nooks, nap nooks, and cookie nooks. Cooks will have fun in the large format kitchen with butlers pantry. Rare to find a house with en suite bathroom for all bedrooms. Enjoyed our walks to the town center and exploring ye old cemeteries and local architecture. Also close driving distance to grocery, antique shopping, restaurants and outlet shopping. Plus bonus, the owner, George, is the host with the most! We felt right at home! Would definitely recommend to large families looking for moments to gather as well as have private moments for R & R.
