About the Property

Jewel box cottage across from the Bowl

A sweet property by the Stockbridge Bowl, Interlaken Cottage.

Our cottage is wonderful place to use as your base for all that the Berkshires has to offer! We have access to Tanglewood tickets and can help you choose the best seats for your needs and budget. We'll lend you all picnic equipment and more!

We took a 1950's cottage in a superb location and gut renovated it to create a luxurious and romantic hideaway for two. A place for quiet inspiration where you can enjoy the outdoors all day and world-class music and theater in the evenings.

Inside this jewel box cottage find a large great room with high ceilings, a queen-sized bed, gas fireplace, air conditioning, and loft with a 7' ceiling great for yoga, music study and a desk perfect for writing, thinking or working (if you must).

The house is equipped with high-speed internet, cable TV, Apple TV and a Sonos system. The house has its own iPad for your use while visiting.

The spacious screened living room is fully furnished to entertain or just kick back. You’ll also find an outdoor gas grill, a canoe and more.


The well-appointed kitchen has granite counters, Sub-Zero with ice maker, cook top, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher and is well supplied with utensils in case you want to prepare a meal. We have a Nespresso machine, Krups coffee maker, and an electric tea kettle. We include Nespresso pods, Depot 6 coffee (regular and decaf) and PG Tips tea. We're serious about our caffeine!

In the pantry you'll find organic granola, snacks and nuts. We'll stock your favorite soft drinks too!

The bathroom has been created with soothing gray stone, glass tile and white marble with an extra large shower. Find soap, shampoo and conditioner, lotion, and toothpaste.

The all new furnishings and finishes feature pieces from Restoration Hardware and local favorite Pine Cone Hill while also incorporating some sturdy antiques, art and other touches of comfort. The look and feel is inspired by our travels to serene, five star hotels all over the world.

Interlaken Cottage is air conditioned and heated so you can be assured you’ll be comfortable whatever the weather.

This brand-new and beautiful cottage is a wonderful place to start a new tradition in the Berkshires.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Both born in Brooklyn, we lived in Manhattan for many years before settling in Stockbridge in 2011. Peter is a graphic designer and Jess produces large corporate business events. Our interests include art, music, great food and the outdoors making the Berkshires an ideal place to live.

Why the Owner Chose Stockbridge, MA, USA:
We live walking distance to this property but our house does not have a screened porch or lake access. Jess walks for exercise and a favorite route is 'The Lake route' which takes her past this house. It was a rather sad looking place when she first saw it as it had not been lived in for a few years. Though it had no screen porch, it did have lake access and loads of potential so we decided to take it on as a renovation project. We now entertain on the screen porch, use the private community lake access right across the street for our canoe and house overflow guests. You'd never guess how many people want to come to visit the Berkshires!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The screened living room is a wonderful place to wile away the afternoon reading and an excellent place for cocktails and dinner before Tanglewood.
