About Helen and Josh Alspector
We bought this vacation property with thoughts for retirement. We currently live in Annapolis, MD, where we enjoy sailing. We have family in the Berkshires who enjoy all its offerings. We have vacationed in the Berkshires and enjoy swimming, boating, kayaking, hiking, and biking, as well as golf in the summer and skiing in the winter. We enjoy the foliage in the fall and culture all year round.
Helen and Josh Alspector purchased this House in 2014
Why Helen and Josh Alspector chose Stockbridge
This property fits our needs perfectly. It is neither too big or too small. We have updated it to a standard which we enjoy. The proximity and easy access to the lake was of primary importance. We needed enough space to include a gym and adequate storage, and sleeping accommodations for family and friends. We wanted to be in the Berkshires to enjoy the great outdoors, family, and culture.
What makes this House unique
The house has a lovely, private setting but is within a short distance of cultural venues, restaurants, shops, hiking trails, Stockbridge Bowl, ski slopes, and golf courses.
All I could ask for and more!
Stay here was perfect, clean, beautifully decorated home with all the kitchen appliances that I needed. Screened in dining room gave us all the experience of eating outdoors without the flies. Deck as two lounge chairs that were cozy and in shade in mid-late afternoon so I could relax outside without the necessary coverups that I needed. Very quiet and peaceful and the best was I learned how to kayak using their kayaks (didn't use their canoe because I had so much fun on my own.). Beautiful landscaping to look upon from my upstairs desk nook where I could write in peace with a tranquil setting.
Loved this place and it must be magnificent when the fall colors are in full swing.
This house is proximate to Lake Mic-Mac (sp.). That made it possible to kayak virtually every day.
For three straight years we have been going to Helen and Josh's house for a week or so in the summer. We have always found it very clean, comfortable and well appointed. In addition it has all the amenities one would want or need. Its proximity to Berkshire activities that we enjoy is wonderfully convenient. Music, theatre, museums, lectures, hiking, restaurants and what all are located within minutes. Plus Helen and Josh are very accommodating.
Thanks Don and Carla for your positive review. You have been perfect guests. We are happy that you enjoyed our home and your vacation.

Great Stay Again
For the second year we have enjoyed the Alspector home in Lenox. It is, first of all, spotless. Additionally it has all the needs for a very pleasant stay; kitchen materials that are accessible and easy to use, comfortable bed, available kayaks, conveniently located for Lenox, Stockbridge and the lake. We recommend it highly. We thank Helen and Josh for welcoming us for a second year.
Thanks so much Don and Carla for your lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed the house and hope to see you again.
a beautiful house in a great location
My family and I had a wonderful time!
We are so happy that you enjoyed the house and location. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family.
The interior of the house is well maintained, cozy and it was very easy to find everything we needed. All the rooms were furnished nicely and there were many places to relax, both inside and outside. We especially loved the screened in dining area and the deck. Lovely plants and foliage were an added attraction. The house is centrally located, near all the wonderful
places for sightseeing. We do not have any complaints. Our vacation was wonderful and we loved the house.
Thanks so much for your kind review. We are happy that you enjoyed our home and your vacation.
fabulous house, close to everything and very tranquil
We have just returned from a lovely, relaxing vacation of two weeks in the Berkshires. This house is exactly as pictured and described. It is very close to all of the cultural attractions in Lenox and Stockbridge, yet completely tranquil and surrounded by natural beauty. The owners were extremely thoughtful and generous, providing everything you could possibly need for your stay (all paper products, hand and body soaps, shampoo and conditioner, kitchen supplies including spices, coffee filters, plastic wrap, foil wrap, garbage bags, etc.). They met us at the house to show us around and made us feel very comfortable and free to enjoy our vacation. They also provided a binder filled with recommendations about activities in the area and other useful information. We took advantage of theater, restaurants, museums, the Berkshires Crafts Fair, and local sightseeing, while also being able to return each day to a beautiful house where we could completely relax and enjoy the surrounding scenery. We definitely recommend this house for your Berkshires vacation.
The area is rich with cultural activities including Tanglewood which is the home of the Boston Symphony during July and August. Shakespeare and Company is located in Lenox. Jacob's Pillow, a center for dance, is a short drive away. There are antique shops, art galleries, and museums close by. The Berkshires are spectacular for leaf peeping in the fall. In the winter, there is skiing at Bousquet, Butternut, and Jiminy Peak, all within driving distance. If you enjoy the great outdoors, you can hike, bike, kayak, canoe, swim, golf, and walk. To enrich your body and soul, Kripalu is less than five minutes away. Shopping and great restaurants are located in Stockbridge and Lenox.
