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.

Great Stay Again

  • 5 of 5

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.

fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

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.

fabulous house, close to everything and very tranquil

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.
