About the Property

Town and Country living with city amenities a friendly family location

Yes! Stocky, our waterfront cottage, and it's ideal location to Tanglewood . Stocky, your summer home away from home . We only have one tenant for our entire summer season of 2 months. . Stocky a quaint, simple 60's style cottage where you can enjoy the outdoors with the 2 available kayaks . Yes, walk out the back door ,to the dock and step into the kayaks (with vests) and explore the lake or paddle to the community beach, or take a walk in the woods. Perhaps relaxing on the porch or deck, reading or watching the occasional parade of kayaks paddling by while absorbing nature's calming, quiet, green scenery is your preference. A "jewel" of a location ( guest stated) where city amenities meet the beautiful countryside , away from the hustle and bustle and crowds of city life, yet near the wonderful world of culture like Tanglewood ,theaters, museums , and yoga (Kripalo) and fine dining with many located less than 3 miles from the cottage.

Possibly barbecuing and candlelight dinners on the screened porch are more to your liking , hearing nature's sounds and perchance to see a firefly glowing by, as if to say "HI", to lighten your night and thoughts. Meals on the porch use fewer steps having the convenient window pass through.

The simple kitchen ( no dishwasher) is equipped for your cooking and serving needs. The bar is a handy spot for your buffet, liquid or cookie breaks or a quick snack or lunch. Inside dining seats four, or easily more by just extending the table ends.

There are two bedrooms one with a king bed the second has twin beds, linens included.The couch folds back down as a bed for that occasional guest. The single bath has a shower.There is no washer dryer at the cottage.

There is basic cable TV and basic wifi, ceiling fans in bedrooms, kitchen, and dining area.

For your cultural interests beside Tanglewood, there is the Berkshire PLayhouse, Rockwell Museum,Mahaiwe or Colonial Theater,Shakespeare Theater, touring summer cottages which are in reality, mansions, built during the Gilded Age .

Additionally, the cottage can be used as a home base for further New England exploration where scenic drives can lead you to Williamstown to see the Clark Museum or Mass Moca , shopping at the Lee Outlet mall , antiquing, or hiking Mt Greyloch, the highest peak in Mass. and many more opportunities for further adventure.

Yes! Stocky! Make this your home for the entire summer season in the Berkshires ( including the 2 best holiday weekends of the summer),and come see what the Berkshires offer and are all about!!

About the owner: About US: Having been raised in NE and been to the Berkshires as a child, it was my hope and dream to enjoy the area as an adult with my family. We do not live close by, but we still enjoy the cottage with family and friends and many of the available activities including the beautiful surrounding enviornment so meticulously maintained . We want to share this wonderful experience with you and hope you too get to know and enjoy this "jewel" of a location as a friend so aptly called it and feel as if this is yours for a summer and love it as we do

Why the Owner Chose Stockbridge, MA, USA:
We love the simplicity of the small cottage, knowing the basics are here to live the simple life, with views of beautiful green hills surrounding you. This is a place where the sun in the later afternoon shines on the lake making it glisten and reflects into your living room creating a lovely golden glow. We love the surprising diversity of this rural life- a place to easily enjoy a quiet, country walk...., or than maybe attend a world reknown Tanglewood concert while sitting on the lawn and picnicing !!!. . A place where families can create memories, wonderful times, practice their paddling skills on the lake and enjoy the simple life, "STOCKY". Questions? Please contact us.... Joan and Ken
