Property description

Spend your summer , we only have one tenant at our cottage for the entire summer season ( 2 & 1/2 months minimum) a quaint, simple 60's style cottage where you can enjoy the outdoors kayaking ( out your back door) or walking in the woods or rather pursue the wonderful world of culture.: top notch theater and orchestra, museums, Kripalo yoga center, zagat rated restaurants and more . Many activities less than 3 miles from the cottage in a beautifully rural enviornment .
Walk out the back door to the dock and step into the kayaks (with vests) and explore the lake or paddle to the Beachwood Beach. Perhaps just relax on the porch or deck, reading or watching the occasional parade of kayaks paddling by and absorbing the green calming idyllic nature.
Perhaps barbecueing and a candlelight dinner on the screened porch is more to your enjoyment where you hear the evening nature sounds and perchance see a firefly glowing by, as if to say "HI", to lighten your night and thoughts. Meals on the porch become quite easy to serve as the kitchen window can be opened to conveniently pass prepared items through to the porch and back. Maybe your interests include a delightful Tanglewood performance as a conclusion to a memorable night.
The simple kitchen is equipped for your cooking and serving needs. The bar is a handy spot for liquid refreshment or cookie breaks or for just serving your buffet. Inside dining seats four, or easily more by just extending the table ends.
Their are two bedrooms one a king the second bedroom has twin beds, linens included.The sofa folds back down as a bed for that occasional guest. The one bathroom has a shower and towels are provided.
Basic cable TV and basic wifi, ceiling fans in bedrooms, kitchen, dining are provided.
For your cultural preferance there is a seeming endless list very close by but not limited to Tanglewood, Berkshire PLayhouse, Rockwell Museum,Mahaiwe or Colonial Theater,Shakespeare Theater. Tourning summer cottages which are in reality, mansions, built during the Gilded Age helps you understand the history of the area.
If your interests lead to eating out, there are many fine dining and zagat rated restaurants available nearby for you to savor.
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 other Mass Moca or hiking Mt Greyloch, the highest peak in Mass.

About the owner: About US: Having been raised in NE and exposed 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
