Located in downtown West Stockbridge, our home is within a short walk of several wonderful restaurants, cafes, parks and art galleries. The main house is quaint and comfortable with good energy and a country feel. There are two large bedrooms with ample closet space, a full bath on each floor, a fully stocked kitchen, laundry room, and two large porches with water views and lots of natural light.
This lovely old Berkshire home is a beautiful place for a summer stay.

About Susannah Gale
As a couple who truly love and appreciate the Berkshires for all it has to offer, we would be happy to share our home with you and will do our very best to make you feel welcomed and to help you enjoy your time here. Sincerely, Susannah and Ryan.
Susannah Gale purchased this Farmhouse in 2015
Why Susannah Gale chose West Stockbridge
We chose this home for both it's simple country charm as well as it's idyllic location. Aside from the picturesque river that runs through this old Mill town, West Stockbridge quietly affords a wonderful array of local shops and cafes within walking distance while maintaining a friendly, small town feeling. On the Tanglewood loop, there is no more central location for all of the natural and cultural activities that make the Berkshires so beautiful and special.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Running through the backyard, the Williams River brings a naturally peaceful balance to a very central locale. Songbirds, ducks and a great blue heron frequent the cattails while the river offers clean native and stocked trout. A warm cup of coffee or tea while watching the river drift by is a wonderful way to start the day.

Well equipped. Very clean. Quite.
Well equipped. Clean interior. Quite. Centrally located within the Birkshire.
For the third year in a row my daughter and I rented this charming, historical house on its peaceful river location. The owners are so lovely and dedicated that they brought a single bed down to the first floor and made a bedroom for me in their beautiful sunroom. Stairs are a challenge and there is conveniently a full bathroom off the kitchen. You simply cannot find more accomodating and gracious owners.
Very welcoming. Nice house fantastic location.
Great place in a cute little part of the Berkshires
Susannah was very friendly and helpful and the house was great. Had everything we needed and was nicely decorated. Great little lawn and comfy beds.
Exceptionally relaxing, comfortable home in picturesque Berskshires
The perfect home in the Berkshires, but located on quiet main street of West Stockbridge, overlooking the serene Williams River, within short walking distances of shops, restaurants, and coffee houses, yet only short driving distances from museums, art galleries, music halls, and more beautiful scenery. Susannah and Ryan were exceptionally friendly hosts, welcoming us warmly to their home, giving us a tour, and making us feel at home with their refreshments waiting on us when we arrived. The friendly atmosphere continued throughout our stay as we walked through town,and visited various restaurants and stores. The house had everything needed for a very comfortable stay and the cleanliness, neatness, and comfortable seating and sleeping were extraordinary. The wooden floors, furnishings, art, and enclosed back porch overlooking the river and yard,provided the feel of total relaxation and warm comfort we were looking to experience. Highly recommend for a short or long term visit.
Clean, comfortable home in an ideal location
We had a great time at Susannah's house celebrating the new year. She met us when we arrived and even had some delicious donuts out in the kitchen! She is a fantastic host, very responsive. The house was comfortable throughout during some very low temperatures outside. Great location- steps away from excellent coffee and restaurants. Hope to be back.
