Housatonic House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This house is a perfect family retreat in the Berkshires. Nestled in the Village of Housatonic you will be centrally located to all Berkshire attractions. Less that ten minutes from skiing and Tanglewood, as well as the shops and restaurants of Stockbridge, Lenox, and Great Barrington, this is really the ideal Berkshire location. Whether you are a dedicated foodie wanting nearby access to local, sustainable food or a 'bookie' who wants to curl in and finish that long neglected novel, this is the place for you.

This is the 6th house that we have rented in last 5 years through VRBO. This was very disappointing.

The pictures of the outside was not was the house was in real time. The trees and bushes were so over grown that you could not even use the front door. To light the stove you had to use a match each time. The oven did not work and the owner could not get anyone to fix it until we had gone 9 nights without the oven. We told him to fix it on his time. He had been at the house the week before so he knew he was leaving a house for a paying tenant with no oven. The water and ice dispenser on the refrigerator did not work. Upstairs, on the second floor, the wall paper was coming off and the walls were cracked. We paid top dollar for a house that was in terrible condition. We made the best of a terrible condition. The owner was not willing to do anything monetary to make up for this.

A delight!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely and comfortable house. Walking distance to Housatonic, a very short drive to Great Barrington. Rustic charm, cozy, warm, inviting, and plenty of space for eight adults. A delightful little porch looking over the yard, and a sweet enclosed porch that provided sheltered space when it became too chilly to sit outside. Best of all, everything was in working order... including plenty of hot water for showers! A well equipped kitchen, and a terrific dining area that easily accommodated ten adults. Clean, well-kept, hassle free... exactly what our gang was looking for. I'd come back again... and again.

Charming House in Housatonic Village

Great house and terrific location. We enjoyed our walks around Housatonic Village. Proximity to Tanglewood a plus. The house is spacious, clean and very charming. We would definitely stay again.
