Charming Cottage On Stockbridge Bowl
Why Jennifer Whalen chose Stockbridge
This property has a new kitchen and bath and all new furniture, mattresses and bedding. It is a very relaxing retreat down the road from Tanglewood and Kripalu , the Botanical Center, Rockwell Museum and Stockbridge. Bring a kayak or paddleboard and you are good to go or simply enjoy the beautiful scenery of the lake from your perch on the screened in porch or lounge chair on the patio .
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This cottage met our needs nicely for our 3 day stay in the Berkshires. We were able to launch our kayaks into the Stockbridge Bowl inlet right from the backyard. Tanglewood was only a five minute drive. Kitchen and bathroom were spacious. The bedrooms, each with two twin beds were a bit small but otherwise comfortable. Although we did not need it during our stay, there was one AC unit in one of the bedrooms.
The living room also now has an air conditioner , and the master bedroom has a new king size bed with plenty of room still to spare!
Thank you for staying with us. Glad you enjoyed your stay directly on beautiful Stockbridge Bowl.
Cozy lakeside home
We spent our anniversary weekend at this clean, cozy home with a beautiful view of the water. The autumn color was gorgeous. We watched a beaver in the water while enjoying breakfast. We were able to hike, kayak, visit great restaurants and museums and all were very close by. The home had everything we needed and Jennifer even left snacks, coffees and other drinks. We would definitely return!
I am so happy you enjoyed your Anniversary in the Berkshires. It is so lovely on the lake this time of years and the color of the leaves is spectacular ! Thank you for staying at 32 Lake Drive and please come again !
My daughter and I truly enjoyed our stay - the cottage was perfect for us. Quiet, gorgeous view and great location. Would definitely recommend. Jennifer was amazing too.
The place was all it claimed to be. Excellent.
My only reservation is my anxiety about unpaved roads at night. Next time, I might simply butya flashlight and walk to Tanglewood events! In truth, I never had to encounter a car coming the other way, so this "complaint" is minor. The setting is all it claims to be. The decor is a little odd, but there is so much room in the place. Admittedly, I was alone, but I think four people (there are only four beds) would be able to find their own place and avoid one another the entire time! There is a patio, enclosed porch, living room, and two bedrooms. It is incredibly convenient to Stockbridge, West Stockbridge, Great Barrington, and Lenox. If you want to walk, best do so in the morning and during the week, although in truth, the roads were all manageable even when crowded. Please include directions to Stockbridge Landfill. My GPS didn't know what to make of the address (despite being incredibly easy to access). Bill MacGillivray
Charming cottage on the water
My husband, 15 year old daughter and myself had a wonderful three days at this cottage. It was directly on the outlet (or is it an inlet?) of Stockbridge Bowl. Very, very peaceful. There is another house next door, but even when it was occupied it was fairly quiet as it's angled away from this house. The cottage itself is beautiful - absolutely spotless and very nicely decorated. I love that the owner keeps the decoration tasteful and minimal - makes it easier to use the shelving, etc. to stash your own stuff! The kitchen had everything you could need and was modern. We rented kayaks and had them delivered to the property. My husband loved getting up in the early AM to go fishing - he caught a few bass right off our dock, too. I loved sitting with a magazine in the morning and watching the kayakers glide past.
Stockbridge Bowl is having a bit of a problem with water weeds and lilies, but it is being actively managed and will hopefully clear up more in the future. Cottage location is perfect for trips to the charming and historic towns of the Berkshires, hiking, a concert at Tanglewood or performance at Jacob's Pillow. Although there were tv's in the house, we never turned one on - truly a relaxing, rejuvenating trip!
This is so beautifully written and accurate. Thank you for capturing the true essence of the cottage and everything that is so lovely about it and the lakefront setting. I couldn't have written a more amazing review myself and enjoy reading this review over and over! Thrilled that you had a lovely stay with your family. Hope you will come back again. Thank you for taking the time to write such a well thought out review.
Best, Jennifer Whalen
Lovely place right on the lake
This is a charming cottage on the outlet to Stockbridge Bowl, very close to where the outlet opens up to the main lake. We enjoyed lots of kayaking. And, the house is close to Tanglewood and other sites.
