UNFORGETTABLE BERKSHIRE GETAWAY

Lenox Estate Rental Photos and Description

5-7 Bedrooms, 5-7 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 14

Gilded Age heir, Courtland Field Bishop, built this original Berkshire Cottage to escape the pressures of the city and enjoy the pastoral beauty and tranquility of the Berkshires. Lawns, meadows, and professionally landscaped gardens surround 'The Winter Palace,' a charming post and beam Colonial estate. Walk to Lenox town center with its excellent restaurants and shopping; or pack a picnic basket and take the back road to Tanglewood Music Festival, 2 miles away. A unique rental

Gathering Place: This setting is an ideal venue for guest accommodations, corporate retreats, family reunions or intimate gatherings. The Winter Palace is perfect for relaxing and gracious entertaining, with a beautiful English paneled dining room, a large brick patio adorned with flowers, and a fabulous screened-in porch with open deck areas on either side for lounging.

Remodeled South Wing: The newly remodeled South Wing features a cozy reading room warmed by a stone fireplace and buttery leather furniture, 2 elegant country bedrooms off a conservatory hallway with skylights, mahogany wood floors, and tiled bathrooms. Window seats provide comfortable reading nooks with bucolic views.

North Wing: The North Wing offers a spacious Great Room with a vaulted ceiling and hand-hewn beams. Leonard Bernstein once played piano in this room when the Boston Symphony Orchestra used to rent the house during their summer residence at Tanglewood. Antiques and comfortable country furnishings give the house the quality of a classic New England inn.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a week and it was fabulous. The house is so spacious and beautiful. It's really close to downtown Lenox but is also on a quiet back road. It's a great place to go with a large group and the home owners were very friendly. The price was reasonable too! I had to wait for my security deposit which is fine because it states in the agreement 60-90 days so they can get their cleaning done and make sure their is no damage. I highly recommend this place for rental in Lenox, MA.

great house, still trying to get deposit returned

  • 3 of 5
I agree with the previous reviewer: my family has rented many houses over the years, and have never had this kind of problem having our security deposit returned. The house is terrific, beautiful, with beautiful grounds. However the plumbing is quite old; there was one leak while we were there (but the owners did deal with it quickly), and parts of the house are musty. Because it is their home, the landlords "visit" often--not a problem for our family but also unusual, (no previous landlord just "popped in" almost daily. We left this property in great condition four months ago and have not yet received our deposit back. Given the rental cost and the type of property, I find it extremely aggravating to have to chase the landlord for the deposit.

October Visit

  • 2 of 5
My family and I rented this property in October 2008 for a family birthday. The house itself was fine. The bedrooms were large, the baths were great and the kitchen was good for a group to cook in. The butler's pantry had lots of storage for food and such. We had a nice visit .

The reason I say that my experience with this house was only fair is the fact that it is now April 2009 and I have just received my security deposit after almost six months of having to call and email to make this happen. We felt that we followed all of the checkout things that had to be done...but there were still some vague charges subtracted from the money.

We have rented houses from Key West to Maine. This has taught me never to rent a house without paperwork again. I want a signed contract with everything spelled out in black and white like we usually have. What a frustrating experience this has been!!!

Excellent for reunions of friends, family!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Winter Palace in October 2008. There were 10 adults and 3 kids. But with 7 bedrooms and 7 1/2 bathrooms, no one ever felt like they were on top of someone else! The owners have decorated this house in a warm and inviting way. You will enjoy the joy of life that exudes from their family photos, but still feel like you have your own space. Kitchen is extremely well stocked and versatile for group cooking. Butler's pantry is available as extra space to put out food. Dining room totally rocks! Bathrooms have very good water pressure. Kids and sports fans enjoyed the satellite TV. Grounds are lovely. Neighborhood is quiet and very peaceful. Close to many attractions...rain or shine, you will have a great time!
