Overview

Lenox House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

A Tanglewood-lover's haven, this is a tiny but elegant and comfortable historic cottage set in the heart of Lenox. The professionally decorated house is within walking distance of Tanglewood and Shakespeare & Co., and of course all the galleries, shops, and restaurants for which Lenox is famous. Numerous hiking trails are close by (beautiful Kennedy Park is a short walk away), as are Laurel Lake and Stockbridge Bowl - both with public access for boaters, and sandy beaches for swimmers and sunbathers alike. Winter sports - downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, skating, snowshoeing etc. - are within easy reach. All the attractions of the Berkshires, both North and South County, are just a short drive away.

The kitchen has maple cabinets, granite countertops and a beautiful cork floor. The bathroom (shower, no tub) is carefully designed for comfort and functionality, with ceramic tile flooring and new fixtures throughout. There is a small fenced and landscaped back yard to contain little people and well-behaved four-legged family members.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cute cottage is literally in downtown Lenox and close to restaurants, shopping and bookstore - also walking distance to Kennedy park and short walk to the mount. House was clean and in great condition I would deftinitley stay again. Penny was a breeze to work with!!

Well-Appointed, Well-Located, Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, dog, and I had a wonderful stay in this cottage. Having stayed at a number of vacation rentals, I was especially impressed at how well-appointed it was in terms of kitchen utensils, bedding, and towels. On a couple of nights, the weather was chilly, but the heating system kept us nice and toasty. As many other people have noted, the location could not be better. From that location, we hardly used our car at all, as we were able to walk to parks, restaurants, bookstores, and the local grocery store. Fabulous! I will also note that the cottage seemed much bigger than the listed square footage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a great review. I'm especially glad that the diminutive size of the house wasn't a drawback … it always seems to feel much bigger in spirit! And there's so much to do in and around Lenox, most guests seem to use it as a cozy home base from which to venture out.

Charming Cottage in the heart of Lenox

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I had a wonderful time staying at your cottage. It was so clean, tastefully decorated and convenient to shopping and restaurants. We stayed at the cottage and got day passes for Kripalu Yoga Center which is just a few miles from the cottage. It was such a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend, we can't wait to visit again. Thank you!

Love Lenox!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had five nights at this little cottage and absolutely loved the location - smack dead in the middle of town, only a minute at most to the best restaurants in Lenox, and two doors down from an OUTSTANDING bakery. Couldn't ask for anything better!!

A delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and had a delightful time. As others have noted, the cottage is very well decorated, very charming, and has an unbeatable middle of town location. Penny, the owner, is very responsive and very good to work with. We noted the somewhat negative review which stated that there were some rough spots that needed updating, and we discussed these with Penny before deciding to rent. Yes, there are a few cosmetic improvements that Penny is intending on making now, in the off season, and I have to say these few cosmetic issues in no way impacted our time, we had a wonderful time staying in the cottage.

Owner's Response: I was grateful for the opportunity to explain the minor water damage to the house before the rental, and really appreciated our guests being open and understanding … and of course am very happy that the stay was enjoyable in spite of it.

Great Lenox Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay for 4 nights was wonderful. The cottage is in the heart of Lenox, which we loved. We could walk to so many great restaurants and unique shops. We hope to return next year!
