Lee Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

ABOUT OUR PROPERTY:

Experience a little of old New England. Our VRBO is a charming historic family farmhouse apartment(2100 square feet) with lots of room and comfort surrounded by 22 acres. Built in 1782, our farm was famous for breeding Plymouth Barred Rock chickens. About one hundred years ago, one of these barred rock roosters won the grand prize of $2000.00 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, that’s a lot of cash for the 1800’s! Many other grand prizes were won as well, and thus our rental unit has a built in wall safe that was used back then to hold the winnings (we don’t have the combination to the safe, but we have left a stethoscope there if you would like to try to crack the code.).

Built by the Bradley family, the farm was one of the first and largest dwellings in the area. To this day, the street is named Bradley St.. The river runs through our little valley, which sometimes brings Bald Eagles, Ospreys and Great Blue Herons migrating through. There also is a train track that brings an old fashioned freight train through, and you can even book a ride on the Berkshire Scenic Railway, which runs in the summer and early fall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A year ago, we rented this house for one week. We stayed there with my family and friends, since we were celebrating my daughter´s graduation from college. The house is very cozy, confortable and spacious. We loved the wonderful garden with the barn. Everything is just a few miles away: Lenox, Stockbridge, Williamstown,Great Barrington. We had a great time!

A comfortable stay in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5
For the second year, my childhood friends and I have stayed for a weekend at the Golden Hill Farm house and we are already planning our return for next year!

This large house is perfect for our group of six with a well stocked kitchen, large dining table, and comfortable beds. Peaceful views out the window, birds, chickens, horses...

The house is a short distance from great dining in Lenox, outlets in Lee, and New England charm in Great Barrington.

Wendy and Tim are a pleasure to book with. Would recommend this house without reservation!

Charming Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5
This house had everything one would need for an extended stay. It felt like our own home, except the views were better. We loved getting up in the morning to see the horses and chickens. The house was immaculate and beautifully equipped and the owners friendly and accommodating. We hope to stay there again.

Summer Stay

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a lovely stay at the farm this summer. The house was spacious, had everything we needed and stayed cool in the summer heat.
The plantings outside are beautiful and it's a treat to go to the farm and see the horses and chickens.

The only thing that takes away from the bucolic setting is that the home sits close to the street so you can see/hear the cars go by.

If we visit the Berkshires again, I would return to Golden Hill farm. It was lovely and the hosts were very helpful.

Martin Luther Ski Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
As an avid skier group, we have rented numerous weekend houses in Massachusettes and Pennsylvania and this is one of the best rental houses that we have stayed at. A charming house with equally charming hosts, we found the house easy to find and loaded with all the amenities one would need to have a enjoyable stay. The kids really enjoyed seeing the horses and bird watching right outside the kitchen window. Close to Jiminy Peak Ski Resort and just a few minutes away from Lee Premium outlets made this location ideal.

We plan to be back very soon!

We try very hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The location of the farmhouse is a very accessible location to enjoy all this area has to offer. Skiing or shopping, as you discovered, there is something for everyone. We'd welcome you all back any time.
Thanks again.

Lovely rental!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience at this property - it was clean and comfortable, offered all the comforts of home. It's just a short drive to Butternut, which is where we skied. Great for kids - our 4 year-olds were happy and had plenty of space to play. Wendy and Tim were wonderful hosts!

Thanksgiving stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I booked this property for a Thanksgiving stay with our two sons who live in Boston along with our daughter-in-law and year old granddaughter. We live in upstate NY in a town next to Binghamton, NY. The location was just what we wanted, about half way between Binghamton and Boston, and the property was just right, too. Spacious, comfortable, and charming. The inside was spotless. The views outside in the back are wonderful with the horses and the prized unique chickens strolling about, and the owner who lives in the house attached to it was also friendly and helpful when we happened by each other, but otherwise it felt like we had the whole property to ourselves. It will go on our list for places for future gatherings. helpful, and quiet. It felt like we had the whole space to ourselves.

Owner's Response: Hi Folks,
Likewise it was a pleasure to have you stay with us. It's amazing in these old farmhouses that two families can live together and not hear each other because the walls are built so thick. It's also amazing that we don't even see each other because of the layout of the house, except for a rare bump into each other or if the renters need some help :) Thanks again,
We'd welcome you and your family back any time!
