A newly renovated cabin located in a quiet summer community. New kitchen, bath, eat-in dining back porch, new paint and roof and floors redone. Stone fireplace centers the living area.
Large screened in front porch has both dining area, sitting areas and futon for sleeping. Two bedrooms downstairs with a queen sized bed and twin beds. Loft has 2 double beds and living room has a double futon as well.
Lots of trees and flowers. Walk to the town beach which has picnic tables and grills. Short drive to the towns of Stockbridge and Lenox, all cultural activities, nature and bike trails. Great sleeping as it is generally cooler at night no matter how hot during the day.
Fabulous restaurants in the area, plenty of theatre and great concerts at Tanglewood. Bring a picnic and hear fabulous music under the stars if you don't have tickets to the shed. Great shopping in Great Barrington and Lenox and outlet mall in Lee.
Check out up to date activities at the Berkshire Visitors Bureau web site.
Love gardening, kayaking, theater, concerts and photography when not working in marketing for travel and hospitality clients.

We finally moved here full time after spending time here summer after summer. It is a relaxing drive from NYC and Boston, very pastoral setting with lots of outdoor activities along with wonderful theater from Shakespeare & Co, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Barrington Stage, Williamstown Theater and Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony. Museums such as The Norman Rockwell, The Clark, Berkshire Museum and Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio. Lots to do and very relaxing.
Very well located between the towns of Stockbridge and Lenox and within walking distance to the Stockbridge town beach. A mile from the Lion's Gate at Tanglewood. Quiet summer community with lots of time spent on the front or back porch.
Location is good (Tanglewood right up the road, Stockbridge beach a short walk down a steep hill), and cabin was tidy. But be prepared for a rustic retreat! No washer/dryer, kitchen is very small and has the bare necessities, but the stove, oven and toaster were all in need of a good cleaning. The cabin was very musty when we arrived, maybe because of the rainy weather? Lots of cobwebs (especially in the loft), and not much ventilation, since most of the old wooden windows wouldn't open. Front porch is nice, back porch has no ventilation (or working outlets to accommodate a fan). Be warned: the electrical is very outdated, and there are only a few working outlets available throughout the cabin.
This is a wonderful cabin. It is cozy and clean, well taken care of, had excellent character, and a great location. The owner was very thoughtful throughout the stay. I can only hope we will return soon!
Very friendly owners, tidy clean cottage, very close to many attractions in Lenox, Stockbridge and other berkshire towns. We did Tanglewood, picked blue berries, swam in the nearby lake, rode horses and scenic historic trains.
A very enjoyable week.
my husband and i and another couple went for memorial day weekend and had a wonderful time in this cozy cabin! the location is really great and the cabin itself was super clean and comfortable. we loved the eating porch at night, and spent a lot of time enjoying the wooded surroundings from the spacious front porch in the mornings and afternoons. maureen couldn't have been nicer and more helpful too.
We had a great time at the cabin for a week before our wedding this August. Tanglewood and Lenox are so close. Zoe enjoyed walking down to the Bowl. The front porch was great for evening dinners and a big scrabble game. Had such a great week. Thanks again! -Alan & Zoe
