About Elaine Hoffman

I am a potter who loves to get my hands in clay.

Hands in dirt is not a bad thing either, as I love to garden ,as well.

I have a large vegetable garden and perennial gardens all around the property. If you are here in season, you may be able to partake of my garden vegetables and/or flowers to decorate the farmhouse.

I also love to hike the trails right out the door- Up the mountains, and down to the river.

These are a few of my favorite things!

I hope that you can come and enjoy them too.

Elaine Hoffman purchased this farmhouse in 1965

Why Elaine Hoffman chose West Stockbridge

This Farmhouse has been in the family for nearly 50 years. We have developed the land and buildings and have enjoyed its solemnity and tranquility.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The farmhouse is just 2 miles from downtown West Stockbridge where shopping necessities, galleries, restaurants, playgrounds, tennis, and swimming are all available.

It is within 10 minutes from Tanglewood, theatres, movies, museums and other cultural activities, as well as ski resorts.

And yet a lovely place to just sit and contemplate on the screened in porch overlooking the fields, gardens, stream and wooded mountains.

New Year's Fun

New Year's Fun
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the farmhouse over New Year's and enjoyed all its amenities. We had 4 adults and 5 kids and plenty of room for all. We hiked, went skiiing and were able to bring our two small dogs who loved the property as well. Elaine was a great host and the farmhouse is well stocked with linens and dishes. We had all the comforts of home for our very relaxing (but short) stay.

Our Norman Rockwell Christmas

  • 5 of 5
I rented the farm house for my family's "Norman Rockwell Christmas" and it was honestly the best choice of locations I could have made. It fit and exceeded all of our needs - having a bedroom on the first floor and handrails on the shower for my elderly parents; the smart TV and high speed internet for my techie 17 year old nephew, and, for all of us, the feeling you get from being at home even though you are in a rental.

What also made our stay so special was Elaine herself. All through our e-mail communication prior to our stay until we left, she was incredibly helpful, kind, and engaging. You can tell she takes pride in her home and she truly thinks of the comfort and enjoyment of her renters.

Cozy Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely (but too short!) stay at this farmhouse. We loved West Stockbridge, with its cute little shops and amazing coffee. The house was the perfect size for the 5 of us, and could have fit several more. It has lots of seating in the living room and a nice big dining room table. The place feels lived-in, not like some rental places that have the bare minimum. There are lovely pillows, rugs, and blankets that seem to have been collected over the years, maybe from travels abroad, lending the space a personal feel. The kitchen has plenty of silverware and almost anything else you could need for a vacation stay. Elaine also recommended a beautiful walk for us to go on in the neighborhood. We had a wonderful time.

Fabulous retreat

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Elaine's farmhouse in the Berkshires. Elaine is a kind, helpful, and generous host, and all correspondences with her were clear and helpful. The home itself is cozy and well-stocked. We had everything we needed, and we felt so comfortable and relaxed there. The property itself is beautiful and calming- such a refuge! Even in off season, Elaine directed us to many wonderful things to do. Art Museums, galleries , not to mention Elaine's own Pottery showroom right next door, fantastic theatre, and a lovely walk along the river- right out the door, with lots of beaver activity!!! And there was still lettuce growing in the garden , which we were invited to pick! I would recommend this home to anyone traveling through the Berkshires-
even if you are a larger group. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Return again, yes!

  • 5 of 5
After many years of wanting to travel east, I finally made it to the
Berkshires. What a treat! I was delighted by my stay at an old farm
house so lovingly cared for by Elaine, the owner.

It offered a quiet, clean, comfy and beautiful spot to relax and recreate.
It gave me a sense of history, yet I could use the wifi to stay connected
- best of both worlds.

Elaine's hospitality and knowledge of the area's art/craft scene was
especially appreciated and she has an amazing pottery studio just across
the field.

If you are looking for a beautiful spot to stay in the Berkshires I
heartily recommend Elaine's farmhouse. You won't be disappointed. You
will be a returning customer.

Great for a Girl's Weekend Away!

Great for a Girl's Weekend Away!
  • 5 of 5
My friends from elementary/high school traveled from New Jersey and I from the Cape to meet up for a Girl's Weekend Away. We had a wonderful time at Elaine's vacation rental. The house feels like a home away from home with 5 nice clean, cozy, bedrooms and 2 baths - plenty of room for us girls. The farm table in the dining room hosted a late evening drinking wine, eating dinner, and sharing lots of stories and laughs by candle light. The next night we all got cozy in the living room and watched classic movies. Elaine is a great hostess and before we left, we stopped and all bought at least one of her pottery pieces which are classic too! Highly recommended!
