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.

Great Location, Very Comfortable, Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's 2nd year spending 10 days at The Farmhouse. We had between 2 and 10 people sleeping and eating together. The kitchen is well equipped and the large dining table is perfect for big family meals. This is an old farmhouse so the floors creak and the furniture is very casual. Beds are very comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms are upgraded and the owner keeps the place very clean. If we return to the area we will bedefinitely be back.

Rustic Farm House

  • 5 of 5
We were a group nine. We found the house to have a rustic charm complete with hardwood floors and exposed beams in the walls and ceilings. We tended to congregate in the living room and on the screened-in porch. The Kitchen was well supplied and easy to work in. The lovely dining room seats 12. Our bed was comfortable and cozy. The yard was large enough for us to play crochet and bocci. Even though the farm house is in a country setting, it is only a short drive away from the charming towns of Stockbridge, Great Barrington, and Lee. Lastly, the owner was friendly and helpful. She went out of her way to buy us a crochet set, provide us with candles, show us how to work various things, etc. She made our stay a real pleasure that we look forward to repeating next year!

This was a perfect place for our family!

  • 5 of 5
We thought the old farmhouse, barn and lovely gardens provided a beautiful setting for our family vacation. With five bedrooms and two full bathrooms it served our group of three family units very well. It also provided something we very rarely find for our times together -- a dining table that actually seats 11-12 people, and also a living room area where everyone can sit down comfortably and visit and catch up. The kitchen was very well stocked, the air was always just right, and the screened-in porch was a great place to sit in the late afternoons. The owner was nearby for any help we might need but completely unobtrusive. I would highly recommend this farmhouse.

Christmas in January!

  • 5 of 5
Elaine's farmhouse worked out perfectly for our January celebration/family gathering. Plenty of room for a sit down dinner at the large dining room table, as well as seating in the Living Room to watch the football games! Hiking trails and skiing nearby provided something for everyone! Elaine was very helpful and we look forward to returning.

Cozy and homey

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a fantastic weekend at Elaine's farmhouse. The property is gorgeous and private. The house is full of character with the antique doors and antique furntiure. Sitting on the porch in the morning drinking my coffee was my favorite. My nephews spent most of their time outside playing in the yard and woods. I can't wait to come back next year!!

Lovely Farmhouse and Owner

  • 5 of 5
We rented the farmhouse July 3-8. The weather was desperately hot, in the 90's, and extremely humid the entire time. Despite that, the house stayed reasonably cool with the window shades and many electric fans. The farmhouse is well decorated, not cluttered, extremely clean and spacious for the 6-8 of us. Elaine's pottery studio, gallery and house are out back but secluded from the farmhouse. It's fun to check out the pottery--I enjoyed it so much that I bought some. The grounds are beautiful and rustic with a big vegetable garden from which we were urged, by Elaine, to pick the produce. There is a stream and walking paths out back. The location is excellent- only 1.5 miles off the Mass Pike yet close to Tanglewood, West Stockbridge and Stockbridge, Norman Rockwell Museum, Jacob's Pillow and much more. We enjoyed excellent dinners at Rouge in West Stockbridge and at the Dream Away Lodge near Jacob's Pillow. Despite the too hot weather, we had an excellent and fun time at the farmhouse.
