Overview

Lanesboro Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Large two-story cottage 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 adults plus kids.

If you’ve driven by, you’ve wondered about the story of this beautiful stone building. Built in 1832 as a one-room schoolhouse – a function it served until 1950 -- this charming and historic building has been given new life as a guest house - since 1998.

Beautifully situated amidst horse farms on the scenic road to Mt Greylock. In the center of the Berkshires, 5 miles from Jiminy Peak ski area, 10 miles from South Williamstown, 15 miles from Tanglewood and Mass MoCA, and 20 miles from Jacob's Pillow. 5 miles to Pittsfield and the Berkshire Mall. Private garden. 5 acres of property in the back where horses and cows graze.

Everything is provided...: fully-furnished mostly with antiques. Bedspreads, linens, blankets, pillows, towels, iron and ironing board. Kitchen with mini stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, coffee - ground and beans, assorted teas and hot chocolate, pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, etc.

There are 2 floors. The first floor is the old classroom with old desks. There is also a trundle bed which can be used as 2 twins or

1 king size bed. The bathroom is on the first floor.

The 2nd floor is like a studio apartment - there is a queen bed and a twin bed, plus floor space and mattresses for kids. Also, a small but complete kitchen.

The Old Stone School is available to rent 12 months a year. Each season has it's benefits:

WINTER - Jiminy Peak is less than 10 mins. away.Ski or snow tube at Bousquet is 20 mins. away. Cross country Ski in the fields out back or go to Hilltop Orchards in Richmond or Notchview in Windsor.

SPRING - Trees arise from winter sporing their fleeting Spring green color, daffodils, tulips, hiking trails are open, enjoy the warm weather after a long winter! Calves appear on the hill behind the schoolhouse.

SUMMER - Flowers blooming, berries to pick, outdoor activities nearby, culture everywhere - Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Barrington Stage, Clark Art Museum, MassMoCA, Williams College Museum of Art, etc.

FALL - Enjoy the kaleidoscope of Fall colors covering the hills behind the schoolhouse. Hike Mt. Greylock - short and long hikes. Go the top and check out Bascom Lodge - a stop on the Appalachian Trail.

Escape Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to escape for the weekend! The cottage has so much history and character, exactly what we were looking for. Our 10 year old granddaughter and her friend just loved the classroom downstairs. Cheryl and Rich were very accommodating and helpful in letting us know the surroundings and the happenings in the area. Just a beautiful location surrounded by rolling fields, grazing horses and cows! The kids had a blast and we were able to enjoy the peace and quiet. We're definitely coming back!

Historic Gem in a Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the "Old Stone School Cottage". The cottage is nestled within scenic meadows and surrounding horse farms making it very private and quiet. Within just a short drive we were easily able to visit Williams and North Adams to the north and Lenox and Stockbridge to the south. The cutest little general store down the lane had all the extras we needed. The best part is you feel like you're right in the Mount Greylock State Reserve Park. We enjoyed hiking the trails and the incredible views.

The owners are super nice people too. They have taken great care to offer a wonderfully historic moment in time with the vintage classroom; the owner, Cheryl, is a talented photographer and shares her images throughout the cottage; and the living space was very nice and comfortable. This was exactly the relaxing romantic getaway we were looking for. We will definitely want to stay here on our future Berkshire trips.

Like something out of a dream.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and peaceful, but above all a unique space that has been left to speak for itself. I loved spending time in the schoolroom around blackboards and desks. The location is also ideal--surrounded by fields of grazing cows, and just a short walk up the road to trails in a national forest. Also a great farm stand near by. It was dreamy in the winter, and I hope very much to see it again in the warmer months.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! The warmer months are welcoming in a different way. Instead of fields of white snow, the rich soil allows the cows to graze in lush green grass. Lilac trees, butterfly bushes, Russian sage and dahlias bloom in the garden. Hope to see you again in Spring or Summer!

A Gem in the Berkshires!

  • 5 of 5

The old Stone School Cottage was a great place to work and stay for me on my recent trip to the Berkshires. Our hosts were very accommodating, and I loved the feel and atmosphere of this historic rental property. Even though the temperatures dropped and the wind was blowing the cottage was warm and toasty. The location was convenient and the views spectacular. Thank you very much!
