1881 IMPECCABLY REMODELED CARRIAGE HOUSE. WALK TO TOWN.

Lenox House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

This unique and special home was originally the carriage house for the neighboring 1881 mansion. It has been totally remodeled and professionally decorated at the highest quality levels. The home is upscale, luxurious and sharply designed, lived in by the owners, that should not be confused with a typical 'rental' unit. You will be entering a world of class and comfort with an understated elegance and style.

The property is located on the hill top adjacent to the center of historic Lenox; it offers open, unobstructed views of the splendid Berkshire Mountains from its wide, furnished back porch. Perfect for sipping cocktails after a day of enjoying everything that the Berkshires have to offer. Adjacent to the home are two of the famed 'Berkshire Cottages' (actually exquisite mansions), miles of development restricted woods extending from the back porch and lawn – creating an oasis of green space in the center of the town of Lenox. The historic Ventfort Hall is across the street, and shops, restaurants, galleries, coffee shops and Shakespeare and Company are all within just a 2 minute walk.

The home has 4 bedrooms, each with its own private bath. 1 king, 2 queens and 1 full bed. Three of the bedrooms have flat screen TVs with satellite and cable and high speed wireless internet throughout. A large, bright, modern fully equipped kitchen with stone countertops, an island and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances. The dining area has a magnificent custom dining room table of Madagascar ebony that can extend to seat up to 12. An outdoor propane grill is included. AC and heat with 6 separate zones. Approximately 3000 sq ft. The lawn is manicured with beautiful professional landscaping and flowers.

Pets Allowed: The home has a doggie door that opens to a very large fenced in yard. The owner will allow 1 or 2 well behaved and house-trained small or medium sized dogs. No puppies. No cats.

This home has been a careful remodel and design project over 3 years. We created this as our personal summer family residence and seasonal vacation home. Our home contains our personally selected original artwork and creative finds, but you will not be peppered with walls of family photos. This should feel like your own elegant Lenox home during your stay, and we hope you will and enjoy and treat it with love.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

The Berkshires have so much to see and do, and Lenox is the heart, which is why so many of the 19th century industrialists built their summer 'cottages' here. With Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co, Jacob's Pillow, museums, shops, galleries, Canyon Ranch, countryside for hiking, biking, skiing, water-sports, it's an amazing place to enjoy life. In the fall, the area comes alive with all the brilliant foliage colors, arts, crafts, and harvest festivals. Take a scenic drive in the country or hike, bike or golf. Fine dining at area establishments featuring the seasons delights.

Nearly everything is within walking distance, or a very short drive.

CHARMING HOME WITH BEAUTIFUL SPACE

  • 5 of 5
This carriage house, fully remodeled, holds the charm of its 1881 character with all new beautiful bathrooms, gorgeous kitchen and decorating, as well as interesting art and artifacts thoroughout. Its location, a 5 minute walk across the street into town, makes it the ideal spot for experiencing a relaxed, slow-paced vacation. Add to this the spacious and beautifully landscaped yard and comfortable porch overlooking it, and a person really does not even have to leave the house to have a wonderful Lenox week. We were 6 adults and one child and fit the home perfectly.

AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home for a week in August. We concur with all the wonderful things people have said in reviews before us. Rather than repeat all that has already been said, here are some things that haven't been highlighted. In addition to the beautifully-landscaped lower garden, there is a huge open lawn great for games. The bathrooms are wonderful, and the water pressure is tremendous. There is tons of storage space so it's easy to unpack and settle in. Any kitchen appliance we needed was there. The house is incredibly well and thoughtfully stocked, with extras of everything on hand. Finally (and this bears repeating), Amy was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process, extremely responsive and available to answer any question about the house or help out with advice on local activities. We're thrilled that we found this home; it's an incredible place to stay!

THE PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME, FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with my family and toddler son and loved every minute. The only regret I have is that we didn't stay longer. The house is located on a beautiful nature lot with amazing views out the back deck/wrap around porch, however it is also a simple walk to Lenox village center. The house has been beautifully restored and decorated What I love the most is that there are so many interesting and cultural books and art pieces I felt like I was in mini-museum and library. And for families that like to cook, there are all the essentials plus more and great dining space. It was truly spetacular!

WONDERFUL FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with another family for a week at this wonderful carriage house. The open floor plan on the ground floor made it perfect for everyone to be together. The parents were able to cook and relax in the kitchen area (which is terrific for cooking with plenty of counter space) while the kids played together in the living room part of the same space. When meals were ready everyone fit around the large table in the dinning area. Guests who visited us commented on what a terrific feeling the home had, and everyone loved the artwork. The kids enjoyed playing in the back yard and the walk to restaurants and shops in Lenox is only a few minutes. The driveway had plenty of parking for several cars and the location was convenient for quick trips to Great Barrington and skiing. All of the rooms are very comfortable and the master is exceptional. We were very pleased with our stay and would be excited to come back again.

A WONDERFUL NEW YEARS EVE

  • 5 of 5
We escaped to the Lenox to spend a long New Years weekend. From the second we walked into this home we knew we were going to have a very special get-a-way. Set in a perfect location we could walk to the downtown area in less than 5 minutes which was wonderful as it was a snowy weekend and we didn't want to drive.

This is one of the most beautifully decorated places I have EVER visited, and we have been MANY 5 star places. It was welcoming and warm and I felt like my best friend had loaned me her home for the weekend. The owners have chose to trust renters with their family items (books, antiques, etc.).

We had planned on cooking a gourmet meal for New Years Eve and it was such a special treat to cook in this kitchen. 5-star gourmet everything!

I can not stress how wonderful this place is and I hope that we are able to come back in the future!

PEACEFUL GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at this lovely home. It is nicely appointed with a wonderful kitchen and spacious bathrooms. Has a fantastic view out the back, a gorgeous back yard and garden area and it is situated in a great location for Lenox - within an easy walk to town but yet it feels out of town and quiet when at the home. It would be perfect for a group of 6-8. Open concept first floor, large dining area. First floor master is good for those with mobility issues; however there is a step or two inside on the main floor of the house and to the outside other than via the front door. Upstairs master is superb with view, office and great bathroom! Cell service works (unlike in Stockbridge). Loved it and would happily return to this property for a quiet and peaceful week in beautiful western MA.
