SPACIOUS HISTORIC HOME MINUTES TO TANGLEWOOD, PET-FRIENDLY, SLEEPS 8

Stockbridge House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Minutes To Cultural And Natural Attractions

Our construction will be completed in July, and we'll be ready to rent in October!

Enjoy all the Berkshires has to offer in our new (2014) restoration and outstanding renovation of the historic South Lee Schoolhouse. Perched on a hillside just across the road from the Housatonic River and Beartown State Forest in the hamlet of South Lee, just outside of Stockbridge, the 1892 schoolhouse has been converted into two spacious and comfortable post and beam homes with all modern amenities. Your host resides on site and is available to assist you during your visit in any way you may need (including granting you your privacy!)

We are just a few miles from the Exit 2 interchange on the Mass Pike, making it easy to find us, as well as to use us as your home base to explore the area.

With 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, the Schoolhouse can comfortably accommodate 8 guests. (We can provide air mattresses for an additional 1 or 2.) The fully equipped gourmet kitchen is open to two lovely seating areas, one with a fireplace and the other with a flat screen TV, and the dining area. The private patio, surrounded by lovely perennial gardens, is equipped with a gas grill and large table for al fresco dining. Families with kids and dogs will enjoy a large grassy area abutting the woodlands at the rear of the 2-acre lot.

If it is cultural activities you enjoy, we are ideally located:

o 2 miles from Berkshire Theatre in Stockbridge

o 6 miles from Shakespeare and Company

o 6 miles from Berkshire Theatre in West Stockbridge

o 7 miles from Tanglewood (and we know a secret back way!)

o 9 miles from the Mahaiwe Theater in Great Barrington

o 11 miles from Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival

o 14 miles from the Colonial Theater, Barrington Stage Company, or the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield

o MASS MoCA, The Clark Museum and Williamstown Theater Festival are further away, but still worth visiting.

If shopping is your thing, we are 3 miles from the Lee Outlets, and 3 miles from a very good supermarket. Great Barrington has good shopping just 9 miles from us. In the summer we can steer you toward the myriad Farmers Markets in the area.

Nearby hiking (we have maps and guide books you can borrow):

o Beartown State Forest

o Ice Glen and Laura’s Tower

o October Mountain State Forest

o Monument Mountain

o Sages Ravine

o Bartholemew’s Cobble

o Tyringham Cobble

o Savoy Mountain State Forest

o Bash Bish Falls

Paddling on the Housatonic: there is a put-in just down the road at the Housatonic River Association headquarters on Pleasant Street in South Lee.

Goose Pond

Golf and tennis are 2.5 miles away at the Greenock Country Club in Lee (Donald Ross designed the 9-hole course).

Swimming:

• Benedict Pond in Beartown State Forest

• Lee Town Beach on Laurel Lake

• Public beaches on Lake Garfield, Otis Reservoir, Onata Lake, Pontoosuc Lake

If you get tired of cooking, Perigee is a very nice restaurant that is a two minute walk from the house, and there are many good restaurants and cafes in Lee, Lenox and Great Barrington, all within 15 minutes driving.

Pets:

Our super friendly yellow lab plays well with kids and other dogs. You are welcome to bring your house-trained, well-behaved pooch. We ask that you not leave your dog home alone for the whole day, however. We can recommend a great doggy day care about 5 minutes away. (Our dog boards there when we go away.)

Weekly rentals only: also available is one bedroom with en-suite bath on a nightly basis.

I chose to relocate to the Berkshires because I am a 'nature-culture-vulture!' I grew up in Ohio but 'came East' for college and have lived all over the Boston area and in New Hampshire for the last 30+ years.

I enjoy meeting new people and sharing what this lovely area has to offer. My friendly yellow lab and I are on site and available to provide any assistance you may need.

My favorite activities are hiking, gardening, quilting, playing chamber music and listening to classical music.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2013

The historic South Lee Schoolhouse was built in 1892 and was used as a school until the 1970s. My next-door neighbor attended school here!

The building languished until it was rescued by a local builder who specializes in fine post and beam construction. He gutted it, added the dormers, and completely re-constructed the internal posts and beams using reclaimed wood. I came along at this stage and purchased the property from him. During the summer of 2013 he built the gorgeous post and beam barn and over the winter of 2013-14 he completed the interior renovation for me.
