LUXURY HOME WITH BEST LOCATION IN THE BERKSHIRES

Stockbridge House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

THE PERFECT house for a large family, or several families to share!! Designed by NYC architect, and built for several generations of his own family, this house is designed for both fun and relaxation. The concept was to build a luxury cabin in the woods, and the end product is a series of modern cabin-like structures that are loosely connected by glass and stone passageways that evoke the feeling of passing through the outside, without ever leaving the comforts of home.

Less than two miles from Tanglewood, this house has a fantastic location for whatever your interests are in the Berkshires, whether they be outdoors or in.

If you rent this home in summer,you will have rights to the private and lovely Beachwood Beach, and you will have free, unlimited use of the owners canoe, kayak, and the neccessary accessories like life jackets, oars etc.... in addition to the endless choice of activities all over the area. If you are renting the house in winter, and can drag yourself away from the fireplace, you will be close to Butternut, Bousquet, and Jiminy Peak alpine ski areas, as well as endless X-Country trails. Fall is perfect for leaf-peeping, hiking and exploring the amazing small towns dotting the entire county.

Hang out and enjoy the peace and quiet, or fill your day to the brim with all that is available in the four unique seasons of the Berkshires.

The first, main building houses the Great Room, Dining, Kitchen, Breakfast Nook, Mudroom, and Laundry Room. Anchored by a masonry stone fireplace this space is the heart of the home. The modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances is fully equipped for whatever cooking you have in mind. Off of the kitchen is a small deck with table and chairs, as well as a gas grill. Outside the Great Room double doors is a courtyard created by the placement of the cabins. It includes another small seating area and a beautifully landscaped surround. From every room in the house, you will see the lawn and gardens which meld into the woods beyond.

Another cabin houses the Master bedroom, with king sized bed, and his/hers separate bathrooms. 'Hers' has a jacuzzi tub, 'his' a stall shower. This is a private and romantic room with views towards the woods.

The third cabin houses two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed, and two full bathrooms, one with a tub and the other with a shower. At the end of this cabin, there is the much loved bunkroom that holds six people, each in a twin sized bed with it's own window and wall sconce for private reading! This is a crowd pleaser of a room for the little ones! Above these three spaces, on the second floor is the media room, which has an L-shaped sofa, flat screen TV, ping pong table, and games area.

Below these bedrooms is the lower level that contains two more bedrooms, with a shared bathroom. One bedroom has a king bed, the other has twins, that could also be made up as a king. The shared bath has a shower and two sinks.

The last cabin houses the garage, and above the garage is a screened porch which can only be described as 'tree-house' like. There is comfortable seating, for reading, napping and also a dining table up on high. It's a very separate area from the rest of the house, and perfect for those looking for a quiet getaway.

The property is 20 acres, and is mostly wooded.

Why The Owner chose Stockbridge

Our family has been spending time in the Berkshires for many years, and in 2000, when this amazing property in the heart of Stockbridge came on the market, we just could not resist the temptation to build our own retreat. We live our 'real' life outside of Manhattan, and access from our area is just as easy as it is from the Boston area, and all of CT. There is something in the Berkshires for everyone, whether you like culture, the outdoors, summer, winter, fall or just sitting by a fire reading and playing games with your family.

What makes this house unique

We have it all! Biking, hiking, walking, nature preserves, skiing, theatre, music, shopping, antiquing, outlets, craft shows, galleries, spas, you name it!

Beautiful, Well-situated Family Gathering Place, with everything you could possibly desire!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was perfect about this home: our family (ages 8 months to 94 yrs.) enjoyed all the activity spaces indoors and out, the well-stocked kitchen, the wonderful yard and sitting areas, and the convenience to the Stockbridge Lake (including the use of a canoe and kayak). Owner Hillary was extraordinarily helpful and patient in quickly responding to all our little planning questions. We would all highly recommend this home to anyone who would like to spend a relaxing week in a spacious, super-homey setting. While there, we enjoyed biking on the Ashuwillticook rail trail in Lanesborough, dining at the Bascom Lodge on Mt. Greylock, seeing a play at Shakespeare & Co., visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum and Naumkeag Mansion and Edith Wharton's summer home at The Mount, and eating out at Chez Nous and Sullivan Station in Lee, along with the Red Iron Inn in Stockbridge. And we only scratched the surface of things to do in this area. Would love to return!

Spacious and flexible for four generations

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I brought for one week: 1 great grandmother with walker; 3 adult children and one spouse; 5 grandchildren (9 yr to 2 yr). The house was spacious and worked well for everyone. 4 oldest grandchildren enjoyed the bunks. We visited the nearby lake for a little while each day, using the canoe and kayak, sandy beach, and picnic facilities. The kids spent a lot of time on the lovely grounds outside of the house and also made much use of the interior for games, crafts, and hanging out. Car is needed, even to visit the lake. Easy access to Stockbridge, Lenox. We were impressed by the professionalism of the owner in all aspects.

Peace and Comfort in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5
Our family, ages 3 years to 83 years, gathered at this very comfortable 'home'. It is set in a quiet, secluded wooded area. The gorgeous lawn and flowers are beautifully maintained, as is this well designed house.
Hillary has decorated her home with interesting collections and personal items, giving this home warmth. It is adequately stocked with kitchen supplies and linens, even extra air beds. She added personal touches such as picnic baskets for Tanglewood.
There are 2 outdoor tables to congregate for meals, etc as well as the kitchen area and a huge dining table. The game room is supplied with games, ping-pong table, TV and DVD, which was a big hit. Another surprise was a screen porch, totally set apart from the main area of the house, which allowed for a get-away to read, nap or conversation.
Hillary was a gem to work with and easy to contact.

Pitch perfect!

  • 5 of 5
My team just returned from an incredible staff retreat at this lovely home nestled in the Berkshires. This was my second time staying at this well-appointed private get-away. The first time I took my family for a vacation which was ideal and unforgettable and I knew then that it would be the site of our next off-site.

You couldn't find a better home inside and out. No detail has been spared from the lovely garden road winding down to this beautiful property, to the many outdoor places to eat and play, to the open expansive interior with its craftsman-like detail and modern sensibilities. Great bathrooms and a well stocked kitchen a real plus!!

Pitch perfect for any occasion! It feels like a home and not a rental; well suited for a business trip too! It added that sense of tranquility and relaxation that you want on a retreat, but when it came time to get down to business we enjoyed doubling the dinning room as our conference area and having breakout sessions in any number of the bonus rooms. Great place for seniors because there are few to no stairs and awesome for kids because the property is large and safe with lots of activities. Great proximity to Tanglewood, town or the lake. ENJOY..I know we did!

Spectacular Rental!

  • 5 of 5
My family recently stayed in this home with several other families. We have rented numerous properties through VRBO over the past 5 years, and this home not only exceeded our expectations, but far surpassed any property we ever have rented. The house was impeccably designed and decorated, both elegant and comfortable, and situated on a beautiful piece of property. The spacious design of the home afforded each family complete privacy and, at the same time, offered ample, welcoming, beautifully designed communal space. The kitchen was stocked like a private home, not a rental property, as was the rest of the home. The outdoor dining area and new grill was an added plus, as was the ability to walk to a lovely beach area in less than ten minutes. In short, we would unequivocally recommend this gorgeous home. And doing business with the owner was a true pleasure.
