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, 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. Just into the woods a short distance is a campfire area with natural seating.

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.

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

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.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
Although the photos and description were accurate, they don't compare to the actual property. It's obvious the owners have a great deal of pride in this house. Our one week stay couldn't have been better (other than the bit of rain which we don't hold Hillary responsible for). The quality of the linens, kitchen utensils and everything else were well above what we might have expected in a rental. The entire house was clean and very comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious and the bunkroom was a HIT! We BBQd on the excellent grill and the landscaping was lovely. Walking to the lake was enjoyable and the proximity to towns, restaurants and other points of interest was fine. This property is NOT a house - it's a HOME! The icing on the cake was a pleasant and responsive owner. Hillary was wonderful to deal with and my family all look forward to our next visit.

WINTER OASIS

  • 5 of 5
My wife, three kids and I rented this house for most of the winter ski season with three other families. This house is truly special. It has real charm. The owner thoughtfully designed and appointed the house with every modern convenience. A spacious great room, with a georgous stone fireplace anchors the house. We spent a lot of time there in front of a roaring fire while we listening to Pandora. The home has wireless cable service so we were able to stream Pandora from our Iphones and use the provided audio cable to connect our phones to the home's mutli-zone, in-wall audio system. The large bonus room and the kid's bunkroom was also a big hit. The kids loved being able to transition from family time in the great room to kid's hangout time in the bonus room and finish the night off with a sleep over in the six bed bunkroom. The house is really versatile.

We found this the perfect house for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying the surrounding area.

PHENOMENAL HOME AND GROUNDS

  • 5 of 5
I rented this phenomenal home for (my birthday) and a family reunion of 4 sisters plus spouses and children, of which 15 out of our 18 were able to attend. I completely concur with the previous reviews. The owners have done a remarkable job of creating a home that is conducive to both gathering AND to separating as desired. We ranged in age from 12 to 65, as well as in preferences for rest , relaxation, sleep, to the get-up and go, see, do, try everything the Berkshires has to offer. Some of us were early risers, some of us late night talkers/card players. All of us cooked, cleaned and ate a lot together at the wonderful dining table for dinner, but often in smaller groups for other meals at the various seating options throughout the property! This house and grounds accommodated all of us with luxury, ease, peaceful quiet, beauty and great comfort. Whatever we needed could be found, from lightbulbs to blankets for Tanglewood, to airbeds for the screen porch. We had one or two minor issues that were answered and resolved in a prompt, courteous and friendly fashion by the caretaker. Making arrangements and terms with Hillary felt like I was communicating with an old friend…very low key, personable and approachable. My sisters and their families were amazed by this house, and all had a most remarkable vacation. It is a one of a kind spot that my family will remember and recall with great appreciation and affection.
