New Marlborough Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Private 2 Bedroom + Spare Room
Just renovated, this charming barn cottage is situated across from a small apple orchard on a quiet country lane in New Marlborough. Surrounded by several hundred acres of Wildlife Sanctuary and New Marlborough Land Trust, you can walk out your door onto hiking trails around Thousand Acre Lake and beyond.
The cottage (our former studio - we are both artists) has a living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, and bath. One bedroom has a queen bed, one bedroom has a single bed and a separate computer room/office (with free Wi-Fi) doubles as a third bedroom (I have a folding single bed). The total living space is 900 square feet, not counting the large deck off living room, which overlooks fields and woods and sunset. The cottage is near (six miles) the Yale Music School’s Norfolk Music Festival (great concerts with guest artists) and is a short (scenic!) drive on quiet country roads to Tanglewood, Jacob’s Pillow Dance (free outdoor afternoon performances by some of the best dance companies), Great Barrington (Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center) and Stockbridge, home of the Berkshire Theatre Festival, as well as the other main Berkshire attractions.
Less than two miles away is York Lake, which has a supervised, sandy beach (great for family swimming) with restrooms and picnic areas with grills and tables. Both York Lake and Thousand Acre Lake (a half mile down our road are excellent for wildlife viewing and kayaking, with the two kayaks we have, no charge. Also close by are two scenic waterfalls, Campbell Falls (see photo) and Umpachene Falls, both perfect for a refreshing dip on a hot day.
Also less than two miles away are the New Marlborough Old Inn on the Green Restaurant and the Southfield Store Cafe, two of the best restaurants in the Berkshires.
Our own house is across the road and down a bit from the cottage, and has raspberry and blueberry plantings, which you are welcome to pick when in season.
Available for monthly, weekly, or three day stays, Memorial Day through October, from $895. per week.
