FAMILY-FRIENDLY COTTAGE OFF LAKE IN STOCKBRIDGE

Stockbridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath Minutes from Tanglewood

Located a short walk to the town beach on the Stockbridge Bowl, and 1.5 miles from Tanglewood's Hawthorn entrance, this casual summer cottage is a great get away for the whole family.

The master bedroom is equipped with a queen bed; two twins are in the 2nd bedroom, and a full-size bed in the 3rd bedroom. A sofa in the den becomes a real twin bed and a Pack 'n Play is on site if you need a portable crib.

A new kitchen will suit the chef of the family, or barbecue on the propane grill. Enjoy the screened-in porch and dine al fresco. Foodies will enjoy the many seasonal and farm-to-table offerings in nearby Lenox and Great Barrington.

Cultural offerings abound nearby. Truly, there are too many to list. Museums, botanical gardens, theater, Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Co., Berkshire Theater Festival, Jacob's Pillow ...

Or enjoy the lake! You will find 2 stand up paddle boards and a kayak at the house that you are free to use. You'll also find some extras in the house - things we like, such as a little red wagon and some beach toys - feel free to use them.

For yogis, Kripalu is just at the North end of the lake. You also can book a holistic facial or spa treatment there or opt for the spa at Canyon Ranch or Cranwell with it's indoor and outdoor pools. Whatever you're looking for, you're sure to find it in the Berkshires!

We purchased the cottage this winter and have been working hard updating it. It is new to market and priced to rent. We hope you enjoy it!

About Sarah Landis

We're a family of 5 who love to play on the water, ride bikes and appreciate the arts. Our family is from the Berkshires and we love the area for skiing in the winter, yoga, and Tanglewood and the theater in the summer.

Sarah Landis purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Sarah Landis chose Stockbridge

We got married at a nearby farm and have been visiting the area ever since. The Berkshires are a fabulous destination all year round. And summers are as eventful as you want. You can attend a concert, theater or dance performance nightly, enjoy a farm-to table meal, or just relax at the cottage. As for our kids, they love the lake and riding their bikes best!

What makes this cottage unique

With 3 bedrooms, plus a den with a sofa that converts to a true twin bed, this house is just the right size for a family, but small enough that everyone comes together for family time. The open plan living/dining room/kitchen invites people to spend time together. And the lake is just a short walk away!

With We Had More Time

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 has been coming to the Berks for the last 15 years or so, and we've tried staying a bunch of places - locally owned and/or chain hotels, B&Bs, etc. - and this time we went the VRBO route, and our first time was a hit out of the park.

Sarah and Clark have made a very nice home for those who visit, and it was very comfortable and clean and well appointed. It's open floor plan in the living space was great. There are speakers in the kitchen where we plugged in our iDevices and filled the space with music.

The kids loved the yard in the back, throwing a frisbee around; our oldest enjoyed reading in the sun room. We liked cooking breakfast each of the mornings we were there and sitting together around the large kitchen table.

There was an old Atari system in a drawer for some late night retrogaming, and the Roku got some use as well.

A new gas grill was delivered during our stay, but we didn't get a chance to use it... maybe next time. :-)

Sarah's communication before and during our stay was timely and helpful.

I would recommend this property without reservation, and my wife is sad that it's booked for the rest of the summer (a fact which that did not surprise me; it's a great property in a great location).

Fall Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
The moment you step inside this crisp, clean and well appointed home you are instantly transformed into a state of pure relaxation. The location is ideal and the home looks straight out of a magazine. We had a wonderful ladies weekend at the lake, getting paddle boarding and kayaking in with the agreeable weather. Local wineries, apple picking, and terrific farm to table restaurants completed the fall perfection weekend. The owner is prompt, courteous and very hospitable making this a 5 star experience. I cannot wait to return again soon!

Great place to vacation with kids!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week here in late July. The house was very comfy, and we really appreciated the owners' thoughtfulness in letting us use their Netflix account as well as the iPod speakers they installed in the kitchen. We made excellent use of the grill, screened-in porch and backyard, but perhaps the best part of the house was its location. It's a 5-minute walk to the Stockbridge town beach, which has sand (and beach toys) for little kids as well as a lifeguard and floating swimming docks. Our kids (ages 5 and 2) also loved the small playground right by the beach. (We often walked from the house to the beach, but there's no sidewalk so parents with very small children might prefer to drive there.)

In addition to swimming in the lake and cruising around on the owners' stand-up paddleboards, we also found lots of activities nearby to help keep our kids happily occupied. The Norman Rockwell museum is fun for kids and so are the botanic garden and Naumkeag. Those places, plus several cute little towns, are only a short drive away.

The house is also so close to Tanglewood that we could listen to the Steve Miller concert from our porch. (We're not big Steve Miller fans, though, and the concert was far enough away that all we had to do was go inside and we couldn't hear it anymore.)

One last detail I'll mention for people like me who need to spend some of their vacation doing work stuff: the wifi at the house was great, but if you're planning to use your laptop a lot, you might want to bring an extension cord since there aren't many conveniently located outlets.

But the lack of outlets is a very minor complaint, particularly since the goal of our vacation was to try to get away from our electronic gadgets as much as possible. All in all, we had a terrific week at this house and would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative--we feel like we hit the VRBO jackpot!

Owner's Response: Julie,

We're so glad you enjoyed staying at our cottage. I will make sure to bring an extension cord up! Thanks for the suggestion.

Really nice house. Short walk to the lake and the town beach. Really attentive owners who are truly concerned about making your stay enjoyable. Screened porch is a great place for drinks at night, sunsets, and relaxation. Go and enjoy!

A bright and airy cottage

  • 5 of 5
We only stayed for one night for a brief foray into the Berkshires, and we really enjoyed this charming cottage. The high ceilings in the great room added to the bright and airy sense, as did the crisp, clean style of the decor. It's simple yet has all the furnishings and features you might want for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is fully functional, and nicely organized.

Overall, everything was spotless, and I think it was brighter than the pictures might indicate. We went to the town beach for a few hours, and the lake was welcoming on a hot day, with a lifeguard on duty if you have children. Nearby towns have a wide range of restaurants and shops, something for almost any taste!
