Like something out of a dream.

Comfortable and peaceful, but above all a unique space that has been left to speak for itself. I loved spending time in the schoolroom around blackboards and desks. The location is also ideal--surrounded by fields of grazing cows, and just a short walk up the road to trails in a national forest. Also a great farm stand near by. It was dreamy in the winter, and I hope very much to see it again in the warmer months.
Owner's Response: Thank you! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! The warmer months are welcoming in a different way. Instead of fields of white snow, the rich soil allows the cows to graze in lush green grass. Lilac trees, butterfly bushes, Russian sage and dahlias bloom in the garden. Hope to see you again in Spring or Summer!

Return to the Berkshires

Thanks so much for this wonderful experience! It's so funny that I had to return to the Berkshires as a "tourist" to discover it. We had a great time. The kids loved the classroom and all of the toys.

It was fabulous to experience the cottage with just the perfect amount of snow!
Thanks for letting us sled all over the yard!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Ski and School Week

Dear Cheryl,
We had a great time. Me and my brother played school twice a day. We really enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfortable. It was interesting to go up the stairs for breakfast instead of going down the stairs. We liked playing with all the toys on the shelf . Thank you for letting us stay. It was fun being in the schoolhouse. We liked to be the teacher and students and we also liked writing and drawing.
Sincerely,
business

We have really, really enjoyed our stay at the Stone School Cottage. It's a lovely and homey cottage, with the history behind. I love the little details Cheryl has put around the whole house. I'm so glad we chose to stay here rather than any of the B&B down the road.
