Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

A Tanglewood-lover's haven, this is a tiny but comfortable historic cottage set in the heart of Lenox. The professionally decorated house is within walking distance of Tanglewood and Shakespeare & Co., and of course all the galleries, shops, and restaurants for which Lenox is famous. Numerous hiking trails are close by (beautiful Kennedy Park is a short walk away), as are Laurel Lake and Stockbridge Bowl - both with public access for boaters, and sandy beaches for swimmers and sunbathers alike. Winter sports - downhill or cross-country skiing, snowboarding, skating, snowshoeing etc. - are within easy reach. All the attractions of the Berkshires, both North and South County, are just a short drive away.

The kitchen has maple cabinets, granite countertops and a beautiful cork floor. The bathroom (shower, no tub) is carefully designed for comfort and functionality. There is a small fenced and landscaped back yard to contain little people and well-behaved four-legged family members.

charming, comfy, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my time in this home. The ambience is welcoming which makes it a great place to relax. I stayed for the month of February and really appreciated being in the heart of Lenox. Hope I can stay in this lovely "oasis" again!

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot to reconnect with loved ones. Cozy and well appointed. Great lighting, nice, neat, clean and warm; soaker shower head was a fabulous bonus and pocket doors, fenced in mini yard and central location...tres magnifique. Walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants. Try Haven for breakfast, salted carmel mocha breve, you won't be disappointed. Bagels and Brews with a fantastic selection of microbrews before dinner. Excellent time and amazingly simple booking with Penny. Will absolutely return.

Amazing cottage in the center of town!

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable! While small, it has everything you could possibly need and is beautifully decorated. It was right downtown and was perfectly located. It was a fast and easy walk to all the bars and restaurants of Lenox. Also, Penny was great. She responded promptly and was very accomodating.

A Perfect Cottage in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking to get away from the city for Thanksgiving weekend with our dog, to a place where we can enjoy the outdoors but still have amenities such as good food.

We were so lucky, and happy, to have found Penny's cottage, which is truly in the center of Lenox. Great dining options are literally a doorstep away. We were within walking distance of Kennedy Park as well, which had great hiking trails, and was even more fun with the snow. Our friends live in Lee, which was only a 10 minute drive away. It was the perfect location.

The house itself was the perfect size for us - a couple and a dog. It is very cozy, clean, and well maintained. There is a small fenced in backyard which our dog very much enjoyed (especially coming from an apartment in the city).

And finally, Penny was great. She made our stay seamless. She is responsive and understanding. We couldn't have asked for anything more, really. We can't wait until our next trip to the Berkshires and will definitely stay here again. Thank you Penny!

Perfect spot in the heart of Lenox

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is adorable and the perfect size for a couple (and a pup). It is well-situated in the heart of Lenox to walk to everything. We had a minor issue with the Wi-Fi not working, but Penny addressed in a reasonable amount of time. I wouldn't suggest this for larger groups, unless your stay will be very short.

Great place. Easy rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Valerie. My apologies again about the WiFi, it took me a little while to figure out what was wrong.. You're absolutely right about limiting the number of people in this little house ... but for two it seems to be ideal.
