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.

It's True

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful little house that is literally in the heart of Lenox. We enjoyed our stay and using the cottage as a base of operations. A bagels and lox sandwich could be purchased less than a minute walk away. One hundred feet further on at Haven bakery and cafe were the best french fries I've ever had. Around the corner I could buy the NY Times, the Boston Globe, and the Berkshire Eagle as well restock the larder with milk and beer. For regular groceries needs, a short trip up route 7 will take you to a fantastic gourmet grocer called Guidos. A satisfying thing to do is to take an after dinner stroll and stop at Scoops for an ice cream cone. One word of caution, the local maps need to be updated as the Rockwell Museum is no longer located in the heart of Stockbridge. All in all a joyful stay made so much better by the convenience of the cottage, that truly is a "Small Oasis in the Heart of Lenox."

Cute location, but should have been cleaner

  • 3 of 5

I liked the location of the house. Unfortunately they property was not thoroughly cleaned before I arrived. The floors needed to be swept...there were bits of dust and dirt and leaves everywhere. I found too many crumbs in the silverware drawers...that was pretty yucky. Also, the couch and chair were very worn and needed to be cleaned.

Owner's Response: Oh dear, I'm upset to hear that the cleaning hasn't been up to its usual standard, and sincerely apologize. I know it's sometimes hard for the cleaning crew to keep up when the house is "changing hands" frequently, but have notified them about the problems Gail mentioned. (Cleaning the upholstery is a particular issue because it takes a few days to dry, but clearly it somehow needs to happen more often, which I will work on.)

lovely home base in the center of Lenox

  • 5 of 5

Penny's little house was the perfect place to call home for a month while I worked on a project in Lenox. It had everything I needed, was very comfortable, and perfectly located in the heart of Lenox. It was my second stay in the house and I am sure there will be another one in the future.

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.
