Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6-8

Josiah Loomis, when he owned this property in the early 1800's, could never have imagined what it would look like 200 years later. His 3 room farmhouse has grown into a 2,200 square foot beauty, with all the amenities 21st Century people want. The stone patios look out on flower gardens, woods and landscaped fields, and the road, known in the 1820's as the Massachusetts Turnpike, is a dead-end street, with no more than 10 cars passing on an average day.

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't really do this house justice. It's spacious, comfy, and well-maintained. It also has large and spectacular grounds that had several different spaces for relaxing and enjoying a warm afternoon or evening. The location is secluded and peaceful, while still being a convenient (15-20 minutes or so) drive to Lenox or Pittsfield. It also had a very nicely stocked kitchen, for those who would rather stay in. I couldn't have asked for a lovelier place to spend a long weekend in the Berkshires.

family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious home and more patios than we needed. The main patio and kitchen area were well used for a family gathering of 7.

We had everything we needed. The grounds have a lot of landscaped nooks and crannies for exploring and tons of privacy.

The couple was very welcoming and helpful. I especially liked the upstairs lounge and vined railing.

It's convenient to area attractions and I especially liked the botanical gardens and enjoyed the grounds of this house for it's numerous gardens. Lots of books are available inside and I added 2 more for the library. Although the weather was fair and we were outside, indoor enclosed porches would have been comfortable to use. Chipmunks and Jays scold you in the morning for sitting and having coffee and make you laugh.

The Norman Rockwell Museum and downtown Stockton are nearby. Lunch at the Red Lion Inn was a great experience. Check out the lounges for their antiques on display.

Very close to the Mass Pike, I would stay again to explore more attractions in the Berkshires there wasn't time for.

Everything the Berkshires have to offer is within 15 minutes. Tanglewood, Berkshire Theater Festival, Shakespeare and Company, Norman Rockwell Museum, art galleries, antiques, lakes, mountains, skiing, everything. The setting is private and beautiful. The neighbors are friendly and unobtrusive (and out of sight). A place to enjoy, winter or summer.
