Hi, my name is Henry and I design and build custom homes, and my wife Brenda is a classic style artist. We designed and built this beautiful home to create a wonderful and comfortable place to enjoy the natural surroundings of the mountains and lakes of the Berkshires.
Henry purchased this House in 2004
Why Henry chose Stockbridge
Stockbridge Massachusetts is truly “New England” yet, just 2-1/2 hours from New York and Boston. The house is on two acres of a park like setting with hundreds of pine trees, sprawling front lawn, and wrap around gardens, stone front porch and screened in back porch within walking distance to Stockbridge Bowl lake. The home is centrally located in the heart of the Berkshires, just two minutes from Tanglewood and 10-30 minutes from almost everything Berkshireian. The house is located on one of the prettiest secondary country roads in Stockbridge, with easy access all year round, yet private, but not secluded.

Perfect setting for our book group!
This is truly a “home away from home.”
This light filled home was the perfect setting for the six of us who gathered for our book group weekend in the Berkshires!
The house was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The art incredible. It is a warm and comfortable (by every measure) home with every need anticipated. Anything you need to cook a meal is found in the gorgeous and thoughtfully laid out kitchen so we ended up eating our meals at home.
Excellent communication with the owner.
A privilege to enjoy this weekend with good friends amidst such comfort in this beautiful natural setting. We all plan to return!
Thank you for your kind words, and look forward to having you, and your friends return to our Stockbridge home for your next stay in the Berkshires.
Owners thoughtful in every way to make your stay exceptional!
This is your place!
If you are looking for a perfect location in the Berkshires for a group of friends to spend time, this is your place! Henry's home is maintained and decorated very nicely and has every amenity that you may want in a home. We love cooking home meals and the kitchen was very nicely equipped with every utensil you may need. We spent most of our time together on the 2nd floor family room + kitchen table, however, there is also a nice family room with a fireplace and TV on the first floor. Although we didn't use the fireplaces, there were two of them with plenty of seasoned wood to use. Our group consisted of two families of four (a total of 4 adults and 4 girls) and the house felt very comfortable with plenty of room.
In the summer months, there is a beautiful screened in porch and deck to enjoy the outdoor scenery. The house is set back from the road and is situated on a nice piece of property, so that you are not directly looking into neighbors homes. Although we didn't drive around the lake, the Stockbridge Bowl is just down the street for easy access. Tanglewood is a couple miles up 183, where you can enjoy all types of music -- and I believe is one of the best things to do in the Berkshires during the summer.
The house was super clean when we arrived and we were greeted by Henry's caretaker. She showed us around the house, answered any questions and made us feel at home. Henry was always reachable via email, phone or text, if we had any questions and responded very quickly.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a beautiful home, in a perfect location close enough to the lake, Lee outlets, Tanglewood, Mass Moca, Lenox, Great Barrington, Norman Rockwell Museum, Stockbridge, Red Lion Inn skiing at Butternut or Jiminy Peak etc. etc.. this is your place!
Perfect house for family gatherings
Our family includes three couples, one with two children, plus aging parents from the Berkshires. Our crowd, ranging in age from 6 to 91, has been staying at this wonderful house for several years. Based on our previous experiences here, our expectations are high, and Henry (the owner) never fails to exceed them.
The house is designed to accommodate a large group. Bedrooms are nicely appointed, family rooms are available upstairs and down, and there’s more than enough room for everyone to enjoy long conversations or quiet naps. The kitchen is equipped to encourage cooking at home, which we usually do. The views from every window take advantage of the site on which the house was built. In warm weather, there’s a spacious screened-in deck for outdoor dining. On chilly mountain evenings, there’s a crackling fire to warm bodies and souls.
Perhaps the most distinctive feature of this property is its owner: Henry is the perfect, totally invisible host, caring for every amenity before we arrive, available should we have questions at any time during our stay, always eager to improve our time in his home. The place is great; the owner is even better.
We’ve enjoyed other places on our visits to The Berkshires but this one is clearly the best. Highly recommended!
Splendid Thanksgiving Stay
A beautiful home in a quiet area. Close to the towns of Stockbridge and West Stockbridge and easy access to the Mass. Tpke. A spectacular kitchen, comfortable family room, and well-appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. This was perfect for our family of 10 for a couple of days for Thanksgiving. Screened-in porch and dining area would be perfect for a summer stay.
Great retreat in the Berkshires
This is a beautiful, well-furnished home that is comfortable for a group for a weekend or longer. It was comfortable, attractive and quiet, and our group of 6 would be happy to return. It's near many attractions including restaurants and museums but still gives you a panoramic view of the woods. It's convenient to the Mass Pike but feels a world away. The owner was easy to deal with and welcoming.
