Overview

Lee House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Imagine that you are surrounded by mountains and yet in all but the winter months you have access to a beautiful lake and tennis courts.. The lake is stocked in the summer time with fish and offers swimming, canoeing, kayaking and a terrific pier.

The outlets are 5 minutes from this comfy house, and so is the quaint town of Lee where restaurants are abundant and you get a real flavor for what life is like in the Berkshires.

Throughout the year you have access to an abundance of cultural activities from theatre and dance to terrific music. Tanglewood is 10 minutes away and Jacobs pillow is 15 minutes from the house. The museums give you yearly access and Pittsfied has a great museum that boasts wonderful exhibits to inspire and encourage an artful spirit.

Pamper yourself at Canyon Ranch, 10 min away or a day of yoga when you visit Kripalu, (15 min) a place to stir your senses.

Enjoy the wood stove or the porch.

During the summer months we can rent for a minimum of 2 weeks. These are the rules set forth by our community. Please think of us again in the future if you are unable to stay for at least that length of time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the "tall house" for one month in the Leisure Lee community and had the best time. Family and friends visited, swam in the lake, rented a kayak and enjoyed Goose Pond. The house is nicely decorated, with wifi throughout and an easy kitchen to use. We went to Bish Bash Falls, and if you have never been there we highly recommend it. Edy was easy to interact with and she gave us a list of restaurants in the area. Though we had some rain, there was plenty to do since the outlets are 5 minutes away and the movie theater in Great Barrington is about 20 minutes away.This was a great get away and we hope to rent here again in the future. We give this house 5 stars.

Lee Home

  • 5 of 5

We had two families spend a long weekend at this home in Lee. The location was ideal. It was located near wonderful shopping and restaurants. We especially enjoyed Zucchini's in Pittsfield. The community in which the house is located allows for privacy, as the house is nestled in the trees. It also has wonderful amenities. We were able to take a short walk to the private lake and spent many hours on the tennis courts located next door.

The house itself had everything needed to enjoy our weekend. The layout of multiple levels allowed the children to have a space for themselves to hang out in. The kitchen was well stocked with quality pots, pans and dishes.

The owners were available to answer questions and always promptly returned our phone calls or emails. They take pride in their property and keep it well maintained. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a weekend in a beautiful location.

A wonderful month in the country

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a rustic setting near a lovely private lake. It is spacious, has a great kitchen, outdoor barbecue & comfy living room with cable tv. The owner is fabulous & pays close attention to all your needs. Since last summer, at our recommendation, she has added air conditioning in the living room & second bedroom If you have difficulty climbing stairs this may not be the ideal house for you but it's perfect for families & all others of all ages who can handle stairs. We liked it so much we're going back for another month this summer!

Very comfortable and

  • 5 of 5

This house was a very good base for our New Year's ski trip. Eddy was highly responsive and very easy to work with. The house was very clean throughout and the provisions were very generous. You get many more creature comforts than at a standard rental property. The wood stove was easy and effective. I can recommend the property without reservation as a toasty base for a winter trip.

Thanksgiving winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We are two families that normally alternate between homes for Thanksgiving and wanted to do something different this year. We looked around Lee since it was about halfway between each of us. We couldn't have been happier. The 12+ inches of snow that fell Wednesday just added to the setting. The house is in the woods. It has everything you might need for your stay. We really didn't explore any of the surrounding towns because we enjoyed being just being at the house. We walked to the nearby lake. Very nice. Edy was very easy to deal with. We communicated by email and phone. I definitely recommend this house.
