Overview

Berkshires Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

A newly renovated cabin located in a quiet summer community. New kitchen, bath, eat-in dining back porch, new paint and roof and floors redone. Stone fireplace centers the living area.

Large screened in front porch has both dining area, sitting areas and futon for sleeping. Two bedrooms downstairs with a queen sized bed and twin beds. Loft has 2 double beds and living room has a double futon as well.

Lots of trees and flowers. Walk to the town beach which has picnic tables and grills. Short drive to the towns of Stockbridge and Lenox, all cultural activities, nature and bike trails. Great sleeping as it is generally cooler at night no matter how hot during the day.

Fabulous restaurants in the area, plenty of theatre and great concerts at Tanglewood. Bring a picnic and hear fabulous music under the stars if you don't have tickets to the shed. Great shopping in Great Barrington and Lenox and outlet mall in Lee.

Check out up to date activities at the Berkshire Visitors Bureau web site.

About The Owner

Love gardening, kayaking, theater, concerts and photography when not working in marketing for travel and hospitality clients.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1980

Why The Owner chose Berkshires

We finally moved here full time after spending time here summer after summer. It is a relaxing drive from NYC and Boston, very pastoral setting with lots of outdoor activities along with wonderful theater from Shakespeare & Co, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Barrington Stage, Williamstown Theater and Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony. Museums such as The Norman Rockwell, The Clark, Berkshire Museum and Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio. Lots to do and very relaxing.

What makes this cabin unique

Very well located between the towns of Stockbridge and Lenox and within walking distance to the Stockbridge town beach. A mile from the Lion's Gate at Tanglewood. Quiet summer community with lots of time spent on the front or back porch.

Comfortable rustic cottage in the Berkshires

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to spend a weekend in Western Mass. Close to downtown Stockbridge, lakeside beach, Tanglewood, Rockwell Museum, and other Berkshire attractions. Maureen was very helpful and responsive, and we had no issues during our stay. We would definitely consider renting again.

Perfect Cabin in the Berkshires

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice cabin with a wonderful screened in porch. The owners have made it very comfortable with nice linens and pillows and extra towels. It is walking distance to the Stockbridge Bowl and a short drive to everything. We loved it and so did our dogs!

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin! It's in a great location, easily walkable to the Stockbridge Bowl beach and a very short ride to Lenox Center and Tanglewood. We made good use of the beautiful stone fireplace and enjoyed the lovely front and back porches. Hope we can return soon!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had the sweetest stay here! The cabin has everything you need. And more importantly the energy is great. No drama, easy owner who was welcoming to my well behaved dog. It's so nice when people understand they are part of your family. PERFECT location if you will be attending worships at Kirpalu. I will most definitely stay here again. Thank you so much!

Rustic Retreat

  • 3 of 5

Location is good (Tanglewood right up the road, Stockbridge beach a short walk down a steep hill), and cabin was tidy. But be prepared for a rustic retreat! No washer/dryer, kitchen is very small and has the bare necessities, but the stove, oven and toaster were all in need of a good cleaning. The cabin was very musty when we arrived, maybe because of the rainy weather? Lots of cobwebs (especially in the loft), and not much ventilation, since most of the old wooden windows wouldn't open. Front porch is nice, back porch has no ventilation (or working outlets to accommodate a fan). Be warned: the electrical is very outdated, and there are only a few working outlets available throughout the cabin.

Owner's Response: Both the kitchen and back porch were totally renovated last year and the kitchen is well equipped. The back porch has all new windows which do open for ventilation. This is the first that we had heard that the outlet on the back porch was not operable and have an electrician scheduled to look at it and do necessary repairs. We did not indicate that there was a washer/dryer at the property. Will definitely talk to the cleaning crew about cobwebs and kitchen! As of Spring 2012,washer/Dryer installed. Changed cleaning crews and no complaints since.
