This unique and special home was originally the carriage house for the neighboring 1881 mansion. It has been totally remodeled and professionally decorated at the highest quality levels. The home is upscale, luxurious and sharply designed, lived in by the owners, that should not be confused with a typical 'rental' unit. You will be entering a world of class and comfort with an understated elegance and style.
The property is located on the hill top adjacent to the center of historic Lenox; it offers open, unobstructed views of the splendid Berkshire Mountains from its wide, furnished back porch. Perfect for sipping cocktails after a day of enjoying everything that the Berkshires have to offer. Adjacent to the home are two of the famed 'Berkshire Cottages' (actually exquisite mansions), miles of development restricted woods extending from the back porch and lawn – creating an oasis of green space in the center of the town of Lenox. The historic Ventfort Hall is across the street, and shops, restaurants, galleries, coffee shops and Shakespeare and Company are all within just a 2 minute walk.
The home has 4 bedrooms, each with its own private bath. 1 king, 2 queens and 1 full bed. Three of the bedrooms have flat screen TVs with satellite and cable and high speed wireless internet throughout. A large, bright, modern fully equipped kitchen with stone countertops, an island and GE Monogram stainless steel appliances. The dining area has a magnificent custom dining room table of Madagascar ebony that can extend to seat up to 12. An outdoor propane grill is included. AC and heat with 6 separate zones. Approximately 3000 sq ft. The lawn is manicured with beautiful professional landscaping and flowers.
Pets Allowed: The home has a doggie door that opens to a very large fenced in yard. The owner will allow 1 or 2 well behaved and house-trained small or medium sized dogs. No puppies. No cats.

This home has been a careful remodel and design project over 3 years. We created this as our personal summer family residence and seasonal vacation home. Our home contains our personally selected original artwork and creative finds, but you will not be peppered with walls of family photos. This should feel like your own elegant Lenox home during your stay, and we hope you will and enjoy and treat it with love.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
The Berkshires have so much to see and do, and Lenox is the heart, which is why so many of the 19th century industrialists built their summer 'cottages' here. With Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co, Jacob's Pillow, museums, shops, galleries, Canyon Ranch, countryside for hiking, biking, skiing, water-sports, it's an amazing place to enjoy life. In the fall, the area comes alive with all the brilliant foliage colors, arts, crafts, and harvest festivals. Take a scenic drive in the country or hike, bike or golf. Fine dining at area establishments featuring the seasons delights.
Nearly everything is within walking distance, or a very short drive.
All of the reviews are correct, this house is amazing! The location is steps from the center of town and the shops and the property is beautiful with a perfectly maintained private garden with seating areas. The home itself is perfect for vacation, it is very nicely decorated, high end all of the way but also very comfortable. The views of the mountains and trees from the master bedroom windows or the veranda are spectacular. The kitchen has all of the essentials that you need to prepare a meal and they have a grill outside. I can't imagine finding a better place to stay anywhere in the Berkshires, it was a super memorable family vacation and I hope to come back next year. The owner was also a pleasure to work with.
this house is amazing. It is beautiful and comfortable and quiet...yet the shortest walk into town. The house is furnished in a most comfortable yet sophisticated way....and the views from the master bedroom are magical. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful Berkshires getaway!
I stayed here recently with my daughter and friends. We all agreed that this was the nicest place we have ever stayed! The view, the comfort, and the overall layout made for a relaxing, beautiful weekend. Amy the owner was great to deal with. It is clear that this is a loved house. I will definitely make this an annual trip if possible!
We recently spent a wonderful week at this lovely renovated carriage house that is steps to Lenox and walking distance to Tanglewood. The house is a perfect blend of old world charm and state of the art renovation with personal touches and a spectacular mountain view from the great room and master bedroom. It was a pleasure to work with the owner.
We took a long weekend with just two couples (family) and were so pleasantly surprised at every detail. The art, the furnishings, the views, the location was all perfect! We flew into the Albany Airport, rented a car, drove 50 minutes to Lenox and then never used the car again while we were there. We walked to Canyon Ranch and had day spa services- AMAZING. Walked into town and found great restaurants and shops. The Kemble House next door has fabulous food and a wonderful bar but mostly we hung around the beautiful Carriage house and back porch. You don't want to miss the secret garden down beyond the expansive back yard. I would highly recommend this property!
We had a wonderful stay here for a long weekend in October
No detail was spared in the design/renovation of the house. The fixtures, appliances, lighting, artwork, furniture and decor are all top notch and in excellent taste. The house has everything you could possibly need from direct T.V. to gas BBQ grill to WiFi to a sound system wired for an iPod. In addition to the spacious master suite and two bedrooms upsatirs there is a large guest suite downstairs. This was perfect as out parents were traveling with our family. The views from the back porch and master bedroom are breathtaking. We were there in peak foliage season but I imagine it would be equally stunning in Winter or Summer. Though everything is extremely high end the house is remarkably comfortable. This is the kind of house you would love to spend the day lounging around in, however given the location its hard to do.
We have been spending time in the Berkshires for nearly 30 years. There is so much to do that it is impossible to summarize. Lenox is in the middle of everything and this house is only 3 blocks from the center of Lenox. It is close enough to walk to restaurants or shopping but far enough outside of town that you dont feel the hustle and bustle.
The owners were remarkable easy to deal with. They were happy to answer any questions in advance of our visit. Getting keys, sending payment and receiving refund of deposit were seamless.
I would HIGHLY recommend this house (and likely will to friends)!
Winter Rates do not holiday weeks such as Christmas or Thanksgiving.
