About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 5-7)

A Warm, Inviting Home: There are countless ways to relax in this house. It's filled with books and music--not only an extensive collection of CDs, but also a Mason & Hamlin grand piano. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes and silverware and begs you to cook in it, and the fireplace warms the winter months (in addition to an oil-burning heating system). Sun lovers will want to lie in the hammock on the deck. And for those times when you must be inside, there's a wireless broadband Internet connection. In the Center of Everything: Distance to Kripalu: 2.5 miles; To Bousquet Ski Area: 8.8 miles; To Butternut: 10.8 miles; To Tanglewood: 3.1 miles; To Stockbridge Bowl Town Beach: .8 miles. Dogs are welcome. The calendar shows availability and is kept up to date.

Peaceful and quiet retreat in great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed with another couple and two young kids. Great house for the family, nice and peaceful location. Well stocked kitchen, close to downtown and other Berkshire attractions. Can even hear Tanglewood outside at night! Two bedrooms up and one downstairs, both baths are on the lower level. Two full beds and a single, A/C in the windows except in one top bedroom where the window is too small, but the owner left a fan and the cool nights make it just fine.

Owner was very attentive, house was clean and had everything we needed. Backyard views are nice, too, and the deck was great for grilling.

Relaxation Delight

  • 5 of 5

8 Interlaken review

On the July 4th weekend 2016 we rented this wonderful house. There were 4 of us(2 couples) and we had plenty of room. The house is comfortable and perfect for any season. The kitchen was well stocked. The place was very clean. Our favorite was the view while relaxing on the deck. We saw and heard many birds. We understood why it is called 'Bird Paradise'. It is only 5 minutes to Tanglewood. Internet connection was great.

The owner Dean was very friendly , accessible and a pleasure to deal with.

We had such a great time. We've already asked to book it the same time next year!

A Sweet Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful rental. My husband and I took a long weekend in February here with our dog. It is a house with wonderful open living space; and this space is artfully furnished to provide plenty of room for solitude as well. We loved the grand piano and the varied book collection and cd's as well. It is tastefully decorated with comfortable couches and chairs, and lots of them.

There is a wonderful view from all of the back windows and especially from a sitting area in the corner that provides a great place to drink morning coffee, read a book and contemplate.

We didn't use the two extra bedrooms, but there is plenty of space for more than two here.

It is in a very nice location, near Stockbridge Center and also Lee, Lenox and surrounding towns. So, the perfect spot to hunker down or use as a home base to take in all of the areas many attractions.

The owner provided excellent customer service too!

We'll come again!

Peace and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I wanted to get away for a couple of days. We lucked out when we found this location.

The kitchen is well stocked the house was very neat and clean.We Barbequed our dinner. But there are loads of great restaurants in the area. It is close to town but still very secluded and quiet. We had a wonderful time, there are so many beautiful state parks close by. We visited Beartown State Forest and Natural Bridge State Forest. We were only there for 2 days but we had a really wonderful relaxing stay. My dogs also enjoyed the trip. Thanks again Dean!

Map

Berkshire Beaver Lodge: Come springtime, vibrant orange Baltimore Orioles nest in the willows. A Great Blue Heron returns to the adjacent beaver pond year after year. More than 75 bird species have been spotted on the property, not to mention the occasional snapping turtle. Thanks to a thriving wetland ecosystem, an abundance of frogs and bats--natural predators of the mosquito--keep the pest problem down. The viewing platform for all this wildlife is the southern facing back deck, which also provides a front-row seat for the fall color display on the mountain out back.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Snowboarding/mobiling, Tubing, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Racquetball, Hot Air Ballooning
