About Laurie Schechter

Our family has been renting in the Berkshires for years. We recently decided to buy a home both to use and to share. Seeing the potential in this charming home in desperate need of TLC, we brought it back to life. Who couldn't love its charm, central location and easy access to Lee, with its modern conveniences yet small town feel. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Laurie Schechter purchased this house in 2012

Why Laurie Schechter chose Lee

We love Lee! With its great restaurants, country stores and antiques, it is central to all in the Berkshires, with less traffic and tourists compared to some of the more popular Berkshire spots. From our home, you can walk into town for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, ice cream and shopping. Walk in another direction and you will find golf and tennis. Or drive just about anywhere else in minutes!

Cozy and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 friends rented this home for our 4th annual knitting retreat. We stayed 2 nights and wish we had stayed longer. The home is beautiful and charming and very complete. We appreciated the high quality of the renovations, furnishings and towels. We especially liked the option of a first floor bedroom since one of us was on crutches. While the house had a homey touch it did not feel cluttered or overly personalized. It was a perfect rental in a perfect location. Laurie was very responsive to communications.

We hope to return next March for 3 nights!!

Clean, updated, lovely

  • 4 of 5

The house is charming, plenty of room for everyone. We had two adults and three teenaged boys. Well-equipped. Updated kitchen and baths. Beautiful master suite on the first floor. TV room in front for the kids. Immaculate. Our only issues were the pillows. They need to be updated with firmer pillows. Very flat and uncomfortable. Instructions on how to use the coffee machine would also be appreciated. Otherwise, a great location and an all-around lovely house. It snowed overnight and the driveway and stairs to the porch were miraculously shoveled! Thanks for a great weekend.

Milestone Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We (party of 6) had a wonderful weekend at this home celebrating a milestone birthday with a visit to the Berkshires and Kripalu. The decor was beautiful and the house was spotless. Downstairs is a master bedroom with 1 queen bed/bath, washer/dryer, kitchen, back patio, front porch, living area, dining room, and TV room. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms (2 twins, 1 twin, and 1 queen) and a bath. We originally had plans to go out to dinner Saturday night, but realized we were already in the best spot in town and enjoyed dinner at home. The kitchen was the most equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a rental home. The owners have really thought of everything! Thank you for an amazing weekend and we cannot wait to return someday!

Seven sisters weekend

Loved this house. Great location to the town of Lee. House was bigger and even nicer than the pictures show. Short drive to other towns in the Berkshires. Communication and whole process with this rental was a breeze.

Charming and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Threee friends and I just spent a delightful weekend here. The house was beautiful and the location ideal. It was short walk into town, where there were great shops and restaurants. We came from Hartford Connecticut, Rochester NY, Bear Mountain NY and Summit New Jersey, so Lee's location just off I-90 made it a perfect meeting place. All the appliances were new and working fine, the bathrooms clean and bright, and 4 bedrooms for 4 people was a perfect arrangement. We all were grateful for the wifi too. Cable TV was available but we were having too much fun to watch TV.
