Lee House Rental Photos and Description

Our completely renovated farmhouse is set upon a hilltop overlooking downtown Lee. It is a perfect spot for culture, sports, relaxation, holidays and gatherings with family and friends.

The kitchen is newly renovated with granite counters, all new cabinets/appliances with a slider to the back deck and open to a charming sitting room. There is a formal dining room and a front family room with distant views.

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!

Inviting, modern, charming. Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

If you are searching for a great place to stay in the Berkshires, this is a great bet, both in terms of location and the home itself! Highly recommended.

Location: You literally cannot go wrong. Perched on a rise with a great view of a hill across the way from the wraparound farmer's porch, the location is never the less a ten minute walk away from the inviting Main Street of Lee. Stockbridge and Lenox are just a very quick drive away.

Home itself: Charming yet sparkling and modern might be a way to describe the home. From enjoying a morning in the rocking chair on the front porch, to an evening in either the family or living rooms, to the beautifully maintained restrooms and bedrooms, to the well-stocked and gleaming modern kitchen, this place was wonderful. Clearly a lot of time and thought went into making the home inviting, and it was well-received. The pictures simply do not do it justice, and you'll wish you could spend more time enjoying the home.

Wonderful Labor Day weekend escape

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and well appointed. The owner was super accommodating -- allowing us to check in early without an issue. Lovely base for exploring the Berkshires. And the Lee town beach is fabulous. Perfect for young children. We would love to return.

an absolutely lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes through HomeAway in the United States and Europe. This home is one of my favorites - It is lovely, clean, well-stocked and comfortable! Also, short walk to the quaint town of Lee and only a few minutes drive up rt. 7 to Lenox. My family stayed here last Thanksgiving weekend (2014) and are doing the same this year. I meant to write a review last year,but now that I am getting ready to travel to Lee again this year and stay at this great home, I was reminded that I never wrote the review. I am so excited to be staying at this home again. It is a GREAT rental...Perfect in every way....

Wonderful property in Lee, MA

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this home this past weekend with three of my friends and I couldn't have been more pleased. the house was spacious, inviting and very well appointed. The furniture was comfortable and the home was spotless. It was close to the shops and restaurants in town. We were so pleased to have room to spread out and be comfortable rather than being stuck in a hotel room. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone.

Lovely home in Lee, MA

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and comfortable place to spend a relaxing few days. The house is well-designed and tastefully decorated, and it is well-appointed and well maintained. The property manager is responsive and pleasant. We visited in winter and skied at Butternut, just a short distance away in Great Barrington, where there are nice restaurants, shops, theaters, etc. We are a family of four and traveled with a friend and her teenage daughter. Accommodations were perfect for us. We would definitely return. I highly recommend it!

Great House for a few people

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming house in the catskills close to the quaint village of Lee where there are a few shops and restaurants to see. There are hiking trails within 15 min as well and the house itself is quiet and relaxing. A great find.
