Overview

About the property

2000 Sq Ft. 4 Bedroom, 2 bathroom home In The Heart Of The Berkshires.

June, July and August have recently opened up due to a summer cancellation. June is available for daily, weekly or monthly rental. July is available for weekly or monthly rental. August is available for weekly rental only due to one confirmed weekly booking.

Our ancestral home is located in a tranquil setting on a quiet road approximately 1 mile from Stockbridge Town Center. The home is one of three buildings on the 4 acre property. The Norman Rockwell Museum, The National Shrine of Divine Mercy, Tanglewood, Berkshire Theater Festival, Jacobs Pillow and many other attractions are located within easy driving distance.

Walking into town, either on the road or along the railroad tracks, all the while taking in the scenery and exploring along the way, is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon.

Why Jim Farley chose Stockbridge

charming comfortable house in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, with 3 adult children, immensely enjoyed our Columbus Day weekend stay at the Stockbridge Farmhouse. The house feels very spacious - perks of eat in kitchen, separate dining room, ample sized bedrooms, lovely sitting and living room areas. It feels well loved and lived in, clean and well equipped. The cabinets in the kitchen go on and on - a space for everything, and every utensil, pot, pan you could want. Two sets of dishes, one for everyday and one in the china cabinet, for dinner parties. We had friends and family join us for dinner one night - there were eight of us at the table, and we didn't even use all the extra table leaves. But what I like most about the house is the feeling of peace that pervades it. The first floor living/dining/kitchen areas are at interesting angles to each other, so sitting in one, you can see through to another, each with its own windows looking in different directions. The house is surrounded by trees (there is a yard to sit in, don't worry). And the dappled sunlight in the morning is more than lovely. The house is in a great location: minutes away from Stockbridge town center (which is in the heart of the Berkshires) but with a feeling of being on its own, out in the country. Siblings Katie and Bill, whose great grandfather built this house, were super, very pleasant, efficient and helpful; Katie takes care of the arrangements, and Bill is the caretaker who lives in another house on the property. In short, I most highly recommend the Stockbridge Farmhouse for your stay in the Berkshires.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This house is immaculate, well stocked and comfortable. Everything you could ask for is provided. The kitchen and bathrooms sparkle. The towels and linens are beautiful and look new. The landscape and flower gardens are beautiful and while you have a sense of being in the country you are actually within a few minutes of main St. We love this house and would highly recommend it. We love Bill who lives in another house on the property. He is super helpful and even let me use his Big Y card.

Lovely in every way

  • 5 of 5

Delightful in every way. A warm welcoming home that is well maintained and lovely. It is a 5 minute drive from downtown but you are in the country. We saw some juvenile Bobcats in the brush! Loved the time we spent there. Highly recommend this home.

Great place in Stockbridge

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this home! Truly felt we stepped into someone's life with all the vintage photos & antiques. The place was just lovely. There was plenty of room for our family of 6, including 4 tweens. Bill was very friendly, helpful, and accessible. It should be known that the house also has Internet, wifi, sonos, smart tv, & washer/dryer. Katie (Bill's sister) was a great help too when I initially had difficulty renting the property on the website. Overall, it was a fantastic stay...AND in close proximity to Ski Butternut. Thanks for the nice time!
