Having looked at over 80 properties for purchase in the Bershires, the Taggart House is truly unique. This property is perfectly situated within 15 minutes of all the amenities and attractions in the southern Berkshires. This fully restored Victorian estate is a 5 minute walk to the center of Stockbridge, yet quietly situated on 3 manicured acres along the Housatonic River.

Stunning Home! Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Taggart House! What a beautiful Victorian home and wonderful hosts! The house is huge and our group of 15 people never felt cramped. The property is very well equipped and is a short walk to main street and even hiking spots. I will highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

The kitchen is very well stocked and all the bedrooms are spacious and so are the bathrooms.

Family Reunion Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our ever growing family always looks forward to our annual getaway in the Berkshires. From grandparents, young parents, to little ones, the Taggart House has all that we could wish for! Kids can wander laps around the grand rooms. So much to explore! Adults can cozy up in reading nooks, nap nooks, and cookie nooks. Cooks will have fun in the large format kitchen with butlers pantry. Rare to find a house with en suite bathroom for all bedrooms. Enjoyed our walks to the town center and exploring ye old cemeteries and local architecture. Also close driving distance to grocery, antique shopping, restaurants and outlet shopping. Plus bonus, the owner, George, is the host with the most! We felt right at home! Would definitely recommend to large families looking for moments to gather as well as have private moments for R & R.

Excellent stay at the Taggart House!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at the Taggart House over the holidays. The house is so large that even our group of 12 never once felt cramped. Given the owner also lives on the property, it was very convenient if we needed him to show us something in the house, yet he never once intruded or made us felt like he was keeping tabs on our stay. The location right on Main Street was ideal, as popular places to visit such as the Red Lion were only a five minute walk away. The house has a very traditional feel yet is also updated with more modern amenities (great wifi, Netflix on TVs, double ovens, etc). All in all it was a great stay, and we're already talking about returning next year!

Beautiful Mansion close to skiing

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous historic house. We were there last MLK weekend. Very close to Butternut and other ski areas. Incredibly spacious with multiple bedrooms each with its own bath. Perfect for more than one family. Great room and dining room were really highlights.
