Contemporary Berkshires Retreat
Our lovely 3 bedroom, 3 bath, almost 3,000 sq. ft. home is an ideal Berkshires location! It is equidistance from Lenox and Stockbridge Center, and walking distance to Kripalu Yoga Center and Tanglewood Performing Arts Center.
The interior of this home has been completely renovated for a contemporary, but comfortable vibe with a large open footprint, looking out onto private meadows and wetland sanctuary. The open floor plan invites you into a living room with quality furnishings, a flatscreen tv, and fireplace. Right behind the living room is a dining area with a table that seats 6 and that has sliding glass doors, which open up to a beautiful and spacious deck. The kitchen is sleek and modern with stainless steel appliances and an island inlaid with a sink. The island countertop has 3 bar stools for casual dining or morning coffee.
All three bedrooms have king size beds and a sitting area. The master bathroom has a large shower with a rain shower head and opens up to another a cathedral sitting area with tall surrounding windows, and contains a couch, matching chair and a reclining chair and flat TV screen. The upstair bedrooms are each quite spacious and there is a brand new renovated bathroom that services these bedrooms. Each bedroom has soft accent walls for modern ambience.
You will experience relaxation at its best at this property, which is surrounded by natural beauty. The deck overlooks the wetlands and is a short walk to our private beach, where we have a kayak and canoe that are available for your use. Also on the property is a private clubhouse, at which you have access to an exercise room, large indoor pool and hot tub, and 2 outdoor clay tennis courts.

This home is absolutely lovely, comfortable, beautifully done, and so beautifully situated in an enclave of only 3 homes. Just a short distance to town of either Stockbridge and Lenox. Actually it’s close to several towns in the Berkshires. The owner left us very detailed instructions about the workings of the house. She was very responsive and helpful on a few calls we made to her. This is a wonderful place to stay in the Berkshires. I highly recommend it and I would love to return. Definitely deserves 5 stars.

My wife and I recently spent our wedding anniversary week at this charming cozy home in the heart of Stockbridge, MA. With the foliage blazing vibrant colors of red, orange, and gold the home was nestled along a beautiful woodland area. It was extremely close to Main Street In Stockbridge and a stone’s throw away from Lenox. Gail (homeowner) was wonderful and provided detailed instructions about the property and surrounding area. This is definitely a property my wife and I would return to annually!! ”
