This is the perfect Berkshire home to swim, hike, leaf-peep, ski, sled, engage in the culture of the Berkshires (Tanglwood, Jacobs Pillow, Shakespeare and Co etc.), RELAX only minutes to Stockbridge Main St, Lee and Lenox.

A 1/4 mile drive takes you to a private home on its own (2.5 acre) lake. An aeration system runs 24/7, and keeps this one of the healthiest swimming holes in the Berkshires!

The space
A large great room with a stacked stone fireplace is the center of activity. The house is 2500 sq ft, featuring 3 bedrooms (the master bedroom featuring a new King Size Four Seasons Mattress), 3 full baths, and a large sun-room with a sofa bed for extra company.

Totally open floor plan downstairs, you have a kitchen and dining area open to the Great Room, with a cathedral ceiling all overlooking the water.

Outside is a large wrap around deck with a brand new (2020) hot tub built into the deck. At night, you can take a wonderful soak while studying a sky that is filled with stars.

There is also a fire pit to make s'mores, and plenty of open area behind and in front of the house for activities. There is a ping pong table in the back as well.

The house sits on 36 private acres, with hiking, swimming and fishing as some possible activities. Across the road is a park that has additional hiking trails. And all this is in the heart of the Berkshires, less than 5 minutes from downtown Stockbridge and Lee and less than 10 to Lenox, and just over 10 minutes from Great Barrington. But TOTAL privacy!

The Massachusetts Turnpike is 5 minutes away. Driving time to Boston is 2 hours, and New York City is 2.5 hours.

We are 10 min to tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co, the Norman Rockwell Museum and 15 min to Jacobs pillow. A short drive (per above) to all the other wonders of the Lee/Lenox/Stockbridge/Great Barrington area!

In the winter there is a huge sledding hill on our property right behind the house. We are 15 min drive to the awesome Butternut Ski Area and 30 min to Catamount.

Piece of heaven!
My husband and I returned for a second visit to this little paradise recently and I was comforted and surprised at how wonderful it all was again! I had wondered if it would have lost some of it's wonder the second time around and that was a big NO. Still as perfect and peaceful as it was on our first visit. From the wildlife to the sightseeing and shopping and poking around this lovely area back to the most perfect home for relaxation and unplugging, it really does not get any better. This home is comfortable, well equipped and clean. All you could ask for in this one lovely spot. It is not a question of IF we will return it is when. Love it!

Perfect 10 ++
It was our good fortune to have rented this house for a week in mid October. This home and property( 35 acres and beautiful private lake) was absolutely fabulous, spacious, tasteful, comfortable furnishings and very well equipped. Our dog enjoyed romping on the property and wading in the lake. The setting is very private but so close to all you want to do in the Berkshires. Owner was very responsive and over all great to deal with. Would highly recommend for anytime of the year.

Heaven on Earth
This is truly a "one of a kind" property. Aside form being quiet, private, clean, comfortable, easy to locate and luxurious, it has every amenity you could want while still feeling like your camping in the woods. The views are stunning and the home itself and the property are very well taken care of. I would recommend this to anyone seeking a respite from the real world, who wants a very centralized location close to everything special in the Berkshires, and to those who love to cook, be in front of the fire place and relax in the bounty and beauty of the Berkshires!. We are DEFINITELY going back!

Our Stay was perfect.
My Wife and myself rented for the week. The pictures on the website do give you a pretty good idea what this rental is all you will not be disappointed. The house is very well maintained and the owner really makes you feel at home. I can say that he really wants you to enjoy his home and you will.The place is beautiful and relaxing and you are only about 5 mins from Stockbridge and about the same from Lee. The private lake is a real gem..I would highly recommend this house/owner.

Better than the pictures
My husband and I spent two weeks at this lovely house with another couple. We live in Los Angeles so took it sight unseen. We were delighted to see that the pictures truly conveyed the serenity of the setting and the features of the house. We were more than comfortable. It's clean, well equipped, lots of outdoor "toys" and great instructions for using everything. Plus the house is perfected located in the Berkshires, just a short drive to all the best places. Would definitely recommend it.

A quiet and peaceful getaway
The property is incredible with a quiet and peaceful setting. David has everything set up perfectly, along with an easy "instruction manual" to make your stay much easier. We and our 2 dogs spent time in the pond, hiking through the woods and then coming back in to grill up some dinner on the great deck (along with outside speakers!). Although it is very quiet, you are very close to Stockbridge, Lee and Lennox for dining (his manual also has some reviews and menus which made things easy). For shopping, there is anything from quaint shops in the various towns to the Lee outlets so even if you forget anything, everything is just a short drive away along with a grocery store and package shop. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are done well with multi zone a/c for the summer, as well as heating for the winter. The outside firepit made for some relaxing nights by the pond, listening to the bullfrogs sing their nightly chorus. Also, if you like to fish, there are some pickerel in the lake along with what seemed like bluegill near the reeds. We look forward to coming again and would highly recommend this great home and property to families along with their four legged friends!

Wonderful Family Vacation
What a beautiful house and setting this was. We took a family vacation in September and we could not of been more pleased with the location, setting and functionality of the house. We loved sitting on the deck, making s'mores in the fire pit, relaxing in the hot tub and fishing everyday. The house provided all the amenities and was a perfect amount of space for all of us. When we told the owner the grill was not working he had a new one sent over the next day. We had a great time and hope to make this a family tradition every year.

Everything you could EVER want!
There are not enough stars to rate this home and location. Everything you see in the pictures
and read in the owners description are accurate and understated. This is a piece of heaven.The peace and quiet is incredible, the pond is serene, the fireplace inside and the fire pit outside are just excellent-not to mention the awesome hot tub. The house is designed
perfectly and has everything you could want. We will be back and many times-as long they continue to share this piece of paradise. I cannot think of another thing to add to either the home or the location to improve it-it is like being in your own world and when you are ready
to return, life is right down the road in the most quintessential "New England" area I have seen. If there were more stars to rate this as better than expected I would have been glad to have given it a "10".

Too good to be true, but it is!
Everything you see in description and other reviews is accurate to the letter. My family had wonderful time, the lake is amazing, as clean as it can possibly be, there's even crayfish! Exceptional privacy, yet all the shopping you might need minutes away. I almost don't want to write this review to keep competition away! Highly recommended, can't wait to come spend time there again!
