Where you’ll be

Lee, Massachusetts, United States

Located on the Santarella Estate surrounded by gardens and storybook architecture. Formerly, sculptor Henry Hudson Kitson's Estate. Santarella is located in the Tyringham Valley, tucked away 3.5 miles from Mass. I-90, a lovely and magical place where one feels like they have stepped back in time. This is definitely a place to 'get away from it all', enjoy quiet, rural surroundings close to the Appalachian Trail and Tyringham Cobble for hiking and many lovely ponds for swimming or kayaking. The town has an exceptionally beautiful Swimming Pond about 2 miles away which our guests may use. There are BBQs and picnic tables and it is often available. A quick 15 minute drive to Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Lee, and Lenox where shopping, restaurants, and art await.

The Berkshire's wonderful outdoor and cultural attractions including Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Norman Rockwell, MassMOCA, and Hancock Shaker Village. In the winter quests can enjoy Ski Butternut, Bosquet, Jimney Peak, Otis Ridge and Catamount ski areas all within 20 - 45 minutes from the house.
