About Henry

Hi, my name is Henry and I design and build custom homes, and my wife Brenda is a classic style artist.

The house is on two acres of a park like setting with hundreds of pine trees, sprawling front lawn, and wrap around gardens, stone front porch and screened in back porch within walking distance to Stockbridge Bowl lake.

The home is centrally located in the heart of the Berkshires, just two minutes from Tanglewood and 10-30 minutes from almost everything Berkshireian.

BEAUTIFUL home, perfect location, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Henry is wonderful, he greeted us at the house and gave us a quick run though of each of the rooms making sure to point out heat/ac units, extra towels, etc. all the things we would have spent time trying to figure out. His house is absolutely beautiful, the area is serene and we enjoyed some morning runs but so still only a few minutes from Lenox, everything was convenient. We loved our stay and are already thinking about when we can return next!

Second to None

Couldnt have been better - in ANY way!

Extremely pleasant, low-key, accommodating, good humored, 5-star Henry was more responsive to our calls and questions than any homeowner we've ever encountered. Beautiful, clean, orderly home is set back from the road nestled in a stand of white pines. Long open front lawn provides a sense of privacy and calm. Lovely spaces within - well lit, open floor plan (on main level), airy, fresh, very attractively appointed. Appreciated fine woodwork and custom cabinetry throughout. Quiet neighborhood invites morning and afternoon walking and running. We hiked 13 (mostly Appalachian) Trails, attended many concerts at Tanglewood (3 minutes from the house), visited any number of historic homes, museums and galleries from Stockbridge to Williamstown to North Adams, attended local theater, savored delicious meals at Alta, Bistro Zinc and Nudel. Our SINGLE disappointment is that this wonderful house is NOT available to us again next August - lucky lucky returning family! Nonetheless, we hope to return some time soon again.

Beautiful and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a family vacation. The home is in a fabulous location -- close to Tanglewood, Stockbridge, Lenox, and Gt. Barrington. The luxury kitchen was well equipped and the outdoor grill was a perfect size for coming out for 8! Everything in the house is wonderfully organized and labeled -- easy to find whatever you need. Would highly recommend this house.

What a great house! Kids learned to ski in one month too!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a month this winter so our children would have the opportunity to ski several consecutive weekends at Butternut which was about 12 minutes away. The experience was seamless and the house was fantastic. We live in NYC and found the drive to be very manageable. The owner was extremely organized, helpful and responsive. The kitchen is extremely well stocked for a rental house. This is something that I really appreciated. We have rented many homes though VRBO and are often unhappy with the kitchen equipment.

The kitchen table was great for

Large family meals. All the bedrooms were comfortable and nicely laid out. The kids loved the oversized jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom. They would soak and then enjoy a movie in bed in front of the fireplace after a long day on the slopes.

I would absolutely recommend this house to any family looking for a retreat in the Berkshires! The area was very sweet and had many great restaurants, hiking and sight seeing! We had many meals in Great Barrington at the Brew Pub which we highly recommend!

Enjoy! You won't be disappointed.
