About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

"I've rented a lot of properties. This is one of my favorites." This review from a recent VRBO traveler sums up the experience you'll have in this charming 1940s cottage, located on a quiet cul-de-sac which is a stone's throw from Lenox center. The home comes fully equipped with queen-sized beds in two bedrooms, two twin beds in the third bedroom, two full bathrooms (one with a bath and shower, the 2nd with a shower), air conditioning, fireplace, sun room, living room, stocked kitchen, dining room, cable & internet, and an ample back yard. It's located less than a mile from Tanglewood, great hiking, Shakespeare & Company, and Lenox's main street. If the wind is blowing in the right direction, you can hear the Boston symphony rehearsing.

Why Robin Getzen chose Lenox

The Berkshires offers a rare combination of striking natural beauty and a cultural richness, with Tanglewood, theatre, and museums. The cottage on Nielsen is also a rare combination of 1940s charm and 21st century amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

We are 5 minutes from Tanglewood and the center of Lenox, and yet we're on a cul-de-sac. There's little to no through traffic, and it's peaceful and quiet.

Wonderful, relaxing stay in a great location for Tanglewood and the Lenox town

  • 5 of 5

We had great time at the Lenox cottage over a long weekend. The location is great - less than 5 minutes to Tanglewood and walking distance to the town center. Robin is very responsive and made us feel at home with a cute welcome basket, eggs, cheese, and wine so we didn't have to run out as soon as we got there. The upstairs worked well for the families with 2 bedrooms and 1 kids bedroom (2 twin beds) and a bathroom (we had 2 couples and 2 young kids and a dog). Downstairs and the outdoor area in the back were great for us to relax and let the kids run! The kitchen and pantry were all stocked with all the basics and seasonings you often forget you need so we were able to cook a lot of the time. We'd definitely come back again!

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at this dear place twice..loved every minute. We spent the holidays here last year and again this year. Cottage is truly delightful...has all the comforts of home and more. Such a relaxing and inviting atmosphere...fabulous fireplace and good books....I would highly recommend it and plan to return. Very private and convenient to little village of Lenox...it's just a short walk and it's a great little town with lots of great shops and fine dining options.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

The Berkshires have always been a magical place for me. I have stayed at several B&Bs and rented several houses over the years. This lovely cottage was the nicest place I have rented and made my vacation perfect. It is in a great location; close to town, but still quite and peaceful. It is perfect for a group of friends. There are 3 lovely bedrooms on the second floor and one bathroom on the first floor and one on the second floor. The sun room is a beautiful place to read and relax in the mornings. The owner, Robin, was incredibly easy to work and communicate with. The house was immaculate. There were even fresh flowers on the table and the refrigerator was stocked with eggs, OJ and coffee for our first breakfast. I plan to be back next year. If you want your little slice of heaven in the Berkshires, this is the place to be.

We did not want to leave

  • 4 of 5

Lenox is a dream location in the summer. Cool temperatures and the best culture you can find on the east coast outside of New York City. Robin's cottage was smack in the middle of all the great things to see in the Berkshires. Walk to Tanglewood, walk to Lenox , a short drive to anywhere else you want to go. On a quiet street, across from Shakespeare and Co. Three bedrooms and TWO baths. It doesn't get any better. Then add to the mix a wonderful host, very stocked kitchen with Starbuck's coffee, what else can I say. All beds were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could need. Bikes to use. Lawn chairs for the lawn at Tanglewood concerts. What a luxury !

The only issues we encountered were:

The lack of air conditioners in two bedrooms.

The furniture could be updated.

The great sunroom got too hot, as there were no windows that could be opened.

Overall this is a rare find in the luxury environs of Lenox. If we come back again we will definitely book this home.

Owner's Response: For those of you concerned about the lack of air conditioning in 2 of the 3 bedrooms, those 2 bedrooms have window fans. This summer surprised us with a couple of scorching days, but up until now, this has not been an issue. As for the sunroom, there is year-round air conditioning which should be kept running during the summer months to keep the room cool.
