About the property

5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom wooded property with valley views

Take a peek at our mountain retreat! With a 1.5 mile walk to town and the same distance to the main gate at Tanglewood, the location is ideal. Chic furnishings, eclectic artwork and modern amenities make this house the perfect spot to unwind in the Berkshires. Tucked away among towering pine trees, our original log cabin home with detailed woodwork has an alpine feel. On our 5 acres of protected woods, you will find a trailhead allowing you to hike straight into Kennedy Park. Your kids will love discovering the little brook that winds through the property. Be sure to bring your racquets for a game of tennis on our har-tru court!


- For 2018, we require a 3 night minimum during July and August.

- This house is pet free, there are absolutely NO exceptions to the pet policy. Even if your companion is small, well behaved or hypoallergenic.

We have carefully updated our 4,400 square foot home, while still maintaining its original log cabin charm. Inside the house you will find five well appointed bedrooms, three beautifully renovated bathrooms and a new powder room on the ground floor. The heart and soul of the house is an expansive living room with a brick fireplace, a TV area, and a grand piano. Step out of the living room, onto a furnished balcony to take in the pristine view of the valley below. Prepare feasts in the fully equipped kitchen, which has just been updated with all new appliances. In the warmer months, you'll be able to dine al fresco on the mahogany deck just off the kitchen.

The 4400 sqft home is comprised of a spacious log cabin built in 1920, and a later addition with kitchen, dining, laundry and more bedrooms. The two ends of the house are connected by a sun-drenched breezeway that lends privacy to the different sleeping areas. The original building features a grand living room furnished with stylish antiques and big, comfortable sofas for lounging. The ground floor also includes a study and a king bedroom with a full bath. The second floor has two spacious bedrooms (one king and three twins respectively) which share a full bath with a claw foot tub and a separate shower.

At the other end of the house, you will find an inviting country kitchen, that opens up to a large dining area. The farm table seats 10 comfortably, and there is an adjoining dining area for children. Above the kitchen are two queen bedrooms, a hall bathroom with shower, and a TV den for the kids (or the kid in you). While we have added a few modern amenities, the house maintains its quirky cottage charm. It's roomy layout affords plenty of private spots to curl up with a book, yet there is ample space for large gatherings.

Choosing to rent a house instead of booking a hotel room allows you the space to get together with friends and family in comfort and privacy. It gives you the flexibility of preparing your own meals on your own timeline. But you shouldn't have to sacrifice the luxury you may enjoy during a hotel stay. At our home, you will find designer bedding, pure cotton bath towels, and brand new mattresses - Berkshire bliss! At the end of your stay, all you need to do is pack your bags and walk out the door. We don't expect you to strip the beds, empty the fridge, or take out the garbage. We offer a worry-free experience right up to the last moment.

With a tranquil setting in a central location, this rambling five-bedroom beauty has everything you need for a quintessential Berkshire escape.

About Caitlin Yadav

We live a few hours away, in Westchester, NY. We've been coming to the Berkshires ever since we first started dating, 14 years ago. And now we are thrilled to have our own place to bring our three children.

Caitlin Yadav purchased this house in 2014

Why Caitlin Yadav chose Lenox

We couldn't resist this place! The house itself has tons of character. The surrounding woods are great for admiring or exploring. And the proximity to both Tanglewood and town could not be beat. As the previous owner explained to us, this is a very special place in the universe. So we feel lucky to have discovered it, and look forward to sharing it with you!

What makes this house unique

We are so grateful for all the feedback that we've received from guests in the past. We think they have a better idea of what unique benefits our home has to offer. While our guests' full reviews are available, here are a few parting thoughts from our guests in their own words:

“On one of our days there, as snow flurries surrounded us all day long, watching out the ceiling to floor windows in the living room area, we felt as if we were in a snow globe.” - Joann B 1/16/18

“Clean, Cozy, Magical, Perfect in every way! The bedrooms are separated to allow for different families to stay in different parts of the house as if they were private suites.” - Sondra 12/31/17

“Caitlin and Vik’s home was nothing short of amazing! Perfect place for a girls weekend to relax, recoup and spread out. They pay attention to EVERY detail. From every utensil in the kitchens, cosmetic towels and supplies in the bathrooms, extra throw blankets to giant cushy couches to hang out and enjoy a cozy fire.”- Lauren D 11/12/17

“We practically lived in the living room laughing, playing games and just enjoying each others company and reminiscing in front of the fireplace.” - Meghan S. 11/6/17

“Even though it was super cold while we were there, the house stayed toasty warm. We would definitely come back again!” - Becky K 3/7/17

“It is an older home that has been beautifully restored / maintained so has the aesthetic of an old home but has all the modern conveniences. It has all kinds of home-like touches that make it really convenient to just settle in and relax: a well-stocked kitchen with every implement you could ask for, tons of books on the shelves, a sound system that you can just plug your phone into, a TV with blue-ray player, a grand piano, a wood-burning fireplace, candles, throw blankets, etc."--Meral C 10/24/17

“The owners were extremely courteous and spared no efforts to make our stay a most pleasant one. Thank you Caitlin!” Luc H. 10/21/16

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your attention to detail, design aesthetic and special touches made our stay at your home an absolute pleasure. Your home was clean and well stocked with the essentials. We were so comfortable and felt well taken care of. It was also a wonderful location--far enough away from the town center to feel perfectly at peace, but close enough that it was easy to drive in and get breakfast/shop around. It was also just 5 minutes away from the MassAudubon wilderness center for some wonderful hiking! Thanks again for everything. We didn't want to leave. What a beautiful home!

Wonderful weekend away

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this house with a group of close friends. It is spacious and comfortable with a really nicely stocked kitchen. And the kids loved the swing in the back and there is lots to do in the area. Great spot for a weekend getaway.

Fall River, MA

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 9 adults who have rented this property before and will do so again in the future. It is a favorite of ours for so many reasons. For one, the owners, Caitlin and Vic, could not possibly be more accommodating..they are wonderful, responding immediately to any questions or concerns we had. The property itself is in a beautiful setting...on one of our days there, as snow flurries surrounded us all day long, watching out the ceiling to floor windows in the living room area, we felt as if we were in a snow globe. In the house itself there is plenty of room for us to either gather together or to find our own space somewhere else in the house. The furniture in all rooms is comfortable and the photos don't even do it justice. The decor is beautiful, each room having its own personality. There is nothing that we could have asked for that is not provided. As in the past, we were so sad to leave, but know that we will plan to return in the future.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to book both the main house and guest house. Everything was perfect, and there was more than enough room for our group of 15. Would definitely stay again.

Clean, Cozy, Magical, Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Under Mountain House was truly spectacular. From the warm, cozy beds to the toasty wood burning fires, we were never cold amidst 0 degree temperatures outside. The grand dining room table was perfect for large family dinners and the over-sized living room accommodated all of us and our many different activities.

The house is clean and modern and rustic at the same time. The bedrooms are separated to allow for different families to stay in different parts of the house as if they were private suites. And the beautiful wooded property was breath taking covered in snow. We absolutely loved Under Mountain House and hope to vacation there again.
