Drive down our private road to find an adorable and spacious cottage, nestled on four secluded wooded acres, with every modern amenity including central air conditioning, Internet TV and WIFI. Stay plugged in or disconnect and enjoy the faint whooshing sound of the Housatonic River and the exquisite natural beauty around our property and in the Berkshires. Our home has three bedrooms and a den with a pull-out couch. The three bedrooms are on the second floor comprised of a spacious master bedroom suite with attached, walk-out deck, private bathroom and a large walk-in closet that is big enough for a pack-in-play for the little one. The two other bedrooms have full beds and ample closet space and a full bath for those bedrooms to share. There is also a half bath on the main level. All of the mattresses are new and extremely high quality. On the first floor there is a den with a full-sized pull out couch which doubles as a peaceful reading room or a playroom for the kids. If you like to cook, enjoy the spacious open concept kitchen. There is a lovely screened-in porch for al fresco dining and a covered porch to relax and unwind.

About Alison Baker & Robert Podgursky
We are a fun-loving family of 6 (two parents, two kids, a pug an a gecko) who share an absolute love of the Berkshires, "our happy place". Nothing beats hanging out under a shady tree while the kids frolic in the lake or a hike that ends in a waterfall. We live full- time in Maplewood, NJ, where we have access to NYC for our jobs. We warmly welcome adults (and dogs) of any ethnicity, color, religion and sexual orientation.

Why Alison Baker & Robert Podgursky chose Stockbridge
It was love at first sight. It's such a cute home! It has the perfect balance of privacy and comfort while being a quick drive to amazing restaurants and all the Berkshires have to offer. My kids love the large backyard.
What makes this House unique
Location and modern amenities such as central air, which is wonderful on hot days. This house is suitable for a "working vacation" because of the excellent Wifi but it is also an ideal place for unwinding and discovering the Berkshires. The house is very kid-friendly and dogs are considered.

This house is amazing! It's close to everything you'd want to do in the Berkshires.... if you can find a way to want to leave it for a moment. It is SUPER comfortable and cozy. We stayed here with 6 adults and one toddler. We loved cooking in the kitchen, having family dinners in the dining room, sitting by the fire, and walking in the backyard which is huge. The beds are incredibly comfortable. The master bedroom is a dream. Everything was clean and there wasn't one thing we needed that the house didn't have. We can't wait to return! Highly recommend to anyone winter, spring, summer or fall!
Charming, quiet, peaceful get away
We loved our stay in this wonderful vacation home. It was meticulously maintained and exceptionally comfy. It was nicely decorated without being cluttered. The kitchen had all the cookware you might need, nice stemware (important to us), and quality appliances. The house is located minutes from MANY of the best hiking trails. It's off a quiet road, and totally private. There's a gorgeous porch and long back yard, which we, unfortunately, didn't get to use since the temperatures didn't get out of the 50's while we were there. The owners were very responsive and very helpful in making our stay exceptional. They gave us great recommendations and advice. We were 2 couples and it was the perfect choice for us.
The property was great. We loved that it had the option of the fireplace and the fire pit outside. The fire pit outside was a favorite of ours! Alison provided so many things for us and was very accommodating. Things were clean and we enjoyed our stay!

Open, private, and perfect location
Valentine Lane is a short few minutes' drive to Stockbridge. The house is off the road quite a bit on a sunny secluded lot. There's a lovely back porch looking over the large back lawn, which is surrounded by trees. There's a nice 45-minute loop walk from the house along country roads, past the golf course, the Housatonic River, and many interesting homes, from classic estates to rustic chic. The house is well appointed and very comfortable. Alison was responsive and helpful when setting up our stay.
May was the perfect time to visit - the leaves and flowers were just coming out and the weather was perfect - no too cold and not too hot.
Sweet, Charming, Clean & Fun!
This house is just lovely. Perfectly located just ten minutes from...so much but secluded and private. Every room in the house is simply and beautifully furnished. We stayed during a bit of a cold snap but we were cozy the whole time with great heating and a great fire. We had 4 kids with us ( ages 9,6, 2 and 1) and two adults. I felt very comfortable from a safety perspective and the kids had a great time. The house is completely updated with great bathrooms and a wonderful kitchen. The property is surrounded by beautiful trees and has great light. It snowed 6 inches while we were there and we were thrilled when the prearranged ( by the owners) snow plow showed up to dig out the driveway. The beds were super comfortable and the sheets and towels were fantastic. There were plenty of extra pillows and blankets all over the house. We used the washer and dryer ( also seem brand new) and loved the convenient entrance to the house from the garage. We enjoyed Ski butternut and Baba Louies in great Barrington during our visit -- both were only 10 minutes away. I communicated with Alison the owner a few times before the visit and once during and she was super quick to respond and super helpful. I highly recommend this home and we will be sure to visit again during the summer. The property must be stunning during the summer months!
