Bright, cheery, peaceful and cozy studio apartment in a quiet rural town, near the attractions of the Berkshires and close to the many private schools: Hotchkiss, Berkshire and Salisbury.

"Impeccably clean, gorgeous space, outstanding attention to detail. Laurie and Michael’s spot has the feel of staying at a boutique hotel for a better price than you would ever find at one, especially in western CT. " - Ramon C.

Private entry, full bath, queen bed, stove, coffee/tea. Private & peaceful.

The space
This is a large yet cozy studio apartment with a comfy queen-sized bed, a kitchenette (stove, oven, toaster, coffee maker and small fridge), a fully stocked cupboard with tableware, glassware and cutlery, and a renovated bathroom with shower. The apartment is furnished with antiques and a few homemade touches. We just repainted and upgraded the WiFi to a state-of-the-art system. The entrance is private; come and go as you please. The space is very quiet and opens onto a garden and acres of woods, ready for exploring. This is a convenient, affordable option when visiting the many Berkshires attractions like skiing, hiking, biking or cultural centers like Tanglewood, Lime Rock, Shakespeare & Co, or visiting one of the many nearby boarding schools: Hotchkiss, Salisbury, Berkshire, IMS.

PLEASE NOTE: if you would like to use the air mattress (the 2nd bed), please make your reservation as a party of three.

Guest access
The apartment has a private stairway entrance at the back. You do not have to enter the main house to access the space; come and go as you wish! We welcome you to share our beautiful back yard and gardens. We offer off-street parking in our driveway.

Other things to note
We like to keep things simple: there is excellent Wi-Fi, but no TV. We find many of our guests like it that way! The space is set up for light cooking - think breakfast - with a small skillet, toaster and coffee/tea makings. If you would like to use other kitchen equipment, please tell us in advance.

The house is in a quiet New England town, close to loads of outdoor activities and culture. The ski areas of Butternut, Mohawk and Catamount are nearby. The local towns don't get much more quaint: Salisbury, Great Barrington and Stockbridge. For culture there's the Norman Rockwell Museum, Berkshire Botanical Gardens, Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Shakepeare & Co., and Berkshire Theater Festival. There is great year-round hiking and three-season biking nearby. It's within 15 minutes of the four major private schools in the area. There are two gas stations, quaint diners and a large grocery store within two blocks of the apartment.

We have a whole list of recommendations for eating and recreation upon your arrival.
