Charming and romantic,' Round' Cottage on the Santarella Estate in the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. Formerly, the cottage was sculptor Henry Hudson Kitson's summer studio on the Santarella Estate. The two-story cottage has a charming bedroom with 35 foot high conical ceiling with canopied bed upstairs with views through massive, multi-paned "mill windows" to the trees and sky and out to the lily pond. The downstairs sitting room looks out on the babbling brook and lovely gardens.
“The Santarella property is truly amazing! As soon as you arrive on the grounds, it feels like you’re walking into a fairy tale. The grounds are truly amazing with gorgeous perennials in bloom and trails throughout the property. Denise and Dennis were welcoming hosts who provided extensive recommendations of restaurants and activities in the area. Communication was extremely prompt and we felt welcome immediately. The Silo Studio is an amazing space and arranged in a way that truly maximizes the space of the unique design. The window seat was my favorite spot where you have a view of the pond and beautiful landscaping. You can watch chipmunks, bunnies and all kinds of beautiful birds enjoying the landscape. This is a beautiful, unique stay that allows you to disconnect from the business of life. Highly recommended!”
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.

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.

“Mike and Laurie's place was fantastic. It was very clean and comfortable. We throughly enjoyed our stay. There was a small winter storm while we were staying here and they kindly cleaned off our vehicle and took care of the driveway. Highly recommended. Thank you.”

“The apartment has one bathroom and a shower, two bedrooms (three beds overall) and couch space. There is a living room with a TV, a nicely sized kitchen space, and a sun room. There are also chairs on the lawn outside near the garden. The location is minutes away from Main Street in Great Barrington and is a short drive away from Stockbridge. Carolyn is a great host. Her apartment is a convenient home base for day of hiking or an afternoon exploring the town. Or you could enjoy a lazy afternoon in, make dinner instead of getting take-out, etc. Don't miss your opportunity to stay here.”
