About jonathan molk

I live in this home year round and take loving care of it and it's surroundings.

jonathan molk purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

Why jonathan molk chose Lenox

If you like all the summer action but crave privacy at the same time, then this property is for you. Just 5 minutes from Tanglewood, 5 minutes to Bousquet Ski Mountain, and 1 mile to the center of Lenox for shopping, dining and local fresh marketplace. Drive down the long pebble driveway and you are in total peace, quiet & privacy...the best of both worlds!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

What made me fall in love with this home was the drive up to the entrance. It is a hidden oasis at the end of the road.

very nice home in a pleasant and quiet spot

  • 5 of 5

Located near Lenox MA, this home is very nice, clean and well maintained. The location is quiet and the garden makes the outdoor areas -- porch and screen porch really pleasant.

Easy access to Lenox and route 7 .

There were 6 in our group including a three month old and we were all comfortable and happy.

Perfect luxury home for a Berkshires Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this spectacular home for the 4th of July weekend with our family of 6. The house was even more gorgeous than pictured! This home truly exemplifies the aesthetic of the Berkshires. It has a rustic chic farmhouse feel, with a sense of a bygone era paired with tranquility and natural beauty.

The home has a gorgeous outdoor area, with an arbored sitting area near a firepit, a sitting area in the screened patio, and a sitting area on the front open porch. It was lovely to sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous gardens of the home, and listen to the birds chirping in the nearby woods. The kitchen was incredible, with every cooking item you could possibly need. Since we were arriving very late, we arranged for grocery delivery, which Jonathan was kind enough to receive for us. We enjoyed the Sonos speaker system throughout the home, and listened to James Taylor songs before we headed over to Tanglewood to watch him in person! Bedrooms were beautifully decorated and beds were very comfortable.

The location is so close to Lenox, but also not far from Great Barrington, Pittsfield, Stockbridge, and many other places to visit. On several mornings, we went for a hike in Kennedy Park, which is just up the road. The park has tons of hiking trails in shaded quiet woods--so beautiful. We went up to Pittsfield and rented a pontoon boat on Pontoosuc Lake (went swimming in the lake since it was so warm!), went to Williamstown for a show, went to the fab farmer's market in Great Barrington and then ate Baba Louie's sourdough pizza and delicious SoCo ice cream, and also just enjoyed hanging in the house together as a family and playing games. The James Taylor concert at Tanglewood was amazing, and we bought delicious picnic food at Guido's in Pittsfield, which was only 10 min away. Basically, the perfect house in the perfect location for a perfect Berkshires getaway!! Jonathan was incredibly communicative and accommodating as a host. We couldn't have asked for more. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday!

Tons of space in a well designed country home!

  • 5 of 5

We had four people staying here and it was BEYOND cold outside (5 degrees Farenheit). The house was warm and inviting and had a lovely fireplace and comfortable living room for us all to sit around the fireside. The kitchen was enormous and a joy to cook in... and the best part, everyone had their own bedroom. Connecting with Jonathan was a piece of cake and there are instructions which explain how everything in the house works as well the best restaurants in the area. It was also awesome that we could bring our dog with us!!!

Lovely setting, well maintained, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family came to the Lenox area for a family reunion. Jonathan was a gracious host and he gave us good recommendations for where to eat and shop in the area. The house is large and has a wonderful kitchen where our family congregated. It was clean and well maintained. Jonathan responded promptly to any questions. The kitchen is well stocked. The setting is lovely. We enjoyed an evening by the fire pit.

I would definitely recommend this to friends or relatives. We especially enjoyed Guido's market (one of Jonathan's recommendations.My husband also enjoyed cycling around the area.

Everything we could have hoped for the 5 of us

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, large home on very attractive, spacious property just a few minutes' drive from the center of Lenox. It is in pristine condition and exceeded our expectations. The bedrooms and bathrooms are nicer than any hotel. The large kitchen is a natural gathering place with a large island with bar stools, and the garden porch is cozy for getting away to read or nap. The outdoor patio has nice seating and an open brick fireplace for chilly evenings. We took advantage of all of these during our 4 night stay and would love to have stayed longer. The owner met us on arrival, was very welcoming, and gave us a thorough orientation. If we return for Tanglewood events in the summer, we will definitely stay here. Can only imagine how pretty it is during the fall foliage.

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

The setting of this home is so serene and lovely. Beautiful outdoor spaces to lounge and relax and listen to the birds in this quiet lush setting. We were in Lenox for my daughter's wedding and the house was a wonderful retreat to host out of town family and friends to gather and relax for the weekend.

The home is spacious and inviting and perfect for entertaining in the gourmet kitchen. The master bedroom is especially spacious with a grand feeling about it. The home is well appointed and maintained. The owner was very flexible and gracious to let us stay a bit longer on check out day as we had so many people to say good bye to without the pressure of having to leave at an early check out time. There are many comfortable places inside and out to relax and visit or have alone space to relax and enjoy. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return with friends next year.
