Overview

About the property

Former B&B With Five Bedrooms And Five Bathrooms, Comfortably Accommodates 12.

Welcome to the Victorian Manor in the historic town of Lee, know as the "Gateway to the Berkshires." Many features in our five bedroom, five bathroom house have been restored to its original period details. Enjoy the timeless charm of a house that is just a five minute walk to town and a short driving distance to many of the Berkshire's finest attractions. Ideal for family reunions or multiple families/couples.

Take a short stroll down the road and you are surrounded by some of the Berkshire's finest restaurants. Less than a 10 minute drive away in Lenox and Stockbridge are many other top rated restaurants.

For canoeing and kayaking, the Housatonic River is a short walk away, and we are only a block from the Greenock Country Club, open to the public for golf and tennis.

Other conveniences are right at your door step as well. In town, you can hop on the Lee Trolley, which runs for free to the Outlets and Stockbridge from Memorial Day until Labor Day. The Price Chopper Supermarket, located on the closest corner heading into town, is open from 7 am until Midnight every day of the week.

Our house is located two and a half hours from New York City and two hours from Boston, and only five minutes off the Mass Turnpike.

Some of the most popular places to visit in the Berkshires are just a short drive away!

About Jim Harter and Anneke Leffel

We started coming to the Berkshires a few years ago and just fell in love the area. We lovingly restored this home and filled it with our collection of antiques. We are looking forward to sharing this with you.

Jim Harter and Anneke Leffel purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

As you walk into the Victorian Manor, built back in 1876, you are reminded of its history right away. The beautiful front porch features marble steps that came from area's quarries started in the late 1800's by one of the original owners of this house, the Deely family. The Lee quarries provided marble for many of the turn-of-the century estates that are now scattered throughout the Berkshires, as well as some of the monuments in Washington DC.

In our recent renovation, special consideration was given to restoring the house to its original form, as well as furnishing it with fixtures and antiques matching the time period. Most of the home's original wood floors have been restored, as well as the original doors and hardware. Enjoy the charm of the parlor room, with its bay window and adjoining library, with a very special antique Quarter Sawn Oak Secretary.

Modern conveniences can be appreciated in our renovated kitchen, with Carrara Marble countertops and large stainless steel stove. Cook to your heart's content, while friends and family sit around the ample butcher block island.

The upstairs bathrooms feature with subway and hexagon tiles, designed to match the period of the house. One special bathroom even has a pedestal sink from 1899! All bedrooms have their own bathrooms.

Comfortable large house full of character

  • 5 of 5

I loved this property and the owners are super responsive. The first night the heat kept coming on (user error!) and the radiators are noisy. The owners solved our problem and the next night was quiet! Great open kitchen and dining plan for socializing with friends. We were 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 4 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. All the amenities. Great location for a ski weekend at Butternut. We'll be back if they'll have us.

Great Location for a Berkshire Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Great location for a concert we attended at Tanglewood. The house had everything we needed and comfortably fit us all. We enjoyed the patio and fire pit and the fenced in area was ideal for the dog. We would definitely return to this house :)

Lovely home with room for all!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is brimming with character and charm! The rooms are comfortable and amenities modernized without taking away from the home's original character. The owners were extremely responsive to any questions or requests we had and although we spent most of our time at the house, the town of Lee is quaint and a very short walk from the house. We definitely hope to return in the near future!

Great Home for a Group

  • 4 of 5

We were 3 families - 9 people - and were really comfortable here. We chose this home for its 5 bedroom/5 bath layout, which worked out really great for us. The dining, living and TV areas gave us places to separate out and have quiet time, while the dining room table was large enough to accommodate all of us for games at night.

Jim and Anneke were very responsive to all of our inquiries.
