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.
Common courtesy and quiet enjoyment of a lovely and serene environment.Pet Policy

My husband Dennis and I are the owners of Santarella Estate and Gardens in Tyringham, MA. Over the past twelve years, Santarella has been a labor of love and the realization of a dream for us. It is such a unique and magical place and must be shared ~ Airbnb is one of the best ways we have found to make it accessible to guests seeking a simple "get-away-from-it-all" or a complete "reality-shift," Santarella is the place to be.
