The Donnelly House listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Circa 1760 built in the Lebanon Valley surrounded by historical venues and Berkshire cultural activities. The house is situated on 24.6 peaceful acres offers splendid views and night skies. Our guests have noted New Lebanon may be referred to as the "....quiet side of the Berkshires....". Come hear the sounds of nature, see the beauty of real country with magnificent vistas.
You will have the entire floor which includes two bedrooms and private bath. The is space to do stretching and yoga. The wide floor boards from old growth forests are unique.
There's lots going on in the Berkshires all year. We have brochures, maps and papers for your perusal as well as availability of wireless internet. ATT works great here, Verizon OK, Sprint not so good. During the week you may purchase a beach pass for Queechy Lake.

Moving from New York City in 1998 I rented this house for years before making the big leap. I love the quiet and beauty of my surroundings. I am computer person, having taught the staff at Carnegie Hall and Goldman Sachs. Enjoying good local healthy foods is of great interest to me, I love to cook and am good at it. Having lived in Europe refined my taste for a good wine with my meal.
Please tell me your interests, so I may help to make your stay restful, interesting and enjoyable. Biscuit the very mellow yellow lab is happy to have guests and loves a tummy rub.
