Description

TRULY MAGNIFICENT - Welcome to Brookside Lodge, an enchanting Berkshire estate with a fascinating history. Spanning 73 acres, it started as a YMCA camp in the 1800s and later became Ted Shawn's retreat in the 1930s while he established Jacob's Pillow. Talented dancers hailing from every corner of the globe made this unique estate a cherished summer home and families from NYC and beyond flocked here for the perfect summer escape, embracing an array of activities from hiking, swimming and tennis and enjoying the tranquility of country life. The property has recently had numerous renovations with the goal of becoming a destination spot once more, and great care was taken to blend modern comforts with its timeless charm. A new 11 bedroom septic has been installed, all buildings were painted in 2021, new electrical service and wiring throughout, and much of the demo and framing has already been done. The property consists of the main lodge, the grand lodge, and the iconic Ted Shawn house.
