Incredible Slice Of History

Incredible slice of Berkshire history. Brookside Lodge is set on 73 acres with 13 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Started out as a YMCA camp in the late 1800's and turned into Ted Shawn's retreat in the 30's while he founded Jacob's Pillow. Dancer's from all over the globe made Brookside Lodge their summer home. Families flocked to Brookside from NYC and beyond for their summer activities. Swimming, tennis, hiking and enjoying the country life. The estate has been restored to it's original grandeur even down to the swimming pool. The property consists of a Main house with 4 beds, 4 baths, The Grand Lodge with 7 beds and 3 baths, The Ted Shawn house with 2 beds, 3 baths and the ''Barn'' which used to be the ''mess hall'' for the camp and restored incredibly. An absolute GEM in the Berkshire foothills.
