Does anyone know of so-called 'home stays' in the TANGLEWOOD area?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I plan to go on a sentimental journey this summer and plan to attend a concert at Tanglewood in Lenox MA, like we did on our first date, 35 years ago. There is, however, nothing sentimental about today's hotel/ motel prices in the area anymore we discovered. Nothing under $250-$300 a night, that is if we are lucky because most of the hotels are already booked solid.
Back in 1978 we decided to go on the spur of the moment and found a very comfortable room with someone who rented a few rooms during the Tanglewood season. I wonder if anyone knows if these private initiatives perhaps still exist. I'll try to find out from the Lenox tourist office but thought I'd ask the Fodorites first.

We also looked at self catering houses but most of them are for larger groups and those prices are truly staggering. We tried via VRBO; does anyone have an alternative suggestion?
