Our spacious 4-Bedroom Colonial-era home is a great place for you or your guests to stay while you are in the Berkshires.

Stunning grounds, friendly staff, beautiful venue! We picked this place for our wedding and couldn't have been happier. Everyone was helpful and tremendously gracious and lovely. The grounds are unlike anything we've ever seen - a fairytale come true! Highly recommended for any event!! :-)

Words cannot express how wonderful our experience was with Denise and Dennis at Santarella. We had our dream wedding and it could have not been more perfect. Denise was always free to answer any of our questions or meet with us. We cannot imagine having our wedding anywhere else.

I do not think there are enough words to express how absolutely wonderful Santarella is. Dennis and Denise are so great, and just want to make sure everything is going well. They were perfect with scheduling meetings and allowing my vendors and I to come when needed to preview the grounds. They were more than accommodating and very hospitable. The estate itself is fantastic and so much like a fairy tale! My wedding party and my guests LOVED being there and had a great time. Thank you, Dennis and Denise, for making my wedding the best ever!
