Becket cabin description

Remember the simple pleasures of a country, lakeside vacation where you can spend the day swimming or boating, exploring new towns and attractions, or just spending a lazy afternoon reading on the screened-in porch? Get back to those simple pleasures in our cabin, which is located in a beautiful, quiet country setting far from the chaos of modern life in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains. The cabin is just a five minute walk to a lake where you can swim, fish or canoe (canoe and life jackets provided). Or spend the day exploring the many surrounding towns with antiques, restaurants and shopping galore. Other activities nearby include: hiking, horseback riding, Tanglewood, children's arts programming, The Mount (Edith Wharton's home), Arrowhead (Herman Melville's home) Jacob's Pillow Dance, outlet shopping, summer stock theater, Shakespeare and Company, Berkshire Museum, Clark Museum of Art, Eric Carle Museum, Heartwood School and Becket Arts Center among many, many others. Now offering high speed internet and satellite TV.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: I am a lawyer living near Boston with my husband and three children, but I grew up in Woodstock, New York.

                  Why the Owner Chose Becket:
                  Living and working in the city, I missed the country and thought the best way to teach my kids to care for the earth was to make sure they had a place where they could actually see and appreciate the natural world, and where we could all get away from the madness of the electronic world.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  This cabin is an incredibly restful place. From the breeze on the screened porch to the unbelievable stars and the air at night, to the simplicity of its furnishings, it is just the place to get away from it all and remember who you are.
