Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband Tim, my brother-in law Dan and myself (along with the help of all the family & many friends) built this house ourselves in 2005-2006. We did this in our 'spare time'. Needless to say, we did not get much rest for that year!

Why the Owner Chose Becket:
It is situated on a beautiful double lot with 190 ft of lakefront. It is quiet & peaceful....the perfect place to get away & relax. We take great pride in it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is a custom built home with large rooms. It was built with the lay of the land in mind so there are no decks; you just walk right out to the backyard. There are only 3 stairs going up to the second level & 4 to the loft. The view of the lake is spectacular
