Becket house description

Your very own, completely private and secluded, post-and-beam-style, contemporary, ranch bungalow in Berkshire County is nestled on 4 wooded acres of ash, beech, birch, hemlock, and maple trees with fabulous forest views. You are located off a quiet road, beside two babbling brooks and near pristine Yokum Pond and Buckley Dunton Reservoir in October Mountain State Forest.

Kitchen, dining room, and living room all in an open layout.

* Three bedrooms with spacious closets.
* Two-and-one-half bathrooms, including master bath and second full bath with double sink.
* Sunken living room with fireplace, woodstove, and entertainment center.

* Multi-zoned heating.

This bungalow is ideal as a getaway, as a warm home to rest and refuel in front of a fire after snowshoeing or skiing, as a home in which to relax after invigorating outdoor activities, as a retreat setting for contemplation or writing, or as a place to reflect after attending a stimulating Tanglewood concert or dance performance at Jacob’s Pillow or a visit in the surrounding area to other exciting cultural activities.

It's just four hours from Montreal and Burlington; two-and-one-half from New York City and Northern New Jersey; two from Boston, New Haven, and Greenwich; and one from Northampton, Amherst, and Springfield.

                        This immaculate, uncluttered, comfortable, spacious and well maintained home is located in a peaceful setting 4 miles from Jacob's Pillow.The kitchen is large and open to the living room and has upscale amenities. We only used one bedroom and it was quite comfortable. The master bath was dated but adequate, spacious and clean. With all curtains open you are surrounded by beautiful greenery and some open lawn. There is easy access to Lenox and Stockbridge. This area is wonderful and we have visited it many summers. The owner was responsive to our questions. There is a binder with information about the house and appliances, and there is area information to reference. There is cell phone coverage and wifi. We hope to return to this home for a longer period.

                        Owner response: Thank you!

                        Dear Arthur, As former campers and counselors of Camp Watitoh on Route 8, we couldn't believe the great location of this house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return when we next visit Becket. It was a pleasure renting your house, the process was painless and the place exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Emily, Laura, Alix, Laura, and Alena

                        Thanks for the wonderful stay in the Berkshires! What a beautiful area. We enjoyed the house and the Becket Pond.

                        We loved your beautiful house. We went boating on the reservoir nearby and saw many beaver houses and two blue herons. We had wonderful ping pong doubles tournaments. We felt extremely cozy and will definitely be returning for a longer stay in the future... We enjoyed eating several meals on the deck. We used the gas grill for hotdogs and it worked very well. Your close down directions and tips were all very helpful and appreciated. Thanks again. Yours, Daniela and Rafael

                        Our family had a wonderful vacation in Becket! The babbling brook was all dried up but we did get to see 2 porcupines climbing up a tree right off the deck! The bungalow is very comfortable and homey. It is a wonderful place to unwind and visit all that the Berkshires has to offer. We visited many area museums and the men of the family did lots of fishing. Thank you!
