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 Sherwood Forest, Becket, MA, USA:
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.
