Summary Description:
Wonderful Lakefront house in Scenic Berkshires! This home sits on Robin Hood Lake, the largest lake in the Sherwood Forest area of Becket, MA. The house has 3 bedrooms: A first floor master with a queen sized bed, an upstairs bedroom with two twin size beds, and a second upstairs bedroom with a queen bed. There are 2 full baths, one on each level. Loft has office and studio area.
Relax, Swim, Fish, Hike, & Boat! This rental comes with use of 2 kayaks, 1 canoe, 1 paddle boat and several floats. There is a small sandy “beach” area in front of the dock- perfect for children to dig and play. This yard also has a Hammock, a Picnic Table and Patio Table with Umbrella, and a full size Propane Grill.


The House: The full kitchen has an island with 4 stools, and is fully outfitted with a full size refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, oven and 4 burner electric stove. A propane fueled fireplace heats the house for chilly nights, ceiling fans from the 30' ceiling keep air circulating and there is AC available in each bedroom.

Robin Hood Lake is a peaceful, quiet lake, called a “no wake lake” because no fast boats are allowed. It is very safe for children and swimmers, and ideal for canoes, kayaks, and paddleboats. In addition to the dock, our lakefront is “walk-in” friendly, with a gently sloping sandy bottom, perfect for swim and play. Also, a lovely, cutting garden is yours to enjoy.

The Berkshires: The Berkshires are a noted cultural & arts center. Within minutes of this house… Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival, Tanglewood Music Festival, Shakespeare and Company, multiple summer theaters, Kripalu Yoga Center , Canyon Ranch Spa/Day Spa, Appalachian Trail Hiking area, museums, botanical gardens boutique shopping and more.
