Property description

Enjoy everything the Berkshires has to offer from this beautiful, secluded, newly renovated waterfront cottage set on two acres of forested land. Perfect for families or couples. Swim, fish, or boat from the backyard. (Canoe and lifejackets provided.) Explore the stream that runs through the property. Picnic down by the water, or lounge on the deck. Make a fire in the firepit and eat s'mores. Or just sit down by the lake and listen to the sounds of nature while feeling the warm sun on your face. Very private--just one near neighbor. And if you want more activity, head to cultural activities such as Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Shakespeare & Company; Mass MOCA, the Berkshire Museum, and Norman Rockwell Museum; historic homes such as those of Edith Wharton and Herman Melville; outdoor activities such as kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding, bicycling and hiking; and antiques and outlet shopping. 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I own this house with another couple. All four of us had long careers in education or criminal justice, and two of us are lawyers. We are also parents of both young and grown children, and dog owners.

Why the Owner Chose Sherwood Forest, Becket, MA, USA:
Living in Boston, I missed the country I grew up in, and wanted to be able to recapture the country girl by having a foothold in the Berkshires. For my husband, it was the cultural attractions of the area. And for our kids, it was the lake and the wildlife!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We saw this house in the spring of 2009 and saw its great potential. At the time, the house was a one bedroom 600 square foot cottage, but it was on a beautiful, quiet piece of property with a lake and stream on two acres. We knew it could be paradise, and so we renovated it to add a second floor and take full advantage of the beauty of the land.
