There are two bedrooms on the main floor in addition to an open kitchen, living room, bathroom and dining room. A very large deck surrounded by the woods and a closed in porch are also on this main level.
In the summer because of the high demand there is a one week minimum.

Activities & Area: Activities: Berkshire year-round wooded retreat is near all cultural and sports attractions such as Jacob's Pillow, Tanglewood, The Shakespeare Theater, and the Berkshire Theater. There are several ski areas, including snowboard parks within 15 min. to an hour's drive. Center Lake is a 5 minute drive. Hiking available at October Mountain, Monument Mountain and Bearstown State Park.
Area: The town of Lee, (including famous outlets), Lenox, Stockbridge, W. Stockbridge and Great Barrington are between 15-25 minutes from this secluded site. Williamstown is about a 45 minute ride but well worth the trip to visit the Clark and contemporary Museums.
We had a great reunion weekend with 9 adults and 10 young kids in this house. We may have maxed out the capacity of this house, but it worked well. House was clean and open and the woods are beautiful and quiet (except for our children!)
I was lucky enough to be able to rent this house for a week with my extended family. This house fit comfortably all 10 of us, and there was so much to do in this area -- hikes, farmers market, & museums. Not to mention that the fall foliage was beautiful! The owner was very accommodating and responsive, as well as was very helpful with finding activities. The listing is described accurately, although even more beautiful in person. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation in the Berkshires!
Very lovely home with all the comforts of home. If you are looking for a nice escape from the city or just your day to day life at home this is a fantastic place to visit. Becket is right by Jacob's pillow and only 20-30 minute drive to Lee, Stockbridge, Great Barrington or Lenox. This home has lots of space and beds we were nicely spread out. The owner is responsive and we had nothing to complain about!
A very nice, quiet retreat in the woods. Large space good for big crowds. A bit of a drive to major towns, but close to lake, Jacob's Pillow, and hiking. About 30 minutes to Butternut skiing. A wonderful place to relax and gather with friends and family! Owner is responsive and has a caretaker in the area, would recommend.
Nice large house with an open plan that can accommodate many people which is just what we were looking for. The kitchen has two coffee makers (we used both), but no other small appliances and very little in the way of cooking utensils. There were no pot holders, and it is not very user friendly for people who want to cook. I cleaned one of the drawers myself and ignored the greasy articles (which I couldn't identify) on top of the oven. There was 12 inches of snow when we arrived, and we could not find a shovel. Tried to use the fireplace, but clearly it had not been used in a long time. There is a trash compactor which was filthy, and we did not use it as there were no instructions or indication of whether or not it was usable. The "sun porch" is unheated, so we used it as a "refrigerator room" for food and drinks. The bathrooms were nice and clean. There was no heat on at all in the house when we arrived, and no written instructions for garbage and recyclables.
The owner seemed confused about details each time I contacted her, and the person who cleans the home was not even aware we were coming until I called her.
This is a very secluded house in a quiet wooded neighborhood, which would have been delightful if there had not been so much snow. This would be a good choice for a summer rental - but bring your own kitchen utensils and equipment!
This large, very comfortable home was exactly as described in the listing. The setting is secluded, quiet, and beautiful, and the home is immaculate. The open, airy layout with many windows lets the surrounding forest become part of the home's environment, making for a peaceful experience close to nature.
The owner provided excellent service, including recommendations for nearby attractions and restaurants.
I would definitely return to this property and will highly recommend it to friends.
