About Lourdes Font
My name is Lourdes and I am a retired social worker. My husband Bruce and I love the Berkshires and have been coming up with our family for over 30 years. We love the dance, theater, music, hiking and kayaking. When we're not enjoying what the Berkshires has to offer, we enjoy cooking, playing board games, cards and watching movies in our cozy hideaway. Our favorite pastime is laughing, but napping is also very popular. We hope you love our home as much as we do.
Lourdes Font purchased this House in 2015
Why Lourdes Font chose Becket
The water has always been a source of calm and peace for us. We are happy to have found a space that offers privacy and access to a serene water way that has beavers and wildlife where we can swim and boat or just meditate. It is our pleasure to share it with you.

Had another great girls' weekend at this property! The kitchen is fully stocked, clean towels for showering and LOVE the outdoor hot tub on a brisk fall day. Everything you could possibly need for a weekend getaway! Would recommend to others needing a place to stay in the Berkshires.
This renter was a wonderful guest. I would recommend her highly to any HomeAway host. I'm looking forward to having her and her friends become our regular Berkshire Buddies.
Great place and Great Owners!!!
This was our second time back to this fabulous property! Such a great spot on the lake and the owners go out of their way to make sure your stay is the best it can be. Looking forward to the next trip to up to this little gem!!
It's easy to be a "great owner" when our guests are as pleasant and communicative as you. Our home is your home. We look forward to your next visit.
Lourdes and Bruce
Four of us spent a girls' weekend two weekends ago at this ultra comfortable retreat! Beautiful, picturesque and so quiet and peaceful. It was so crazy hot that we ended up cancelling a lot of our plans and staying put to enjoy all this place has to offer. We really appreciated that the bedrooms were air-conditioned. We made good use of canoe, kayak and paddle boat. I'm sure it's most probably busier during the summer but we never saw a soul. The house has everything one would need and then some. And so beautifully decorated! Lourdes was very responsive and we would all go back in a minute!
Just the kind of response we're hoping to receive and Colette didn't even mention the hot tub and sauna! Colette and her crew were wonderful guests and we hope they come to visit us again.
Well stocked and beautiful home on the lake
We loved our stay in this home in Becket. The house was clean, well stocked and beautifully decorated. We spent most of our time on the lovely deck and on the water in the boats. The hot tub was perfect as well! The hosts provided everything we needed and more. We had a truly wonderful time and would love to return. My only constructive feedback would be that the beds in the upstairs bedroom with the two beds in it were pretty uncomfortable. The other beds were great but you may want to consider replacing those two. Otherwise everything was great!
We always appreciate constructive feedback. We do our best to make the home as comfortable as possible. We are new owners and have replaced a number of big items (new hot tub, gazebo and state of the art TV), the grill (although perfectly functional) will be new in August. We appreciate your feedback and will put the mattresses on the list.
Even better than represented!!!
First of all, Lourdes was delightful and extremely efficient to deal with ... she has put a lot of thought into making her home comfortable and charming; the lamps made from musical instruments are amazing ... we never grew tired of gazing out on the water whether from the hot tub, the decks, or the dining room ... the outdoor shower was an unexpected plus! ... the home is very spacious which adds to the comfort ... we were pleasantly surprised that the pond was large enough to get in a couple of wonder kayaking sessions, and the Bass and Pickerel made for some really, really great fishing; I even landed a 5 / 6 pound Bass right off the dock ... thanks Lourdes ... Ray
Ray was just the type of guest we were fortunate enough to have enjoy our home. I am thrilled that that he and his guests had such a great time and enjoyed the fishing. Ray and his guests treated our home as if it was theirs. I would love for them to return. Ray, that hot tub is great in the Winter.
Second time around:)
we are 3 couples who visit our children in summer-camp in the Berkshires. this was our second stay in this spacious home and we love it! the accommodations are excellent! the weather was beautiful and we used the canoe to take a ride around the lake. the home is in close proximity to waterfalls, hiking, the outlets, tanglewood and more. we will definitely be making this part of our yearly tradition. Lourdes, the host, will return texts immediately if there are any questions! we LOVE the Berkshires!
It's a joy to have our families return. They were great guests. We look forward to being a regular part of their summer experience (at least until the kids are finished with summer camp).
