Wisteria Cottage has it all!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this cottage! We visit the Berkshires each summer for a weekend getaway - and so happy that we found this gem on Home Away. Wisteria Cottage offers great accomodations - starting with the lovely porch to enjoy your morning coffee, to a stocked kitchen with all of the staples, and ending with the peaceful sound of the stream that runs right behind the house.

The location was great for us as we were really on the go from the time of our arrival, so having Jacob's Ladder closeby to hop on and off was great. Wisteria Cottage gave us a a great sense of privacy without being in total seclusion.

Fran is a wonderful host! We were greeted with a very thoughtful gift basket and card welcoming us to the cabin. Fran was very helpful with providing us information on the area that came in handy - she even looked up and sent me info on local bakeries knowing it was my boyfriend's birthday. She puts alot of thought into the final touches around the cabin that you truly feel like you are staying at a relatives and/or friend's place.

I highly recommend this cabin and look forward to visiting again next year!

Thank you Fran!

Owner's Response: J and K , I was delighted to have you come up to Wisteria for this special occasion. Your wonderful comments are deeply appreciated . You certainly touched on some highlights of your trip .It's always fun to hear about the variety of activities that you were able to find nearby. Having guests like you at the cabin is so satisfying for me and I especially want to thank you for the care you took in your departure. I could barely tell that you were there.

Thank you both for pointing out your favorite features . I can't wait to have you come back again some other time. I keep the cabin open all year round so there is always a reason to enjoy the seasonal changes.

Wonderful stay at the Wisteria!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I "treated" ourselves to this charming cabin in lieu of gifts this past Christmas. I have to say that our stay at the Wisteria was one of the best presents we ever gave to each other (married 33 years)! Fran left us a nice welcome bag which was very thoughtful. I love to cook and was pleasantly surprised to learn that the kitchen was so fully stocked! I felt like I knew where everything was in the cabinets before I even opened them. The wood stove worked great for both warmth and atmosphere as it was very cold the day we arrived. We went to Canterbury Farms like Fran suggested and used our snow shoes on their trails for over 3 hours..it was quiet, beautiful, and snowing! We really did not want to leave Wisteria and wanted to stay an extra night! We were instantly relaxed and felt Fran took care of everything possible. I highly recommend a stay at Wisteria...if I could click my heels and whisper "There's no place like home" I would want to be taken back to Wisteria.

Owner's Response: What better gift can a couple share than to spend time together doing things they love and making more memories? Thanks so much for this great review and some insight into what renters can expect when they arrive in Becket. From the first moment you wrote, I sensed that you would be a good fit for Wisteria. So glad to hear that you were able to snowshoe and enjoy a magical winter wonderland--with falling snow, no less. I love that you were able to kick back and enjoy the fire on such a brisk day. You are always welcome to your" home away from home." I can't wait to have you come back.

Quaint haven

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this wonderful cabin over Columbus Day weekend. Fran was a perfect and attentive host! She answered all my questions promptly, gave a lot of information about the area and the house, and was very accommodating with our departure date needs. When we arrived we felt immediately at peace. The cabin is located off a quiet and private road nestled amongst trees. It's charmingly decorated and every amenity is provided. Fran left us a very thoughtful welcome package so we began our stay with delicious maple cookies! The area's fall foliage was absolutely stunning! We took time to go hiking, explore the neighboring towns, and ended each night by sitting around the wood stove. Leaving Becket was not easy as we had absolutely melted into this quaint haven. We look forward to coming back and hopefully for a longer stay!

Owner's Response: A and O, I was speechless when I walked into the cabin and saw your wonderful note and the care you took with everything. I am always delighted to hear that Wisteria captured your soul . From the very first contact you made with me, I knew it was a good fit and that you would definitely be welcomed back. Thanks so much for making it easy for me to have you as my guests. It's wonderful that you got to enjoy such beautiful foliage and to relax at the end of busy days. I just ordered more firewood so I am all set for the cozy winter nights ahead. I do keep the cabin open all year round and each season brings new surprises. Thanks again.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5
Super cute cabin in a very quaint neighborhood. This trip offered exactly what we were looking for -- peace and relaxation. We loved having our own kitchen to be able to prepare meals for ourselves, and it is an extremely well stocked kitchen! Fran offered tons of great tips for activities in the area, so we were able to balance some fun and exploration with our relaxing. The cabin is very well stocked and equipped to make your trip seamless and to help you feel at home.

Book it!

  • 5 of 5
This is the cottage of your dreams, fulfilling all it says it will and much more. The location is idyllic, quiet, private and beautiful. You will want for nothing at the cottage as Fran has provided for everything you need - she has really thought of everything. I so appreciated what a terrific and helpful hostess she was and it was a pleasure to deal with her prior to the sale. The level of comfort was huge. You can do lots of things or nothing at all. It's a wonderful spot. Don't think twice, just book it! You will not be sorry.
