Welcome to this compact authentic vintage cabin which is privately situated on a 3/4 acre lot , not far from the main roads and easily accesible to all Berkshire amenities, year round. This cabin is not isolated deep in the woods but the lot is private and the access is amazing. This charming log cabin in a forest/lake association in Becket has an open living room/kitchen combo with vaulted ceilings and skylights. The master bedroom has a handmade log bed, gel fireplace and is set back in the cabin for privacy. There is also a small den furnished with a flip out foam love seat and an armoire. It would be a great spot to sit and read. The cabin is fully equipped, with a washer and dryer in the basement, accessible from outside. Get away from the city and simplify your life. Sit by the stream that runs on the back of the property. Have BBQs outside and sit by the fire pit at night. There is a long front porch with wicker furniture. The cottage is heated with a soapstone wood stove and electric baseboard heat. It is near all area cultural events, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Tanglewood, Lee, Lenox, Stockbridge, skiing, Pittsfield museums and restaurants, non motorized boating, swimming, state parks, theater, hiking
The cabin is cooled by ceiling fans, vented skylights and windows. There is no air conditioning.
MEDITATE, WRITE, SLEEP, DANCE, READ, SIP TEA: How often have you thought about getting away to a quiet spot in the country to rejuvenate your senses and your psyche? This is the ideal spot for dreamers, artists, writers, dancers, knitters, lovers,cooks and anyone who has a desire to just reconnect with themselves. Replenish your soul and let Wisteria Cottage work its magic on you.
Fran was super friendly from the beginning and very precise on directions and expectations for the cottage. This met our needs for a quiet weekend away without the kids. The heat worked well and we actually stayed on the pullout couch to be close to the wood stove. For dinner we drove to Lenox and it was a short drive. I would recommend this for anyone looking to get away for peace and quiet.
This is our 4th trip here, and as always we had a wonderful time. The cabin was perfect, cozy and warm. We have been in the winter before, but there is a lot of snow this year, and the cabin looked so inviting, nestled in the snow. Even though it was 5 below zero outside, the wood stove kept us so warm we had to open a window for a little while. Fran was wonderful, as usual, and everything was ready and waiting for us. I have already booked again for next year and am considering another visit this fall. Book this cabin - you will not be disappointed!
We had a last minute cancelation and Fran was more than accommodating. We found the place to be better than expected, cozy, stocked for all our needs, and centrally located to enjoying all of the Berkshires. Easy in and and out to anywhere. Highly recommended
Hubby and I celebrated our anniversary at Wisteria and had a great stay! The cabin is well stocked, Fran has thought of everything! Very cozy relaxing by the fire in the wood burning stove every night. Can't beat the location, close to many attractions and restaurants, but far enough away that it is peaceful and relaxing. We are already planning our next stay. Thanks for sharing this wonderful cottage!
My wife and I decided to stay at this cabin to get away from it all for our 10 year anniversary. The owner (Fran) was very prompt and helpful setting up our wonderful romantic weekend. She provided so much detailed information of the area and attractions as well as what is provided and what we would need to bring.
We pulled up Friday afternoon to the beautiful cabin and my wife was so happy, this place is beautiful!!! We walked around outside first before we went inside and discovered the beautiful little brook running thru the back yard. When we entered the cabin we found a very nice note from Fran and a very thoughtful gift. The cabin is very clean and cozy. Everything you need and more is there. Fran goes above and beyond accommodating you with all the necessities. We had plenty of Firewood for those nights we curled up by the fire. There is plenty of shops and fine dining in Lee, MA. only 12 min away. We had the most amazing dinner at the Salmon Run Fish House and the service was incredible. The whole experience was amazing and we left so relaxed and happy that we made the choice to stay here. We recommend this cabin to anyone that wants to have a romantic get away or just a quite relaxing time.
Thank you so much Fran,

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!
