There is a large flat screen TV with satellite & DVD player plus a fireplace & dining table in this room. The 2 bedrooms each have a queen size bed. The kitchen is fully equipped. The large loft has a futon & 2 air mattresses.Washer & dryer included. There is an finished screened-in porch/3 season room & attached garage. Outside,there is a gas grill,chairs,portable fire pit, 20 ft.dock, a beautiful lake & wonderful fresh air!
Property Location: The cottage is located in The Sherwood Forest Private Community which is off of Rt 20 in Becket,MA. There are 5 lakes within this community and many miles of country roads. There is even a General Store where you can get GREAT, inexpensive breakfasts and lunches or perhaps pick up an item that you didn't bring with you!
Overall, 'The Forest' is a safe, relaxed, eclectic and friendly environment.
My husband Tim, my brother-in law Dan and myself (along with the help of all the family & many friends) built this house ourselves in 2005-2006. We did this in our 'spare time'. Needless to say, we did not get much rest for that year!
Jennifer purchased this cottage in 2006
It is situated on a beautiful double lot with 190 ft of lakefront. It is quiet & peaceful....the perfect place to get away & relax. We take great pride in it.
It is a custom built home with large rooms. It was built with the lay of the land in mind so there are no decks; you just walk right out to the backyard. There are only 3 stairs going up to the second level & 4 to the loft. The view of the lake is spectacular
We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit. The home is lovely and well provisioned for our stay. So much to do because of the water crafts and the nearby beach. The fish were jumping.
Very quiet, relaxing and a beautiful setting.
Can not wait for next year
Thank you Jennifer and Tim, your home is just as you described only better ! the lake is so peaceful especially during the week, I really enjoyed using the kayak and sitting on the dock. Everything was clean and comfortable and can't wait to go back.
Definitely recommend to families , couple or friends. We also enjoyed going to Jacobs Pillow outside evening performance

We have been vacationing in the Berkshires for many years and no place has ever been so special. The house is situated on a magnificent lake that provides a beautiful landscape to enjoy with all senses. The swimming, boating, bird watching and catch/release fishing are all right out the door. The amenities in the house make you feel as if you are home without having to bring along those comforts. The owners were a pleasure to work with. We will be returning again!
this is a beautifully decorated,quiet and well appointed vacation home with everything you need for comfort. Patio, screen porch, living room and master bedroom all look out at the lake ,only feet away. Good beds, nice linens, plenty of kitchen dishes and pots and pans. Quiet lake is great for canoing or kayaking. We hope to be back this summer.
Becket is in the heart of the Berkshires, which is a cultural, art and nature-lover's destination.
