The Owner purchased this house in 2003
Quiet, lovely, and surrounded by nature.
Thank you so much for the comfort of your home here in Becket. We really
enjoyed our time here. The forested surroundings are beautiful!
This immaculate, uncluttered, comfortable, spacious and well maintained home is located in a peaceful setting 4 miles from Jacob's Pillow.The kitchen is large and open to the living room and has upscale amenities. We only used one bedroom and it was quite comfortable. The master bath was dated but adequate, spacious and clean. With all curtains open you are surrounded by beautiful greenery and some open lawn. There is easy access to Lenox and Stockbridge. This area is wonderful and we have visited it many summers. The owner was responsive to our questions. There is a binder with information about the house and appliances, and there is area information to reference. There is cell phone coverage and wifi. We hope to return to this home for a longer period.
