BERKSHIRES COTTAGE NESTLED IN THE WOODS WITHIN ONE MINUTE OF TRANQUIL LAKE.

Becket Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6 plus pull out couch (8 max)

The cottage is located in the Berkshires on a quiet winding road. Majority of cottages are owner occupied. Therefore you get the privacy & relaxation without the crowds. All the Berkshire attractions are within a scenic drive. Endless activities for the entire family. Something for everyone. The lake is high in minerals which leaves your hair & skin feeling silky smooth. The lake does not show up on tourist maps, so you have private enjoyment.I love waking up in the morning, with my cup of coffee & going around lake in the morning dew. Beaver, Otters, Birds, and Fish greet you along your way. Then take a sunset cruise before BBQ on the deck & gathering around the fire pit.The cottage has electric heat & wood burning fireplace so it can be enjoyed year round. The cottage is fully equipped with all modern conveniences. I can assure you, your entire family will create some wonderful memories here. You will be back again & again. It's convenient, private, a guaranteed Berkshire experience. Jacobs Pillow up the mountain, only 8 minute ride.

Note: Owner holds N.J. State Real Estate License.

About Scott Jeffers

I am originally from Michigan and used to spend time in at our cottage Traverse City area and have nothing but great memories. I purchased cottage for my family to create their own memories.

Scott Jeffers purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Scott Jeffers chose Becket

I fell in love with the Berkshires. The lake is cristal clear and I enjoy sailing, swimming, fishing, Kayaking, and more... There is something very special about the area and no matter what the weather, there is always something to do.

What makes this cottage unique

You are close to all the Berkshires attractions yet you are slightly off the tourest area. Most homes are owner occupied therefore the lake is never crowded. You can truly relax and enjoy the water.

Jacobs Pillow up mountain, only 8 minute ride.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great cottage tucked in the woods with a wooded path to a tranquil lake. Peaceful setting, however, within 20 minutes of Tanglewood and all the Berkshire attractions.

All you need is food and clothing. Cottage is fully equipped. There are two Hobbie style kayaks available for min. rent to enjoy the lake at Sunrise with coffee or Sunset with cocktail.

Grill on the deck, hike in the woods, firepit at night, museums, outlets, restaurants, theatre, outdoor concerts, and so much more. No matter what the weather there is something to do.

Within 20 minutes of Lenox, Stockbridge, Lee, Pittsfield, and Great Barrington which was recently voted as #1 small town get-a-way.

Perfect Lake Cabin Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this place with another family for the holiday weekend and had an excellent time. Scott was attentive, generous and even let us stay longer on Sunday since he had no Monday rentals. The cabin really is equipped with everything you need including little things like soap, TP and a hair dryer. I loved that with no wifi and no TV reception, the kids had a technology-free weekend shooting pool and playing in the lake. The 2 nights we stayed felt like longer because it was such a relaxing locale.

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a place to get away and recharge for the new year, and wanted to bring our dog along. This place was perfect! We headed out there before a significant snowstorm but the cottage was a great place to hunker down for a few days. Scott was a gracious host, and had the place ready for us upon arrival. He went out of his way to ensure we were happy, and stayed in touch through the storm. All was as expected from the listing. I would definitely recommend this cozy getaway.

Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The fall foliage was spectacular! We enjoyed hiking at the quarry which had amazing views, and even walked part of the Appalachian trail. The lake was very beautiful as well. The cabin was clean and very comfortable and Scott was attentive and very flexible. We made good use of the firepit, making smores every night! The grill was a little small, but we managed and if you are a big coffee drinker or you are part of a larger group bring your own coffee maker since the one at the cabin is a bit small. We were able to pitch a tent by the lake for those that wanted to camp outside. Overall we had a wonderful stay, great time with friends, enjoying simple pleasures.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend this property. It's just rustic enough to "unplug" from daily life. Scott was great in recommending activities and getting into the cabin was easy. The place was clean and exactly as advertised. You have everything you need there, you only have to bring yourself and your clothes, it was very convenient and saved a lot of packing room in the car. The other renters and residents on the lake are very nice and easy to get along with, they also made some great recommendations for entertainment and nightlife.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5
Scott, the owner, took the time to come meet us upon arrival and show us around and make personal suggestions to enhance our vacation with age appropriate activities. This was great as it took the guess work out of how to operate appliances and where to find items. Our children loved all his suggested activities which made it an enjoyable vacation for everyone. (cliff jumping at the quarries was a favorite!) It is located in a beautiful area with plenty to do and see. Scott has thought of everything you need to make your stay comfortable. All the neighbors are very pleasant. Our dog had a great time as well. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a memorable family vacation!

What a great spot!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at this cottage. Just a two minute walk through the woods to the lake. The whole area is beautiful. Our dog spent the entire time swimming and had the time of his life. Don't miss out on taking the kayaks around the lake to enjoy the whole area!
