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
The week my family rented this home was the most relaxing vacation of my adult life!! The lake was gorgeous, clean and refreshing! The weather was perfect ~ literally a heat wave all over the east coast but perfection on Lake Robin Hood! The house was a dream ~ every amenity one would need for a week away. The kitchen was well equipped, the bedrooms and bathroom were super clean and the loft was perfect for four queen sized blow up mattresses to fit and there was a futon too ~ the kids had a blast up there!! The living room and the screened in porch were set up so well to enjoy a little relaxation and TV...which we barely did because the outside was just incredible!! We will definitely go back to this little piece of paradise!!
This is a wonderful vacation spot, a great place to escape Boston's summer heat for a week. The house is very well maintained, everything is very clean, nothing is broken. If you enjoy swimming in the lake, than a big community beach 100 yards down the road is a big plus. The cottage has everything you need to enjoy your stay there, starting from bicycles and kayaks, and ending with internet and access to netflix. Also the owners are very nice and accommodating people. We would definitely recommend this place to other travelers
I rent a lake house on different lakes every summer and this is the first one I wanted to buy! It was clean, open, quiet, and pretty with gorgeous views of the lake. The house was actually stocked with paper goods (usually I have to bring them) and all the supplies needed for most cooking including silver foil and olive oil! The outside porch was so welcoming and the outside sitting area saw a few evening fires in the chiminea and much relaxing during the day. It was great to have the two kayaks available (we have had to rent some in the past). Swimming in the lake is easy, just a few weeds, but clean and refreshing. I expect we will return to this place as it was really a great get-away! Thanks Jennifer and Tim!
This is an excellent home to vacation in. Each morning we awoke to a view of the lake . The kitchen is furnished with all the needs of guests from mugs to dishes to pans for cooking. We ate outdoors often because there were comfortable chairs and tables. Having the wifi available was a added plus because in that area communication is limited. We swam in the lake right from the house although there is a nearby beach. Bike riding is a pleasure. Location is great for music and ballet.
Back for the third year in a row and it just keeps getting better.
Home is beautiful and the lake could not be cooler. House is terrific for family, cookouts, fishing, and relaxing. Very quiet area.
Will be back next year
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
