This sunny 4 BR house has a spacious open living area with high vaulted ceilings, lots of large windows. There are two bedrooms on the main floor in addition to an open kitchen, living room, bathroom and dining room. A very large deck surrounded by the woods and a closed in porch are also on this main level.

Hiking available at October Mountain, Monument Mountain and Bearstown State Park.

Area: The town of Lee, (including famous outlets), Lenox, Stockbridge, W. Stockbridge and Great Barrington are between 15-25 minutes from this secluded site. Williamstown is about a 45 minute ride but well worth the trip to visit the Clark and contemporary Museums.

Great house in the woods. Clean and open.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great reunion weekend with 9 adults and 10 young kids in this house. We may have maxed out the capacity of this house, but it worked well. House was clean and open and the woods are beautiful and quiet (except for our children!)

Nice house

  • 3 of 5

Nice large house with an open plan that can accommodate many people which is just what we were looking for. The kitchen has two coffee makers (we used both), but no other small appliances and very little in the way of cooking utensils. There were no pot holders, and it is not very user friendly for people who want to cook. I cleaned one of the drawers myself and ignored the greasy articles (which I couldn't identify) on top of the oven. There was 12 inches of snow when we arrived, and we could not find a shovel. Tried to use the fireplace, but clearly it had not been used in a long time. There is a trash compactor which was filthy, and we did not use it as there were no instructions or indication of whether or not it was usable. The "sun porch" is unheated, so we used it as a "refrigerator room" for food and drinks. The bathrooms were nice and clean. There was no heat on at all in the house when we arrived, and no written instructions for garbage and recyclables.

The owner seemed confused about details each time I contacted her, and the person who cleans the home was not even aware we were coming until I called her.

This is a very secluded house in a quiet wooded neighborhood, which would have been delightful if there had not been so much snow. This would be a good choice for a summer rental - but bring your own kitchen utensils and equipment!

The Perfect Berkshire Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This large, very comfortable home was exactly as described in the listing. The setting is secluded, quiet, and beautiful, and the home is immaculate. The open, airy layout with many windows lets the surrounding forest become part of the home's environment, making for a peaceful experience close to nature.

The owner provided excellent service, including recommendations for nearby attractions and restaurants.

I would definitely return to this property and will highly recommend it to friends.

Perfect Summer Escape

  • 5 of 5

I spent a weekend in the Berkshires at this lovely home with a bunch of old friends (all males in our early 20s). The home slept 8 of us comfortably - plenty of bedding, linens, towels etc for a large group. The kitchen and living room area is beautiful and spacious - leading out to a wooden deck with Adirondack chairs and a grill. Perfect set up for a guys weekend. The pictures do not even do justice for how lovely of a home this is.

Furthermore, Roberta was extremely helpful and responsive - simplifying the rental process and adding to the calm of the weekend.

I would strongly recommend this rental to anyone considering!

Nice, Clean, comfortable...

  • 5 of 5

Nice big house, we had 12 people in this house, family that came to Becket from three different states for a burial. Owner helped us out on a holiday weekend so we all didn't end up in hotels. Worked out great, will definitely rent again!!!

Absolutely wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Hi,

We just got back from a wonderful vacation to this home in beautiful Becket, MA. The house is located on a quiet road with very little traffic. Woods and trails surround the house.

The house itself was very clean and beautifully appointed. We all loved the gorgeous photography, much of it done by the owner of the home. The main room was large and so bright and inviting. The kitchen was large and stocked with essential items.

There are 4 good sized bedrooms and three baths, one on each floor.

One of our favorite parts of the house was the large den on the lower floor. We had 6 kids that were playing and using that space all weekend. many of them camped out there to sleep like a slumber party.

There is a large porch off of the back of the house and a wonderful sunroom off of e the kitchen.

We visited in winter, so we went walking, sledding and snowshoeing. The roads are so quiet and rural, that you can just walk around for miles without seeing a car. Heaven!

We hope to return to the house again, maybe in the summer this time.

What a gem! You will not be sorry if you rent this place.

Enjoy!
