|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Two bedrooms, two baths and a fully equipped kitchen make this cozy cottage a wonderful vacation retreat. Across the road from a quiet, no-wake lake in the heart of the Berkshires, this is the perfect home base to take advantage of all the area has to offer. Spend a summer afternoon at the grassy beach just a 5-minute walk down the road and take the provided inflatable boat out on the water. Fire up the gas grill for a tasty dinner at the picnic table on the deck. On a cool night in the fall, start a warm, cheery fire in the wood stove.
The fully updated cottage has two walls of windows and is sunny throughout. One bedroom has bunk beds and a queen-sized pullout couch. The other has a king-size bed, along with a private full bath. There is also a sleeping porch with a small convertible sofa and twin bed – perfect for a warm summer night. The kitchen comes completely stocked with dishes and cookware.
In addition to the comforts of home, the cottage is close to many of the Berkshires' great attractions. It is less than 10 minutes to Jacob's Pillow dance festival (free evening performances at a stunning outdoor stage) and 30 minutes to Tanglewood. The Appalachian Trail is just 15 minutes away. Easy access to the Norman Rockwell Museum, Edith Wharton's 'The Mount', Berkshire Museum, MassMoca and the Clark. And the Lee premium shopping outlets are close by as well.
We have always loved coming to the Berkshires and taking advantage of all they have to offer. Having this house also helps to get away from the bustle of city life and just sloooowww dowwwwnnn.
Dining area spacious, great table and chairs and light from several windows. Cleaning fee too high for results I experienced, especially in bedroom and sitting area. No curtains and shades!!! I believe the bed linens had been
washed(. Except for one pillow case) but they did not look or feel fresh. Maybe this summer cottage should
not be rented in cooler 40 degrees mornings and evenings.
TV for DVD only. After seeing person prepare food in store on property I would not eat there. Does have daily needs.
Town of Lee ...great place. BH
I absolutely loved my stay at Rachel & Sean's cottage in Becket. It's situated in a great location to explore all that The Berkshires has to offer. I went for a much needed getaway, from the hustle & bustle of the city and enjoyed every minute. Located on a small, no wake lake with access to the rich local arts, scene as well as the great outdoors. It was so peaceful and the property well kept with so many windows it's easy to forget when you're inside. Outside I made use of the large gas grill & picnic table on the deck, as well as the beautiful lake which is a five minute walk from the house. Rachel & Sean were extremely responsive to my questions both before & during my stay. I will definitely be back!
A view of Robin Hood Lake would have been enjoyable, unfortunately the amenities, specifically CDs and videos skipped and did function properly. Property was clean, pleasant area, with restaurants, grocery stores within 10 miles.
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is comfortably outfitted. It is in a quiet area, yet is close to hiking trails and other day visits. Town of Lee looks cute and as fun as Williams or Lenox, yet so much closer. We would definitely return here. Price is right, too! Owner was very quick to respond by to my questions.
This rental was perfect for our family. It was clean upon arrival, the layout is very open but definitely easy to find privacy. The beds were comfortable and bedrooms were roomy. The lake is a short walkable distance from the house and we had it to ourselves for the entire week. The water was beautiful. The owner is very helpful and gave us a lot of information for the stay. If you're on the laid back side, definitely check out Dream Away lodge for dinner in Becket. We met some locals hanging out at the fire pit and had a great meal and great time. Thanks for a wonderful week.
The place was impeccably clean, beds were comfortable, nice deck, well-cared for lawn. Communication with the owner was always prompt and easy. The inflatable boat and flotation devices were a nice bonus. The house is quite large and can easily accommodate 8 people. The kitchen was well stacked with all you need for cooking, and the grill was very easy to use. I wish the house had a fire pit - nowhere to make bonfire at night. We did make fire in the wood stove on a rainy day and the house got very hot very quickly.
