About Sue Gillis

I am a retired RN who worked at Mount Sinai Hospital for over 40 years and currently live in Manhattan, NY. I rented in Becket many times before buying my dome home.

Sue Gillis purchased this house in 2004

Why Sue Gillis chose Becket

I fell in love with this geodesic dome because of it's uniqueness, openness and the feeling of tranquility it imparts. The multi-cultural environment is uplifting

What makes this house unique

High ceilings,cupola, the surround sound when you sing or play music in the very center of the dome. private setting, open concept,screened in porch, enabled me to garden (which is difficult to do in NYC) Closeness to Jacobs Pillow.

A comfortable, well-equipped house set in serene woods.

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my second stay in this unusual, but comfortable house in my favorite part of the world. Very well-furnished large kitchen and comfortable beds. Quiet, practically no traffic, except for occasional visits by mama bear and her 2 cubs, a doe with her 2 fawns, and a fox. Hope to return next summer !

Great house !

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as promised. Very comfortable, convenient, and welcoming. We enjoyed the screened-in porch and outdoor grill and found the fully equipped kitchen a pleasure Also, the ceiling fans in every room really helped on very hot days. Looking forward to next summer !
