Berkshires Paradise…..Beautiful private large (2500 sq ft) lakefront home on Robin Hood Lake, the largest lake in the Sherwood Forest area of Becket, MA. Great for relaxing, fishing, boating, hiking and having fun. This is truly a slice of heaven.

The house sits on an entire acre of land, providing you with absolute quiet and privacy. This house has 5 bedrooms and three full bathrooms (mast bath wasjust completely renovated).

Easy access to the Norman Rockwell museum, Edith Wharton's 'the mount', Kripalu Yoga Center, Canyon Ranch Spa/Day Spa, Berkshire Museum, MassMoca and the Clark.

Great house on a lovely swimmable lake

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed - even dishwasher soap and an endless supply of shampoo. The many bedrooms made it perfect for my wife and I, my daughter and our husband, and their two kids to each have an individual room, while providing yet another bedroom for guests. There were boats to use (though more paddles are needed) and a lovely sand beach which made for easy entry for even my 17 month old granddaughter.

The one issue is the 20-30 Canadian geese that have made the lake their home. Despite all different kinds of efforts, it was impossible to keep them and their poop off the lawn and beach. The lake itself has heavy plant growth, which didn't bother me much, but my daughter

was sometimes dissuaded from swimming because of it.

Still we had a wonderful time.

Perfect Lakefront getaway

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property on a small quiet lake, no loud motorboats-perfect. The house was immaculate and well stocked with essentials, we have been to rentals where there are no cleaning supplies for midstay cleanup, very necessary when you have small children. We have visited the area before but still found lots of new places to visit, we especially liked the Berkshire Museum, good for adults and kids. We enjoyed the kayaks and canoe and fishing off the dock. The kids loved having the little beach area and lawn to play on. We had no problems but felt Dori and Maya were very welcoming and cared that we had a good time. A vacation home we will surely return to.

Amazing house for large group

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a four day weekend to celebrate New Years with a group of ten of us. The house was perfect could not ask for a more accommodating place to get away from the city and relax with friends. There was more than enough room where ten adults felt spread out and there where extra beds and a futon still empty. The layout of the house is ideal all the bedrooms are upstairs with an extra tv space. The down stairs is a large open space with living room, dining room, and the kitchen. We had a chef come and cook for us for NYE and it was great being able to spread out in one room. Went skiing a few days at Jiminy Peak which is less than an hour drive. Every one already can't wait to return in the summer.

What An Amazing Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a long girls' weekend (there were 10 of us). We LOVE the Berkshires and this house fit our needs perfectly!! First off, Dori is the most gracious hostess you could ask for. She's very quick to respond to ANY questions you may have and gives you a plethora of information regarding the house and the area. The house itself...WOW...is all I can say. It's absolutely gorgeous...spacious...and fully equipped with everything you may need! The living room, dining area, and kitchen all flow beautifully so even if you are in the kitchen cooking, you aren't away from the fun happening in the living room. All the bedrooms are spacious and oh so comfortable. I wanted to steal Dori's king size bed it was SO dreamy!! Plenty of linens and towels. All the bathrooms were BIG. Everything was SUPER clean...and I'm an OCD neat freak!! Our favorite part was the deck area (HUGE) and fire pit...which we spent most of our time. The weather was beautiful for the middle of September so we spent a lot of it outside. We took advantage of the kayaks and scooted around the lake. The area itself is beautiful and quiet. All in all you won't go wrong with renting this home. Both Dori and the house are worth it! We will be going back for another long weekend after the holidays and we can't wait!!!

Family-Centered and Thoughtfully Equipped Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Dori & Maya for opening your gracious home to our family. The house was clean and it appeared to have a fresh coat of paint, new furnishings, and new landscape. There were two infants and three children in our party so the toys and crib were very appreciated. Everyone in our party loved the paddle boat, canoe, and kayak, and there were life preservers available for everyone.

I did not have cell reception in Western MA (T Mobile) so I was grateful that Dori & Maya organized a variety of pamphlets and resources for local attractions. The home is in a convenient location; we visited Mass Moca, Jacob's Pillow, Mt. Greylock, and Hancock Shaker Village.

Dori was very quick to respond to our needs. One day a bear came through and went through our trash, and Dori promised me that he ordered a new trash enclosure and scheduled an additional trash pick-up.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better vacation location. The house was spacious and clean. The location is amazing. Absolutely gorgeous views, plenty of outdoor seating and so much to use already there (such a huge plus with young kids.) The owners were quick to respond and happily answered any questions we had. None of us wanted to leave after a week! The best!
