UPSCALE COMFORT - 2 B/B; NEW FIREPLACE.;12 Min to XCO SKI; KEYBD; HIKE OUT; AC
We are retired professionals who discovered the Berkshires after our children had grown up in our previous home. The increased traffic and congested/"built-out" community there no longer suited us. So we moved to Becket! Love the small town ambiance/facilities AND access to all kinds of cultural events and offerings in the Berkshires. One of us totally enjoys outdoor activities in all the seasons and the other mostly enjoys playing tennis year round. We both enjoy the many cultural offerings here. The fact that we never lack for visitors is certainly indicative of the popularity of Berkshire living!
Ann purchased this House in 2015

Great stay, great hospitality
Ann and Dave couldn’t have been better hosts. Ann supplied many area resources and great tips for places to enjoy my photography hobby and even helped obtain a beach pass for us for the local town beach prior to our Holiday stay.Their large post and beam home was fully equipped with wonderful high end furnishings (Mission Style) that made our stay most enjoyable.
Berkshire get away
Property was clean and comfortable. Location was very quiet yet close to many areas to explore
Lovely, spacious and comfortable house on a rural, wooded lot. Easy drive to all the sights of the area. So quiet! Ann was very welcoming and responded to our small requests immediately. Definitely recommended.
Perfect for two couples
As beautiful as shown in the pictures. The separation of sleeping quarters- beautiful upstairs BR and sitting room and downstairs BR - provided privacy when needed for two couples. Well-equipped kitchen for cooks, shelves stocked with good things to do in the Berkshires. Town beach nearby, and owner who is a walker and hiker will give you tips on the best walks. Highly recommended!
the perfect getaway
being a 1st timer for VRBO I have to admit I was little nervous. Could this house be as great as it was advertised? Could this really be as easy a process as it was? The answer is a resounding yes! We loved the solitude, the beauty, the nature... and even the weather cooperated! Ann, the owner, was available if needed.. and very gracious.
A beautiful home and a relaxing stay.
This is our second time staying at this gorgeous post and beam home. There will be more. Close to Jacob's pillow and a little bit of a drive to Lee and Stockbridge but a wonderful way to experience the Berkshires. A wonderful attentive host and a great experience.
