Die Unterkunft
Well-equipped house perfect for families, retirees or working folks looking for a place to stay while on temporary assignment or escape from city. Basic wifi, big-screen TV, easy access to Rte. 20 - never get snowed in! Master bedroom upstairs has a king bed and walk-in closet. Second bedroom has a bunk bed with two twin mattresses, and a daybed with trundle underneath. The trundle can be pulled out to make two single beds, or raised and combined with the daybed to make another king bed. Full bathroom upstairs with shower, tub, and single sink serves both bedrooms. Good water pressure, and you'll get two or three (if short) consecutive showers before the hot water tank has to heat up again.

Downstairs, the den has a queen sleeper sofa, and can be made into a private suite with a full bath with shower, tub, and single sink. Laundry room with linens, towels and full-size washer and dryer is next to the den. There's another queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

The kitchen is recently remodeled, with marble countertops and new stainless appliances. Fully stocked with dishes, pots & pans, baking supplies and staple foods, spices and condiments. Microwave, electric smooth-top stove, dishwasher, hot water kettle, and toaster. Dining table seats 6-8, or up to 10 with extra leaf.

The great room is a living/dining room with soaring cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling picture windows looking onto the forest in back, and a reading nook with plenty of bright light. Comfy sofas and coffee table are great for reading, relaxing, surfing the net, watching TV, or playing board games. Lamps and a working fireplace complete the atmosphere.

The back deck gets midday sun and partial shade in the afternoon. Enjoy a bug-free outdoor space in the large screened porch, which has a small dining table and a wicker couch, loveseat and rocking chair with comfy striped cushions.

A mudroom at the front entry has a coatrack, bench and boot scraper/brush.

Becket, Massachusetts, Vereinigte Staaten

Be away from it all, but close enough to take in the cultural attractions of the Berkshires! Quiet private lake community; half a mile to the larger lake with two beaches and kids' play area, and a quarter mile to the smaller lake with small steep beach. The community is mostly vacation homes, with about a third occupied year-round, and has an active network of families that have known each other for years. Houses are well separated and you can't see or hear the neighbors at all.

Lots of nature! Hiking trails are nearby in the Becket Quarry Land Trust, October Mountain State Forest, Appalachian Trail, and many others. In the winter, hit the slopes at Otis Ridge or Butternut, or cross-country at Canterbury Farms. In the fall, you'll be so dazzled by the foliage you won't need to go further than the forest in the backyard.

For culture, it's just five miles to Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, where you can see all manner of contemporary dance and the free InsideOut evening dance performances. The fabled Dream Away Lodge has splendid food and amazing live music. Shakespeare & Company, the Edith Wharton House, Norman Rockwell Museum and Tanglewood are all within a half hour drive, with MassMOCA and the Clark museum a bit further afield.

There are lots of summer camp options nearby for kids, both sleepaway and day camps. Contact host for more info or if you are doing dropoff/pickup for Chimney Corners YMCA, Camp Becket, Watitoh, Greylock, or Lenox. (informal short stay possible for camp families)

The Becket Country Store & Cafe is about a mile away for basics like milk, coffee, diner food and good local gossip. Becket City Hall, the Post Office and Town Park with playground are all right by the Country Store. The closest town is Lee, about fifteen minutes down Rt 20, where you'll find supermarkets, restaurants, local shops and an outlet mall.
