Relax in this dramatic log home - it is both a wonderfully quiet refuge and a modern gracious house, perfect for family retreats or a reunion of friends. Secluded and private in the woods, but close to all the Berkshires has to offer.
We call it "Waldtreff" (a meeting in the woods), but guests say "relaxing and wonderful". This comfortable log home is a wonderfully quiet refuge and a modern gracious house.
Set in a private lot of 60 acres, there are woods to discover and established trails at the Old Becket Quarry, easily reached on foot. It is a short drive or strenuous cycle trip to nearby swimming at the Becket beach, to shop at the Prime Outlets in Lee, to hear concerts at Tanglewood, or hike the Appalachian Trail.
Equipped with all the amenities - you just need to show up for a relaxing vacation in the Berkshires. Two hours to Boston; two-and-one-half hours from New York City.
Accommodations include three bedrooms (each with a queen bed and kid's bed). The master bedroom has a full bath, with a luxurious soaker, and both other bedrooms have private lavatories. There are also two queen sized futons, and an extra single bed and another full bath with jacuzzi bath and sauna. The huge deck includes an outdoor fire, gas grill, sitting area, and outdoor dining table and the hot tub is tucked among the trees a few steps away.
The house is fully stocked and ready for your comfort and enjoyment with 'basic' cable, video projector, fully-equipped modern kitchen, linens, wifi, washer and dryer, one car garage, professional pool table, all in a rustic and elegant setting.
Well behaved pets will love it too. Smoking only on the deck.
Interaction with guests
The owner and caretaker live nearby and are available if needed, but not in the way of your feeling totally at home at Waldtreff.
I am a retired globe-trotting business guy, now doing Executive Coaching for people making international transitions. A single dad, mountaineer, lover of both the outdoors and creature comforts -- I very much enjoy hosting folks in Waldtreff, my cabin in Becket MA, which is in pure nature, but also very comfortable.
