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.

The space
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 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 fully-equipped modern kitchen, linens, wifi, washer and dryer, one car garage, professional pool table, all in a rustic and elegant setting. There is a Amazon Fire TV, with Netflix and Hulu and a DVD player.

Well behaved pets will love it too. Smoking only on the deck.

Guest access
Waldtreff has lots of parking around the house. The long uphill driveway is cleared and cared for in the winter, but guests arriving in snowy conditions are best with
4wd vehicle.
