    This unique wooden cabin is furnished with a wood burning stove to keep glampers cozy in the winter months, and can sleep two guests. Situated in Becket in Massachusetts, this cabin is the perfect place from which to explore all that the Berkshires has to offer: skiing, hiking, and sightseeing. Although the interior is rustic and simple, those staying in the cabin have free access to the main lodge, which is just three minutes away on foot. The main lodge has a fully-equipped kitchen to prepare meals, with a grill and a seating/dining area. Every morning, guests take a scenic three minute walk to the main lodge where they can enjoy a hearty breakfast included in the rate.The cabin itself is fitted with a private outhouse, but the main bathroom is also located in the lodge up the road. There is a fire pit where glampers can share stories over a camp fire in the evening. Although there is no electricity or running water in the cabin, the host will supply a gallon jug of water, and one light. This wooden cabin is perfect for those who wish to reconnect with the great outdoors, and a wide array of wildlife has been spotted from the cabin, including moose and raccoons. The host requests that glampers bring their own bedding to this camping cabin.

We're in a private, forest community that offers small beaches on five clean lakes and minimal traffic on our well-maintained hard-pack roads. Access to the highway is a one-minute drive. We are rigid about being smoke free, and have nearly no dust because there's no duct work. We have good cell phone service and we supply wi-fi. You're welcome to watch TV in the great room; just let us know. Guest AccessBedroom has queen-size, real bed, big windows, cozy bedding, and cross-ventilation and fans in summer. With pre-arrangements, our microwave is usually available. We provide basic dishes and a small, electric coffee-maker, but we don't provide breakfast. All bedding, towels, paper-products are provided. We have parking off the road for enough cars. Interaction with GuestsWe're aware that many of our traveler-guests need a good night's sleep, access to the internet and good cell service, hot water and privacy. We're happy to help with directions and quick referrals to local diners and a bit further-away Very Good Restaurants. We're usually home but if guests will need to come and go, we provide a key. We're usually happy to visit with our airbnb guests who are interested in chatting. The NeighborhoodWe live in a forested subdivision whose dirt roads are well kept year-'round. We're proud of the nearby convenience-stores and diners whose local-owners offer good food every day for 3 meals. There are 5 small lakes which are actively maintained, tested for cleanliness, and available only to people who live here and our guests. A few hundred people live here, and our homes are interestingly varied. Car and truck traffic are scant, and we don't have sidewalks, but walking around the 20 miles of our roads is a common activity for residents and for visitors. Foxes, wild turkeys, geese and ducks, deer, and coyote are pretty regularly seen. Around the corner and up a road by about two miles is Peace Haven farm. They maintain a "farm stand" of fresh eggs and produce they grow 11 months a year and short lists of baked and prepared groceries from local suppliers. A pretty drive to get there, and the couple who own and operate Peace Haven are pleasant and helpful. Getting AroundWe're ten miles from Lee, MA, where the nearest super-markets, and a good-sized "outlets mall," and an array of restaurants are located. "Greyhound" bus stops in Lee, but local public transit is not useful to visitors. There is a local car-rental in Lee that our guests have found reasonably priced and reliable. Of course, the airports in Hartford, CT and Albany, NY are each about an hour distant and both have the usual rental car businesses. Other Things to NoteFall foliage color is a highlight of each year in this area; and winter-weather activities are available. A cross-country ski resort is only a few miles away, and several down-hill ski places are within a half-hour's drive. There are three "entries" to the Appalachian Trail, within a few miles and the October Mtn. state forest also has groomed trails for hikers. Other state and local government-maintained hiking areas are within convenient driving distances(URL HIDDEN) Museums, live music, live theater and cinema are all offered during the, "off seasons" even after the intense, summer season offerings at Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow and Williamstown Theater. Fine food in really good restaurants is generally available in Lee, Lenox and Stockbridge, and at Dream Away Lodge in Becket for its short off-season. Holiday dining events are available that range from buffets to reservations-required limited seating.

    The SpaceLovely, renovated studio cabin, kitchenette (toaster oven, hot plate, rice cooker, tiny fridge, microwave, coffee and tea pots, blender), private bath. One bed, a firm queen mattress. Ground floor; studio above used when guests out, separate entrances, privacy. Cell phone service is iffy here. Wifi has been working well since I got a new router recently; but the connectivity in the country is not perfect and does require rebooting, which I'll be happy to do if I know you have a problem. One guest had no problems on her computer, but her phone wifi was spotty - not sure why that would be. If excellent connectivity is important to you, this is probably not the right place. I have chemical sensitivities and am allergic to gluten. The sheets and towels are all cotton and cleaned with unscented laundry soap. Natural fibers and cleaning products throughout. HEPA vacuum. Sleeps 2 comfortably. (One pair of guests had a baby and that worked fine, too.) All the outdoor space - the lovely yard, the table with umbrella - great place to eat outside, the outdoor grill, smoker, and charcoal chimney used to eliminate the need for lighter fluid - bring your own charcoal. That's up to the guest. Lovely quiet country setting with 40 acres of Nature Conservancy land in the backyard. Five minutes from fabulous x-country ski trails at Canterbury Farm. Ten minutes from Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Kushi Institute, and Heartwood School,; thirty minutes from Tanglewood, Minutes away from lakes and hiking. Also ten minutes from the Dream Away Lodge (restaurant with music and more ambiance than you can shake a stick at), twenty minutes from Lee and Chez Nous French Bistro. This is the country - you need a vehicle. GPS seems to be getting right to the house - email me if the listed directions don't compute and let me know your route - I'll give you directions from the main roads. Treat yourself to a private art class in my studio upstairs. If you want to learn about color or how to draw what you see, or if you've ever felt blocked with your painting or drawing I can help with that! A word on reservations: weekends in July, August, and October please make single night reservation no more than one week prior to visit. Guest AccessAll outdoor spaces as well as the front ground floor room of the cabin. Please bring your own own charcoal for the grill. Interaction with GuestsI'm usually around or not gone for long. I tend to leave guests to themselves unless they're looking for interaction - or help. The NeighborhoodThe yard has a pasture on one side and 40 acres of Nature Conservancy land along the back of the property. One the other side is a house about 70 yards away with a wooded lot between us. Getting AroundIt's in the country - you need your own transportation here.

        The SpaceThis 2-bedroom house and separate 2-story garage sit on an acre of land with a small blueberry patch, outdoor clothesline, and fire pit in the big back yard, bordering a stream. There are two parking spaces (best for smaller/compact cars) right by the road. Inside, you enter into the living room (with a couch, desk, DVD/BluRay player, and bookshelf), with the master and secondary bedrooms opening off of this main room. Down the hall is the small bathroom (with a shower), and kitchen. There is a sliding glass door onto the outside porch with a picnic table, and a back emergency exit through the mudroom. There's a great view of the sky at night if it's clear, without much light pollution. We've been told that the place is "quite magical, like a painting!" We are in the process of making some light repairs to the house itself (such as repainting some areas, refinishing/repainting the second bedroom, replacing windows/blinds, etc). The windows are old, and can be tricky to keep clean, so the place can get a bit dusty. There is an air filter available if you would like to use it. Guest AccessThe garage is not available to guests, nor is the secondary bedroom at this time. Feel free to use kitchen utensils, and if you eat something out of the pantry, just leave a small donation. We prefer guests don't use the basement (including the washer/dryer) without permission. Feel free to use the entertainment center (there's no cable TV, but we have some DVDs/games, and you can also bring your own). Interaction with GuestsWe spend most of our time in Southern Vermont, and are rarely in Becket, so we would not see you during your stay unless we let you know otherwise. This means guests will have the whole place to themselves! The NeighborhoodNestled between the Berkshires & the Pioneer Valley, Becket is at the eastern edge of Berkshire County, at the border between Hampden and Hampshire Counties. This country getaway is still close to a wide variety of cultural centers and summer festivals: Jacob's Pillow Dance festival (15 minutes away), the Kushi Institute (a macrobiotic education center, 10-15 minutes), Tanglewood and the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health (in Lenox and Stockbridge respectively, a 30 minute drive). The Shakespeare & Company and Berkshire Theater Festival venues are roughly 30 minutes away. There are also museums that are available: The Norman Rockwell in Stockbridge, The Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Museum in Williamstown. Becket has a Country Store and General Store (within a 10-15 minute drive, both have breakfast and lunch eat-in or take-out options), and is also 10-15 minutes from the infamous “Dream Away Lodge" – a quirky 200-year old restaurant and performance space with a changing menu and unique atmosphere (they can be found online – reserve ahead!). Lee (20-25 min), Lenox (30 min) and Stockbridge (30-35 min) offer very good eateries and entertainment venues. Lee has a mall and there are many small shops in Great Barrington (40 min drive). Northampton (45 min East) is one of the hip, bustling towns of Western Massachusetts and the Pioneer Valley – plenty to see, do, and eat, and great places to shop. Let us know if you want recommendations. Fall foliage is a highlight of each year in this area; and winter-weather activities are available. A cross-country ski resort is only a few miles away, and several down-hill ski places are within a half-hour's drive. There are three places where the Appalachian Trail criss-crosses roads in Becket, and the October Mountain state forest also has groomed trails for hikers. Other hiking and swimming areas, such as the Chester Arches, are within convenient driving distances. Getting AroundThe closest airports in Hartford, CT (Bradley) and Albany, NY are each about an hour away, and there is some public transportation, but it’s hard to get around without a car. Plenty of places to hike and bike, though! Other Things to NoteCell reception is spotty for most networks in the house itself, but you can drive a few minutes for better reception, or use the WiFi. We find it's a good excuse to disconnect for a while! There are a few DVDs you can watch or books you can read if you're interested in a cozy night on the couch :) The Internet is provided through a dish, so it is slow and not good for streaming or FaceTime, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), etc. It is sufficient for email and short YouTube videos, but don't expect to be able to access things that require high bandwidth, such as Netflix. The front door locks with a combination which we'll send you with the other arrival information. The bed has a firm memory foam mattress that is quite comfortable! :) The heat is controlled by a digital WiFi thermometer which you can control yourself (from the living room), or you can ask us to adjust it or pre-set it to certain day/night temps. Please leave the heat at 50 or so when you leave. There is no air conditioning in the summer, but there is a fan provided. Some guests have suggested grocery shopping ahead of time if you plan to cook on site, because the remote location is not near many grocery stores.
