Enjoy a lavish stay at this luxurious and brightly-lit two-storey escape, nestled in the peaceful town of Becket on 15 acres of private woods. The home has three bedrooms, a red cedar barrel sauna, an outdoor shower, and a large backyard–everything for a restorative getaway from the city.

Two unique spaces, a traditional one bedroom plus loft home plus a separate bunk house. The bunk house has electricity but no running water.

The space
Located in the heart of Becket, this artistic home is perfect for families, travelers, peace-seekers and adventurers. With great architecture, serenity and access to nearby natural ponds and hikes in the area, the house is the perfect weekend getaway from the city, and with a gigabyte of high-speed internet–the ideal place to WFH for a week.

The sunlight floods in this two-storey octagonal home, which encompasses one bedroom, a loft, and a bunkhouse, sleeping space for 7 guests. The artistic sense of the house is enhanced by stained spruce floors, exposed rough-sawn beams, and multiple area rugs in the basement, kitchen and bunkhouse.

The home warmly welcomes you with a bright, spacious kitchen to cook scrumptious meals for the family. This fully functional chef’s kitchen offers a speckled granite countertop and a handcrafted bar-height butcher block island made out of hard maple, perfect for having a nice breakfast and getting some work done! The kitchen is stocked with high-end cookware, electric stove, fridge/freezer and all the kitchen essentials, ready to be used for delicious meals. Enjoy quality time and make memories at the large dining table, ample ceremonial space to seat six guests for family-style meals or for game night.

For your comfortable stay, the house is installed with all the necessary amenities, and an electric heating and cooling system keeps the place cool in the summer and cozy warm in the winter. There is also a large stacked washer/dryer in the basement.
The main delights of the house are outdoors: an easy-to-use 4-person red cedar electric barrel sauna and beautiful outdoor shower. After a day of hiking or a day pounding the keys at your laptop, nothing is better than rotating back and forth between 15-minute saunas and a freezing cold shower: it’s what the Finnish do!

A spiral staircase that runs from the finished basement all the way to the loft adds an eloquent perspective to the property. However, a little caution would be great when small children and elderly take the staircase.

After an adventure-filled day, retreat to the beautiful birch plywood finished basement for TV and entertainment, or make use of the surround sound while you get in a sweat in the amply-stocked home gym. The large flat-screen TV has all the apps you need for an evening of binging: sign-in to your subscriptions to binge on Netflix, Prime Video, HBO, etc

The house also offers a large parking area to the front left which can easily accommodate 3 small cars.

This cozy and rustic house is close to natural ponds and woods so you can rejoice in your stay with friends and loved ones. Guests are welcome to use the vast property, inclusive of front/backyard and spacious woods behind the bunkhouse and sauna. A small trail leads to a year-round spring and creeks, located roughly 400 meters back into the woods, where you can refresh and rekindle your love for nature. A nice clearing (and a tent platform) for camping back by the creek/spring is perfect for adventure-lovers and peace seekers.
