About this listing
In the heart of the village of Shelburne Falls, one block from the center, walkable to everything, set back from the street, private, and surrounded by trees. This private guest space is near eateries, art galleries, boutiques, and 10 minutes to 91.
The studio apartment is located above the shop, out behind our house and gallery. The space was recently built by Jim and now has wifi, t.v., a reading chair, a desk, a table to eat at, coffee maker, a bathroom with a shower, a gentleman's hutch, a couch, a pull out futon and a king size bed. The lower shop is air sealed when work is being done, and we treat the upstairs as a "dust free zone". The shop is not in use when guests are here without making prior arrangements. The space is very private and great for a couple or single person passing through. We have a futon foldout for kids also. This place is an easy jump out of bed for a coffee or stroll through town. Being in the heart of our little village, you'll find local movies, live music, the coffee shop, numerous restaurants, a great food co-op, the artisans co-op gallery, and lots more. We are also about a block from the entrance to the Bridge of Flowers and 2 blocks from the Glacial Potholes.
The Arcansus Gallery, has temporarily changed into Cyndee hot yoga studio. You are welcome to message about whether a class will be happening while your here. In the past the gallery has been for Jim's woodworking and wildlife photography. Out behind the house, you'll find a paver courtyard, a lawn, hammock, sandbox, gardens, a chicken coop, and the shop, a.k.a. 14 9/16th.
We try to keep things very clean in general.
The apartment has a full bath, king sized pillow-top bed, futon pullout, small fridge, coffee maker, pot & utensils, a 24" t.v. w/dvd, cable, wifi, and an ipod/phone docking station w/speakers.
We are currently not offering breakfast, as we are just to busy with two little girls and life in general. We would highly recommend Mocha Maya's coffee shop, McCuskers Food Co-op, or the Foxtown Diner. Most are open quite early.
We hope you'll come stay with us and enjoy our space and beautiful surroundings.
-Jim, Cyndee, Isabela, & Marlee
wifi, t.v. w/cable and dvd, clock, radio, air conditioner, hot shower, pillow top king size bed. Sorry, no use of the shop:)
Interaction with Guests
We are often around and out back playing with the kids, gardening, feeding the new chickens (no rooster!), and going about our lives. The gallery is open only on weekends. We enjoy company and are glad to say hello.
Good eats, friendly people, beautiful river, and a special feeling.
Not really much for public transportation. There is the franklin regional transit authority (frta) stop 1 block away.
Other Things to Note
We kept the space open during the 2015 season and will likely do so again.
*please let us know if you have a pet. We allow one pet. Contact us about more than one. Also, please be honest if your pet has any peculiarities.
We only expect people to be respectful and nice. We hope that you will treat the space as you would your own home. We will empty the trash and wash the sheets. We do expect guests to let us know if they need anything or if anything should happen. The shower is a step in claw foot tub with overhead shower. Please be aware of water spillage. No cigarette smoking and no excessive alcohol consumption please. Also, we do our best to keep the room clean but it is above a woodshop.
The place was great! Excellent location. It was very easy to coordinate access to the studio. Cyndee and Jim were easy to reach and to communicate with. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend the place.
A very comfortable space for a family of three. Clean with amenities such a small cooking space, mini fridge, cable TV, internet, and A/C. Cyndee and Jim and the girls are friendly and generous. Unbeatable location!
I felt very at home in this place. Was passing through from Illinois on my way to Cape Cod. Could not have felt safer, cozier, or more relaxed. Perfect way to begin my vacation with my little dog, Lulu. The town is cute as ever too! Hospitality a huge plus for Cyndee and Jim.
Private, very clean, and definitely comfortable. Everything I was looking for. Hosts did not hover or micromanage, which I loved. Met Jim and had a great and brief chat. Super nice.
Excellent location, walking distance to nice vegetarian restaurant, and near quiet streets with pleasant river views.
I would absolutely return for another stay.
Jim and Cyndee were (email hidden)ry friendly and welcoming. I loved the room above the wood workshop, great funky space, unique, and comfortable. Very quiet and just a few steps to Shelburne Falls' downtown, which is great. Hope to stay there again sometime!
Another lovely visit! The woodshop studio is one of my favorite getaways. Cyndee and Jim made us feel very welcome -- they're such fantastic hosts! We hope to come back again next summer.
We arrived to a very warm welcome and had a wonderful stay in the comfortable and charming room above the wood shop. Thanks very much again to Jim and Cyndee for their responsiveness and hospitality!
