The Space

Our Victorian home has tall ceilings and large rooms. It's family-friendly - no fancy furniture or antiques. Just lots of spaces that are pleasing and comfortable. On the first floor, there's a large living room, dining room, and kitchen. There are two bathrooms on the first floor - a half bath under the front stairs and a bathroom with a shower behind the kitchen. There's a side porch off the kitchen leading out to the yard. On the second floor there's your cozy bedroom with two twin beds and a shared bathroom with a tub and shower. (We can put a single mattress on the floor if you would like to share the room with a third person for an additional charge of $20/night.) Please note: We have one television located in the living room to share. There is not a private television in the room. FYI.

Guest Access

You'll have access to our large living room, dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, two and a half shared bathrooms, a side porch with a hammock and barbeque, bicycles, a musty cellar with ping pong and a a pool table, and large backyard.

Interaction with Guests

Whether you're looking for fun, romance, or rest and relaxation, we do our best to provide the right setting for you. Some of our guests come for a romantic get-away. We give them lots of privacy and provide a beautiful, spacious, peaceful place with delicious local food. Some of our guests come and live with us and we end up sharing meals, sharing stories, making music, and having fun together. Just let us know what you are looking for!

The Neighborhood

Shelburne Falls is a very unique place. The Deerfield River flows down the middle of the town, cascading down through huge rocks worn into beautiful formations. Our "Bridge of Flowers" is an old trolley bridge, perfect for an early evening walk over the river surrounded by all the latest blooms. There's a touch of something old fashion here that we love. We don't have chain stores - just locally owned restaurants and small businesses with lots of character. In three blocks, we have several great restaurants, a coffee house with great musicians coming through, a food co-op, a small supermarket, a specialty wine store, two pottery studios, a glass blower, an art gallery, lots of alternative medical practitioners, an herb school, and more. We don't have a mayor - just three people on our Select Board who implement the decisions we make together at our annual town meeting. It's a place where you can relax, breathe deeply, and let your worries go. Berkshire East ski slope is close by. Our town is great for walking and biking. Great hikes are close by too.

Getting Around

It's best to have a car to get around here.
It's an easy walk down Main Street to the center of town.
You can get a Peter Pan or Greyhound Bus to the JWO Transit Center in Greenfield and, less frequently, to Shelburne Falls.
You can get local bus service from Northampton, Amherst and Greenfield to Shelburne Falls on the Franklin Regional Transit Authority (FRTA). There are only a couple buses each day when they run. Check the schedule here: (website hidden). Shelburne Falls is on the Charlemont/Greenfield route. You can ask the bus driver to let you off at the corner of Hope and Main in Shelburne Falls and you'll be a block from our house. You can also flag the bus from the corner of Hope and Main as it travels between the Arms Library/Shelburne Falls and Mohawk High School. The bus drivers are happy to stop and pick you up. (Get there a bit early so you don't miss the bus going by!)
All Around Taxi is the only taxi service in our region. The fare is about $20 from Greenfield to our house. Call them early to get on their schedule - (phone number hidden).

Other Things to Note

We have spent a lot of time figuring ways to live more wisely in our home, investing in a solar hot water system that provides most of our hot water six months of the year, lots of insulation, window and door upgrades, natural cooling systems, composting, and permaculture gardens. When you stay with us, you probably won't notice any of these things unless you look for them, but you might notice that our home feels comfortable and cozy year round.
