Interaction with guests
This is our second home, but there is a live in couple in the adjoining apartment who will welcome you, answer questions and help with anything.
Warwick is the town that time forgot. Miles of trails to hike and ski just outside the door. Quiet shady hilly roads attract bicyclists. You can walk from our house up Mt. Grace, the highest mountain east of the Connecticut River in Mass. Working farms, a wonderful town library and cultural programs in the Town Hall many weekends. Yet only 40 minutes from Amherst, Northampton, Keene, and Brattleboro. Under 2 hours from Boston
A car is essential but there is bus service to Amherst, Northampton, Keene, and Brattleboro and train service to Amherst and Brattleboro
Other things to note
Within 5 to 15 minutes of the house there is a town beach on a pond, a forgotten swimming lake, and a state park with swimming. . There is canoeing and canoe rentals in nearby Orange, along the Millers River and in Tully State Park, both about 20 minutes away.
two night minimum stay
No smoking and no pets. No shoes in the house because the floor boards are virgin pine, 200 years old. We have lots of slippers. Be considerate about noise because of live in caretaking couple.
