The space

Our beautiful home is an historic old farmhouse built in 1806.
With twenty rooms to care for, it is a vibrant work in progress. There are various projects going on, mostly refurbishing other rooms. Your space will be clean, lovely and comfortable, but please note there may be a little dust as you pass through.

Guest access

Dining room, laundry, Kitchen (let me know if you'd like to cook), Keurig coffee maker, fridge space.
Our two lazy hounds and a silly corgi will be around to greet you, but they do not have access to the guest areas.
If you wish to have friends over we can set up a campfire that will not disturb other guests.

Interaction with guests

When you arrive either my partner or I will show you your rooms, bathrooms, and where the filtered water is hiding. We try to avoid knocking on your door, communicating through Airbnb messaging or text instead. It's a very large house and we might be on the other side, so please do the same if you need anything at all!

The neighborhood

Canaan New York is three minutes from the Massachusetts border. We are in the Berkshire Mountains, twenty minutes from Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony and wonderful comteporary music concerts.
Kripalu Yoga Center is fifteen minutes away.
Also close to Stockbridge, home to Norman Rockwell and the Rockwell Museum.
One of the loveliest towns in New England is Great Barrington, Mass, where you'll find more to look at than I can think of, a 25 minute drive.

A day trip to the world reknowned Clark Museum or Hancock Shaker Village is well worth it. Two of our favorite sites and completely unique to the area.

Getting around

Our house is not close to any public transportation! The Berkshires and Columbia County are definitely best enjoyed by car, but we can arrange a ride for a twenty dollar fee.

Other things to note

Please bear with us if the puppy does some barking when you arrive.
During the day you may hear traffic but it is generally quiet at night.

My name is Maggie, I'm a very happy lady, a seeker of joy wherever it might show up. These days that means having loads of interesting people stay at my beloved house. Hospitality is so rewarding, it's wonderful to fill the space with sleepy people who've been on different adventures.

I lost many years of my life to an illness, I was homebound and bedridden. I never expected to get well, but Science and Medicine caught up with my ailment and I was able to heal (from brain damage) thanks to a brand new treatment.
So I'm playing a lot of catch up with my new life. I travel and go out dancing and work on this old house like I never could before.

I just began hosting for Airbnb in June of this year and I'm so glad this is part of my newfound health and energy
Hope to meet you soon!
