1790 prior post office, country store, militia hall now home situated on nearly 2 acres on state highway 112 in scenic vacation destination village of Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
First floor deluxe double futon in exposed post & beam open living area. Since this is our livingroom, this accommodation is only available as overflow if our other beds are full.
First floor bathroom (1-one).
Owners are chemically sensitive so building is scent-free with no carpeting, except the stairs. 100% lead-free building. WIFI and basic cable TV, although we are not much of a TV-watching household.
House is in continuous state of renovation so perfection should not be expected. We are NOT a B & B but a working household! Stacy works from home in 2nd floor office and Whip runs a weatherization business from the premises.
Expect to see: plush linens, stacks of flooring, gutted mudroom, soffet-less new standing seam roof, patio-en-process, Walnut Hill, neighbor's 3 donkeys chomping our grass, open windows in the summertime as weather is fair, Ginger our fluffy Maine Coon cat and Dusky, the big black cat.
Expect to hear: rural rush-hour traffic starting at 7 am, a cacophony of songbirds, the neighbor's far-away rooster & cows, Clesson Brook across the street after 7 pm when traffic grows scarce & Stacy working at her desk starting at 9 am.
