The Space

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.

Shelburne Falls, population 2,000, is home to the Bridge of Flowers, Salmon Falls & the Glacial Potholes. 30 minutes from Northampton, MA; North Adams, MA; Charlemont, MA; Rowe, MA & Brattleboro, VT. One hour from Springfield, MA; Mt. Snow/Haystack ski resorts & Pittsfield/Lenox/Lee, MA. Nearby white water rafting (Stacy used to be a guide), zip-lines, VT and local ski resorts, excellent dining, swimming, art studios/stores, film, museums, etc. etc.

  • Comfy futon, clean linens, local recommendations, and very friendly... what more could you ask for. They were nice and easy-going, I recommend staying with them for sure.
