The space

This listing is for light and beautiful pale blue bedroom upstairs that features a large picture window.

Our home is an art piece located in heaven close to the fabulous town of Shelburne Falls (worth a web search). There are other listings available in our house. (If you are a group and want to get creative, you can also request our large couch.) Note: the room listed here passes through my husbands small office and most mornings he will need to be in there (as early as 4am) working quietly.

Shelburne Falls is home to the Bridge of Flowers, the magnificent geological wonder of the Glacial Potholes, a health food store, an original drugstore ice cream soda counter and many beautiful art galleries. And if this were not enough there are number of wonderful restaurants. The thing about this town is that it is NOT just a tourist town, it is our town, a real town complete with thrift shops, bowling ally and Pothole Pictures, a film series in an old time working theater with an eclectic offering (also worth an online search).

You can bring or prepare your meals in our kitchen and bathe here. Though not pristinely clean, our home is tidy and beautiful (we are a working farm and working people.) That said, we are a shoes off household, so bring your slippers if you'd like. Wireless access available. We have one (stunningly beautiful) bathroom which you will share with our family.

We are a family with cats, dogs, goats and chickens so expect some possible morning noise and some friendly faces. For those with cat or dog allergies: there are NO cats in the house but there are dogs. Pets with good social sense welcome pending conversation for an additional $5 per day.

Clean up after your kitchen use, please. I am SERVSAFE certified and will love to make you breakfast if I am around for an additional charge. Just give me notice.

Smoking out doors. Use of laundry for a moderate $3 fee. Be kind to all animals.

We are 35 minutes from Northampton, and 45 min from Amherst and 40 min form MassMoca.

Janice's place was the best AirB&B I've ever stayed in. Look forward to coming back.

We had a wonderful stay at Magpie Farm! Janice was very welcoming and accommodating with our dog. The property is charming as you walk past the raspberry bushes, abundant flower beds, and farm animals. Sitting on the front porch in the evenings was relaxing, and the room was spacious and comfortable. A bohemian artsy vibe emanates the house and surrounding area. Overall, we enjoyed our stay!

Lovely artistic home cared for beautifully by Janice. A real treat. So fun to look at the art, the books, the pottery and all that she has created

Great place with lots of very friendly people! Only minor inconvenience with a full house was the bathroom line but wouldn't stop me from staying there again! Lovely bedroom, lovely setting and comfortable bed
