This was even better than advertised. It is a beautiful setting in the New England countryside. I literally have no idea what could be better. Clean, comfortable, stocked with food and gracious host. Well done!

You will love this place. They have thought of everything to make your stay memorable; from the keyless access, the information book, the thoughtful snacks and full refrigerator. The location is close to so many interesting sights and, although we were a little early for the fall colors, I can imagine the display from the back deck is spectacular.

This is our second time staying at Joseph's apt within 3 months.The kitchen and the fridge were well stocked with many choices of breakfast which we can prepare ourselves. The cooking utensils were complete set that makes cooking and preparing meals super easy for us. The house is very comfortable and peaceful in a rural setting. Thank you Joseph and Susan for your generosity.

This apartment suited us perfectly. It was quiet and in a beautiful location. We felt at home thanks to Joseph's detailed notes and welcoming e-mails. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It had a well-stocked kitchen and fridge. We would love to stay again in the future. Thanks Joseph.

We really enjoyed our stay. The guest apartment is completely private with all the amenities we needed. The setting is quite beautiful and the apartment is quite charming in its decor. The bed was comfortable as was the sitting area. There were several areas outside where we could sit and look at the view which included mountains, a pond, a flower and vegetable garden and a vineyard. Highly recommend a stay there.

I'm an architect and my office is in our home. I have primarily worked in Western New England but during my early career I designed several building in Kansas and Colorado. My wife Susan and I live in this rural area of Western Massachusetts, close to Rt 91, with easy access to all that Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and New Hampshire have to offer. I have my own practice and Susan works in development for a local college. We have an In-law apartment as a part of our home that has been unused, so we decided to try out Airbnb. We have 7 1/2 acres of land, mostly open. Our home has a panoramic view, from above a wet meadow, looking down on a beaver pond, in our "little" Shingle Valley. At night, when the lights are off, it's dark. You can actually see the stars here! Originally our property was part of a larger family farm.
