We had the MOST lovely visit to Western Mass at Jody and Penny's wonderful farm! Their space is sunny and brand-spanking new, and was perfectly suited to our needs. We especially liked the kitchen, which upon our arrival included fresh eggs from the hens, apples from the apple trees, homemade preserves, butter, bagels, coffee creamer, and coffee for our first breakfast! The grounds we alive with birds and flowers, too: just right for photographing. Jody was very helpful throughout our four-night stay, had great recommendations for hikes and meals, and even helped us when we got lost. We highly recommend this location to fellow AirBnB-ers and look forward to coming back soon ourselves. Thank you for a terrific stay, Jody and Penny!
Magical place! Wouldn't change a thing.
So sorry about the trash and compost. We usually get that all out, but must have missed it with all of our family stuff happening. Thanks for your understanding.
The apartment is as wonderful as it looks on the website. The parking is adjacent to a small porch and private yard. It's a terrific location to explore Pioneer Valley and The Berkshires. Terrific hiking, cycling, museum & gallery hopping, music and dance all within a 15 - 75 min drive along gorgeous country roads. There is a market, pharmacy post office, gas station and bank within 5 min. While on the property, I saw, among other creatures, a humming bird feeding off the many perennials. The hosts, Jody and Penny are also terrific. I'd recommend this place to my closest friends and you. Cheers.
This is a great AirBnB spot. The apartment is beautiful (really!) and its surrounded by beautiful trees and land. And you're only a 15 minute drive from downtown Northampton.
Jody and Penny were great hosts. I couldn't recommend this place more.
Penny and Jody were very gracious hosts. Not only was the apartment incredibly clean, comfortable, and welcoming, we were left with fresh eggs, honey, and jam all from the farm! Our hosts let us explore their farm which is incredibly beautiful and peaceful, a destination in and of itself. Also, a great place to relax after a day spent touring the area. Highly recommended.
The listing was exactly as described and as pictured. Penny and Jody were busy during our stay, owing to the time of year and the labor required by the demands of owning a working farm, but the space was beautiful, both within the apartment and beyond it, the broader landscape was gorgeous, the place was quiet, and the hosts were completely lovely. This apartment is a wonderful place to stay for those looking to spend any amount of time exploring the great natural beauty and cultural opportunities of western Massachusetts. The two of us spent most of our weekend using the apartment as a base while visiting the Berkshires, and while places such as Tanglewood, Shakespeare & Co., jacob's Pillow, and Mass MoCA are all about an hour's drive away, Jody and Penny's farm was cozy, clean, wonderfully appointed, and beyond idyllic, and the driving time was well worth it. I cannot recommend their space highly enough.
We couldn't have enjoyed it more! Jody and Penny were wonderfully welcoming hosts, the apartment is lovely, the farm is delightful. Comfortable, bucolic, well-equipped, peaceful.
What a wonderful place to spend a weekend away! A lovely private apartment in the most tranquil setting you can imagine. It poured the first day of our trip, but thanks to the surrounding trees that reached as far as the eye can see, it was probably my favorite day there.
Jody and Penny were the perfect hosts - incredibly helpful, setting us up with everything we needed, providing good recommendations for the area, and even stocking the kitchen with homemade goods from the farm - incredible!
The apartment is even nicer in person than in the photos. Everything was brand new and clean, and it was a great set-up (we were traveling with our one-year-old daughter so it was nice having a closed off bedroom for naps). The kitchen is well-stocked if you're looking to do some cooking, both with equipment and essentials (salt, pepper, etc).
Williamsburg is a charming town, and it's not a far drive to nearby Northampton or Amherst, so there's plenty of site-seeing. Definitely stop by the Williamsburg Snack Bar and get a lobster roll or ice cream sundae (or both)!
It was lovely hosting you and your family. Thank you for the great review. I'm glad you liked it here so much. Hope to see you again. We are also grateful for the bread knife suggestion. We'll get one ASAP.
This is a delightful place to stay. The apartment is spacious (perfect for our family of three), very well equipped, with exceptionally comfortable beds. Walks around the farm are an interesting bonus (chickens, friendly cats, an apiary). Jody and Penny communicated well beforehand (it's important that you pay attention to their careful directions on finding their driveway), greeted us warmly, and provided the makings for delicious breakfasts, including fresh eggs and homemade jam. In summary, highly recommended.
Jody and Penny were perfect guests and I would welcome them back in my home anytime.
Awesome guests!!! Jody & Penny were really the sweetest, kindest, most appreciative guests that we have ever had the honor of hosting!! They were also extremely friendly, warm, considerate, clean, open, interesting, easy-going guests who kept us apprised of their arrival time as it got closer. I enjoyed my chats with them & only wish they could have stayed longer b/c I really enjoyed their company!!! Thank you so much, Penny & Jody for staying with us ..... and please come back again and stay as long as you would like. We loved having you!!!
It was our pleasure as well. We hope to come back some time.
A fine gentleman, considerate and thoughtful in every way. And I would be just as complimentary about his wife, Penny, who is also his hiking companion. They are both salt-of-the-earth types, strong, fit and healthy, pure of heart, and to be trusted in every way.
Thank you Richard. You were a fine host, and we hope to come and stay there again some day.
