Privately situated, gracious home ideally located for exploring Shelburne Falls, the Mohawk Trail, the Berkshires, the Five College area, and Vermont. Two lovely adjoining bedrooms can accommodate up to 4 people sharing a private bath. Guests may enjoy breakfast downtown using a complimentary gift certificate before heading out to explore: outdoor rafting and hiking trails nearby, Mass MoCA, Tanglewood, and the Clark an hour away, and shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.

The space

The public rooms are filled with light from the long windows that face south. The bedrooms are located on the second floor, under the eaves, cozy and comfortable, spacious and welcoming. Rooms are adjoining and best suited to couples or families.

Guest access

Guests may use a private entrance that leads to the bedrooms on the second floor, but may also access the house through the main entrance, which opens onto a parlor where guests are welcome to relax. Guests may also enjoy lounging on the spacious front porch, weather permitting.

Interaction with guests

As a longtime resident of the area, I would be happy to make suggestions about sites to visit, restaurants, hiking areas and shops in and around Shelburne Falls and adjacent villages such as Historic Deerfield. Museums abound in the nearby Five College area and in the Berkshires, both a short drive from here.

Other things to note

Both bedrooms are located on the second floor and are not handicapped accessible. Couples wishing separate beds will be charged for two rooms. The resident dog - Chumley - is a very social and loving cockapoo, sometimes given to bursts of exuberance before meals and when guests arrive. She loves a good rub if you are so inclined - otherwise, she will leave you in peace.

Carol was a wonderful host. She was sweet and knowledgeable about the area. Her home was clean, everything was comfortable. Carols attention to the small details made the stay even better. We look forward to staying there again. Her dog Chummy was also very sweet and added a little something extra to the stay.

If you like historic homes you will love Carol's home. Comfortable and so enjoyable to come home to every day/evening. We stayed three days and wished we could have stayed longer.
