This is actually the camper at a camping site on the Battenkill River; this is not my property--but that is the camper. Early spring in the backyard!

The "cowgirl (or cowboy)" themed camper is situated a short walk from the house where you can use the restroom/toilet/sink and also access to the kitchen as well as a shower upstairs. There is no running water in the camper. There is a fridge, a microwave, a coffee maker, snacks. A few yards away there's a fire pit--in the backyard that merges with seven acres of woodlands. There is privacy and peacefulness--and so many birds. And flowers.

The space

There is also wi-fi in the camper. Guests find the camper space to be cozy and full of amenities. Most are up early and off to the trails or the museums, or both. The Shasta is right under a huge maple tree. Fireflies, birdsong, flowers, woods, .......

Interaction with guests

You can pretend you are in a remote location or come in the house for company. But actually you will be five minutes to Williams College, ten minutes to the Clark, twenty minutes and you can be at MassMoCA. On the first floor of the house there's a half bath and upstairs there's a giant bathroom with shower and tub. You are welcome to use the kitchen, downstairs living area, and upstairs bath.

Other things to note

You must have cheerful tolerance for dogs and cats.

The vintage camper provided a wonderful unique lodging venue while visiting the area. Perfect for a lone traveler or couple. Well appointed with a microwave, coffee pot, heater and air conditioner. Marsha is a terrific, accommodating host. I look forward to fiture visits when I am traveling/hiking in the area.

Loved meeting Marsha, exploring her house & property and resting in the Vintage Shasta Trailer which is decorated to the "T" ready for a Hollywood production of Home on the range. She's a true Artist and I immediately felt a close kinship. Her homestead, an oasis, on the northern edge of Williamstown heightens all that the area has to offer; one gets to be immersed in living Art itself not just glancing at a painting hung on a wall.

This camper was the best decision we've ever made! Marsha was so great and welcoming. The camper had everything we could ask for.

Marsha's camper is fun and economical. She's a lovely and generous host, and I had everything I needed for a cozy snooze in a creative, retro spot.

After years of living in Houston, I moved to the Berkshires, retiring from my position as Writer-in-Residence at Rice University. Although my house is five minutes from Williams College, it's difficult to find, tucked back off the road, facing eight acres of woodlands. Guests say it's a surprise to find a slice of nature wonderland after you drive into "the compound." Birdsong will wake you. I love to host. I'm originally from Louisiana so expect a bit of New Orleans flavor: strong coffee, southern drawl, and southern hospitality. My dogs will greet you in an overly friendly manner. We are all somewhat demonstrative around here in our welcome to guests. There's a screen porch, a deck, a patio, a fire pit, and cozy rooms filled with art and books.
Easily accessible from my home are The Clark, MassMoCa, besides the art installations this is where the music festivals take place--Fresh Grass Music Festival, Wilco; also I've hosted many families coming for Williams' graduation. There's hiking in close proximity--the trailhead for Appalachian Trail is nearby but also many other trails, as well as lakes--Windsor Lake, North Pond--and rivers--Green River, Deerfield. There's the Williamstown Theater Festival in the summer and Tanglewood is 30 minutes away. An abundance of riches! I'm in love with my new home base in the beautiful Berkshires--far away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. I've created a pocket of eccentricity here in Williamstown--some funky charm I brought North with me to my new abode.
