The SpaceHighlights include: wood-burning stove, cozy sleeping loft with a view of the woods and a meditation area beneath a skylight. Very comfortable built-in double bed. First floor has second bedroom (adjacent to living room) with double bed, large chifferobe, view of the back woods. Directly across from bright yellow bath (with tub). Hot shower has excellent water pressure. Tiny but fully-equipped eat-in kitchen. With small refrigerator and, full stove, cookware, dishes, etc. Screened in back porch faces woods. In front is small private edible garden (strawberries, blueberries, young fig tree and mostly native flowers.) In addition (unless we have worked out some sort of week-day/last-minute discount), we provide all bed, bath and kitchen linens. And usually have shampoo and other random toiletries you are welcome to borrow. Guest AccessSmall flat screen telly with a small yet impressive DVD collection. WiFi is reliable. We now have an actual freezer in the cabin along with small fridge. Constantly updating and improving! Washer/dryer in main house may be available (if we are home) but can't guarantee it. Interaction with GuestsYou have total privacy - whether or not we are on the property. If we are here and you'd like to meet Dash and Izzy (our Silkie Bantam chickens) or enjoy a game of backyard croquet, we are sometimes up for that as well. The NeighborhoodA cozy home base for apple, peach, and berry-pickers. Antique hunters. Downhill and XC skiers. In the summer the Granville Gorge is good for cooling off, and the Barkhamsted Reservoir has a "secret" public beach (Lake McDonough), popular with locals. Equine opportunities and at least two wilderness adventure (rock-climbing, kayak, canoeing) outfits are a short drive away. Shopping and cultural excursions include Northampton, Amherst and Great Barrington. Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow for music and dance all or = an hour away. For serious hikers the famous Tunxis trail is nearby, and for XC enthusiasts there is For downhill riding, skiing and tubing try nearby Otis (very old school resort with "vintage" lifts), billed as good for kids and beginners, but in truth it is also a great place for more experienced adults. Skilled boarders/skiers will appreciate the price (so inexpensive!) and all the space (no lines!) to do your own thing. Blandford is similar and also close by. More of a drive (and more famous) is Butternut in Great Barrington. Awesome tubing there and worth the drive. MORE: We do have a couple of old bikes you are welcome to use as well. (FYI we live at the top of a big hill.) Granville Country Store makes fresh bread, cellar-aged cheddar cheese and carries locally sourced fruit pies, maple syrup, cheese. They also have basic grocery items. If coming from NYC or Boston, best to buy food there and bring it. Food around here (unless it is harvest time or summer fruit season) is not as good, in general, and costly. This is a very rural area. Granby has Stop'n Shop and Big Y, as does Westfield - about 20 min drives in opposite directions. More about hiking (from (website hidden)) Day trails in the Granville area start at the Granville State Forest, located less than four miles from town. The forest hosts a network of trails, the longest of which is a roughly four-mile dirt road bisecting the forest. Because most of the trails intersect, individual trails can be tied into much longer day hikes that loop back to the forest's central parking area. Roughly 20 miles west of town is a semi-circle of protected areas, including the Tolland and Sandisfield State Forests. Each of the state forests and parks in this area offers networks of day trails similar in size and flexibility to those at Granville. Long Distance Hikes The southern border of Granville State Forest also serves as the northern terminus of the Tunxis Trail, a major cross-country route in neighboring Connecticut. Directly across the state line from Granville State Forest is Connecticut's Tunxis State Forest ((website hidden)) and a 21-mile trail extending out of the forest, with an additional 58 miles branching off into the northwestern Connecticut countryside. The trail and its branches are marked by blue blazes; they are characterized by a mix of barely improved tracks with unpaved, abandoned road beds. Getting AroundHow to get here: We are about 2 1/2 hours from both NYC and Boston. We are 25 minutes from Bradley International Airport in Hartford. Also try Amtrak, Peter Pan/Greyhound Express, or Metro North. In most cases driving (at least from the airport or train station is probably best), but in near future it may be possible to arrange to have a car pick you up. Check first! Other Things to NoteBy simply walking out through the back yard, you can snow shoe or hike into the town forest, and if you are really adventurous and good at finding your way, you can hike to the Tunxis trail.

The SpaceExtraordinary, custom-designed cook's kitchen takes center stage. The eat-and-lounge-in kitchen features multiple work spaces, sinks and other practical design details and surprises. The upstairs bath is also quite amazing. Separate W.C., and a huge tiled walk in shower room with an Airbath that seats two. Two king bedrooms, a queen bed in a cubby - hole bedroom, an antique day bed (twin size). Note: upstairs has a semi-open floor plan. Still, the space is large enough so that three couples have privacy. Downstairs is another full bathroom with shower. Mostly stone and glass, finished concrete (radiant heat) floors downstairs. Which means it stays cool in the summer. Mod meets romantic meets wabi-sabi/shabby-chic/eco-conscious. (Well-behaved) dogs welcome, and we know that most people who bring their dogs on vacation are super-considerate. Good to know - we are on five acres, with town forest behind us. If the neighbors behave it can be completely (we do have nice neighbors) even unreasonably, quiet. An adorable A frame guest cabin is also on the property, which is often available as well. . Guest AccessTwo small refrigerators (and a large separate freezer) located in the laundry room. You have the gardens, the woods, and (maybe) the awesome (outdoors) wood-fired hottub. Large double-sided working fireplace. Very modest media center, really just a flat screen with cable, a Roku box for Netflix instant downloads, Hulu, Pandora. Interaction with GuestsWe like to give you as much privacy as possible, but are always available by text, phone or email to address any concerns. The NeighborhoodScenery is gorgeous year round. Fall leaves are breathtaking, if you like to bike, we are at the top of a hill and you can coast down to the Granville Gorge and splash around, then get a real workout riding home. Rural community famous for apple and peach orchards, pick your own berries, and small dairies. Getting AroundHow to get here: We are @ 2 1/2 hours from both NYC and Boston. One option is to take Amtrak, Peter Pan Express, or MetroNorth and then rent a car. Or just rent a car. If the timing is right and you just want a place to hide for a few days we can pick you up from Hartford or Springfield. It's a cozy home base for apple, peach, and berry-pickers, antique lovers, skiers and boarders (small downhill slopes are close by, great for first-timers). Just around the corner is really good cross-country. For serious hikers the famous Tunxis trail is walking/hiking distance. or a short 10 min drive to a trail head. Equine and a Wilderness Adventures outfit also a short drive. The Granville Gorge is good for cooling off, but the Barkhamsted Reservoir has a "secret" public beach (Lake McDonough), which is equally popular with locals. Westfield and Southwick is a 20 min drive away, restaurants and antiques and supermarkets etc. Granby, Ct is 15 min in the opposite direction. Longer excursions include Northampton, Amherst, Great Barrington and Stockbridge. Also Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow for music and dance. All from 45 to 1 hour away. Other Things to NoteWe have an eclectic library, an interesting DVD collection, a few board games, a canoe, old lacrosse sticks, bikes, a couple sleds, a croquet set - let us know what you have in mind and we'll do what we can to help you have fun! Our best kept secret is our wood fired hot tub that we can sometimes allow guests to use. It is situated behind the main house. If no one is around it is a perfect treat! Just ask if you are interested; we will need a full day to prepare it - clean it, fill with fresh water, We have to charge an extra $150 for all this.

The SpaceBesides your bedroom and the amazing bath (avail at certain hours) you will have access to the enormous double-sided stone fireplace in the media room/living room where we love screening docs and old movies and 70's exploitation and stuff in the evenings. We like to use the TV for Pandora during the day - to play tango and blues and latin jazz and opera and stuff. We have a wood fired "nature tub" that may be available if you want to help us gather wood etc to heat it. We will cook for you/with you if you care to join us. We are mostly vegan. If you just want to escape without social pressure you can hole up and read in peace - we get it. We are usually quiet and always considerate and truly enjoy hosting. We have discounted the rooms while we finish our upstairs renovation! Guest AccessBesides use of much of the Stone Palace (see our other listing under "entire home" ) Basically, we have three structures on five acres, and have found that many things are possible when people are interested in being creative, fun, respectful, honorable and reasonable. Curious just ask. Interaction with GuestsThe palace is large enough so that if you (or if we) want to hide away and read or work or whatever, it's pretty easy. On the other hand. The rather quirky/open/modernist floor plan makes absolute privacy difficult in terms of sound etc. But we enjoy interaction, especially with people who share our interest in growing and building community, who appreciate diversity but avoid preciousness and truisms, who respect nature as well as urban life, and also collaboration and personal growth and start-ups and non-human animals and b-movies and women stand-up comics and the 1980's and the kind of books with pages that you turn and also technology. We enjoy the company of smart, kind, funny, skilled, odd, respectful, creative, non-judgy people who don't easily offend. Also gardeners, crafts persons, storytellers, actors, carpenters, cooks, bakers, linguists, philosophers, entrepreneurs, writers, fortune tellers. The NeighborhoodGranville is a historic village in Western Massachusetts. Very beautiful, very rural. We have one store, a small library, a town square. Famous for our annual Harvest Festival on Columbus Day weekend, the Granville Gorge, the Tunxis trail, and the Granville State Forest. We have five mostly wooded acres with town forest behind our backyard (we often see wild turkeys in the mornings and evenings.) Getting AroundWe don't have much public transport out here, regrettably. Uber is supposed to come soon, though. And Enterprise will come to the house if you suddenly need to rent a car. But this is prime biking territory, nothing like the Berkshire foothills to give your calves and thighs a good time (if you like that). Plus hiking on the Tunxis trail or the Granville State Forest. Other Things to NoteWe have a new rescue dog with fear issues, so that may or may not be an issue for you. We love well-behaved dogs. We also have a few Silkies - a unique breed of chicken. Our roosters, can be noisy at times now that they are raising nine chicks. People who enjoy animals or at least tolerate them will be happiest with us! As for pricing, the upstairs bedrooms, while funky and cool, are not quite finished (ask us for an update/details) This has not been an issue for the many people who have booked our entire home, but we worry that some guests will really want access to the bedroom suite - our bedroom - mostly because it has an amazing view and great light. If this is VERY important to you, ask us about upgrading.

The SpaceThis space is ideal for the couple or person traveling alone who is inspired by nature. Whether you are traveling into the Berkshires to Kripalu for a workshop, visiting friends and family in the hill towns or greater Springfield area; here on business or just want some special time to yourself in a safe environment; the cozy cottage with the two ponds and brook located on three beautiful acres will offer you a visually serene experience! Sometimes we just need to get away and be pampered. Soaking in the Jacuzzi bathtub, sleeping late, home cooking and breakfast ready and waiting for you, walks in nature, listening to the babbling brook, driving up into the Berkshires for antiquing and quaint shopping maybe be just what your soul needs. Sometimes its nice to know there is someone you can talk with if you feel like company and someone who understands if you just want to be alone.
