The SpaceThis is an old house and full of art objects and colorful, funky style. It can be a bit drafty in winter. It has high ceilings and plaster walls, so will tend to be dustier than a modern house. Nevertheless, people find it very comfortable, and interesting, to visit here! Guest AccessThe internet password is pistol123 on the Rossi network. The electric stove is very old. The temperature controls are low, med, high on the burners as you turn from left to right. Turn the oven and broiler knobs to the right one setting to turn on.
I provide coffee, tea if you prefer, and have available some yogurt, granola, fruit, bread for morning munching for guests. Other meals are up to you--if you want to cook here, let's coordinate meal times and such. If you want to be fed, we can talk about that in advance and see if we can work it out.
Guests are welcome to use one of the living rooms for hanging out in downstairs as well as personal space upstairs and the kitchen, and any area of the yard including porches and deck. The den off the kitchen is generally my son Jon's territory.
We have a couch big enough to sleep on in the living room and an air mattress that could be used in one of the rooms if necessary.
Please clean up after your pet. Interaction with GuestsI don't mind offering rides to guests, within reason, and I am happy to work things out with you on a case by case basis; however, you should not come here expecting transportation is available without advance notice. The same thing may be said about food; I will provide coffee and tea for morning, with yogurt, fruit, granola for a light breakfast if you wish. Other meals, and arrangements to cook, please let's talk in advance! Getting AroundThere are regional buses running Monday-Friday at present. Also local cab companies and some Uber service. Train station in Greenfield runs north and south; connect to Fitchburg commuter rail to Boston by car (50 milers from here). Turners Falls has everything a town offers within walking distance--banks, restaurants, shops, food, entertainment, etc.
