Discover Cavalier Cottage B&B;, a pet-friendly home away from your home and an attractive alternative to conventional hotels, motels and B&B;'s. We warmly welcome visitors who come to this beautiful and diverse area of Western Massachusetts with or without their companion animals. Since opening the cottage in January of 2012, I've welcomed more guests than I could possibly have predicted or hoped. It seems that Cavalier Cottage has answered a need for truly pet-friendly accommodations. I could tell you stories about the wonderful four-leggeds who've enjoyed country walks here, not to mention their terrific two-legged companions. I could not have imagined that I'd meet such a variety of interesting people when I opened the cottage this past winter.Nestled at the base of the Charlemont hills and located on a very quiet country road, Cavalier Cottage is spacious, bright and comfortable. The live-in area is simply but graciously appointed, featuring ceiling to floor windows, newly installed oak laminate flooring, a queen size bed with a deluxe plush-firm Simmons mattress, private entrance and private deck. The fully equipped kitchen has an eat-in area with a full size stove and refrigerator (in case you want to cook-in), and a private bathroom. Relax on the private deck and enjoy the country view. For entertainment, you can access Netflix, Amazon, Hulu & Acorn movies/shows streaming via the 28 inch flat panel TV, plus DishTV with over 200 channels, or play classic board games. To stay in touch with the outside world, the cottage is equipped with a strong Wi-Fi signal. The cottage uses and provides environmentally-friendly and cruelty-free cleaning and toiletries. Park your car in an enclosed garage if you need to. Amenities also include a delicious Continental breakfast with home baked English scones, a small but growing library, and a CD player with a collection of jazz and classical CD's.Cavalier Cottage is conveniently located to the Mohawk Trail (Route 2) and many outdoor activities: There are great hiking trails, river rafting, tubing, zip line canopy tours, horseback riding, tennis, golf, biking, snow shoeing, rock climbing, downhill and X-country skiing. The beautiful Massachusetts countryside, with its many quaint villages and towns, is also home to a great variety of iconic educational and cultural destinations, including MassMoCa, the Clarke Institute of Art on the Williams College campus, and many more. The area is a four-season vacation destination, from foliage time in the autumn, through ski season into spring hiking time and summer holidays. Time here is sublimely tranquil and peaceful.
