The SpaceWe are quiet and private and quiet, with Brimstone Hill and its woods behind us and the pastoral Deerfield River Valley in front. Our guest wing includes a butternut paneled bedroom with a queen bed, and private bath, a private deck and full windows to the south. If you enjoy waking early to birdsong, or slumbering in, you will join our countless guests, friends and family, who never want to leave. Heat for colder nights is ample from the propane stove. Guest AccessOur guests will use the main entrance to our home, pass through the open plan dining/living/kitchen area to your suite at the west end of the house. A private door leads out to your deck, and down to the clearing, and the woods.
We offer a simple breakfast: coffee/tee; homemade granola or other cold cereals and local yoghurt.
Guests arriving after dark should let us know so we can be sure the lights on the drive and outside the house are on.
You will turn off S. Shelburne Rd. where you see the mailbox with 270 on it, and drive for about 150 yards to the house, which is not visible from the road. Interaction with GuestsWe have lived here for a dozen plus years, know the area well, and can offer recommendations for dining, recreation, hiking, sports, vistas, entertainment... The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is fields, farms, forests and vistas. We have no immediate neighbors. Local dining and shopping is in Greenfield or Shelburne Falls. Getting AroundArrival at Brimstone Hill must be by car, bicycle or motorcycle (or of course, by foot!). There is no public transportation nearby, though taxis can be called from Greenfield (10 minutes away). Other Things to NoteWe are just a few miles from the village of Shelburne Falls and its Bridge of Flowers, art shops and studios, and dining with several options. Further west is Berkshire East Ski/Recreation area, and whitewater rafting at Zoar Outdoor or Crabapple. An hour west is Williamstown, featuring Williams College, the magnificent Clark Art Museum and, in North Adams, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MassMoca). For those visiting the Five Colleges in Northampton, Amherst or South Hadley, we are a 30 minute drive away. The High Ledges Audubon Sanctuary and its hiking trails with vistas overlooking the Shelburne Falls Valley and east up the Deerfield River all the way to Mt. Greylock, is a 15 minute drive.
