The Day Room is a bright beautiful custom painted semi-private room with a huge slider door window which you can cover for late morning sleeping or wake up to the sight of the goats. If you want privacy and my daughter's room is available, just ask.
(Please read full description.)
This listing is for the colorful and bright semi-private day room.
Our home is an art piece located in heaven close to the fabulous town of Shelburne Falls (worth a web search). There are other listings available in our house. If you are a group and want to get creative, you can also request our large couch.
Shelburne Falls is home to the Bridge of Flowers, the magnificent geological wonder of the Glacial Potholes, a health food store, an original drugstore ice cream soda counter and many beautiful art galleries. And if this were not enough there are number of wonderful restaurants. The thing about this town is that it is NOT just a tourist town, it is our town, a real town complete with a thrift shop, bowling ally and Pothole Pictures, a film series in an old time working theater with an eclectic offering (also worth a web search).
Feel free to prepare you meals in our fully equipped kitchen. Though not pristinely clean, our home is tidy and very beautiful (we are a working farm and working people.) Wireless access available. We have one (stunningly beautiful) bathroom which you will share with our family and other guests.
We are a family with cats, dogs, goats and chickens so expect some possible morning noise and some friendly faces. For those with cat or dog allergies: there are NO cats in the house but there are dogs. Pets with good social sense are welcome pending pre-conversation (for a $5/day fee).
Clean up after your kitchen use, please. I am SERVSAFE certified and I'd love to make you breakfast if I am around (just ask!).
Smoking out doors. Use of laundry for a moderate $3 fee. Be kind to all animals.
We are 35 minutes from Northampton, and 45 min from Amherst and 40 min form MassMoca.
Be kind to animals, don't get wasted, smoking out doors, be thoughtful of other people here by cleaning up after your kitchen use and containing your mess to your room. Reminder that our house has only one bathroom so baths/showers may need some coordinating. Finally, please communicate to me if there is something you need or that is not working.
We are Janice and Michael. I, Janice Sorensen, am an artist and have a business called HomeGirl reDesign. My husband Michael Hoberman, teaches English and American Studies at Fitchburg State University and loves to play the banjo. We love to travel and connect to the people, cultures and landscapes of the world. We both like to run and we live on a farm with cats dogs goats and chickens.
We hold hard work and mutual respect high on our list of values along with fun and exploration. Life is for YES.
