We would love to have you stay at our home. It is close to family-friendly activities, the airport, and the 3 largest cities in MA. Approximately one hour from both Logan International and Bradley International Airports. Also 5 minutes from Old Sturbridge Village and the Brimfield Antique and Collectibles Show. You’ll love it here because of the coziness, the location, and the serenity. It would be for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

The space

The space would best be described as an in-law unit. It is essentially 3 rooms with the bedroom and then the living room and kitchenette. It also includes a private bathroom with shower. The bed is full size bed but should having to sleep separately be an issue, your guest can accommodate a fouton in the living room. This walk-out basement "apartment" is conveniently stocked with the simple things to make your stay more enjoyable. A microwave, mini-fridge and coffee pot will help with additional food meals not provided by us (you will love our complimentary breakfast). We have awesome restaurants in Sturbridge but it is nice to have the ability to make extra snacks,store drinks etc. The private bathroom is just a few steps away on the same level. It also has a private patio should you like to sit outside. This would be a nice place to smoke if you happen to be a smoker.

Guest access

There is a private entrance which is accessible through the backyard. During winter months we may prefer you come through the house depending how much snow/ice there is! Breakfast is served upstairs in the dining room.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to chat with you, give advice about places to visit etc. but also want you to have privacy should you desire it.

Other things to note

We are a family of 3 right now with our son away at school. Thus the reason we have the available room! There is some noise obviously as we are all in the same home. We did have, however, a friend living with us in this space for over a year and we were very conscious of being over her head and think we did a good job of being careful and quiet.

Wow! We stumbled upon Nicole's airbnb listing by chance (a midway stop-off to our destination) and I'm so glad we did. Nicole and Rom put the "Bed and Breakfast" into AirBnb. Super easy communication and check-in. The downstairs whole level / studio was immaculate. Fridge, microwave, popcorn, coffee maker, sodas. Fresh towels, linen, TV, freshly vaccumed and A/C on arrival. To top things off, there was a breakfast order form for the following morning! I've stayed in a few airbnb's around the world and this has been the best by far, both great people too. Don't hesitate on booking this accomodation if you're reading this review.

Thank you so much, you guys are so sweet. When we decided to do this we definitely wanted to treat people the way we would want to be treated. I am glad that it is showing. I hope to do this for a long time, as it is so fun meeting wonderful people like you guys!

Rom and Nicole are nothing less than splendid hosts. My wife and I were happily lodged away in their beautiful, accessible home for only one night, but felt immediately relaxed and welcomed. Their wonderful hospitality, conversation and kindness (and fantastic breakfast!) were much appreciated. We'd highly recommend a trip to Brimfield to stay with these lovely people.

We didn't succeed to see Nicole because she was on her trip. We stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. Rom prepared great breakfast on Sunday. Jumper and America had very cuddly goats :) and thank you very much for helping to make our trip an enjoyable experience.

We had a short but wonderful stay at Nicole’s. The property in in a beautiful secluded area that is still only a few minutes from Sturbridge. We didn’t take advantage of the breakfast, but there were very good choices available. We did, however, visit with Nicole over coffe and chatted about her animals and the area. We will definitely be back.

One of the best AirBNB experiences we’ve ever had. What an amazing find. We were counting our lucky stars once we got to Nicole’s lovely place. She really put time and thought into preparing the room (which was huge and spacious - like a mini apartment!) and amenities for us. We had a great breakfast, could find everything super easily, could RELAX, and even had a rest time visiting with goats and chickens in the backyard. Also - there’s a gorgeous reservoir leading up to the house that really complements this very idyllic setting. We had such a peaceful and wonderful stay, and Nicole is SO much fun to talk to. We sincerely can’t wait to visit again soon.

This place is an Air Bnb gem. Perfectly located near Sturbridge for sight seeing. It is secluded, peaceful and calming. The space is very large, cozy, clean and with unique and extra amenities. Nicole and Ron are wonderful hosts and we will certainly suggest their place to friends and family.
