Relax in our bright, very spacious apt, on six open acres. Lounge on the stone terrace, under the stars, by a cozy fire, near the garden. 35 min to Northampton, 35 min to MassMoca, 10 min to Bekshire East. Wi-Fi, satellite TV with MLB package, cell coverage, Hearthstone wood stove. Fully outfitted kitchen, home made granola, milk, beverages. Two hybrid bikes available for use. The pics don't do the apartment justice- there are 3, five foot skylights, and a cathedral ceiling, very bright!

The space

The apartment has a queen sized bed, coffee maker (with coffee provided), plenty of pots, pans and utensils, and a new 39" HD TV with DIRECTV satellite service. The space is newly renovated with nine new windows, and new paint on the walls, ceilings, and floors. There are three, 5 foot long skylights on the slanted ceiling- one in the living room, one in the kitchen, and one in the bathroom. There are just about six acres of open field, which faces south/southwest, and a beautiful vegetable garden with stone terraces at both ends. We also built a Black Locust pergola at the south end of the garden, which sits atop a Goshen stone terrace (we just planted grapes, but they're still very short!). There is also a fire pit at one end of the garden, and an outdoor fireplace at the other end. There are flower gardens in several spots on the property. We are 100 yards from the public library, which, itself, has recently been upgraded in a major way. Our home also houses a one room post office (300 sq. feet), which is open from 12pm to 4pm, M-F, and 8:30am to 11:30am on Saturday. It's rarely busy...

Other things to note

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES AND SKIING
Plainfield Pond is minutes away- Goshen State Forest with beach and hiking is 15 minutes away. Crab Apple rafting and Zoar Outdoor are 25 minutes from us. Berkshire East Ski Area has downhill skiing, and summer outdoor activities. They are in Charlemont, Ma (20 min). Notchview State reservation has tremendous cross-country skiing and hiking trails, about 18 minutes away in Windsor, Ma. Stump Sprout also has tremendous cross-country skiing and snow shoeing . They are in Hawley, Ma, about 11 minutes away. We also have about six acres to ski and snow shoe on, here at the apartment…

RESTAURANTS
As for restaurants, the closest is the Ashfield Lakehouse (10 min) which is being renovated- I believe it's going to feature Italian food. The Gypsy Apple is in Shelburne Falls, and they are phenomenal, but it's small, you'll need reservations . The Blue Rock Restaurant is also in Shelburne Falls, and it too is an excellent place to dine ("new American cuisine", and great Margaritas).They are 20 min from us, 10 min from Charlemont. The Brewmaster tavern is in Williamsburg (20 min), and they have American food (the best turkey dinner around). The Old Creamery (7 min), is an excellent grocery store with excellent prepared food, and a great deli. That's probably your best all around bet. We often get food to go, and warm it in the oven, check out their website ((website hidden)). If you really want to venture out, go to Northampton- great restaurants, and lots of shopping, about 35 min away. ..Hope this helps!

Peter’s restaurant recommendations were spot on. The apartment was spacious and bright. We had a cold snap and flurries but were cozy warm with the wood stove providing ambiance as well as heat. One caveat...The stairs are a little steep if you have knee issues. We loved our experience with Peter who was always available but very discreet.

Peter's home is a lovely, private, entire apartment. It was clean, updated, with thoughtful extras such as homemade granola (delicious)! Peter was very responsive, and although we weren't able to connect in-person, he was quite helpful. Would definitely stay again!

This is one of the best spots I've visited through Airbnb. Peter is warm and friendly but not at all overbearing, the place is cozy, warm, tasteful, and comfortable. There is a real wood stove, a full kitchen, a comfortable bed, and beautiful scenery. It's a little rural, which is what I was looking for, but you won't be walking from here to a bar or anything. But if you're looking for a tasteful, quiet retreat, this is your place.

We had a wonderful time. Lots of great places to explore nearby. Peter's place was comfy, spacious, easy to find. Peter was easy to communicate with and he even had the wood stove ready to light since it was forecast to be a chilly evening. We look forward to staying there again in the future.

Great place out in a country setting. Peter had some drinks and breakfast for us which was so nice and a warm fire. I would stay agin if I go back.

This lovely, quiet, comfortable, and spacious apartment was just what we were looking for for a weekend getaway in the Berkshires. A short drive from the museums and historic sites of the region, and from the wonderful Gypsy Apple Bistro, which Peter brought to our attention and became a highlight of the trip, this place is a real gem and we'll hope to return in the winter months.
