Classic New England Cape Cod style house in beautiful setting. Only minutes from the village of Shelburne Falls, two "scenic byways", Great bicycling, and quiet walks and/or hikes. Guest room is nicely decorated with comfortable full size bed and a big bay window overlooking gardens and hills beyond. Private full bath across the hall/living room.

The space

The bright, nicely decorated guest room is in a traditional Cape Cod style house built in 1991 though often mistaken for being much older.

Guest access

The guest room is right off the front hall/entry. You're welcome to use that entrance or our usual entry at the kitchen. A private full bath is across the front hall/living area. You're welcome to use the yard and enjoy the gardens as well as our cozy porch for morning coffee..

Interaction with guests

Coffee and tea provided. We're not permitted to provide food. I'll generally be around during your stay to help with suggestions and directions to the many attractions in the area.

Other things to note

Shelburne Falls is five minutes away. A very quaint village with artist galleries and studios, the Trolley Museum, as well as a number of very good restaurants/cafes, some with live music. There's also the Bridge of Flowers and the Glacial Potholes.

Jim and Cooper, the amazing and very friendly dog, are great hosts and a big thanks again Jim, for making us feel so comfortable in your house and the great coffee/ tea in the morning. Everything was great. :-) We had a very nice chat about this and that. Summing it up, we highly recommend to stay at Jim's house if you're looking for a beautiful private room and a host who is making your stay as good as it could be. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks a lot for our great stay in your house.

Jim's home is extremely comfortable, charming, and clean. I felt right at home and totally put at ease. The location is also perfect: close to town, yet remote enough to be quiet and peaceful. Cooper the super friendly dog is just the icing on the cake! I would be delighted to stay at Jim's home again if I get the chance.
