This is a private room, shared bath, with double futon bed plus memory foam mattress topper, in my charming home on a quiet street at the base of Pine Cobble in Williamstown, Mass. 25-min walk to the downtown area with shops, eating establishments. Close to local museums, hiking trails, colleges. I do not offer breakfast, but have some granola bars and juice in your room, (coffee-maker, tea in dining room), and sometimes make a batch of muffins on the weekend which you would be welcome to share.
I do not accept smoking in the house, not at all.
In general, I say "no pets" but, if you have a pet who you really want to accompany you, you can let me know, and I can decide if I can accommodate. I am much more a "cat person" than a "dog person!" But I have sometimes had a very quiet dog in the house.
Williamstown is a recycling community (paper, plastic, metal) and so, if you have recyclable materials to dispose of I have bins for that in the kitchen, or you can just leave the recyclable materials (along with your other trash) in the room and I can take care of them.
This is a quiet house and area. Please be considerate and refrain from any loud activity in the later evening. After 10 pm, we are normally settling down for the night. After 11 pm, it is QUIET TIME! We need to get up for work the next morning!
The living room is available for relaxation, but you may not sleep on my sofa! If you will not be comfortable sleeping on a futon mattress with a 1.5 inch memory foam topper, please look for other accommodations. Sometimes, if you are bringing a child along, we can arrange a "sleeping place" on the floor of your room to accommodate.
I am an artist & poet. I love creating . . . in the studio, in the kitchen. I like to browse cookbooks, listen to NPR, dance and sit on my porch in the warm seasons with tea and a good book. I like to create an environment in my home that is relaxed and accented with plants, books, art & perhaps some small wind-up toys and other children's delights. I love cats, but do not have one right now!
