We have a small (stand-alone) guesthouse w/ a loft and a full bath adjacent to our home that has two "twin" beds in a loft. IMPORTANT: THE LOFT IS ACCESSED BY A VERTICAL LADDER. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO CLIMB A LADDER THEN THIS IS NOT A RENTAL FOR YOU! We are close to Shelburne Falls, Deerfield, Northampton & Greenfield, Massachusetts. You’ll love our place because it is a get-away spot with a unique location and character. We also have an apartment. See Shingle Valley Country Apartment at Airbnb.
1. We expect that you will enjoy the peace and tranquility of our little valley, and assume that you will respect that while you are staying here. We have a manual for your use, in the guesthouse, that describes the specifics. 2. Linens changed depending on the length of stay. Generally, once per week. 3. We are not responsible for power outages. We have an emergency generator that powers a portion of the guesthouse, heat, water & hot water, refrigerator, and microwave. 4. Please, NO TV after 11:00 pm. 5. No smoking, use of drugs or excessive drinking allowed. No loud music after 9pm.
I'm an architect and my office is in our home. I have primarily worked in Western New England but during my early career I designed several building in Kansas and Colorado. My wife Susan and I live in this rural area of Western Massachusetts, close to Rt 91, with easy access to all that Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and New Hampshire have to offer. I have my own practice and Susan works in development for a local college. We have an In-law apartment as a part of our home that has been unused, so we decided to try out Airbnb. We have 7 1/2 acres of land, mostly open. Our home has a panoramic view, from above a wet meadow, looking down on a beaver pond, in our "little" Shingle Valley. At night, when the lights are off, it's dark. You can actually see the stars here! Originally our property was part of a larger family farm.
