Comfort, character and charm on our second floor. Save those special dates now for holidays, graduations, weddings and the Brimfield Antique shows. Full bed, shared bath, complimentary light breakfast. Spacious room with TV, microwave, refrigerator. Our house is over 200 years old and frankly is being painted this Fall. Fortunately this doesn't seem to affect our guests comfort!

Interaktion mit Gästen
We try to meet all our guests and generally do not rent when we are not at home unless we have repeat guests. We encourage you to tell us your needs and to ask questions to insure a pleasant stay. Guests have been known to enjoy my husband's guitar and to see a few of his magic tricks. Fran frequently takes great pictures of visiting guests and emails them to you quickly. We both like to chat but respect the guest's privacy. We do not go into the guest room when the room is rented unless a guest requests something.
Weitere wichtige Infos
We don't generally reserve this room for long stays. Our first floor Laid Back Victorian is often available for longer stays. If our calendar makes it necessary to combine a few days in each room, we will offer our usual weekly and monthly discounts.
Plenty of off street parking. If you have a high vehicle such as a U-Haul, please talk with us, since special arrangements are needed to avoid our overhanging roof.
Please note that our AC units are window units. Therefore AC is available May through Oct depending on the weather. Heat is available all year.
Please note that airbnb.com policy requires that the person making the reservation be at least one of the people staying here during the reservation. If you have interested friends or family, please encourage them to register with airbnb.com.
We love children but limit our accommodations to older children (12 or older) since our old house is not childproof for the younger ones once they can crawl about. The upstairs room only accommodates two people. Communicate your needs so that we can keep you happy! Shared bathroom requires personal consideration. No additional overnight guests. No smoking in the house. Please don't set off the fire alarm. We don't have a lot of rules, but would prefer not to have ultra noisy guests. Happy to give you privacy, but we would love to visit with you and offer advice on places to visit and services needed. If you have a tall trailer or RV, talk with us so that we can tell you the safest way to park. We have plenty of space but overhead clearance in the driveway is low so we have an alternative approach.

I am a 65 year old semi-retired hospital administrator currently teaching management courses online. I am also a certified Creative Journal Expressive Arts instructor specializing in combining journaling, meditation and collaging to purse ones life goals. My husband, a magician, musician and photographer, and I live in a 200 year old home in a New England town of about 15,000 people. My travel usually includes him or my adult daughter who lives in the Boston area. His daughter and our granddaughter live nearby and he has a son in Vegas.
I like the expressive arts, drum circles, zoos, crafts, and word games. My favorite travel has been to South Africa. My husband has traveled to Thailand and neighboring countries and once lived in Denmark. He is happy to take your picture or bring out his guitar. Our experiences have included luxury hotels and minimalist camping, both of which I enjoy. Our food tastes are eclectic.
When traveling we prefer a clean, safe spot; share well and enjoy meeting people. I do have a loud laugh and find humor in most situations. We like to think of ourselves as considerate guests. We are open to making a new friend or simply leaving our guests to their privacy at their discretion. Meeting guests is almost as much fun as staying at new places. We have been hosting for over four years and have had guests from 29 countries and 27 U.S. states.
In my early life I wanted to be a cultural anthropologist so perhaps I'm just returning to my true self. If you have an interest in a magic or guitar lesson from my husband while traveling, just let us know. I am also happy to arrange private creative journal coaching when my schedule permits..
