2 bedroom suite w. private bath in separate upstairs area of large home. If you only need one room, I keep the other empty for your privacy. Separate guest entrance, secure parking. Beautiful nature setting, quiet, secluded. Fast wifi, large workspace, ample storage, comfortable mattresses. Tasty, healthy, home cooked breakfast. Next to 80-mile bike/walking trail. MA towns, Bradley Airport & Interstate 91 a 10 min. drive, Hartford/Springfield-- 20 min. drive. Host acts as your concierge.
While the typical AirBnB room is next to other actively used areas of a private home, this space is a two-bedroom suite with private bath on the second floor, no other adjacent living space. Both rooms are included in the single reservation, however to keep the accommodation affordable, a single person or couple would use one bedroom. Others in the party who normally do not share a room such as a child or friend are welcome to use the second bedroom. One bedroom has a queen, and the other a full bed and a single bed.
This suite is within a large home where the host lives.
Guests are asked to conserve electricity and water usage.
The rooms are carpeted with plenty of closet, drawer, and other storage space. The bathroom has a mini-fridge, coffee/tea setup, microwave, and large bureau. There is ample off-street, secure parking and a garage bay usually available for snowy day parking.
The home is located on a beautiful wooded 6+ acre lot with a southwest mountain view. A unique feature is the beautiful pond and outdoor seating area (back lawn) as well as a large secure front lawn and paved area for sports and play. Breakfast is served in the family room/kitchen area facing the pond and western forest view.
Shared Space: This family room/kitchen is reserved for host use unless otherwise arranged. For example, the kitchen can be used for occasional stove top cooking, in coordination with the host's use/schedule. Also if needed, you can arrange for children to play in the child-proof family room. Adult guests may use the large living room which has a door for privacy. Children and adults may use the front yard; adult supervision is necessary for the back yard because of the pond. On snowy days a bay in the attached garage can be made available for parking.
Guests enter via a dedicated outside door which opens directly up the stairs to their suite. This door also opens to the living room which is set aside for adult guest use.
Please see related information in "the space" section above.
Guests can coordinate occasional use of the kitchen for light stove-top cooking (no oven/broiler). The guest bathroom has a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker upon request, and large bureau for storage.
Please note that no guests beyond those specified are permitted to visit the property or stay overnight.
I welcome you in person and arrange to be there at checkout. The private entrance enables guests to come and go during their visit, with or without interaction with the host. I am home parts of the day and at night.
If you wish, I prepare and serve a custom cooked breakfast which provides a good opportunity to discuss your needs and share information that can enhance your visit. I take a concierge approach to hosting. I am very interested in people and enjoy having guests. My priority is to ensure guests feel welcome, comfortable, and well served. I can suggest local activities and sights based on your interests. Many items in my home are available for loan to support your visit so please don't hesitate to ask for assistance and advice with anything that can make your stay more enjoyable and convenient.
If you have preferences regarding the timing or level of contact with me, privacy, etc. just let me know.
Please communicate house guidelines to others whom we have agreed will be staying here.
Guests will be asked to be considerate of water and electricity usage.
I keep a well groomed short-hair cat in another part of the house; she is never allowed in the upstairs guest area. I do an extra vacuuming beforehand if guests tell me they have an allergy.
Snow policy: I am very flexible on last minute cancellations or changes due to snowstorms that makes local travel hazardous or that cause flight delays/cancellations. If you are not comfortable with driving conditions in my area, for any nights you have reserved but will not be staying I will be glad to reimburse you for the amount airbnb pays me. Professional plow services in this rural area including mine come to clear after the snowfall has ended, which may not always be convenient with guests' need to come and go.
I am opening up my home of many decades to share with others with the expectation that guests will be respectful of the care and attention that has been given to making this a comfortable, peaceful, attractive, and well-maintained property.
No pets or smoking.
Guests are asked to conserve water and electricity.
Additional guests, visitors and partying is not permitted. Quiet time is 10:00pm-7:30am.
I offer a variety of cooked breakfasts which I'll serve between 7:30 and 10:00 a.m. depending on our schedules. If you need to leave early or don't want breakfast, just let me know. Also please identify any environmental allergies or food intolerances of anyone in your party.
For winter bookings, please ask about my snow policy.
I'm a recently retired professional who has always had a passion for nature, music, wellness, fitness, and good literature. Born in Canada, I am delighted to end up in a home immersed in nature, just like my childhood. I love to learn just about anything, socialize, play tennis, do projects around the house, and spend time with my family especially my grandson.
