Our Western Massachusetts Eco-Friendly Vegetarian Vacation/Getaway Retreat is a 1790 restored farmhouse with an attached artist/writer studio and barn (painting studio).The house has a downstairs and upstairs apartment. The studio is set between the house and barn and can be connected to the downstairs. There are three private bathrooms.

These spaces can be rented separately or together for families. Our rates are up to $600 per night for the entire house and studio. Rates depend on number of guests. Each space is also totally private - *Downstairs Queen & Small Double bedroom Apartment - $200 (up to 3 guests)/225 (4 guests) per night. *Upstairs Apartment Queen Bedroom & Single sofa bed - 160 (2 guests)/200 (3 guests) per night. *Studio Queen Bed & futon - 150(2)/175(3) per night.

The buildings are surrounded by rambling organic gardens, forest, marvelous sky and landscapes, cross-country, sledding, skiing and snow shoeing on a twenty-acre hillside (ten acres are in wildlife conservation) in the foothills of the Berkshires just six miles west of Northampton, Massachusetts. Amazing sky and mountain views. It is a great joy to the owner that Flower Hill Farm has evolved into a diverse wildlife habitat. Be sure to bring your binoculars and cameras. By car you will be able to reach Snow Farm in 5 minutes, 12 minutes to Double Edge Theatre and 15 minutes to Northampton.

Flower Hill Farm is a very clean, simple, spacious, rustic place surrounded by the magic of nature. We do not wear shoes inside the apartment.

We do not use pesticides or any chemical fertilizers at Flower Hill Farm.

Outside the walls of the old farmhouse and studio nature abounds with wonders. There are no pets here, but many butterflies, songbirds, fireflies, grouse, wild turkey, woodcock and other creatures of the wild live in our gardens and forest. Guests enjoy breathtaking views -- sunrise, moonrise and stargazing too! Woodland and garden paths along with a country road offer inspiring walks... Don't miss a moonlight walk through the gardens. Hundreds of varieties of plants, shrubs, ornamental and fruit trees add to your outdoor experience throughout the seasons.

                          About the owner: Our life is filled with art and nature... painting, photography (see Flower Hill Farm's Blog), writing and farming/gardening. Our guests often write they leave refreshed and restored from their visit to our humble paradise.

                          Why the Owner Chose Northampton:
                          We were attracted to the beauty, magic and charm of the landscape and rustic farmhouse. The area is rich in cultural happenings and abounds in creativity and fun. Living close to nature, while minutes from a five college area is rather ideal.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                          Simple living surrounded by serene beauty and sounds of nature. The sky too is large and breathtaking.
