A SPECIAL PLACE
Discover Cavalier Cottage B&B, a pet-friendly home away from your home and an attractive alternative to conventional hotels, motels and B&B’s. We warmly welcome visitors who come to this beautiful and diverse area of Western Massachusetts with or without their companion animals.
PET-FRIENDLY WAS THE IMPETUS FOR OPENING
Since opening the cottage in January of 2012, I’ve welcomed more guests than I could possibly have predicted or hoped. It seems that Cavalier Cottage has answered a need for truly pet-friendly accommodations. I could tell you stories about the wonderful four-leggeds who’ve enjoyed country walks here, not to mention their terrific two-legged companions. I could not have imagined that I’d meet such a variety of interesting people when I opened the cottage this past winter.
Nestled at the base of the Charlemont hills and located on a very quiet country road, Cavalier Cottage is spacious, bright and comfortable. The live-in area is simply but graciously appointed, featuring ceiling to floor windows, a queen size bed, private entrance and private deck. The fully equipped kitchen has an eat-in area with a full size stove and refrigerator (in case you want to cook-in), and a private bathroom. Relax on the private deck and enjoy the country view. For entertainment, you can access Netflix movies on your laptop, watch Direct TV with over 100 channels, or play classic board games. To stay in touch with the outside world, the cottage is equipped with Wi-Fi. Park your car in an enclosed garage if you need to. Amenities also include a delicious Continental breakfast with Pat’s English scones, a small but growing library, and a CD player with a collection of jazz and classical CD’s.
CENTRAL LOCATION FOR ALL W.MA ATTRACTIONS
Cavalier Cottage is conveniently located to the Mohawk Trail (Route 2) and many outdoor activities: There are great hiking trails, river rafting, tubing, zip line canopy tours, horseback riding, tennis, golf, biking, snow shoeing, rock climbing, downhill and X-country skiing. The beautiful Massachusetts countryside, with its many quaint villages and towns, is also home to a great variety of iconic educational and cultural destinations, including MassMoCa, the Clarke Institute of Art on the Williams College campus, and many more. The area is a four-season vacation destination, from foliage time in the autumn, through ski season into spring hiking time and summer holidays. Time here is sublimely tranquil and peaceful.
A few more special features:
~A new exclusive cottage amenity:
~Tarot by Paris
Now available by appointment: Insightful, intelligent tarot readings by Paris Finley. You can schedule a reading at the cottage for only $35.00. Readings run 30 minutes to an hour.
~Our guests are now eligible for a 10% discount from Zoar Outdoors (just a few miles from the Cottage) for all their great outdoor activities including the very popular zip line canopy tours, kayaking, white water rafting and rock climbing!
~For dogs (and their human companions, too) who love to swim, we offer a map featuring three wonderful river and lake areas.
~Berkshire East ski area, just 15 minutes up Rt. 2 from the cottage, offers our guests $10.00 of each lift pass on a daily basis. Also during ski season the delightful West End Pub in Shelburne Falls provides cottage guests a 10% midweek discount (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) for dinner.
As more guests have visited, many potential guests were unable to come because the dates they wanted were already booked. Because Cavalier Cottage can only accommodate one party of guests at a time, we highly recommend that if your desired dates are available, you secure the space by submitting a deposit, in order to avoid disappointment. Cavalier Cottage, a cottage for all seasons, is perfect for week-long vacations, weekend or mid-week getaways, writer’s retreats, house-hunting visits, and temporary lodging for relocated executives.
We look forward to continuing to share our cozy and comfortable cottage with guests from around the world.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments or questions.
A very warm greeting awaits all who visit Cavalier Cottage.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I have lived in the Pioneer Valley for the past 15 years. Before embarking on this semi-retired passage of my life, I owned and managed a private career school for cosmetology and esthetics (skin care) education and opened the first full service day spa, both Northampton-based. I have been involved in animal rights and animal welfare for many years. Since moving to the Charlemont-Shelburne Falls area, I’ve become acquainted with Leslie and Ed Grinnell, owners of Eddie’s Wheels . Leslie and Ed custom design wheelchairs for disabled companion animals and provide them and their care givers valuable guidance and support. I volunteer at Eddie’s Wheels and have the privilege and opportunity to meet many wonderful dogs and cats who seek wheelchair assistance to regain mobility. Leslie provided me with the inspiration to launch Cavalier Cottage as a place where her out of town clients, both 2 and 4-legged, could spend a night after a fitting for a wheelchair. In addition, I am a major animal person and there are not very many lodgings in the area that permit pets. And it's always a delight to meet new and interesting people. After living in NYC and working for the airline industry when I was single and young and then married for a 15 year stint, this venture now provides me much pleasure as I strive to grow Cavalier Cottage! I look forward to warmly welcoming you to Cavalier Cottage with or without your companion animals.
Why the Owner Chose Charlemont:
This area of Western Massachusetts offers great tranquility, natural beauty, many diverse outdoor, educational and cultural activities. The people of West Country are extraordinarily kind and caring.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
I share space at Cavalier Cottage with my marvellous rescued dogs and cats. Neighbors and other community members have made me feel very welcome and it just feels so right. I enjoy and value the peace and beauty this area provides me.
