About the Property

One bedroom apartment situated on an 8 acre alpaca farm

Charming one-bedroom apartment on an alpaca farm! Guests are greeted every morning by two alpacas, Beethoven and Sebastian, who will come to your kitchen door, hoping to be fed an apple. The ground level apartment features a large eat-in kitchen, sitting room, cozy study 'nook', bathroom (with laundry facilities) and a separate entrance. High-speed internet and Wi-Fi are available. Beautiful views of the hills from the kitchen, peaceful and quiet.

Whether attending a graduation at one of the area's five colleges or many private schools or simply seeking some quiet time from a hurried existence, a stay at the Owl's Nest will make your visit a memorable one. Visits to West County in the early spring for pancakes and our legendary maple syrup, river rafting and zip line tours in the Summer, Fall festivals in October and Wintertime skiing at the nearby Berkshire East ski slopes are a few other reasons to come our way.

Because we have alpacas and our own wonderful Gt. Pyrenees puppy, we do not allow other animals on the property. We hope, however, that you will enjoy ours!


There is a no smoking policy on the premises. One will want to breathe in the fresh, pure air of this delightful setting and enjoy observing the stars in a perfect black sky at night.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am both a therapist and an artist. Originally a sculptor, I have expanded my creative interests to include spinning my alpacas' fleece and knitting warm and lovely hats. The environment is nurturing and peaceful here, and whoever stays at the Owl's Nest will understand the phrase 'to be of the world, but not of it' while a guest.

Why the Owner Chose Conway, MA, USA:
Visitors almost always comment about 'how quiet' it is at the Owl's Nest. While it feels isolated, it is also within an easy driving distance to several dynamic and fun towns where there is much to entertain one. Guests especially enjoy going to the town of Shelburne Falls, only 4 miles away, where one can stroll through the town, enjoy the historic 'bridge of flowers' browse through art galleries

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A stay at the Owl's Nest will help a visitor remember the simpler delights of life and connect one with the joys of animals. There is nothing finer (or funnier!) than watching an alpaca come to your door (when called, of course!) ready to eat his morning apple. It is equally entertaining to observe the interactions between a large Gt. Pyrenees puppy who also comes to receive a treat because he, too, believes he is an alpaca.
