About property manager

I am the manager of Studios at Artist Common, LLC. My first love is being a mother to 6 amazing kids and wife to a very kind and patient man. I started painting in 2011 and it has quickly become a career for me. Besides - it's finally something I can do that STAYS DONE - unlike driving kids, preparing meals, cleaning the house etc.

I love to paint with bright colors, bold strokes and high contrast. I use symbols and abstraction to create signature works that express my love for life and others.

property manager purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why property manager chose Greater Springfield, Franklin County, Mohawk Trail

As mentioned above, I am an artist and mother of 6 who lives in the Boston area. I became involved with the Artist Common project thanks a Utah artist who was searching for an east coast art studio. The former rectory was an integral part of the property and is now being offered as a unique vacation rental. Thank you for helping make this project a success by renting. We especially appreciate the brides and grooms who choose to start their married lives here and also the families and groups who are regularly making memories at Artist Common.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Large, private family gathering, events, weddings, retreats etc. can take place just minutes from the Mass pike at Beautiful Artist Common. Where else can you rent a former church and sleep 22+ overnight guests and hold a private party without breaking the bank?

Very enjoyable getaway. Fun property and area to gather with friends. Access to beautiful hiking trails. House is very well maintained and comfortable. Julia was a gracious person to deal with during the rental process.

Great place for family gatherings

  • 4 of 5

My extended Family and I stayed here for a weekend and it was plenty of space for all 11 of us. My two daughters enjoyed the bunk beds in the "girly room" and enjoyed playing with the doll house and all the toys.

Most beds were fine- king was comfy on the first floor. I found the bed next to the girls bunks was too soft but I've got back issues.

Overall though, very good place for groups.

Wonderful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the property. The space is very relaxing with spacious rooms and lots of amenities. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of room for a large family. The house is also stocked with lots of games, toys and books for the kids. Julia was very helpful and very responsive.

We enjoyed the large yards, fire pit and the spacious front porch with comfortable chairs. There was something to do for the entire family ranging in ages from 2 to 72 years. Great access to the river, hiking trail, children's park as well as the town.

The house and the church are both marvelous and we would definitely recommend this retreat to everyone.

It was just what our group of 10 were looking for. There were plenty of comfortable beds and space for everyone to spread out. We could gather, at the same time , by sitting on the porch or in the large dining room. We hope to rent here again.
