"The most accurate description of Hannah's home is IMMEDIATELY COMFORTABLE. It wasn't cluttered - lots of room for our stuff. The huge windows and countless plants brought the outside in and the space felt limitless. The beds and linens were clean and extremely comfortable. Hannah was so helpful and responsive it was like she was on site ....but not. We could relax inside and enjoy the warmth and smell of the wood stove or choose one of the many options for hiking/sightseeing. It was the perfect get-away for our family at Thanksgiving. Thank you, Hannah!!" - Kay H., N.C.


"We had a lovely stay with two families at Hannah’s place. The lay out was such it was great for two groups. Would definitely recommend!" - Klaus

"Hannah’s place is great! Tastefully decorated with all the amenities you need, and the wood stove kept us nice and warm. Plenty of scenic things to do nearby, fall is a great time to visit." - David

"Really cozy house; We enjoyed having our small women's retreat here. Great open living room and kitchen for communal cooking. Beds were super cozy! Trail behind the house was fun to explore. We felt that we needed an extra day to really enjoy all the great parts of the property!"- Kristen

"Perfect location, a charming and cozy interior, super comfortable beds, full stocked kitchen... This place is great! The house is very private in a beautiful forest setting. The deck is perfect for eating outside or watching the sunset. The kitchen has everything you could need, which is rare. It is very close to so many fun things to do and places like Shelburne Falls. It's also minutes from Ashfield lake, the perfect place to spend a summer afternoon. We will absolutely be back next summer!" - Shirley

"This Airbnb is not just a place to stay, it is a very unique experience too. The house is literally in nested in the middle of the forest and you will live amongst all things natural and see the ecosystem of the forest throughout the day. Above and beyond, the host Hanna is very kind and responsive host, and she made sure that our stay was perfect. We can not recommend this home and the force experience enough, and we can not wait to visit again. Thank You Hanna for allowing us to enjoy this place!" - Mahmoud, Saudia Arabia 

"We had a great long weekend at Hannah’s home! The whole property and house has such character and charm! We loved visiting the goats, walking around the garden, exploring the woods and making a campfire in the fire pit. The house feels very spacious with high ceilings and an open layout. The large porch was great for big family meals and just hanging out.
Hannah was extremely fast at responding to any questions we had from booking all the way through our stay, and helpful in giving all the information we needed.
The area is great with a lake nearby, a few small towns within 15 minutes or so and lots of areas for hiking and outdoor activities. It’s a gorgeous area and was very peaceful and quiet.
We would definitely stay again!"
- Dafnah
