Summer is here. Nestled in the woods of enchanting rural Ashfield, this stunning contemporary artsy home offers solitude, serenity and spaciousness. Set off the beaten path in the Berkshire foothills, it is a perfect base for outdoor adventure seekers while still close to towns, rivers, lake and galleries. Inside, cozy up, stay cool, relax, read, enjoy the library, breeze on the porch, take a sauna, spin vinyl, or explore and create through movement, dance, art or music in the dedicated studio.

Mekân
The Sunrise Room is a large bright room, overlooking the forest, at the end of a private hall, with a fridge, a collection of books, and everything you need for a wonderful vacation or retreat. The private bath is located on this private hall.

This is Birch Haven, and we are committed to providing you a unique, comfortable, and—according to your wish and desire—very private experience.

Our home is an art piece packed with original limited edition photographs, vintage relics, cultural artifacts and international oddities. (See photographs and captions for details and descriptions.)

It is also a child-friendly home.

It is a three level structure with a large basement workshop, and the first floor (dedicated for use by guests) and second floor (where hosts will withdraw to) provide ample space to enable guests to have a comfortable and very private stay.

We can discuss your use of the bright skylighted kitchen to prepare meals if you so desire.

Our home is clean, tidy, tastefully decorated, and beautiful. We are a shoes-off household (so bring your slippers or wool socks, if you like).

Custom built in the early 1990's using oak, maple, and cherry woods cut and milled on site, this unique home with nine foot ceilings, adobe walls and tasteful hardwood features offers an inspiring provocative dreamy spaciousness. The kitchen has a lovely skylight window and the living room with fireplace is surrounded by a huge screened in porch with another skylight, and as with the "Sunrise" room the many large windows provide bright sunshine inside and contemplative views to the outside.

There are two bedrooms available, each considered a separate rental and each having a separate Airbnb listing: this one the "Sunrise" bedroom, and the second one the "Butterfly" bedroom (separate listing).

The "Sunrise Room" (looking out over the forest) and the "Butterfly Room" (off the main entry hall) are spacious bedrooms with double beds fitted with country quilts and comforters. Each room has ample space to unpack and store clothing or personal items, a dresser or closets, a desk or table, and a collection of interesting books.

There is also ample space in either or both rooms for an air mattress or other additional floor sleeping arrangements.

We also have a separate Airbnb listing to rent the whole house.

The are several chess sets, marble, checkers, a few board games and playing cards available. There is no TV or cable. Internet is available with wireless throughout the house.

Children's toys and books could be available on request.

The spacious first floor bathroom has a luxurious large shower and this (first floor) bathroom will be exclusively for guests' use.

(The deep soaking luxurious bathtub located on the second floor could be made available upon special request. See photo.)

The house offers many fine architectural details and extensive custom workmanship.

Please note that our space is fragrance free whenever possible. Please refrain from using perfumes, colognes, soaps and shampoos that are scented.

The movement/dance/music studio space is a delight and a blast, whether you choose to use it for reflection or expression, and has a dedicated music system, a balance beam, a yoga fabric swing, a regular swing, and an exercise floor matt.

There is also a large vintage vinyl collection—for hippies or Luddites or mere music connoisseurs.

There is also an infrared sauna for a relaxing salubrious sweat.

Outside you can explore the wonders of the forest, the budding spring and expansive hay fields, and the natural history of New England stone walls, architecture, covered bridges and old farms.

The second highest home in town, the property offers views to 3166 foot Mount Manadnock in New Hampshire.

These explorations outside are complemented by the extensive library and unique artifacts available for contemplation or study inside, your respite from it all where you can nestle up and read, reflect or connect with yourself, a sweetie, or a friend by fireplace or wood stove (winter) or enjoy the huge airy screened in porch.

Ashfield Lake, the Lake House and Elmer's Restaurant are just a few minutes away.

Please note that the driveway to this house is a dirt drive that requires guests pay strict attention to their speed and navigate to avoid the occasional ruts or stones.

Our delightful and reasonably respectful six-year-old is here only part time, and he has more than ample play space on the second floor (away from guests) and outside. Guests may or may not interact with him, and this can be discussed in advance if desired.

Ashfield, Massachusetts, ABD

Ashfield is a small, quiet town, and mostly shuts down after dark. The grand exception being the lovely Ashfield Lake House, offering fine food, pool tables and a tavern atmosphere. Also in Ashfield is Double Edge Theater, providing many excellent productions every season.

Only 15 minutes away is downtown Shelburne Falls, another real working New England town with an arts scene, bowling lanes, theater, restaurants, shops and natural wonders.

There is downhill skiing at Berkshire East (14 mins) and you are an hour from Vermont ski resorts. Snow-shoeing and cross county skiing happen just out the door, and not far from extensive cross-country skiing facilities.

Wildlife is abundant, but elusive, offering naturalists, trackers and photographers the challenge of spotting mammals and birds while roaming about outside the house or exploring the wilder-ness of Bear Swamp conservation area. The house itself is completely private on a dead end country road.

There are no trains, few planes and no automobiles to disturb your solitude, yet in 40 minutes you can be in the heart of the sprawling Five College area of the Connecticut River Pioneer Valley and its abundant restaurants, shops, galleries and historic sites. MASS MOCA, Tanglewood, and many other fine attractions of Western Massachusetts are also about an hour away.

Hi, I'm Keith, a native of western Massachusetts with very deep family ties to the history and culture of the rural hill towns. I grew as a farmer up on our ancestral Egesta Farm in Williamsburg, MA which my family owned for 218 years. Despite having travelled widely, here I am in the gorgeous hills of Ashfield. The town's landscapes, quaint farms, and friendly people drew me here. I also love to swim lakes, and Ashfield has a nice one. Birch Haven is my retreat when I'm alone and I am delighted to see the expansive and inspirational space enjoyed and appreciated by others, as it was designed to be. My passion is writing and photography, and I am also the 2009 Regent's Lecturer in Law & Society at the University of California, Santa Barbara, recognized for my work as a war correspondent, and as a human rights and genocide investigator. My passion for consciousness work has developed over the years as a motivational speaker, workshop facilitator and I am a Grof-certified facilitator of Holotropic Breathwork. Albeit not a quote that he is known for, one of my favorite quotes is by Henry David Thoreau: "Do not read the newspapers." All things pass, so too will i. Blessings keith

Konaklamanız sırasında
Your host will be available for welcoming and orientation. The guest spaces are all on the first floor. When at home, your host will withdraw to the second floor, outdoors or elsewhere, but will be available for any questions or needs.

Your host will keep the wood stove stocked and running (if necessary), and will access the kitchen as needed.

Otherwise, your host (Keith) practices the philosophy of divine non-intervention, allowing guests the measure of privacy they seek and prefer, with a consciousness and sensitivity to affording plenty of personal space for both guests and host(s). Your host is aware that some Airbnb hosts are overbearing (as are many people, who are not attuned to the communications they are part of) and they do not allow their guests the privacy and space that they may be desiring.

There is plentiful parking. Access to the guests quarters are through the easily accessible main entry.

If desired, the fireplace fire can be lighted upon arrangement, and maintained by your host, unless you feel (and are able to demonstrate) competence in interior fire safety and management and seek the additional privacy. Your stay comes with a limited supply of firewood, and any additional wood can be purchased for a small additional fee.
