Description of the Northampton vacation guesthouse rental
Flower Hill Farm is a 1790 restored farmhouse with an attached artist/writer studio and barn (flower arranging studio). The buildings are surrounded by rambling organic gardens, marvelous sky and landscapes, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing on a twenty-acre hillside (ten acres are in wildlife conservation) six miles west of Northampton, Massachusetts.


We ask our guests to honor the Japanese custom of not wearing shoes inside.

We welcome families and extended stays. Flower Hill Farm is perfect for vacations and getaways. You can rent the entire house and studio which sleep up to 8 adults or take one apartment only which sleeps up to 3.

We do not use pesticides or any chemical fertilizers at Flower Hill Farm.

The second-floor apartment includes a bright bedroom with a queen-sized bed, private bath, small sitting room, studio with single sofa bed, full kitchen, eating nook and a balcony. Every window offers great views. There are two chairs at the top of the stairs so that you may comfortably remove shoes, as we do not wear shoes inside.

Our equally private downstairs apartment is the heart of the farmhouse. It has a queen-sized bed, fireplace, bath, hardwood floors, sitting area with a large fireplace and an eastern wall of windows and door, allowing great views of the sky, gardens and lush hills. A full kitchen. A private outdoor seating area is just steps out the door.
Upon entering the downstairs private entrance, there are chairs to sit and comfortably remove shoes.

The romantic artist/writer studio has high ceilings, beautiful hard wood floors, large glass doors looking out on views and patio garden, a full bed, claw foot tub, W.C., antique table, chairs and kitchenette.

Reviews for this vacation guesthouse rental in Northampton, Massachusetts



Little Rock, AR

Beautiful view!!

April 7, 2009

We recently spent a long weekend at Flower Hill Farms while we visited our daughter in Northampton. The upstairs was perfect for the three of us. The accomodations are very comfortable and quaint. The views from the kitchen table and the porch were just wonderful. Our host Carol was great, very concerned that we were comfortable and had every thing we needed. The location is very peaceful and quiet, but with an easy 15 minute drive to Northampton. It must be very beautiful in the summer and fall, as there are extensive gardens and very large maples on the property. We are planning on returning next fall for another visit.
