I really enjoyed my stay here, the rooms were clean and cozy, breakfast was delicious, and the animals were pretty awesome. I didn't feel like the weather was good for outdoor stuff, there wasn't any snow on the ground. I also didn't realize there was no TV or internet available, which I totally live on!
But John and Dee were super accommodating and helped me out when I first got there at night a whole bunch, way out of what was required of them. And when it was so cold that the llamas weren't coming out voluntarily, John got them out with some grain. Also I was staying alone, and John hung out and chatted with me while I ate breakfast both mornings, and I really enjoyed his company.
I recommend this to people who like staying off the beaten path, want something cozy and unlike regular hotels, and generally can make activities for themselves. And for people who really enjoy homemade breakfasts!!

- This bed and breakfast is powered by the sun! We are Massachusetts first solar-powered off-grid B&B. Located on a llama farm, we feel remote, but are just 12 minutes from Smith College and downtown Northampton. Our vegetarian breakfasts feature fresh organic food from our gardens, eggs from our free-range hens, and we can easily accommodate vegan or gluten-free diets. Enjoy your morning coffee while watching the llamas graze or the peacocks meandering through the yard. We are smoke-free in the buildings and on the grounds, and offer free parking, a place to put your bikes, kayaks, or skis. Kids over the age of 12 are welcome. Sorry, your pets will upset the llamas. ... more less
