Dancing Bear Guesthouse
Reviewed 25 July 2016

I spent a night with my sister while visiting family in town. The Balcony Room was spacious and comfortable, with a large private bathroom across the hall. The air conditioner and ceiling fan were more than sufficient for the hot July day, and it was a treat to sit on the balcony with a cold beer during a late afternoon thunderstorm. The Inn is on a quiet street within easy walking distance to town. The hosts were very accommodating, and Philip is an excellent cook - breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I will definitely stay there again if I return to the area.

I was pleasantly surprised at my accommodation. It was a restored 19th century home and it was so comfortable. My room was spacious and the bathroom was also big enough for one. Both were very clean and well appointed with plenty of linen. The air conditioner was also useful on occasion. The location was excellent, well within walking distance of nearly everything in the town. Philip was an excellent host, providing wonderful conversation throughout. He was happy to answer any queries and nothing was too much trouble. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to anyone and would not hesitate to return should the chance arise.

Room Tip: All rooms have air conditioning and are generally quiet.

My sister and I enjoyed a one-night visit in this "perfect" B and B. It is a lovely Victorian home! We enjoyed chatting with the hosts Phillip and Edith and the fellow guests over a delicious breakfast of fresh fruits and home-cooked pastries / crepes. Very reasonable price, great location with a walk to town and a very "Norman Rockwell-esque" setting in Shelburne Falls. We plan to return!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the balcony room but all seemed quite comfortable, clean and well-appointed.

Stacked up magazines and books, vintage furniture worn around the edges, treasures from exotic vacation spots scattered about the rooms and a very warm welcome. Excellent breakfast crepes made by the world traveler, Phillip, our host. We didn't meet Edith, Phillips wife,, but saw her wonderful artwork. Comfortable (twin) beds. This is not your typical stuffy high end antique decorated B&B, this is a lived in home, not a museum.

Stayed: June 2016, travelled as a couple

I stayed at the Dancing Bear B & B while taking a class at Vavstuga in Shelburne Falls (the Dancing Bear is a short walk to the village and to the weaving studio). The room was clean, quiet and very comfortable and Philip and Edith were wonderful hosts. I will certainly stay there in the future if I am in Shelburne Falls !
