Discover Cavalier Cottage B&B, a pet-friendly home away from your home and an attractive alternative to conventional hotels, motels and B&B’s. We warmly welcome visitors who come to this beautiful area of Western Massachusetts with or without their companion animals. Now in its tenth year, Cavalier Cottage has clearly answered a need for genuinely pet-friendly accommodations. When I opened the cottage in 2012, I could not have imagined the variety of interesting people, and animals, I would meet. Nestled at the base of the Charlemont hills and located on a very quiet country road, Cavalier Cottage is appointed with everything you’ll need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. More than one guest has commented that the cottage and its setting seem to have a special air of tranquility that works a kind of magic: Most pets settle right in with no sense of strangeness, and their human companions find themselves absorbing the atmosphere of peace in their surroundings. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do in this very special corner of New England! The area is a four-season vacation destination, from foliage time in the autumn, through ski season into spring hiking time and summer holidays. Cavalier Cottage is convenient to the scenic Mohawk Trail (Route 2) and many outdoor activities: There are great hiking trails, downhill and X-country skiing, snow shoeing, river rafting, tubing, zip line canopy tours, horseback riding, tennis, golf, biking, and rock climbing. The beautiful Massachusetts countryside, with its many quaint villages and towns, is also home to a great variety of iconic educational and cultural destinations, including MassMoCa, the Clarke Institute of Art and the Williams College Art Museum and many more. Cavalier Cottage is spacious, bright and comfortable. The live-in area is simply but graciously appointed, featuring ceiling to floor windows, oak laminate flooring, a queen size bed with a deluxe plush-firm Simmons mattress, private entrance and private deck. The fully equipped kitchen has an eat-in area with a full size stove and refrigerator (in case you want to cook-in), and a private bathroom. Relax on the private deck and enjoy the country view. For entertainment, you can access Netflix, Amazon, MHZ and Acorn show and movies streaming on the 28 inch flat panel TV, watch DishTV with over 200 channels, or play classic board games. To stay in touch with the outside world, the cottage is equipped with Wi-Fi. Park your car feet away from the cottage entrance. Amenities also include a delicious Continental breakfast of English scones, a small but growing library, and a CD player with a collection of jazz and classical CD’s. As more guests have visited, many potential guests were unable to come because the dates they wanted were already booked. Because Cavalier Cottage can only accommodate one party of guests at a time, we highly recommend that if your desired dates are available, you secure the space by submitting a reservation, in order to avoid disappointment. Cavalier Cottage, a cottage for all seasons, is perfect for week-long vacations, weekend or mid-week getaways, writer’s retreats, house-hunting visits, and temporary lodging for relocated executives. We look forward to continuing to share our cozy and comfortable cottage with guests from around the world. Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments or questions. A very warm greeting awaits all who visit Cavalier Cottage. MORE THAN 2… ~ Choice of two 39'x 80' Japanese futon mattresses or a queen and twin size airbed with air-filled base, both very comfortable. ~ Children 11 and under stay for free. ~ 10% discount gladly offered to military personnel and senior citizens. ~ A 2 night minimum stay is required. Requests for 1 night stays will be accommodated if the cottage is available. There is a $25 single night surcharge.More
