Top-floor, penthouse unit in the historic 1854 Flatiron building. Recently renovated. It's a really cool place to stay... Lot's of privacy... Walk to MCLA, MassMOCA, restaurants, gym, movie theater, grocery stores and many other area attractions
It's the top-floor of one of the oldest flatiron buildings in the United States. In addition, it's the most unique unit within the building. The Unit starts right at the point of where the Flatiron begins! Note: The Unit is located in the downtown area of North Adams. It's a Flatiron (triangular building). There is a street on each side of the Flatiron. It's located among shops and restaurants, etc. At times, it can be a little noisy.
With a queen-size bed, a futon couch bed and a fold-up twin bed available upon request, the Unit can sleep up to 4 people. However, for the purpose of comfort, we strongly recommend no more than 2 individuals.
Existing flatiron buildings in the United States date back to the 1800s with the first built in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The most popular buildings today are the Gooderham Building, built in Toronto in 1892; the English-American building in Atlanta, built in 1897; and the most famous, the Fuller Building of Manhattan, built in 1902. San Francisco, Fort Worth, Chicago and Portland, Oregon, also have fine examples of flatiron architecture. These buildings have been designated as historic landmarks.
Flatiron buildings serve two goals: They employ efficient use of otherwise unused space for residential and/or commercial purposes and give business districts a specific architectural identity.
Surviving flatiron buildings are found on wedge-shaped lots usually in the center of a city's business district or older neighborhoods and offer examples of classic 19th-century style.
Manhattan's Fuller Building is a popular venue for movies, including the comic-book Spiderman series, which used the flatiron as headquarters for the fictional "Daily Bugle" newspaper offices.
All guests will have access to free wireless internet. Other than the front door entrance and stairs, no amenities are shared with other units. In fact, due to the location within the building, the entrance to this unit is away from all other units. It's fun and there's a lot of privacy!!!
Interaction with guests
We will be available to meet-up with guests, provide them with their key and show them the Unit. It would be best if check-in is no later than 6 PM. After that, unless there is an unforseen issue, it's our goal to leave guests alone and ensure lots of privacy. However, always feel free to ask about the area. We'll be happy to answer any and all questions. Thank you!

Hi! We're George and Jonas. George works in managed healthcare throughout MA, NH, VT and VA. However, my true passion/love is to be surrounded by nature. Jonas works within the visual arts field, specifically letter press printing. He is very creative and loves all creations of art. He is a native of Nebraska. But, Jonas loves the Northeast. The Northeast area is amazing all year round. We believe you'll be very happy while visiting the Northern Berkshires.
The location is ideal if you enjoy the arts, dining, museums, live entertainment, nature, skimobiling, skiing, cross country skiing, ice skating, hiking, canoeing and fishing. We absolutely enjoy both the Berkshires and the Green Mountains. We truly believe that once you stay here, you'll never want to leave!
