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

The space

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.

History
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.

Function
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.

Identification
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.

Fun Fact
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.

Guest access

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!

Other things to note

Please note that there are many, many things to do within the Berkshires. In addition, scenic Vermont is just a 5 to 10 minute ride away.

George and Jonas were a pleasure to communicate with throughout the booking process. They left clear instructions, and were always available to answer questions. The apartment itself was very clean and bright, with great views of downtown North Adams. They made me feel welcome. Would absolutely recommend booking with them!

Bright, tidy, and comfortable apartment, located right in the heart of North Adams. Easy to find, and parking was no problem. Jonas accommodated us on very short notice, and was very responsive and helpful during check-in. Great place to stay! Strongly recommend.

This place was perfect for our long weekend stay. The apartment is perfectly sized for a couple, is centrally located, and gets great light during the day. Highly recommended!

Great spot! Bed is super comfy and in walking distance to everything! It can be loud at night as it's right in the heart of the restaurants.

This is a cute little apartment in a fantastic location for anyone wanting to spend time at MassMOCA which is an easy 10 minute walk. The hosts communicate very quickly and it was a pleasure to work with them.

George And Jonas User Profile

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!
