Bright and spacious, warm and colorful. Two quiet, comfortable, bedrooms with fresh sheets and comfy beds. Fine for children over 6 years of age.

Low allergen environment: no pets, no smoke of any kind and no vaping.

We are on Eastern Daylight Time. Messages should be sent between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. EDT only. We require a heads-up message alerting us to your arrival 90 minutes in advance.

Three adults maximum. Family reunions and wedding guests please book elsewhere.

The space

Flooring is bamboo, with some area rugs.

Open area kitchen, dining and living room.

Bathroom is stocked with fluffy towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo and all other necessities. Hair dryer is in the bathroom dresser. Washer and dryer are two floors down and are meant for the whole house.

The suite includes a large porch furnished with chairs, a cafe table and a loveseat, with a sweeping view of North Adams, the Berkshire Mountains and the Mohawk Trail.

Bathroom is roomy and clean with both a fan and a window for fresh air. Full tub and shower with excellent water pressure, an abundance of towels, all necessities and plenty of hot water.

Kitchen has fridge, stove, toaster oven, blender, popcorn popper, pots, pans and vintage dishes, flatware, cooking tools, and linens. No dishwasher, no microwave.

You must ascend one staircase to access the suite. We are not suitable for those with mobility limitations.

Good cross breezes, no AC, heating is convection/electric and is controlled in the suite.

The TV gets basic cable but it is tiny, smaller than a computer screen. We do offer excellent wifi, fast enough for smooth media streaming, and expect you will be able to make use of the blue tooth speaker in the suite.

Guest access

Send us a message on the Airbnb platform when you are 90 minutes away from arriving. We absolutely rely on that.

We use digital locks that take pass codes. Every pass code is unique to the user. You will receive yours on the day or your arrival. Once you're gone, the code will be removed. There are no keys to the house, everything is digital.

Interaction with guests

Flexible but minimal.

We are always available via email or the Airbnb app. We receive messages the moment you hit the send button. They always ring through on our phones. Please do not call us after midnight or before sunrise EDT.

Before you book you should know, we have stopped hosting wedding parties, wedding guests or any member of a wedding party, including photographers.

"Boys" or "Girls" weekends, concert gangs, bridesmaids, parties, people who are dipping their toes into the Airbnb experience because it's a cool thing to do and it looks like a bargain - no.

Please read Airbnb's article on paying cleaners a living wage. We do that.

Please leave the suite as you found it. Cleaning costs cover things like laundering linens, mopping floors, vacuuming rugs, washing toilets and the bathtub, doing windows, making beds, etc. The cleaning fee does not cover washing dishes or restoring order in the suite. Leave the furniture where it is.

We've set our nightly price low, this is a two bedroom apartment with a self-catered breakfast, full kitchen, private sitting room, dining room and porch for under $100 a night. That is not possible without breaking out the cleaning fee and making that fee realistic.

Other things to note

We work hard to keep the house flowing with happy, positive energy.

So

*Leave the house and the apartment as you found it.

Be nice to the animals who live in the neighborhood, we are on the edge of the forest and they consider our yard to be partly theirs, bunnies, skunks, groundhogs, possums, bats, squirrels, all bounce around from time to time, they're welcome here - same goes for the spiders and ladybugs, please let them live.

Tell us about anything that is not to your tastes, that comes as a surprise or that does not meet your needs while you are still at the house so we can fix it, and be brave, be honest, we're brave, we're honest. It's okay.

We seem to be a particularly good fit for European travelers, our sensibilities mesh well - this might be because of the time Steven spent in France, or because Stephanie's father lived for a decade in Yorkshire. Whatever the reason - that is a fact. Our European guests are always our happiest guests and in return, we love them and we do go out of our way to help them navigate the County.

We have hosted so many wonderful guests and we'd really like for that streak to continue.

No wedding guests. We are not suited to your needs.

In general, we are not comfortable with groups - we're set up well for families but two couples traveling together will find the space tight and, to be frank, we have always found clean-up after these groups to be much more trouble than it's worth. (We're not a hotel and we don't want to be anyone's crash pad or party house) Please choose one of the many, many party friendly whole-house listings available to you where everyone can be happy, there are lots to choose from, you don't lose anything by finding someone who is a great fit for your needs.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - There is one flight of stairs from street level to the apartment.
No parking on property - In the summer, parking is on the street. In Winter months, we have off street parking in front of the house.
Amenity limitations - there is no exhaust hood over the stove, frying things can be problematic, we prefer guests stick to light cooking.

Lovely place with very friendly hosts. Stephanie and Steven are amazing and they showed us all the amenities and history of the place. They also provided us great tips about how to explore the area. Awesome trip!

Stephanie and Steven went above and beyond as hosts. The apartment was nicely decorated and very comfortable. They kept the apartment extremely clean and provided as with much needed amenities. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed a very good night sleep. We really appreciated the eggs, yogurt and pastry that they provided, and the view on the porch in the morning was absolutely stunning. Upon check in, Steven also took the time to introduce the area to us and gave us some fabulous tips and suggestions to try! Thank you Stephanie and Steven for making our stay very special snd memorable. We will definitely consider returning to this property!

Stephanie and Steven's place is perfect for anyone going to Mass MoCA or other area attractions. It's exactly as described. Steven was good enough to get my friend settled while I was running late, which I appreciated. The only thing I'd point out is that the downstairs unit (where I stayed last time) is better stocked in terms of things like teas, spices, etc. Otherwise, it's a quiet, convenient apartment with a porch overlooking the town and hills, and a 10 minute walk to everything downtown.

This apt is very quaint and comfortable, and was a perfect spot for my daughter and me for hikes at Mount Greylock and MassMOCA. Stephanie is a very generous host. I have used AirbNb many times and Stephanie is the first to stock the refrigerator with high-quality breakfast items like organic eggs, milk and Greek yogurt and also provided delicious scones and bread. The beds are new and very comfortable. The kitchen is well organized and the bathroom is stocked with fluffy towels and toiletries and even an first-aid kit and a toothbrush in case you forgot yours. However, if you need a big HD TV for your stay, this will not be your vibe. This was a perfect place for us. Thank you Stephanie!

Response from Stephanie And Steven:
Thanks Alice! It was a pleasure to be your hosts! And thank you for mentioning the TV - we try to make that very clear in the listing but somehow, people miss it. We're an internet household. The TV is strictly a curiosity, a fun toy but not adequate for big TV people - big TV people should choose a different listing.

A great space for a great value. It was very quiet yet close to the center of North Adams. The view from the deck of the mountains was worth the trip. Loved the thick fog in the morning. Hosts were very informative and accommodating. I've always loved the Berkshires since I was a kid and this was a great way to experience it, with a comfortable yet simple living space. A great place for reflection, meditation, or a space to write/do art. Great energy in the space. Would definitely stay again.

We loved our stay at Stephanie and Steven's! They greeted us at check-in, showed us around and chatted for a bit. I really appreciated this as we rarely meet our Airbnb hosts in person. They also left us delicious scones, bread and other breakfast items. This truly made us feel like we were staying at a friend's place. The apartment is wonderful. There is a beautiful view from the porch, and I loved the carefully curated mid century design and accents. The location is perfect for taking in what North Adams and nearby Towns have to offer.

Hi and welcome to North Adams! Stephanie here : I first signed up on AirBnB when I was looking for a place in Austin for a visit in 2009. Never did manage to connect but had the chance to try again on our honeymoon in 2012. In 2014 we decided to start hosting. We love it! We…
