Accommodations for those longing to be close to nature.
Flower Hill Farm Retreat offers accommodations of rustic simplicity within a 1790 farmhouse and studio, situated on an east facing hillside fifteen minutes west of Northampton, Massachusetts. The perfect escape for those suffering from nature-deficit disorder. Exceptional views along with rambling organic gardens, fields, and forest surround the Flower Hill Farm Retreat and are home to a diverse wildlife habitat. For over fifteen years Carol has welcomed guests from around the world. The antique farmhouse is divided into two very private apartments. Our ‘writing studio’ is between the farmhouse and barn. All three spaces offer air-conditioning, WiFi, and can be private retreats for individuals, or combined and rented as one house for larger parties. Flower Hill Farm has laundry facilities which are available on site by appointment. Please look over our rates and policies page for more information. Any questions?

The downstairs apartment is the antique part of the house. These accommodations offer stunning views through an eastern wall of windows. Off of the living room is a queen bedroom and an additional very small double bedroom. A full bathroom includes a fiberglass bathtub and shower. A simple vegetarian kitchen holds adequate cookware and dishes. Our nightly rate for the downstairs is 210 dollars for up to three guests. The living room fireplace works and may be used seasonally, only on approval, for an extra fee to help with cost of wood. Please ask about the fireplace if it is an important reason you are booking. Due to unforeseen weather we cannot promise ahead that it can be used. The Downstairs can be linked to the Studio (a convenience for larger parties) or be a completely private space.
We have added a dining room that is between the upstairs and downstairs apartments and becomes part of the rental when taking both apartments or the entire retreat. There is an event fee of $150 when guests host an event for more people than the ten staying at the retreat. Small wedding receptions are welcome and rates depend on details.
The upstairs apartment is more modern and offers cozy niches with expansive views. A private front door entrance leads guests up the stairs to their accommodations where chairs sit for easy removal of shoes. There is a bright vegetarian kitchen and dining nook, a small interesting library with seating area, a queen bedroom, and a single sofa-bed placed in an east facing dormer within a narrow room leading to a balcony. The full bathroom includes a fiberglass tub and shower. Nightly rate is 180 dollars for up to two guests.
As you enter through a private front door entrance into the Writer’s Studio you take off your shoes and leave the outside world behind. A private, peaceful, and romantic accommodations. Also perfect for single retreats. The claw-foot tub is out in the room and has a wand but no stand-up shower. There is a ‘Berkeley Ergonomic’ organic queen bed, with a single futon tucked beneath it and a small seating arrangement for light dining. The eastern view is beautiful offering sun and moon rises. Small trees in the terrace garden offer food for birds and butterflies, and beauty and privacy for studio guests.
There is a kettle for boiling water, small French press for coffee, and a small refrigerator, along with dishes and cutlery. The studio is not set up for cooking but fine for simple take-outs or picnic dining. A WC is within the closet under the hidden AC. Nightly rate is 165 dollars for up to two guests. Sorry, bath salts cannot be used. The images here show the winter studio set up. We remove the little desk and floor lamp in the warmer months to have a more open and airy feeling and allow access to the large slider doors.
We hope that you can visit Flower Hill Farm Retreat throughout the seasons. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter each offer unique experiences.
