This is the smaller of our two guest rooms. It has a full-size bed and like our other room--the Cedar Hill Room-- both are on the 2nd floor. This one is on the west end of the house. Window on the far right ovelooks the rail trail.
Sugar Maple stained glass in the small window
This was made by Kathy's sister Marilyn at a stained-glass class over 35 years ago. This was long before we bought this house with its iconic a giant 175+ year old Sugar Maple Tree would be a part of our life. Nevermind the trail along side too.
And inside you'll find
A nice, paper-back book of all of the works of Emily Dicknison of nearby Amherst.
Bath in the Haydenville Room
Here's a 1879 artistic version of a Bird's Eye View
A Bird's Eye View of Florence Village Center with the train passing by our house. With bikes and pedestrians only going by now, the house doesn't shake anymore.
Ah yes. . . The bike that LIGHTS up at night.
If you are arriving at night, let this be your beacon to alert you that you're at the right place.
A black bear on the trail by our house
Yes, we do have black bears in the Connecticut River Valley. Even in our small city of Northampton--including the village of Florence. We'll see them on occaision, not everyday, but on occaison. You should feel safe to come as they have never caused a problem around town.
The Narrow Bookcase
Behind the entry door in the Haydenville Room can be found a narrow bookcase filled with rare books about railroad history of the various northeast railroads. Over 10 feet of books.
