We came into Shelburne Falls with 7 adults and 5 kids in order to attend a wedding about 20 miles away. Didn't get there until late, but our hosts met us in the driveway, gave us a great tour of the house, and were simply wonderful to meet. The house is so cool. We had one group with the baby on the first floor, my wife and I on the second floor, and a third family on the third floor! By the way, we didn't fill up the house. Construction is so cool all the guys spent time going over the beams and roof (especially the roof), and we even tried out how to make slate shingles on our own (check out Youtube). We lucked out entirely when we found out that River Fest was going on the next morning. We all walked from the house to downtown (about a block, fantastic location!), toured the flower bridge, the town and the river. Another wonderful time, then back home to a sit down and play in the back yard that kept everyone happy. River Fest is very cool, and the results of the glacial migration which created the river itself are unbelieveable to view. We all got our pictures taken with the river at our backs! One feature of the house we still talk about is the kitchen/living room area on the second floor. We all sat there 2 evenings and visited and played. For 3 days none of us ever had a TV on or even the radio. Just cool and comfortable. Thanks for everything, we loved it.
