CHAPIN'S SUGAR HILL FARM

Chesterfield Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 season Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

This 2,200 sq.ft. Cape owned by our family since 1931, is situated on 50 wooded acres in the beautiful Berkshire Hills of Western MA, 2 hr west of Boston/20 min west of Northampton.

Built by Lt. Joseph Rhoades in 1792 & kept in his family until 1931, the 1st floor of this restored farmhouse features two large living rooms and a large bedroom. Upstairs, there are 2 large bedrooms with wide plank floors. Each has a king bed & one has a master bath. All have original hand cut peg, post & beams exposed. The house has a new fully equipped kitchen and adjoining dining room which features walls paneled with “King’s Boards”. There is a new bathroom along with a new laundry room with washer and dryer.

There is a large yard featuring large Sugar Maples lining the front lawn and 2 large side lawns. One side has a comfortable open porch and a picnic table. There is a large hayfield behind the house along with our 2 old barns. At night, the hayfields allow for a “big sky” stargazing view.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed

SUGAR HILL FARM

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of the house indicate charm, history, and quaintness. Truthfully though,as cliche as it may sound, the pictures don't quite do this special house justice. Upon entering the house, one is greeted with an immediate sense of warmness that only a house that is well loved for many years exudes.

The house was built in 1792, and many original features such as hand hewn post/beams (scattered with axe marks) and plank flooring exist in fine detail.

My partner and I are both interested in history, and so, the house was an especially perfect retreat. As we surveyed the two adjoining living rooms, with a fire roaring briskly (we only used one of THREE fireplaces on our trip), one could easily imagine the original inhabitants living their lives in the MA countryside....stoking a fire, preparing meals, discussing the ramifications of the recently ended revolutionary war, gossiping about Washington's "goodwill tour" of 1791, or simply chopping timber. The feel of the house was one of a "living museum".

I have stayed in many home away properties, and I also have been (and stayed in) quite a few historic homes, but the Chapin's Sugar Hill Farm ranks at the top. Cozy, warm, welcoming, and easy are the adjectives that spring to mind. A true gem for the Holiday season!

Also, a note on the owners: Chip was an absolute pleasure to work with. He provided us with invaluable information not only in regards to the house, but the chesterfield (and beyond) area in general. Fantastic!

Highly highly recommended.

PERFECT FARMHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this lovely farmhouse for ten days and we would have been very happy staying there another ten more. The house itself is simple and beautiful, with the charm you can only get from an old, well cared for house. It equipped with everything you need for a nice country vacation, convenient to great lakes for swimming and kayaking, hiking,biking and fun cultural events in Northampton. Honestly, you don't even need to leave the house. There is a gigantic lawn, a hammock, and entrancing trails right from the property.

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
The house is great -- comfy, spacious, cozy. We had 8 people plus an infant - with the three bedrooms plus two futons, everyone slept comfortably (except the baby, but that had nothing to do with the house. :-) )

We had two of the fireplaces going at the same time which was such a treat. and the property is beautiful - we went hiking and sledding right from the house.

The owners were really helpful and great to work with. We will stay here again for sure!
