About Carol

Our life is filled with art and nature... painting, photography (see Flower Hill Farm's Blog), writing and farming/gardening. Our guests often write they leave refreshed and restored from their visit to our humble paradise.

Carol purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Why Carol chose Northampton

We were attracted to the beauty, magic and charm of the landscape and rustic farmhouse. The area is rich in cultural happenings and abounds in creativity and fun. Living close to nature, while minutes from a five college area is rather ideal.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Simple living surrounded by serene beauty and sounds of nature. The sky too is large and breathtaking.

A Truly Exceptional Experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the "studio" room at Flower Hill Farm for three nights and it was just wonderful. Carol is warm and helpful and accommodating - she provided excellent directions and was always accessible if we had questions about things to do/places to eat/sights to see in Williamsburg and Northampton. She's very knowledgeable about the area. The room itself is delightful - lot's of nice details/amenities like an excellent french press and good sized fridge/freezer - and the bed was so comfortable. The property is just gorgeous full of places to explore and sit and take in the sunset/sunrise/stars. You're also minutes away from some great hikes, delicious eats and lovely strolls.
We left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Truly a gem.

restful

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Flower Hill several times, which, in itself, says something about its quality and the environment Carol provides for her guests. Her cozy and rustic antique home is nestled on a hillside, and the view is of gardens, woods, hills, and valleys. We sleep very restfully, and look forward to awakening with the morning light to the sounds and sights of nature.

Although the setting is peaceful, Flower Hill is minutes away from the village of Williamsburg, and is in close proximity to the Berkshires and to the amenities presented by the Five Colleges and towns like Northampton, Easthampton, and Amherst. We highly recommend a stay at this unique and restful place.

The Essence of Flower Hill

  • 5 of 5
Just listen and you will hear the sounds of nature, the sounds of peace.
Just look and you will see shades of green and touches of color painted across the landscape on Flower Hill.
Be quiet and fill your thoughts with the essence of peace.
Be still and release.
The cool mountain air cleanses my thoughts.
The sweet smells of this rich natural landscape nourish my soul.

I am thankful for this time that I have given myself to stop, to notice, to listen, and just be.
I am thankful for what is out there and available to us.
I am thankful for every plant growing in their own way.
I am thankful for the birds singing their gentle sweet songs.
I am thankful for the other living creatures who are here.

If you are in need of time to step away from what clutters your life.
If you are in need of time to stop and listen.
If you are in need of time to breathe.
If you are in need of time to be quiet.
If you are in need of time to be still.
If you are in need of time to be with others.
If you are in need of time to rest, a stay at Flower Hill....a retreat away, will take you to a good place within yourself....and when you leave, you will carry those peaceful thoughts back with you and remember them when the buzz of life takes over again.

Thank you, dear Carol, for sharing nature's prize and your quaint, antique home with us. It was the first time, in a long time, that Jon and I slept solidly throughout the night! We leave rested and recharged..... and we will be back again for more!

Love,
Lynne & Jon

Amazingly beautiful

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two nights at the Flower Hill Farm. Carol was a delight to meet, and the rooms were gorgeous and clean. They had that old-timey New England feel. The view was of Carol's flower garden, which was fantastic, even on the rainy days. The water in the shower was hot with good pressure. The nights were quiet with only maybe two cars driving past the road the house is on. My partner and I drove from here to Niagara Falls for a two night stay, and we both agreed that the highlight of the entire vacation was watching dozens of fireflies in the flower garden at Flower Hill Farm.
