About Kirby Thwing

My grandparents bough the properties in Hawley in the 1920 and I spent summers in Hawley as a youth and my kids grew up spending vacations in Hawley, and now the grandkids come to visit.

Kirby Thwing purchased this house in 1986

Why Kirby Thwing chose Charlemont

I bought this house for my parents to live in and planned to retire into it when they no longer needed it. I retired while they were still in it and I bought the house of my aunt and uncle, just up the road.

My cousin lives next door to me and just up the road from this rental house. He is a wealth of information about the area and the countryside. He'll be sure to stop by if you are outside.

What makes this house unique

What is unique about this area is its quiet. No stores, no street lights, no stop signs. But, there are plenty of birds, turkeys, moose, bear, deer, rabbits, hawks. You get the idea i think. The stars are very bright at night and the brook can be heard from far-away. Trees, stone walls, ponds abound. Hawley's population is a whopping 320 hearty souls. Just sitting and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature is rejuvenating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lots of Geese and ducks on your partially snow-covered pond. Your wonderful "Flight's End" Retreat is so clean and fresh and peaceful. The brook was a cascade of white water . It was music to our ears each night - Great "White noise" for sleeping. Your fields were bare but there was still lots of snow on the wood roads for skiing. . We saw a moose!!..down on one of the pools in the Deerfield River. What a thrill!! Can't wait until our next visit next fall.

Perfect summer get-away!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your home. House was exactly as listed with everything we could possibly need! Very pretty area. We went white water rafting at Crabapple white water rafting. So much fun! Our only regret was that we could not stay longer.
Thank You!!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We love Flight's End! We visited June 14-20/2014 and enjoyed every minute! It's very clean and "homey". Extremely well equipped and comfortable. We loved watching ducks, geese and Blue Heron on the pond. At night we heard owls. We usually only saw 1 or 2 cars-very peaceful & quiet. A pleasure to do business with owners.
We're telling all our friends about this wonderful retreat and plan on coming back.
Refundable deposit received very quickly.
Thanks so much,
Ty & Sylvia King

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
A few friends and I went to this place over the weekend and fell in love. The place is just perfect for about 8 people or so. With 4 bedrooms, and living room, kitchen, and dinning space it's like going away to a house. The owner gave us full privacy but was within hands reach. The view was breath-taking. With a stream in the back, and a pond right across the house. Perfect fire pit place for a little evening bonfire. It's an amazing place for a get away.
