About Gayle Kennedy
I grew up in Williamstown and even as a child was awed by the beauty of its landscape and seasons. I moved to England 15 years ago, but I have always come back here once a year, even after my family moved away. I bought this house so we could keep coming back.
Gayle Kennedy purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Gayle Kennedy chose Williamstown
I rented this house twice as a vacationer (and learned to book it early!) and fell in love with its uniqueness and coziness. I love being able to walk to downtown Williamstown and the Williams campus, as well as to some of the trails like Pine Cobble. My sons and I also love to walk in the shallow Green River - if you come in the summer, bring a pair of watershoes and hop on in! I'm also hugely in love with the history of the house, and I still have more to learn. It was built in the 1930s by Thomas Hart, an African-American former Williams student who worked at a stone quarry in Pownal, Vermont - hence the house's unique exterior. The Harts rented the house out for years - one of their tenants was an elderly couple that my father remembers shovelling coal for in the early 1960s.

Cozy & Comfortable!
Kitchen is nicely done, great location to walk to town, quiet, clean, big back yard, would definitely stay again!
This is the 3rd time I've stayed at this sweet house in Williamstown. I keep coming back because I know it is comfortable and clean. Everything you need is there, comfortable beds, a/c, I don't normally cook there but I'm sure it is nicely outfitted. The towels are good quality and plentiful. It is on a quiet street so sleeping in is possible. Communications with the owner is always easy and reliable. Hoping to stay there again in 2 years.
A Williamstown find
Exceeded our expectations! Comfortable, tasteful well designed space lovingly restored and cared for. We were only a family of 3 but house has a great upstairs bedroom area that can easily accommodate a larger family. Highly recommend. Thank you to the owners!
We stayed here with our three kids and my mother over Memorial Day weekend. It was perfect for us. We did a bunch of hiking and went to Mass Moca. The towels were so nice and soft. A rare find in house rentals!
Quiet and comfortable cottage

Williamstown is a charming town ,perfect for relaxation. The house is an easy walk to town and the college. There is a lot to do in the area from nature hikes to cultural pursuits . I look forward to visiting the area soon.
Lovely place to stay. It has everything you need.
We enjoyed our stay at this adorable home. It was comfortable and clean and conveniently located to the town. So close to museums, historic areas, hiking trails. Every day was a new adventure. The beds were very comfortable. Definitely highly recommend this home.
