July 7, 2015- 5-star rating

This is an ideal location to gather your whole family

together for a weekend getaway or to celebrate the special

events in your family life. The Manor is ideal to house

a small wedding party and the lawn can be the setting

for an open-air wedding ceremony. It can also host a

business meeting, staff retreat or company gathering.

There are many comfortable spots inside the house or

find one outside on the porch overlooking the verdant

lawn and tall trees. You can also take a walk in the historic

cemetery. The gate is in the hedges below the garage. Stroll

downtown and explore the streets of a Victorian industrial town.

The Ashuwillticook bike path heads south for 11 miles

eventually following the Hoosic River, crossing through wetland and skirting around Cheshire Reservoir. It’s mostly flat because it follows the former railroad route.

In town there are a few small museums and historic sites:

The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, Quaker Meeting

House, Thunderbolt Ski Museum, New England Holocaust

Institute Museum, and William McKinley Statue.

About Jill Staffin

A member of the local community my entire life, I am honored to work with the amazing team that has revitalized this 1800's historical property. My husband, David and I live just a few miles away where we have raised our three children. Each of us has a deep affinity for this incredible property. We welcome you!!!

Jill Staffin purchased this house in 1880

Why Jill Staffin chose Adams

The Manor is an elegant home built in the 1800's with a beautiful story and rich history. It offers amazing architecture and style with all modern conveniences you might desire. Once encompassed within its walls you will feel its unique small town warmth which adds significantly to its charm. Located in Western Massachusetts the surrounding towns provide wonderful cultural venues and many outdoor activities. The Manor rests at the base of Mt. Greylock, the tallest mountain in Massachusetts, which not only provides a wonderful backdrop but also the promise of scenic hikes or drives; with wildlife an added bonus. We look forward to your visit and appreciate your consideration!

What makes this house unique

The Manor offers a beautifully designed and large front porch which overlooks streets of this old, industrial town and an sunroom accessible from an inside hall...Both perfect spots to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening Chardonnay...or perhaps just a good book.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in the manor. The pictures don't do it full justice. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out, or sit together! Especially loved the upstairs enclosed porch area. You could not go anywhere and have a wonderful time, or use it for a base of operations for exploring the Berkshires.

Elegance in a Berkshire Manor

  • 5 of 5

This elegant, wonderful manor with its large spacious rooms, modern kitchen, several bedrooms, wide comfy wrap around porch and classic design was the perfect place for our college physical education majors' annual reunion. It was centrally located for us and yet private and offered quick access to activities and restaurants. We absolutely loved our stay here and filled it with our laughter, stories and singing. The chimes serenading us were the frosting on the cake! Thank you!

Wonderful home.

We enjoyed staying at the manor. A group of women for a long weekend. Plenty of space for all of us. Bedrooms were very comfortable, all the rooms are very nice. Beautiful old historic house in a lovely setting. Would love to go back again.
