Freemans Grove Benevolent Society (FGBS) is an 1890s three family tenement house, one of three identical houses on the rather steep North Holden Street. Your Airbnb accommodation is the third floor apartment of the blueish house at the top of the hill. I purchased these three houses in 1999 in condemnable condition: they were never fancy, and are still a little rough. The original intent was just simple apartments for the mill workers.
Of note, you'll find a stereo in the living room under the television for your listening pleasure. We do not subscribe to cable television, but we do get two or three channels from Albany for what that's worth. There is an 1/8" audio plug if you'd like to hear music from your laptop or phone. Set the input on the receiver to "CD" for the connection. There are speakers all throughout the apartment. There is also a Chromecast connection if you use that app. Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need assistance! The floor plan is mostly open (doorless) to accommodate heat circulation during the colder months, sheer curtains on the bedroom. There is a Wooden Sign in the Kitchen "Welcome to the Dragon House" Read more here
Accès des voyageurs
You are welcome to use any space in the third floor apartment. The backdoor, which is the private entrance for the apartment, is accessed via a spiral staircase at the back of the house.

My partner Amanda and I love music (from Phosphorecent to J. Cole and everything in between), good food and small dogs. Amanda is the Assistant Registrar at Williams College. I'm a picture framer and art shipper (former Brooklynite) now residing in North Adams in a duplex with Amanda. I've shuttled art all over the country and sometimes I prefer not to sleep in my truck (hello Airbnb!)
Our travel and hosting style... generally speaking, we love meeting new people and doing fun things... but sometimes we like to keep to ourselves and we understand others feel the same. We operate with a mutual understanding and respect of everyone.
