Le logement

Humble.

The things that are in the apartment are the sorts of things we think important, good books, good coffee, a very clean bathroom, comfortable bed, a hot shower, nice towels and a functional kitchen with organic basics in place.

Safe to say, if it's not in the apartment that is by design. This is a second home for us, there is no microwave. There is no dishwasher either and we think it's perfect as it is but it is not luxurious.

Here is what the space has to offer:

*Flooring is bamboo, with some area rugs. It is not indestructible, leave the furniture where it is.

*Open plan living area with two small bedrooms, large attached porch, fully equipped kitchen.

*Bathroom is stocked with fluffy towels, washcloths, bodywash, shampoo and all other necessities. Hair dryer is in the bathroom dresser. Washer and dryer are two floors down and are meant for the whole house.

*The suite includes a large glassed in porch with a beautiful view of the Mohawk Trail and the town of North Adams. It is furnished with chairs, a cafe table and a love seat. There are knitted afghans to stay cozy during nights of Winter star gazing. The moon rises just across the valley.

Kitchen has fridge, stove, toaster oven, blender, popcorn popper, pots, pans and vintage dishes, flatware, cooking tools, and linens. Purified water in the refrigerator. No dishwasher, no microwave. (please don't make me say it again, make a note of it. If you live by the microwave you won't like us anyway.)

You must ascend one full set of stairs to access the suite. The suite is a second-story walk-up.

Your heat is under your control.

The suite offers excellent wifi, for the area. There is also a radio in the kitchen and the blue tooth speaker in the living room.

We are not suited to families with pre-verbal children.

Accès des voyageurs

Send us a message on the Airbnb platform when you are 90 minutes away from arriving. We absolutely rely on that. If you remember one thing, that should be it. 90 minutes - ninety.

We use digital locks that take pass codes. Every pass code is unique to the user. You will receive yours on the day or your arrival. Once you're gone, the code will be removed. There are no keys to the house, everything is digital.

There are no keys - all access is digital.
Early check-in is not on offer, please don't make things awkward by asking.

Please leave the apartment more or less as you find it.

We cannot subsidize guest's book "borrowing" habits, please leave the books in the suite.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

Flexible but minimal.

Affluent guests expecting hotel-style luxuries will not like us (and we are never happy with them ) The guests who refer to us as "quirky" "colorful" or "opinionated" ignored my efforts to persuade them to book elsewhere. I'm Canadian, I'll never tell you to your face that I think I'd dislike you but if I try to persuade you to cancel - think about it. There are good reasons for this. At our place, there's no microwave and the TV is tiny. You won't be happy and we won't be apologetic. Go to the Porches.

We place a high value on diversity and love meeting people who come backgrounds different to our own. We fully support Airbnb's actions in Charlottesville last year. Our door is closed to the alt-right, always.

We are available via email or the Airbnb app. We receive messages the moment you hit the send button. They always ring through on our phones. Please be considerate in your timing.

Please read Airbnb's article on paying cleaners a living wage. We do that.

Please leave the suite as you found it.

Autres remarques

I've noticed, Airbnb seems to play fast and loose with geography. For that reason, let me remind you, we are in North Adams, MA. We are three blocks away from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.

We work hard to keep the house flowing with happy, positive energy. We love all our guests and want them to feel as though this is their house while they're here. As you can tell by our reviews, we are happy to help you with everything you need and even provide you with a few things you didn't know you needed. Making people happy is fun for us.

So

*Be nice to the animals who live in the neighborhood, we are on the edge of the forest and they consider our yard to be partly theirs, bunnies, skunks, groundhogs, possums, bats, squirrels, bobcats and bears all bounce around from time to time, they're welcome here, they won't bother you. Give them their space. Don't call them "vermin" to our faces. They are our friends.

*While you are our guests, please tell us, right away, about anything that is not to your taste, within reason. The same is true for anything that comes as a surprise or that does not meet your needs while you are still at the house so we can fix it. Be brave, be honest. We're brave, we're honest. It's okay. Can't stress this enough, once you're gone, it's really too late to complain, we're not receptive to it. We try to disclose absolutely everything in the listing to avoid any unpleasant surprises - there's no dishwasher, did I mention that? No microwave either.

*Winter parking restrictions mean we have two parking spaces for guests in total. We have two suites. This means, if you are coming between November and May, you are limited to one vehicle, the smaller the better. We've renovated the house by deconstructing and restoring rooms rather than demolishing, wherever possible. We are sensitive to environmental issues. No need to bring bottled water, there is a purifier in the fridge. If you need to carry water with you on a hike, there is always at least one BPA free water bottle in the suite.

*We have hosted so many wonderful guests and we'd really like for that streak to continue. If we sound weird or difficult to you - there are plenty of other listings nearby. Please choose one.

*We are very straightforward about who we are and what we do. If you are a secret agent and must protect every tiny detail of your life, as top secret information, we will not like each other. On the other hand, if you are visiting because you need a "discrete" hideaway - best to let us know so that we don't have to jump through hoops with Airbnb to have a review revised because we've mentioned your secret, extramarital beloved by name.
(yes, that has happened too.)

Please send us a message on the Airbnb app when you are approximately 90 minutes from arrival. Apart from no-smoking, that is our most important rule.

Check in is 4:00 p.m at the earliest. Guests that need access to the suite between the hours of noon and 4:00 will need to book the night previous to their arrival day.

Please text when you check-out.

No wedding guests. We are not suited to your needs.

In general, we are not comfortable with groups - we're set up well for families but two couples traveling together will find the space tight and, to be frank, we have always found clean-up after these groups to be much more trouble than it's worth. (We're not a hotel and we don't want to be anyone's crash pad or party house) Please choose one of the many, many party friendly whole-house listings available to you where everyone can be happy, there are lots to choose from, you don't lose anything by finding someone who is a great fit for your needs.

Please bear in mind, my hair may be silver but I am not your Mom. You'll need to be a responsible adult to stay here.

À savoir
Le logement comprend des marches ou escaliers - There is one flight of stairs from street level to the apartment.
Pas d'espace de stationnement sur place - In the summer, parking is on the street. In Winter months, we have off street parking in front of the house.
Équipement/service limité - there is no exhaust hood over the stove, frying things can be problematic, we prefer guests stick to light cooking.

Stephanie et Steven sont d’excellents hôtes. En plus d’être disponibles, ils connaissent et aiment leur région et nous ont recommandé plusieurs endroits merveilleux. Le logement est décoré avec goût et comporte un charmant coin de lecture, les lits sont confortables et les hôtes ont pensé à tous les petits besoins des voyageurs. Nous avons eu un très beau séjour!

My mom and I didn’t have an opportunity to meet Steven while we were in North Adams, but Stephanie met us upon our arrival. She’s a lively, engaging and opinionated host. We felt welcomed and well informed. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay (except a microwave!). The beds were comfortable and shower strong. I will note that the house is at the top of a steep hill. Our car handled it just fine in the dry and slightly rainy weather, but I don’t think I would have enjoyed driving up it in the ice or snow!

Réponse de Stephanie And Steven :
Hi Zoe, Thank you so much for the kind words. You are absolutely right the apartment does not have a microwave and thank you for giving me the opportunity to mention it here, since so few guests read the listing where we make particular mention of that. The house is actually on one of North Adams gentler slopes. Our town is built into the sides of two mountain ranges. We chose this house, when we purchased it because, believe it or not, it is on one of the few roads I feel safe driving in Winter. Most houses in North Adams are on a hill one way or the other, the hotels are downtown, on flat roads.

We spent one night here using it as a base to visit museums and do some walking and it was a perfect choice. Stephanie was very thorough and helpful in familiarizing us with the apartment, directions and suggestions. The apartment was clean and warm and the beds very comfortable. In the kitchen we found all we needed for a delicious breakfast-fresh scones, eggs, yogurt, coffee,jams, fruit, etc. There were many resources for planning an exploration of the area and it was a 10 minute walk to town and Mass MoCa. We are happy to recommend apartment.

I felt that staying at Stephanie and Steven's place really conveyed the flavor of North Adams. We loved the decor, the well-appointed kitchen, the thoughtfully placed local foodstuffs in the fridge and the cool touches like design and vintage magazines, and a secret reading nook! Gracious hosts, great communication, and a very accurate description of the apartment made this an excellent Airbnb experience!

Stephanie and Steven’s place is very spacious and homey, with wonderful mid-century furnishings, and other sweet touches. The views are glorious, the beds are comfy, and the kitchen is well equipped. They provided delicious baked goods, coffee, and local apples and eggs. The location, at the base of Mt Greylock, is close to MassMoCA and downtown North Adams. Highly recommend, especially to anyone who appreciates a vintage vibe. And a great value!

Profil utilisateur de Stephanie And Steven

Hi and welcome to North Adams!
Stephanie here : I first signed up on AirBnB when I was looking for a place in Austin for a visit in 2009. Never did manage to connect but had the chance to try again on our honeymoon in 2012. In 2014 we decided to start hosting. We love it!

We are collectively; a writer from Canada married to an American cinema verite filmmaker/photographer who also works in community access television, among other things. Our interests are wide and varied; they include local food, film, the visual and performing arts and permaculture.

When we're on vacation, we enjoy spending our time alone together the most so we tend to be respectful of other people's privacy. We can be chatty but we really do prefer to be off adventuring on our own.

Our favorite travel destination is anywhere we haven't been. We're particularly fond of road trips. We like to explore.

Just one thing more - we are both lifelong non-smokers and we're pretty intolerant when it comes to smoking. We just don't want to be around it at all, not in any way.
