Located on the shore of Tully Pond, The Writers Retreat is a newly designed 325sqft lake side cottage with breathtaking views of Tully Mountain. This 4-season cottage is built with salvaged barn wood; up-cycled maple floors and custom built furniture and lighting. It's the little sister to The Fishing Cottage. You'll find this intimate home has everything you need to relax, write the next Great American Novel, connect with a lover, or just plain chill. Note: landscaping is a work-in-progress.
“The Writers' Retreat really has everything for a romantic getaway or just a change of scenery while you're working remotely. I stayed here for 5 days with my husband and dog for our first anniversary, and we had a blast. It looks small at first, but it was designed very efficiently and we never felt crowded or cramped. There was plenty of storage for all our stuff so we didn't have to live out of a suitcase, and between the kitchen, bedroom, spacious bathroom, living room area, and huge porch, there was more than enough space for us to pass the time together or apart. The rustic/industrial salvage style is really fun and interesting, and there are unique little touches everywhere. The kayaks, grill, and fire pit are always available and self-serve, which made it easy to stay entertained outdoors. We enjoyed playing cards on the deck, spotting turtles out on the pond, and taking the dog for long walks down the country road or for a dip in the water. At night, we would sit around the fire with a glass of wine and watch the sun set on the pond, then cuddle up on the loveseat and stream a movie (both rooms have smart TVs, and the internet connection was flawless so it was easy to cast anything you want to watch from your phone without having to bring a Chromecast or log in to anything). We had to work remotely for some of our trip, but between the laptop station in the bedroom and the large breakfast bar in the kitchen, we felt as if we each had our own private office - which is honestly more than we get at home! And with views of the water from every seat, we never felt like we were cooped up inside. There were plenty of power outlets all over the house, and on the deck, so you could sit outside all day and still be productive! Patti was always very friendly and helpful if we had a question or ran out of something like salt or coffee. We can't wait to visit again, or maybe try one of the other Sweetwater Stays!”

“I came to Greenfield to do some essential work on a building there and found this airbnb. It proved to be very close to Greenfield and was much better than expected. I plan to return and I strongly recommend this venue to others. I am a host and I pay attention to what other host provide. This space is a good value and the bedroom on the 3rd floor has great morning light!”
