If you're looking for quiet & lot's of character then you've found it. My upstairs flat is cozy & airy. PLEASE NOTE: The stairs to my flat are steep & narrow AND we'll share the bathroom! Come enjoy off street parking; a 5 minute walk to the grooviness of downtown GB; a sweet sit on my balcony overlooking the Housatonic River, or take a 25 minute drive to Berkshire culture. I know the area well & can give you many suggestions or leave you alone. My dog Lucy will welcome you then fall asleep!

The space
My place is the upper flat in an old Victorian. Please note the adjective OLD. It is not a sleek, pristine place - there are cracks, odd floors, there are NO locks on the bedroom nor bathroom doors. My apartment is VERY lived in by me. If you want an über clean, streamlined place, try Holiday Inn, you won't find it here : ) What you will find is a cross between an art gallery, thrift store, kids room and yoga studio that has a few old paint drips on the floor, and some marks on the walls and creaking floorboards. I collect things - like suitcases, pins, art, quilts and tiny items and my space reflects that. I make things - dances, muffins, hats, sweaters, cards and my flat reflects that as well. People tell me my place has a great vibe, is colorful and easy to be in. There are STEEP stairs to get to my flat, doable, but steep : )

I am a slightly wacky, sometimes irreverent, often reflective, usually creative, totally honest, teacher performer. I have been coming to the Berkshires as a kid, student, teacher, and performer for years and now live here. I own one set of winter boots and Keen sandals, 2 sets of clogs (Dansko) and tap shoes, 2 pair of crazy high heels, a pair of Puma running shoes, some cool blue suede shoes and brown and white stunning oxfords and a couple of dress shoes that catch more dust than the others combined. Food is a passion and so too is noticing nature. I walk my dog Lucy on the river walk twice a day. It is a lovely meditation for me and perfect place for her to forage and poop. I believe communication is key and like to light a candle everyday.
