The space

The Glow Room at Indian Hollow is a history-rich 1850 post & beam barn, renovated in a light-filled, post modern style.

Imagine getting out of your car, opening the screen door to a big porch that overlooks a leaping mountain brook, deep enough to dunk in. Then pass through the strap-hinged front door and into a glowing pine-panelled great room with giant windows, a big wood stove, 3 Chesterfield couches, dining area and kitchen. You see the forest all around you, but you're inside, ready to unwind.

Upstairs, the loft features the master bedroom (sleeps 2, queen) and a reading/games room (can sleep 2, futon).

Walking into the ell, you pass the bathroom, the 'room with no purpose,' and the guest bedroom (sleeps 2, futon) which opens onto the back deck, where the barbecue is, and the sound of the leaping waters.

In summer the lawn is thick and lush, and you are surrounded with pines, birches, maples and mountains. Chauncey Brook forms the east border & offers a serene and ferny welcome; overlooking it, there's a beautiful firepit surrounded by log benches. The southern border is the Dead Branch Brook with its refreshing plunge pools.

About a 1/4 mile downstream it joins the East Branch of the Westfield River, a federally-designated 'Wild and Scenic River.' We will provide you with maps and information about the area, which contains extraordinary opportunities for picnicking, fishing, hiking, biking, swimming, x-country skiing, snow-shoeing, photography and painting. And being alone, with someone you want to be alone with.

This property is designed to inspire the maximum enjoyment of the 15+ square miles of open space that begins at its doorstep. The Glow Room is a launching pad.

To amplify the quiet and help you unplug, there is no internet service (bring DVDs for your laptop). New cell phones work, but will drop out.

A wonderful place - the cabin is calming, tranquil and rustic, but super stylish. River swimming, apple picking and wood burning stove - the perfect getaway! Thanks Robbie and Kurt for a great stay.

We really enjoyed our stay! No wifi or cell service, so download your maps and come prepared to really disconnect. Very clean, kitchen fully stocked for home cooked meals, and nature’s best just outside your front door. We loved making fires and watching stars at night. I did…

The Glow Room at Indian Hollow is truly a wonderful location and place to stay. As Robbie will tell you "You’ll realize that the best part of the Glow Room is not the Glow Room. It’s the East Branch of the Westfield River." It was a great escape from the hectic city lifestyle t…

I hesitate to say how terrific this cabin is. Mostly because I dont want all of you competing to use it at the same time I want it. This spot is an oasis away from well , everything! It is tranquil and beautiful . If you want to disconnect so you can reconnect this is the spot.

I rented the Glow room because of its proximity to Indian Hollow Campground, where I held my wedding reception. Having a nearby kitchen and clean shower was key to a successful weekend, and the facility was beautiful. It has a rustic/minimalist feel but it also stylish and classy…
