A two hundred year old Dutch Colonial farmhouse on a twenty-five acre working sheep and berry farm nestled in the hills of Western Massachusetts. Enjoy this Bed and Breakfast by reading by the parlor stove, putting your feet up on the fieldstone porch with the views of the fields, rolling hills and gardens. You can enjoy the hot tub in it's enclosed gazebo, or have tea by the kitchen stove. It's no wonder that this B&B has a long list of fans.

Twelve suggestions for how to spend a night, week-end, or a week at Cumworth Farm Bed and Breakfast.

Suggestion 1: Sit by the hearths and read a book.

Suggestion 2: Take a hike along the nearby paths in the woods, or hike down to Chesterfield Gorge.

Suggestion 4: Swim and picnic at one of the many nearby ponds or lakes.

Suggestion 5: Relax in the hot tub and watch the stars.

Suggestion 6: Enjoy Ed's wonderful pancake and sausage breakfasts-- with his own maple syrup made on the farm.

Suggestion 7: Drive into Northampton, only 30 minutes away, and enjoy its lively galleries and boutiques, and a plentiful offering of fine restaurants.

Suggestion 8: Explore the historic William Cullen Bryant Homestead just down the road, or visit historic Old Deerfield, only a half hour away.
