Hospitality, History & Creativity Reign Here! Formerly "The Bird's Nest B&B", this keystone property of historic Upper Buckland was once an annex site for the school taught by Mary Lyon (Buckland native and founder of Mt. Holyoke College), later was "The Wayside Inn" when horse and buggy delivered the guests, and present owners have morphed the vintage post & beam barn into a magnificent multi-level studio to fuel the creative genius in you! So many options in how to maximize all this property offers. 3 acres offer gardening, woods and secret fire pit spot nestled down next to the babbling brook. Versatile layout easily creates an in-law or separate owner's apartment offering multi-generational living at its best. Located 5 minutes from the bustling village of Shelburne Falls, in the heart of 4 season recreation, and 1/2 hour +/- to the 5 College area. Property has been well stewarded through the years. Bring your vibrant vision for its next chapter!
