Experience the beauty of

Hi, my name is Dina and I would love to show you what our vacation property here in Goshen, MA has to offer. Due to the current pandemic and not knowing what summertime will bring I am offering you the option to 'pencil in' your vacation week with a fully refundable deposit of $100.00. If you choose to cancel for any reason I will happily refund your deposit. If by June 15th I am able to host you I will ask for full payment then. Please consider taking advantage of this opportunity and I hope to see you here soon!
*Due to state law at this time I am only able to host you for one month or longer. If you are interested please contact me to discuss options and pricing.
Rest assured that our space is sparkling clean and safe. I understand that traveling may seem daunting right now but this summer, vacationing here with proper social distancing can be healing and restorative. Summertime is lovely and the lake breezes are delightful! That is why I would like to invite you to stay at one of our three cottages that sit on a pristine lake near the Berkshires and the town of Northampton. My family and I live on the property year-round and we carefully screen our guests to ensure this is a harmonious and peaceful place for all. We are here if you need us but respect for your space and privacy is our priority. Our property is open and accepting to all guests, regardless of identity or community. We conscientiously clean all of our cottages thoroughly to ensure your stay will be not only restful but safe as well. If you have questions, don't hesitate to email me.
