House on the Hill 
Just down the hill 3 miles from our farm. Close to Greenfield for dinners. Only 3 rooms available so book quickly. You will need a car to get to dinner and the farm. 
Donna and Alain Mollard are the owners. Mention my name and that you are coming to a retreat at our farm.

The Brandt House
A beautiful B&B in a neighborhood just off the main street in Greenfield. It is a beautiful old Victorian home with a large wrap around porch and lovely gardens. Nine lovely rooms which are all different prices between $135 and well over $200. There is an option for a shared bath for $135 with twin beds for budget minded people. Close to downtown so that you can walk to dinner at Hope and Olive, The People's Pint, Magpie, Mesa Verde and more. 
An easy to drive seven miles and 19 minutes from our farm. Mention my name. 

The Inn at Crumpin-Fox in Bernardston
7 miles and 18 minutes from our farm. 
This is a privately owned hotel built in 1979 which was originally built to accommodate the golfers who play at the world renowned CrumpinFox Golf Course nearby. It has just been re-done and Julia and I toured it recently. Convenient to Route 91, it is features a continental breakfast. It is close to Northfield Mt. Hermon (the private prep school) so frequently fills up fast. 
Tell them you are coming to the Kristin Nicholas Knitting Retreat and they will give you a slightly better price. Purchase on Expedia or you will pay more (so says the host). 
Rates are around $159 for a double room weekends. 

The Log Cabin in Leyden
This is a relatively new B&B in a wooded section of Leyden about 5 miles and 12 minutes from our farm. Closer to Brattleboro than Greenfield. Brattleboro offers great restaurants and shopping too. 

Red Roof Inn in Deerfield
A typical motel that has just been updated. Rooms start at $135/night. Close to Yankee Candle, Historic Deerfield, and other tourist destinations.  Fifteen minutes from Webs Yarn Store in Northampton.  
25-30 minutes from our farm. 

The Deerfield Inn in the center of Historic Deerfield
A beautiful antique inn that has just been completely re-done (due to a flood). Lovely place close to Historic Deerfield, Deerfield Academy and Yankee Candle. Rates are $265 per night. 

The Latchis Hotel in nearby Brattleboro, VT. A small hotel built in the 1930's. Downtown location in artsy Brattleboro, VT (home of the most beautiful fabric store in the world - Delectable Mountain and good thrift shops). About 30 minutes from our farm via lovely backroads. Good places to eat and drink in Brattleboro. 

Air BNB has several listings nearby. 
Use this link to look at them: 
Our good friends Chris Coffin and Roland Kinsman own Eden Pond Farm and they offer a room that will sleep 5. Their farm is just over the hill from us about 6 minutes away in Bernardston. If you are coming as a group, it will be a reasonable option. Mention my name when booking. Just off Rt. 91 and just up the hill from Kringle Candle. 

Here are a couple other Air BNB's in the area. If you need help with more places through AirBNB, let me know and I can check out a listing. 

In Leyden. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/3341612?s=vRx-z73Q
I do not know the owners and it looks like there is a minimum stay and cleaning fee but it is a beautiful home and location in Beaver Meadow. 

This Air BNB apartment is in Greenfield looks like an in-town location. It has good reviews. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2578234?s=vRx-z73Q 

I do not suggest The Hampton Inn, Rodeway Inn or the Days Inn in Greenfield. The state of Massachusetts is housing homeless families there. I have had guests not get a good night sleep. Be forewarned. 

On a Budget - this looks to be a reasonable AirBNB place. https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2578234?s=vRx-z73Q
