Tucked away on a private forested hilltop overlooking Mass MoCA (3 mins by walk!) 5-10 mins drive to Williams College, MCLA, Williamstown, Clark. Steps to downtown restaurants.

This spacious and private 1-st floor unit has been whimsically restored (yes, fast Wi-Fi & great water pressure!) Chase Hill estate is home to the Floating Tower retreat for immigrant & refugee musicians: your stay enables us to host the artists pro bono!

NOTE: This listing is for the first floor apartment at the Small Mansion of Chase Hill Estate. We do have several other spaces on the property, please inquire in writing about specific availability.

Update: Yes. Our outdoor sauna is up and running (including in the summer), It’s a Finnish wood fired sauna (the “real deal”) and is one of our main perks.


Chase Hill is the largest privately owned property of Freeman Grove Historic District. At its heyday, the Estate contained a state-of-the-art carriage trail and Italian gardens with trees that created a cool, shady respite from summer sun.

Your apartment is located on the first floor of the Small Mansion (a fully detached Victorian with wrap-around porches throughout).

It features panoramic views on Mass MoCA and the city below, a fully outfitted kitchen with high-end appliances, a living room, master bedroom (queen), second bedroom (trundle opening up to 2 single beds), a Jack&Jill bathroom, a separate laundry room and free parking.

We are now in the process of completing a self guided tour of the trees of Chase Hill (some are over 200 years old).

A typical schedule for our guests:

Day 1

Spend the day perusing art at Mass MoCA. Walk about 2 blocks (about 3 mins) from the museum exit and into your mansion on a hill (not a street, we are literally on a privately owned hilltop directly overlooking the museum’s complex. There is a historic reason for it being there— ask us why!)

Unwind a little, then head back downtown (5 minutes) for dinner or drink or both. Come back into your mansion to change into a sauna robe, perhaps go for a shvitz and spend a romantic, relaxing night at the estate.

Days 2 and on…

Enjoy a morning walk on the private carriage trail, taking advantage of scenic views of the city of North Adams from a high point to the West. Enjoy the impressionists at Clark. Drive to see a (Email hidden by Airbnb) e back to North Adams with its vibrant cultural life and food scene. Bring a notebook, or a lover, or a dear friend in need for a getaway, a parent, child, or all of the above!

The guest have access to over 2.5 acres of gardens and lawns on the property, several decks on the porches of both mansions, a private wood fired outdoor sauna.

We are a community of artists and musicians so do not be alarmed if on occasion you encounter a mandolin player or a water color painter on one of the lawns of the estate!

Freeman's Grove Historic District is one of the oldest neighborhoods in North Adams, and was developed in the late 19th century. Today it is mostly known to be the location of Mass MoCA, Porches Inn, Studio 9, Sanford & Kid Antiques, Uno Park and others.

Parking is available in front of the garage towards the middle of the Estate.

Most North Adams attractions (Mass MoCA or anything downtown) are within a very comfortable walking distance (5 minutes or less). The local grocery store and adjacent pharmacies are equally walkable.

Driving is generally the easiest way to travel between towns, i.e. if you want to visit the Clark Institute in Williamstown, or to go hiking.

Important note for extra large parties (weddings at Mass MoCA, family reunions etc.): yes, it is possible to rent out the small mansion in its entirety (both units) depending on dates and availability, please send us an inquiry for more details.
