“During the winter months, I often say I live in a snow globe- a magical, whimsical place filled with delights to the senses. Visit us- I would love to share my winter world with you, where Art and Nature merge!”

–Richard M. Richardson

Gorgeous apartment on gorgeous grounds. Tons of lovely details (and hidden plants in every nook and cranny) to delight the eyes throughout your stay, and of course the art on the grounds is fantastic as well. Couple small things to note are that there’s no table for meals (but the sofas worked well enough for us) and the wifi wasn’t strong enough for work calls if you are working remotely. If those things aren’t dealbreakers for you, as they weren’t for us, then we could not recommend this place more highly!
A really calming respite. The house is clean and has all you need for a comfortable stay. The host(s) are very welcoming and give you privacy and also provide great suggestions for things to do in the area
Richard is a welcoming host, it’s a beautiful property that is clearly a labor of love.
It’s kind of hard to write this place down in a brief review. There is something intangible about it. There is such a sense of calm here. Even in the dead of winter this place was alive. So apparent that you are in a place that has grown and continues to evolve, it’s like the whole sanctuary is a living thing. I was taken by the solace of the place. Richard’s work is a vibrant, playful enchanting thing, and there was even mystery and intrigue about the place. I just can’t describe it. You need to experience it. Sara, his daughter, was an amazing host and made sure we wanted for nothing. Just the right degree of presence. All I know is that I’m coming back and I’m going to do that again and again. I want to experience this place in every season. And with all the beauty and art in western MA, MASS MoCA, Northampton, Shelburn and Turner’s Falls... the food and nightlife, or calm and endless starry nights. I know it might sound trite, but the place is just simply magical.
We had such a wonderful stay at Three Sisters Sanctuary. The space was beautiful, such unique details with an arts & craft vibe. The woodwork is exquisite and the artwork is impressive. The beds were very comfy, as were the couches! Richard & his daughter Sara were incredibly nice, thoughtful & responded quickly to messages and offered us tips on great shopping!
This place is exquisite and powerful. The spaces (indoor and outdoor) are unique and filled with personality and good energy. The town and surrounding towns are stunning. If you are looking for a powerful, grounding getaway…Richard’s sanctuary is an amazing choice. I recommend the sanctuary to anyone and everyone…the land will know what you need and gladly provide it if you spend a little time appreciating the property & soul-filled exhibits on site. The owner himself is incredibly warm, easygoing and respectful of guests’ privacy. However, I highly recommend you speak to him in person to understand the history and natural magic of Three Sisters Sanctuary. Upon checkout, Richard gifted me a spider (spyer?) plant grown on site to enjoy before my return (I will definitely be returning!). This place is the result of following your passions and dreams with the spirit of love and gratitude in your heart…unexplainable and must be felt in person. Just an overall restorative and joyful experience.
Richard’s space was clean, beautiful and in a great location. I would highly recommend this location for anyone, but especially any artist looking for inspiration. I had the pleasure of staying during the winter months and was free to wander without interruption, this allowed me to fully observe the beauty Richard has created. Will def visit again!
Comfortable, cozy, and clean. Richard and his daughter were incredibly thoughtful and kind, and the gardens are beautiful.
Our family of four had a wonderful stay. It was a good location to make short trips to Northampton, MASS MoCA and for skiing. The home and sanctuary are clearly labors of love. Our girls could have spent the whole time exploring the sanctuary and were inspired to create their own artwork after we returned home. The apartment had all we needed, was comfortable, and the hosts left thoughtful touches like some cheeses out for our arrival. We hope to return.
