Airbnb Guest Reviews

Magical and mysterious with a sprinkle of strange
Staying here was a delight in so many ways! It was like entering a world of stories. We loved exploring the grounds, and our lodging offered plenty of comfort and curiosities! The beds were super comfortable and the pillows just right. Daffodils were in bloom, and it was a lovely getaway.
This was our fourth stay at Richard's Three Sisters Sanctuary. It was as peaceful as it's ever been. It truly is a beautiful location in all four seasons. During our stay we had about 30" of snow. The house was easy to access, we had plenty of room for parking, and despite all the snow, the sanctuary was open and accessible. My family and I spent many hours wandering through the snowy sanctuary grounds, stopping to admire the natural beauty (and for several snowball fights). Richard and Sara made us feel so at home. Sara was incredibly responsive and we felt in very good hands. The private apartment is a natural extension of the amazing grounds. You can tell a lot of love and thought goes into the space. It's warm, cozy, and lovely to spend time inside reading during the winter. I can't recommend Rich's place enough!
Three Sisters Sanctuary is a unique artistic achievement and a cozy place to stay. An ideal location for contemplative retreat, commemorating lost loved ones, and rest. Thanks to Sarah & Richard for their hospitality and warmth.
Richard and Sara have created such a beautiful space for relaxing and just unwinding among nature and art. We spent most of our time inside and never felt bored. The book collection here is absolutely amazing, one of a kind books. There are beautiful artworks everywhere, some paintings from Richard himself. This is a great place for art inspiration and the garden is a beautiful place to walk around. We enjoyed bird watching in the evening as we were taking a walk around the garden. Peaceful retreat, will be back.
Lovely place. Magical and whimsical with all the comforts of home. Great hikes right nearby. I’ll definitely be back.
We were two couples staying for two nights, and we had a completely wonderful, warm and pleasant stay. This place is one of a kind! And Sara and Richard made it as easy as it could possibly be. We look forward to coming back!
Our 5th stay at Three Sister's Sanctuary and every time is a new and wonderful experience. Richard is a fascinating person to speak with and the work he has done here is amazing. Home away from home...
Amazing place! The suite was roomy and decorated in an amazing way. I really loved the woodwork. The grounds had initially disparate themes that actually integrated together surprisingly well. We enjoyed our stay!
We had a great stay. The location was convenient to many hiking trails, and to the downtown areas of Northampton and Shelburne Falls for shopping and dining. The Sanctuary was a joy and very peaceful in the changing light of morning and night. Sara and Richard were great hosts.

Three Sisters Sanctuary is intended as a place of healing and inspiration. It consists of seven outdoor “rooms”, which include over 200 standing stones, water gardens, sculpture, the Dragon’s Den, and a stone amphitheater. The Sanctuary is also a venue for sharing the creative arts and special events and can be rented in tandem with the apartment. Good Times Stove Company, New England’s largest stove museum and showroom, is also located on the property.

The Sanctuary is conveniently located near several hubs of art, culture, and adventure between the Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires, and is the perfect place to stop on a trip to Vermont for skiing or sightseeing.

Quaint country town centers and general stores are plentiful in the immediate area.

In addition to the Sanctuary, guests will want to explore the abutting D.A.R state forest, a 3,500 acre conservation and recreational area which provides walking trails and a peaceful lake perfect form swimming, kayaking and canoeing. The area can be enjoyed in all four seasons. Your experience here is meant to be inspirational, reconnecting you to art, nature and the joy of life. There are bicycles available for loan.

We are located approximately 30 minutes from the Five College Region- Northampton (Smith College), Amherst (Amherst and Hampshire College, University of Massachusetts at Amherst) and South Hadley (Mount Holyoke College). This area of Western Massachusetts is rich with a myriad of museums, music venues, theaters, and countless other cultural and educational opportunities. Outdoor adventure abounds with zip lines, river rafting, ski resorts, hiking, biking and so much more.
