PET-FRIENDLY COUNTRY COTTAGE GETAWAY WITH A DASH OF PANACHE
Apartment, Entire place - East Charlemont, United States
Discover Cavalier Cottage B&B, a pet-friendly home away from your home and an attractive alternative to conventional hotels, motels and B&B’s. We warmly welcome visitors who come to this beautiful and diverse area of Western Massachusetts with or without their companion animals.
Since opening the cottage in January of 2012, I’ve welcomed more guests than I could possibly have predicted or hoped. It seems that Cavalier Cottage has answered a need for truly pet-friendly accommodations. I could tell you stories about the wonderful four-leggeds who’ve enjoyed country walks here, not to mention their terrific two-legged companions. I could not have imagined that I’d meet such a variety of interesting people when I opened the cottage this past winter.
Nestled at the base of the Charlemont hills and located on a very quiet country road, Cavalier Cottage is spacious, bright and comfortable. The live-in area is simply but graciously appointed, featuring ceiling to floor windows, a queen size bed, private entrance and private deck. The fully equipped kitchen has an eat-in area with a full size stove and refrigerator (in case you want to cook-in), and a private bathroom. Relax on the private deck and enjoy the country view. For entertainment, you can access Netflix movies on your laptop, watch Direct TV with over 100 channels, or play classic board games. To stay in touch with the outside world, the cottage is equipped with Wi-Fi. Park your car in an enclosed garage if you need to. Amenities also include a delicious Continental breakfast with Pat’s English scones, a small but growing library, and a CD player with a collection of jazz and classical CD’s.
Cavalier Cottage is conveniently located to the Mohawk Trail (Route 2) and many outdoor activities: There are great hiking trails, river rafting, tubing, zip line canopy tours, horseback riding, tennis, golf, biking, snow shoeing, rock climbing, downhill and X-country skiing. The beautiful Massachusetts countryside, with its many quaint villages and towns, is also home to a great variety of iconic educational and cultural destinations, including MassMoCa, the Clarke Institute of Art on the Williams College campus, and many more. The area is a four-season vacation destination, from foliage time in the autumn, through ski season into spring hiking time and summer holidays. Time here is sublimely tranquil and peaceful.
A few more special features:
~Our guests are now eligible for a 10% discount from Zoar Outdoors (just a few miles from the Cottage) for all their great outdoor activities including the very popular zip line canopy tours, kayaking, white water rafting and rock climbing!
~For dogs (and their human companions, too) who love to swim, we offer a map featuring three wonderful river and lake areas.
~Berkshire East ski area, just 15 minutes up Rt. 2 from the cottage, offers our guests $10.00 of each lift pass on a daily basis.
As more guests have visited, many potential guests were unable to come because the dates they wanted were already booked. Because Cavalier Cottage can only accommodate one party of guests at a time, we highly recommend that if your desired dates are available, you secure the space by submitting a deposit, in order to avoid disappointment. Cavalier Cottage, a cottage for all seasons, is perfect for week-long vacations, weekend or mid-week getaways, writer’s retreats, house-hunting visits, and temporary lodging for relocated executives.
We look forward to continuing to share our cozy and comfortable cottage with guests from around the world.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments or questions.
A very warm greeting awaits all who visit Cavalier Cottage.

A few testimonials from some recent Cottage guests:
GREAT STAY AT CAVALIER COTTAGE
Anna and Adam, New York City
Date of Stay: April 30, 2012
Our stay at Cavalier Cottage exceeded expectations. We arrived after a long drive to an incredibly cozy (but spacious) and well-stocked studio, and felt immediately welcomed and comfortable. Pat greeted us every morning with her own freshly made scones, as well as baked goods from the local bakery. The Cottage is in a great location, with nearby hikes, rafting, restaurants (Gypsy apple is wonderful for a nice night out), Mass Moca, and even a great bowling alley. It was lucky to have such a great place available where we could also bring our dog, who enjoyed the trip just as much as we did :) We'll definitely be returning to the Cottage on our next trip to Western MA.

Our stay met (surpassed) our expectations. Cavalier Cottage was just what I was looking for…a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay for the weekend with our 2 dogs. While Dave participated in the River Rat Canoe Race, I was able to relax and hangout with our dogs and take them on some nice country road walks. Patricia made us feel comfortable because she understand dogs and dog owners. We will stay again next year.
A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY
Susan G Young, Brooklyn, NY
Date of Stay April 11, 2012
I stayed here when bringing my dog to the area to be fitted for a wheelchair. Cavalier Cottage was a wonderful place to return to. It is peaceful, very clean, and has very thoughtful accommodations. The full kitchen is fabulous, the bed is comfortable, and everything is exactly as you'd want it. The location was extremely convenient as well. It was so close to everywhere we wanted to be! Patricia was also extremely gracious and made me and my dog feel very welcome.
CAMBRIDGE FAMILY VISITS THE COTTAGE
Ellie, Carlo & Tony, Cambridge, MA
Date of Stay March 30, 2012
Patricia – thank you for sharing your lovely cottage with us. The location, decor, and price should make this a destination spot for anyone wanting to explore the Mohawk Trail/Shelburne Falls area. We didn’t bring any pets, but still had a great time; although, I would highly recommend Cavalier Cottage to guests with dogs. Thanks again!
CAPE COD COUPLE HAVE GRACIOUS WORDS FOR CC
David & Julie, Cape Cod, MA
Date of Stay March 29, 2012
Friendly, accommodating, welcoming and very, very CLEAN . There are not many B&B’s around I can say I would return to but my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cavalier Cottage. The location is incredible, peaceful & quiet, surrounded by the serenity of the Deerfield River corridor yet a short drive over the bridge & you have all the amenities of an artisan village in Shelburne Falls.The history runs deep and the tranquility of the surrounding mountains is rejuvenating & so much to do.
R & R EQUALS REGENERATION AT THE COTTAGE
Alissa, Boston, MA
Date of Stay March 28, 2012
Patricia was a wonderful host. I was looking for a place to relax and I certainly chose the right one! The house is very quiet, and there are hiking and walking trails nearby. Patricia offered fresh-baked scones for breakfast, and the kitchen was stocked with milk and cereal, tea and coffee, and a few other essentials. I didn’t bring my dog with me this time, but this would be an ideal place for dog owners and I certainly plan to return with my pup in future. The scenery is beautiful, the house is well-stocked and comfortable, and Patricia is a lovely and accommodating host. Highly recommended!
SOLO LADY LIKES THE COTTAGE
Gloria and Fiona (4-legged guest), Greenfield, MA
Date of Stay January 19, 2012
The cottage is clean, full of light and simply decorated. I have stayed in frilly, cutesy, flowery places that felt downright claustrophobic. The full-size kitchen has new appliances and is stocked with everything one could want, from coffee and teas to hot cereal and a variety of fresh fruit. It is located on a country road that offers lovely, peaceful walks past farm houses and woods. I found it convenient to major roads. Probably the most outstanding feature of this charming place is the woman who owns it. She has created a warm and welcome spot for pets and their humans. I brought my new rescue dog Fiona. Pat supplied a crate, offered welcomed advice and some of her homemade dog food when Fiona would not eat. Pat is helpful, generous and never intrusive. Cavalier Cottage is a wonderful place to stay with or without your pets. As a woman who travels alone, I really value privacy, convenience, safety and beautiful countryside. I found it all in this lovely B&B.
CITY FOLK APPROVE OF THE COTTAGE
Wil & Ashley, New York City
Date of Stay February 12, 2012
Everything was excellent! The accommodations were large and spacious and we certainly appreciated the full kitchen. Access to the mountain was convenient. And we really enjoyed the fresh scones!Being from NYC we were looking forward to vacationing in a remote area that was still accessible to local attractions…the cottage was spot-on with hospitality to match. We will definitely be returning and recommending to friends and family who frequent Berkshire East.

Date of Stay January 13, 2012
My husband and I stayed at Pat’s Cavalier Cottage earlier this month. It’s a lovely place and very comfortable. I especially like the kitchen which is clean and stocked with coffee, tea, cereals, and milk. Every morning Pat brings in fresh muffins, scones, and croissants with jam and butter. We travel with our little dachshund and are always looking for clean, odor-free, animal-friendly places. Cavalier Cottage is all this and more. Thank you, Pat. We’ll be up another time soon.
