Bed and Breakfast: Starlight Llama
Starlight Llama Solar Bed and Breakfast is Massachusetts’ first solar-powered, off-the-grid, bed and breakfast. Our B&B opened in 2008 so we could showcase the ease of solar-living, provide you with a 'green' getaway, and share our land, our animals and our farm. We are just 5 minutes from town, but light years from the noise, hustle, and hassle of city life.

TripAdvisor names Starlight Llama "GreenLeaders Platinum" in 2013! See the News page for a short story on what this honor means.

There is much to do at Starlight Llama! Hike, bike, snowshoe, walk our trails, and if you'd like, weed a garden, help bring in the hay, or help John pound a few handmade nails in his reproduction Thoreau cabin. This is your getaway, so if you want a slower pace, feel free to sit on the deck with a cup of coffee and your laptop (we have free wi-fi for email checkers) or just relax and watch the llamas graze or see the peacocks walk by. A visit to our llama farm allows you access to 120 acres of our conservation restricted property, land that has been in our family for 6 generations.
Starlight Llama offers three beautiful rooms each decorated with original art and a blend of antique, contemporary and Shaker reproduction furniture. Each of our rooms have a single queen sized bed and their own bathroom. Two rooms have their own private bathroom en suite and have their own private entrance. The third room is the largest, and its private bathroom is located directly across the hall.
Our vegetarian breakfast starts with coffee or an offering of teas, fresh fruit, yogurt and granola followed by delicious Swedish oatmeal or pumpkin-spice pancakes, apple cider French toast, egg dishes compliments of our free-range hens, or seasonal foods from our organic gardens. We can easily accommodate vegan, gluten or dairy-free diets, and please let us know if you have food allergies.
To book your stay call 413-584-1703 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Why no booking online? We like to talk to our guests, answer your questions, be certain that we understand your food allergies or special concerns, and we aim to make your stay a personal experience. No time to call? We respond to emails several times a day so we are easy to reach.
