Enjoy a private and beautifully renovated artists’ farmhouse in the heart of the farmcoast region, across from the Slocum River Reserve. Close to beaches, restaurants, museums, wineries, galleries, bicycling, water sports, state parks and reserves.
This vintage two story 1920's farmhouse was completely renovated in 2014/15 by ceramist Chris Gustin and his wife, painter and sculptor Nancy Train Smith. It is a showcase for the 'handmade'. The tile, ceramics and artwork in the house were made by both local and national artists. My tile studio made all of the ceramic tile in the house, with floors, kitchen, laundry, wood stove area and bathrooms outfitted in beautiful handmade tile. The stoneware dinnerware is from Guadalajara, Mexico. All in all, the house welcomes you to enjoy the beauty of living with handmade objects.
The house is located on three acres of land, which is next door/adjacent to my ceramics studio, gallery and wood burning kiln. It has four bedrooms, three with queen beds and one with a double bed. Three bedrooms are upstairs, one is downstairs. There are two full baths with beautiful walk-in handmade tiled shower stalls, one upstairs and one downstairs.
The downstairs is very open, with kitchen, living room and dining area all open to each other. A large outdoor deck area with grill is off of the back entrance and kitchen, and a patio area complete with a fire pit and outdoor dining table. Landscaping was completed in early summer of 2016, so fresh herbs are available for guests.
The kitchen has all new appliances, with stone countertops and beautiful tile backsplash and cabinetry. It is fully equipped, with pots, pans and a full assortment of dishes and glassware. We provide a small pantry of the staples needed for cooking. There is an expresso coffee maker, as well as the traditional drip maker and Keurig. Enjoy your meals on handmade stoneware dinnerware from Mexico in the dining area that sits eight. With a new Jotul wood stove, fall, winter and spring visits have the extra warmth of a wood fire on cold days and nights.
Disponible para huéspedes
All areas of the house, backyard, patio and deck areas are for the use and enjoyment of our guests. With a coded lockbox, check-in and check-out are easy.

We have a newly installed internet system as of August 11th! It has taken a couple of months to get a new line installed from the street, but we're up and running. It is high speed, so will be excellent for streaming. We do not have a TV, so be advised!! Also note that our area is weak in mobile phone cell coverage.
The house follows a simple set of rules: treat the house and its belongings as if they were yours. Guests are expected to clean dishes and the kitchen area prior to their departure, and to strip the beds of linens for the cleaning service.
The farmhouse is pet free, and no smoking is allowed inside the house.

I'm an artist and teacher, working in ceramics for the past forty years. My wife, Nancy, is a painter and sculptor. We got into airbnb when we bought the farmhouse next to my studio. We spent almost two years doing a complete renovation, and fell in love with the idea of sharing this beautiful house with others. We love to travel, have been all over the world giving teaching workshops and lectures, and understand the enrichment of meeting people from all walks of life. This is our way of giving back a bit, offering a little slice of Southeastern Massachusetts to those who are looking to enjoy the beauty that this part of the midcoast region has to offer.
