We loved our stay at the cottage and Chloe discovered that she is a sled dog! All the best for the New Year and we hope to stay again!

Beautiful, comfortable apartment with private entrance, in the country/woods but only a few minutes drive to Shelburne Falls village and bridge of flowers . Nice combination bedroom/living room, separate full kitchen, private bath. Bathroom is small but fully functional and the rest of the place was larger than we expected and nicely decorated. Patricia is a lovely host, helpful and available but giving privacy also. Being able to travel with our dog Gracie was wonderful. Highly recommended!

I spent some lovely evening/night at the Cavalier Cottage with my dog, Tulla. Pat has a lovely home in the woods, and I loved the setting. I sat on the deck with Tulla and had a nice cup of tea and watched the sun go down. The cottage has everything you could need! Warm scones for breakfast were yummy. Shelbourne Falls is such a friendly town. Will definitely be returning. THANKS PAT!!

Perfect setup for me and my 3 dogs.

This was just a perfect, cozy place for me and my 3 dogs to relax. It is walk out to an area for the dogs, includes kitchen, TV, living and sleeping areas and is private. It was perfect for me and my needs.

Everything was perfect! Pat is extremely welcoming without being at all intrusive. The cottage is very attractive and comfortable. We made use of the front patio also. The area is gorgeous with plenty to do. Our dog settled right in. We only wished that we could stay longer! We all had a wonderful time! Thank you!

Beautiful and Quiet! We brought our 50lb lab/pit mix and were made to feel right at home! This is a great spot, far enough away from it all yet close enough to enjoy tubing or kayaking on the river and take a walk at the Bridge of Flowers.

Chevy & Company weekend getaway
A quaint little cottage tucked in the Mohawk Trail. We were welcomed with open arms and so was Chevy our (blue nose pit bull) old man. He enjoyed the smooth crisp bowl of cold water awaiting him when he arrived with his dog biscuit. He enjoyed his special place to go explore in the outside yard. He felt at home in no time. We also were spoiled when we walked into the spacious rooms. The room was a beautiful blue and was decorated with such care, We enjoyed the assortment of coffee’s and teas. The full kitchen was appreciated, we had a microwave and coffee maker a full stove and fridge. Each morning we got fresh scones hot with butter and assortment of jams with fresh squeezed OJ. We truly enjoyed our pet friends next door greeting us when we came and went. They were sweet dogs. I would recommend this spot to anyone needing a quiet retreat.

Great place to stay right off the Mohawk Trail

Clean and comfortable reasonably priced. Best of all if you have a dog bring them along with you, you’ll like the Cavalier Cottage. Scones and orange juice each morning.

If you are looking for a pet-friendly place to stay, this is it! We found it very easy to get to Brattleboro from here, and the area is extremely scenic. Nearly every road passes by a winding creek, there are lovely little shops and restaurants in town, and the Cavalier Cottage itself was well maintained. Plus Patricia makes the most delicious mini-scones in the morning!”
Patricia, thank you again for allowing us to stay, and for assisting us in letting Gimlet out so we could do some hiking and long drives with Bruce! Your Shelburne Falls dinner recommendation (the Hearty Eats) was also delicious.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Cavalier Cottage. We had dogs previously but now it was just us. My husband is in a wheelchair and we were able to navigate easily the 3 minor step changes between the carport and the living area. The living room windows opened up 3 feet and the fresh country air filled the kitchen and living area, making sleeping a great experience. The kitchen was well stocked, which made cooking evening and morning meals a pleasure. Quiet of this kind is hard to come by. We recommend it.

We had a great experience at Cavalier Cottage. It’s located in a very quite road right off Mohawk trail. Patricia is such a sweet and professional host. She greeted us upon our arrival and showed us around the place. The apartment studio is very cozy yet spacious. Comfortable bed and pillows. Fully equipped kitchen. She made us these delicious scones and OJ every morning. Thank you Cavalier Cottage for making our mini vacation very relaxing and smooth

Charming rental in a beautiful setting
We recently needed a room near a wedding we were attending in Charlemont, Ma. This place was perfect. The Cavalier Cottage was charming, private, and very clean. Our host was lovely, very friendly and helpful. We had a large bedroom with sitting area, full kitchen with everything anyone would need. It was located right off of Rt. 2 and near the town of Charlemont. We would return in a minute.

Beautiful, peaceful getaway in a great location
Loved my stay at Cavalier Cottage! The decor is warm and cozy, with big windows up front that overlook the beautiful garden. In the mornings, I was treated to Patricia’s homemade British scones with jam and fresh orange juice. I spent one evening sitting on the porch, sheltered from the rain, enjoying a glass of wine and a book. I had a great time exploring the area with my dog — the cottage is only about 10 minutes from the center of Shelburne Falls, and there are plenty of state parks with hiking trails nearby. Patricia also made my little companion feel completely welcome. She’s a true dog lover and a gracious host.

She loves four legged guests! We wanted to see the Berkshires area and chose Shelburne Falls for a couple of days. Having a Cavalier, I was drawn to Patricia’s home. The accommodations were roomy and in a very quiet location with a road that was virtually empty allowing safe walks. The town was close by with all the comforts. Patricia was a gracious host who provided a great start to the day with scones and a great love for the 4 legged guest. Thumbs up!

In addition to loving dogs, Pat is a charming host. This was our first time traveling to an Airbnb with our dog, and Pat provides a comfortable, pretty spot for canines and canine lovers. It’s a pretty secluded spot, nice for walking with your four-legged friend. You’re only minutes away from downtown Shelburne Falls, a small, artsy town. Make sure to visit the Bridge of Flowers.

Delightful cottage with all the amenities….both people & pet friendly!
Great location….just off the main Road yet nice and private….peaceful. We stayed a full week and none of us were ready to go home!!! We were able to cook if we wanted in the kitchen in at the cottage. The owner, Patricia, is very accommodating Just a delightful place to stay….what you see is what you get, nothing less than the tour you view online! Pet and people friendly….wonderful to wake up to freshly made and warm scones and orange juice! Great location! Thank you Cavalier Cottage B&B for making our week’s stay so comfortable! We hope to return soon!

We had a lovely weekend stay! Patricia was a wonderful and accommodating host, who greeted us upon arrival and gave us a thorough tour of the space. The breakfast scones and orange juice each morning were a great touch. The area is beautiful and we loved the easy access to Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.

If you’re looking for pet-friendly accommodation in Western Mass– you’ve found it. Patricia is a great host and was very accommodating for us and our smaller furry family members.
Thanks for a great visit with our pups– we appreciated being able to take them with us for our weekend trip! Your home is quite tranquil and made us wish for proximity to woods/creek for our next home.

Perfect dog vacation
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
I was playing for a nearby festival and was so pleased to find Cavalier Cottage. It can be very hard to find a pet-friendly, affordable, quiet place that will rent for a short 2 night stay on a holiday weekend, much less one in such a beautiful, idyllic location. Bonus, there is ample breakfast provided and cruelty free cleaning products. My dogs loved being able to lounge on the couch, the couch being covered with a supplied cover to keep things nice. It’s really a lovely place and Patricia is a lovely person.

My husband and I needed pet-friendly accomodations near Shelburne Falls, MA because we had a morning appointment with Eddie’s Wheels for Pets. The staff at Eddie’s told us about Cavalier Cottage. Humans and dogs alike were greeted by the owner upon arrival who made sure we were well aware of the layout and amenities of the cottage and, was happy to offer suggestions for dining and area attractions. A photo of our dogs was taken to add to the 4-legged guest section of the website. In the morning, we were treated to warm scones with a variety of jams and fresh orange juice. Although our stay was brief, I would definitely stay again if back in the area, and would recommend to others. The charm of the cottage and graciousness of the owner far exceed the generic experience of staying at a chain hotel.

Perfect set up for a comfortable stay with our dog Ellie.
We recently spent three nights at the Cavalier Cottage as it is close to our new home and we needed a place to stay before we moved in. The cottage was close to shopping, restaurants and wonderful hiking spots. We loved the comfort of the cottage, especially having a fully equipped kitchen and deck to sit outside. The cottage was clean and had all the amenities of home. Pat was so kind and helpful and Ellie enjoyed the freedom to walk outside and meet Pat’s lovely Cavaliers. We would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone staying in the area.

A Canine Vacation Gem
Once again, for the third time in the past three years, Alexander,Pete and I drove the most scenic anywhere (RT 2) to our favorite vacation destination,Cavalier Cottage in Charlemont, MA, considered to be our vacation home away from home. Our ten legs were greeted by Patricia Butterfield, the most engaging and delightful innkeeper anywhere. Patricia’s dog friendly cabin nestled in the midst of the Mohawk Trail, which afforded my precocious Scottish terriers a boundless bonanza of trails to explore and small creatures to stalk. As always our stay was too short, but Patricia’s morning orange juice and freshly baked scones, and her delightful personality will continue to allure us time and time again. In fact, we plan to return in early September.

We enjoyed a mini vacation at this beautiful cottage retreat with our golden retriever Ivy Grace. Ivy Grace in in a wheelchair and she was able to manouver with no problem inside or out. Our hostess was wonderful and served the most delicious scones fresh from her oven in the morning. She was so quiet we forgot she was even on the premises. The cottage is extremely clean and very well maintained. We will definitely stay there again.

Cavalier Cottage: A quiet, welcoming break from All The Rest of It.
Cavalier Cottage offers an immaculate, spotless, fully-equipped two-room “home base” for you and your pet(s). A little way up a quiet country road (directly off, and a straight line from, Rte. 2); a gracious, welcoming owner to greet you and make wonderful scones/biscuits for you every morning; a marvelous queen bed; full roomy kitchen with all the amenities. Though it may be a cliché to say so, we were reluctant to return to our “real life” when our stay ended. Highest possible recommendation.

The cottage was lovely. Its spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Its on a very quiet country road. Extremely welcoming of my 100 pound pup. There are two rooms a large living area with a king size bed and large sitting area and a large kitchen. Patricia was gracious and welcoming. Truly worth the trip.
lovely B & B for me and my pup

We had a great time at Patricia’s BnB. It is really calm and relaxing. We had a nice hike in the Mohawk Trail State Forest. We also enjoyed a dinner and drink in cute places in Shelburne Falls. I would recommend it !

Decided to take a last minute adventure to the Berkshires with my husband, two boys, and two beagles. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the Cavalier Cottage tucked away off a beautiful mountainside road. Patricia was very hospitable, and more than kind to our pets. Each morning we were served warm scones and fresh orange juice, made for the perfect last minute getaway. We hope to visit again!

We had a wonderful stay at Cavalier Cottage. My fiancé and I wanted a short getaway and were very happy to find a place we could easily bring our dog. Unfortunately, we had a bit of bad weather but the surrounding area seems like it would be beautiful in the summer. There are also great winter hiking, skiing, and snow tubing options nearby and board games, tv access, and hot chocolate in the cottage for a cozy night in! We also visited the flagship Yankee Candle store nearby which was lots of fun. Finally, we really enjoyed the warm scones for breakfast, served with a great selection of jams. Overall a very enjoyable stay! Your scones were delicious and something to look forward to every morning. Thank you for making our stay exceedingly comfortable and cozy.
