Unique in style and sensibility, the Guest House at Field Farm offers an authentic modern art experience in spectacular natural surroundings.
Featuring an unparalleled view of Mt. Greylock, Massachusetts' highest peak, the Guest House at Field Farm is a refreshing change from your usual bed & breakfast. Edwin Goodell, Jr. designed the 1948 Bauhaus-inspired house for Lawrence and Eleanor Bloedel, avid modern art and furniture collectors of the time. Modern artwork adorns the interiors, and the surrounding landscaped gardens boast thirteen sculptures, including works by Richard M. Miller and Herbert Ferber. The house itself is almost a museum of modern furnishings, featuring reproduced Eileen Gray tables and George Nelson saucer pendant lamps in the Master bedroom, and a Noguchi coffee table, Kagan sofas, and a reproduction Eames chair in the living room.
The Guest House is situated in the middle of Field Farm, 316 acres of conserved land with four miles of trails that can be enjoyed by foot or cross-country ski. This patchwork landscape features cropland, pastures, mixed forest, marshes, and a stream and pond. The Folly, a three-bedroom, pinwheel-shaped shingled guest cottage, designed in 1965 by noted modernist architect Ulrich Franzen, overlooks the pond and still contains furnishings designed by Franzen.
