Lilac Land is a piece of private property near Amherst/Pelham MA. The parents of the current owner, Jim Langley, traveled the world to bring back a total of 306 varieties of Lilacs to plant on acreage next to their home. When we first attended Lilac Land the trees were in full bloom on Mother’s Day weekend. Lately because of climate change they are often delayed two or three weeks. Jim does contact us to keep us informed of the peak display.
We spend Saturday at Shelbourne falls, and the “Flowering Bridge”, glacier formed pot holes in the rocks below the falls, and some lovely, (expensive) boutiques. Another hidden treasure is the Montague Falls Book store; a 3 story+ used book store famed as “the book store you can never find with the books you never need”.
Not far is the “Peace Pagoda”. Then a return to the campground for home cooked dinner or a stop in Northampton for a “restaurant” meal.
Sunday morning to Lilac Land: Groups are permitted to set up picnics within the lush of the blossoms. There are a few tables, and we bring our own to accommodate the food and clients preferred “brunch menu”.
For this lovely weekend getaway, TravelingBnB will come to your home to load you and your trip necessary belongings. The 34’ Class A motor home is fully furnished with all the linen and dishes, staples, supplies that you would normally find in a well appointed rental suite. There are 3 separate queen size beds – one private and two in the living room. Because we are BnB, we prepare the breakfast you have chosen from our Menu prior to the trip. You only need to bring your clothing and any snacks, alcoholic drinks, and or sodas. If you want to prepare your own lunch and dinners, you can bring the “fixin’s” and store them in the refrigerator or underneath the RV in secure containers. Or if you select the meal plan, we also prepare lunch and/or dinner (again from preselected menu options). Your driver/cook will sleep (and cook) in a small 16’ travel trailer towed behind the RV providing the clients the full run of the motor home.
This all inclusive weekend getaway for 3 individuals is $1345 ($1645 with full meal plan).
