Dancing Bear Guesthouse
Reviewed 7 August 2011

We stayed at this lovely Victorian, two-storied Bed and Breakfast for one night in early June this year. Our room on the ground floor was small but was clean, well decorated and the beds were comfortable. Edith and Philip were very welcoming and friendly innkeepers and the delicious breakfast served in the dining area was an excellent start to the day.

Stopped here after riding my bicycle 77 miles... I was tired. The staff (Phillip) made me feel at home immediately, I got a very nice room with a balcony AND he made my breakfast to order with homemade bread and fresh picked berries. I had an excellent night's sleep and his wireless worked. Who could ask for more?

Just left Dancing Bear. Perfect location for walking into town. We had 3 rooms and they were all very comfortable. Breakfast was awesome! Thanks for such great hospitality.

Friendly, helpful, and interesting hosts who made us feel welcome the moment we arrived. A warm cozy house with clean, comfortable rooms, nicely decorated, and in a great location, just a few blocks from great restaurants and the other attractions of Shelburne Falls. Best of all, the breakfast was AMAZING! Unbelievably delicious, home recipes made from scratch, using fresh food from local farms . . . truly memorable!

Just came back from the Dancing Bear guesthouse, having traveled to the area for ziplining with Zoar Outdoor. Shelburne Falls is a wonderful little artsy town- and the Dancing Bear was the perfect home base to explore the area. The house itself has so much history and character, having been built in the mid-1800's. Our room with a little balcony was in walking distance to all on a quiet street- and the breakfast was out of this world! It was wonderful talking to our host, Philip, as he prepared the most amazing warm sticky buns, creative little egg terrines and fresh bread just for us. We loved it!!!

Shelburne Falls is one of the most wonderful towns we stopped by in all of our trip around New England. While we were there we caught a movie at 'Pothole pictures' in the Townhall, gawped at the waterfall and Glacial potholes and strolled along the Bridge of Flowers in the sunshine. It was a charming and sweet way to spend an afternoon.

The Dancing Bear was a snug and cosy base for our stay. We stayed in the Blue Room which was small but had a great shower room and two single, comfortable beds. Breakfast was an absolute feast - mountains of fresh waffles with Maple syrup, juicy fruit and freshly baked bread - more than enough for a couple of gluttons! The innkeepers were kind and friendly and were happy to give us advice about our trip - wonderful.

We couldn't have been happier with our 'in-town' guesthouse/B & B. Our well traveled and very interesting host was informative about the area and the town; our breakfast were supplied in part from his family's organic farm; price was reasonable; and the other guests were enjoyable as well, from the U.S., Japan and Netherlands. It's an older house, smallish rooms, most bathrooms not ensuite; but if what you enjoy is sociability, good food, company and talk at breakfast, and your own personal trip advisor, the Dancing Bear is your perfect partner.
