Area Accommodations List
Goldthread Organic Herb Farm is nestled in the hills of Conway, Massachusetts. We do not have overnight accommodations on the farm, so we have put together the following list of local options for those students traveling from afar.
A few neighbors have opened their homes to our students in the past. This is a convenient and good value option for being within walking distance to the farm.
Wilder Hill Gardens
Lilian Jackman is the lady of the manor at this gorgeous and peaceful farm. She has two rooms inside the main house, each with a twin bed. She also has a small cabin with a big deck on offer, which has a double bed.
She asks $50/per night which includes breakfast and will also serve dinner with the addition of a modest fee.
She requires a 50% deposit to secure the reservation.
