About Kenburn Orchards

At Kenburn Orchards Bed and Breakfast, we offer you a choice of three spacious guest rooms, each with a private bath en suite furnished with the finest amenities you'd expect in a quality inn.

We have lovingly restored our family's stately colonial farmhouse, built in 1877, which sits atop our own hill, surrounded by 150 private acres on which we grow Christmas trees, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and lingonberries. In season, these fruits and berries find their way into our home-made breads, muffins and breakfasts, and Susan's fruit preserves.

We are located in Shelburne, just over the Greenfield line, (three miles west of I-91 exit 26), but we're a world away, set back from the scenic Mohawk Trail in the midst of an old apple orchard. Looking east across the Connecticut River to the hills beyond, we can see all the way to Mount Monadnock, more than fifty miles away in New Hampshire. 

We are in an extraordinarily beautiful rural area known for its history, schools and museums, picturesque farms and year 'round opportunities for outdoor activities.  The quiet beauty of the area seems to promote creativity; the hills are alive with music, and many world-class artists and crafts-people live and work here.   A number of festivals and events sponsored by a variety of local organizations ensure that there is usually something wonderful going on nearby.

Stone steps adjacent to our flowing water gardens lead to our big front porch, where you'll find antique rocking chairs waiting. For privacy and convenience, we provide a separate entrance into the portion of the house dedicated solely to guests. Stone steps lead up to the front porch and main entrance

You'll enter into the formal dining room, where our home-made breakfast is served, and walk through to the sitting room with its gas parlor stove for cozy relaxation.  All rooms are simply furnished with antiques, oriental rugs and original artwork. 

Breakfast in the Dining Room

We are proud to serve our guests Berkshire Highlands B&B blend of 100% organic fair-traded coffee, available only through McCusker's Market in Shelburne Falls.

Breakfast, always home-made with fresh, local ingredients, is served in the dining room, except on particularly nice summer days, when almost everyone prefers to eat on the porch.  You'll be offered a multi-course breakfast with fresh-baked breads, home-made granola and fresh seasonal fruit, along with a special entree each day, perhaps waffles, a clafuti, fruit-filled pancakes, or one of Larry's omelets usually served with fresh hot popovers. 

We serve locally grown or produced food whenever possible, both to ensure quality and freshness, as well as to support the economic endeavors of our community and fellow farmers. 

Orchards in Bloom Our guests are encouraged to explore the natural beauty of our old orchards, farm fields and woodlands.  You may hike or bring your own cross-country skis or snow shoes.  We manage the land to promote and enhance wildlife habitats, so you may be fortunate enough to encounter some of the abundant wildlife in the surrounding fields, streams and woods.
Down the Lane in winter
We share with you the comfort of our home, the vitality of our community, and the restorative powers of the nature surrounding us.  Ours is a non-smoking home.  Our dogs Moxie and Honey are part of our family, and of your stay with us.
