Sleep with Alpacas at Colonial Hill Alpaca Farm

B&B Provides Soft Landings in North Central Massachusetts

By

How do you know your child is excited about a trip? When she secures a "Sharing Time" slot so she can tell classmates about the adventure... before you leave home!

My fourth grader was thrilled we'd be sleeping with alpacas at Colonial Hill Alpaca Farm. Of course, you don't sleep with the alpacas... but you do enjoy up-close encounters with these gentle creatures when you stay at this unique Massachusetts B&B.

Teresa Emmrich and Gary Orcutt fell in love with a 1742 home in Petersham in 2003. "It was way too big for us," says Emmrich, but they decided: "We'll figure it out."

One night, while flipping channels, she caught an Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association commercial suggesting would-be farmers visit ilovealpacas.com. They toured a nearby farm, and six months later, bought four.

On this photo tour, I'll show you the inn's three rooms, introduce you to its furry residents and tell you why we love alpacas after our stay at Colonial Hill Alpaca Farm. For reservations, call 978-724-0301.
