Starlight Llama Bed and Breakfast is Massachusetts’ FIRST solar-powered, off-the-grid, bed and breakfast. We are located on a 120-acre farm that has been in the family for nearly 200 years in the Florence section of Northampton.

We are a 100% off-the-grid house and llama farm. In addition to our farm, crisscrossed with hiking trails, we offer a unique option: Breakfast featuring foods from our organic gardens and fresh eggs from our hens, and we can easily accommodate gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian diets. Breakfast starts with yogurt, granola, and fruit and invite you to relax with the other guests over coffee or tea while we whip up apple-cider french toast, fresh scrambled eggs or some other hot treat. Coffee or tea are available at any time. Enjoy your morning beverage watching llamas graze outside your window, or sit out on the gazebo and toss a snack to the peacocks.

Each of our 3 rooms has a single queen-sized bed, a private bath, and 2 rooms have their entrance. Most of the rooms feature furniture made by your host, John Clapp. These cozy rooms have independent and adjustable heat for your comfort. Dee and John used to own an art gallery, and all the rooms have original art made by Western MA artists or those who were shown in the gallery. Some rooms include Dee's work as well.

In addition to the llamas, our farm includes many rescued animals including a donkey, emus, and peacocks. They have free range of the grounds and grace the bed and breakfast with their beauty. In the evening, come out, look up and see the stars! Two mountains shield us from nearby towns, so without light pollution, you can see the Milky Way, listen to the owls, and just maybe, hear coyotes in the distance.

Guests are welcome to sit on the deck, walk our 120 acres of trails, and visit our reproduction of Thoreau's famous cabin on your way around the loop. Anytime, feel free to walk up to the gates and call for the llamas. In hot or inclement weather, we may have to coax them out with some grain. Just ask!
COVID has changed much, and we are required to follow State rules to protect everyone. Most significantly, guests must eat in their rooms or on the deck, we cannot allow anyone beyond those staying to visit, and we are following significant cleaning guidelines. Most important, during this time, we are creating "picnic breakfasts" which include juice, yogurt, fruit, cheese, eggs, bagels/muffins, and of course, coffee or tea. Rooms have their own Keurig and toaster. We are not allowed to have guests enter the main part of the house, so the Lavender Room is closed. Contact us with questions.
