Travel and Your Stay in Deerfield

We are offering teachers the opportunity to stay in an air-conditioned dormitory with single rooms at the Deerfield Academy, a private school ideally located in the Old Deerfield Village Historic Landmark District, literally steps from PVMA and its Teachers’ Center. The dorm will be available Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon. PVMA provides bed linens, pillows, blankets, towels and washcloths. Please note that bathrooms are communal, with one designated for women and another for men. Bedroom doors lock from the inside only. There is lockable space available in the Teachers’ Center.

PVMA also maintains a current list of local motels and bed & breakfasts in a three to five mile radius from Deerfield.  Some of these include breakfast, although PVMA provides group breakfasts and lunches daily.  There will also be two special project dinners for participants during the week and there will be a picnic supper on Mount Sugarloaf on Sunday evening.

Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, CT, is the closest airport. It is located one hour south of Deerfield. Information about getting from Bradley to Deerfield is on the link “list” above. In Greenfield, MA, just ten minutes away from Deerfield is a transportation center with bus and train service.

Deerfield Academy dormitory charges (as necessary) and the cost of the lunches, two group dinners and Mount Sugarloaf picnic will be withheld from the $1200 stipend checks given out at the last session of the workshop.

The scenic historic village of Deerfield, Massachusetts, is one of the state’s top tourist destinations. It is home to many historic museums and houses, educational institutions, cultural centers, state parks, and the Yankee Candle flagship store.
