Our home is within cycling distance to both downtown Northampton and Florence. It is about a mile from Smith College campus- a pleasant walk or bike ride. There are nearby walking paths and swimming in the Mill River. We have two charming cats and chickens.
Ours is a home ideally suited for family life and socializing with friends. The layout on the first level is open and simply, yet beautifully decorated. The three bedrooms (two queen beds; one full-sized) are on the second floor. Our yard is fenced-in and features an organic vegetable garden in summer, several perennial beds, and a comfortable outdoor seating area with fire bowl. There is also a picnic table for dining alfresco.
Guest may use the kitchen, dining room, den, living room, and half bathroom located downstairs and the three bedrooms and the full bathroom upstairs. The yard is ideal in warm weather. Our basement laundry area is available only for longer stays of one week of more with an additional $50 added to the cleaning fee.
Interaction with guests
We can usually be there to greet you. If you agree to care for the chickens, we can show you all you need to know- which is not much- and you will have access to daily fresh eggs! If you'd prefer we hire a neighbor to care for the chickens, we can do that.
Other things to note
We have two cats who spend a portion of the day outside and evenings inside. We are very conscientious about vacuuming and cleaning to keep pet odors at a minimum! We also have chickens.
We request that you enjoy our home respectfully. We would like to return to our home and find it as we leave it. Please, no smoking.
