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.

The space

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 access

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.

The house and yard were beautiful. It worked out perfectly for our family's stay during my daughter's graduation.

We stayed for several days to attend my daughter's UMass graduation. Lisa's lovely home had all the right amenities and she responded promptly to our few questions. Our favorite parts? Enjoying our morning coffee outside, gathering around the kitchen island, and the company of Stella, Inky and the chickens.

We spent a wonderful graduation weekend at Lisa's house. Nice, comfortable, charming house and great yard to grill and hang out. An added bonus was the family's sweet cat and lots of chicks! Plenty of room for six people, comfortable beds, and awesome kitchen. Close to downtown Northampton and biking trails. Very positive experience overall. Thank you, Lisa!

I booked Lisa's house for our son's graduation from UMass this past weekend. It worked out wonderfully as our two older daughters were able to join us and we were able to all stay in one place, rather than separate hotel rooms. Leading up to our visit, Lisa was very responsive to any questions that I had and even offered tips to avoid traffic during graduation. While we were gone a lot for the short time that we were there, the house was just right for our needs. It was clean and very welcoming, as were the two cats! Unfortunately Lisa was at work when we got there so we never had the chance to meet our hosts, but very useful information about the house was left for us and Lisa was responded quickly to the few questions that we did have. The location was convenient for our needs, in a wonderful neighborhood. This was our first experience with Airbnb and based on this, I wouldn't hesitate to book through it again. Thank you for a great "home base" during a crazy weekend!

Lisa was great at coordinating. The home is airy, with great light and tons of cozy spots to read a book and relax inside or in the great garden. This is a great place to feel right at home while traveling with friends to Northampton.

What a relaxing and blissful home! Lisa was very accommodating. The house, yard and garden were clean and beautiful. Our 19-month-old loved running around the garden and interacting with the chickens, although it was very challenging keeping him safe and keeping him from damaging the indoor space given indoors and outdoors weren't toddler proofed. If I could do it all over again, I'd still bring my little one here, but I would have been more prepared for the challenge. The listing gives a completely accurate picture of what to expect.

Our friendly host met us at check in and gave us a welcoming tour of the cozy, comfortable home.
