Dear Amanda and Barrie, we enjoyed meeting you and the apartment was perfect...good, light space, comfy and well appointed. The gas/wood stove is just the thing for good heat and efficient good looks, love the skylights. Grateful thanks
We especially enjoyed our visit to Northampton because this warm, welcoming and well stocked home allowed us to really live in the community and not just visit!
After a long day of travel, "leaf peeping" in the Berkshires, we returned to comfort and convenience. Appreciated the well developed list of local attractions and services, many of which we took advantage of. Thank you Amanda and family for making this trip so special!
My wife and I recently spent two wonderful weeks in this lovely apartment. In addition to being clean, cheerfully bright, well furnished and well equipped, it is conveniently located close to Smith College and downtown Northampton. The owner is friendly and available if needed, but not intrusive. We would definitely stay in this apartment again and can recommend it without reservations.
The apartment is spacious, immaculate, comfortable, and well-equipped. The drive to Smith College is only 5 minutes, and you don't have to drive through downtown Northampton to get there. I definitely recommend Amanda's apartment.
