Hi. I'm an enthusiastic restorer of beautiful old homes and fell in love with this charming turn of the century Dutch Colonial. After 6 years of restoration I find I'm away from home more and more for extended business trips or visiting relatives.

Location, location, location. Situated 2 blocks from Smith College campus, this home offers the best of vibrant Northampton within walking distance in any direction, while being nestled into a mature quiet neighborhood with tree lined streets and sidewalks.

If outdoor living space is your thing, you'll love the covered front porch with rocking chairs and bistro set, as well as the furnished backyard garden and patio with 45' waterfall, gas BBQ, gas fire-pit.

Beautiful, Immaculate, all needs anticipated

  • 5 of 5
Christopher made check in easy; all needs were anticipated and listed in the check in book. House was immaculate and tastefully furnished in every room. Neighborhood was quiet and wonderful, but an easy walk to Smith or downtown. Front porch and rear garden / grilling area were wonderful places to spend time. Wonderful kitchen with every convenience and all the important cooking equipment. Only seating for four in dining room, which would make it kind of cramped for people planning dinner with all three bedrooms full (6 people). More than enough room for us, though.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
When we first entered the house we were greeted by fresh flowers and chocolates. The house was beautiful, very clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. The property was located close to many shops, restaurants and services. We will definitely stay there again when visiting the area.

Thank you, Christopher, your house was perfect.

  • 5 of 5
This house was really perfect as a home-base for a week spent with family before our daughter's wedding at Look Park. Great location, nice quiet neighborhood, fun to walk around the block or into town. The furnishings beds were comfy and clean, the kitchen large and functional, the backyard with grill and firepit was popular.All the wedding folks who visited us throughout the week loved having a comfy, homey place to plan and relax. Highly recommended!

Well equipped, quiet, clean, convenient

Our family stayed here four nights during college graduation. The host was very attentive, the neighbors friendly, the neighborhood quiet, and the location in walking distance from campus and town. The house was in excellent condition. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Great house - Great location

  • 5 of 5
We have rented this house twice, and have been delighted on both occasions. While it is an older home, it has been beautifully renovated and very tastefully decorated - and it was immaculate. We felt relaxed and "at home" as soon as our bags had been unpacked! We enjoy cooking, and the kitchen was a pleasure to work in, as it was well-equipped with high quality appliances. We were lucky enough to have warm Spring weather on our recent visit, and we made good use of the large gas BBQ grill.

The house has three bedrooms, and sleeps six. We think four would be very comfortable, but six might be tight, as the dining room table only seats four, and there is only one bath/shower.

The house is in a very quiet and friendly neighbourhood. It took us 10 - 15 minutes to walk in to town, and about 5 minutes to walk to the closest large grocery store. In addition, there are several recreational trails within a few minutes walk. Our favourite was a wooded trail along the river behind Smith College.

The owner, Christopher, is very helpful and went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed. However, he really had thought of just about everything beforehand! We travel to the Amherst area a couple times a year, and now that we have found this house we hope we can stay here every time.

Felt like home for the holidays

  • 5 of 5
We were away from home for Christmas for the first time in many years and the owner made sure that everything was in place for us to have a wonderful holiday. The house was warm and welcoming, beautiful in the snow (but the drives and walks had been shoveled!) and there was Christmas greenery inside and out. We entertained our large family and our friends, and everyone agreed that our holiday was perfect. I will always stay here when we visit our family in Northampton.
