Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely home for three weeks in the fall of 2013 and had a wonderful time. The owner was delightful to work with and the house itself was exactly what we were looking for. The house and the area were described perfectly on the VRBO Website. There were no surprises. If we decide to go back to the Amherst area in the future, we will definitely try to rent this house again. I recommend this property without slightest reservation. You cannot go wrong if you decide to rent it.

Great property in the Pioneer Valley

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with my extended family and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The house is wonderfully charming and has such great character. The location is fantastic as you can get to town very quickly and there are lot of great walking trails close by.

I would recommend this place without reservation and will certainly hope to stay there again.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful house over a long weekend in June, and were delighted with our choice.
The photos don't convey how lovely and spacious the house is, and how charming in a wonderful, rambling way. We loved the decor, the art, the books; we loved the light-filled rooms, and we really appreciated the screened gazebo.
Everything was comfortable and very clean. We wished we could have stayed longer, there is so much to do, and explore in the area. We'll just have to come back again!
The owner was nice and helpful, and the rental process quick and easy.
We would definitely recommend this warm and wonderful house to everyone. It is perfect for a family, or a group of friends.
Thank you, Barbara!

Wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented this home for our son's graduation from Amherst college. The house was charming, clean and comfortable. There were 6 adults and there was plenty of room and privacy for all. We enjoyed the screened in patio in the evenings and took in the green, beautiful woods from the windows. The kitchen was well equipped, and was great to be able to prepare meals here. The house was only a few minutes from downtown Amherst and the college. Very convenient to Amherst College, UMASS, Hampshire and Mt. Hoyoke. I would highly recommend this property! A real pleasure!
