We now 'farm' Greens Treat and provide organic locally grown fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers for 25 garden share members.
John purchased this house in 1999
The house and gardens sit on a south slope. Sunny and warm all year round with spectacular soil for our garden. And the view - calming.
Great place to relax and recharge you're batteries.
It'll be my first choice if I'm over that way again in the future.
Thanks for the stay
My family was in town for a wedding and opted for Jim and John's wonderful house, renting both suites to accomodate all six of us. When we arrived, there were garden-fresh tomatoes awaiting us outside as well as fresh eggs and butter in the fridge. My mother is 85 years old and was delighted that I found a place with no stairs. I can't say enough about how hospitable and gracious our hosts were. Our only drawback is that they were having a 'heat wave' and the units had no AC. Highly recommended property.
We stayed with Jim and John for the third time in as many years. Their place is absolutely lovely, quiet, and restful. The living room overlooks the vegetable gardens with views of the mountain. A more-than-well-equipped kitchen reflects Jim and John's years operating restaurants in New York and Northampton. Lovely beds and linens in both bedrooms and the bathroom. The garden holds exotic peonies, which during the season they share with those staying there, and sweet, tender lettuce and veggies which they also share. Behind the home are chickens who produce delicious eggs. Jim and John are congenial hosts, perfectly hospitable, never intrusive. We loved spending time talking with them. Their dogs are also a treat. Leaf would visit us as soon as we opened the front door, and then go on about her way. The location is less than ten minutes from downtown Northampton, but you feel completely in the country. We will be back as soon as our schedules permit, and it remains our favorite place to stay whenever we get to central MA!
The three of us had such a wonderful time at John and Jim's place. The mountain view suite was just what we needed and so much more. The place was so quiet with such beautiful view. The suite was clean and well-maintained. The amenities were generous. The kitchen was a perfect size. There were fresh eggs in the fridge for us, which we cooked for breakfast. We spent time walking around the vegetable garden and watching the chicken. We also enjoyed spending time with John and Jim. They gave us a basket of fresh peas from the garden to take home. Definitely recommend this place!!!
My partner and I spent a romantic winter weekend at this wonderful house. The enormous picture window and tasteful decor offered a deeply peaceful, cozy, and private space to relax, let go, and just be. We felt welcomed and at home. The towels were indeed amazing, the kitchen well-appointed, and there were so many different cozy nooks to sit and read or watch the world go by. Beautiful. Would highly recommend to all!
From the pictures, I knew that we would enjoy the weekend in the Bamboo Suite, but John's attention to details and rare, thoughtful esthetics well exceeded my expectations! John is an exceptional host—both present and helpful, yet we felt alone in the little paradise surrounded by bamboo. He even lent me his computer to try to resolve a technical problem with my phone. And the raspberry jam is worth the trip there...
