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 the area more and more for extended business trips or visiting relatives. When I'm in the area I use the detached office studio.

Great house and neighborhood
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Christopher's house. It was comfortable, clean, and literally had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well stocked allowing us to make a yummy Easter dinner together. Super easy to walk into town and explore. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you, Christopher!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts Jessica. It was a pleasure having you. Sorry about the patio chair I should have retired earlier - we replaced the patio set to be sure we're even more comfortable when you're next our guest. Good travels!
Beautiful home in charming neighborhood
This is an immaculate home in a charming neighborhood within easy walking distance of Smith College and downtown Northampton. Our family stayed for a long weekend and everyone enjoyed the house, especially the attractive kitchen, dining and living areas. We made several meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. This home is warmly and beautifully decorated but there is no clutter. I highly recommend this rental and we hope to stay again.
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with others, and we look forward to hosting your family again! Happy travels.
Charming house with great location

Appreciated the beautifully remodeled home which is meticulously maintained. Very clean house with well stocked kitchen. Appreciated all the attention paid to details. Christopher supplied everything needed for an enjoyable stay.
We enjoyed our stay very much - the home is well appointed and in a great location. Thank you.
The Home is well appointed - and the location is outstanding. We hope to visit this property again when we are next in Northampton.
Wonderful house for wedding weekend!
My now-husband and a few friends stayed in this house for our wedding weekend. It's a beautiful house with a lovely open downstairs area. We had hair and makeup done for six of us girls in the kitchen and living room and it was a great bright, sunny space for this. It's also a great location! After the wedding we had an after party in downtown Northampton, and my brand new husband and I walked home afterwards. Beautiful end to the night. All of our guests were from out of town and everybody loved visiting the Pioneer Valley - I'll rec this house to anyone coming back for another visit!!! Nice owner, easy communication, very welcoming. Thanks for everything!!
Congratulations again and best wishes. So glad the home played a part in making your celebration smooth and memorable. Thanks for sharing your experience and let us know if you're planning an anniversary visit to the area. All the best, Christopher
Nicely appointed, comfortable and clean. Perfect location.
Upon our arrival, the back yard was not as advertised due to remodel work on the garage but Christopher responded professionally to our concern. Otherwise the house was spot on the description and was quite charming. We found everything we needed for cooking meals in. We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.
