About Colleen

Colleen moved to the Pioneer Valley to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst over 15 years ago and fell in love with the 'Happy Valley'. It's eclectic fusion of culture, personalities, exploration and natural beauty connected me to the sense of place that is the Valley. There is always something happening and places to explore that you can never be bored no matter what the time of year. Colleen worked at Mt. Holyoke College, UMass Amherst and Westfield State University where she commuted from this home. 'Country Side' which is in a fabulous neighborhood within close proximity to all the colleges in the area.

Colleen purchased this house in 2006

Why Colleen chose Massachusetts

Centrally located and close to public transportation while at the same time in a rural, lush and green landscape with views of the abutting farm land, red tobacco barns and open space that I fell in love with when I first came to the area. Proximity to the Norwottuck Rail Trail makes it so easy to take your bike to stores or even Quarters a local bar/ eatery right off the Bike path.

What makes this house unique

Plenty of parking, Large home, close to shopping/ stores, bike path and the PVTA bus stop is right at the end of the street! UMass, Amherst College, Hampshire College, Smith College and Mt. Holyoke College easily accessible by bus ride, car ride or even bike ride! Close to the Williston Northampton School, Deerfield Academy , Northfield Mount Hermon, The Bement School and Eaglebrook. All just a short car ride. The homes large yard, 4 bedrooms / 2 full baths and very comfortable back deck make enjoying this home so easy!!

Great spot. Clean! Great place to rent.

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend. This house is described well in it's listing and local . The space is large and the comfort is real. Went to Wildwood BBQ a 3minute walk from the house and what treat! Some of the BEST BBQ with great outdoor seating and a nice selection of microbrews. Hope to rent here again.

Perfect place to relax while attending an event at Amherst College!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay for attending an event at Amherst College. House is a short drive from Amherst College, all of 5 minutes. Located in a nice neighborhood with bountiful space inside and out. Plenty of driveway parking. House is very clean and organized. The house and bookings are professionally maintained by the homeowner who was very quick and easy to work with. She knows the house inside and out, was readily available during our time there.

Ideal 5-Colleges Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed to preview local colleges and this house was ideal for it. There were three of us and everything was great no complaints. We will definitely stay here again if our daughter chooses any of the surrounding 5-colleges. Thanks for a great place to stay!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The home is described well with so much provided for your stay. The beds and room layouts are restful with easy bathroom access on each floor. The home is VERY clean, son has allergies and he had a great stay. Everything is gone through rather thoroughly between stays, you can tell. I am used to doing some cleaning before getting comfortable and did not have to at this vacation home. We visited University of Mass, Smith and Amherst College while using this home as our center point of relaxation. Much nicer than any hotel and well worth it. Quiet and relaxing neighborhood with a nice deck to enjoy summer evenings on.

Will stay here again if our daughter chooses a school in Western Mass or for a getaway without hesitation.
