About the property

1 Bedroom apartment with Queen bed, private full kitchen, and bathroom.

Peaceful log cabin apartment on 8 acre property. Beautiful gardens, fall foliage, and steps away from Atkins Reservoir and Robert Frost Trails. Great area for hiking and biking! 5 minutes from Amherst College and UMass. Close to Hampshire College, Smith College, and Mount Holyoke as well.

Our listing is Northeast of the campuses, which is awesome for high traffic travel times. Most people visiting these campuses are coming from the other directions.

Even though we are within 5 minutes of the Colleges and Amherst Center, we are nestled on the North side of Mount Boreas, kitty-corner to the Atkins Reservoir, and steps away from Robert Frost Trails. You will find yourself surrounded by quiet wilderness and only a short drive to everything else you need.

You have private access to the pool house/cozy cabin which includes entryway, main living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. In addition, you may use the deck around the apartment. Please enjoy the patio furniture we have provided. You will also have shared access to the pool area during the day (Last week of May through First Week of September). For safety reasons, we ask that you do not swim after dark. We may need to open the pool late or close early due to weather, schedules, etc.

The guest door is located half way around the right side of the home (in a little alcove). This is your private entrance. You will be provided a keyless entry code before you arrive. This gives you the freedom to check in anytime between 3p and 12a and check out anytime before noon.

The bathroom has a walk-in 1 person shower stall. There is no bathtub available.

Some cell phone carriers have limited service at our listing. We have provided a landline that is available for unlimited calling in the US and Canada. You are more than welcome to share the landline number with those that you need to keep in contact with. Please just share your check out dates with them, so they do not call future guests :).

We also provide free WIFI, so you can connect your mobile devices for access to internet based communication applications.

Free Parking in the driveway for up to two cars. Public transit is available with the nearest bus stop just over 1 mile from our location through the PVTA bus line.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Perfect winter getaway! The cabin is cozy and clean. Heather was prompt with responding to all inquiries we had. Short drive to shops, food and Northhampton for music, nightlife and spa. Near many hiking trails. My friends and I really enjoyed our long weekend at the cabin!

Clean, Relaxing, Lots to Do!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Cozy Cabin/Pool House. It was exactly as described (even better). It was warm and cozy with easy access to hiking trails. Close to town but far enough to feel secluded. Betsy was such a wonderful host and was there when/if I needed anything. I will be back!

Beautiful property, great pool, amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay when bringing our daughter to begin her 4 yrs at Mount Holyoke College. We loved staying here--MUCH nicer than a hotel, and it was not too far from Amherst, Northampton and South Hadley. The bathroom and shower were pretty small (no tub), but it was clean and comfortable. The owners in the other house were so wonderful--they brought us locally made apple cider donuts and gave us suggestions on things to see and do. I would stay here again!

Loved everything about our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely home and such lovely hosts! We couldn't have asked for a better place. We had an incredible stay at the cozy cabin and loved every bit of our adventure. The cabin is close to everything, clean, comfortable, spacious and has every amenity you could hope for. They thought of every detail. There is much to see and do walking distance from the cabin as well as a short drive away. We can't wait to come back!!

Peaceful, beautiful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this property for two nights because we were going to a wedding nearby. The property was so neat and clean and lovely, the area was so quiet and peaceful, the pool and grounds were heavenly, and the hosts were very nice and welcoming. We hope to be able to stay here again, for longer!
