About Jennifer Novak

My husband and I fell in love with the lifestyle of managing properties. We rent an apartment and a house in Northampton Massachusetts as well as a spectacular tropical home on the Island of Culebra PR.

Jennifer Novak purchased this house in 2005

Why Jennifer Novak chose Central Massachusetts

We bought this property originally for its simple beauty. We wanted to be in the woods yet close to town and this property gave us that woodland feel we were looking for while keeping us one mile from Florence center and three miles from down town Northampton. Through the years we've expand on the property, adding a caretakers apartment and have done extensive renovations to provide a more modern, streamline, simple and elegant feel.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because of its close connection to nature, the abundance of windows and skylights, The vaulted ceiling on the main floor and the sloped ceiling den; and we fell even more in love with this property through its renovations. The bathrooms, the kitchen, it feels like a retreat, that's what makes this home so special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything about staying at Jenny and Jason's gorgeous, comfortable, luxurious house in Northampton was perfection - from the host experience, the the facilities of the house itself. Jenny met us the evening we arrived, and showed us into and around the house. We were immediately blown away by how gorgeous, comfortable, and accessible the house is!! We were a large party staying for the holiday (memorial day) weekend, and the house couldn't have suited us better. There are more than enough beds, even little cots stowed away in an adorable, almost hidden reading nook in the master bedroom. Each bed is heavenly comfortable - they must have feather beds on each one! And as is listed in the listing - all 5 star hotel quality bedding. You open the drawers in the bathrooms to find all the supplies you could ever need. More than enough plush towels, and even bottles of fancy VOSS water in the bathrooms - truly a hotel experience! A lovely little balcony off the master as well! And the kitchen - perfection. We were planning on going out to eat in the area, and ended up cooking and grilling both nights instead! All-clad everything, the nicest cooking equipment we've ever used!! The location of the house is also perfect - a short 4 minute walk from a park where we went one afternoon with a cooler (that was in the house!) and had a little picnic! We actually ran into Jenny and Jason on the walk back from the park that afternoon - it was so lovely to talk to them, get to know them more, and learn about how passionate they truly are about hospitality, and the house itself. This house is a true gem - a must stay if you are in the area!! And if you aren't such a large group - they have an apartment listing in the area as well, I can only imagine how nice that property must be :) I can't say it enough - the house MADE our weekend what it was. We were so blown away by every detail, it made the entire weekend special, comfortable, magical, and lovely. If I could give more than 5 stars I would - thank you so much Jenny for an incredible weekend!!

Perfect House for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and this house provided the perfect place for our family to stay. The house is gorgeous, impeccably cleaned, and has EVERYTHING we could possibly need. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were very soft. The showers had shampoo/conditioner and shower gel. Even a professional chef would be pleased with the well stocked kitchen, a cooks dream. I highly recommend this rental.

Beautifully appointed. Great open concept. Cozy and bright.

  • 5 of 5

Easy and smooth communication over the time since booking in June '16, up through move in day. Perfect setting for a graduation weekend with extended family. Nice off street parking. The home is gorgeous and perfect for foodies who like to cook. Hardwood floors perfect for some of us with allergies. Easy access to Northampton but also a nice "away" feeling. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful and luxurious!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. This home is beautiful and has every amenity you could ask for. It is very quiet and private and close to downtown Northampton as well as UMASS. Everything was amazing. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four weeks with our kids, and we really loved the house! It is spacious, beautiful, and contains everything you need - there were even lots of toys for the kids. Jennifer was very helpful and responded very quickly to our questions. There were some minor issues with the bathtub and dishwasher, but overall our stay was really great! We would definitely rent here again. Thanks, Jennifer!

Over Thanksgiving we housed eight members of our extended family in this wonderful house. It was spacious and warm with a very well equipped kitchen. Our granddaughters loved the bunks in the upstairs reading nook, above the book shelves, and our grandsons loved the televisions and attached games. The house is half a block from the Florence Recreation Fields, so our granddaughters could roller blade on their own.

The only slight drawback was that a couple of the amenities were not in working order.

We will definitely be back.
