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 Berkshires

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!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Jennifer's place. It was exactly what we (3 couples) were looking for. We spent our time grilling on the deck and exploring Florence. Jennifer was a great host and we'd definitely stay again.

Spotless!

We stayed a week and the house was more than we could have imagined. Light, bright, airy and spotless! Parking was easy and the house quiet with pretty views. Would definitely recommend! Jennifer even managed an early check in for us.

Open floor plan for visiting

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful for our family reunion/graduation celebration. The open floor plan allowed everyone to be together while cooking, dining and relaxing. The kitchen was conducive to cooking. The super stocked kitchen had every appliance you can imagine. The only problem there was the dishwasher top rack was missing so we had to wash glassware. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms very modern and well appointed. We had local company join us most days and the off street parking accommodated everyone. Beautiful wood floors and skylights galore! The house was very clean and worked very nicely for multiple couples.

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family while we visited Northampton for a wedding. The beds are like clouds and the entire home is beautifully decorated. At first we were a little disappointed that there was not a TV in the main room, but it turned out to be a great thing. We stayed up until the wee hours playing charades and games instead! It was perfect. The dining table was beautiful and large and kitchen was very well equipped. My only suggestion is to have the home heated prior to guest arrival--it look several hours to warm up. Thanks again. Great home.

This house was perfect! It was very clean (most important to me), beautiful, spacious and fully stocked! I was very impressed. All agreed that the beds were the most comfortable beds they had slept in! Absolutely loved this house and would definitely recommend.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a girl’s trip away - - there were 8 of us ladies not from the area. The house was everything promised, and more! High end everything, fully stocked kitchen, amazing beds, bathrooms, and overall very spacious and comfortable! Everyone raved about all aspects of this house - - there was nothing we needed that could not be found, especially cooking dinner Friday night. The house is full of personality and comfort. I can also not say enough about the owner, Jennifer. She went above and beyond when we were planning the trip, suggesting places to eat and things to do. All of her suggestions were perfect and well received by the group. Jennifer was also available immediately for any of our needs - - again above and beyond on her service and the management of the property! Would not hesitate to stay at this or any of Jennifer’s properties again.
