The SpaceA gorgeous, modern studio apartment, with private entrance, set in one of the most elegant gardens in the Pioneer Valley. A short walk from downtown, terrific restaurants, delis, hot tub spa, great bakery, Emily Dickinson's house, brewpub, and Amherst Cinema, yet near lovely walking, biking, hiking trails, it has intimate views of the garden from its many windows and patio door. There is a gazebo set in the garden offering a shady viewpoint to appreciate the flower/foliage splendor. (It is a four season garden so it is provides beautiful views even in winter.) The queen bed is extremely comfortable; the studio is elegant but simply furnished with bamboo floors, beautiful artwork, rugs and wall murals. The kitchen has small fridge, microwave, electric kettle, utensils, plates and cups. The bathroom is small but well appointed with tiled tub/shower and more garden view. Plenty of closet space in apartment. Wi-fi is free and works even outside. A large screen is available for casting onto from your tablet, phone, or computer (for example, casting onto screen your Netflix or HBOgo)
Driveway Parking. No pets. No smoking. Accommodates only 1 or 2 people. A futon is available for separate sleeping arrangements. Guest AccessThe garden and its lovely gazebo, benches, and walking paths are open to guests. Wi-fi is free and works in apartment and in the garden. A large screen (with chromecast attached) is available for projecting from guests' devices (their Netflix, etc.) A small collection of slippers is available for guests' comfort. Fridge, microwave, electric kettle, coffee-maker, coffees, teas, kitchen implements, and dishes provided. Interaction with GuestsGuests are afforded a private stay. I am usually available for welcoming and for advising on resources in the area. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is quiet, close to downtown, UMass, Amherst College, and Emily Dickinson's home, offers many wonderful restaurants, delis, shops, cafes, pubs, pizza, spas, lovely walks, and our delightful Amherst Cinema. Getting AroundThere are free five college buses during academic calendar, with small fares in the summer. Short walks to a great cinema, many restaurants, brewpubs, hiking paths, conservation areas, parks, and music venues. Hampshire College is a 5-minute drive or a bus ride away. Northampton (Smith College and many great restaurants and shops) and Mt Holyoke College are each a 20-minute drive (buses go there as well). Other Things to NoteThe garden is especially lovely for strolling three seasons, and even in winter it provides wonderful views. The gazebo is a delightful place to have tea or just view the garden.
