The SpaceYou will have the entire house for your use. As this home normally houses a toddler, we also have items like bed guards, gates, and plenty of indoor/outdoor toys and dvds to amuse small children. This house comfortably sleeps 4, but a 5th could sleep on a queen armatures or the couch. There is also a crib mattress on the trundle in the child's room, and there is a double air mattress in the master bedroom window seat.
If you are a single visiting female professor to MHC or Hampshire, we may be able to rent the first floor room to you at a reduced rate. Please feel free to inquire. Guest AccessGuests may use appliances, washer and dryer, hair dryer, iron, and upstairs computer. Interaction with GuestsWe will always be away when this listing is available. We do require a security deposit, to ensure that we find out home exactly as as we left it. At this point we are charging minimal a cleaning fee, with the expectation that guests clean up after themselves (excluding towels and sheets). We do have 2 cats which require feeding in the morning, if you are here for more than 2 days. Their litter will need to be scooped as needed (usually every other day). The NeighborhoodSemi-rural, we are diagonally across the street from a large organic farm stand (fresh eggs daily!). We have several conveniences nearby (Dunkin Donuts, gas station, CVS, liquor store, etc.). We are 5 minutes (2 miles) from Mount Holyoke College, in South Hadley, 10 minutes (~8 miles) from Hampshire College in South Amherst, about 5 miles from the MacDuffie School in Granby, and within 18-25 minutes access to the other colleges in the 5-college areas of lively Amherst and Northampton (U of Mass, Amherst and Smith). Also very close to hiking the Notch (MHC mountain range) and other hikes. Lastly, access points to the Connecticut River are also within 10-25 minutes. Getting AroundParking in the driveway. No public transportation. Other Things to NoteThere will be 2 cats staying in the home who will need to be fed in the morning. You will also need to scoop their cat litter about every 2nd or 3rd day, or as needed. We prefer to rent for the week, but if you need a shorter term, make your request.
