The SpaceOur mini-farm is peaceful and relaxing, with great attention to wholesome, home-grown food. We care deeply about the earth, choosing to use eco-friendly products, to source our electricity from wind, to heat with wood pellets, and to buy local. Guest AccessIn addition to your private bedroom with full-size bed and bath, you are invited to share our common spaces: kitchen and dining area, living room, back patio, and gardens. Just a few feet away is the bike path that goes into Amherst (5 mi) and Northampton (11 mi); the Robert Frost Trail and other hiking trails are also nearby. Interaction with GuestsWe will be home during your stay, and we are happy to share our knowledge of the area with you or to leave you to yourselves. If you would like a tour of the gardens, just ask: we're happy to show you around! The NeighborhoodWe love our little spot--it's quiet, beautiful, and surrounded by conservation land, but still so close to Amherst and all the amenities of the five-college area. We can spend the day in the dirt, then catch a movie and dinner in town . . . or just hang out on the back patio and listen to the birdsong. We have flyers from local establishments for you to peruse, and can make restaurant recommendations, if you are looking for good places to eat. Getting AroundAmherst is 10 minutes away by car, and 25 minutes by bike. Hampshire College is less than 10 minutes' drive away. By the back roads, Northampton is 15-20 minutes by car, and about an hour by bike. Other Things to NoteA freight train passes behind the house, so there is some noise from that every once in awhile, and it can pass by at night. We have earplugs handy on hand if you are a light sleeper. Unfortunately pets are not permitted due to allergies.

The SpaceA graceful blend of the old and new near the heart of Amherst. Maybe you just want the master suite, but we can accommodate larger families and groups by adding one, or two more private bedrooms. Sleeps up to 7. A private front porch opens to the entrance foyer and staircase. Upstairs is the master suite/apartment (1 queen bed and 1 twin bed), with a private bathroom and kitchen attached, and lovely farm views. A second private bedroom (1 queen bed, and a massage chair!) is also available upstairs. Downstairs you will find a finely furnished living room (with a flatscreen TV, streaming movies, and lots of DVDs). If needed, the living room converts to a third bedroom by closing the doors and opening the sofa into a double bed. Outside, you and your guests also have access to a large fire pit, a gas grill, and picnic tables. Guest AccessPrivate front-door entry. Plenty of free parking. Access to our farm and trails. Plus all Amherst has to offer (see the guidebook section of this listing). Interaction with GuestsThe farm family lives in the separate adjacent home, and is often available to assist with anything you might need. We welcomes as much or as little interaction as you like. Chat about local sustainable livelihoods, tour the farm and CSA, or enjoy your privacy and do your own thing. The NeighborhoodA walkable/bikeable community, that cares about being a community. Stroll west past Emily Dickinson's homestead on your way to dinner in the center of town. Or turn east toward mother nature and hike to the Amethyst Brook Conservation Area, Mt. Orient, and the Robert Frost trail at the back of our farm. Getting AroundEasy access to the Five Colleges. Bus service (Pioneer Valley Transit Authority) is available on the corner (North East Steet and Main Street). Other Things to NoteHistoric farmhouses have their charms and quirks. N.B. There is only one bathroom available, and it is accessed through the master suite bedroom. This is perfect for couples, and usually works well for families and good friends too. Unrelated parties can still be very comfortable by using the other two private bedrooms, and keeping the suite open for kitchen and bathroom access. EXTRAS: You may also book a horse-drawn WAGON/SLEIGH RIDE or HORSEBACK RIDING LESSONS. Ask for details. Drop-in CSA VEGETABLES shares are also available.

The SpaceCozy private room in 100+ yr. old house. Stream, garden and greenhouse in the back yard, a stone's throw from Amherst town center, and to the University of MA. (Within walking distance from the Peter Pan Busline.) Beautiful guest bathroom, cable, internet, kitchen privileges, and solar hot water which is always hot! Please be aware, however, that the guest bathroom is on the first floor, but bedrooms are on the second floor. For convenience, at night guests are encouraged to use my personal bathroom, upstairs, rather than having to negotiate the stairs. Also note that the guest bathroom is shared among the guests. Expect friendliness, and privacy, long walks through woods, town, or campuses. Beautiful neighborhood, any season of the year. Plenty of interesting restaurants including Japanese, Vietnamese, East African, Indian, American, high and low end. Plenty of culture in this 5 College area. Excellent transportation during the academic seasons. Guest AccessYou are welcome to use kitchen, dining room, living room, the outdoor "cafe," front porch and yard. I am happy to help you find your way to the University through the woods (literally "over the river and through the woods")! Interaction with GuestsI am happy to help guests regarding their stay. I can recommend routes for avoiding traffic, restaurants within your price range, points of interest in town and beyond, and public transportation. I have lived here for 20+ years, and know the area well. The NeighborhoodThis is an old and very desirable neighborhood with many interesting features. Across the street are chickens and fruit trees. I am surrounded by woods, gardens and a stream, yet located in the middle of town. Getting AroundThere is excellent transportation by bus during the academic year, and the service is adequate during the summer months. The 5 colleges, UMass, Amherst, Smith, Hampshire and Mt. Holyoke, support an inter-campus bus system. Peter Pan bus lines go to both the UMass campus and Amherst center (slightly closer to me, and an easier walk). The Amtrak train goes through Northampton. There are also possibilities to rent bicycles through me or my neighbor, zip car and Uber options. A Megabus station is at the Hampshire Mall in Hadley, but connecting bus routes to town are rather sparse. Other Things to NoteRecommended: Bring slippers and a bathrobe for your personal comfort. I enjoy meeting my guests and spending a little time talking with them. You are welcome in my home. Plan to enjoy the sites! There's so much culture and fun in this town, and in this area! It is a beautiful place to enjoy nature - worth staying a few extra days if you're here on business.

Guests have a mini fridge, Keurig, and microwave for their use. Sheets, towels, shampoo/conditioner, soap, toothpaste, and hair dryer provided.

Our house is on a quiet and lovely residential street in North Amherst. It's peaceful and beautiful yet not isolated - UMASS is down the road, Mill River Recreation Area, Atkins Farm Market, and a local library are a short walk away, and Amherst Center is a quick drive, bike, or bus ride away. We are about a 15-20 minute walk to UMASS (minutes by car/bike/bus) and about five-ten minutes from Amherst center by car. We are also near several PVTA bus lines for easy access via public transportation to just about anywhere in the five college area. North Amherst is a convenient location for exploring other area towns like Sunderland, Deerfield, Northampton, etc. Please note - the space is not wheel chair accessible - guests enter through our garage and down a somewhat narrow set of stairs. Just a heads up that you go through our garage and basement which at first might seem less than ideal but we promise and our reviews confirm that the guest space beyond our unfinished storage areas is great! We are New Yorkers who moved to Amherst in 2013. My husband is a UMASS alum - we are happy to answer any and all questions we can about living/working/going to school in the area.

We are in a great location in North Amherst, perfect for easy access to surrounding towns. Getting AroundThere are several PVTA bus stops near us and you can walk or bike to UMASS, town, and a few local stores.

    The SpaceA new "green" house rebuilt in 2006--legend has it on the site of Amherst's brothel. The only working girls now are my small flock of hens beside the shed that work for chickenfeed. Across the street is the Newell Court community gardens. An abundance of flowering trees, bushes and plants make an Amherst springtime a delight for the senses. Autumn finds the trees aflame with color. Guest AccessWith the exceptions of my bedroom, the other guest room and my loft office, guests are free to make themselves at home inside, on the deck or grounds. The Jungle Grrlz (my chickens) love visitors and will bend your ear dishing more dirt than Delta Sand & Gravel up the road in Sunderland. They love bugs more than the NSA. Interaction with GuestsDepending on your schedule and mine we can have a gab fest or just the bare minimum. I follow the middle path, so I can be still or chatty. I am also a good listener. I am available either in person or by text, email or my cell phone to answer questions or help with directions or suggestions. The NeighborhoodI have great neighbors, some older like me, some young college age and some 30-somethings with beautiful children. We have a community garden so there is a lot of neighbor to neighbor interaction. You might think you are on some country lane, but Newell Court is a private gravel way that is only a few minutes walk from the Amherst Common. Our neighbors include the Amherst Women's Club and the Emily Dickinson Museum. The high school ball fields and outdoor track are close by at Amherst High. We are one mile from the UMass Campus, a 10-minute walk to Amherst College and a short bike ride to Puffers Pond. The PVTA buses make it easy to get to Hampshire College a short ride down route 116 South. Getting AroundThe Pioneer Valley Transit Authority moves students, residents and visitors with a modern fleet of busses and a convenient schedule throughout the region. There are taxi and limousine services that offer rides to Bradley International Airport in Hartford (Windsor Locks), CT an hour away. A walking, biking, rollerblading path connects Amherst with Northampton. If you are looking for boating, the Connecticut, Deerfield and smaller rivers flow through the area. The Valley and the hill towns surrounding it offer a world of easy to challenging bicycle trips. Amherst alone offers 50 nature preserves for walking and birding. The Holyoke Range and Sugarloaf offer spectacular views for hikers. You can drive to the summit of Sugarloaf except in winter. A two-minute walk will take you to the Elements spa where you can relax in a hot tub, schvitz in a sauna or unwind with massage therapy or other bodywork. Next door to Elements is the Lumberyard, one of Amherst's fine dinning establishments or in the same block there's Bruno's for free delivery of pizza, subs and salads. The Amtrak train station with trains to and from Vermont and New York City has moved to Northampton, but can be accessed by PVTA bus. Greyhound, Peter Pan and Megabus all have stops in and around Amherst or Hadley. Other Things to NoteAmherst is central to the Five Colleges, Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke (South Hadley), Smith (Northampton) and the University of Massachusetts flagship campus. The "Happy Valley" as it is affectionately known abounds with arts, crafts, culture, education, farming, sports and recreation. So if it is music, theater, apple picking, museums, dinning, shopping or nature the area is the equal of many Northeastern cities but with less traffic and more convenient parking. Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost were poets who made Amherst their home as have many other notables both historic and contemporary. Whether it is enjoying a Shakespeare play at the Renaissance Center, a "contact high" at Gungafest on the Amherst Common or a homemade ice cream at Bart's there's something for everyone and every taste in the Valley.

    The SpaceThe renovated farm house is light and airy. The first floor small room is off of the kitchen with a queen size bed, drawers, a dresser, closet and next to a shared bath with a lovely shower and an outdoor shower, in warm months. The outdoor shower has a view of a meadow or the stars at night. This is the only bedroom on the first floor so it feels very private at night, even with shared bath. Washer and dryer on second floor. While i do have air conditioning, I use it rarely. I prefer to keep it natural unless super hot. Each room has its own heat control. If you have a pet, please let's discuss and make sure it sounds like a good match. This is an old home. And while it is fully renovated, it is dusty. I also have three cats and a toy poodle so if you are allergic to cats or older homes, this is not the place for you. It will never be as clean as a new house. It has finished and painted wooden floors. Guest AccessTravelers can enjoy kitchen, yard, porch, garden, TV room, bath, outdoor shower (except when removed in winter), washer and dryer, wifi and bicycles (2) upon request. I have adirondack chairs in the garden that can be enjoyed for reading and relaxation. I have a coffee pot with a cone filter, coffee and half and half. Feel free to bring make coffee if you desire. Meals are not included. Interaction with GuestsI work full-time, in my home. I am on my computer and on the phone on the first floor. My goal is for you to have a comfortable stay but since I work full-time, interaction is minimal. The NeighborhoodI live on the best street in Amherst. In-town, dead-end - country, in town. Walk to town, restaurants, coffee, independent movie theater and i have lovely neighbors. Getting AroundWalk to town, cars can park on street. Great biking and a wonderful bike trail. You can use my bikes upon request! Other Things to NoteI am a quiet early to bed, early to rise person. Partiers, please don't come here. If you are allergic to cats or older homes, this is not the place for you.

    The SpaceA modest room, overlooking the garden, located in a unique and special space. Perfect for those interested in architecture/design! Formerly Wesley Chapel (1878), the building was purchased and renovated in the 1970's. The architecture studio, TIA Architects, has been located in the top loft of the building ever since. They have been practicing ecological architecture since the 1970's -- you will see architectural drawings and models throughout the building, as well as stained glass windows and other details. Local art can be seen throughout the building, as well as in your room. **convenient location close to Amherst College, downtown Amherst, UMass, and the Emily Dickinson House. Dimensions of room: 9.5ft x 13.5ft Traveling for two? Looking for more space? Check out the Sienna Room: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/7197853 Guest AccessKitchen and 2 bathrooms located on same floor as the room. These spaces are shared, but will be private for the most part during the night when nearby offices are empty. There are no other people living in the building or staying overnight, so the space is very private in the evening. Access to garden/backyard - perfect for sitting outside and eating lunch in the warmer months. We just added a large table and chair set out there, and planted more flowers. Free parking anywhere in our lot. *Other office/studio spaces in the building are private and will be off limits at all times.* Interaction with GuestsAs much, or as little as they like -- Myself, or my assistant, would be happy to show you around or answer anything you may want to know about the town, building, and things to do in the area. The NeighborhoodA nice corner of Amherst. Perfect for a good stroll about town. Far enough away from the noise that surrounds the colleges, but close enough that you can still get around by foot. Getting AroundWalk, bike, drive, or take the free bus. If you need public transportation, the bus stop is located right outside our building. Other Things to NoteWe would love if you were able to check in during business hours, so one of us can show you around. That is before 4 pm. If this is definitely not a possibility, we may be able to make special arrangements - just let us know ahead of time. -We appreciate a self check-out time of about 11 am. If you plan on staying much later into the afternoon, please let us know. - The bnb space is located on the same floor as our gallery space, which gets rented out on occasion for small groups (like meditation, dance, workshops) or for other events. We will notify you when you book if there is anything going on in the gallery during your stay. If there is a public event (such as an artist reception) going on during your stay, you will be more than welcome to attend!

    The SpaceThis rental is not for a few days or short term. I am offering to rent my own home, a self-contained private unit in a two sided single family dwelling, for one person, duration 5+ or 5 months from November 1, 2015 until April 15, (or April 1), 2016, basically the entire winter, while I am on leave to stay warm in Jamaica, due to physical challenges that prevent me from navigating the cold season. A car is essential in winter, as we are almost a mile from the bus route, but our location is very close and convenient to shopping, entertainment, restaurants, universities and Amherst center, so long as you have a vehicle. We have the advantage of a beautiful, rural setting surrounded by vast expanses of cornfields and western panoramic views, beautiful sunsets and no close neighbors, yet being centrally located. You are welcome to contact me via Airbnb email if you have any specific questions. Guest AccessOne spacious bedroom, a living room/computer and TV room, bathroom and kitchen, rear deck and back yard, off street parking. Interaction with GuestsGuests will be on their own, with plenty of privacy, while owner is away. The NeighborhoodPastoral surroundings, with easy access to all directions in the Valley, like the hub of the wheel. Getting AroundA vehicle is a must in winter, as we are a mile from the bus route. Other Things to NotePlease contact landlord immediately (it won't cost you), if there are any system failures or repairs needed.
