Guest AccessYou have private access to the pool house which includes entryway, main living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. In addition you may use the deck around the pool house. Please enjoy the patio furniture we have provided. You will also have shared access to the pool area during the day. For safety reasons, we ask that you do not swim after dark. The pool is open from memorial day to labor day. We may need to open the pool late or close early due to weather, schedules, etc. Interaction with GuestsYou will always have access to me via Airbnb and my cell phone. Feel free to contact me anytime with questions.
I do not live on property, but my mother and step father reside in the main house. You will be provided with their home phone number and my mother's call phone for additional support.
The guest door is located half way around the right side of the home (in a little alcove). This is your private entrance. You will be provided a keyless entry code before you arrive. This gives you the freedom to check in anytime between 3p and 12a and check out anytime before noon. The NeighborhoodWe are located within 5 min of Umass and Amherst College. Our listing is Northeast of the campuses, which is awesome for high traffic travel times. Most people visiting these campuses are coming from the other directions.
Even though we are within 5 minutes of the Colleges and Amherst Center, we are nestled on the North side of Mount Boreas, kitty corner to the Atkins Reservoir, and steps away from Robert Frost Trails. You will find yourself surrounded by quiet wilderness and only a short drive to everything else you need.
Cushman's Market and Café is a popular local spot just a 1.5 miles down the road with free wifi, great wine and beer selection, and trendy conveniences. Getting AroundFree Parking in driveway for up to two cars. Public transit is available with the nearest bus stop just over 1 mile from our location through the PVTA bus line. Other Things to NotePlease note:
- The bathroom has a walk-in 1 person shower stall. There is no bathtub available.
- The fireplace has a Premium Electric Fireplace Insert. It has hand finished embers & logs for a realistic, pulsating glow. It offers supplemental heat, and even has an audio box that plays the crackling fire sounds. No flames of any kind are allowed in the listing.
- Some cell phone carriers have limited service at our listing. We have provided a landline that is available for unlimited calling in the US and Canada. You are more than welcome to share the landline number with those that you need to keep in contact with. Please just share your check out dates with them, so they do not call future guests :).
We also provide free WIFI, so you can connect your mobile devices for access to internet based communication applications.
