The SpaceHello! This room, with it's own private entrance, is in a SECOND floor apartment (some guests might find the stairs challenging especially with heavy luggage) in a beautiful old victorian home with a SHARED bathroom, one mile from the center of downtown Northampton. Easily come and go as you please with your own entrance, key and completely separate quarters of the house. It's like having your own little apartment. Minutes walk to Smith Campus, Child's Park, the YMCA, bike paths, hiking trails and more.
Room features a double platform bed with plenty of soft pillows and a fluffly down comforter in the winter, and beautiful cotton quilt in the warmer months. Windows on three sides gives this room plenty of bright sunlight, warming it in the winter and keeping things cool and breezy in the summer. Being in the back of the house, its quiet and private. For the super-hot summer nights we do have an Air Conditioner to keep the room cool for your stay. There is a electric kettle in your room for tea or hot oatmeal in the morning, and a mini fridge in the hallway.
You have your own private entrance, with a brand new deck out your back door and plenty of on-street parking. Absolutely no parking in the back! There are limited spaces only for tenants. There is always plenty of street parking right at the house. Park here and walk to town or to the beautiful Smith campus. House is directly on the bus route, and bike path is right outside. SHARED bathroom is on the guest bedrooms side of the house, giving you plenty of privacy and space. Bathroom has a old claw foot tub with shower that some might find difficult to get in and out of. Please see the photos to be sure its a good fit for you. Since its an old tub, shower would be a little uncomfortable for someone over 6 feet, and do be careful of the hot water as its either all on or all off...use the cold to adjust the temperature. We do request that you bring your own towel if you can! If not, we have them available so please just ask!
In your bedroom you will have a wall mounted 40" HD LED tv with Roku featuring free Netflix, streaming movies from Amazon, Hulu Plus, Crackle, Disney and more. High speed wireless is also available during your stay. Due to other guests staying with us from time to time, please be courteous with the volume.
We are an artist and musician who spend quiet time at home at night making a meal, reading a book, watching movies or making art. We love to host, and share the best spots we know to explore during your stay.
We also have a smaller, twin size bedroom available so depending on the time of your stay, you may see our other guest.

We LOVE that we are NOT a hotel, and LOVE to host guests who enjoy the uniqueness of staying in someone’s home, and the ability for us to message each other and make sure it’s the perfect fit. PLEASE reach out and ask us any questions and let us know what your needs are. We are excited to fulfill them and to host you. Guest AccessGuests have their own private entrance, and access to the beautiful back deck. There is a shared bathroom with the hosts. A door separates the guest quarters from the residence quarters for your privacy and ours. There is so much privacy, its like having your own place...you may never even see us. Interaction with GuestsBecause we both travel so often, there are many days we are not there to greet our guests, but we make sure everything is ready for them, easy to find, and we are easy to get in touch with. When we are home, we love to meet our guests when they arrive, and then give them all the space and privacy they need. We are a text or door away if there are any questions or they need advice on what to see or eat downtown.
It is very much like having your own private space. The NeighborhoodWe are surrounded by beautiful houses from the 1800's and early 1900's. The Smith Campus stretches right up to a few streets away which provides amazing gardens, a river in walking distance, green houses, cafes and libraries. There is an art museum, and then everything that downtown has to offer...great food, live music, art galleries, shopping and more.
There is a large park a 2 minute walk away, a bike path the can take you through four surrounding towns, and the neighborhood is quiet, safe and beautiful at every time of the year. Getting AroundWe are a one mile walk to downtown through the Smith Campus....very safe, beautiful and convenient. We are a mile from the Peter Pan bust station, and there is a bus system that runs all over downtown, northampton and the surrounding areas including Amherst. There is a stop at the smith campus less then a half mile from our home.
Parking is included and is free on the street in front of the house. Very safe neighborhood and lots of room since there is a bike lane as well. We both park on the street all the time. Other Things to NoteQuirks we like to share about this old Victorian...We are on the second floor, an easy and wide new staircase leads you up to your deck and private entrance. Anyone with difficulty with stairs may have trouble, and always please be careful during the icy months!
Our water pressure is amazing! But be careful when turning on the water in the bathroom (URL HIDDEN) comes on fast! Also, the hot water in the shower is either on or off..use the cold to regulate temperature.
Since we rent another room out on this private side of the house, you MAY see another guest but we are always conscious of who is staying in our rooms and consider each persons comfort and safety.
