The SpaceNOTE: When you contact me the first time, please read our eco-friendly policy below and let me know what laundry detergent you normally use when you inquire. Please feel welcome to inquire for a special offer longer-term rental between November-April. WELCOME Welcome to a slice of European hospitality in one of the hippest towns in America! This is a place where artists and writers can find inspiration or scholars can research. Here friends and family can come for weddings, graduations and other milestones and enjoy a beautiful setting to compliment those celebrations. You won't find the studio comparable to any other space available, it's very unique and the price is modest, for what you will experience! Imagine a large yoga studio all to yourself and lots of room to dance on the perfect floor. Dream and play, have  your own private retreat. Large windows looking out into beautiful gardens. A 1250 square-foot studio, loft-like open space and separate building behind our historic Queen Ann Victorian house from 1885. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens and winding pathways. A short walk to downtown Northampton and Smith College campus. Ideal for parents, family members and alumnae visiting the five colleges here in the Pioneer Valley. Close to hiking and bicycle trails. Also ideal if you are coming to the Valley to do a workshop or training,  for a few  weeks or months to work or study, or look for a longer term rental. A 7 min. walk takes you to town and about 40 restaurants and many galleries and performance venues. The neighborhood Is all around wonderful with stellar community participation and commitment, and has a number of writers, filmmakers, and artists. The gardens are permaculture-based with many native plants and trees from apples, pears and blueberries to bamboo, Yucca, dogwoods, sweet ferns, herb garden and perennials. Behind the neighborhood and beyond you can walk to an Audubon sanctuary. For many years the studio was donated for concerts, poetry readings, yoga classes and two Shakespeare companies rehearsed here. There are now two queen-size futons on wooden frames, and a sofa which makes into a double bed. The futons have a foam core which makes them feel more like a normal mattress. WE ARE ECO-FRIENDLY This is an eco-friendly space, particularly suited for people who generally use natural products. If you do use natural products and no essential oils you are a perfect fit. Please let us know what laundry detergent you normally use when you inquire! This way we can determine whether we need to implement a  special protocol to accommodate you and still be able to maintain a chemical free space for all of our guests. Please read more about this below. OUR ECO-FRIENDLY CHALLENGE The issue is not about doing laundry during your stay and we are happy to provide you with an eco-friendly detergent. The host is sensitive to commercial laundry products such as Tide detergent and fabric softeners and is dedicated to maintaining an eco-friendly space for others with the same needs or an eco-friendly lifestyle. All bedding is line dried to keep it as fragrance free as possible and this is quite labor intensive. Nevertheless, people who are booking months in advance, sometimes commit to changing over to an eco-friendly detergent, and by the time of the reservation, fragrance and chemicals will not get on the furniture. If you shop at Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe's, co-ops, natural foods stores, you are likely to be aware of this issue. Thank you so much for your consideration and with that in mind, we would love to host you and offer a very unique experience. Please feel welcome to ask me any questions around this policy. The washer and dryer are located in the back pantry of the main house. EVENT PLANNING: Please let us know if you are planning an event, as there may be an extra charge depending on what is needed to create the perfect event. We have extra folding chairs available.  We may need to include a security deposit. We look forward to hearing from you! Blog post from my daughter: Growing up in an Urban Oasis It’s a rare and wondrous thing to grow up in a house where you are a quick walk from the center of town and at the same time watch bears and rabbits pass through your yard. The blueberry bushes, water garden, lush flower beds, and fruit trees make the gardens that surround the main house and studio an informal sanctuary for animal visitors. As a child I loved climbing the apple tree like the squirrels and watching the frogs gather on the lily pads. The old apple tree fell over a decade ago, but with half of its trunk still firmly rooted it continued to produce blossoms and fruit, and attracted more animals with its bounty more accessible low to the ground. There is something especially magical about seeing a skunk sneak through the underbrush or a wild turkey dart across the grass in a place that is far from remote or wild. I grew up in a house with spanish cookbooks and Barcelona style decor and design in a town teeming with restaurants and writers, music and multicultural events. The house itself is a classic Queen Anne Victorian with stained glass windows, turreted roof, and quartered oak floors. It has always been a home for the meeting of cultures—New England architecture and European food, furniture and art books. In the studio space I watched a Shakespeare company rehearse, listened to a local reggae group perform one night, and a poetry reading another. Home was both cosmopolitan, and a place where I could pick blueberries and write quietly by the edge of the water garden. Having traveled and lived in other places now, I realize even more what a unique and beautiful thing it is to be located in the heart of a town so full of exciting events and artists, in a house that feels international and at the same time is itself a kind of calm oasis. The tall trees separate the house and garden from the road, and make the yard and water garden feel like a world of its own. Guest AccessYou will have access to the studio, gardens and drivewayfor parking. Interaction with GuestsI am always happy to interact with guests and I am very committed to making you feel very welcome and at home and make sure that your stay is memorable. Please feel very welcome to communicate with me whether by email, telephone or text. Or if you happen to see me at the house, feel welcome to knock on the door. Please see my reviews as a superhost! The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood Is all around wonderful with stellar community participation and commitment, and has a number of writers, filmmakers, and artists. Getting AroundWe are a 7 minute walk from town and Smith College and buses go throughout the Pioneer Valley to UMass, Amherst College, Hampshire College and Mount Holyoke. Other Things to NoteModerate cancellation policy – please note that I am able to alter the dates depending on availability, but only you can cancel from your end up until five days before the reservation. I am not able to do it from my side, as I would lose my superhost status.

The SpaceA one bedroom cozy guest house with a private entrance located on Market St. in downtown Northampton. Brand new queen size bed with organic cotton sheets, full private bathroom, and lots of privacy. For each night booked, guests will receive $10 in credit for food and drink at The Roost, just a few doors down on Market St. (We cap the gift certificates at $20 even if you book the space for more than two nights.) The guest house is walkable to everything that downtown has to offer, including Smith College, and the amazing bike path. Just a short drive away to all other area colleges, farms, hiking and nature. While there is no dedicated parking spot for the guest house. There is plenty of on-street parking, both metered and non-metered spots, on the surrounding streets and in the nearby neighborhood. If all else fails, there is always the municipal parking lot downtown, which is less than a ten minute walk from the guest house. The only slightly quirky detail is that the room is within a free standing building behind our apartment. The building is divided into two rooms- the first or 'outer' room is used as a storage facility for reclaimed furniture that will be turned into amazing eclectic pieces by Sticks & Bricks. You must enter and pass through the storage room to find the 'inner' room of cozy comfort. The full bathroom is located within the 'inner' room. There are two locking doors and it is quite safe. Getting AroundThere is no dedicated parking spot for the guest house, however there is ample on street parking (both metered and non-metered) on the surrounding streets and in the immediate neighborhood. If all else fails, there is also the municipal parking lot downtown which is less than a ten minute walk from the guest house.

    The SpaceOn the first floor there's a kitchen/dining area with a deck that comes off it into the back yard. There's also a mudroom, a piano (spinet) room, a living room, and a half bath. There are three bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. The bed in the master bedroom and the living room's pullout sofa-bed are queen-size. The plum room has a comfy fullsize futon bed, and the auburn room has a twin-size bed and we can also offer a thin twin-size futon there. The third floor consists of a big open guest room, with a single bed and a single futon. Guest AccessGuests may have access to the garage (for storing your bikes, etc), the back yard (with picnic equipment, swings, deck, and hammock), and the front porch (with seating). The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is tranquil, and the houses are just far enough apart to allow a good sense of privacy. Parents feel good about their kids playing on the sidewalks or even in the street, which gets little traffic even though we're close to town. There is a lovely path by the Mill River behind the back yard, leading to the Smith College campus. Getting AroundThere's a public bus stop a ten-minute walk from the house. Also, we are just 10 minutes away on foot from Smith College and 20 minutes from downtown.

Guest AccessThere is a large yard with a fire pit & picnic table, a sunny porch with seating, a comfy living area, some very friendly animals, & wifi: all of which you are welcome to enjoy! Interaction with Guests** Due to the recent birth of our daughter (10/1/15) we are offering our room at a reduced rate. Please be aware that there is a baby in the house, and while she is relatively well-behaved, we cannot promise that your stay will be free of crying. On the bright side, she is incredibly adorable! ** We will be present during your stay. While we are usually at work during the days, we are typically home in the mornings & evenings, and thoroughly enjoy getting to know our guests! The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is a hidden gem, tucked away on a quiet road, only minutes from downtown. Getting AroundGuests are welcome to park in our driveway. We are just a hop, skip & a jump away from a pedestrian/bike trail that leads to downtown (a 15 minute walk). Buses to neighboring towns are available from downtown Northampton. Other Things to NoteWe have a dog, two cats and a small flock of chickens. Animal-lovers will be most comfortable staying with us. We have had guests with mild allergies stay with us in the past. Please let us know if this is you! We are happy to keep the cats out of the guest room and do an extra deep clean for you.
