About Christopher

I'm an enthusiastic restorer of beautiful old homes and fell in love with this charming turn of the century Dutch Colonial. After 6 years of restoration I find I'm away from the area more and more for extended business trips or visiting relatives. When I'm in the area I use the detached office studio.

Why Christopher chose Northampton

Location, location, location. Situated 2 blocks from Smith College campus, this home offers the best of vibrant Northampton within walking distance in any direction, while being nestled into a mature quiet neighborhood with tree lined streets and sidewalks.

What makes this house unique

If outdoor living space is your thing, you'll love the covered front porch with rocking chairs and bistro set, as well as the furnished backyard garden and patio with 45' waterfall, gas BBQ, gas fire-pit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks Christopher for a great stay - really nice house with all we needed. Love the waterfall and closeness to town. We have rented many VRBO houses and this is the best yet. We look forward to our return next summer.

well equipped, lovely home in a charming neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding in the area so 5 of us stayed there. It was a very comfortable house with everything we needed. The furnishings were all in good shape and very attractive. The kitchen was well appointed. Since the weather was good we also enjoyed sitting in the backyard which is small but very nice. We found everything we needed, sheets and towels all good quality. The beds and pillows very comfy.

Very conveniently located and walkable to Northampton's shops and restaurants.

Thanks for the pleasant stay.

Clean, curated, convenient classic home ...

  • 5 of 5

... within walking distance of Smith College, close proximity to downtown Northhampton and easily accessible to the rest of Pioneer Valley, Chris has crafted a true home-away-from-home. Two families gathering for a momentous reunion weekend easily shared this home. The only thing that would have made it an absolute 100 would have been a second full bath 😉

Great house and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Christopher's house. It was comfortable, clean, and literally had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well stocked allowing us to make a yummy Easter dinner together. Super easy to walk into town and explore. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you, Christopher!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your thoughts Jessica. It was a pleasure having you. Sorry about the patio chair I should have retired earlier - we replaced the patio set to be sure we're even more comfortable when you're next our guest. Good travels!

Beautiful home in charming neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is an immaculate home in a charming neighborhood within easy walking distance of Smith College and downtown Northampton. Our family stayed for a long weekend and everyone enjoyed the house, especially the attractive kitchen, dining and living areas. We made several meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. This home is warmly and beautifully decorated but there is no clutter. I highly recommend this rental and we hope to stay again.
