About Colleen

Colleen moved to the Pioneer Valley to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst over 15 years ago and fell in love with the 'Happy Valley'. It's eclectic fusion of culture, personalities, exploration and natural beauty connected me to the sense of place that is the Valley. There is always something happening and places to explore that you can never be bored no matter what the time of year. Colleen worked at Mt. Holyoke College, UMass Amherst and Westfield State University where she commuted from this home. 'Country Side' which is in a fabulous neighborhood within close proximity to all the colleges in the area.

Colleen purchased this house in 2006

Why Colleen chose Massachusetts

Centrally located and close to public transportation while at the same time in a rural, lush and green landscape with views of the abutting farm land, red tobacco barns and open space that I fell in love with when I first came to the area. Proximity to the Norwottuck Rail Trail makes it so easy to take your bike to stores or even Quarters a local bar/ eatery right off the Bike path.

What makes this house unique

Plenty of parking, Large home, close to shopping/ stores, bike path and the PVTA bus stop is right at the end of the street! UMass, Amherst College, Hampshire College, Smith College and Mt. Holyoke College easily accessible by bus ride, car ride or even bike ride! Close to the Williston Northampton School, Deerfield Academy , Northfield Mount Hermon, The Bement School and Eaglebrook. All just a short car ride. The homes large yard, 4 bedrooms / 2 full baths and very comfortable back deck make enjoying this home so easy!!

Our Hadley House Stays!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stays here over the past two years( wow!). Colleen is so helpful and our stays were always well attuned to our needs. The location is prime for the university and local colleges. We booked a full year in advance for 4 stays and there was never anything to worry about. Colleen quickly returned damage deposits and was terrific with communication. "Hadley house" has been a huge highlight for us and time we will treasure, wonderful group meals (8+ people) and comfortably enjoyed time together throughout this home. The landscaping is a great back drop for group photos and plenty of yard space for futbol! Thank you Colleen for a wonderful time and the use of your beautiful home the past two years!! We hope to back again. Cheers!

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The home is described well with so much provided for your stay. The beds and room layouts are restful with easy bathroom access on each floor. The home is VERY clean, son has allergies and he had a great stay. Everything is gone through rather thoroughly between stays, you can tell. I am used to doing some cleaning before getting comfortable and did not have to at this vacation home. We visited University of Mass, Smith and Amherst College while using this home as our center point of relaxation. Much nicer than any hotel and well worth it. Quiet and relaxing neighborhood with a nice deck to enjoy summer evenings on.

Will stay here again if our daughter chooses a school in Western Mass or for a getaway without hesitation.

A great place to stay with family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Colleen's place with my mom, my childhood friend, her mom and her daughter. We all enjoyed the lovely deck, playing cards around the kitchen table, chatting in the comfortable living room and being able to cook and heat up food in the kitchen. The amenities are exactly what we needed for a fun, relaxed, getaway weekend. One of the best parts about this home is its proximity to easy groceries, and the lovely towns of Amherst and Northampton. They are all close so errands can be as fast or slow as your group wants. Additionally, we loved walking down to the Rail Trail for walks and imagined returning with our bikes. We all highly recommend this location!

Don't pass this one up! Beautiful Country home in established neighborhood and very well cared for.

  • 5 of 5

Great property with all you need for your time in the Pioneer Valley. The deck was beautiful and took all we could muster to leave the lazy afternoon relaxing on it.

Rail trail is just a jaunt from the front yard, tucked away off the side of the cross street. We rented bikes a walk from the house and enjoyed a dip in the CT river after our ride.

Owners provide a well- rounded experience for their guests with many provided items. Parking in the homes driveway was easy for our group . Furnishings are well maintained and updated. Stayed to visit family and friends in the area, will plan to stay here for future times in Western Mass. Cheers!

FANTASTIC and CLEAN! Perfect fit for family!

  • 5 of 5

This home is walking distance to the rail trail bike path. Setting is a relaxed family neighborhood with low traffic and piece as well as quiet. Visiting for a family wedding and could not have been a better experience. Communication, check-in and swift return of our damage deposit. Will rent here for future visits!
