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

Let me start off by saying we had a lovely stay at this home. I would absolutely recommend this home to others. The beds are comfy and the living room furniture is great for lounging around. The linens are new and crisp. The owner takes wonderful care of this home and it is very important to her that guests have an enjoyable time providing better amenities then we had even anticipated ( stayed at 5 other VRBO's ). Highspeed wifi and cable package. Kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans and cooking accessories etc. Large roasting pan and the ss oven were frequently used. Plenty of towels for our group of 10. The house is close to northampton, amherst and hadley centers with tons of shopping a 3minute car ride door to door. Thank You we will look you up again soon.
Great stay at Colleen's house for homecoming weekend with friends. Accommodating host. Easy check-in and quick to answer questions. Location is terrific and property amenities very good. Will re-rent for future alumni events.
Perfect for our Family Weekend at UMass. Colleen was responsive and informative about the house and surrounding area. House was clean and stocked with everything we needed. Many thanks!
We have stayed at this house multiple ( 4+) times now. Each time we stay it is a relaxing, worry-free, clean and well maintained country home! The owner loves this home and area. This is evident in her detail oriented style and guest centered approach. Great amenities are offered with the property. The layout with kitchen and dining room intimately flowing together offers a connected feeling while preparing group and family meals. Numerous pots, pans, utensils, dish and drinking glass options. We have booked two more weeks with Colleen already. This time we enjoyed staying at the house the majority of our week and cooking meals. The oven is new, my apple and pumpkin pies came out delicious!
Thoroughly had a terrific stay. The house is exactly as described. Immaculately clean. Location is a quiet inclusive neighborhood set back from the traffic on route 9 with access to a back road that makes getting around during peak times easy. Short walk or minute drive to everything you need. Went to Amherst Farm Winery and dinner at Judies in downtown Amherst, easily Ubered.
Colleen's Countryside home is just as advertised. It is extremely clean, and the casual furnishings were perfect for my family - no worries about breaking things. The location is fantastic for visits to Amherst, Northampton, or just about anywhere in Western Massachusetts as it is within 5 minutes of Interstate 91.
Our family will stay here again!
