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!!

The home is a serene experience!!! I'm so upset that we were there for a tournament!!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a tournament that didn't allow us to turkey experience all this home offered.

We wanted for nothing! From pulling up to its beautiful landscaping to its private deck were I enjoyed my coffee!

You had it stocked with everything we could have dreamed of and for that we can't thank you though. The beds were so comfortable and the couches too!!

The home is in the perfect location. Close to the University in town

Thank you again for allowing us to focus on the reason why we were there! Next time I'm coming back to enjoy your home without any plans!

We had a very nice stay at this property. From out of state and it was easy to find with an attractive layout. Well cared for and the description was right on point. Thanks for a nice time here yet again.

Spent time at Amherst Cinema and Amherst College Museum.

Perfect place to relax while attending an event at Amherst College!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to stay for attending an event at Amherst College. House is a short drive from Amherst College, all of 5 minutes. Located in a nice neighborhood with bountiful space inside and out. Plenty of driveway parking. House is very clean and organized. The house and bookings are professionally maintained by the homeowner who was very quick and easy to work with. She knows the house inside and out, was readily available during our time there.

Ideal 5-Colleges Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed to preview local colleges and this house was ideal for it. There were three of us and everything was great no complaints. We will definitely stay here again if our daughter chooses any of the surrounding 5-colleges. Thanks for a great place to stay!
