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!!

Beautiful Country House in Superb Location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our days at this home. The home is well appointed, in a low traffic neighborhood with all the amenities that we were looking for. The property is clean and well taken care of. We recommend this home to others staying in the Western Mass/ Amherst/Hadley/Pioneer Valley vicinity. Will stay here again next time we swing through. Thanks for a great time!

Cozy Home w/ Very Nice Layout. Nice Price for offerings.

  • 5 of 5

Rental worked nicely for us. Stayed during a snow storm and everything was quickly plowed and shoveled. Homeowner is easy to work with and expert communication. The price was very good for the offerings at this house. Staying here again is in our future. Thanks!

Family. Entertaining. Large group getaways stay here!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Enjoy Biking and walking the beautiful trail to the CT river or into Amherst Center or Northampton Center. Perfect location for enjoying the Pioneer Valley and the 5-colleges( UMass, Amherst College, Smith College, Hampshire College and Mt. Holyoke College). ~30 minutes to Western New England College, Baypath Univeristy, Springfield College and Westfield State University, quick trips on I-91. Very accessible with or without a car. Close to everything yet peaceful and tranquil views of farm land from the back deck and bedrooms. Great for relaxing, college visits, cookouts and family graduation get togethers!!
