About Lee kimball
I grew up in the farmhouse, moved to a nearby town for a time a moved back 15 years ago with my husband Bill and 2 children. I've lived elsewhere an travelled a bit but always enjoyed our unique New England town. We're proud to be inclusive - there's something for everyone here. With the 5 colleges there is plenty to do from biking to concerts and museums and sporting events. I am a pharmacist and work full time but I'm a real home body that enjoys gardening and fixer upper projects. Bill is a self employed plumber who raises pheasants and chukar partridge in the late spring thru fall. Bill is an avid hunter and fresh water fisherman.
Why Lee kimball chose Amherst
My family has lived and farmed here for 3 generations, my grandfather and father had Leonard Egg farm and Bill is carrying on the tradition with pheasants and chukar partridge. Our rental space is a separate residence attached to the farmhouse.

Great price and a great place
Lee and Bill offered a great space for us to stay the weekend. Very satisfied!!
Everything and more inside!
We had a very nice night at the upstairs Kimball. The apartment is great! Clean, big, and well equipped! The king size bed is the best air bnb bed I've slept on! Fantastic! Big bathroom, kitchen, and living room. A second bedroom that we didn't need, and a 3 season room.
The site itself is a bit rough, but we were visiting friends so it didn't matter, at all! We went to the Cushman cafe around the corner for great food and coffee.
All in all a great stay! Don't worry about the site. Fabulous apartment!
We'll be staying there again!
We were in town for a lacrosse tournament at U Mass on a weekend the weather was 100degrees. The location was convenient, air conditioning was welcomed, and we loved having a kitchen we could prepare meals in. All the conveniences were there- pans, dishes, blender, full refrigerator... There was even eggs, milk and better in the fridge so we could make breakfast our first day.
Other touches were extra toiletries, mini chocolates and mints. The bathroom was huge and everything was clean.
The owners are environmentally conscious, with many rain barrels, pollinator plants, and gardens on the property.
In a short walk, you can be in the woods on a trail or at Puffers Pond for a swim or even fishing.
I'd defiantly stay here again.
An exemplary rental, with small, useful amenities, in a quiet neighborhood that made us feel like we were living in the community. A short ride from everything -- downtown and campus -- as well as nature sites. So much to see and do in this small, charming town. And the Kimball house was an ideal home base.
Amherst College reunion lodging
Great location 3 miles from Amherst College or 1 mile from UMASS. Large accommodations with extra rooms we never explored. Full kitchen with extras provided by the host. Large bathroom with tub and separate shower. A very comfortable accommodation during a very busy weekend. I will stay here in the future and recommend you do also.
UMASS Graduation. We LOVED this place! Comfortable, clean and cozy. A gem of a place to stay.
We are ideally suited to parents and children on college tour, visiting faculty, family in town for reunions, out of town wedding guests. Our location is private and quiet while close to everything. Spacious enough for everyone to relax. We are kid friendly with a swingset in the front yard, bikes to ride in the driveway, walking trail to water in the back.
