|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Large Victorian home directly across the street from Smith College and literally steps away from the Commencement site, with parking. We live in the upstairs 2-floor unit and vacate to make the entire house available for you and your family during Commencement weekend. There is a 4 night minimum for the weekend.
The house includes two separate fully furnished flats, each with kitchen, laundry and full bath. The first floor flat includes one large bedroom, two large living areas, kitchen, bath, and laundry. The upstairs unit is two stories, with a lovely outdoor dining porch, 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds, and a loft above the garage (very cool private space) with an inflatable queen-sized mattress, connected to the upstairs unit by an outdoor walkway. There is a secluded little garden in the back with a small deck and gas grill. Our house is on a quiet, friendly street and is comfortably and tastefully furnished. We have wireless internet throughout. You can park as many cars as you can fit in the driveway. Our car will be in the garage.
We're a short walk to the great restaurants and stores of downtown Northampton. Northampton is a great area to bike, and we have bicycles you can use.
I live in Northampton, Massachusetts, a lively and friendly college town in the western part of the state (not Boston!). I am married and love to travel to cities to explore neighborhoods, architecture and local cultures. What I most love about living in Northampton (and I say this as someone who lived in the Bay Area for 20 years) is how much this great little New England city has to offer. Our house is directly across the street from Smith College, which itself has amazing things going on all the time - music, drama and dance performances, art exhibits, lectures, beautiful walking paths and gardens. My husband and I believe in walkable and bikeable communities, with vibrant downtowns. Our house gives us and our guests exactly that. We can walk or bike to almost everything we need. We are also a 5 minute walk to the bus to Amherst, another lively college community. I love to meet new people and am fascinated by other cultures.
I'm a foodie in every way - I love to cook, eat, grow food on the little plot at the side of the house, go out to restaurants and support our local farmers at our year-round farmers' markets. I also am a violinist (love playing Beethoven quartets), am a no-mercy Scrabble player and an avid reader and walker.
