About Lydia Kann Nettler

I'm a therapist and artist and have lived in this home for over thirty-five years. I love travel and the outdoors, and therefore am able to share my house with guests whenever I am away. I grew up in New York City and Los Angeles, but have lived in Northampton my whole adult life, preferring its small town feel and gorgeous natural surroundings to the big city. When I want a dose of urban jazziness, NYC and Boston are a short ride away.

Lydia Kann Nettler purchased this house in 1981

Charming house, comfortable beds, lovely hostess

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I with three teenage boys in tow, stayed here to visit our daughter at Smith. The house was clean, comfortable and interesting, the yard (garden) beautiful and the hostess kind, prompt and through. We had a lovely stay and would happily stay here again.

This place was perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

This house is elegant and cozy at the same time. And the location can't be beat.

We were in Northampton for a wedding ... the same weekend as Smith College graduation (gasp!). Needless to say, it was pretty busy in the area. But Lydia's house is a wonderful respite. It sits within walking distance to downtown Northampton, and within walking distance away from downtown ;) It's nestled into a lovely grouping of trees and has a great lawn and patio for hanging out in the sunshine.

The house itself is clean and light and Lydia makes the whole place super accessible. Eight of us stayed here very comfortably, and very happy.

And Lydia herself is wonderful! She's communicative, kind and helpful. Thanks for helping make this a great weekend for us!

The house is available for dates specified and for Smith College Graduation and events. Please contact me if questions about available dates. My cancellation policy is more strict around event weekends... if they are booked well in advance, I will require that the deposit is nonrefundable if the booking is cancelled less than six months in advance. The special event weekends such as a college graduation are usually booked many months in advance and I won't be able to fill the vacancy close to the date of the event. Thank you for understanding.

The house is big and excessive use of either heat or A/C can become prohibitively expensive and wasteful. I assume most people will be considerate and energy conscious. Thank you.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
