  • A great place for people and pets

    "I have always loved Emily Dickinson and wanted to visit her home in Amherst, but my pets made making that trip a little more complicated; however, I was lucky enough to find Patricia's Cavalier Cottage where my pets were welcomed with open arms. Patricia was there to welcome us and tell us about the property as soon as we arrived. Patricia gave my dog Barley pats and attention from the second Barley hopped out of the car and was more than happy to let my cat accompany us; the floor-to-ceiling windows in the front of the cottage made my cat feel at home immediately since he could watch birds and a few cars coming and going. The cottage is small, but it never felt small for one person and two pets. The road where the cottage is located is beautiful--quiet and shady with stone walls and barns alongside. There are also many parks nearby where dogs can be walked and Patricia has a basket of brochures and other information about the area in the cottage. Patricia provided warm scones every morning that were perfect on the chilly mornings we started our days with. The full kitchen was huge with plenty of room and equipment for cooking full meals. Before I left, Patricia brought over some Emily Dickinson DVDs that she had and told me that I could have them; what a thoughtful, caring host!"

    "This house was perfect for what we wanted - to get away from everything but be close to Deerfield, Massachusetts. The kitchen was modern, large and well-equipped. The rooms were welcoming and bedrooms very nice. The Green River across the street was a short walk to nature and adventure. It was a short drive to Greenfield, Massachusetts for groceries, antiquing, dining. We would definitely return."

  • Perfect Place

    "We stayed in this lovely home for three weeks in the fall of 2013 and had a wonderful time. The owner was delightful to work with and the house itself was exactly what we were looking for. The house and the area were described perfectly on the VRBO Website. There were no surprises. If we decide to go back to the Amherst area in the future, we will definitely try to rent this house again. I recommend this property without slightest reservation. You cannot go wrong if you decide to rent it."
