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.

comfortable and private
This was a good place for four old friends to gather and catch up. It was private and comfortable and perfect for us to curl up and talk, laugh and launch from while taking advantage of all the area has to offer.
Clean, peaceful, comfortable, generously provided for all the needs.
My husband stayed with my son during their college visits. They were both touched by the owner's hospitality and generosity: snacks and basics in the fridge, toiletries and all the necessities. Clean, beautiful, comfortable in every respect, and a lovely setting. This will definitely be our base if our son will end up one of the nearby schools! Thank you!
everything we needed
We had a lovely time. The place was well-appointed and had everything we needed for a nice stay. My daughter is a little physically challenged and appreciated the extra handles in the bathroom and the kitchen was really well equipped. We will stay again when we return to the area.
Such sweet hospitality.
A lovely property with quick to respond hosts. I came for a conference at UMASS and invited my family along to enjoy local attractions. We felt like we were right at home. We also appreciated Lee & Bill going the extra mile to provide some really nice food for us to use during or stay. And Bill's pizza suggestion on Thurs evening was right on point - SO GOOD!
Clean, spacious, thoughtful snacks in kitchen, convenient location made for a great weekend stay.
Owners contacted us when we forgot items after checkout and we were able to return and pick them up! We really appreciated the extra thoughtfulness.
Clean and comfortable
Very nice and comfortable apartment. It is part of the main house with a separate entrance. Great location for visiting the area! Thanks to the hosts for the snacks and the delicious homemade bread. Wish we were able to stay longer.
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.
