A great New England getaway or perfect for visiting faculty. One bedroom with king sized sleigh bed, second bedroom (accessible thru the first) has 2 twin sleigh beds - one is an adjustable bed for those that need just right position to sleep well), full size kitchen, extra big bathroom with walk in shower and tub/shower. Room enough for everyone to get ready for an event or a cozy stay in. There's also a bonus 3 season porch for extra room to spread out on the loveseat or oversized recliner. The living room has a big tv and comfy furniture for watching a show or reading.

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.

Home away from Home!

Lee was a wonderful host who catered to our every need! She even brought toys up for our toddler. Fantastic! We will try to stay here again.

Kind of "unique", in a good way. Would go back.

  • 4 of 5

You drive into a very large parking lot next a farm. You kind of say, "what did my crazy wife book?"..... and then you get inside and it is very nice! We stayed on the upper level. I wish it had been warm enough to use the very nice sun room.

We were really busy though, looking at colleges, so we did not spend much time actually at the house. But the owners were very nice, and Lee gave our family a HUGE bag of food that she could not eat. In fact, it weighed about 7 pounds and we "maybe" at 2 pounds of it.

If you need pizza / sandwiches delivered, I recommend "Amherst Pizza"....... pretty darn good.

Great location for visiting the colleges and area. Extremely comfortable, clean rental and stocked with everything the traveler needs. Great hosts. The fresh eggs and homemade cranberry bread over-the-top special.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This unit worked out very well for us. There was plenty of room for four of us and it was very clean and well-stocked. It is just a short ride to UMass campus and downtown Amherst with easy access to Rte 116 and Northampton. We are already booked to return.

Car: recommended

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.
