Overview

About the property

Newly renovated second floor, three room apartment in owner-occupied home. Central location and short drive to many area amenities including: the Town Center; Bike trails; Holyoke Range hiking; Amethyst Brook for nature walks; UMass; Amherst College; Hampshire College; Shopping in Amherst and Northampton; Great selection of restaurants; and more! A very short walk to various quick food options including Dunkin Donuts; Subway; Pizza/Calzones; Breakfast/Lunch restaurant; Chinese food; ATMs; and convenient stores. A great space for someone looking for a solo retreat in a safe, respectful home. Great too for a couple looking to enjoy some time away. A relaxing space for parents coming to Amherst to visit their children attending one of the local colleges. The home is a 1782 Colonial and consists of three apartments. Owner lives on first floor and there are two apartments on second floor. The other apartment is currently under an annual lease to a UMass doctoral student who is very nice and quiet.

The bedroom is large with a new, very comfy Queen bed, two relaxing chairs, cable TV, window AC (in season) and WIFI. A small den area has a dining table for two, a swivel chair for reading and some shelves for guests belongings. The kitchen galley has a gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and cupboards are stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, pots, etc. The bathroom has a small shower and lots of shelving.

There is a front and back private entrance to the apartment. Guests may use the front porch for their pleasure (seasonal). There is off street parking in the back of home. The owner is a psychotherapist who works full-time in Springfield, MA., yet available in the mornings, evenings and weekends to support your various needs during your stay or by cell phone at anytime. The home is on the bus route which has very frequent runs during the academic year. It is a mixed neighborhood of owner-occupied and student rentals as is much of this college town.

The rate is $125/night. Special weekly rate of $750.!

The owner is friendly, open and caring and would be most interested and welcoming to guests with similar traits :) Looking forward to your visit/holiday!

Convenient, comfortable, and clean

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here so, obviously, we like it. It's only a mile from Amherst center and a reasonable drive to both Northampton and South Hadley. Melanie is a gracious and conscientious host. Very comfortable and cozy for two.

Great cozy apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for four nights in July and it was great. Plenty of room (bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, study) and nicely decorated. A/C was a godsend in the middle of summer and I was able to cook all my meals with the stove and provided utensils. Rear parking was very convenient and I had ample privacy (when desired). I look forward to my next opportunity to stay here!

Owner's Response: Thanks Dieter! It was a pleasure to host your trip. Your ability to attend your bike event in the incredibly high heat was impressive :) Thanks!
