Third Floor Sweet is the third floor of our house, blocks from Smith College and close to downtown Northampton. This spacious L-shaped studio has three separate areas. The bedroom area has a king-sized bed, club chair, dresser and flat-screened cable television. The living space has two couches, practically twin- bed sized (33" wide and 60" long), that can be used as extra sleeping space. There is also a small work space with a desk. There is a kitchen area with a small refrigerator, coffee maker, electric tea kettle and microwave. There are great views out the sliding door from the table and two chairs. And the bathroom is roomy and includes a corner stall shower that has great water pressure!
You have your own separate entrance via an outdoor spiral staircase which means you are free to come and go as you please. Plus there is a small deck to hang out and watch the birds and the sunrise with your coffee.
The continental breakfast includes coffee/tea, juice, yogurt, and delicious granola. The breakfast is left for you to enjoy in the Sweet at your leisure.
If you're inclined to spend time in the room, you'll find it light filled during the day and peaceful. If your time here takes you into Northampton downtown or to Smith College, you might enjoy walking; we're five blocks from Smith and downtown is just beyond that.
This is a vibrant area to visit! The choices of things to do include seeing charming, local towns, good restaurants, music, bars, bookstores, parks, colleges (Smith, Hampshire, Amherst, Mt. Holyoke, Umass Amherst), shopping, art galleries, theatre, farmers markets, botanic gardens. Very close by you'll find historic interest, hiking, biking, all that the Berkshires offer (an easy one hour drive to Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, MASSMoCA). And there's much beauty in the Pioneer Valley itself. Hope to see you soon(URL HIDDEN)***************************************
~Please note on the Calendar that we're closed during the coldest winter months (mid Nov. - end of Feb.) So Spring is a welcome time for two reasons - Airbnb guests and warmer weather!! ~
If you're outside the house late at night or early in the morning, please be considerate of our neighbors. And drive carefully in the neighborhood; there are lots of children, runners, dogs, etc. Sorry but pets aren't allowed in the Sweet. Please turn down heat/air conditioning and leave off most of the lights when you're going to be away from the Sweet for awhile. Thank you! Main house rules: Relax and enjoy this beautiful area!!
Hi! I'm Virginia. Over the years I've enjoyed being a massage therapist and have worked in salons, fabric stores and offices.
I enjoy walking, hiking, reading, dancing and hanging out with friends. I'm fanatic about trees and advocate planting as many as possible, as soon as possible! My favorite music is blues. I enjoy most anything that has to do with people's lives.
It's important to me that my house gives off that sense of lived in and loved in every room. My husband and I don't travel all that much; we like to be home and do projects. When I do travel, I like to be near water.
I try to follow the Four Agreements from a book I read once: Always Do your Best, Don't take anything Personally, Don't make Assumptions and Be Impeccable with your Word.
