About this listing
Small but bright, comfortable and cozy room is located one mile from the center of downtown and all it has to offer, yet is quiet, private, and easy to park. Super comfortable bed, large screen TV with Netflix, high speed wireless, private back deck!
Though small, this room truly is cozy and comfortable. The airy and artistic room is in a SECOND floor apartment in an old Victorian, 1 mile from the center of downton Northampton. It sleeps one, in a very comfortable twin bed, and has a private entrance...complete with spacious deck and wicker chairs to sit out in the sun. It's a small room with it's own AC unit, so it stays super cool during the hot summer months. During the winter, it has a super toasty radiator that truly makes this the warmest room in the house. You have your own 32 inch HD TV on the wall, and streaming Netflix. The room is right next to the shared bathroom...you can hear the water running or a shower in the morning, but it's not loud at all, and it also gives you first dibs on the bathroom! :)
With the bathroom and your entrance being on one side of the apartment, you have wonderful privacy and quiet. We do ask that you bring your own towel if you can! If not, we have them available so please just ask!
There are plenty of hooks for storage of bags and coats, towels and keys. Two bright windows that overlook the deck. Easy parking on the street in front of the house (no meters), Absolutely no parking in the back! There are limited spaces only for tenants. There is always plenty of street parking right at the house. super fast Wi-Fi, and wonderful touches throughout the room that feel warm and comforting. Every time we walk by this room we want to curl up and take a nap!
Downtown Northampton is a beautiful 15 minute walk through the Smith Campus, and there is easy access to the bike path, Child's Park and the bus route.

Interaction with Guests
Because we both travel so often, there are many days we are not there to greet our guests, but we make sure everything is ready for them, easy to find, and we are easy to get in touch with. When we are home, we love to meet our guests when they arrive, and then give them all the space and privacy they need. We are a text or door away if there are any questions or they need advice on what to see or eat downtown
Everything. We are surrounded by beautiful houses from the 1800's and early 1900's. The Smith Campus stretches right up to a few streets away which provides amazing gardens, a river in walking distance, green houses, cafes and libraries. There is an art museum, and then everything that downtown has to offer...great food, live music, art galleries, shopping and more.
There is a large park a 2 minute walk away, a bike path the can take you through four surrounding towns, and the neighborhood is quiet, safe and beautiful at every time of the year.
We are a one mile walk to downtown through the Smith Campus....very safe, beautiful and convenient. We are a mile from the Peter Pan bust station, and there is a bus system that runs all over downtown, northampton and the surrounding areas including Amherst. There is a stop at the smith campus less then a half mile from our home.
Parking is included and is free on the street in front of the house. Very safe neighborhood and lots of room since there is a bike lane as well. We both park on the street all the time.
Other Things to Note
Quirks we like to share about this old Victorian...We are on the second floor, an easy and wide new staircase leads you up to your deck and private entrance. Anyone with difficulty with stairs may have trouble, and always please be careful during the icy months!
Our water pressure is amazing! But be careful when turning on the water in the bathroom sink...it comes on fast! Also, the hot water in the shower is either on or off..use the cold to regulate temperature.
Since we rent another room out on this private side of the house, you MAY see another guest but we are always conscious of who is staying in our rooms and consider each persons comfort and safety.
A few rules...we do not allow pets, and definitely no smoking in the house. We prefer no smoking on the deck as well, but are flexible. We cannot allow friends of our guests to come over or stay without them being registered as guests of that room. Obviously stopping by to pick you up or drop you off, etc is fine.
Absolutely no parking in the back! There are limited spaces only for tenants. There is always plenty of street parking right at the house
The residence quarters is private, as is our office which connects with the guests hallway. Please respect our space as we do yours and your privacy.
