Peaceful log cabin on an 8 acre property. Truly a gem to enjoy: a quiet, relaxing, cozy, sunlit cabin with a vaulted ceiling. Beautiful gardens, warm electric fireplace, and steps away from Atkins Reservoir and hiking trails. You will feel secluded but close to local attractions. Umass only 7 minutes away and close to Amherst College, Hampshire College, Smith College, and Mount Holyoke as well.

The space
The Cabin:
Beautiful open floor plan cabin/pool house with 1 bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living room. You can enjoy drinking your coffee on the deck in the morning or your fresh made dinner in the evening. Relax by the pool and take a refreshing dip. If you are visiting in the winter, snuggle up on the couch, turn on the electric fire place, and sip a warm cup of coffee/tea.

Enhanced Cleaning Protocols:
As our reviews state we have always been committed to providing guests with a sparkling clean stay. With that said we have added some additional steps to keep both you and us healthy during your stay.

~ We sanitize high-touch surfaces, down to the doorknob.
~ We use cleaners and disinfectants approved by global health agencies, and we wear protective gear to help prevent cross-contamination.
~ We clean each room using extensive cleaning checklists.
~ We provide extra cleaning supplies, so you can clean as you stay.
~ We comply with local laws, including any additional safety or cleaning guidelines!

COVID-19 Travel Order:
We are required to inform guests both at the time a reservation is made and at check-in of the Commonwealth’s current travel order and the guests’ obligation to quarantine for fourteen days after arrival or until they receive a negative COVID test result, unless they meet certain limited exceptions. Please visit the Mass(DOT)Gov website for the most up to date travel order: Mass(DOT)gov/info-details/covid-19-travel-order.

By Booking this listing, I certify I do not currently have COVID-19 symptoms; have not had close contact with anyone in the last 14 days who is confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19; will wear a mask while in public, as required by Massachusetts law; and will maintain 6 feet of physical distance from others.

Guest access
You have private access to the pool house which includes entryway, main living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. In addition you may use the deck around the pool house. Please enjoy the patio furniture we have provided. You will also have shared access to the pool area during the day. For safety reasons, we ask that you do not swim after dark. The pool is open from memorial day to labor day. We may need to open the pool late or close early due to weather, schedules, etc.

Other things to note
Please note:
- The bathroom has a walk-in 1 person shower stall. There is no bathtub available.

- Some cell phone carriers have limited service at our listing. We have provided a landline that is available for unlimited calling in the US and Canada. You are more than welcome to share the landline number with those that you need to keep in contact with. Please just share your check out dates with them, so they do not call future guests :).

- We also provide free WIFI, so you can connect your mobile devices for access to internet based communication applications.

Location

Amherst, Massachusetts, United States

We are located within 7 min of Umass and 10 min of Amherst College. Our listing is Northeast of the campuses, which is awesome for high traffic travel times. Most people visiting these campuses are coming from the other directions.

Even though we are within 10 minutes of the Colleges and Amherst Center, we are nestled on the North side of Mount Boreas, kitty corner to the Atkins Reservoir, and steps away from Robert Frost Trails. You will find yourself surrounded by quiet wilderness and only a short drive to everything else you need.

Cushman's Market and Café is a popular local spot just a 1.5 miles down the road with free wifi, great wine and beer selection, and trendy conveniences.

Come and get spoiled by a host with 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry. Whether this is your first Airbnb trip or your 10th, experience ease, comfort, and safety. Helpful without being intrusive, I’m here to answer your questions and to make sure you have a pleasant, memorable stay. I am an outgoing red head with lots of smiles. I work to hard and give away more than I keep for myself. I am an entrepreneur, who helps people start small businesses and Airbnb listings. I love people and spend time enjoying cultures and communities when and wherever I can. I am married (since 2014) to Jared, who is the polar opposite of me. Jared is quiet, calculated, and introverted. On the weekends I love to play with my puppies (Wicket & Cheddar), ride ATV's and Motorcycles, spend time with my extended family, and cook great food.
