The Space

This sunny, renovated three-bedroom farmhouse in Northampton combines the best of all worlds. Just two miles from Northampton center, this home sits on a quiet dead-end road and abuts the Mill River. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one full bath with oversized spa tub and one half bath in master suite), families and small groups will comfortably enjoy the space. The house is filled with sunlight and tasteful decorations. The kitchen is large and airy with many lovely details, like vaulted ceilings, large skylights, apron sink and new appliances. The bedrooms, all of which are located on the second floor, include a master suite with king-sized bed and half-bath, a small room with a double bed and a twin-over-double bunk bed, and a third bedroom with a double futon. Fans and air conditioners are available in the bedrooms. The couch in the living room is comfortable to sleep on and there are two queen-sized air mattresses available.

Musicians are welcome to enjoy the many instruments available - a piano, full drum set, bass and electric guitar, microphone and amps. Feel free to make some music, but please be respectful of the neighbors.

This property is great for families. There is a large fenced-in yard, a swing-set, and a small river that runs from the Berkshires through Smith College campus to meet up with the Connecticut River. The river is a wonderful place to cool off on a hot summer day and a magical place for young and old to explore. There are 4 bikes available (two adult, two children) for your use and other outdoor equipment (badminton/volleyball set, bocce, soccer/football/baseball equipment, tent, etc). Additionally, there is a fire pit built with rocks from the river for all to (responsibly) enjoy.

Two porches, one enclosed and one open, make for great lounging and eating areas. There are many books (both adult and children) to peruse and wifi is available. Sorry, no cable tv, though there is a large monitor available to connect to your laptop. Plenty of games, puzzles, books and toys are available for your use.

Well-behaved pets considered.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The house was as advertised; very nice and spatious, particularly in the kitchen. Although it was too cold to enjoy the yard, we did walk down by the river, and it was beautiful. WIsh we had had time and better weather to enjoy more. All in all a lovely place to enjoy some time away from the city.

  • Very nice house for extended family to stay together. Alittle pricey on just a routine weekend.

  • Elizabeth and her family were incredibly accommodating, allowing us to use her home to host a small wedding party. Thank goodness because we had an amazing, magical time staying there. We took full advantage of the beautiful backyard (with fire pit!), the river further beyond, and her cozy home. Wish we could have all stayed there longer! Easy access to Northampton's and Florence's downtowns, and lots of parks and walking trails in the area. A little slice of paradise.

  • This home was just what we were looking for in Northampton. Clean, comfortable, close to everything. If you are looking for an upscale home to rent you may not be satisfied, but if you are looking for something warm and inviting that feels like a real lived in home this is perfect. Elizabeth has little vases throughout the house with fresh flowers, there is a couch in the newly remodeled kitchen/family room that the family loved. The newly remodeled bathroom bathtub is HUGE with a great shower head. Skylights in the kitchen and above the bed in the master bedroom were a plus. Lots of toys for kids to play with and a huge yard. We found very few places to stay in Northampton and feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay at the "Lovely Riverfront Home".

  • Elizabeth's home was warm & inviting. Fresh flowers greeted us in every room. The back yard was perfect for relaxing and the river, very refreshing. The quaint downtown was a bike ride away to enjoy the local fare and ice cream. Our whole family was more than comfortable and enjoyed the unique charm her home offered us. A great place to relax and unwind!
