This is a home-away-from-home! The space includes a full kitchen, laundry, wireless Internet, a queen-size bed, and more. Located in a safe, quiet, residential neighborhood, there is a river out back for swimming and many books and toys in the apartment if you're traveling with small children. You'll also have a beautiful view of the river from the 2nd-floor back deck!

The space
This lovely, light filled second-floor studio has a full kitchen with a gas stove, an open living room with cathedral ceilings and skylight. There is an updated bathroom with tiled shower and a little "nook" sleeping area off of the living room with a comfy queen-sized bed.

The space is very open and perfect for a couple, but can comfortably accommodate a few friends or a small family as long as no one needs a closed door space. Sleeping options include a queen size bed, a very comfortable couch big enough to sleep on, as well as another single mattress that can be pulled out for extra sleeping if needed. We also have a Pack 'n Play that can be set up for little ones.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you'll need to prepare a home-cooked meal. An assortment of teas and coffee are provided. Dine on the 2nd floor back porch with a spectacular view of the river.

Our two-family house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood just down the hill from Florence Center. A 10-minute walk away, this quiet village has a several restaurants, a small grocery store and a few other shops. On Wednesday afternoons (in the summer) you can take home some local vegetables from the farmers market outside Lilly Library. We are also just a 5-minute drive from busier downtown Northampton, with Smith College and all the arts, entertainment, and fine dining the town has to offer!

The bike path that links Florence to Northampton is less than a mile away, with connections to Easthampton, Hadley, Amherst, and beyond. Feel free to ask about bikes to borrow during your stay - we have a few that can be used!

While visiting, enjoy wireless high-speed Internet. There is also a washer and dryer right in the apartment, as well as an AC unit for those hot Summer days. We try to do as much as we can to provide an environmentally friendly space to stay. We use natural cleaning products, there is a compost pile in the back yard, and your trash/recycling is taken away by bicycle!

If you have young kids, this is a great place to stay! There are many toys, books and games in the apartment to play with, a small potty, a potty seat for the toilet, and child-size swings in the back yard.

If you like to spend time by the water, you can cool off with a dip in the Mill River at the rear of the property! It is a lovely secluded place to swim, just steps away.

Your hosts, Brett, Jenny, and their 9-year-old twin daughters Maya and Ella, live in the apartment downstairs. We are happy to provide advice for things to do in area, so don't hesitate to ask!
