Casual, Contemporary Comfort within an easy 4 miles to Mount Holyoke and Hampshire Colleges, and the MacDuffie School
TWO PRIVATE ROOMS
Our home in Granby is close (4 miles) to Mt. Holyoke College in South Hadley as well as Hampshire College in South Amherst (4 miles), and within 3 miles of the MacDuffie School in Granby, and provides easy access to the other colleges in the 5-college area (U of Mass, Amherst and Smith).
This contemporary home not only offers comfortable and convenient accommodations, but lovely views of a meandering brook with its inherent birdlife. Maple trees abound. The Pioneer Valley is a wonderful mix of outdoor recreation, historical sites, great restaurants, and much more. Hiking trails are very nearby.
There are two rooms: THIS ONE: a charming room with queen bed, arched window and cozy window seat affords a view of a farm field across the street. Central air-conditioning and ceiling fans. The bathroom is yours alone if the other room is not rented. Plus there is a half-bath on the main floor.
THE OTHER ROOM (under a separate listing: (phone number hidden)) is a pleasant and modern room with two twin beds and computer desk.
Enjoy a continental breakfast of fruit, cereal, yogurt, pastries, coffee/tea along with what has been called "a million-dollar view!" There may be a hot dish for those staying a few nights.
Rooms are on 2nd floor. Non-smoking. No children under 12. No pets.
Rural yet close to South Hadley and Amherst, and the area colleges.
Preferred arrival time: mid-afternoon to evening and morning check out (10 AM) unless other arrangements are made.
Each room accommodates 1-2 guests.
We had a pleasant stay at The Brooke. The house is lovely, as was the room, and Linda was a welcoming hostess. The breakfast was simpler than those at other B&Bs, but quite good - and in fact my wife and I don't always enjoy consuming enormous B&B breakfasts every morning, so it was actually a relief. The neighborhood is quiet, and there is a very nice view of the Bachelor Brook. One thing guests may wish to keep in mind is that one of the two rooms is very much light-filled in the morning. The second room is smaller but easier to keep dark. This may matter if you are light-sensitive.
The Brooke is an amazing B&B. The house is beautifully designed in a traditional style but with all modern comforts. And the view is phenomenal. It is conveniently located very close to Mount Holyoke and Hampshire College - and an easy drive to all of the other area colleges.
Linda is everything you could hope for in a host. She is friendly, relaxed and helpful but also respectful of guest privacy.
I have already planned my next stay at the Brooke!!
Linda's home was beautiful and she made us feel welcome offering many suggestions on places to eat and explore. Highly recommend.
Linda is very nice and pleasant to talk to. Her home is lovely. It is clean and comfortable. The view of the forest and creek from the breakfast area is beautiful. It is extremely easy to get to Amherst and Hampshire College, although her location is initially hard to find. It would be very difficult after dark; GPS was key.
The room is a basic guest bedroom. There is no TV or radio, although there is secure wifi. The only area to sit in the room is the bed or window bench. The bathroom is easily accessible immediately across the hall. It is shared with any other guests, but not the hosts.
Breakfast was nice and adequate. We had granola, yogurt, milk, fruit, muffin, and coffee.
The Brooke B&B is a comfortable place to sleep.
Our recent stay at Brook B&B was a weekend getaway for Diane and I and a chance to see the fall foliage. Our host Linda was most gracious and provided a warm and comfortable atmosphere in a truly beautiful country setting. Our room was exactly as pictured, was well appointed and cozy.
We enjoyed some time with Linda during breakfast ( great coffee, Granola and all the fixings). Linda is a gracious host and very helpful with local attractions and dining establishments. We look forward to the opportunity to return.
This was our first stay at the Brooke B&B and will not be our last either. On the contrary, we are looking to staying again soon, perhaps for more that just one night.
The location is excellent, the view definitely a plus, and the accommodation absolutely fabulous. Linda is the perfect host and make you feel at home in a please that indeed feels like home.

About the Host, Linda
Recent retirement has sparked interest in hosting and sharing this lovely home. We moved to this bucolic setting 3 years ago. While enjoying the quiet and beauty it affords, staying active and connected is important. Linda enjoys yoga, workouts with friends, live music and dancing, art movies and shopping. All can be easily accessed within a few miles. Wesley still works and in his spare time, stays active running, imbibing in craft beer, and doing the outside chores. We have many years-worth of knowledge about "the valley" and are happy to share!
