Casual, Contemporary Comfort within an easy 4 miles to Mount Holyoke and Hampshire Colleges, and the MacDuffie School

The Space

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 is a pleasant and modern room with two twin beds (separate as one swings out from the other to accommodate two guests) and a computer desk. Beautiful sunsets out this window. 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.

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.


THE OTHER ROOM (under a separate listing) is a charming room with queen bed, arched window and cozy window seat affording a view of a farm field across the street.

Rooms are on 2nd floor. Non-smoking. No children under 12. No pets.

  • We had a great stay here. Linda was a gracious host, and her house was very well kept and welcoming. The bedroom was quiet and the bed comfortable, and Linda served a very nice breakfast of yogurt and cereal with plenty of coffee and little pastries. Oh, and the view looking out the back room in the morning was beautiful. Linda was also flexible with our arrival time, which I appreciated.

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!
