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

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.

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.

The Brooke was a beautiful home. The room was quiet, comfortable and very clean. It was exactly what we were looking for. Linda was very accommodating since we had an odd schedule for when we would arrive and depart.
My only regret was not having the time to enjoy a cup of coffee on the back deck.
Linda was an excellent hostess and her BnB was lovely and clean. I am so glad I chose to stay at her place. We slept very well all three nights. Her place is on a very quiet country road yet it is easy to get to and close to Amherst and Northampton. The view from the breakfast table looks out on a meandering stream and a state forest.
Linda was very nice and welcoming. The location is quiet and convenient. The view from the dining room is just unbelievablly gorgeous. I highly recommend.
Linda was an incredible host and extremely accommodating for my first Airbnb experience. Her home was scenic, private, and she was very informative about the surrounding area. Thank you for having me as a guest in your home. I had a great time and I really appreciate all that you did for me including the thoughtful rides when my car rental did not work out. I hope to see you again!
I booked the room for my friends, they accompanied their girl to school. They left very good comment for Linda. The house is so beautiful, host is very nice and enthusiastic. Linda picked up them from school, help them to rent a car, etc. Everything is so good. On behalf of them I want to say "Thank you so much, Linda"
What wonderful immaculate accommodations. Linda is such a gracious host. Definitely recommend!
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.

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!
