A block away from the bike trail and Main St. in Florence neighborhood. Cozy private room looks out at woods. Some decor is my own painted furniture, art quilts, and stained glass. I love meeting people and introducing our "Paradise City". Please note that the house is tiny, 888 sq ft and worn-looking, though it has its charm. It's simply furnished. Both rooms may be occupied, and there's one shared bathroom. Quiet and consideration needed.

House Rules

Courtesy and consideration for others makes for pleasant visits. It's a fairly quiet, peaceful household, so if you love loud music, wear earphones. At the same time, it's not a monastery and I do like having fun and enjoying good company. I try to be approachable and flexible with reasonable requests. Quiet, well-behaved pets are welcome. There is no smoking permitted anywhere on the property. Light alcohol use (1 or 2 drinks) is okay. Drunkenness isn't okay. No drugs.

Lisa was very accommodating and kind to my pup and I. It was a simple experience and what I was looking for. I would stay there again.

Nice quiet location. The home was cozy, and the host was very nice and accommodating. Basic necessities were provided (bed, chair, plenty of blankets, etc.). No complaints.

Very great experience. Lisa was very friendly and the room was exactly what I needed. Very comfortable and cozy. Lisa was there to help with anything you needed to ask. Although I was there for only a weekend it was a memorable one and Lisa's hospitality reality made that possible. Highly recommended

I arrived late in the evening and left early in the morning. Lisa was very welcoming, and my room was fine for a good night's sleep: a comfortable bed and a quiet night.

Lisa is kind and lovely. I was very comfortable and took her suggestion on the breakfast place down the street and it was great. She is also a great artist!

Lisa User Profile

I'm originally from New York, and have lived in the Northampton area for 25 years. I'm a former social worker, and am a multi-media artist and designer. I love meeting new people, love dogs, and I badly play mandolin and fiddle. I promise not to subject any guests to my playing. I love good company and conversation, yet am sensitive to those who are seeking privacy, peace and quiet. Empathy, kindness, and the Golden Rule are central to my style. I love words, language, most art forms, and aesthetics. I have an offbeat, spontaneous, but always good-natured sense of humor (so I'm told). Well-behaved dogs who like other dogs are welcome. I've travelled to the Southwest, Mexico, and California. I've made three trips to Europe, once "vagabonding" around Europe for three months. I hope to do much more travel.
