The porch is a nice place to gather for drinks and is shaded by a dutchman's pipe vine.

Tamara was a wonderful host, very communicative and welcoming. We enjoyed chatting with her over coffe on the morning. The house is a lovely old New England home, tastefully furnished, with a warm friendly feeling. The small room with futon and bunk bed was cozy and comfortable. For me, the bunk bed mattress on the floor was a bit too firm, but that's just me. Great shower downstairs. Sweet old pussycat adds the final homey touch. The location was perfect for us, in walking distance of the middle school where we were attending a weekend workshop. I will go there again if I ever have the need to be in Greenfield overnight!
Tamara is very friendly and provides us lots of help. We had a great time there. We hope that we could come back sometimes, my whole family would miss Tamara for sure, and also her cute cat.
As promised, this was a wonderfully situated home on a quiet New England Street --conveniently located less than 5 minutes from the downtown area and most importantly, where we had to be at 6:30am the next morning!
My daughter and I spent a very comfortable night at Tamara's house. Even though she was out of town for our visit, she was easily reachable and left us clear instructions. Her friendly cat, Bo, was there to greet us... and see us on our way.
I'd be happy to be able to stay here again the next time we are in the area!
This was my first Airbnb adventure and I'd say it was a positive experience!
We love Tamara and her beautiful house! Not to mention Bo the super cool cat.
Tamara was not in when we arrived but communicated well how to get in. We were met by the welcoming committee though... Bo was very welcoming.
When Tamara got home, she chatted to us for ages even though she was wanting a shower before bed. She gave us drinks and settled us down with a movie on her couch. She is so cool that she still uses VHS! (The dingo ate my baby).
We hope to return to New England one day and will definitely want to meet with Tamara again.
If you are considering booking to stay with Tamara, don't think twice, just book it.
My friends and I spent a very comfortable night at Tamara's place. Though she was out of town at the time, she left us clear and welcoming instructions. Her home is beautiful and the neighborhood is peaceful--overall a lovely weekend getaway!
Beautiful house, and Tamara made us feel very welcome and offered advice on things to do in the area. Great stay!
