Interaction with Guests

I keep a busy schedule so sometimes I may see very little of my guests after we have met and I make sure they are settled in. I very much enjoy the conversations that come up when we do connect, but have found that my guests are generally as busy as I am!

I do make it a point to be available via phone and text to address any questions or concerns.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed at Hilary's for 3 nights. It is a delightful house in a quiet neighborhood. Very comfortable - with a beautiful kitchen

  • My wife and I stayed with Hilary again prior to moving into the dorm at Smith College. This is the second time we've stayed with Hilary, and again, found her to be delightful. The home is clean and easy to find in the community. We are both animal lovers, so having Rocky the dog around and Tom the cat really makes it feel like a home away from home. Hilary is very friendly and willing to answer questions about the area for anyone who may be unfamiliar with Northampton/Florence location.

  • My daughter and I loved staying at Hilary's so much last year, we came back again this year when we were visiting Smith College. It has been a perfect place for us to stay --a lovely and cozy room with a separate bathroom, plenty of towels, wifi, and a comfy bed. Wonderful pets Rocky the dog and Tom the cat are an added bonus as both are friendly and happy to get a little love from out of town visitors. Hilary is a lovely person and I hope to stay with her again next time I am in the Northampton area.

  • I am very grateful to Hilary for offering such a great Home-away-from home. Beautifully decorated artsy home with the sweetest pets. I was also lucky to meet Hilary during my stay, she was a great host, responsive and accommodating. Using her bike to ride into town was a great perk.

  • Hilary was a welcoming and sweet hostess and her place and animals veery comforttable. She's only blocks from downtown Florence with it's grocery store, dinner, cafe, pizzeria, and just a few blocks from the great bike path that will take you into downtown Northampton on a bike or your feet. It's a great location if you'd prefer to be based away from the downtown Northampton but still be able to access it and Smith College, movies, music, and shopping - in minutes.

    The bedroom is your private space. You are welcomed to use the rest of the first floor, including the kitchen and backyard. As stated, Hilary is often out so it's close to having a whole first floor plus pets.

  • I was in the area for a writer workshop so I commuted 15 minutes to and from my destination and was gone from morning to evening. However, I felt very much at home while there. The place is clean and nicely furnished and well situated. The bedroom with private bathroom is great--a very comfortable bed, desk, ample closet space to hang your clothes, TV (which I didn't use so I can't give any reviews of its reception, etc.) I hardly saw Hilary but when we did talk she was very nice and helpful. Her pets are sweet. I think I fed the cat too much though. lol

  • Hilary's place, unlike others I have stayed at, is as advertised. It is clean and tidy and attractive. Tom the cat is a charming scoundrel, well worth knowing. Ed the turtle is the picture of grace. Hilary herself is friendly, hospitable, very responsive, and has a great sense of humor. The house creaks a bit, and in the morning there is some traffic noise from the nearby intersection. But the noise is mild. The bed is very comfortable, firm with a cozy comforter, warm even during the extreme cold Easthampton was experiencing while I was there. Bottom line for me: I would happily return for another stay.

  • Hilary is a very relaxed and friendly host. Her home is beautiful and cozy. The guest room is ideal with a very comfortable bed, a small table for work and an exclusive bathroom. Her home is just a short drive to the center of Northampton which is full of interesting cafes and shops. I'd highly recommend a stay at Hilary's place!

    January 2014
  • Hilary's place was appropriate for our needs. She provided a room with ample closet space, TV and Wifi. We also had a private bathroom. We also appreciate the ability to park off the street. Although we barely saw her, she was available by phone or email and this was fine for us as we were most of the time out.

  • Hilary is a relaxed and welcoming host. Her place is comfortable and quiet. Rocky (the dog), Tom (the cat), and Ed (the turtle) make the stay all the more sweet.
    I had more than enough privacy which I really appreciated as well.
    I highly recommend her as a host if you are coming to the area!

Hello future guests! I decided to open up my home after having had a great experience with Airbnb in California. I've lived in Northampton for over a decade and am a big fan of this area. Each season brings its own delights. Look forward to meeting you sometime soon!
