We are quiet after 10pm. We are environmentally considerate.
Liz and Jeff were wonderful, welcoming hosts. The room matched up perfectly to the description and photos. The bed was comfy, the walk to and from town was short albeit chilly, and they answered all my questions about where to grab late night food. I particularly appreciated the small touches like the extra blanket, towels, and mason jars for drinking. Thanks for a great albeit whirlwind overnight!
Great place! It was very cute and cozy. Neat, comfortable and well kept. Liz and Jeff were friendly and helpful with suggestions for the area.
Very cool house and very cool people who made us feel quite welcome! It's super close to town, and the room was nice.
My boyfriend and I had a lovely time at Liz and Jeff's beautiful house! They are located just a 5min walk from the Peter Pan bus stop and less than 10mins to all the shops and restaurants in Northampton. It was an easy trip even in the snowy February conditions. Both the room and bathroom were clean, neat, cozy, and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend!
cozy room and comfortable bed. street parking was easy, even in the snow!
I really enjoyed my stay here. The entire family including the dog was charming and informal, like staying with long time friends. I appreciated being allowed to use the kitchen and fridge which was not part of the listing. The location was very close to downtown and I felt perfectly safe walking alone in the quiet neighborhood at night. It's a cozy room with a big radiator so it got hot for me sometimes but cracking a window took care of that. I found that the green foam ear plugs from CVS comfortably and effectively blocked the radiator noise at night.
Sorry to hear about the heat being noisy. Sometimes when it is very cold (like 10 below zero that we had over the weekend) the heating system has to go into overdrive and it is more "clangey." We notice it is noisy when there is a large drop in the temperature. We will continue to try to minimize this as much as possible. Also, we encourage everyone to please speak up about anything while you are staying with us, because the radiators in the guestrooms are adjustable and certain adjustments can bring down the intensity of the heat and can minimize the noise they generate at times. Some guests don't mention things until after they leave, and we would love to hear from you while you are still staying with us, especially if you are staying for a few days, as it gives us a chance to improve your experience with us. Helena, thanks so much for your feedback.
The room was exactly as described. The location is perfect, I was able to walk to downtown Northampton easily. The room is clean and comfortable, with an excellent mattress. It was a very cold night, near zero degrees, but the room was nice and warm. I didn't get a chance to meet Liz and Jeff but they are clearly wonderful, experienced hosts.
