We offer a cozy, comfortable, studio apartment located in the heart of the Pioneer Valley right on the bike path, a walk to Look Park and easy access to hiking. We are a 10 minute drive to downtown Northampton with lots of great restaurants and music. Our proximity to Snow Farm, Smith and the other area colleges makes this an ideal overnight spot for parents in town for a brief visit, people attending area workshops and classes or for those looking to stay longer and explore the area.

The space
I am a carpenter and have been lovingly re-crafting our beautiful old house since my partner and I purchased it some 20 odd years ago. I have literally uncovered some of it's original aesthetic and charm, while improving and modernizing its infrastructure. Our studio rental sits under the same roof as our home and has its own private front and back entrances, both of which offer a place to sit and relax.

Recently renovated, the studio is outfitted with handsome custom built cabinets and counters and a new bathroom. The kitchen, with its dorm size refrigerator, is fully equipped and has a sweet dining corner. The remainder of the space is taken up with a comfortable double bed and sitting area where you can kick back with a good book or just unwind for a spell.

Other things to note
Starting July 1, 2019 there will be a 5.7% Ma. lodging tax. This is a new law and Airbnb does not yet have a way for you to pay it in advance on their website. If you will be staying after July 1, 2019 I will be obligated to collect this tax. I am actively seeking an answer as to how I am expected to do that and will clarify that here when I know.

Location

Leeds, Massachusetts, United States

Though now almost exclusively residential, Leeds was once a booming mill town with shops, a hotel and several taverns. The Mill River is right across the street from the house. The history here is rich and we live along what is known as the Mill River Greenway. Around the neighborhood and along the bike path you will discover signs that commemorate and tell some of the story of our area.

You can follow the African American Heritage Trail which is just a short drive or bike ride away in Florence, MA. Among the places on the walking tour are the former homes of Sojourner Truth and Frederick Douglas. They both lived in Florence in the 1800's where there was an enclave of abolitionists. A number of whom were self-emancipated former slaves.

World class theater and dance are not far off. Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival, Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Company, Williamstown Theater Festival and Chester Theater are all within a comfortable driving distance for an afternoon or evening jaunt. As is Mass MoCA if you want to experience some art.

If you enjoy cross country skiing, you can drive 45 minutes to Notchview, a wonderful spot in Windsor MA.
