The quaint local Cushman cafe is in walking distance, and 3 minutes to free bus to Umass, Amherst center and Hadley shopping. Less than two miles to campus, surrounded by nature and a quiet atmosphere, you have everything you need to enjoy home away from home. We have a shared full kitchen, bath, living room, deck and fireplace.

The space
The light and bright converted porch room with private entrance has a high cieling and is a gentle step off the large living room. Fully carpeted and comfortably appointed, it steps out on to an expansive deck with stairs directly to the parking area. With all natural bedding, the kingsized organic cotton and latex futon with organic cotton sheets and real down comforter , the largest room in a four bedroom space is great for couples
The kitchen is spacious and cleaned only with natural products with a grand mahogany counter top overlooking a dining room ready for a home cooked meal. The living room is comfortable with library and cozy fire place.

I am both a host and a traveler. As a visitor I am quiet yet friendly, enjoying yoga and seclusion. I am a mother of two older teenagers and professionally a scientist. I enjoy exploring new places, sunshine, the ocean, long walks, and being in nature. As a host I enjoy immensely sharing my home and my library with my many international guests. Being so close to the University, most of my guests are from other countries coming to here to start a post doctoral fellowship or to teach or begin graduate school. Maggie's Place is an international guest house for visiting and transitioning scholars and we welcome everyone.. I love to care for people, and am very health oriented. When i travel I like to cook my own meals, so I provide a full kitchen and hope to create an environment welcoming and homey to all. I prefer a natural environment, with all cotton and natural fiber bedding, avoid use of chemicals in cleaning or laundry. Often when we have guests that are enjoying each others company we will have a shared meal together sharing cuisines from different cultures. My father served as registrar of the University of Massachusetts in the 60's and 70's. He saved all the stamps from the international applications coming from students applying from abroad for admission to the University in 1959 and 1960. I have in my home a framed stamp collection of those stamps. I am grateful to be able to receive so many wonderful guests from around the world into my home.
