The space

**Please ask any questions/introduce yourself before booking and let me know what time you plan to arrive so I can arrange my schedule to meet you. Check in is between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM. Check out time is by 8:00 AM **

There is strong wi-fi throughout the house. Nice cotton sheets, fluffy towels and basic toiletries are provided. I have two dogs who do not interact with guests and two cats who love attention.

This guest suite is on the fourth floor of my house. There are lots of stairs! There is another guest suite on the third floor.

I've had some guests (usually people who don't live in cities) say they thought the area around here was sketchy. This is a diverse, urban neighborhood. There are lots of poor people and people of color who live here. It is also a very safe and friendly neighborhood. I have lived here for 15 years and I love it. If you are uncomfortable in a city and being around poor people and/or people of color, maybe this isn't the best place for you to stay.

Guest access

Top (fourth) floor of house.

Erica is an excellent host and offered a VERY welcoming experience. She is very approachable, always smiling, helpful and happy to provide suggestions for dining and what to visit in the area. Both my husband and son were attending a Martial Arts camp at Springfield College, and I was staying alone in an unfamiliar city. I loved that I was only 6 minutes away from Springfield College to watch the daily camp events. I was most grateful that Erica pulled me under her wings and made me feel safe and welcome. The Beautiful historic neighborhood of Victorian row houses developed in 1870 and 1890 is safe and friendly. This two separate room suite is very private with an immaculate private bath is an entire top floor. Plenty of space to relax, read, lounge and work. The bedroom is air conditioned, and the beds are very comfortable. The large separate room had an open table for dining or as workspace, nice seating with lots of reading material, refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. I was able to complete vital computer work efficiently with the reliable wifi. Visiting Springfield will be an annual trip and Erica your home will be my little home away from home every June!

Beautiful old house close to downtown Springfield. Air conditioning is only available in the bedroom. Bathroom seems to have been recently renovated.

This is a good value. Erica lives on a historic street of beautifully cared for nineteenth century homes. She texted me the address about an hour prior to my arrival and met me at the door. The upstairs suite is spacious and comfortably furnished. The house is near the museum and other points of interest in Springfield.

Interesting architecture and loved the sitting room. Convenient to local museums and restaurants. Parking could potentially be difficult at certain times of the day.

I feel I picked the best experience of New England architecture, even if it was just one night. Erica's home is very well kept and reflective of the era. If you're up for staying in a piece of history, this is the place. She provides modern amenities that do not clash with the original design. Plus, I thought I was only occupying a room and shared quarters and I ended up getting an entire floor:)

I felt blessed to find such an ideal location for my stay with a host who patiently provided info about a city I'd never visited, accommodated my ever-changing arrival-time, was attentive yet gave me tons of privacy, and whose home was comfortable, neat and tidy.

Erica's place exceeded my expectations! It was a block from the museums (go check out the new Dr. Seuss Museum!) and only three blocks from Downtown. I had the whole top floor with a private living room area, bedroom and bathroom. Erica was very accommodating about check in and check out, and her cat was adorable and super friendly. Also, the photos on her listing are beautiful, which should be noted. They are very true to the actual experience. I will be back! Highly recommend!!
