**Check out our new sister listing downstairs if you have children or can't find the exact dates you want: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/6678641.

Bright open loft space with two sleeping spaces in CENTER of town adjacent to Nagle Bike Path/Walkway. Steps to restos, bars, shopping, & city parking.

Beautiful loft in the center of America's #1 Small Liberal Arts Town (AKA Lesbianville, USA, so LGBT friendly:).

UPPER LOFT DESCRIPTION

Bright, spacious (850 sq. ft.), loft-style, 1+ bedroom apt. on the building's top floor with separate entrance of Strong Avenue.

Immaculate condition with plenty of parking, situated right on the Northampton Bike Path, this unit in the award winning Strong Block Condominiums (on Strong Avenue) is literally steps to the center of town, and a short 5-min. walk to Smith College.

SLEEPING:

Two queen-sized beds, the second sleeping area being a loft bed with a privacy curtain in the main room (the first is a separate bedroom with ensuite entrance to the bathroom).

PARKING:

HIghly recommended that you park in the City's covered garage, 2 short blocks away - rates are quite friendly - first hour is free:) Search "parking Northampton" for specifics and map - Airbnb does not allow us to post the link her in this description.

If you want to work more for your parking, there is plenty of metered 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. parking (free overnight) directly outside our condominium, including "longterm" 10-hr. meters.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Steps (200 steps:) to frequent PVTA buses - do a search for "PVTA" for up to date schedules. Several taxi companies in town (reasonable), and Smith College has a Zip Car location. Several taxi companies in town - including 24/7 service.

HOUSEKEEPING

Freshly washed bedding (hypoallergenic pillow cases), towels, Swiffed floors, antibacterial wipe of all bathroom/kitchen surfaces between bookings. Forced air (allergy filter) heating, so you may find an occasional dust ball:)

Zero-fragrence for sensitive skin laundry powder available to wash your bedding - just email us the week prior to your visit:) Tide Sport the rest of the time.


AMBIENT NOISE - CITY LIFE

The balancing side to being steps to bars and restaurants, is that this 10-unit Condo Development is still only "steps away" right up until local closing times of 1 a.m. (or in a few cases 2). Street side second floor windows should be latched to ensure an airtight seal, and blinds and curtains should be drawn to provide a sound barrier (complementary ear plugs provided for light sleepers:). The HVAC system is shared between the upper and lower unit - air vents can be closed (and magnetic covers can also be placed over them) to increase quiet.

CHILDREN

Loft living features open spaces - in our case, the railing over the stairs is relatively open, and the loft bed in main area is accessed by a wooden ladder - and so to prevent any accidental mishaps with children, we recommend they be 11 and older (babies in cribs/strollers/held should be fine) in order to stay here.

OWNER

Smith College Professor live in the unit not being rented.

Right in the center of America's #1 Small Liberal Arts Town - AKA "Lesbianville, USA" :)

The PVTA bus stops are close, the Peter Pan bus station is two blocks, I-91 is a 3-minute drive - and now (Jan. 2015) the AMTRAK train stops 300 feet from our front door:) (and no sleep disturbance train noise:)

House Rules

1. "Respectful" noise as the ventilation system is shared - relatively quiet by 11:00 pm (no loud music/TV).
2. You can reduce noise transmission to the downstairs unit by covering the A/C vents. Remember to open them up when the A/C starts - or turn off/down the thermostat.
2. We try and live "green" - so use recycling, turn off lights/appliances after use.
3. A quick text to Tim if you need anything.
4. During winter keep thermostat at 72F.
5. Wireless is "linksys" - ask for password.
6. Do NOT clean or wash dishes on departure - leave key on bar and use handle lock on departure.
