HADLEY and SURROUNDING AREA
Hadley is located directly across the river from Northampton, has its own charming old town green and is historically a farming community, you can still see many farms in the neighborhood. The apartment is located just a couple blocks away from the connecticut river, the bike path and walking path that can take you on amazing sunset strolls along the water. Northampton (5 minutes away) and Amherst (15 minutes away) are bustling with many unique shops, cafes and restaurants, small movie theaters, art and music shows. Nearby there are many amazing outdoor sights to see- hiking to the tops of Mt. Holyoke, Mt. Tom, Mt. Sugarloaf, swimming, kayaking in the Connecticut, and enjoying the vibrant farm community!
I am a young professional who attended Smith College and just moved back to the area this past spring. I am interested in food, plants, biking and would be happy to share my knowledge and love for this area with you.
House rules simply are respecting everything in the apartment during your stay and leaving the apartment as you found it. No smoking inside the apartment but guests may smoke out on the porch.
A perfect experience. When I arrived, the apartment was immaculate and Elisabeth had left all kinds of amenities. Not only stuff like fresh sheets and towels and bath products, but even fresh flowers and chocolate! She obviously takes great pride in providing an exceptional experience. Also, I was there for a month and the landlord was very responsive the couple of times I needed to call him. The apartment is clean and comfortable, with wonderful sunlight streaming in first thing in the morning. It's also in a great location: 10 minutes to downtown Northampton even in rush hour traffic. Hadley is a nice town, too! It offers some lovely country roads for walking or biking (sunrises and sunsets are gorgeous), and some really interesting history to explore like a 17th century graveyard and many 18th century houses. I give my highest recommendation of Elisabeth, her apartment and the area. All are top notch!
