This is an actively lived in apartment, so there would be food in the fridge, clothes in the closets, etc...but the place is always kept very clean, and ready to host. If you are looking for a private place to stay, this would be ideal.
We are an artist and musician who split time between our two apartments, allowing us to rent out the other to fellow travelers.

Guests have access to every room except our back office which is tucked out of the way. They have three great porches to choose from on sunny days or warm nights.
Interaction with Guests
When we rent out the full house, we usually just leave a key for our guests in an easy location, and allow them to check in anytime after 2:00. Check-out is noon, and we ask that they just leave the key when they do. We have signs and notes around the house to help guests find what they need, and send a detailed description of the place and the amenities.
Everything. We are surrounded by beautiful houses from the 1800's and early 1900's. The Smith Campus stretches right up to a few streets away which provides amazing gardens, a river in walking distance, green houses, cafes and libraries. There is an art museum, and then everything that downtown has to offer...great food, live music, art galleries, shopping and more.
There is a large park a 2 minute walk away, a bike path the can take you through four surrounding towns, and the neighborhood is quiet, safe and beautiful at every time of the year.
We are a one mile walk to downtown through the Smith Campus....very safe, beautiful and convenient. We are a mile from the Peter Pan bust station, and there is a bus system that runs all over downtown, northampton and the surrounding areas including Amherst. There is a stop at the smith campus less then a half mile from our home.
Parking is included and is free on the street in front of the house. Very safe neighborhood and lots of room since there is a bike lane as well. We both park on the street all the time.
A few rules...we do not allow pets, and definitely no smoking in the house. We prefer no smoking on the deck as well, but are flexible. We cannot allow friends of our guests to come over or stay without them being registered as guests of that room. Obviously stopping by to pick you up or drop you off, etc is fine.
The residence quarters is private, as is our office which connects with the guests hallway. Please respect our space as we do yours and your privacy.
Our stay was absolutely perfect. Kevin and Heather were available for questions anytime, their house was clean and very comfortable. I loved the back porch!! It was the perfect place to relax with our family. The location could not be better - just seconds from downtown and directly across from the gorgeous Smith campus. The house was very quiet, too! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
We stayed for 2 nights at Kevin and Heather's beautiful apartment. We were greeted warmly by Heather and then left in private for the rest of our stay. The apartment is very clean and all the beds were comfortable and there was ample room for the four of us. We loved the artwork and décor and the relaxed feel about the place.
Its a about a 15min slow walk into town and we also visited the College which is 5mins walk. Great restaurants, bars and shops nearby. Osaka Sushi was fantastic!
A great stay thank-you both x
We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was exactly as advertised. And we loved the antiques and art throughout the place. We'd definitely consider another stay.
We had a great stay-the apartment is both beautiful and comfortable. Having three bedrooms worked out really well for us and two teenage kids to all have our own space. It was an easy walk to downtown and we enjoyed sitting out on the screened porch. Would definitely recommend if your heading to Northampton for a visit.
My husband and I had a very comfortable stay overnight along with my in laws! Despite being on a major road in town, the apartment was very quiet. Everything was well labeled in the home and hosts were very gracious and quick to communicate. The screened in porch was an ideal place to have coffee and it was such a short walk to Main Street.
Kevin and Heather were excellent hosts and their place was everything that we expected. If you are heading to Northampton we totally recommend staying at their place. Their Victorian apartment is very tidy, uniquely decorated with Kevin's artwork and just minutes from downtown. Thanks, Lee & Brianna
Kevin and Heather's home was fun, very comfortable and spacious. It is a safe walk down Elm Street to downtown Northampton. We stayed in Kevin and Heather's home twice during the past school year to visit our daughter at Smith College. We highly recommend their place and hope to return. The hosts were very prompt with communications. Thanks for sharing hour home with us.

Hello! We are a couple living and creating (a touring musician and an artist and photographer) in Northampton, MA. We have spent our days hunting antiques, found objects, repurposed furniture and making art to fill and decorate our home. We love to share this space with people, and hope one of our rooms will suit you!
As hosts, we treat our guests the way we like to be treated when we travel...at times you want to ask where the best places to eat and explore in a new town are, and at times you want to simply slip into a comfortable bed, watch a movie, read a book and relax. We give you all the space and privacy you need, and are also here if you need anything or have any questions.
We look forward to hosting you!
