Our stay here was our first Airbnb experience, and it was very pleasant. I stayed here with my college-aged daughter for a few nights to explore Northampton before moving her into her dorm. The room was very comfortable for us, with a queen bed for me and a twin mattress for my daughter. The bathroom had everything we needed, including spare toiletries which came in handy since my toothbrush was left at home. The house was about a mile or two from downtown Northampton in a picturesque setting. Nancy was a gracious host, who made us breakfasts each morning. We particularly enjoyed the Belgian waffles with homegrown blueberries on top. The view from the deck of the Connecticut River below was very relaxing. We also really enjoyed Nancy's cute dog and friendly cat, who we invited into our room just like home. This was a very relaxing and home-like place for our stay.

Gorgeous spot and beautiful big room. Felt like we were so far out in the country but it is only 1.7 miles from downtown Northampton. Nancy is so friendly and accommodating and makes s fabulous breakfast!

Nancy's place was a home away from home. She is such a kind host, and the area is beautiful. The airbnb is more than comfortable and feels like a retreat.

What a view! I have stayed with Nancy numerous times over the past three or four years and it is always an exceptional experience. Waking up to the sights and sounds of the Connecticut River each day was perfectly perfect. Such a comfy bed, great shower with lots of thoughtful amenities, and the grounds as usual were well kept with flowers, herbs, beautiful trees, and bushes. I am looking forward to my next trip right now! Nancy is a divine host--you'll love her and her wonderful house!

Beautiful room over looking the Connecticut River. Nancy wasn't able to be there during our stay, but all our needs were more than met! Northampton is a great town and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thanks so much!!

Nancy is a wonderful host, and her home is gorgeous. She is very warm and welcoming, is extremely generous with food and drinks, and she really made us feel like we were at home. We had a large private room and bathroom, both directly overlooking a beautiful river. The room is pretty, spacious, clean, and comfortable. Would stay again and definitely recommend to others.
