House Rules

My home is warm and relaxed and I hope guests will feel at ease and comfortable. The house is tobacco free and smoking, if necessary, is okay well out of doors. Please, no overnight guests and, finally, I like it to be pretty quiet by 10:00. This is my home and I trust my guests will respect it and leave it as they find it when they arrive.

We decided to make this overnight trip at the last minute and we came upon Joyce's listing fairly late in the evening. We really liked the feeling we got from reading her descriptions of herself and her space, as well as reading some of the comments. We thoroughly enjoyed our int…

Getting around

There is ample parking. Sadly, public transportation is not convenient, although buses leave from Smith's campus quite frequently taking you to any of the other four colleges - Hampshire, Mount Holyo…
