I currently Live in Western Mass's Pioneer Valley.
Farmers, educators, professionals.
Bob was very helpful and accommodating, both bailing me out of a situation where I needed a place to stay FAST and also refunding the remainder of my stay when I was forced to leave early because of personal health reasons. The house is incredibly cool (and beautifully decorated), and the guest room was separated from the rest of the house by an empty room and a stairwell, giving me a sense of privacy.
My only real complaint is that the house has only one bathroom, which you have to pass through an un-heated section and the living room in order to access.
The house is very typical of Deerfield. You'll feel happy to get a nice break from the city. Bob was really flexible with the timing. I will definitely go there again.
Bob and his family have a lovely home. It wasn't hard to find, and made visiting the surrounding hill towns very easy. And, we were able to bring our dog with us which was great. Thanks!
