My wife Karen (Speech & Language Pathologist) and I love to travel, cook, play music and garden. We live in a great house with a large furnished 1 bedroom walkout garden apartment. The apartment has two separate accesses; one through an amazing shard mosaic greenhouse into gardens on the edge of wetlands, a sanctuary for a variety of birds and other wildlife. The other entrance is directly off the driveway. The house is a mile as the crow flies from UMASS and two miles to Amherst College and Amherst Center. Downtown Northampton and Smith College are six miles away just across the scenic Connecticut River surrounded by the Seven Sisters mountain range.
The area has become western New England's destination for arts, culture and entertainment. Southern Vermont ski areas are less than an hour away. We're two hours from Boston, three from New York and four from Montreal and Quebec.
At times the whole (five bedroom-3.5 baths) may be available during college graduation weekends. Also ask about our place on the little island of Vieques off the coast of Puerto Rico.
