Tidy, cheerful, and practical bedroom and private bathroom in our beautiful historic home in downtown Northampton. Perfect for a single guest; not suitable for two or more. The double bed is firm and cozy, our linens are all-cotton, & our decor is comforting, antique farmhouse. We welcome our guest to relax on our front porch with rockers and picnic table. You will get an authentic Northampton experience staying in our home.
Our entire Victorian home is neat, beautiful, and cozy. The photos speak for themselves. In warm months, our yard is replete with flowers, stone walls, fruit trees, pathways, happy backyard chickens, and carriage barn. Our place has a cool, urban homestead quality to it and reflects our environmental ethics and antique aesthetic.
Our guest will have private (exclusive) access to the nearest bathroom. It includes an antique claw foot bathtub (no stand-up shower), and an eco-friendly washbasin that diverts gray water into our toilet tank.
Interaction with guests
We are a warm, progressive, & friendly family that enjoys hosting and also respects our guest's need for privacy and quiet. We take cues from guests regarding the level of interaction they prefer, and for those who want to be social, we have made some truly wonderful, memorable connections. We are very well-heeled in the Northampton community, and therefore happy to give friendly advice and guidance about any aspect of living and recreating here.
Other things to note
We have two exceptionally polite teenage children who are into arts, reading, nature, & theater. We also have an extremely well-behaved one-year old pup, and a kitten that is wildly cute & entertaining. Neither pet enters our Airbnb bedroom, and no one, (including highly allergic folks who've stayed with us), have ever had allergic reactions to our cat. A friendly UMass professor shares our house; his space is exclusively on the third floor and he is away every weekend.
We warmly welcome considerate, non-smoking guests to stay with us. Feel free to keep food cool in our fridge but, apologies, use of our kitchen is not part of our Airbnb offering.
We're from vibrant & progressive, Northampton, MA. John is a math teacher and Lilly is a community organizer. We are climate activists and outdoor lovers.
