Simon's place was very convenient for my visit to Amherst College. It was only a ten minute walk from the campus and right round the corner from lots of restaurants and shops. The house is on a quiet, leafy street. My room was small - as I expected, from the photograph - but very clean; the bed was comfortable and Simon had left a note for me with all the information I needed, and even told me I could help myself to stuff from the fridge. I only saw Simon for a few minutes in the morning, but he was very gracious, and helped me make breakfast. The vibe in his place is very friendly, informal and welcoming.

Simon's place was a wonderful place to stay for the night! It's centrally located but set off on a semi private street. Amherst is a beautiful town and this place is perfect if you're a solo traveler or with a one other companion. Would definitely recommend.

My name is Simon. I live with my daughter in a big house in downtown Amherst. I run a manufacturing business in a nearby town, which gives me a busy but flexible schedule. In my spare time I enjoy swimming, motorcycling, reading, contra dancing, and sometimes even hanging out with my friends.
