The space

A gorgeous, modern studio apartment, with private entrance, set in one of the most elegant gardens in the Pioneer Valley. A short walk from downtown, terrific restaurants, delis, hot tub spa, great bakery, Emily Dickinson's house, brewpub, and Amherst Cinema, yet near lovely walking, biking, hiking trails, it has intimate views of the garden from its many windows and patio door. There is a gazebo set in the garden offering a shady viewpoint to appreciate the flower/foliage splendor. (It is a four season garden so it is provides beautiful views even in winter.) The queen bed is extremely comfortable; the studio is elegant but simply furnished with bamboo floors, beautiful artwork, rugs and wall murals. The kitchen has small fridge, microwave, electric kettle, utensils, plates and cups. The bathroom is small but well appointed with tiled tub/shower and more garden view. Plenty of closet space in apartment. Wi-fi is free and works even outside. A large screen is available for casting onto from your tablet, phone, or computer (for example, casting onto screen your Netflix or HBOgo)

Driveway Parking. No pets. No smoking. Accommodates only 1 or 2 people. A futon is available for separate sleeping arrangements.

It was lovely to host you, Steve. Sorry about the TV. Generally people have been satisfied with chromecasting from their own devices. Hope to see you again sometime. Carol

I enjoyed my two week stay whilst visiting on business from the UK. Carols apartment was perfect for my needs. I particularly enjoyed sitting in the lovely garden to unwind after a busy day.
