This 7 room house is across from a conservation area in a lovely neighborhood in south Amherst. The street is a one mile circle, perfect for walking. Graduate students are in some of the rooms during the school year. You will feel free to make yourself at home immediately. I live downstairs but will be happy to chat or to let your do your own thing.

The space

We are friendly and welcoming here, but everyone is busy and independent. The community has lots to do, and if you don't want to walk the mile to the bus stop on Rt. 116, I can give you a ride into town or to the University of Massachusetts. Above ground pool in the summer time. No air conditioning in the house although I have purchased a portable one and am working on setting it up. Other rooms in the house may also be available at the same time.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to use the whole upstairs, living room, kitchen, men's and women's bathrooms and deck off of the kitchen. Guests have enjoyed the lush green and many birds as they have breakfast on the deck.

Other things to note

There are 3 cats from Turkey who come and go through their cat door down stairs. Also, for those not familiar with New England, it occasionally can get very hot in the summer, but usually doesn't last long. In the winter it is warm and cozy. The wood stove downstairs gives additional warmth.

Ms Dael's house is one of the most comfortable places I've ever stayed in. The rooms are all well furnished and well kept and clean. Her cats are lovely and a visit from them was always welcome. We stayed in the room at the end of the hallway and it was brilliant. The area the house is in is full of incredibly nice and helpful people and it's very green. Ms Dael's always willing to help out and she has the best tips ever. :) I would definitely recommend this place to people looking for a stay in Amherst, either long or short.

Dael's home is very nicely appointed and well-managed for guests, with a lovely rear deck complete with bird feeders. Made my visit to Amherst very enjoyable.

Despite my trip being very short, I had great stay. Was very comfortable and Dael even alerted the other people staying in the house that I had a race that next day. Everyone was very quiet and I super appreciated it! Slept great and placed 3rd in my race!

Dael was very friendly and helpful and this as a perfect place for us to stay while our Daughter was at UMASS Amherst for her Orientation. Just a short 10 minute drive to campus Dael allowed our friends that live in Holyoke that we had not seen in years, to come over visit and hang out on the back deck. We would definitely stay again.

Dale's house was a good place to get my feet for my extended stay in Amherst. The place was clean and tidy, and although the room could get hot, there was a fan provided to keep things cool. Dael was really helpful in providing details about the area, and the other guests were typically open and helpful. The house is about 15 mins from the nearest bus routes, and Dael is willing to help out with transport, though having a car to get around could be useful. I recommend Dael's place for good value accommodation if you need somewhere to stay in Amherst.
