The house is 10 minutes to Berkshire East Ski Area and Notch View Reservation for cross country skiing. Southern Vermont ski areas such as Mt Snow and Sunapee are an hour's drive.
The house is ideally located close to Smith College and all of the shops, restaurants and cultural activities of Main Street, Northampton. Also in the area is Tanglewood in Lenox, Mass MoCA in North Adams, Clark Art Institute & Williams College in Williamstown and Jacobs Pillow in Becket.

Perry was helpful and concerned in providing necessary information. Everything was excellent and would recommend to any one considering a few days stay in Boston.

Perry and Assi were very friendly and helping. Everything went smooth as agreed and we had no problems at all. Departure is very flexible organised to leave the keys on specified place so there is no stress if you need to leave in a hurry. The host left us inflatable mattress, which was really great because I needed it for children.

Der Gastgeber ist einfach nur klasse: Im Vorfeld unserer Reise erhielten wir einen Anruf von ihm, um unsere Pläne abzustimmen. Bei unserer Ankunft war er zufällig zugegen und hat uns mit Rat und Tat geholfen, um unseren Aufenthalt zu einem besonderen Erlebnis werden zu lassen. Zu seinem besonderen Service gehörte, dass er
- uns mit Charlie-Karten für die U-Bahn versorgt hat
- sich erkundigt hat, wann wir einen Tisch im Restaurant bekommen können
- uns behilflich gewesen wäre, Karten für ein Baseball-Spiel zu bekommen u.v.m.
Eine Unstimmigkeit mit der Buchung (wir hatten die Unterkunft mit Frühstück buchen können - das wurde von ihm aber nicht angeboten) konnten wir unproblematisch lösen und regeln.
