You can't get closer to Smith College than this! Beautiful apartment in historic home across the street from the main gate of Smith College and a short walk to downtown Northampton - perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the heart of town or the Smith campus. Restaurants, bars, shops and hiking and bicycling trails are all very accessible. Enjoy the campus and all the amenities of Northampton.

The space

Well-maintained, tasteful and cheerful, this one bedroom apartment is part of a three family home nestled within the Smith College campus. Built in 1841 by an abolitionist lawyer, this home was rumored to be part of the Underground Railroad.

This is a second floor apartment on this side of the building opposite Elm Street, which makes it pretty quiet at night (much less street noise than being right on Elm Street, which is the main road through the Smith campus).

The kitchen is small (very small) but totally usable and there is a set of cookware, dishes, etc. I keep the unit stocked with coffee, breakfast cereal, milk and half-and-half, and snacks. Feel free to help yourself to any and all of this food.

The apartment is not large – it is a generous one bedroom by New York standards and certainly larger than any local hotel rooms, but guests should not expect a sprawling space.

Guest access

Guests have exclusive access to the apartment with key code access. This is not a shared space so guests will not have anyone else in the space with them while they are there. Access to a ping-pong table and studio space above the garage is available upon request. Unit has one dedicated parking spot with extra parking available if guests will have more than one vehicle.

Interaction with guests

I live in another one of the units in the building and am readily available for questions or issues while I am around. I work during the days on weekdays and sometimes travel on weekends so I'm not always there in person but I'm always available by text or phone.

You can't do better on location if visiting Smith College. Justin was very responsive to my questions, and provided wine and snacks for our stay. The bed was comfy, and the apartment was much more spacious than I was expecting based on what I had read before booking. All in all a great experience and I expect to book here again.

Justin's place is practically on Smith campus. It's also a short, easy walk to downtown Northampton and everything you need. The place is clean, quiet, and comfortably furnished. Great bed, including super linens and pillows. The kitchen is very small (no real counter space) but I cooked all my meals there for 10 days and managed just fine. Justin left a lot of nice snacks and basic supplies, which was appreciated. Of all the Airbnb owners I've rented from, Justin was probably the most responsive and helpful, even checking in to make sure things were ok. I appreciated his hospitality and will rent this place again.

The stay was lovely and I highly recommend it. Plenty of space and a quick walk from downtown. Great for the price!
