About Christopher

I'm an enthusiastic restorer of beautiful old homes and fell in love with this charming turn of the century Dutch Colonial. After 6 years of restoration I find I'm away from the area more and more for extended business trips or visiting relatives. When I'm in the area I use the detached office studio.

Why Christopher chose Northampton

Location, location, location. Situated 2 blocks from Smith College campus, this home offers the best of vibrant Northampton within walking distance in any direction, while being nestled into a mature quiet neighborhood with tree lined streets and sidewalks.

What makes this house unique

If outdoor living space is your thing, you'll love the covered front porch with rocking chairs and bistro set, as well as the furnished backyard garden and patio with 45' waterfall, gas BBQ, gas fire-pit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks Christopher for a great stay - really nice house with all we needed. Love the waterfall and closeness to town. We have rented many VRBO houses and this is the best yet. We look forward to our return next summer.

Great house and neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Christopher's house. It was comfortable, clean, and literally had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well stocked allowing us to make a yummy Easter dinner together. Super easy to walk into town and explore. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you, Christopher!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your thoughts Jessica. It was a pleasure having you. Sorry about the patio chair I should have retired earlier - we replaced the patio set to be sure we're even more comfortable when you're next our guest. Good travels!

Beautiful home in charming neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is an immaculate home in a charming neighborhood within easy walking distance of Smith College and downtown Northampton. Our family stayed for a long weekend and everyone enjoyed the house, especially the attractive kitchen, dining and living areas. We made several meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. This home is warmly and beautifully decorated but there is no clutter. I highly recommend this rental and we hope to stay again.

Wonderful house for wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My now-husband and a few friends stayed in this house for our wedding weekend. It's a beautiful house with a lovely open downstairs area. We had hair and makeup done for six of us girls in the kitchen and living room and it was a great bright, sunny space for this. It's also a great location! After the wedding we had an after party in downtown Northampton, and my brand new husband and I walked home afterwards. Beautiful end to the night. All of our guests were from out of town and everybody loved visiting the Pioneer Valley - I'll rec this house to anyone coming back for another visit!!! Nice owner, easy communication, very welcoming. Thanks for everything!!

Nicely appointed, comfortable and clean. Perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

Upon our arrival, the back yard was not as advertised due to remodel work on the garage but Christopher responded professionally to our concern. Otherwise the house was spot on the description and was quite charming. We found everything we needed for cooking meals in. We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.
