About Colleen

Colleen moved to the Pioneer Valley to attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst over 15 years ago and fell in love with the 'Happy Valley'. It's eclectic fusion of culture, personalities, exploration and natural beauty connected me to the sense of place that is the Valley. There is always something happening and places to explore that you can never be bored no matter what the time of year. Colleen worked at Mt. Holyoke College, UMass Amherst and Westfield State University where she commuted from this home. 'Country Side' which is in a fabulous neighborhood within close proximity to all the colleges in the area.

Colleen purchased this house in 2006

Why Colleen chose Massachusetts

Centrally located and close to public transportation while at the same time in a rural, lush and green landscape with views of the abutting farm land, red tobacco barns and open space that I fell in love with when I first came to the area. Proximity to the Norwottuck Rail Trail makes it so easy to take your bike to stores or even Quarters a local bar/ eatery right off the Bike path.

What makes this house unique

Plenty of parking, Large home, close to shopping/ stores, bike path and the PVTA bus stop is right at the end of the street! UMass, Amherst College, Hampshire College, Smith College and Mt. Holyoke College easily accessible by bus ride, car ride or even bike ride! Close to the Williston Northampton School, Deerfield Academy , Northfield Mount Hermon, The Bement School and Eaglebrook. All just a short car ride. The homes large yard, 4 bedrooms / 2 full baths and very comfortable back deck make enjoying this home so easy!!

Awesome!Stayed multiple times!Definitely Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house multiple ( 4+) times now. Each time we stay it is a relaxing, worry-free, clean and well maintained country home! The owner loves this home and area. This is evident in her detail oriented style and guest centered approach. Great amenities are offered with the property. The layout with kitchen and dining room intimately flowing together offers a connected feeling while preparing group and family meals. Numerous pots, pans, utensils, dish and drinking glass options. We have booked two more weeks with Colleen already. This time we enjoyed staying at the house the majority of our week and cooking meals. The oven is new, my apple and pumpkin pies came out delicious!

Perfect Home. Ideal for a girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly had a terrific stay. The house is exactly as described. Immaculately clean. Location is a quiet inclusive neighborhood set back from the traffic on route 9 with access to a back road that makes getting around during peak times easy. Short walk or minute drive to everything you need. Went to Amherst Farm Winery and dinner at Judies in downtown Amherst, easily Ubered.

Very clean and well maintained home with nice comfortable beds!

  • 5 of 5

Colleen's Countryside home is just as advertised. It is extremely clean, and the casual furnishings were perfect for my family - no worries about breaking things. The location is fantastic for visits to Amherst, Northampton, or just about anywhere in Western Massachusetts as it is within 5 minutes of Interstate 91.

Our family will stay here again!
