Eco-friendly Stay, Walk to town
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/511674

NOTE: When you contact me the first time, please read our eco-friendly policy below and let me know what laundry detergent you normally use. This helps to determine if you are a good fit and is not to do with using the laundry facilities. We provide eco-friendly detergent for your stay.

Please feel welcome to contact me for longer-term reservations during September-May or for the Smith Social School program from June-August 15. I often host visiting scholars and Smith students.

I normally do not accept requests for reservations for only two nights far in advance. I wait until the calendar starts to fill up to add some shorter reservations for only 2 nights. Thank you for your understanding!

WELCOME
Welcome to a slice of European hospitality in one of the hippest towns in America! This is a place where artists and writers can find inspiration or scholars can research. Here friends and family can come for weddings, graduations and other milestones and enjoy a beautiful setting to compliment those celebrations. You won't find the studio comparable to any other space available, it's very unique and the price is modest, for what you will experience!

Imagine a large yoga studio all to yourself and lots of room to dance. Dream and play, have  your own private retreat. Large windows looking out into beautiful gardens.

A 1250 ft.² studio, loft-like open space and separate building behind our historic Queen Ann Victorian house from 1885. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens and winding pathways.

A short walk to downtown Northampton and Smith College campus. Ideal for parents, family members and alumnae visiting the five colleges here in the Pioneer Valley. Close to hiking and bicycle trails. Also ideal if you are coming to the Valley to do a workshop or training,  for a few  weeks or months to work or study, or look for a longer term rental.

A 7 min. walk takes you to town and about 40 restaurants and many galleries and performance venues. The neighborhood Is all around wonderful with stellar community participation and commitment, and has a number of writers, filmmakers, and artists.

The gardens are permaculture-based with many native plants and trees from apples, pears and blueberries to bamboo, Yucca, dogwoods, sweet ferns, herb garden and perennials. Behind the neighborhood and beyond you can walk to an Audubon sanctuary.

For many years the studio was donated for concerts, poetry readings, yoga classes and two Shakespeare companies rehearsed here.

There is a new queen size Tuft and Needle mattress on the main bed and on the second queen-size bed is a futon which has a foam core which makes it more like a normal mattress. The sofa makes into a single bed.

WE ARE ECO-FRIENDLY
This is an eco-friendly space, particularly suited for people who generally use natural products. If you do use natural products and no essential oils, you are a perfect fit! Please let us know what laundry detergent you normally use when you inquire! This helps to determine whether we need to implement a  special protocol to accommodate you in order to maintain a chemical free space for all of our guests.

OUR ECO-FRIENDLY CHALLENGE
The issue is not about doing laundry during your stay and we are happy to provide you with an eco-friendly detergent. The host is sensitive/allergic to commercial laundry products and fabric softeners and is dedicated to maintaining an eco-friendly space for others with the same needs or an eco-friendly lifestyle.

All bedding is line dried to keep it as fragrance free as possible and this is quite labor intensive. Nevertheless, people who are booking in advance, often commit to changing over to an eco-friendly detergent, and by the time of the reservation, it works out fine. If you shop at Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe's, co-ops, natural foods stores, you are likely to be aware of eco-friendly detergents. Thank you so much for your consideration and with that in mind, we would love to host you and offer a very unique experience! Please feel welcome to ask me any questions around this policy.

The washer and dryer are located in the back pantry of the main house.

EVENT PLANNING: Please let us know if you are planning an event, as there may be an extra charge depending on what is needed to create the perfect event. We have extra folding chairs available.  We may need to include a security deposit.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Blog post from my daughter:

GROWING UP IN AN URBAN OASIS

It’s a rare and wondrous thing to grow up in a house where you are a quick walk from the center of town and at the same time watch bears and rabbits pass through your yard. The blueberry bushes, water garden, lush flower beds, and fruit trees make the gardens that surround the main house and studio an informal sanctuary for animal visitors. As a child I loved climbing the apple tree like the squirrels and watching the frogs gather on the lily pads. The old apple tree fell over a decade ago, but with half of its trunk still firmly rooted it continued to produce blossoms and fruit, and attracted more animals with its bounty more accessible low to the ground. There is something especially magical about seeing a skunk sneak through the underbrush or a wild turkey dart across the grass in a place that is far from remote or wild.

I grew up in a house with spanish cookbooks and Barcelona style decor and design in a town teeming with restaurants and writers, music and multicultural events. The house itself is a classic Queen Anne Victorian with stained glass windows, turreted roof, and quartered oak floors. It has always been a home for the meeting of cultures—New England architecture and European food, furniture and art books. In the studio space I watched a Shakespeare company rehearse, listened to a local reggae group perform one night, and a poetry reading another. Home was both cosmopolitan, and a place where I could pick blueberries and write quietly by the edge of the water garden.

Having traveled and lived in other places now, I realize even more what a unique and beautiful thing it is to be located in the heart of a town so full of exciting events and artists, in a house that feels international and at the same time is itself a kind of calm oasis. The tall trees separate the house and garden from the road, and make the yard and water garden feel like a world of its own.

Misafir erişimi

I was a dancer and traveled extensively all over the world and based myself in Barcelona, Spain for almost 10 years where I appeared in 40 television commercials. I also had an antique shop and art gallery in the fishing village of Cadaques where Salvador Dali and many other famous artists have lived. Many of my friends were architects, designers and artists. I have also spent a lot of time in Kauai. I more recently spend part of the year in Brazil in a wonderful community where people come from all over the world. For many years I have been dedicated to making a difference in the world through a nonprofit organization I founded called Remineralize the Earth. I am passionate about nature, hiking, creating a new vision for a new Earth and sustainable communities as well as food, film and culture.
