About Me
My husband and I are semi-retired and live across the street from Smith College, in the midst of a vibrant small city, Northampton, Massachusetts. We have a large house that has two flats - one is a 1-bedroom and the other is upstairs in a 2-floor 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. We are interested in either swapping houses with visiting faculty or other professionals from western Europe, for one to three months, or in offering our downstairs private flat for rent. We love to travel to cities everywhere to explore neighborhoods, architecture and local cultures. What we most love about living in Northampton (and I say this as someone who lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20 years) is how much this great little New England city has to offer. Our house is directly across the street from Smith College, which itself has a steady offering of music, drama and dance performances, art exhibits, lectures, beautiful walking paths and gardens. We believe in walkable and bikeable communities, with vibrant downtowns. Our house gives us and our guests exactly that. We can walk or bike to almost everything we need. We are also a 5 minute walk to the bus to Amherst, another lively college community. My passion is chamber music - I am a violinist (especially love playing Beethoven quartets), and love to cook, eat, grow food on the little plot at the side of the house, go out to restaurants and support our local farmers at our year-round farmers' markets.
