Enjoy a relaxing & quiet stay in this 1790s built New England home located in the picturesque historic village of Amherst. This newly renovated guest suite with private entrance is the perfect starting point for big & small adventures like walks through the historic village, hikes in nearby forests, "leaf peeping" during the Indian Summer, snowshoe and skiing trips in the winter and so much more. Then cozy up in this Scandinavian inspired room with spa-like shower and wood floors throughout.
The guest suite has its own entrance and is on the opposite side of the main house where we live. The bed room and bathroom have been totally remodeled including hardwood floors and an amazing walk-in shower with large rain shower head. Through the guest suit the original beams have been left exposed creating a modern mix of the old and new. Plan to have a quite and peaceful nights sleep.
Guest have access to the guest suite area, garden and front yard.
On arrival we will show you the guest area and answer any questions you may have. If anything else arises during your stay you will always be able to text or call us.
We want our guests to feel comfortable and are happy to give you as much privacy as you prefer. Other then welcoming and showing you the guest area no other "interaction" is required. ;-) At the same time we also enjoy getting to get know our guests! If you see us outside or in the garden we are always happy to hear about your adventures and share our stories.
As mentioned before we have a large, super sweet and friendly King Shepherd girl that will bark on your arrival. If you love dogs you are more than welcome to meet Leya and become an instant best friend. However we don't take it personal if you prefer not to interact with her. We totally understand ;-)

We are an easy going couple that loves discovering new places. We enjoy going on road trips, camping, snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, gardening and just taking it easy. When we can we love visiting Switzerland, we both have roots there. We are big time DIY'ers and have been remodeling our home since we moved here in 2016. Before moving to Amherst we lived in the Bay Area, California. We love Cali, but wanted to make a change and experience something totally new that included amazing seasons and snow in the winter! We ended up buying a beautiful fixer upper colonial home, in the middle of one of the nicest New England villages and have been doing our best to bring it back to life.
We can't live without:
-Our dog Leya
-Dreaming Big and living life to the fullest
