Make yourself at home in the Blue Room, in a shared apartment in a spacious, historic home a short walk to the very center of downtown Northampton (.6 mile to King & Main). It has a pressed tin ceiling, original wood flooring and is very private. The bed is comfortable, guests say. You will have access to the kitchen, dining areas and to a large deck with a view of the Holyoke Range and the Fairgrounds. Parking for one car in the driveway. The bathroom is shared. We are on busy Bridge Street.
This historic house evolved with the needs of its owners over generations so that one section feels almost modern, "west coast" while the other has well preserved historic finishes. The overall effect feels organic and unforced. The siting is dramatic, at the edge of downtown, on a bluff above the floodplain. The layout promotes privacy and provides spaciousness.
