In the room, you will find information on WiFi, a spare key to the house, towels, extra blankets, a bath matt and a drying rack for damp items. Shared bathroom next door.

A new "green" house rebuilt in 2006--legend has it on the site of Amherst's brothel. The only working girls now are my small flock of hens beside the shed that work for chickenfeed. Across the street is the Newell Court community gardens. An abundance of flowering trees, bushes and plants make an Amherst springtime a delight for the senses. Autumn finds the trees aflame with color.

With the exceptions of my bedroom, the other guest room and my loft office, guests are free to make themselves at home inside, on the deck or grounds. The Jungle Grrlz (my chickens) love visitors and will bend your ear dishing more dirt than Delta Sand & Gravel up the road in Sunderland. They love bugs more than the NSA.

Depending on your schedule and mine we can have a gab fest or just the bare minimum. I follow the middle path, so I can be still or chatty. I am also a good listener. I am available either in person or by text, email or my cell phone to answer questions or help with directions or suggestions.

I have great neighbors, some older like me, some young college age and some 30-somethings with beautiful children. We have a community garden so there is a lot of neighbor to neighbor interaction. You might think you are on some country lane, but Newell Court is a private gravel way that is only a few minutes walk from the Amherst Common. Our neighbors include the Amherst Women's Club and the Emily Dickinson Museum. The high school ball fields and outdoor track are close by at Amherst High. We are one mile from the UMass Campus, a 10-minute walk to Amherst College and a short bike ride to Puffers Pond. The PVTA buses make it easy to get to Hampshire College a short ride down route 116 South.

The Pioneer Valley Transit Authority moves students, residents and visitors with a modern fleet of busses and a convenient schedule throughout the region. There are taxi and limousine services that offer rides to Bradley International Airport in Hartford (Windsor Locks), CT an hour away. A walking, biking, rollerblading path connects Amherst with Northampton. If you are looking for boating, the Connecticut, Deerfield and smaller rivers flow through the area. The Valley and the hill towns surrounding it offer a world of easy to challenging bicycle trips. Amherst alone offers 50 nature preserves for walking and birding. The Holyoke Range and Sugarloaf offer spectacular views for hikers. You can drive to the summit of Sugarloaf except in winter. A two-minute walk will take you to the Elements spa where you can relax in a hot tub, schvitz in a sauna or unwind with massage therapy or other bodywork. Next door to Elements is the Lumberyard, one of Amherst's fine dinning establishments or in the same block there's Bruno's for free delivery of pizza, subs and salads. The Amtrak train station with trains to and from Vermont and New York City has moved to Northampton, but can be accessed by PVTA bus. Greyhound, Peter Pan and Megabus all have stops in and around Amherst or Hadley.

Amherst is central to the Five Colleges, Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke (South Hadley), Smith (Northampton) and the University of Massachusetts flagship campus. The "Happy Valley" as it is affectionately known abounds with arts, crafts, culture, education, farming, sports and recreation. So if it is music, theater, apple picking, museums, dinning, shopping or nature the area is the equal of many Northeastern cities but with less traffic and more convenient parking. Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost were poets who made Amherst their home as have many other notables both historic and contemporary. Whether it is enjoying a Shakespeare play at the Renaissance Center, a "contact high" at Gungafest on the Amherst Common or a homemade ice cream at Bart's there's something for everyone and every taste in the Valley.

Enjoy your stay! I am easy-going but there are a few rules you must follow so that I too can enjoy your stay. Shoes off in the house--I have an assortment of slippers. Please, no smoking, no heavy fragrances and be careful with food and drink in the bedroom. When Conrad Hilton was asked what he had learned from his many years in the hotel business, he replied, "The shower curtain goes inside the tub." There are actually two shower curtains, please make sure the inside one goes inside the tub and seals the spray from going out onto the floor. I have had leaks into the bathroom ceiling downstairs and I would like to avoid repeats. It is a quiet neighborhood and so everyone can get a good night's sleep, please keep conversations low and tread lightly after 11 PM. Kitchen, laundry, and dining area are here for your use, but I am fussy about the kitchen: please clean up after yourself don't leave dirty dishes, food scraps or spills. Dishes cleared of food scraps can go in dishwasher. Cutlery, pots and pans get hand washed and put in drying rack. If you scorch, you scour until shiny. We recycle and compost. If you plan on cooking, please let me know when you book the room because it is a small kitchen and we may have to arrange a schedule so everyone can do their cooking. My wife tends to monopolize the kitchen if she is cooking (she was a professional chef and baker). Help us recycle and compost by asking what gets recycled and where the bin for paper is and where the bin for plastic, metal and glass is. All recycle has to be clean of food.

I am married and semi-retired. My wife, Eunice, is a Nurse Practitioner at Boston Medical Center and on the faculty of Boston University. She lives in Boston and visits Amherst mostly on weekends and sometimes brings her cat Fred. I had a 30-yr career in video production specializing in medical and science programs and documentaries. I worked as an engineer, editor, scriptwriter and director. I returned to university working for and studying with the world-renowned evolutionist and visionary Lynn Margulis for the decade before her death. I am now working on her digital archive at ScholarWorks at the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at UMass-Amherst. I do this archivist work in my home office. For recreation, I like to kayak, fish, hike, camp, ski and snowshoe. I raise a small flock of chickens. I have a Master's of Science in Geography with an interest in environmental evolution. I am a contributor on the Precambrian to the Big History book, The Biggest Picture - From the Big Bang to the Development of the Big Bang Theory. I am the webmaster for the Environmental Evolution website. I am also a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London.
