Mount Holyoke College

 Two bedrooms available in my three bedroom apartment about two miles south of Mt. Holyoke campus in South Hadley Falls. My previous tenants have been faculty and students of MHC and they have all found the space and location agreeable.  Both rooms have several big windows, hardwood floors and high ceilings. You would be sharing the apartment with me, a recent UMASS graduate and one other person. I am fairly low-key and easy to live with. There isn't a lot of loud music or partying on a regular basis but a little is ok. There is one cat here, his name is Stewie, and he is very very chill (except for some evenings when he runs around like a maniac). It's fairly important that you like cats as he is very affectionate and will expect you to give him some attention from time to time.  The building is about 2 miles or so south of Mt. Holyoke college. If you have a car, it is very convenient. If not, there are a few bus stops nearby but they are not Five College buses so you need to pay $1.25 and if you're going to Amherst, etc. the bus runs every two hours.   Ideal tenant is: - responsible (I can't pay the rent if you don't) - mature (clean up after yourself, no crazy parties) - respectful (we're students at the moment so keep the music down at night, don't touch my drum set) - someone who likes cats (there will be cat hair on things, but Stewie's always there for you when you need him) - not voting for the Donald (I've never been political in a apartment listing but that just wouldn't work out at all) - liberally minded (I guess that follows the preceding point) - ok with hearing a little noise from the other tenants (it's an older building and the floors and walls carry noise more than newer homes, just want to be transparent) - a relaxed, somewhat balanced person who isn't going to bring negativity into the house - likes good food, jazz, wine, cheese, crusty bread and Modern Family re-runs   No laundry in the building but there's a convenient little place a short walk or drive from here, at the bottom of the street.   Craigslist ad link with pictures of apartment and rooms:  http://westernmass.craigslist.org/sub/5721959551.html (posted 8/22/16)
