I’m an Amherst College employee looking for two housemates to share my beautiful Victorian house in Holyoke in the Oakdale/tree streets area. The rent for the available rooms is $500 per month inclusive of utilities. The bedrooms are not furnished. The September 1st move in date is negotiable for one of the rooms. There are stairs to get into the house and up to the bedrooms/bathroom. The bedroom has carpet and pets have lived in the house. Pets are negotiable. The first floor is all wood and has lots of beautiful details. There is a great pantry. There's a washer and dryer in the basement. The common spaces are furnished for the most part, but we could talk about furniture you might want to bring, and there is some storage space. There are 3 porches! There is a guest bedroom with a futon that serves as an additional shared living space and space for guests. There is generally plenty of on street parking, and parking in the driveway is possible with some communication with housemates. I am fairly quiet but do enjoy social time and like to have people over sometimes, but I often socialize out of the house and come home to relax. I'm happy with us all doing our own thing, and also happy to hang out sometimes and chat or play boardgames and such. I'm looking for housemates who are respectful, tidy, and queer friendly. I value sustainability and try to make careful use of resources. I would value housemates who would do the same. I don't use a lot of harsh chemicals, but the house is not a scent-free space. I enjoy bike riding, shape note singing, and play violin (not well, sorry!) on occasion. If this sounds good to you, please tell me more about yourself! You can find photos on my Craigslist ad. I can be reached at lauracclampitt@gmail.com or through the Craigslist email. https://westernmass.craigslist.org/roo/6214818744.html (posted 7/12/17)

 The Perfect Spot – available in November 2017 -- Quiet dead end street, in-town location. Walk to UMASS/Amherst College/downtown. The recently renovated 1840s farmhouse is loaded with natural light, gourmet kitchen, solar panels, Wi-Fi, porch and garden, fire pit with chairs and quiet spaces. The space The renovated farm house is light and airy. The available room is a small room, on the first floor, off of the kitchen with a queen size bed, drawers, a dresser, closet and next to a shared bath with a lovely shower and an outdoor shower, in warm months. The outdoor shower has a view of a meadow or the stars at night. This is the only bedroom on the first floor so it feels very private at night, even with shared bath. Washer and dryer and bath tub on second floor. The room has its own heat/cooling control.  This is an old home. And while it is fully renovated, it is dusty. I also have three cats so if you are allergic to cats or older homes, this is not the place for you. It will never be as clean as a new house. It has finished and painted wooden floors.  Parking spot available. Guest access The potential renter can enjoy kitchen, yard, porches, garden, TV room, bathtub, outdoor shower (except when removed in winter), washer and dryer, Wi-Fi and bicycles (2) upon request. I have Adirondack chairs in the garden that can be enjoyed for reading and relaxation. .  Interaction  I work full-time, in my home for a health care environmental stewardship not for profit organization.  I am on my computer and on the phone on the first floor. I am also a reiki practitioner and treat people in an upstairs room as a side interest and volunteer with hospice.  I have two children – both in college – one has an apartment in South Hadley and one is at Connecticut College and has a room in the home when she is on break.   Other things to note I am a quiet early to bed, early to rise person. If you are loud, allergic to cats or older homes, this is not the place for you.   I seek someone who is quiet, with little expectations for interaction and also early to bed, early to rise – or someone who doesn’t mind that I am and who is quiet at night.  Because the kitchen is outside of the room for rent, I want to make sure that breakfast preparation at an early hour is not a disturbance. I travel for work and for life and seek someone who can cover some activities when I am not here i.e. mowing lawn, putting out trash for pick up and feed the cats.  We can discuss those particulars and the rent --  Rent (negotiable) includes all utilities, Wi-Fi etc.. References required to make sure it’s the right fit. You can reach me at jannyhoward11@gmail.com The room is available November 6, 2017. (posted 6/21/17)

I am looking for a housemate to share my beautiful Victorian house in Holyoke in the Oakdale/tree streets area. The rent for the available room is $475 per month inclusive of utilities. There are stairs to get into the house and up to the bedrooms/bathroom. There is currently one other housemate living here in addition to me. I work at Amherst, and she is a student at Smith School for Social Work. The bedroom has carpet and pets have lived in the house (though we would prefer not to live with pets at this time). The first floor is all wood and has lots of beautiful details. There is a great pantry. There's a washer and dryer in the basement. The common spaces are furnished for the most part, but we could talk about furniture you might want to bring, and there is some storage space. There are 3 porches! There is a guest bedroom with a futon that serves as an additional living space and space for guests. I am fairly quiet but do enjoy social time and like to have people over sometimes, but I often socialize out of the house and come home to relax. I'm looking for housemates who are respectful, tidy, and queer friendly. I value sustainability. I enjoy bike riding, shape note singing, and play violin (not well, sorry!) on occasion. There is generally plenty of on street parking, and parking in the driveway is possible with some communication with housemates. For more information, please see my listing on craigslist: https://westernmass.craigslist.org/roo/6114408674.html. If interested, you can reply to me at lauracclampitt@gmail.com or through the craigslist posting. (posted 5/10/17)
