Room For Rent Downtown Northampton

I am moving out of my room in a beautiful Victorian house. Preferably, I am looking for a graduate student or a young professional to take over the lease. The house is located very close to the Northampton center and in walking distance to places like Local Burger and Fitzwilly's. The Roost is also only two minutes away. There is a great and direct bus connection to UMass .

Currently, there are three other female housemates who are very nice and who like to keep the common areas clean.
The preferred move-in date would be sometime between January 20th and February 1st, 2016. The rent is $800 per month including all utilities, except for the wifi which is an additional $16.50 per month. This is a great deal given the immaculate condition of the house (which is also lead-free) and its location! If you are interested in the apartment, please respond to this post and I will answer any questions you might have.

Vacation Cottage Rental, Maine Southern Coast
Did you put off booking a summer cottage this summer, and now all you can find are "shabbins" or frou-frou upscale homes far exceeding your budget? You're in luck, because we got off to a late start this summer, too! This is the first posting of the season, so we still have weeks open during the high summer season at our spacious, affordable family-owned/managed 2-bedroom housekeeping cottage in OGUNQUIT, MAINE – only about 2.5 hours from Amherst.
Quiet condo community in a convenient location—walk to restaurants, shops, village, beach, galleries, etc. Jump on the trolley to Perkins Cove for a Barnacle Billy's Rum Punch, a Footbridge Lobster lobster-roll, or a stroll along the scenic Marginal Way coastal path.
Summer rates range from $800 - $950 per week. Reduced rates in shoulder/off-season and for multi-week rentals.
Photos and rental details available upon request.
Our family has rented this cottage since 1978, and guests always rave what a wonderful time they had. Haven't you heard? Ogunquit is the "New Cape"—but for all the BEST reasons!

Hosts: Michele & Lauren
