This is a unique opportunity to 'live' in downtown Northampton for your stay in a gorgeous minimalist, clean, comfortable apartment with everything you need at your fingertips. The furniture is hand made and curated by Sticks & Bricks designer, Liz Karney, who's shop is downstairs. Many one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture are for sale through the shop as well as the opportunity for custom work.
Guests have access to the entire second floor apartment plus a shared backyard courtyard. Guests also get a free parking spot in the driveway. Occasionally, there will be short pick-ups or drop-offs of large furniture pieces to the shop downstairs, but no driveway use will be long term.
Liz is downstairs in the shop, Sticks & Bricks on most days for questions/inquiries about furnishings. Your hosts, Robyn and Adam are usually in town either at our cafe, The Roost which is just next door, or at either one of our homes nearby. As restaurant owners, we are both easily reachable by text or phone at any time of the day or night.
For your convenience, there is a bluetooth speaker in the kitchen. To operate, press and hold the power button (top left) until you hear the tone that signals powering on. To pair with your device, press and hold the bluetooth button (just to the right of the power button) till you hear the pairing tone. Look in the bluetooth settings for your device for a device called Braven. When you select that, you should be set up to play music through the speaker. But your source device will need to stay within about 15 feet of the speaker.
TV/Cable: There is one remote to control the television and the cable. All basic and extended channels are available, including HBO. If you press the Xfinity button in the center of the remote, you can scroll over to Apps where you’ll find Netflix. Feel free to log onto your Netflix account during your stay.
We love living in downtown Northampton. We moved here in 2007 and have fallen in love with the walk-ability and scale of this city. My partner teaches Sociology at U Mass and we joined forces with the amazing team of Adam Dunetz & Liz Karney to open The Roost, a cafe/restaurant right here in Northampton-- just a few doors down from our rental properties.
