I stayed at Leslie Cerier’s Organic Gourmet Getaway with a friend during one of the cooking workshop weekends. The experience was absolutely wonderful. She is such a warm and welcoming host. We enjoyed her beautiful house, every detail is so well thought through. We both think that Leslie should be on TV teaching others how to use green living concepts in your every day life. From her delicious food, to mattresses and pillows to her luscious garden, everything created an atmosphere of relaxation, happiness and joy. I highly recommend Leslie’s Organic Gourmet Getaway!

I enjoyed every moment… from the cozy atmosphere of your home to the wonderful smell of your food ! Everything was simply delicious! And to make it even better I had the opportunity to meet you! Thank you for being a wonderful host! I had an amazing experience! My best wishes to you and your Organic Gourmet Getaway!

Leslie‘s property is beautiful, and just as expected from her description and photos. I stayed in a large bedroom on the second floor with a very comfortable bed and en suite private bathroom. Every window had a scenic view of the trees and/or her stunning flower garden. Leslie is a very welcoming and friendly host. She’s also an excellent cook! She made me a delicious breakfast with fresh, organic local ingredients (including just-picked raspberries!). I was looking for a weekend escape from the city. Leslie’s house in the woods (off a dirt road) was the perfect retreat! I definitely recommend it!

Serene setting, comfortable home and welcoming host – we enjoyed our stay at Leslie’s house and exploring the surrounding area. Her home is wonderful with the interior architecture and artwork with the surrounding grounds adding wonderful views with all the natural gardens. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to cross our life paths with yours, Leslie. Thank-you for a lovely stay and for welcoming us into your beautiful home. Clearly, this a space of care which you have created.
-Maggie and Bill from Chicago, IL
Leslie was a wonderful hostess. Beautiful home and gardens. Spotless accommodations. She made me a delicious breakfast of all organic fruits and locally sourced yogurt. All in all a great experience. I hope to stay with you again in the future.

Setting, the woods, was extraordinarily beautiful, peaceful and quiet. House was lovely. Leslie was very nice, extremely accommodating and flexible. We arrived hours early but that was no problem for her. Gave us an additional room for our daughter in response to our last minute request. Leslie went out of her way to accommodate us.
– Marta Smokler; L A, CA;
This home was both aesthetically lovely and beautifully functional. The setting was pristine, uncluttered, clean, and spiritually uplifting. We were communicated with well prior to our arrival and we were given a complete and friendly overview upon our arrival. The master bedroom suite was beyond our expectations with Leslie’s beautiful art work tastefully adorning the walls and literally infusing the room with life and serenity. The bed was the most comfortable we had ever slept in. We were very tired upon arrival and after an initial friendly orientation we were provided privacy and quiet so we could wind down and settle in early. Leslie had cheerfully agreed to cook us a wholesome, sumptuous breakfast. Because we are on a tight budget, I had initially thought the cost was a bit pricey for a breakfast, but when I later learned that she is not typically a morning person and yet had been willing to accommodate us and after having enjoyed a lovely breakfast in a beautifully serene outdoor setting, we were glad we had splurged. She is a great cook but if we stay there at a future point and want her to cook, we will opt for a meal later in the day! If you need a natural, contemplative, quiet setting that can really serve as a retreat, this is the place! This experience was a treat!

Our overnight stay at Leslie’s beautiful home was just fine. The house, and owner, exude warmth. The bedroom is large and airy, and features a very comfortable bed. The equally substantial bathroom suite, offers the choice of bath or shower. The house is spotlessly clean. Leslie’s commitment to an organic lifestyle sets a tone of intention throughout the property. The setting is wonderfully wooded, peaceful and serene. If you’re looking for a true respite from the toils of urban life while visiting the Pioneer Valley, this is the place for you.

I want to thank you for being such a gracious host. Your home is lovely and, despite a couple of late nights, I really enjoyed the comfort, peace and quiet of being there. Thanks for everything

Leslie’s Gourmet Getaway is in a handcrafted home, filled with nature based stunning art, a most comfortable bed, incredible trails through the woods and windows that drink in the beauty. Her warmth and welcoming ways added to our enjoyment.
– Patty Stephens; Austin, Texas
Leslie was a very welcoming and friendly host. Her place was perfect for us. Very large room with a very comfortable bed. Had every thing we needed. Perfect for a weekend getaway in the woods. We enjoyed the organic breakfast and it was delicious. Would stay here again
– Tom, Stoneham, MA
Beautiful and peaceful, I could listen to the birds all day; best of the city and country – great location
Leslie’s place was perfect for us for a weekend getting way. She was very accommodating of our last minute booking. Her place is cozy and in a gorgeous spot- perfect for hiking nearby trails or tooling around Amherst- which has bookstores, great restaurants and an independent movie theater. Next time hope to sample her cooking. By the way, her nature photos hung throughout the home are beautiful.
-Jen, Sandisfield MA
Great stay. Just as described. Beautiful wooded area. And Leslie made a wonderful vegan breakfast. Highly recommended!
-Julie, Syracuse, NY
We had a lovely night at Leslie’s She has created the perfect Oasis!!! Something Leslie said the night we stayed over has really struck a cord. I have vowed to live life more deliciously each day.
-Julia and Bennie, Brooklyn, NY
What a beautiful place! I loved the location (set in the woods) and the simplicity and grace of the furnishings. Leslie was very warm and easy to communicate with – which was good because we didn’t get to her place until fairly late (about 10 pm). The room is clean and uncluttered, and the bathroom is spacious with plenty of room to put your toiletries. Highly recommended!
– Meredith, Chicago, ILL
Great place to stay if visiting in Amherst, MA area. Leslie was accommodating and on point with directions and places to go. Would definitely stay here again. Wish I had reason to stay longer.
-Carol, Schenectady, NY
Everything was wonderful, top notch.
