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 an friendly overview upon our arrival. The room 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. For an additional fee 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 was our first Air BNB experience and what a treat! Make sure you request Leslie’s precise directions to the house.

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 Organic B&B is 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.

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 opted for the organic breakfast and it was delicious. Would stay here again

Beautiful and peaceful, I could listen to the birds all day; best of the city and country – great location

-Ross, Maine, May 2017

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.

Great stay. Just as described. Beautiful wooded area. And Leslie made a wonderful vegan breakfast. Highly recommended!

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 from Brooklyn, NY; guests, October 2016

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, Oct 2016

Great place to stay if visiting in Ahmerst 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, Oct 2016

Everything was wonderful, top notch.

-Philip, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii; Oct 2016

Leslie is such a great host! She’s welcoming and very informative. I would definitely stay with her again if we visit Amherst again.
