I am looking to rent a single family house or a carriage house in a very quiet, peaceful area where I can live alone. I am a mature, responsible woman, and have perfect credit and excellent references.
Two bedroom, 1.5 bath condo in duplex on country road about a mile from center of town, 15 minutes to Amherst, 15 minutes to Greenfield. Lots of garden space, private setting, freshly painted, $1,200/mo., available now.
Sharing this outreach from a dear friend currently living and teaching in Amherst:
Nature and community-minded couple, early childhood teacher and conservationist, looking to purchase home in Montague or surrounding area. Looking for a small or medium-sized house on a few acres with small-scale homesteading potential. But also open to a range of possibilities. Sunny location, or ability to create enough sun for a garden, and access to woods is important to us. We look forward to hearing from you if you know of anything coming up for sale in your community. Text or call Jean at 413-265-3136.
We love Montague Center and the surrounding landscape and would love to set down permanent roots with our family. Looking for a minimum 5+ acre home to buy on a quiet street. Any offers or leads that haven't already been posted on Zillow would be greatly appreciated.
Sunny, Quiet, Furnished Studio For School-year Rental

It is also less than a mile from the Montague Bookmill (www.montaguebookmill.com).
It is one of two unattached and very private units on an acre of country land. With decks on both the east and west sides, it's a nature-lover's (or bird-watcher's) paradise!

There are lots of extras here -- very pleasantly furnished, there's also clean, clear well water from the taps, and a garage space (for parking only, not storage) with a garage door opener (meaning you won't have to get out in the rain and snow), and if needed a window air conditioning unit. Plus, there's on-site access to a washer and dryer.
Nearby are hiking and cross-country ski trails, streams for fishing, river for boating, and low-traffic biking roads.
Travel times: 15 to 20 minutes from Route 91 or Route 2, UMass, Greenfield, Deerfield, and other area schools; closer to 30 minutes from Amherst and Smith Colleges, and Northampton.
Rent includes some utilities (gas for cooking, lawn care, and wifi); you pay for your electric use (heat & hot water) and trash stickers. Snow removal is shared with the people living in the house; I provide a snow blower (serviced annually) for your use.

I am looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment or house in/near Montague Center for rent starting July, Aug or September, 2018. I am an older professional seeking a quiet and comfortable place to live. Would love it to be energy efficient and have wood floors and garden space, but not essential.
Looking for Housing Fall 2017
My fiancé and I are looking for a new place to live. The moving date is November 1st. We are working professionals in our late thirties, wanting a temporary home. We are hoping to remain in the Montague Leverett area. We would like to find a place to rent for at least a year before we consider buying our own house.
Marc-Andre is French Canadian recently immigrated to the USA and LLani grew up in the area. We are both carpenters and outdoor adventure enthusiasts. We love to grow food gardens as well as hike ski swim bike ice skate etc . LLani co-owns a permaculture gardening business out of Montague, and have lots of friends and community close by.
We are alternative minded folk who don’t own too many possessions. We are respectful and friendly. We believe in recycling, composting, energy conservation, eating good healthy food and being mindful or our impact on the planet.
We would love a little place to call home for the next year. We are looking for a small space such as a studio or garage or one bedroom apartment. We would love a space that is mold free, in a quiet location, fairly inexpensive, and has access to nature.
Internet access, a wood stove, and laundry would be a great bonus, though not necessary.
At other rentals, we have used garden space. It would also be a bonus, but not necessary as we have found space at our friends house for this year.
Have anything that meets our criteria? Please contact us
At least one bedroom on the first floor (or a room that could serve as a bedroom), full bath on 1st floor, and preferably laundry on 1st floor. Need 3 bedrooms total and at least 1.5 bath or 1.75 bath. Garage optional. Not on busy road.
School-year, Fully Furnished, Non-smoking Studio Rental
I am currently spending 9 months outside of the US, so rent out my lovely, light, furnished studio (skylights, french doors, lots of privacy and quiet, just outside of Montague Center) when I'm not here. Looking for someone who wants sabbatical housing or for whatever other reason, a September 2016 through May 2017 rental, who will take care of my space and treat it well.
My studio is over my garage -- there is a nice young couple with 2 children living in the house, which is entirely separate, and not at all intrusive on your privacy.
$1100 includes lawn care, wifi, and gas for cooking -- you pay electric, trash, and any additional utilities needed, as well as share snow removal.
This is an entirely non-smoking situation -- there is no smoking of anything anywhere on the property.
My wife and I are Montague Center residents looking for a first floor rental for my mother who wishes to join us & grandchildren & great grandchildren in this area. Ready to sign one year lease on an attractive, comfortable, well maintained situation. 2 bedroom or 1 bedroom with extra space, some open areas, reasonable rent and utilities. Contact us with details/questions.
My partner and I are looking for a house or apartment to rent for September 1. I would prefer to stay in or near Montague Center, but would also be open to the right place some distance south of here, say in Leverett, Sunderland, or even Amherst. (Not wanting to move much north of the Montague Center/Lake Pleasant area.) We are looking for a space with 2+ bedrooms, an opportunity to garden, and an openness to a dog.
I am 28 and work as a mentor in kids' nature programs. I am going back to school at Hampshire College this fall to study ecology and storytelling. My partner is 33 and sort of a jack of all trades. He currently works for UMass dining services but is trying to get back into tech/computer work. We are both passionate about gardening, permaculture and the outdoors in general. We live a quiet, laid-back lifestyle, and cherish community connections. We both currently live in Montague Center, but separately, and are looking to move in together. (We are in a long-term relationship and have lived together in the past.) We can provide good references if you would like.
Please contact me if you have a space for rent, or know of anything that might be a good fit. Thank you!
