Sunny, Quiet, Furnished Studio For School-year Rental
This sunny, fully-furnished and self-contained, non-smoking studio has skylights, french doors, original art on the walls, two decks, and great views, yet offers easy access to local schools (UMass, Amherst College, Smith College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Greenfield Community College, and Route 21. 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!

This high-end, beautifully-appointed studio is available through the end of May 2019.

Has oak floors, and an open plan that includes a kitchen, dining area, office space, and bedroom area with queen-size bed. At just under 400 square feet, it's easy to clean and maintain, yet has space for all the important things (eat, sleep, shower, work on the computer, dance...)

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.

This is ideal for a quiet, non-smoking working person, grad student, or faculty member looking for a peaceful, homey oasis in a hectic schedule. It is an idyllic place to live.

Please note, there is no smoking of anything by anyone anywhere on the property. If you are a smoker, please pass this by.

Pictures available on request

LLani - Sat, Sep 23, 2017, 7:24 P
Looking For Housing Montague November 1st.
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
Thanks!

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.

If interested, call me on 413 454-4513.

Seeking Housing For Two Near Montague Center
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!

Elise and Fox

House Apt- $1150
My husband and I are looking for a small house/cottage or 2 br apt/duplex to rent max $1150.

We have an awesome 1 year old daughter and two mediums sized dogs- a 6 yr old lab and a 7 yr old Australian shepherd. Dogs are up to date on vacs., spayed and currently licensed; they have never destroyed property, but we would pay an extra pet deposit alongside the security if that would ease anyone's mind. In our day dreams, we hope to find a lead compliant home with a private yard or located in a rural setting with access to hiking trails. We are quiet and respectful folks with a mind set more of home owners than renters.

We work in Montague and want to stay within a 20 min. drive, so anywhere in the surrounding towns. Gill, Erving, Colrain, Leyden, Leverett, Greenfield, Bernardston, Northfield. We have rented in Colrain and Leyden before and know how to use a wood stove- very experienced with hill town winters. Used to doing our own lawn care and snow removal.

We can provide excellent rental, vet/pet, personal and work references.
Please let me, Sarah, know if you have a potential rental. Thank you for your time.

Hi all,

A young friend of mine who grew up in Greenfield just graduated from Smith and is looking for a place to live in Franklin county while she spends a year working before going to grad school. She is a smart, conscientious woman who would make a terrific trouble-free tenant and neighbor -- a good addition to the town. :)
If you have any leads, I'd appreciate hearing about them!

House Share up on Chestnut Hill - $625 (inc. utilities)
Share a gorgeous house surrounded by gorgeous land up on Chestnut Hill along the Montague-Leverett Line.

More information, and photos, can be found at http://westernmass.c.../roo/3968629335.html


Cost:

- $625 month-to-month (includes heat, hot water + electric). This number could go down or up depending on how much propane we use.

- Starting Sept 1 or later

Optional shared 4G internet (or on your own via your own plan)
Optional shared landline phone (~$25/month).

Due Up Front:

- First + Last Month's Rent ($1250)
- 2 housing references
- Proof of renter's insurance policy that includes at least $100K liability coverage
(as an aside, if you don't have it, you should get it-- it's extremely cheap [~$150/year], protects your butt and stuff in case of an emergency, and commonly gets you a discount on car insurance when bundled with it).

The Location:

House is on 4 acres of fields and in midst of thousands of acres of forest with miles of hiking trails out back door. M&M and Robert Frost trails are within walking distance through woods.

-5 minutes to The Bookmill or Leverett Coop or Lake Wyola
-20 minutes to Amherst or Greenfield
-30 minutes to `Hamp
-45 minutes to Brattleboro or Keene

What's in it for you:

-The master bedroom (12' x 13') + goodly amount of closet space
-Basement storage
-On site Washer + Dryer
-Shared huge living area + awesome kitchen
-Shared Yoga / meditaton / retreat room
-An enclosed front porch
-A deck with a sunset view
-Solar hot water May-October = FREE long hot showers
-4 acres of fields with mown paths to ramble in
-1000's of acres of forest right with trails right out the back door.
-Lots of lovely wildlife (birds, coyotes, deer, porcupines, occasional bear)
-Fire pit in summer (fire weather dependent)
-A woodstove to snuggle up to in the winter. Main heat is forced hot air by super-efficient -propane furnace.
-Beautiful flower beds to work with if that's your thing
-Possibility for raised garden beds w/ lots of fencing (note aforementioned deer)
-Seriously, have you looked at the photos? This place is gorgeous.

About the living situation / the space:

-LGTBQ ally / safe space. Green lifestyle.

-Adult, Clean / orderly (but not Martha Stewart), calm, respectful, mature, and FUN, atmosphere. Dedication to great communication and magnanimous (harmonious, even) cooperative-style living.

-NVC friendly, but squirt guns will get pulled if communication devolves to this: http://www.funnyordi...0040c4/i-m-triggered

-If you're into composting, recycling, energy conservation, being stoked there is a special yoga / meditation / retreat room, and general enjoyment of nature (there's a lot of it here) and somewhat-rural living, you would be very happy here.

-Copious artificial scents (cologne/perfume, heavily scented candles / cleaners / detergent, lots of bleach, etc. . .) and big TV's / entertainment centers (TV in your room = OK) and smoking aren't a great fit.

-Occasionally there are friends over for dinner or small gatherings with good food and musical instruments.

-I take a deeply respectful, less-a-renter, more-a-steward, approach towards living in and sharing this amazing home, and hope you would too.

-Shared light outdoor upkeep ( lawn mowing, snow shoveling, and wood schlepping) and general self-sufficient house-savvy (i.e., what to do if power goes out / pipes freeze, etc...) are part of living up here and keeps the rent down.

About your potential housemate:

I'm a 35 year old fabulous guy with over a decade of shared living experience. That does not mean I wish to create a CoOp or intentional community-- It just means I have good housemate skills, and you should too. I have a career as a professional scientist down at U-Mass and a great big community all over the Valley. Generally clean cut with crunchy Buddhist middle. Folksy (fiddle and banjo get played, sauerkraut gets made, etc...). Gentle radical social and environmental justice bent. I look at my potential housemates as potential friends, because more often than not that's what ends up happening anyway.

Caveats / quirks to living here:

- There's no high-speed internet up here. However, you can get DSL-ish speed via a 4G hotspot if that's your thing. Good for everything except streaming NetFlix.

- Cellphone reception is decent but complicated: House has a signal booster for 2G / 3G. This makes internet possible.

- You *will* need snow tires in the winter and a reliable car. The road is hilly and we're higher up.

**Contact me via the Craigslist link above if you're interested!

FOR SALE: Two-family home on lovely lot, with Bookmill across the street
Had to relocate due to job change, so my Montague Center property is for sale. Offering 2% of the sale price to the person who finds a buyer or 2% discount to buyers without a referral. Out of respect for my tenants, pre-qualified buyers only please to help keep disruptions to a minimum. Thank you for understanding.

Description:

Cute two-story home in Montague Center built around 1905. Apprx. 2680sf with large wrap-around porch and fenced front yard on apprx. 2/3 acre. Lovely location with plenty of garden space, with the Bookmill located across the street (www.montaguebookmill.com).

Some pictures can be found here: http://westernmass.c.../reo/3813114875.html

Currently set up as a 2-unit rental. Continue renting both sides, convert back to a single family someday, or live on one side and rent out the other. Both sides are currently rented and have short-term leases. Easy area to rent (our current tenants are wonderful). NOTE: The rent has not been adjusted in over 5 years, so if one so chooses, there is more income potential there as rent includes heat and water.
The two-car garage also offers potential expansion opportunity. Very nice lot with grapevines, blueberry bushes, and mature trees.

--Front unit currently rents for $1200 with 2 bathrooms, LR, DR (or bedroom), kitchen, and 2 bedrooms upstairs and large storage area upstairs.

--Back unit rents for $950 with LR, bathroom, basement, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms upstairs.

--Two-car garage with extra storage area in back for tools and the like (lots of open space in the attic, too, if you ever want to turn it into a workshop, office, etc.)

--Mature coniferous and deciduous trees in the yard, gather (LARGE!) grapes from the front arbor or blueberries from the backyard, neighbor's chickens like to come visit, live in a country setting yet within a bucolic, peaceful town that uniquely offers a variety of amenities (dance at the Grange; shop, eat, or listen to live music at the Bookmill across the street; take an easy walk to the post office or cute grocery store, etc.). You can even hear the river from the bedroom window!

--Wood floors throughout and LOTS of windows.

-Heat: oil (radiators)

-Slate roof

-Large front porch (I used to love listening and watching the rain outside while sitting on the porch weaving on my loom or reading a book :) -Wood floors throughout

--Taxes apprx. $3800

Additional info:

I envisioned exposing all of the original clapboard siding on the house and painting it an olive color with contrasting maroon trim, clearing a few trees from the ample back yard to set up a sunny picnic area and garden, planting espaliers and various fruit trees along the fence, having a few small animals, etc.

In the summer, as I tended to my flower gardens, I enjoyed hearing the live music coming from the Bookmill. As autumn rolled in, walking over to the Bookmill to grab a coffee on a crisp morning and relaxing in a cozy nook there overlooking the river made for some very fond memories.

The conservation area is an easy walk through the back yard. The conservation area offers a tranquil spot for swimming, country walks, and cross-country skiing (dog's are welcome, too)!

The property is in a gorgeous location, is solid and has a wonderful yard. Interior does need some cosmetic work if you want it to look immaculate or want to convert it to a single family (siding doesn't all match, ceiling needs some patching in spots from an old leak that had been fixed after a windstorm knocked some slates off (new slates and flashing were installed), some furniture scraped the walls as tenants moved in and out, etc. Very doable though, just wish I lived closer.

Thank you for your time. Asking $289,000 or best reasonable offer.

Looking for alternative minded house (Montague MA )
Housing needed VERY SOON.
I am a 33 year old female looking for housing in or near Montague Center on April 1st.
I am willing to pay $300-550.

-Respectful, friendly, alternative minded house-mates who recycle,compost, conserve energy, eat good healthy food, use the clothesline.
-A decent sized kitchen. I am vegetarian but don't mind meat in the
house. I have a chest freezer that I like to stock up for the winter.
-I don't watch TV and would hope it would not dominate the common space.
-A house with a wood stove and some charm both inside and out that feels
inviting.
-Internet access
-Garden beds to grow lots of food.

To me home is a place to come back to at the end of a long busy day where I can relax and feel comfortable, cook and unwind. While we all
come and go as we please, I would not want to live with someone who is never actually home. I am pretty neat and responsible with paying my
bills, doing my chores and not eating someone else's food. I appreciate others who do the same with room for regular communication.

Does it sound like we might be a fit? Let's talk

Cute antique 2-unit home across from the Bookmill
I'm sure it's a very nice home, but if the yearly rental is $25,800, the asking price of $299,000 seems very high. Normally the maximum people expect to pay for a rental property is 10 years' rent and most properties on the market these days can be had for much less than that.

Cute antique 2-unit home across from the Bookmill
Hello,

I am wrestling with the idea of selling my multi-family home in Montague Center. I love this property but plans have changed over the years. I'm still not 100% sure whether I'll sell quite yet, but am listing to see if there is any interest and will go from there. It basically depends on how my job situation pans out within the next month.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cute antique 2-story home currently set up as a 2-unit rental in a great location in gorgeous Montague Center. Continue renting both sides, convert back to a single family, or live on one side and rent the other.

Built around 1905, it is located diagonally across the street from the Bookmill (www.montaguebookmill.com) and is a super easy walk to the conservation area through the back yard. In the summer, as I tended the yard when I used to live there, I enjoyed hearing the live music coming from the Bookmill :)

Fenced front yard on about 2/3 acre of land. Two-story, 2-car garage with extra storage area in back for tools and the like (would make a nice additional rental or 'mother-in-law' unit, workshop, etc.)

Wood floors throughout and lots of windows. Mature coniferous and deciduous trees in the yard, gather (large!) grapes from the front arbor or blueberries from the backyard, and live in a country setting yet within a bucolic, peaceful town that uniquely offers a variety of amenities (dance at the Grange; shop, eat, or listen to live music at the Bookmill across the street; take an easy walk to the post office or small grocery store, etc.). You can even hear the river from the property. :)

I envisioned exposing all of the original clapboard siding on the house and painting it an olive color with contrasting trim, clearing a few trees from the ample back yard to set up a picnic area and garden, planting espaliers and various fruit trees by the fence, having a few small animals, etc. but my plans have changed over the years and I may not be moving back to the area.

Additional info:

1) Front unit currently rents for $1200 and is apprx. 1400 sf with 2 bathrooms, LR, DR (or bedroom), kitchen, and 2 bedrooms and large storage area upstairs.

2) Back unit rents for $950 and is apprx. 900 sf. with LR, bathroom, basement, kitchen, and 2 bedrooms.

-Heat: oil (radiators)
-Slate roof
-Large front porch (I used to love listening and watching the rain outside while sitting on the porch weaving on my loom or reading a book :)
-Wood floors through

$299.000 Please email me for more pictures. Thanks! :) (kitkatt_1 at yahoo dot com)

Quiet older couple seeking house or apt, pref wood heat but options ok. Two well behaved cats. Never late on rent. Live in MontagueCenter and this apt will soon be available.
Lived here two years, seeking house or larger place. Range anywhere from Greenfield to belchertown, like wendell and levrett too. Quiet and peaceful is our lifestyle. Rent is always our first priority and we have the refrences and documentation upon request. Small garage or wood shop/shed would be wonderful. Older male does carpentry/plunbing, read: if it breaks I fix it, not call the landlord. We are just plain local folks.With a happy, peaceful disposition. email me at millcreek_arts@hotmail.com

Room for rent in our Montague Center Home
We are two professional females in our early 30's looking to add a new housemate to our 3 bedroom home in Montague Center. The available room has a bedroom and office space. There are two full baths in the home, a washer and dryer, wood stove, large backyard, garden space, and some nice 1847 charm. We are eco-minded, non smokers, who compost, recycle, and try to live as green as possible. We prefer pot lucks and game nights over parties and are looking for someone who would fit in with that mind frame as well. We have one very friendly female fixed indoor cat and would be open to another. Rent is $400 per person a month plus utilities. We currently do not have television (though we do have a TV for movies). We are also looking for someone who would be interested in participating in creating some community here with shared chores, occasional house meetings, and occasional shared meals. Drop me an email and I can send you some pictures of the place and we could set up a meeting time. Jan 1 move- in and we have a month to month lease.

2-bedroom house available in Montague Center
Located on Taylor Hill, this unfurnished, two-bedroom home is cool and shady in summer, warm and sunny in winter, and wonderfully quiet.

It is one of two detached and very private units on an acre of country land with beautiful views of the surrounding hills, woods, and fields (the second unit is a studio over the garage). Features wide-board pine floors, a sunny (newly refinished) deck, huge closets in the bedrooms, and a spacious kitchen with pantry and appliances (refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher), as well as a washing machine and dryer in the basement.

Heating is electric and passive solar, with a bricked wood-stove hook-up in the living room. Has a gas range, gas-heated hot water, and clean, drinkable well water from the taps.

Nearby are hiking and cross-country skiing trails, streams for fishing, rivers for boating, and low-traffic biking roads. Within walking distance of popular local cafe and hangout, Montague Bookmill (www.montaguebookmill.com)

A well-behaved cat that likes the occasional mouse is welcome.

The house comes with a garage space AND a garage-door opener (nice on those snowy days).

Located 15 to 20 minutes from Route 91 or Route 2, UMass, Amherst College, and Old Deerfield, as well as schools such as Northfield Mount Herman. Thirty minutes from Smith College and Northampton, as well as Hampshire College.

Ideal for quiet, non-smokers looking for a peaceful, homey oasis in a hectic schedule.

$1200/mo plus utilities; first/last/security. Available now through the end of July or August, 2013, with an option to renew.

Looking for short term apt rental
I have some friends, a couple, who are between houses. They have sold their house and are waiting to get into their new house. There have been delays that may continue another 2 - 4 weeks. They are tired of camping at B&B's and would like a home with a kitchen to land in for a short duration. All their stuff is piled in boxes so they would need a furnished place starting immediately through about mid October. I am not sure of the end date. That would need to be negotiated with them. An efficiency apartment would be fine. Something simple and comfortable would be great.

If you have, or know of a possible lead please contact me

Housemates for Montague Center Apartment
I'm urgently seeking two housemates for the unusual, very nice 4-bedroom (plus small guest room), 1/5-bath 2nd floor apartment in which I've resided for 25 years in downtown Montague Center.

Rent per room will be @$415/month; utilities including wireless internet are extra. The bedrooms are optionally furnished.

The household has historically been multi-generational, semi-cooperative, smoke-free, drama-free, and friendly to fiddle music (I teach and practice and host a weekly music session).

If interested, or if you know someone who might be, call me at (413) 367-9380 and get my email address from my website: www.davidkaynor.com.

I'll check this corkboard for responses, as well.

David Kaynor
