There are not enough great things to say about @yupcoffeeroasters, a family-run “hidden gem” cafe/roastery located on the banks of the Mill River in Florence. From its welcoming staff and super-friendly owners to its rich and incredible coffee, we’re certain you’ll immediately feel relaxed and “at home.” Whether you choose to sit inside or out (feel free to bring your pooch!), you’ll admire the special touches they offer, from gorgeous vases of flowers grown by one of the owners to artwork by local artists featured on the walls. (Cute thing we noticed: they even have a microwave they’ve named Mrs. Doubtfire.) So savor this beautiful summer weather over a heavenly cup of coffee, sweet treat, or delicious bagel sandwich & bowl of soup. And make sure you leave with a fresh bag of beans or ground coffee so you can bring a little @yupcoffeeroasters home with you. ☕️ #northamptonmass #cafes #dineout #northamptonma #northamptonlive #shoplocal #shopsmall #coffeeroastery @ YUP Coffee Roasters

No need to leave home to "get away" this summer! #staycation #westernma

Hanging around the house is something we all do, but usually in an unfocused, squished-between-chores-and-obligations sort of way. But when you stay home for vacation, your dwelling can become a sanctuary, free from the day-to-day grind. If you can’t afford to get out of town, treat your home like a...

Our Story

We are one of the closest bed & breakfasts to both Smith College and downtown Northampton. The renovation of our house was featured on HGTV's Restore America program (the video is on the B&B’s website) and we won the Historic Preservation Award from the City of Northampton. We’ve been featured in numerous magazines and newspaper articles.

We love running our B&B and have had people from all over the world stay with us. 50% of our guests are connected to Smith College. Over the years, we’ve had scores and score of parents who’ve stayed with us several times a year, times four years. They’ve become friends.
