About The Pomeroy

Classic Meeting Space and Lodgings in Northampton, MA

My new adventure began in the latter part of 2017 when I found this gorgeous belle of a historic house (built in 1868) in eclectic, quirky, intelligent, funny (I could go on and on) Northampton. I still had my home in Colorado to sell, but it was love at first sight … a few months later, on February 27, 2018 to be exact, I closed on the Grande Belle and hurriedly met the movers to unload.

Close to downtown restaurants, shops, courthouse, grocery, The Pomeroy is a wonderful place to stay while conducting business, socializing, or riding the bike trails around New England. Many individuals regularly stay with me to visit their college kids, or come celebrate reunions, weddings, conferences, etc. Several individuals have stayed with me for nearly two weeks at a time while attending training programs downtown; they enjoyed having only a 5-minute walk each morning after sitting on my screened porch drinking coffee and perhaps chatting a bit or studying.

I also host civic and social meetings at The Pomeroy frequently. The dining room with bay window is light and airy; it serves as a pleasant small conference room with a window view of the specimen trees bursting in bloom sequentially all summer long.

So, if you need a charming place for a deposition, mediation, or other type of meeting, do come visit The Pomeroy to see if we would fit your needs. Catering for meetings is available. Out-of-town lawyers, litigants, witnesses could stay at The Pomeroy, making it extremely convenient for attendance at the deposition or meeting.

And, if you would like to have overnight accommodations for or family and friends, check out Penny Lane Junior Suite and Strawberry Fields, each with their attached, private, full baths.

Your Host, Deb

    The top floor of an 1868 Victorian home in the new Pomeroy Terrace National Historic District of Northampton boasts a beautiful, spacious, sunny, 2-bedroom apartment (called a “houseshare” because there is no separate and distinct entrance). Three blocks to Downtown restaurants, shops, music venues galore, etc. Less than a mile to Smith College thru downtown.

Apartment has a full kitchen with large pantry closet, a full bath (tub and shower), a separate living room, plus a large bedroom and another small bedroom/office.

    Beautiful place, attentive host, great location! Deb was welcoming and informative about the area. We’d definitely stay there again!
    Linda - October 2019

    We enjoyed our stay at Deb’s place. It is well-located and an easy walk to downtown. The room was clean and comfortable – especially the bed and smaller daybed (which was great for an afternoon nap). The bathroom was big and clean and the shower had great water pressure. Deb is a great and enthusiastic host who has created a great place for visitors. We will look to return on a future visit to the area.
    Marc - August 2019

    Deb’s place was absolutely perfect for our Pioneer Valley getaway. Northampton is the place to be, and Deb’s place is perfectly located for all that the town has to offer. A quick walk to coffee shops, bars, and restaurants, and an easy drive to anything else you’d want to do. The inn is gorgeous, a historic building with every amenity. Everything we needed was there for us, and Deb was so easy and pleasant to communicate with. Can’t recommend this place highly enough!
    Leah - October 2018

    The Pomeroy Inn is a beautiful Victorian home, very conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood a couple blocks from downtown Northampton. Our hostess, Deb, was welcoming and interesting to talk to. Her dog, Joey, was well-behaved and we enjoyed meeting him. My wife and I would definitely stay again!
    Kevin - October 2018

    Deb’s place has a charm and comfort that is lacking in other places we have rented. The common areas are homey, comfortable, and well-appointed, including a fireplace and screened-in porch.
    Judy - October 2019

    A beautiful, historic home 2 blocks from the center of downtown Northhampton. The room has modern amenities, a very nice bathroom and was clean and well-supplied with extra linens. Deb was very accessible and thoughtful, from coffee in the morning to a text offering umbrellas one day when it was raining. We really appreciated being able to park the car at Deb’s and then walking everywhere for the rest of the weekend.
    Jana - April 2019

    Deb’s place is immaculately clean and just a short, pleasant walk from downtown Northampton’s restaurants and coffee shops. My favorite part was the sound cancelling machine by the very comfortable bed that played beautiful cricket songs through the night. Deb was very helpful in getting me settled and even carried my heavy suitcase from my car up the stairs to my room.
    Suzanne - October 2018

    Deb is an amazing host. She does such a great job of giving you your space and also being around for anything you might need. Deb is very pleasant and did a wonderful job of setting up the space to be comfortable and pleasant. And the location is a quick and easy walk into town.
