The location is beautiful and the house is stunning and very unique. We did not get to meet Wayne but he had someone meet us and make sure we were settled in. Communication was great. It is an easy drive to Umass Amherst.

Unexpected multifaceted benefits from staying at Wayne's - stylish house, comprehensive facility, mountain retreat, rock-climbing, MIT intelligence, and most importantly hospitality and attention from host and his family. Cats are great company too. Will return.
