Welcome to the Crossroads of New England, where distinct neighborhoods and Eastern European history thrive. Chicopee is located on the Connecticut River in Hampden County, and with a population around 55,000, it’s the second largest city in the western part of the state. Easy access to Boston, New York City, or Washington, D.C. will remind you that you really are living at a crossroads, but hey, that’s no problem with an awesome rental. Let’s find you one!
The City of Chicopee was originally four villages, a geographic divide that has created distinct neighborhoods: Willimansett, Fairview, Chicopee Center, Aldenville, Chicopee Falls, or Burnett Road, any of which will be the perfect place to unpack your boxes.
There is a wide range of available apartments for rent, from newer units located in the outer neighborhoods to historically renovated and centrally located lofts. The price of rent will not vary drastically from one neighborhood to the next (average rent around $900) with the exception of three neighborhood/housing combinations:
Willimansett, located on the outer edge of the city limits, has more a suburban feel and cheap apartments. Rent a two bedroom townhouse close to highway access and green space or a sunny two bedroom in a brownstone building located in the denser area of Willimansett, either for around $700-$850.
The centrally situated apartments for rent in the Chicopee Center neighborhood, located on the Chicopee River, are old but well kept. Beautifully renovated lofts in historic factories can cost well over $1,000 per month.
The Burnett Road area can be pricier but as always it can depend on the unit. This area includes Country Club Estates and the city’s country club, so be prepared for newer construction and square footage with views. Burnett Road in addition to Williamanset will be your go-to neighborhoods for pet friendly apartments.

Finding an apartment in Chicopee that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
