Do I even need to chime in with yet another 5 star review for Lynda?? Purple Gables is lovely, conveniently located, tastefully decorated, and yes, the breakfasts are superb. Our family of 4 was very comfortable here, with one kid on the sofa bed and one in the private single room. But the best part is having such a personality-filled and gracious host, who is warm and service-oriented, personable but not intrusive, just a genuinely kind person who wants you to have a wonderful time in Amherst, which we did. Thanks, Lynda!
