When we first tried booking this B&B, we were informed that it was full, but we shortly thereafter received an offer for another room on the second floor with its own entrance (that does not appear on their website), with bath and all the other amenities. We booked it, but when we arrived, found that it had been let to someone else in error. The guest, apparently a friend of the host, agreed to a swap and we got the room, which turned out to be remarkable for a B&B.
It was very large, with closets and drawer space that would suit an apartment. The kitchen nook had a stocked fridge (the other rooms share one, I understand), a microwave, toaster, sink, and a little table w/chairs. The hosts had to leave before us on our final day, so breakfast was prepared and left for us in the fridge the day before. The newly renovated bathroom was fully stocked. The wifi was weak in the room, but strong downstairs; the TV had full coverage. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The AC was a wall unit, far enough away from the bed not to be distracting.
The B&B is located on a main, but quiet, road, particularly convenient to Amherst and Hampshire colleges,
