“Exceptional B&B accommodation value”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

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,

Room Tip: The two rooms advertised on the website look quite good, but the room we had, with its own bath...

Where do I begin? We really enjoyed this place. The innkeepers did everything they could to make our stay as relaxing as possible. The beds were so comfortable we slept like babies. Our party had both rooms in the bed & breakfast. The food was very good with a nice variety each day (fruit salad, breads, bacon/sausage, eggs, potatoes, that sort of thing). The place from top to bottom was as clean as could be. This is really a well taken care of bed and breakfast where the innkeepers care about everything, especially you.

I wanted to recommend this place because it was such a good deal ($115 for 1 night, 3 guests), and the couple who own it seem like honest, nice folks. It was a pretty stress free stay, but with problems. First, when making the reservation I was open about being 3 people, one a teen well over 6'3", who would need to share accommodations. I was sorry to find the very ordinary, but large room we stayed in to be badly appointed and uncomfortable due to an army cot or ancient pullout couch serving as the only bed choices for our tall teen. The master bed was super comfy, the a.c., ceiling fan and tv worked well, and everything was shabby chic, spotlessly clean- like grandma's house. But even I, at only 5'6" couldn't hack the cot or couch. There was tons of room in the room for a decent twin/full bed, but it was taken up by a ridiculous little table and chair set no one will likely ever use. We brainstormed and put the cot mattress on top of the ancient pullout mattress and my son slept with his feet sticking out, and he was comfortable enough. When we checked in at dinnertime, our hosts made it very clear they wanted us down at breakfast "the earlier the better". But with a 10 a.m. appointment only 3 minutes away at the college, that was not our plan. Why run a B&B if you don't want to be there for breakfast? We went down at 9, the husband ignored us for 5 minutes while we awkwardly waited at the table. The muffins were stale, the yogurt and fruit was slimy overripe bananas with sliced almonds that was warm and horrid, and when he finally showed up with french toast, it had more weird almonds scattered all over it and my husband said it smacked of being warmed over. Not a good meal. Cereal would have been much more appreciated. So there it is in a nutshell. I guess you get what you pay for. Otherwise, the room was very quiet and convenient to the college. But I don't give it a rave.

Room Tip: Ask very specific questions about the size and age of the beds.

Lovely house, and the room was lovely. Really convenient location, walking distance into town. It was great having some DVD's on the landing to watch. Breakfast was gorgeous!

We stayed at Horace Kellogg's when travelling around New England. The hosts were very helpful, warm and friendly people. We felt absolutely comfortable there, just as if it was our own house. We'd really like to come back some time and be pampered once again!

Between the Amherst Country Club and Amherst College, a good stretch of the legs to downtown Amherst. Old house on Rt. 116. Very nice place. The owners are really nice people. If you are in to classic cars, you are in for a treat! Rooms are spacious. Has shared bath, but only two rooms, so it may not really matter. The rooms face Rt. 116, which has a moderate amount of traffic. If you choose to have the windows open, you will hear some traffic. If you choose to keep them shut, you won't hear much -- especially if you use the air conditioner. Breakfasts may not be the best we've had at a B&B but certainly a couple of notches about what we would make at home. This is a really nice place to stay in the Amherst area.

We chose this location to break up our journey from Mystic to Vermont, as it's about half way.

This was a good choice for a place to stay. Amherst was a nice surprise. It's a college town with a friendly feel. It's a little bit of a walk to the centre of Amherst from this B&B, you'll need a car ideally. Our hosts were great and the room was beautiflly decorated.

We had a great sleep in a very comfy bed. A 'Pack & Play' was provided for our baby daughter with no bother. We had a lovely home cooked breakfast the next day, with extra attention given to our baby. It's a refreshing change to stay at a B&B where babies are more than welcome!

The location is next to a main road. Thankfully the road is quieter at night, so it's not too bad.. The complimentary Wireless Internet was appreciated. Highly recommended.
