I have stayed with Susan & Steve for two year in row while attending a convention at UMASS.
The house is located outside the main hustle of the college town, but is only a 10 minute walk. The owners are wonderful, honest people who know when to leave you alone and when to chat. I usually like to stay alone and relax by myself, so this is definitely a nice thing. Breakfast every morning was different and freshly made. I never left feeling empty.
The Wi-Fi and cable worked just fine and were wonderful to be able to use. The bathroom was shared between the two rooms at the site. It was of substantial size and easy to use, even though everyone staying there was using it at the same time (we managed just fine).
Overall, great place to stay that is relaxing and quiet. Steve & Susan really are the bee's knees when it comes to B&B owners.
