My husband and I traveled to Amherst with our 16 year old son to visit colleges in the area. We spend one night at the Black Walnut Inn - chosen after reading reviews here on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. We stayed in 2 adjoining rooms, the Norwattuck Room and the Planter's Room. The beds were comfortable and the rooms filled with interesting historical memorabilia. Breakfast was generous and delicious and our hosts were super-friendly. The B&B is in a great location with plenty of parking. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay when visiting the area.
