“What a Treat!”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

Lovely rooms, fabulous breakfast, and great company at the community breakfast table -- this bed and breakfast style inn is an absolute delight! We've stayed there many times and always look forward to going back!

Room Tip: The suites are really lovely. The Kelleher room has a jacuzzi-type bath. The rooms in the main part...

Spent two nights. Room was beautiful and clean. Had that charming New England feel. The location was perfect. The owners were gracious. The breakfast was excellent. We plan to go back. There is no reason to stay in a local hotel when you can stay here.

Room Tip: Our room - which is the largest - was delightful. I believe it was originally built in 1740 as a gr...

This place is so great! Wonderful rooms with good mattresses, very spacious and elegantly appointed, but cozy too, with fires in the stove. The breakfasts are amazing! Marie makes about ten kinds of jams, which she even picks the wild berries for. They are very generous too. The winter sale we just took advantage of cannot be beat on this planet. Even a crummy little cheap motel is more than this beautiful place during their winter sale. We spent seven nights there altogether, in three separate short spurts, so three different rooms. We could not wait to get back for the final one. We will miss this place.

A wonderful bed and breakfast. Clean, lovely and the breakfast is worth the stay alone. It's a great location for U Mass, Amherst or Hampshire. Can't imagine why anyone would stay in a hotel in the area when they could stay here.

We stayed here two nights to attend a squash tournament at Amherst College. The rooms are very spacious with sitting areas and the rooms are decorated beautifully. The breakfast was delicious. Marie's homemade baked goods were outstanding. Marie and Dan were very friendly and the hard work and the care they put into refurbishing this historic home is clearly evident. We recommend it highly.

The room was charming and spotless, the breakfasts were filled with homemade items (including bacon produced down the road) and the location was right on the #31 bus to UMASS and Amherst College. We would love to stay here again!

The home made breakfast was amazing, Penny made the most delicious blueberry Muffins. The room was out of this world. All of the staff was very welcoming and friendly. Can't wait to return and bring my family!
Absolutely love it! Best B&B ever.
