Stayed with my aunt for two nights. First time. When we arrived, there was a note on the door for me & we picked up the key from an antique mailbox. No problem. All lights were on in the room, it was also very warm and cozy.
Seemed to be low season, so we got upgraded without a charge. We stayed in Webster room, #7. Mattress didn't work well with my back, but otherwise beds were nice and stock full of pillows. Plenty of towels & blankets for two in that room.
Lovely breakfast in main area of house, there's a large table that's shared by all guests. One morning, table was full, so we just waited in the living room and was served tea and coffee before breakfast. Breakfast was very filling and a nice little highlight to our quiet Amherst weekend.
The people who run the B&B, and those that work there, are super nice. In fact, I had to cancel my first reservation due to snow storms. No charge, called days later, made new, second reservation. Easiest to work through e-mail (rather than phone).
