I stayed in the Loft, quaint and cozy -- the attic adapted. Small unique windows in two of the rooms afforded both east and west views from the suite: sunset and sunrise. I enjoyed them both, though there was no need for an alarm -- the sunrise woke me. The bed induced instant sleep and the eggs the next morning,...

It feels like you are in an old part of Europe at Amherst Inn. Quiet, pleasant and friendly --its an ideal place to relax and enjoy a general serenity. I stayed in the Lion's den which was lovely. Ann, the proprietress was warm and accommodating. I did not feel the need for a TV or music as I loved being...

I was put up here by one of the regions many universities. The place is well located (in the center of town) but not a great place to stay for the business traveler. No television or phone in the room, hard to find plugs, poor lighting, and the smallest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel in the states....

When my son, and I arrived very late around 11:00 there was someone there to let us in. Our room was a little cold, but the owner came over to fix the heater. I had the Queen bed, and my son had the twin bed. Both beds were very comfy, and we both fell right to sleep. I might of...

My husband and I spent a night in the Persian room while we were in town for a wedding. It was the most delightful stay! The room was absolutely beautiful and everything was hand stenciled. We are vegans and they prepared the most wonderful breakfast for us! We hope to visit again very soon.

Where to begin with this majestic, Victorian beauty located steps from the bustle of a sweet New England college town with shops, restaurants and upscale drinking establishments. The Inn is wonderfully maintained with era correct décor and an onsite staff member totally dedicated to the comfort of the guests. The rooms are cozy with fine linens and furnishings and gas...

We stayed here during off-season, so it was very quiet. The rooms are beautiful and quaint. Just a couple of blocks from the very center of town. The service was superior. The only downside was that some of the breakfast items were expired - which apparently happens more often when they're not busy. Quite enjoyed our stay.

We just returned from our trip to Amherst and we stayed four nights at the Amherst Inn. We had the Napoleon Room. This place is absolutely awesome! Our room was beautiful and the whole place is beautiful. Ann and Pam couldn't have been any more accommodating and lovely. They always seemed to be around to ask how we were doing...

We were travelling with a lot of luggage so wanted to stay on the ground floor, but the stairs up to the ground floor from the lower parking area tested our balance! The house has that historic feel -- like staying in an antique store -- but the modernized bath and kitchen area shows a real sense of investment into...
