Enjoyed a lovely stay in a very comfortable room with excellent mattress! Jeff and Carol couldn't have been more accomodating and knowledgable about the area and Carol prepared an abundant and delicious breakfast.

We enjoyed our overnight stay here where Carol,Jeff and Cameron share their home, with you, as well as their deep local wisdom and engagement with their community. Its a family feeling with their very personal involvement.You feel as if you are really living here.There are more books and varieties of tea than you can possibly get through, even on a... More

We had a great time hosted by Carol, Jeff, and Cameron. Even though we got in late and had to leave early in the morning, they waited up for us and got up early to make a wonderful breakfast. The rooms are beautifully furnished and well equipped, with very comfortable beds. Very convenient to Amherst and Northampton, with a beautiful... More

Coming to Amherst? Here's where I will always look first to stay. Birdsong B & B hosts Carol and Jeff help you feel right at home and make themselves readily available with just right, thoughtful care. You feel you are part of a warm and friendly family. There's a fireplace and two calm and friendly cats. The rooms are lovely,... More

We felt right at home with Carol, Jeff and Cameron. It is a cozy, welcoming atmostsphere; good conversation by the fire ( with a cat in my lap !) but privacy if you want it also. The beds are so very comfortable and it is a quiet neighborhood. You are close to all the colleges and to a lovely hiking/biking... More

It's not even really a B&B, just a couple of spare rooms in a nondescript house on a nondescript road. Would not meet any standard for decor, service or anything else. You need to walk through the grubby kitchen to get to the rooms, and once you're there, you could read a book, or ... not much else. There is... More

This review was done by a gentleman who was dissatisfied because he could not get his deposit back after he wanted to cancel the second night due to his cat allergy. We inform all potential guests about our two cats but he chose to come anyway. It was a peak weekend and we turned many other guests away after accepting... More

As someone who values her privacy, I'm not generally a fan of the sorts of B&Bs that are very much integrated into a family's life. I've discovered that this sort of accommodation works well when the owners seem like people you'd know "in real life" and when they're as thoughtful as Carol and Jeff of the Birdsong B&B. My room...

Birdsong is in a scenic rural setting that is also just around the corner from Hampshire College and minutes from the center of town. Hosts Carol and Jeff are very helpful with recommendations for local places to eat and other amenities, and they also make a tasty breakfast that accommodates special requests. This is not a doilies and crumpets type... More
