We spent four nights at Purple Gables and were made to feel so welcome by Lynda. Our room was extremely comfortable and lacked for nothing. The breakfasts were amazing!! Lynda was very helpful in suggesting places to visit and providing interesting information. Purple Gables is walking distance to the centre of Amherst which has lots of good places to eat... More

Our recent stay at the Purple Gables exceeded our expectations of a B & B. The suite is beautiful, comfortable, immaculately clean & thoughtfully appointed. Lynda is a wonderful host: smart, funny, knowledgeable & exceptionally helpful (Thanks again, Lynda– you rock!) If all that weren't enough – she is an awesome cook! Hands down, the best B & B breakfasts,... More

Perfect stay for our family of four... enjoyed having our wine outside by the gardens, walking to town for dinner, coffee on the front porch watching the sunrise through the trees, daily visits from the Portuguese and "Puerto Rican" water dogs, and above all the delicious breakfast served by our sweet host Lynda. She accommodated our gluten free diet with... More

The Purple Gables is a fantastic place. I stayed there with my elderly father and my 13 year old son, we were all very comfortable. Lynda is a terrific chef, and incredibly caring and thoughtful. We are totally taken care of and enjoyed fabulous breakfasts! It is beautiful, there is lovely local art work on the wall. It is clean... More

Perfect place to stay, very pretty, very comfortable. Lynda was so nice and she makes a great breakfast. House is just a mile outside of town so very easy to get around. Will stay again for sure next year!

This adorable B&B is a great room for a few friends to get together for a weekend. It can sleep up to four people and has a little private living room, one double bed, one twin bed in a separate room and a pull out couch. Every amenity has been thought of from robes and slippers to wonderful snacks available... More

We stayed at Purple Gables on October 20th and found Lynda to be a truly gracious and friendly hostess greeting us warmly upon our arrival and offering all sorts of local information so we could get the most out of our stay. The suite was bigger than I had imagined and there were plenty of special "added extras" for us... More

The Purple Gables is tucked among the trees and within an easy walk of 'downtown' Amherst. We loved our three nights there. The bed was incredibly comfy and the suite spacious and relaxing. Lynda is a delightful and entertaining host who takes a genuine interest in her guests and has a real zest for life. The multi-course breakfasts, served by... More

I bet Lynda would get even more five star reviews, but after so many positive comments, it is kind of hard to come up with anything new to say. The suite is beautiful and comfortable and quiet. I thought the bathroom, in particular, was very nice. There were all sorts of snacks and extras for us to enjoy. In the... More
