Emily's is charming but you have to be prepared to take it for what it is. Rather than a hotel, mily's feels like a kind Pioneer Valley hippy has opened her quaint home to you and doesn't think you need much privacy. Even the reservation process, which required that we correspond with Emily by actual mail (!) was a throw... More

We (three Amherst College alums) stayed in the carriage house and it was just so cute. Great wide open space, with lots of windows and natural lighting. There are 3 beds (one double and two singles) and plenty of seating space and a desk if you need to work. The breakfast is continental style and they take only cash, but... More

Emily's is a great place to stay. However, if you're into slick boutique hotels or you want the heavy on the chintz, hostess in a frilly apron making fresh pancakes every morning type of New England B&B experience, than perhaps Emily's is not the place for you. It's more a home away from home. There's no fancy cooked breakfast but... More

If you enjoy spiders in your bathroom, mosquitoes and ants in your room, old mattresses, rock-hard 20-year-old pillows, blankets with rips in them, dust bunnies everywhere, stale supermarket-bought muffins masquerading as "breakfast", then by all means stay at this B&B! On the positive side, the owner is very nice, the garden is lovely and it's steps away from Amherst attractions.

We had a wonderful time staying at Emily's. We stayed on the carriage house, Katherine's room. It is a quiet place. Good beds, good breakfast, you won't regret a stay here! Room was a bit noisy but no different from most hotels we stayed. Ryanne en Sven from Holland

As noted, rather more a "guest house." Carriage house (actually, barn) has two bedrooms each with double bed, and a top floor (hayloft of the barn) "suite" with double bed, two twins, sitting area, screens for privacy if needed. Self-serve breakfast; we have always found ample, fresh food with considerable variety (small pastries, English muffins, fruit, cereal, coffee, milk, juice,... More

we thought from reviews that Emily's would be a good choice, especially its location in Amherst proper. WRONG!!! For breakfast , we found a stale package of English Muffins , stale mini muffins and 2 small pastries under plastic wrap and fruit (2 bananas, 2 small bruised apples and twelve grapes) THIS WAS BREAKFAST? at the priciest B & B...

I realize I called last minute and that I didn't have a lot of options, but honestly. Whoever rented me the room for the night was very nice, but for what it claims to be, it's overpriced and under-done. And they don't take credit cards. As soon as I arrived and was settling in, someone came to the door, banged... More

First, think of this as a guest house rather than a traditional b&b. Stayed in the Emily Suite with two friends from writing group. Cotton sheets were so soft & clean and one of the things that matters most to me. Furnishings were comfortable and there was plenty of space for all 3 of us. Two others stayed in the... More

Had never been to bed and breakfast before, so wanted to experience it. We grew up not too far from the area, came back for visit. We enjoyed the whole experience. Great space, lovely antique furniture, comfy beds very clean. Fresh muffins and pasteries every morning with coffee, juice or tea. Just a great atmosphere!! Can't wait to go back.... More
