I stayed here with my daughter while we were in town touring Smith College and UMASS. Our room was quaint, the beds were amazingly comfortable and ideal for reasting our weary bones after a day-long drive up from Atlanta. We stayed two nights, enjoyed our breakfast - which, unfortunately, we were not able to indulge due to school interviews and... More

We had a great stay at the Amherst Inn. It is a 2 minute walk to Amherst center and a short walk to Amherst College and Umass Amherst. Easy distance to the bike path for running in the morning. The room was lovely, spacious, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and had several hot and cold options, and lots of... More

We felt very fortunate to be able to get a booking on short notice, and couldn't have asked for a better spot, or a kinder welcome, or a nicer breakfast. And the bed! After a long day of driving, it was just right.

The staff was so kind, the room was very comfortable and the food was great! Also very convenient to the center of town and to the University. I will stay there again, and will recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

I spent a night at the Amherst Inn under a snowstorm...! They accomodate me even if I ring the bell at 11.00pm..! Very cozy Inn, super clean and warm. I love the room, bed are great and very welcoming. They help me the day after to remove a ton of snow from my car to gain access to the street.... More

Great weekend in Amherst at the Inn. Very comfortable rooms, fabulous breakfasts, Ann and staff were extremely gracious and welcoming. Appreciated decor and common areas to visit with friends. Would highly recommend this B&B.

The Amherst Inn is truly a step back in time, lovingly decorated by Ann, who is there to cook individual breakfasts for the guest - hot full breakfast! The inn has 9 rooms, all with private baths and all immaculately decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very nice. The Inn is within walking distance to Amherst... More

My family stayed here when I was still attending Amherst College, and they recommended it when I returned to visit the college with my boyfriend. We stayed in one of the second floor rooms with a queen-sized bed, and it was perfect--cozy and warm in the middle of winter. The decor is lovely, and the hostess was very welcoming and... More

I stay here periodically when I'm in Amherst for work. Great location and wonderful house. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are large and quiet, with free wifi. For the summer months, there's also a lovely back porch and garden to enjoy.

The Amherst Inn is a warm and welcoming B&B in a great location just minutes from downtown Amherst. We were visiting Amherst to visit UMass Amherst and to see a cousin in a local play so location was very important. To be honest, we are not really B&B people and prefer all the comforts of a hotel; however, the Amherst... More
