The hosts were wonderful! They made the experience great. Of course, the Inn was beautiful, charming, welcoming, and pleasant, too. The cookies and tea were good. The decor was beautiful. The breakfast was wonderful. Try the Scullery Room: it has a working jacuzzi in place of a bath. It is not on the website for the B&B, so you will... More

I recently had an extended visit at the Allen House in Amherst while visiting my daughter. I stayed about a month and……yes the inn is lovely, historic, clean and more. What was most special of all was the welcome I received by Ann and Alan. I really felt like part of the family. I am in the same business as... More

The innkeepers are engaging and knowledgeable (and Panda, the resident feline, is such a cutie). I enjoyed conversing with them about numerous topics, including local eateries and the Dickinson museum. I found the owners to be extremely accommodating and pleasant hosts. My room was inviting and spacious, and I appreciated the private bathroom. The inn contains a surprising juxtaposition of... More

Allen House is a great value. It was immaculately clean and wonderfully comfortable. The decor of course is not exactly modern, but the collection of 19th and early 20th Century furnishings were a great change from standard hotel furnishings. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The only downside is having to pay cash....

My room (Lion's Den) was clean and comfortable, so no complaints there. However, the hosts seemed very put out that I arrived later in the evening (between 10-10:30 PM). They consistently made me feel as if my arrival time was an inconvenience to them and seemed annoyed when I finally arrived. I understand that they may wish to go to... More

Lovely relaxing atmosphere in the room The Lions Den! Hosts were wonderful. Visiting family and new granddaughter. This was a perfect room on the first floor! On a previous visit with my husband to Amherst, we stayed in the Emily Dickinson room and we both loved it.

This bed and breakfast has a very nice, old-fashioned interior/bedroom. The 2 hosts were very friendly and helpful. They provided a good, full breakfast. They have two locations within about 1/4 mile of each other very close to the town center.

This inn was built in 1866 and smells like it. The main floor rooms are very dark with virtually no lighting. We requested a room on the main floor which appears to have undergone a name change from "The Walter Crane" room as listed on the internet site to the "Peacock" room. It was dirty, dusty, damp, musty and very... More

As the owner of a 1904 Victorian myself, I admired the care and attention to detail that the Innkeepers have paid to the loving restoration of this charming B&B. The room I stayed in, a corner one, was light filled and cheerful, with an unbelievably comfortable bed that rivaled those at high-end hotels.But what really made the stay special was... More

Great location, about 5 minutes walk from the city center. Beautiful room, I stayed at the Lions Den, apart from having a TV it had everything. Generous breakfast, with plenty of options and beautifully served. Wonderful hosts, kind and volunteered to pickup from the bus station. Great 2 night stay!
