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!

This was a wonderful place as we traveled through western MA. The owners were so kind, and the rooms were clean. It's a one of a kind place, a gem nestled in the Amherst area, which gives you privacy, yet, you are close to the town center. Nicely decorated, and so warm, figuratively and literally! Thanks Allen House! We'll be... More

I enjoyed my one night stay at Allen House. The house is attractively decorated, very warm and welcoming. The proprietors are endlessly hospitable. My room, with ensuite private bathroom, was very comfortable. The house was quiet at night and I slept like a baby. At breakfast, I enjoyed a good meal and made new friends. I heartily encourage travelers to... More

Allen House will be my place of choice in the Amherst area. I was treated like a visiting friend, in a house beautifully decorated and well appointed. The breakfast was sumptuous, and Ann and Allen went out of their way to be helpful. It is only a short walk from the train station, too, which was a bonus.

If you ever wondered what it would be like to live during the romantic period of the Victorian era, then you would love to stay at the Allen House or Amherst Inn. Owners, Alan and Ann authentically and lovingly restored and decorated these two beautiful estates. The attention to detail is amazing. The wallpaper is actually imported and masterfully applied...

We are not B&B travelers by nature, but I thought, "why not?" since the inn was price competitive with the Amherst Express hotel chains (which had limited openings), was right on Main Street, included free breakfasts, and provided in-room bathrooms - - a very desirable feature for senior citizens like us. Allen greeted us and showed us the other open... More

Step back in time to another era, to 19th century Amherst, Massachusetts. An authentically-period decorated cottage nestled in the historic heart of beautiful downtown Amherst. Situated very near to the highly rated and beloved Emily Dickenson House Museum (for those of you who are poetry buffs) as well as in walking distance to Amherst College and all it has to... More

By far the most unique and rewarding place to stay in the area. Very lucky to have booked here as opposed to any of the other area inns. I absolutely adored my stay. The inn itself is remarkable, and highly unusual, impeccably restored and done in the visually opulent, diverse style of the Aesthetic Movement from the Victorian era (you'll... More

I was impressed from the time of booking - Allen emailed that as I was coming from Australia, I didn't need to organise a deposit! Ann and Allen were very welcoming and laid back, and the room was very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped, as well as being beautifully and authentically presented in Victorian, ie C 19th, decor. This did mean... More
