Birdsong is in a scenic rural setting that is also just around the corner from Hampshire College and minutes from the center of town. Hosts Carol and Jeff are very helpful with recommendations for local places to eat and other amenities, and they also make a tasty breakfast that accommodates special requests. This is not a doilies and crumpets type of B & B--more like staying in the comfortable and attractive home of your interesting friends from college who want you to have a lovely time visiting them in Amherst. We look forward to our next stay at Birdsong!
