“Second Visit - Better than ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

I returned to the Deerfield Inn for my second visit. This time my husband and 9 and 11-year-old girls came with me. We stayed in one of the family suites in the Carriage House. It was perfect for a family - one room with two beds and another room with a queen (plus two baths). The rooms were closed off with a door that provided complete privacy. The rooms were historic in decor, yet offered all the high-tech options our "plugged in" family needs - flat screen TVs, wi-fi and a great DVD library!

We ate at Champney's Tavern on our first night. It was fabulous - great burgers and my flat iron steak salad was the best! We all really enjoyed a relaxing dinner in the Champney's Tavern. I'm not a martini drinker, but we were amused by the 100 martinis on the menu - all named after illustrious Deerfield characters.

The inn is part of the Historic Deerfield museum, and therefore guests of the inn can get free passes to tour all the preserved homes and museum at Historic Deerfield. Extra value!

My kids, husband and I all felt so comfortable at the inn. My kids felt it was part inn, part hotel, given the tavern and fine dining restaurant. I felt welcomed by the friendly staff and wonderful innkeepers too. I highly recommend the Deerfield Inn to everyone - families, couples, historic travel buffs.

The Deerfield Inn is the perfect place to stay when visiting Old Deerfield since it is centrally located in the midst of all the historic houses on The Street. To stay at the Inn is to enter into early American history, since the main building itself is very old and furnished in antiques. The rooms are comfortable and charming and give you a sense of history. While we were there, the Inn's restaurant Champney's was preparing excellent meals in kitchen tent out back (!) while the regular kitchen was being renovated. If they could produce meals like that in a tent, we can't wait to go back and see what they can do when the new kitchen is done. What we loved most about our stay was having dinner on the front porch at a small table set with white linens and flowers and watching the occasional pedestrian or bicyclist or car go by. It was a lovely experience with a touch of nostalgia in an unspoiled little corner of the world.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your visit. We are so glad you had a great experience. If you like the quiet of August, come back in December! No dinner on the porch, but you could eat dessert by the fireplace! xoxo

I passed through Deerfield years ago and hoped that I when I came back I could stay in the beautiful inn I saw there. My husband and I finally stayed the night last week and it was the most beautiful room we stayed in on our entire tour of New England. We stayed in a Superior King Room at the front of the inn (the windows overlook the top balcony), Room 141. The person at the front desk was very friendly and we checked out two DVDs to watch that night (they have a great selection for free). We slept very well and it was very quiet and peaceful. All the other inns we stayed at had a third floor so people would creak around above us, but this inn only has rooms on the second floor, so it was wonderful. I recommend a trip to Mt. Sugarloaf about ten minutes away. We grabbed a subway and had a picnic at sunset. It is only about a five minute drive up to the summit and the view is well worth it! We had a very nice sit down breakfast included in the price, with cereal, fruit, toast, bagels, juice, etc. with a choice of purchasing a hot meal, which we didn't need. The dining room was beautiful, as all the rooms at the inn were well decorated. We toured Historic Deerfield that day and found it very interesting and fun to visit. We also loved the Emily Dickinson museum about a half hour away. We will stay there again!

Just returned from 3 nights at the Deerfield Inn. Just lovely. Staff exceedingly gracious and helpful. Room (in Carriage House) was large and immaculate. This tiny authentic colonial town is as charming as Williamsburg, VA, minus the crowds and buses.

Our feedback: Front desk folks very friendly and helpful, room was
exceptionally nice and clean, and restaurant was very much to our liking.
Food was great and staff very professional and friendly. This is the fifth
year we have stopped at Deerfield Inn on our way home to PA. from the Maine
coast. We hope to repeat this pattern for many more years to come in the
future.

The inn is located on the main street of Historic Deerfield. All the historic sites are within walking distance; once you arrive, there is no need to use your car again. The inn is immaculately maintained. It has an elevator, air conditioning, and handicap access. The decor of our room was in the spirit of the bedrooms in the period houses of Historic Deerfield, although with reproduction furnishings. The bed was comfortable with nice linens and included a counterpane and quilt. Our room faced the main street but since there was no noise, we were not disturbed. All the staff at the inn were friendly and eager to please. The food was excellent, using local ingredients whenever possible. The menus at lunch and dinner accommodated those wanting a full three course meal as well as those wanting a simple salad or hamburger. Continental breakfast and afternoon tea with homemade cookies were both complimentary. We had a lovely three day weekend and highly recommend Historic Deerfield as a destination to visit and the inn for your place to stay when there.

The Inn was a traditional New England Inn in a quiet central town setting. The room was not large but comfortable and modern conveniences (Flat screen TV, internet, DVD). Comfortable bed. The restaurant was excellent (French Onion soup, New England clam chowder, Lobster Cakes, Shrimp and Scallops w/ Pasta, Maple Creme Brulee -- all these dishes were excellent. Ambiance and service was great too. I'd highly recommend if you are in the area and want to kick back and relax (even if visiting the colleges in Amherst (only 20 minutes away).

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Deerfield Inn first opened in July 1884 while both a drought and grasshoppers were plaguing the village. The disasters went, but the guests stayed for "the atmosphere and charm of early days, with modern comfort and convenience" with breakfast starting at 30¢ and a room with running water from $1.50. Today we have 24 comfortable and pleasing guestrooms and farm-to-fork Champney's Restaurant & Tavern. We source locally, make our own infusions, support area microbrewers, and in our 131st year we remain the centerpiece of Old Deerfield, a National Historic Landmark, and a Select Registry Property. ... more   less
