Staying at this "Painted Lady" in Haydenville, Massachusetts was a wonderful experience. Nancy and Dick Zimmer are excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for their guests. The home is enchanting as are the hosts! I spent 5 nights there and enjoyed every moment. Visited Western Massachusetts in early June and the weather was perfect--a delicious, different breakfast was served on... More

We stayed two nights with Dick and Nancy at their beautiful Victorian "Painted Lady" in Haydenville. We didn't know what a painted lady was but as our room was the Painted Lady room, we were curious and our hosts told us that is the name given to these style of 19th century houses. Really it was more like staying in... More

A lovely inn, chock full of Victorian pieces and bric-a-brac, with gracious and helpful hosts, spacious rooms, well-appointed bathrooms and an excellent breakfast. To be even better, they could update the mattress in the Purrington room, increase the heating temperature a few degrees, and offer cold cereal for those who don't want the hot breakfast entree for the day.

Dick and Nancy Zimmer were wonderful hosts. First time we stayed there and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The third floor Suite was a delightful surprise with queen sized bed, TV and sitting area. Their breakfasts were outstanding and memorable. Will definitely be back.

Penrose Victorian Inn is a gorgeous "Painted Lady" Bed and Breakfast in the Northampton area. We have stayed there twice now, in two different suites - they are all just lovely. Hosts Dick and Nancy Zimmer are warm and gracious, and knowledgeable about things to do and see in the area. And their homemade breakfast is delicious! We look forward... More

My daughter and I had a lovely stay at the Penrose Victorian Inn. The inn keepers were wonderful. The location, just outside of Northampton, was great. It was a great change of pace during our New England tour.

From start to finish, this was a wonderful experience. The room was lovely; the inn keepers were both personable and professional; and the food was delicious. I felt right at home and it made my business trip that much more enjoyable. If you want a friendly, historic and charming experience, this is the place to stay!

What a wonderful victorian home. The innkeepers are the best. They are very knowledgeable about the events happening in the area and will even print maps for you. The breakfasts are hardy and all homemade. All requests were met with ease. We would gladly stay again.

Nancy and Dick run an efficient B&B just 15 minutes outside of Northampton, convenient to Amherst and all the attractions of this area of Massachusetts. Penrose is a Victorian era home furnished with impeccable taste with period antiques. The rooms are large and comfortable. Breakfasts are substantial and well-prepared. Most of all, Nancy and Dick make you feel at home... More

We were in the area for a wedding, and the Penrose Inn helped make the whole weekend a wonderful experience. The hosts gave us good tips about where to visit in the area as well. Lovely breakfast, and meeting/talking with the other guests was a good experience.
