My husband and I attended UMASS some moons ago and returned recently for a 2 night visit. We changed our dates to stay at the Hop Brook B&B and I am so happy we did. Connie, the owner is terrific, full of knowledge about the area, an amazing cook and so friendly and accomodating. She provided information about where to eat, activities and walking paths close to the B&B. The location is perfect; close to Amherst yet quiet.
The room is very clean and private, above the garage and stocked with plenty of ammenities - books, fluffy towels, iPod docking station, tv, airconditioning and heat (can be chilly in October). There is a super comfortable bed you won't want to leave. Luckily, you don't have to far to travel as the delicious breakfast is delivered to your room on a tray. Connie provides a menu card the day before for you to select your choices - beverages, fruit, yougurt, eggs, etc. and delivery time. The room has a screen to separate the sleeping area from the kitchenette/relaxing area. Connie thoughtfully provides milk, cereal and her fantastic homemade granola. The room is relaxing, with soothing colors and tasteful decor.
We really enjoyed our stay, the conversations we had with the owners and hope to return soon. Thank you!
