“Wonderful, home away from home, country stay.”
Reviewed November 8, 2009

My husband and I and two teenage sons spent a lovely weekend staying at The Stone House Farm while visiting our oldest son at Amherst College. We stayed in the two room suite. The two bedrooms were comfy, one with a queen bed and the other with two twins. From the quilts piled on the beds to the hand-stenciled flowers and other crafts adorning the walls, even our sons were impressed. In addition to the two bedrooms, there is a spacious bathroom and good sized sitting room. Well equipped doesn't begin to describe what is here--fresh flowers on the dining table and in each room; a television with DVD player and a stack of DVD's; a small stereo with CD's; two bookcases of books for all ages; a small refrigrator, microwave, coffee maker and electric tea kettle. And snacks!
The breakfast each day was delicious, plentiful and not overly fancy--omelettes one morning and baked french toast the next. Each served with fresh cut fruits and breakfast meats.
Innkeeper is very friendly and warm. Evidence of her 1/2 acre picking garden and decorative garden in front were impressive. Her farm animals include a very friendly cat (not allowed in guest quarters), two big goats, lots of beautiful (!) chickens and several guinea pigs (which we didn't see).
Town of Amherst is about five minutes down the road. Hiking and biking trails abound, and don't miss Judie's Restaurant for dinner--worth the wait!

I had the opportunity to stay at the lovely Stone House Farm B & B with my sisters, and found it to be a true gem in Amherst. We stayed in the charming two bedroom suite, which was large enough for the five of us, with room to spread out and relax. The suite was clean and comfortable, with nice extras like a coffee maker, microwave, small fridge with bottled water, and delicious snacks for our use. Candi's full breakfasts were delicious, and plentiful. She even used fresh eggs from her own chickens! The location is perfect for visiting UMass or any of the 5 colleges in the area, close to downtown Amherst, and a short drive to Northampton, and Mohawk Trail towns. I can't wait to visit again!.

My parents and I stayed in the second floor suite; it was great. A large bathroom, decent sized and comfortable living room, and two pleasant bedrooms. The breakfast was great; snacks were available in the room, and the location was perfect. It was a rainy weekend, so we didn't really see much of the grounds, but the house was wonderfully decorated and light. We left early on our final morning and Candi prepared us a delicious breakfast to take on the road.

We travelled for the second year to New England for our summer holiday from the UK and needed a B&B close to Boston for the first three days of our stay. We found Stone House Farm on an internet search and the website painted a wonderful picture. I am pleased to say that the accommodation was exactly as described on the website and we had a delightful stay.

Candi is a great Innkeeper and looks after her guests well even whilst running a summer camp for children. Accommodation was clean and tidy and set off perfectly with flowers from the garden. We had the two bedroomed suite on the first floor which was spacious and had everything we needed for our short stay.

Candi provided some great breakfasts which we had in our room on the first day, and on the terrace the second and third. HIghlight of the breakfasts was the eggs benedict but the scrambled eggs made with her own hens eggs were delicious!

The surrounding area is very pleasant and the town of Amherst a five minute drive away has a good selection of restaurants and shops.

All in all, we had a very pleasant stay and the location was perfect for shopping and relaxing before we headed off for the main two weeks of our holiday.

On our trip to New England one of the places we visited was Amherst, MA. We made reservations well in advance for two nights at the Stonehouse Bed and Breafast after checking out their website. What a neat place! There are chickens and goats and lots of pretty flowers. We ate a very simple but delicious and healthy breakfast each morning which Candi served right to our room. She took us on a tour of the grounds and we were impressed with all the renovations she made to the property over the years. She is an impressive person.

  • Liked — Very down to earth.
  • Disliked — No door to close for privacy in the upstairs suite.
