Reviewed August 2, 2004

We had three nights here in July and were wanting a contrast with the big city (Boston) and the fancy plush hotel (Parker House). We certainly got the contrast. The Inn is caught in a timewarp, great looking architecturally with those preserved period features that make it gloomy. Agree that the room was not the cleanest, some folk will find all the trinkets and knick-knacks just too much (where do you put all your own stuff, there aren't many clear surfaces). The place has a definite hush to it and we found ourselves tiptoe'ing around somewhat. We weren't bothered by the road noise - it was the train that we heard. Certainly nothing to criticise the owners about!!! The breakfast set-up worked and we spoke to people we otherwise wouldn't have come into contact with. Got some great recommendations for things to do. Enjoyed Amerherst and the surrounding area a lot - go to the Bison farm!!!

This interesting, high victorian B&B is fitted out in dazzling 19th century decor. Unfortunately, the dark and multi-patterned style does not take to inattentive cleaning and dreary lighting. The entry hall and main staircase are unwelcomingly dark and foreboding. Our rooms had nice windows, but they were dressed in tired, worn layers of curtains and non-functioning shades. The dust that accumulated on the numerous dried flower arrangements and crocheted nick-nacks aggrivated our allergies and contributed to the stuffy, tired, cluttered feeling of the place. The delightfully situated second floor porch on the front of the house offered a bright and breezy respite, but conversation was impossible due to the constant whir of passing cars. Literally, we were a few inches apart and could not hear each other. With windows open at night (no a/c; cieling fan made continual noise), traffic noise was still prominent. Breakfast was pleasant and the company at the family style table was interesting. But overall, this gloomy place will not be on our list for a return visit.

The Allen House Victorian Inn is a magnificent physical and artistic feast for the eyes, body and soul. The level of amenities, decor, and service along with their outstanding breakfasts and the most comfortable beds that we ever slept in made for a first rate vacation experience to be remembered.The warmth of personality and the knowledge of the innkeepers of the area gave us a great appreciation of western Massachusetts.We had car trouble and the innkeepers lent us their car for the day!We did not want to leave!
