My husband and I stayed for three nights at the end of March. Our room (Napoleon's Room) on the second floor was spacious and comfortable and looked out on a quiet side yard. The private bathroom was tiny but modern and scrupulously clean, as was the whole house.
Breakfasts in the cheery dining room were buffet style with fresh fruit salad, french toast or pancakes, sausages, yogurt (including Chobani greek yogurt), cereal and more, and an intriguing array of flavored agave syrups. Ann, the warm and friendly innkeeper, volunteered to make dinner reservations for us and her recommendations (especially Bistro63 at Monkey Bar Grill) were spot on. She also made tea for us in the afternoons when we returned from our peregrinations. All in all it was a lovely, relaxing stay in a comfortable, welcoming environment. We will gladly return to enjoy the hospitality here.
Note that the entrance on the side of the inn is reached by flight of outdoor steps. This did not present a problem for us but might be a challenge for someone with limited mobility.
The inn's location is perfect - a few short blocks from Amherst College and the shops and restaurants of Amherst. The other Five College campuses are an easy drive. Don't miss Amherst College's excellent art museum, a short walk from the inn. If you go to Emily Dickinson's house, literally right across the street from the inn, I recommend taking the 90 minute Emily Dickinson's World tour, which includes the fascinating not-yet-restored Evergreen House.
