Brought daughter for her second visit to UMass Amherst and stayed with Ann and Allan at Allen House. What a great choice. Warmly welcomed even though we arrived at 1:00 AM, and daughter, who has never stayed in a B&B was charmed by the experience! She loved the school and her experience with Ann and Allen, made her feel at...

I traveled to Amherst to visit my son at UMass, and decided to try a B & B instead of a local hotel. I figured it would be a different experience, the Inn was within walking distance to Amherst Center, and the price was comparable to hotels miles away. I am glad I made that choice and was rewarded with...

I spent 5 nights over Christmas at Allen House, and it was terrific. The room was large and beautifully decorated, and the bed was very comfortable. The innkeepers are so gracious and accommodating. Ann makes a delicious full breakfast. I highly recommend Allen House and the sister inn, Amherst House.

We came up to Amherst for just one night to visit our son, and decided to try a B & B instead of a local hotel. It was like immersing ourselves in history, with lots of modern touches. Ann and Allan were extremely accomodating, and I appreciated the Keurig coffeemaker in the front room. We stayed in the Dresser room...

The hosts were wonderful! They made the experience great. Of course, the Inn was beautiful, charming, welcoming, and pleasant, too. The cookies and tea were good. The decor was beautiful. The breakfast was wonderful. Try the Scullery Room: it has a working jacuzzi in place of a bath. It is not on the website for the B&B, so you will...

I recently had an extended visit at the Allen House in Amherst while visiting my daughter. I stayed about a month and……yes the inn is lovely, historic, clean and more. What was most special of all was the welcome I received by Ann and Alan. I really felt like part of the family. I am in the same business as...

The innkeepers are engaging and knowledgeable (and Panda, the resident feline, is such a cutie). I enjoyed conversing with them about numerous topics, including local eateries and the Dickinson museum. I found the owners to be extremely accommodating and pleasant hosts. My room was inviting and spacious, and I appreciated the private bathroom. The inn contains a surprising juxtaposition of...

Allen House is a great value. It was immaculately clean and wonderfully comfortable. The decor of course is not exactly modern, but the collection of 19th and early 20th Century furnishings were a great change from standard hotel furnishings. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The only downside is having to pay cash....

My room (Lion's Den) was clean and comfortable, so no complaints there. However, the hosts seemed very put out that I arrived later in the evening (between 10-10:30 PM). They consistently made me feel as if my arrival time was an inconvenience to them and seemed annoyed when I finally arrived. I understand that they may wish to go to...
