The Black Walnut Inn, fronted by a stately Federal style brick home built in 1820, sits on acres of lawn shaded by tall black walnut trees. Located in historic North Amherst, we're just a few minutes from Amherst More College, Deerfield Academy, UMass, and Hampshire College. A delicious homemade breakfast is included with your stay. Less
