We were looking for a B & B in or near Amherst but being the weekend they all wanted a 2 night minimum. Then I found Centennial House where Joan was most accommodating in allowing us the one night's stay.
Northfield is a pretty community that is well situated a half an hour from Amherst and better still, close to Vermont and New Hampshire where we planned to go after.
Joan and her sweet dog Hamish were waiting for us in the garden when we arrived and showed us to our suite upstairs. We were travelling with two teenagers so we needed two rooms; one with twin beds. The Deerfield Suite was perfect for our needs. The two rooms were exactly what we needed. Comfy beds. Large rooms. Clean and quiet. There is wifi and air conditioning and the ensuite bathroom was nothing short of luxurious.
Steve and Joan are the perfect hosts. Not only helpful in their dinner suggestions but so interesting to talk to about the history of the region, current events, and stories about the B & B.
They were interested and interesting hosts.
The breakfasts were sumptuous and always a bit different. Beautifully presented at your own table in a bright cheery dining room. If only I had remembered to get the recipes for Joan's tortes.
We had planned to stay for one night and ended up staying for three.
Would love to return again sometime.
