My friend and I just stayed there for two nights - Steve and Susan are wonderfully accommodating, the breakfast was utterly delicious, the room was delightful, and the location very convenient - be sure to spend some time on the relaxing side porch and observing their finches! I highly recommend staying here - and will again. Linda O'Brien, Vermont

We always enjoy our stays at the Horace Kellogg Homestead. Susan and Steve are very nice and personable. The house is beautifully restored. Breakfasts are cooked fresh for you each morning and are wonderful. There are several rooms on the main floor for enjoying during your stay. The bathrooms are clean and easy to access. Even though they are shared, I have never had to wait in line for one as there are only two guest rooms sharing two bathrooms! The house is located close enough to the center of town to walk in for a nice afternoon stroll. It is also very handy to all the colleges in the area. We love it and stay there whenever we visit our son. A much nicer place than any old hotel and a better deal, too!

We enjoyed our stay at the Horace Kellogg Homestead very much. The house has been lovingly restored, leaving the historic architectural elements intact while updating for a few modern comforts. The location is close to downtown where local restaurants abound. Our room was bright and airy, the bed comfortable, and the breakfast delicious! Susan and Steve are gracious hosts. We were so glad to find such a homey lodging for such a reasonable rate.

When we arrived at the Horace Kellogg Homestead, our parking place was marked with a star, and we truly felt like VIPs during our two-day stay with warm and welcoming proprietors Susan and Steve. Our spacious rooms were immaculate, and as you can see from other reviews, the breakfasts are delicious and memorable. We were charmed by the delicate ivory-colored finches. This is a wonderful base for travelers staying in the area--highly recommended.

The B&B is quiet and comfortable, situated a bit away from the center of Amherst but easily walkable. The room was well-appointed, internet service reliable, and breakfast ample and tasty. One or the other of the spotlessly clean bathrooms was always available. Susan and Steve were cordial and helpful. And the zebra finches in the kitchen were a delight. My wife and I would certainly stay here again.

My second visit to the Horace Kellogg Homestead exceeded my expectation. Susan and Steve opened their dining room, porch, and yard to my family gathering in celebration of my son's college graduation. They provided space, privacy, wine glasses, and anything else we might have needed to enjoy the moment. I will stay there again if I am ever traveling through Amherst.

Booked this for a college visit. I have to say overall I was pretty happy with it and better yet my wife, after not being too thrilled about me booking a room with no bathroom in the room, thought it was a very nice place. The room was impeccably clean, nicely furnished with two beds, and good TV/Internet. The bathroom, which was down the hall, was one of the cleanest i've ever seen. Since this place has just two rooms, sharing it wasn't that big of a deal at all. Breakfast was fresh with a good variety. Would go again if I needed to.

Susan was the perfect host! My 2 children attend college in the area and I wanted to have them over for dessert after dinner. When I asked Susan, she said that she would set the table for us. There was tea and coffee and the kids and I had a nice time. Perfect location - 2 minutes from the center of town - with lots of dining options. I took advantage of the complimentary yoga class offered in town too. I will definitely try to get back again before my children graduate. I highly recommend Horace Kellogg Homestead!

In the Almarina room there are bedside tables with surge protectors for computers and charges. In the Judge's Room there isn't room for a bed side table because there are closets on either side of the bed but there is a surge protector for plugging in charger etc...all are in working order. The both have a on and off switch. If you found one that wasn't, feel free to bring it to our attention. Older homes weren't built for these modern conveniences so we do the best we can in keeping the old charm and modern times. We also have comfy places to sit in the common room and dining room with outlets there as well. Thanks for the review and the opportunity to address your concerns.

Sue and Steve have restored this farmhouse beautifully. They are a kind host and hostess. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are spacious, the internet works, the breakfast is excellent, and overall everything was terrific. The inn is on a main artery between colleges, so there can be traffic noise.

In a very convenient location, you find yourself in a wonderful old house, very clean and comfortable, with every convenience, and proprietors who have thought of and done everything to make sure it stays that way, and who sensitively give you as much attention or solitude as you desire.

We loved everything about the place. It was warm and cozy, as was the hospitality. Breakfast was delicious on both mornings. The beds were comfy, and we couldn't say enough good things. We will definitely head back to the Horace Kellogg Homestead Bed and Breakfast when we are back in the area.

We stayed at the Horace Kellogg home 2 nights. Our room (the Judges Room) was large, cozy, and beautifully decorated with a very comfortable, 4-poster bed.

We enjoyed our three nights with Susan and Steve. They were very welcoming hosts and their breakfasts were excellent. The house is within walking distance of the college and town, which is a good thing because the traffic on Route 9 is usually bad. It was also really good value.

Susan & Steve are terrific and extremely accommodating hosts. Their home is beautiful and they are happy to talk about their adventure in turning the historic home into a B & B.

Horrace Kellogg Homestead B&B is a very comfortable HOME. It is not swanky or fancy, but met our needs totally. Bedroom was large and clean, as was the shared bathroom, with plenty of amenities (shampoo, towels, etc.) available. But, the breakfast was homemade, plenty of it, and delicious. Our hosts were knowledgeable about the area and easily shared this info. Just an easy stay. . . .and convenient to downtown and surrounding sights we came to see.

I stayed recently with a friend of mine for two nights. The value of this inn is outstanding. So much more relaxing, enjoyable, and a better value than any of the large hotel chains in the area. Breakfast was delicious, our room was clean and comfortable, and we felt at home right away. I highly recommend this especially for families or a small group of friends traveling together.

Our hosts were lovely and gracious, and it was just what we needed in the midst of visiting colleges. Breakfast was wonderful as well (and we were urged to take some muffins with us, which were very much welcome when we missed lunch later). I found the candle scents a bit overpowering in some of the common rooms, but I think this is a common practice in B&B's. Should we find ourselves back in Amherst, we'll look to stay with Steve and Sue again, and we've already recommended it to others.

I stayed at the Horace Kellogg Homestead B&B when I came for an orientation for graduation school at UMass Amherst. The owners were incredibly welcoming, easy to chat with, and very helpful. They picked me up from the bus station and gave me names of those renting houses in the area, helping me get a jump start on my housing search for fall. Cannot recommend them enough! Wonderful people and a wonderful house!

An extraordinary lovely old home facing a beautiful valley a few blocks from the charming village of Amherst. A nice welcome, a great breakfast and when it turned out I had left my son's favorite baseball cap behind, it arrived home almost as soon as I did.

I had the opportunity to stay at this B&B last month when my daughter had her senior dance recital at Mount Holyoke College. The Inn was very close by. The breakfasts were out of this world. Susan makes the absolute beat hash browns. Steve made the greatest eggs benedict. Susan made us quiche for breakfast, two different kinds. Our room was above and beyond with the beds being so comfy. The house is stunning and the Mallets have done a tremendous job in decorating it. Everything is so clean. The bathroom even though it was shared was very nice. It was great to sit and have breakfast with the other guests. We walked in as strangers and left there as friends. Susan and Steve did everything to make our stay wonderful. This is a great place and the location is fantastic. My daughters hope to go back when they have activities at Mount Holyoke. The Mallets are wonderful people. I highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I were in town for a wedding and the Horace Kellogg Homestead was a wonderful place to stay. We immediately felt welcome, the food was great, and they made sure to check with us about any allergies we had. The room was so pretty and our bed very comfortable. I love that they keep tea and coffee available all day long, as I really love my tea. We had to leave at 5AM on the morning of our departure and they made up a breakfast bag with the yummy donuts and muffins we had thouroughly enjoyed at breakfast, along with other items that lasted us the whole way home (8 hour drive). We will certainly stay here next time we are in the area.

We were visiting our son who is a student at UMass Amherst & wanted to stay in a B & B nearby. We found the Horace Kellogg house online & we were not disappointed! The house is quite nice & extremely clean. The bathrooms are updated, the beds are comfortable, & we briefly utilized the sitting room both in the evening & in the morning. The ONLY drawback of staying there was that there was quite a bit of traffic passing by during the night. However, I'd still highly recommend it -- thank you!

My daughter and I were visiting colleges in the area. I love the location of this B&B, right down the street from Amherst.

Great history and a wonderful price!

I stayed at the Horace Kellogg Homestead this week for business travel, and felt like I was staying at home. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable with all of our modern day amenities including wireless internet and cable. I slept like a baby, and was welcomed in the morning with a homemade french toast casserole that was to die for. Sue and Steve go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and that you have everything you need, I will absolutely stay here again when business brings me back to town.

Susan and Steve perfectly blend warm hospitality with just enough space to relaxingly come and go as you please. The two rooms that are available are beautifully decorated, supporting the historical ambiance of the 1828 colonial home as well as the town steeped in history and culture. Susan consistently offered to provide wonderful breakfasts, provided at what time works best for the guest. Every time I come to the Amherst area I will be staying with them. I do not think it is possible to find a nicer place to stay.

I spent 3 nights at the Horace Kellogg B&B while in town for a wedding. The hosts are warm and welcoming, and truly enjoy their guests. Rooms are clean, spacious, and well-appointed. The beds are very comfortable. This B&B is in a perfect location -- a residential area just a short ways from the center of Amherst. There is some occasional traffic noise at night on the weekend. If you're sensitive to that sort of noise, earplugs will do the trick. Highly recommend the Horace Kellogg.

We had never stayed at a B&B before, so we wasn't sure what to expect. The Horace Kellogg Homestead B&B was a pleasant surprise! The home was clean, neat well laid out and my daughter & I were made to feel welcome. We will stay there again! T.McEnroe Kent

This historic home was exquisite in every detail! The screened porch and hammock in the backyard were extra nice touches. The breakfast was custom to our schedule and very generous portions. Definately a great value. Open windows in the summer meant a little bit of road noise but not enough to keep us away.
4,8 en septiembre 02, 2012
Steve and Sue are friendly, courteous hosts. They have decorated the rooms beautifully and tastefully. The house feels cozy, warm, and welcoming. Everything would have been 5 stars, except the house is on one of the main roads into Amherst and it can get a little noisy from the traffic.

We spent two wonderful nights here and recommend this B&B for anyone visiting Amherst. The grounds were spacious and pleasant. The rooms were perfect with comfortable chairs for reading and space for our things on the table and dresser tops. The breakfasts were outstanding. We've stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts and this one is near the top for us. Friends from Germany who occupied the other room had a similar experience. Howard & Lisa Brown

Recently stayed for multiple days at this great b&b while dropping daughter off at a nearby college. This is our third stay here and wouldn't choose anywhere else. From the exceptional breakfasts to the sunlit room where we love to stay, Susan and Steve provide a home away from home environment that allows us to relax and enjoy the Amherst area.

It was a happy surprise for Jane and I to visit Emily Dickinson finally. We live in different parts of the country- Jane in FL and I am in NH. We had been planning to go to Amherst for several years, but things kept coming up. What a treat to go to the Horace Kellogg Homstead. It was a 5 right down the line. We each had our own room - something about my snoring....and mine was absolutely perfect in every way. It was beautifully decorated and had every possible amenity.. ac- tv- beautiful windows and views- comfortable beds- lots of choice pillows.. Service was spectacular and the breakfast, super. Extraordinary value for what was charged..far less than what I think it usually costs. The bathroom was fabulous- with a large window and lots of room and many provisions such as soaps and toiletries, etc.. They thought of everything, Most of all Susan and her husband were terrific. What interesting people and they are and they have done so much for their community. It was marvelous talking to them and finding out many things about the area and "Emily"! It was just great in all ways!

My two sons and I stayed recently at the Horace Kellogg Bed & Breakfast, and we were very pleased with the room, the food, and the whole atmosphere of the bed and breakfast. We found it convenient for travel to both Amherst and Northampton, but located well outside of any commercial district or noisy residential area. I will definitely be using this bed and breakfast on future visits to the area.

The innkeepers are a lovely couple. They were accommodating without being hovering. The entire house is super clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and ample. Our 16 year old son stayed with us in our room, and he was quite comfortable sleeping on the twin bed in our room. Our queen sized bed was extremely comfortable. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. I will definitely be booking a room here the next time I am in the area.
5 en julio 06, 2012
Where do I begin? We really enjoyed this place. The innkeepers did everything they could to make our stay as relaxing as possible. The beds were so comfortable we slept like babies. Our party had both rooms in the bed & breakfast. The food was very good with a nice variety each day (fruit salad, breads, bacon/sausage, eggs, potatoes, that sort of thing). The place from top to bottom was as clean as could be. This is really a well taken care of bed and breakfast where the innkeepers care about everything, especially you.

We stayed overnight in order to attend a wedding nearby, our hosts were extremely gracious and accomodating. We ended up adding one more person to our room last minute, Susan and Stephen were both very accomodating. When we returned from the wedding late that night we managed to get locked out. we rang the doorbell waking both Susan and Stephen up in the middle of the night, we were extremely apologetic and they were nothing but gracious welcoming hosts. The rooms are clean and beautiful, the inn is situated in an ideal location within walking distance to the town of Amherst. The price is unbeatable for the area especially considering what you get in return. In the morning there was a wonderful breakfast awaiting us, we will definitely be back!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Susan and Stephen were very personable and helpful hosts, and Stephen made a delicious plentiful breakfast. Before my stay I was aware that there were not private bathrooms, but wished I had one once I was there. Very nice place, very good location and a good deal. I came from the country so hearing cars on the road during the night was not quiet for me. But for someone coming from the city, it would be very quiet.

We recently stayed at the Horace Kellogg Homestead for our daughter's graduation. The rooms were very clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. We stayed in the Judge's Room, which we liked very much and would definitely rebook if we were in the area. The bed was very comfortable. The service was excellent as was the breakfast. Susan and Stephen made us feel right at home. I have nothing but the highest praise for the Horace Kellogg Homestead and Susan and Stephen. I've already reocommended staying there to several friends.

We were on a college tour of Hampshire and the other 5 college circle. Susan and her husband welcomed us in; Stephen carried our bags up the narrow stairs.

The rooms here are huge, much bigger than many B&Bs, and we loved that. We also enjoyed sitting by the fire in the living room. The sitting space is shared with the family who owns the B&B, so that can be awkward. Both days we were there, the owner left us breakfast but went out, and the breakfasts were okay but not fantastic. We thought the food might have been better if they had been there to cook when we got up, and we thought it a bit odd to own a B&B and not plan to be there in the morning.

The house itself is great...close to downtown, easy to find, and an ideal spot for setting off into Amherst, Northampton, and all the other wonderful little towns in this college-centric area of New England. The owners are gracious and friendly. A couple small drawbacks: the musty smell that greets you when you first walk in through the garage area (fortunately, this doesn't last once you cross the threshold into the main house); and the sound of the old-fashioned boiler as water flows through the pipes in the morning (enough to ruin the restfulness for a light sleeper like myself, though this is probably only relevant in one of the two rooms, and then only during the colder months). Overall, a pleasant, reasonably-priced stay in a picturesque setting...which is itself contained in a postcard-perfect town.

We would surely stay there again.

Every aspect of our stay greatly exceeded our expectations. The value of our stay was just the starting point. The experience in the home felt authentic and cozy and the the innkeepers were absolutely wonderful and gracious. We stayed in the Judge's room which was immaculate and comfortable.

I just brought my 17 year-old to UMass, the Inn will be our home away from home for the next four years. When I come to visit I am sure she will join me -- she loves the comfy beds.

The hosts (Sue and Steve)are so warm and gracious. They pay special attention to the individual needs of guests. My 17 yo son was with me and they took special interest in providing a hearty breakfast for him as well having it ready at the time we needed. Their home is peaceful in a relaxing setting and yet very convenient to town and sight-seeing. This is our second year to stay and look forward to future visits!

We stayed at the Homestead B&B in July and were very pleased with the accomodations. As advertised, the breakfasts were outstanding, the hosts very accomodating, and the location perfect for our needs. Especially good if your sharing the visit with friends or family because of the shared bath.

We stayed at the Horace Kellogg Homestead for just one night, but we'll definitely be back for another visit. It's very close to downtown Amherst (walking distance), so it's a great location. We stayed in the Judge's room, which was spacious and comfortable. Everything is clean, beautifully decorated and makes you feel instantly at home.

This is what a b & b should be! Stayed in the Judge's room. I thought that the shared bath was going to be a big problem but it really wasn't. One of those most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, and those pillows! Terrific value and definitely recommend.

We were there while visiting Hamshire College, but it would be incredibly convenient to several of the other Amherst schools and the historic and outdoor activities as well. Our hosts were extremely friendly without being overpowering. The room was large and comfortable, and the breakfast was very nice. There's a nature center a block or two away, with several trails leaving from there. I took a nice walk that evening through the local woods without having to drive anywhere.

We (my husband, our little 9 months girl and I) very much enjoyed our stay at Horace Kellogg Homestead B&B. Very quite place, extremely clean, fancy bed rooms and delicious breakfast. The owners are friendly and super nice people (Thank you!). They like to socialize with their guests and they keep the place very homey. The B&B is walking distance to Amherst center and on bus rout. We will definitely stay there next time we visit Amherst.

My husband and I travelled to Amherst to search for a place to live and stayed at the Horace Kellogg B&B for four evenings. We had a wonderful stay. The room was perfect with a comfortable bed and lovely quilt. At first I was concerned about sharing a bathroom, but realized that it was the norm in this part of the country. The bathroom was spotless and kept very clean and sharing posed no issues at all. We spent long days driving around Western Mass exploring different areas and we always left the house with tons of energy from a delicious breakfast and returned to a quiet place to relax, watch tv or surf the net for more houses to rent. Susan and Steve are excellent hosts and gave us great information about the area, including tips on living in Massachusetts (we're moving from Florida). We would highly recommend this property.

We were more than pleased with our stay at the Kellogg Homestead. We reserved both of their rooms as we were attending a graduation at UMass. My son (the graduate) and daughter-in-law took the other room. We were so happy to find this B & B because all the other lodging in the area were gouging folks who were attending ceremonies at the local colleges/university. The hospitality given by Susan and Steve was outstanding. It really was like you were in your home. They were very accommodating to our schedule and this was very much appreciated. We would recommend the Horace Kellogg Homestead to anyone who finds themselves in the area, and are looking forward to returning sometime, perhaps in the autumn, when the scenery would be spectacular.

Clean, homey. Room somewhat noisy both from traffic and thin walls. Hosts, especially Susan, were incredibly nice and laid back. Felt like we could make ourselves at home. Excellent location.

The room was great except it was REALLY hot. We had the windows open in February. Also it was right on a main road so there was some noise from the traffic. It didn't bother me but I thought it was worth mentioning. Breakfast was great and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed two nights and enjoyed it completely. Meeting and chatting with Susan and Stephen was a pleasure. Eggs Benedict and fruit salad were a treat.

Comfortable, homey room in a relaxed atmosphere. Really appreciated the fire, the cleanliness and the delicious breakfast. Great value. Can't believe we were staying at the Comfort Inn when we were visiting our son!

The house was charming and the hosts were very friendly. No in-room/bed service, though. We chose a bnb for the extra rooms to sit and relax, but while we were there, the hosts' kids & friends were visiting and their family took over the house. We wish we could have used the living/dining room in the evenings to make phone calls, read, watch tv, etc., but felt stuck in our bedroom instead. But, the price was really reasonable.

We recently stayed at the lovely and intimate Horace Kellogg B&B in Amherst, MA. We couldn't have been more pleased with the ambiance, the comfort and the general feel of the place. We felt as if we were home. Susan was a delight and her breakfasts were a real treat. I would highly recommend the Horace Kellogg. The ease of its proximity to get to town, the five colleges and everything else Amherst has to offer make it an unexpected treat!

The rooms are spacious,clean and comfy. The room did face the road but after 10ish the traffic slows down. The earplugs were a help. Comparing the rates with other B&B's, hotels and motels, it was a great value.

After a long day at a college open house, it was nice to take a warm shower and snuggle into a cozy comfy bed. It's right up the road from several colleges, easy to get to. Plenty of room...all the basics. Please note , this house is right on the road so there IS trafic noise.......with each passing car. Ear plugs in the room would be a plus. Never met Susan. Stephen was rather quiet.......said good morning, brought me some french toast, answered a question or two and that was about it. It was fine with me, as I was just there for about 10 hours to rest ! All in all a good experience and I would certainly stay there again....and probably will!

enjoyed a warm and comfortable stay in the Judge's Room while visiting our daughter at college; during our delicious breakfast of French toast we were serenaded by Paula on the piano; Steve and Susan are very gracious hosts

The location, within walking distance of Amherst College, and the quiet attractiveness of this beautifully renovated historic (1828) home make it a great choice for visitors to the Five-College area. The two comfortable and tastefully furnished guestrooms share a spacious and well-appointed bath down the hall. Breakfast in the lovely large dining room was delicious!

Very welcoming on arrival. Interesting dwelling. Good location. Choice of good breakfasts.

Our room was large and very comfortable. The only negative is that the house is on a very busy street and our room (as is the other available room) is at the front facing the street, so there was a lot of road noise late into the evening, and starting fairly early in the morning. We stayed in the summer, and did have the windows open, so this might not be a factor if the windows are shut.
