excellent all around

Susan and Stephen were very helpful hosts and Stephen's cooking was great. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The only downside is that the rooms do not have bathrooms attached. However, I never found myself waiting in line for a bathroom.

Excellent all around

A lovely spot, only 10-15 walk from Amherst campus. Hosts are very pleasant, rooms are lovely. Didn't sample the breakfasts, but teas and coffee are provided throughout the day. No A/C, but that's par for the course in this area.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Sorry about the AC. The weather caught us off guard. Of course the next day was in the 40's! We do have AC conditioners for the window but wasn't expecting to need them so soon and Steve wasn't here to put them in. Hope you had a fun time with your colleagues! See you next time!

Lovely owners, great breakfast, I really enjoyed my stay

Lovely Weekend at the Horace Kellogg Homestead

5 on April 29, 2015

My two nights at this B&B were everything I could have hoped for. The Judge's room was very comfortable and I slept soundly. Sue and Steve are accommodating and friendly hosts, and made me feel right at home. This is the best way to stay for your visit to the Valley. Highly recommended.

I had a wonderful time at the Horace Kellogg B&B in Amherst! Susan and Steve were very welcoming and went above and beyond anything I hoped for. They were great company and the breakfast was excellent. The house is gorgeous and very clean - I was very impressed the whole weekend. I will be recommending them!

Kellogg Homestead is Delightful!

5 on November 07, 2014

We have stayed at the Kellogg Homestead B&B for many, many years and will go back for many years to come when we are in the Amherst area. Susan and Steve are the perfect hosts, helpful in every way. The home itself is a lovely 19th C (I think) farmhouse, lovingly restored and furnished with period furniture. We find it very homey and comfortable. Kellogg is within 10 mins. walking distance of Amherst College and the delightful town of Amherst. It is also within an easy 10 min. drive of all the other colleges in the five-college region. We would highly recommend a visit to the Kellogg B&B next time you are in the area!
