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!

Winter in New England!

Kellogg Homestead is Delightful!

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!

Great B&B - kind hosts, great service, very yummy breakfast. The room was delightful and a robe was provided for each guest. We enjoyed it tremendously. I would suggest they improve on a few little things - list on their website that rooms have window A/C (no central air), label towel hooks in the bathroom for each room so no one gets confused, post reminders about shower sharing courtesy, and maybe add a bit more counter space for guests' toiletries. Overall - a wonderful experience.

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
