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

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!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your kind words and details about your stay. I am sure your review will be read (as I read comments before I book our stay on vacations) and help the next person decide that this is the place for them! Welcome back anytime!

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.

We felt welcomed and at the same time we were left alone to relax in the common areas of the house. We spent a soothing afternoon in the enclosed porch room.

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.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We so happy to hear that your stay with us was comfortable. When we travel, we appreciate "Excellent value" also. The finches are very "Welcoming". Hope to see you in the future.
