Wonderful Experience

We had a lovely time visiting Vicky and Andy at the Amerscot. They treated us and our two year old daughter like family, and the building and grounds are marvelous. We felt like guests in their home. so much so that I found myself feeling guilty that I could not help with the dishes. The rooms were the right mix between cozy and modern and the sitting/breakfast rooms were inviting. The breakfast was simply amazing. We are already planning our next trip there!

A True Gem!

We stayed at Amerscot House last year, and still talk about what a wonderful place it is.. The Inn is a charming blend of comfort and luxury, together with a lovely "old world" feeling. The grounds are beautiful, and we were able to do lots of interesting sightseeing in the area. Viki is such a kind and considerate hostess. What really warmed our hearts is how she made a big effort tin order to accommodate our special Kosher diet, and served us a delicious fresh and kosher breakfast each morning. You can tell that she really cares about making every guests's stay a great one.

A lovely stay

I wish we could have stayed longer at the Amerscot Inn. It was a wonderful getaway and the food and hospitality were outstanding.

We have stayed at many B and Bs, but none are better than Amerscot House. It is thoroughly clean, the meals are superb, the ground beautifully manicured,and the British hospitality makes for the ultimate in comfort.

We stayed here for two nights in May and had a wonderful time. Vicki is very helpful with directions that are written on cards with a map, breakfast was excellent and the rooms are lovely. Great experience. Stay here if you are in the Boston area, you won't be sorry!

I wanted to move in.

My family stayed here for two nights. I wanted to either move in, or take the bed and sheets and breakfast with me when I left. Slept like a baby, ate breakfast like a king. Wonderful place, wonderful hosts.

90th birthday weekend

5 on May 05, 2012

The close family were in the Boston area to celebrate my Dad's 90th with a trip to Fenway on it's 100th (unfortunately the Sox lost to the hated Yankees 15-9 after leading 9-1). We took three rooms at Amerscot Inn on the Friday night and all four on the Saturday. The house and grounds are magnificent, complete with 18th century English furniture, mostly imported by Viki from the old country, and wild turkeys in the back yard ! The breakfasts are truly fabulous. Touches like the complimentary snacks, cookies, beer (craft), wine (local winery), coffee, tea, soft drinks, etc. are almost unheard of (at least I don't remember ever having them). And the hosts, Viki and Andy could not have been more sincerely friendly and accommodating for our every whim. As the Belgian part of the family would say "il n'y avait pas photo" - an absolutely superb hotel, let alone B&B.

icing on the cake for grandfather 90th-fenway 100th weekend

The location is great and in proximity of Boston. The gardens and house are perfectly maintained and beautifully decorated. The rooms are spacious and luxurious, and actually truly relaxing. The house and amenities are clean, the water pressure is great (minor detail,but very important to me!) Breakfast was diverse, personalized and delicious!! The hosts are delightful,agreable and just great people! Overall, a five star stay!

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you had a great weekend here with your family. It was an honor to be part of such a special celebration and it was a pleasure having you all to stay. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate it. Best wishes, Viki

At The Top

We have stayed at dozens of B&Bs from Hawaii to Germany, and the Amerscot House Inn ranks at or near the top of them all! The attention to detail provided by our charming innkeeper allowed my wife and I to completely relax in the type of Early American atmosphere that we so enjoy. After our departure, we discovered that we had left a customized biomedical apparatus behind; Viki had already made arrangements to forward it to us at her own expense. We feel as if we have a friend in Stow to whom we hope to one day return.
