My husband and I spent this past March at Amerscot as part of a 10day anniversary trip to Massachusetts. I selected the inn for it's location and because of the history of the house. The great ratings from others made the decision all that much more easy. The property and the rooms were everything and more than I expected. Vicki pays great attention to making your experience an absolute joy. From the coffee and goodies in your room, to the treats and drinks available throughout the day, the wonderful and abundant breakfasts and to a nice glass of wine at the end of the day relaxing in the living room. If you are in the area put Amerscot on your itinerary; you won't regret it.
I am the 53rd person to post a review on this page. Of the 52 before me, only 9 gave less than a perfect score. I read all nine, and there is not a single complaint listed. Not one! I'm actually mad at those nine people. That's how wonderful this place is. I'll let the next 52 reviewers tell you why. :) --Bobby Choquette
Amerscot House Inn is truly a comfortable and gracious place to stay. The only problem with our stay there was that it was too brief. Viki has thought of everything, down to the smallest detail, in creating an inviting retreat. She and her crew strike just the right balance in providing attentive personalized care to their guests. We stayed in the Conant suite, which was spacious, well-appointed, historical but with all the modern conveniences. Very comfortable bed, complemented with bottled water, chocolates, and fresh flowers. Sitting room with TV, writing desk, well-stocked coffe/tea maker, spacious closet. Large bathroom with shower, spa, double vanity, plenty of personal care supplies, large towels and even robes. Multiple common areas downstairs, with plenty of books and movies to borrow, and a good assortment of complimentary snacks and drinks for the guests. WiFi throughout, of course. Breakfasts were noteworthy. A variable menu each day with your choice prepared to order - traditional eggs/sausage/veggie/potatos, or pancakes/waffles, etc. Local ingredients, freshly prepared, and delicious. Plus a sideboard full of granola, fresh fruit, bread, etc. Some B&B's serve guests all together family style; some serve a buffet with guests coming and going and sitting together or apart as they please. At Amerscot, you can choose a time and have your meal prepared just for you, and sit at one of a few places, where you have the option of being by yourself or mingling with other guests. We sat by the window and watched the bluebirds, cardinals, wrens, goldfinches, woodpecker (and a bold chipmunk) gather by the feeder outside. Plenty of historical sights and museums to visit in the area, of course. And a variety of good food, both casual and fine dining options. Definitely one of the nicest places we've stayed at anywhere!

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!
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.
Viki Carter is a legend! A wonderful hostess! We stayed for one night, and one glorious breakfast! An absolutely wonderful experience. A beautiful home, a warm welcome, luxurious bed, top rate breakfast and a completely perfect stay. I would recommend this for anyone and everyone who wants a top quality experience with a warm and inviting atmosphere.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
Amerscot Inn is one of the finest B&B's or inns we've ever stayed at, including those of Europe. And the hosts, Viki and Andy, were simply wonderful, welcoming and accomodating. We are looking forward to returning on a future visit to the Boston area.
We toured the Berkshires, Amhurst, and Concord over a seven day period in September, 2011,and tried 5 or 6 different inns just for fun. This was by far our favorite. It was gorgeous, spotless, the innkeepers were charming, they met our every need( incredible breakfast, complimentary beer, wine, coffee, hot tea, soft drinks and many, many snacks, chocolates in our room), and the price was so very reasonable. We paid far more in a Concord Inn that provided far less hospitality. We hope to return when we come to explore the rest of Massachusetts. Anne and Ray
We were completely enchanted with both the Inn and the Innkeepers! The hospitality went beyond any of our expectations. Our family took the entire house and each thought they had the 'best' room (in truth - they're equally comfortable)! The beds are the most comfortable anywhere, and amenities, quite simply, the best available. No detail was left undone. The made-to-order breakfast each morning was fresh, hot, bountiful and utterly mouth-watering! She is an extraordinary cook! When we returned in the evenings, there were freshly baked cookies and fruit awaiting our arrival. Nothing was left to want! We're already planning our next stay!
Amerscot House Inn is a gem of a find. We chose this B&B to have a country setting and yet to still be convenient to amazing areas of Massachusetts. This Inn ranks at the top of all the others in which we stayed. It was obvious from the onset that the guest's comfort and convenience were the goals of the Innkeeper. From the fresh flowers in the room, to the tea and coffee service in the common area, not to mention the fresh fruit, snacks, and amazingly stocked refrigerator (and freshly baked cookies each evening), this B&B is a step above all others we've tried. Oh, and the breakfasts were amazing! Most of the food was organic and local. The only problem we had was that the breakfasts were so varied and scrumptious, that my wife and I easily blew our perpetual diets. C'est la vie. Viki was prompt about answering emails, and both she and Andy were most helpful in making recommendations for area outings. Since we only scratched the surface of things to do in the general area, we will definitely be coming back!
We were there for a three night stay around one of the bigger weekends in our lives. I was on my way to meet my brother for the first time in my life and we stayed there the night before. It was calm and quiet and there was a great common area where we could read and relax. The food was incredible, the inn keeper was fantastic, and we really enjoyed it. We've stayed at B&B's throughout the U.S. and Ireland and this was the best of them all! I would recommend the house to anyone looking for a place to stay within 25 miles of their final destination. I can't say enough about it.
I was working in the area for a week and hunted around for quiet accommodations. Although there were a few options in nearby Concord I have a penchant for B&Bs. From the outset Viki and Andy responded to my emails quickly and professionally. I chose the Gardner Room and arranged my work day to take in their beautifully-cooked English breakfasts. With many restaurants around the area, casual evening dining was not a problem. Amriscot House Inn was very quiet and a separate guest living room was well-stocked with lots of goodies; wine, beer and some of Viki's delicious home-baked goods. Andy was a lot of fun too (for an accountant), and didn't need to raise the "Black Bess" to sort out any of the guests. A German from Bose also stayed the week while visiting the local Bose factory too. I'd also recommend a history visit to the nearby Minuteman memorial sites. Warm, quiet, comfortable, welcoming - who could ask for more ?
I cannot rave enough about this lovely B&B. Our stay was comfortable, homey and completely exceeded our expectations. The food was also outstanding and the inn keepers were lovely. I would recommend this highly to anyone. Well done!
We stayed at the Amerscot House Inn for a full week and could not have been happier. The beds are like huge clouds with exquisite high thread count cotton sheets, the towels are big and lush and the whole place is immaculate. The breakfast is filled with fresh fruit and yogurt and home made pastries and the egg and other breakfast dishes were indescribably delicious. The owners are warm and friendly and entirely professional. The house itself is beautiful and filled with original eighteenth century details. It also manages manages to be very quiet and private even when it is full. I would not consider staying anywhere else in the area and am very inclined to go back just to stay at the Amerscott Inn. It is perfect in every detail and should not be missed.
Our stay at the Amerscot exceeded our expectations. Viki and Andy provided an atmosphere so relaxing and comforting to complete our 3 days . From the wonderful bed sheets and towels down to the tastey breadfasts experience made it great. We would stay there again.
My wife and I recently toured NE and the Hudson Valley, staying in 10 B & B's along the way. Without question, our stay at Amerscot House Inn with Viki and Andy was the highlight of the trip. They truly have "thought of everything" to make your stay enjoyable, from the delicious cooked-to-order breakfasts from a menu that changes daily to the ironed sheets. Viki is a wondeful hostess, who succeeds to applying the Golden Rule to innkeeping. While a B & B is usually thought of as a "means to an end", Amerscot is an "end in itself".
We recently stayed at Amerscot for two nights while visiting the area and were thoroughly impressed with the quality that we'd only previously found at top-of-the-line hotels. Not only were the amenities luxurious but the breakfast was made to order and Viki and Andy were the most gracious hosts. This is a local jem!
My husband, 2 sons, and I stayed at the Amerscot House Inn for four days in late June of this year (2010). I'm not sure where to start the experience was so pleasing. The first thing I'll say is that Viki and her husband Andrew are wonderful, generous people and it was a pleasure to get to know them. They served us up delicious breakfasts each morning with a new dated menu for each day! Everything you could need they had in little baskets around the house - any bathroom items, sunscreen and bug spray, snacks, drinks including wine and beer, free and available. The place is a wonderful combination of old and new, with gorgeous ancient wood floors and fireplaces, as well as a fully functioning computer and printer for guests to use. I recommend it for anyone looking to be taken care of in great style.
My wife & I were lucky enough to spend one fabulous night at the Amerscot House. We have never been to a B&B that catered so much to their guests. Every imaginable amenity was supplied. Vicki and Andy are delightful hosts and treated us like old friends. The house & the grounds are beautiful, and offer a rich and detailed history. We look forward to the time our travels take us back to the area so we can stay there again.
My husband and I stayed in the Gibson Room at Amerscot House Inn this Mother's Day weekend. The suite was gorgeous and the beds luxurious - I had the best sleep I've had in a long time. Friendly hosts, immaculate and tastefully decorated, lovely products, plenty of towels and Viki's home made waffles were incredible. Absolutely recommend it. We cant wait to go back there again.
