Space is a loft partitioned by curtain and bookcase. Complimentary full breakfast, espresso, organic food. Free use of snowshoes, bikes. Possible local transportation, contact us for particulars. Graduated from UMass, daughter from Hampshire College.
Home is located in a unique development within a pine grove. Just a 7 minute drive to Amherst Center and close to bike trail and conservation trails. 12 minute walk to bus.
House is post and beam construction and has an Asian flair. Loft area with futon is on the second floor. I describe the space as shared room since although it is a private space, there is a curtain and bookcase/partition for privacy, rather than a door (see photos). Shared bathroom is down the hall. Free wifi.
(We also have listed on Airbnb, a large private bedroom with king-size bed for $20 dollars more.)

HB & Alice are very welcoming hosts. They have a lovely, comfortable and easy home to feel at ease in as a guest. It is obvious they enjoy meeting new people and sharing their home, as they are well traveled themselves. I would highly recommend their guesthouse to anyone visiting the Amherst area. HB is a fine cook and makes delicious espresso lattes each morning---an added bonus!!
HB and Alice are warm and welcoming hosts, as is there home inviting and and extremely comfortable. We reserved their smaller accommodation, but gladly excepted their offer to upgrade for new king bed that is just dreamy! As we are just relocating to the area they could not have been more understanding, helpful and gracious. Thank you HB and Alice!
Lovey home and excellent hosts! I was not there much, as I only was in town for one night and had multiple engagements scheduled, but I felt welcome and was served a delicious breakfast. The house is very close to Amherst center by car, as well as Amherst College and UMass. Highly recommended.
i am writing on a very small key board, so pardon my type-o's. Our experience staying at HB and Alice's house was fantastic! His huevos rancheros was delicious, as was the hot coffee he brewed each morning. He was a delightful host, and very helpful with foodie recommendations. Anyone looking to visit the Amherst area, should contact him.
The listing was very accurate. The neighborhood was a hidden gem tucked away in the woods but very easy to get to and right off Rt.9. HB and Alice are extremely welcoming and engaging. Very easy to sit and talk to. If we didn't have plans, we could have sat and chatted with them all day. The house is warm and pleasant. A very homey feel. The experience was wonderful start to finish.
I was visiting my Daughter for Parents weekend and found the hospitality of HB and Alice to be a great compliment to the weekend. Next time I am in Amherst, I will definitely look at staying here again, and catching up with them on Korean Dramas.
Excellent first experience with Airbnb! I only wish I had been able to spend more time there. Thank you HB and Alice for your wonderful hospitality - and much needed home cooked breakfast with double lattés :)
