Inn on Boltwood

Sophistication meets warmth on the Amherst Common

This picturesque 1926 Colonial Revival-style inn is centrally located in Amherst Town center and on the doorstep of Amherst College. The interior spaces were recently restored: gleaming hardwood floors are offset by white wainscoting and gilt-framed paintings dot the walls. Graceful high-backed armchairs surround the fireplace in the lobby, and the library has floor-to-ceiling shelves and plenty of space for relaxing or gathering with friends. 

Historic inn in a classic New England college town setting

What it's like

Lord Jeffery Inn groundsEach room in this historic inn has its own character: some have sunrooms, some have gas fireplaces or views of historic Amherst. Rooms with fold-out sleeper sofas are a nice option for families. Modern essentials include free wireless internet and a state-of-the-art fitness room. The downtown Amherst location means you can walk to everything: shops, restaurants, and museums—or the big game at Amherst College.

Independent spirit

Classic New England inn, modern upscale cuisine

Small touches

Have a drink or a full dinner from 30Boltwood outdoors on the covered patio. There's plenty of cushy seating around the fire pit. 

Eat and drink

30Boltwood serves upscale farm-to-table cuisine—think farm-raised duck from a local farm with wild mushrooms and burrata with black figs. Dine on leather banquettes, at the long copper-topped bar or outdoors on the patio. In-room dining is available.
