We went to Deerfield for a long weekend with another couple, friends who share an interest in Americana and American History. We had planned the visit for some time and the Inn was offering a nice, if small incentive to stay there. If you are interested in visiting the historic site, there is no sense in staying anywhere else. The Inn is on site and in our view lovely. A friendly and helpful staff. We got a discount on dinner and on the room as part of their promotion. The room was lovely and in keeping with the spirit of the weekend. Food was excellent as well. They offer tea also and a perfectly fine breakfast--no, a very good one. The value could not be beat. Add to that that we got free passes for the day in Historic Deerfield and we were exceptionally satisfied.
The historic site is well worth the trip: the docents are very good; the displays and the museum were very informative. Deerfield is also close to enough other sites to make the two night minimum worth while. While there we visited the Art Museum at Amherst College. It is a gem and, given that it is the museum of a small, if famous, college, the breadth of the holdings is quite impressive as are many of the works themselves. We also were close enough to visit Emily Dickenson's home and get a tour. This excursion was well worth the time and effort and very informative. All in all it was a great weekend based from a wonderful inn.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Deerfield Inn first opened in July 1884 while both a drought and grasshoppers were plaguing the village. The disasters went, but the guests stayed for "the atmosphere and charm of early days, with modern comfort and convenience" with breakfast starting at 30¢ and a room with running water from $1.50. Today we have 24 comfortable and pleasing guestrooms and farm-to-fork Champney's Restaurant & Tavern. We source locally, make our own infusions, support area microbrewers, and in our 131st year we remain the centerpiece of Old Deerfield, a National Historic Landmark, and a Select Registry Property. ... more less
