Allen House Inn

599 Main St., Amherst, Massachusetts, 01002, USA

Meticulous attention to detail distinguishes this late-19th-century inn owned by a husband-and-wife team. The Stick-style structure has been gloriously restored to reflect Victorian aesthetics, but guest-room beds, topped with goose-down comforters, are the finest that modernity has to offer. Colorful wall coverings reach to the high ceilings; antiques include a burled-walnut headboard and dresser set, carved golden-oak beds, and wicker steamship chairs; and lace curtains and hand stenciling complete the 19th-century picture. If it's a fireplace you're looking for, the same owners run the Amherst Inn, just down the street.
