Local Guide to Amherst and Western Massachusetts

contentBlock_222From its enviable location overlooking the Amherst Common, The Lord Jeffery Inn is within easy walking distance of Amherst’s finest museums, restaurants, shops, and other points of interest.

A legend within the Five Colleges community and Pioneer Valley, “The Jeff” has delighted visitors to the colleges of Amherst, Smith, Mount Holyoke, Hampshire, and UMASS Amherst since 1926.

Parents, alumni, visiting professors, and dignitaries alike have made our Inn their home away from home when visiting the area. Other popular attractions include New England’s sensational fall
foliage season where you can travel along scenic routes visiting the historic towns of Western Massachusetts and take in the majesty of New England in the fall.

Enjoy the rich history of the community by visiting any one of the multitudes of museums located within minutes of the Inn including the Emily Dickinson Museum, the Mead Art Museum, or the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Amherst and the surrounding areas are also a haven for summer sports and youth camps and The Lord Jeffery Inn is the perfect spot to accommodate parents and families alike.
