The Knoll Bed and Breakfast, a spacious 12-room home of Country Tudor design, was built in 1910 on a knoll next to a small river in the area of Massachusetts known as the Five College / Pioneer Valley.

Seventeen acres of surrounding farmland and forest provide a sense of pastoral peace. The home is located in the Florence residential section of Northampton in the Five Colleges Region of Western Massachusetts.

The old home's turn-of-the-century character is defined by hardwood floors, beautiful Oriental rugs, and a majestic open staircase leading to the four bright and airy guest rooms upstairs. A large living room and adjoining library offer guests a place to relax downstairs. The living room is appointed with a fireplace and cable television, and the library offers several comfortable nooks for those who like to get lost in a good book.

Guest accommodations consist of four rooms. One guest room has twin beds, two rooms have queen beds, and one room has a double bed. When all four rooms are occupied, guests share two baths -- one with a large cast-iron tub and another with a claw-footed tub and add-on shower. All four rooms have ample closet space, and during the summer, guests enjoy New England-fresh, sun-dried bed linens. Wireless Internet is available to all guests.

A continental breakfast is provided for guest enjoyment in the formal dining room from 8:00 am - 9:00 am. The breakfast consists of juice, fruit, a choice of cereals or muffins with coffee or tea. The Inn's delicious homemade strawberry jam is a special treat.

After breakfast, you can take a stroll across the beautifully landscaped grounds of Look Park, which is within walking distance of the bed and breakfast. In addition to its myriad walking and jogging paths, the park boasts a miniature golf course, picnic grounds, playgrounds, and tennis courts.

With its location in the Five Colleges Region, The Knoll is ideal for prospective students or visiting families. Smith College, Amherst College, University of Massachusetts, Mt. Holyoke College, and Hampshire College are all within minutes of the Inn.

Bradley Field, an airport in the Hartford-Springfield area, is just an hour to the south, and Logan Airport in Boston is only two hours away. For those flying into Kennedy or La Guardia in New York City, a scenic three-hour New England drive will bring you to The Knoll.

For a fun-filled day, you may want to plan a trip to the nearby Six Flags amusement park. Historic Deerfield, only twelve miles away, also makes for an interesting side trip.
