Mount Holyoke College

The Deerfield Inn is less than 30 minutes from all of the five Massachusetts Colleges: UMass, Amherst, Smith, Mt. Holyoke, and Hampshire. It can be blissful to get away from the maelstrom to a comfortable and friendly place with a terrific restaurant, where you can enjoy a cocktail and share a plate of fresh, locally-sourced, and delicious food.

It’s a real pleasure to not settle for a cookie-cutter hotel and instead discover our charming, friendly, peaceful hotel Near UMass and Amherst. The Deerfield Inn is just 30 minutes away, and 300 years back in time in the heart of a National Historic Landmark Village, but offers all of the convenient modern amenities and comforts of home.

We’re just a few minutes’ walk from Deerfield Academy and Bement School, Eaglebrook School is just up the hill, and Stoneleigh-Burnham School is five miles to the north.

Come and be our guest over the times ahead whenever you visit your student! Enjoy the peace and serenity that is Deerfield, treat your student and the roommates to the best burgers in the Valley for parent credit, save time for a sometimes quirky but always original shopping experience at the artisan stores and antique shops nearby, and perhaps take advantage of one our Deerfield Inn specials or packages if you have more than one night to reward yourself during your “support-your-student” getaway.

A Recent Comment from UMass Parents

“We stayed in a beautiful room in the carriage house…. It was a beautiful nite and we slept with the windows open (which you can’t do at hotels!). We awoke to a lovely breakfast and the coffee was right there outside our door! I highly recommend this to new parents of UMass college students – only 15 minutes away from the Amherst craziness this time of year!”
