Quaint and cozy, warm atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

The Sandstone Suite is nicely decorated in a warm style evoking a feeling of belonging to this historic area. The beds in both rooms are comfortable. The suite was clean. The suite was private and was a wonderful retreat from the days' activities. The kitchen was cute with a small table and chairs, small fridge and microwave. I didn't cook. But I reheated leftovers from the many local restaurants which were within walking distance. And I made a nice cup of tea in the evening before bed. The two tvs and DVD player made nice entertainment when my teenage grandchildren stayed with me. Wifi was consistent so I was able to keep up with personal social and business matters.

I really liked having a dedicated parking spot near the entrance. The location is close to many Ohio attractions including Cedar Point, and Lake Erie. The turnpike and highways are closeby making it easy to get to other locations quickly.

I enjoyed my peaceful stay at the Sandstone Suite. It really was a home away from home. The owners were easy to work with from the minute I made my inquiry to rent, throughout my stay, and throughout checkout.

I stayed here three weeks and I definetly would stay here again for a short or long-term stay.

Although I stayed in the winter, I've included some summer activities in this review. While some of the activities I've mentioned in this review are summer activities, I lived in Ohio many years ago and have been to all the attractions I've mentioned in this review.

As a winter guest I enjoyed shopping, restaurants, and short, quick trips to relatives and old friends living in nearby towns. And, of course, relaxing at the Sandstone Suite.

The suite was the perfect place for our family of four to stay while visiting family in the area. It was great for our kids to have their own room, and there was a storage area for our luggage, coats, bags, etc. The separate kitchenette offered another place to hang out and keep our snacks and leftovers. We enjoyed watching a movie and playing a game provided in the suite. We ate at some good restaurants just a couple of blocks away and found the location very convenient. This will be our first choice when we travel to the area!

Nice/Cute Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This bed and breakfast is adorable, and in a great location for night time bar fun! I wasn't too sure what to expect but staying here was really convenient and they had all the amenities plus more! They had a pack and play and sound machine already sitting in the room which was a plus! I didn't even have to ask for anything because my room already had it. If I ever visit Amherst again I know where I'll be staying.

Best in the area!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely spotless and extremely well maintained, the suite was a perfect choice for us. Located in the heart of downtown Amherst, it was walking distance from all the cute shops, the movie theater, even The Old Spring. Ten minutes drive to Lake Erie and all the ethnic restaurants of Lorain, but located in safe and friendly Amherst, I can't think of a better location in the entire area. The suite is located above a pizza place so we were worried about food odors and noise, but there was absolutely no problems at all. No noise and no odors at all. We had privacy and could come and go as we pleased with no difficulties and no hassles. Plenty of parking too. Not wheelchair accessible, but otherwise ideal for anyone!
