Bela's B&B Sign
Bela's B&B

We have two elegant rooms, each with a private bath. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Enjoy the serene and private setting, knowing you are 10 minutes from Greenfield and Old Deerfield and just 25 minutes from Amherst and Northampton. There is a hot tub, a lovely outdoor gazebo, and miles of walking trails leave right from the property.

Deerfield Academy, Eaglebrook School and Bement School are located in Old Deerfield just over the Pocumtuck Ridge behind the B&B. People come from all over the country to ride on the Scenic Bikeway that runs past our place along the Connecticut River. We are in the heart of the Pioneer Valley with its many tourist attractions and close to Yankee Candle and the newer Kringle Candle. The Five College Consortium, composed of Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts, enriches the area in many ways.

Breakfasts at Bela’s B&B are full-serve and hearty with great coffee, fresh and ground daily. Bela serves organic and locally grown produce when possible and often includes fresh- baked muffins and baked goods. pix.

The Shintaido Center onsite has a 40-by-64-foot great room (dojo) and has been the perfect venue for business seminars, dance companies, meditation, singing and meditation groups as well as many movement workshops.

Getting here is easy. We are two and one half hours from Boston’s Logan airport, three hours from NYC, approximately one hour and fifteen minutes from the Hartford airport, and only 12 minutes from Route 91.
