Purple Gables Bed & Breakfast
Purple Gables Suite
As you enter Purple Gables Bed & Breakfast through your private porch entrance, you will find a spacious, sunny, private suite awaiting you. A Favrile glass fixture gently illuminates the charming dining area. The southern exposure bathes the gracious leisure room in sunlight. Its sofa bed, comfortable seating, and small library are designed for relaxation. A desk and chair provide the ideal location for dashing off a post card, planning your afternoon excursion, or working on your novel. The romantic sleeping area contains an inviting queen-sized, pillow-top bed enveloped in a floral quilt and pillows in your choice of firmness. An antique stained glass window enhances the private bath- outfitted with thick white towels, guest bathrobes, excellent vanity lighting, a hairdryer, and other touches to make it feel like home. Walking past the bathroom and through the back door you will find yourself on the back patio in the center of the gardens. An ever-changing palette showcases the innkeeper's love of flowers and her unique knack for botanical beauty. A small seating area on the upper terrace provides a private nook for meditation or repose.
At Purple Gables you will enjoy the very best of the bed and breakfast experience. A gourmet breakfast is served each morning in your suite. The refrigerator is stocked with yogurt, granola, and other snacks. Additional amenities include microwave, coffee maker, hairdryer, clock/radio with iPod charger, wifi, cable
TV, DVD, a bicycle, and an iron & ironing board. Your friendly innkeeper can guide you to a wide variety of activities and sights, as well as great museums, historic neighborhoods, and hidden views tucked here and there throughout Amherst and beyond.
