The Amherst Inn is located in the quaint village of Amherst within walking distance of the "downtown" area and the Tomorrow River (rated as one of Wisconsin's best trout streams). Amherst is in the heart of Amish country, and is home to the Renewable Energy Fair and the semi-annual Amish Quilt auction. The Wisconsin Ice Age Trail passes through the village and the new Tomorrow River State Trail passes just north of the village. Stevens Point is host to many conventions and conferences and provides a full range of activities and is home to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Waupaca and the adjoining Chain O' Lakes area offer many opportunities for summer activities. Portage and Waupaca counties are known for the numerous antique, arts & crafts, and gift shops located in many of the small villages like Wild Rose, Rural, Iola, Scandinavia, and Weyauwega.

The fall season offers blazing colors of the many trees and woods abundant in the area. Winter finds the area blanketed in snow, beckoning skiers and snowmobilers. Skiing, both downhill and cross-country, can be found at Standing Rocks Park. Portage county offers miles of trails for the pleasure of the biking, hiking and snowmobiling enthusiasts.

Amherst is located approximately half-way between Stevens Point and Waupaca. From Highway 10 take county trunk B (also Wilson Street) to the stop sign (Main street). Turn right and proceed two blocks. The Amherst Inn is at the corner of Main & Lincoln streets. Come and enjoy the hospitality and ambiance of a by-gone era offered by your hosts Tom Ashline & Bob Rausch.


We are located just 1/2 mile from the famous semiannual Amish Quilt, Crafts and Furniture Auction.
The Auction draws people from all over the country and is hosted by Mader & Mader Auction Services.
