Four of us had some work to do in Heath. We called ahead and the gentleman who took our reservation was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and about what we anticipated. We were pleasantly surprised to wake up and find breakfast next to the motel including fresh made (and still warm) coffee cake. I walked the golf... More

Although it looks like your typical roadside motel this little surprise on Route 2 in Charlemont, MA proved to be above average. Mostly thanks to Hank and owners who actually care about their guests. Setting is quiet. Rooms were clean. Bathrooms recently updated. Decent breakfast with fresh fruit cup/salad. The couple we traveled with had a problem with the room,... More

We stayed here for a night and found everything acceptable. We neither played golf, nor tennis, nor used the pool and there were no other amenities such as coffee, or snack machines offered. The setting was great; set far enough off the road so traffic noise was almost inaudible, and surrounded by fields and pastures, it was an ideal country... More

What an awesome experience. Rustic as it may be, the room is/was clean, the linens even smelled fresh air clean. True country style accommodations. The young couple managing the resort are a very personable, 'aim to please' people. They went out of their way to make sure I felt comfortable and safe. Thank you Casi and Joe. You go above... More

The Oxbow's new owners do a couple of things well (new owners in 2012): They have introduced continental breakfast. The bagels, fresh fruit & coffee were quite good! When approached, the staff are friendly & make every effort to be helpful. They got the pool up & running for the summer after a disappointing stay in June(2013) with a pool... More

If you're looking for high end luxury this may not be the place for you. If you are looking for great service, look no further! The rooms are very basic but very clean. The staff is wonderful and goes above and beyond to make your stay stress free and comfortable. Since we are very early risers they sent a coffee... More

The room was basic, but clean. New owners, working out the details. Very pleasent staff, from making reservations to check out. Joe, the main man, was awesome! Outlined several points of interest on a complementary map. Location is great. Thanks for the "extra special" treatment!

The unique selling point of this motel should be the pool, tennis courts and general outdoor space if you have children. Otherwise the rooms are very average and there are other choices in the area offering better value (look for local B&Bs) if you are a couple. The TV was good but the advertised wifi didn't reliably reach out room... More

Friendly, family-owned motel. Our room was large. I would ask for one away from the road. There is a restaurant for breakfast and dinner with full bar right next door which is great. Good location for exploring the area. Clean cool pool on the property for a swim. Nothing fancy, but a great stay. Only negative is not having a... More

After seeing the motel we were orginainlly going to stay at, i quickly turned around and went to the Oxbow. Unfortunitly in order to accommodate my family of 6 we had to book 2 room, but was understanding that the owners want to stand by the law. It was clean and they made us feel comfortable, the kids enjoyed the... More
