We stayed at the brookside motel portion of the 1896 house. On the good side, the room was exactly as shown and described on the website. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the room was very nicely decorated! The Innkeeper was very accommodating and kind to us, and allowed us to cancel our second night without penalty or problem.

Not kid friendly at all! Very paper thin walls and very outdated tiny rooms, way overpriced for no amenities and size and update of rooms Hot water didn't last very long in shower. Won't go again and don't recommend anyone with kids to stay there.

We stayed here on a Living Social deal and couldn't be more satisfied. Our room was charming and very clean and comfortable. The wine and truffles waiting for us were very welcome. Breakfast was good and plentiful. The four course meal included in the deal was awesome. All staff were friendly and helpful. Can't think of a single thing to... More

First off nice people, I felt after seeing the room it was "really" overpriced. The room was small and dated, the hot water went cold before I filled the 2 person hottub and to our surprise the included breakfast was not what I expected. My fault maybe, but I won't stay there again.

It is unfortunate, but this guest thought he had booked one of our Luxury Suites on line, but he had accidentally booked a motel room. Of course his expectations were not met neither with the room, nor with the breakfast. We told him that if he had let us know on arrival that he expected a Luxury Suite, we would... More

My husband and I went last weekend on a Living Social deal that I had bought him for Christmas. I have to say, it was the best deal I've ever purchased! I had spoke to Denise a couple of times with questions before we arrived, and she was wonderful! The woman that checked us (Regina?) in was equally helpful. We... More

Great place to stay, clean and not far from the mountain. The staff was excellent, very understanding. It's just a small walk to Resturant on site which has great food. Breakfast in the morning if you want which has just enough to give to you the energy you need. I recommend this place and look forward to staying here again... More

We decided to save money and not stay at the base of Jiminy Peak and instead opted for 1896 House just 15 minutes away. We were pleasantly surprised by the nice room given the modest price. Growing up I stayed in motels and Holiday Inns with my family, but as an adult this was only my second motel stay. We... More

Conveniently located for a ski trip to Jiminey Peak in the MA Berkshires. My #1 requirement is clean and this place was spotless! Very nice breakfast each morning and we had dinner in their pub which was so charmingly decorated and the food was great. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in a Suite, which really isnt a suite, just a larger room with an open dressing area. The room is nothing special. There is a small gas fireplace with a large couch in front of it, but beware, dont plan to "cozy up by the fire" because the couch was very dusty and not very comfortable and the... More

Have stayed at 1896 for many years now, our first visit being in the mid 90's, and we have NEVER been disappointed! Just a wonderful getaway anytime of the year...the surroundings are perfect, and the rooms Brookside are extremely cozy.
