Just finished a 4 week cross country trip, using only B&B's and Inns. (The only way to travel!) 1896 House, and room 202 was at the top of our favorites list. The innkeepers thought of every possible need a traveler could have. And it was so beautifully decorated as well. The bed was as comfortable as you could ever hope... More

We had a lovely overnight in one of the Barnside Suites. It was spacious, comfortable and remarkably well-priced, especially given summer in the Berkshires. Don't miss the delicious breakfast, either.

We stayed at the 1896 House for a three day ski trip and to exchange wedding vows in Bennington. The attention to detail at every level was wonderful, and the staff made our wedding getaway very special. Thank you 1896 House!!

This place is over-the-top wonderful! We will definitely return. We had a Living Social deal that gave us the opportunity to book a luxury suite at a great price. The suite had a king-sized-bed, gas fireplace, and a 2 person Jacuzzi tub. It was soooooo romantic. We also had dinner at their restaurant (also included with the Social Living deal... More
