This is a lovely B&B with nice large rooms which include a king size bed, comfortable seating in front of a gas fireplace, and other tables and chairs. The dressing room has an extra sink, refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, and 2 luggage racks!! We booked 202, Turn of the Century Room, which is an accessible room with no stairs,... More

This property is in a lovely setting just outside Williamstown, where Williams College is. It's under new management since the winter. There are two parts to the property--the "luxury" suites and a section of more prosaic looking motel-type rooms. The luxury suites are cute, but not really in the luxury category. The room we had was very dark and the... More

My husband and I have come here twice and stayed in one of the luxury suites. The rooms are so beautiful, comfortable and private. We had breakfast made for us each morning and I have to say, they were spectacular! We also ate at the pub each night and the food was really good. The service was great. My husband... More

For a first stay in Massachusetts, and in the beautiful Berkshires, there couldn’t have been a better place to stay than The 1896 House! Before my trip I was so consumed with how absolutely freezing it was going to be outside, but as soon as I arrived, every negative thought went away. While checking in, I couldn’t have felt more...

For our second stay at the 1896 House, we stayed in one of the "luxury suites" at the Barnside Inn. Our room was beautiful - sitting area, fireplace, king-size bed, Jacuzzi tub, all beautifully furnished and decorated. Breakfast and dinner were included in our package, and again we were not disappointed. The food in the pub is delicious! We love... More

We spent an overnight at the 1896 Barnside. It was a cold winter day. The rooms are clean and have everything in them you'd like for a warm cozy weekend. We were served an excellent breakfast as part of our package weekend deal. The food was great and it was a weekend we will remember. The staff are helpful and... More

My wife and I stayed here over Thanksgiving 2014 for three nights and had a wonderful time amidst a huge snowstorm which created a winter wonderland. Our room was a large suite with king bed, fireplace, comfortable couch, and great bathroom with huge Jacuzzi tub. It was a large room and gave us the space to spread out and relax,... More

We would gladly come again, room was a bit moldy smelling but overall everything was good. May come back in the summer to see what it's like. Everyone that worked there was pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was very good.
