My husband and I just returned from our weekend getaway at the 1896 house. We had a fantastic time and hope to return in the future. I booked our trip through a livingsocial deal. The room was wonderful, very clean and spacious. We stayed in room 202, the turn of the century suite. The fireplace was great and very relaxing,... More

My wife and I just returned from a 4 day stay at "1896" - one of the top 2 B & B's we have stayed in. From the room to the staff everything was top notch. The room was beautiful and very clean - Jacuzzi perfect at the end of a busy day. Breakfast was excellent - like having a... More

My husband and I do a short getaway right after the Holidays, we got a great deal on living social. We had suite 205. We enjoyed the hot tub, cozy king size bed and the quiet. We ate dinner at the pub, great food and service. The front desk lady was very nice she booked a massage for the both... More

My significant other and I are both in our twenties and had never stayed in a suite before since that had always been cost prohibitive. In the past we had enjoyed bed and breakfasts, so when I saw that the Barnside Inn had extremely affordable suites and also provided a fresh cooked breakfast, I could not have been more excited....

We once had a Package called the title of your review! Yes, our Suites are not meant for cooking in. Only Suite 201 (yours) is equipped for reheating leftovers, or having a quick bite. We do however have a 3 Room Apartment with a full kitchen & standard appliances if that is what a guest prefers. Thanks for such a... More

The 1896 House was the perfect choice for our cozy winter getaway. My girlfriend and I were looking for a New England destination to escape to over winter break. We chose the 1896 House because of its location (we were driving up from New York City), proximity to ski resorts, and the great deal available through LivingSocial. Upon arrival, a... More

Yes, it was frigid outside, and we are all glad that you could get cozy! Although we do not have microwaves in most of the Suites, there is one available at Brookside near the office for guests' use. Thank you for painting such an inviting picture of your stay! I think you could write a wonderful novel of your own... More

I have read some of the other reviews and have to say some people are never satisfied...We love our time at the Barnside suites. This is our second visit and we will go back. It snowed lightly when we were there and is was so lovely and serene. The rooms are comfortable and we especially loved our fireplace which kept... More

Thank you so much for being so appreciative! It is truly important for us to hear as 98% of the time things are great, but no one is perfect (though we try, LOL!)! We are glad you enjoyed the breakfast and Delores. She is a lot of fun as well as a good cook! Thanks again! More

We stayed for 2 nights in a December snow storm in the Victorian Luxury Suite. The room smelled very musty, had to go buy some fabreze! We turned on the gas fireplace because it was very cold outside ( 12 degrees) and the flame was so puny, you could hardly feel the heat. The fake tree in the room was... More

Lo and behold, this review sure caught us by surprise as we pride ourselves on our immaculate rooms! As one can ascertain by previous reviews, this is an isolated incident. The duvet cover on the foot of the bed had been brought to us for replacement by this guest. The previous guest had spilled coffee with cream (?) on it... More

We stayed here for one night primarily based on the rave reviews and opted for one of the Barnside suites, again based on strong reviews. The location is pretty - set by a serene brook. The suite was $199/night. Instead of feeling like a nicely appointed B&B, it has the general look and feel of an upgraded motel room that... More

Of course we are sorry that this guest was disappointed. All of our suites have different decor so perhaps he would have appreciated another suite more, as decor is a matter of taste. The suites were built in the year 2000, in the space that housed our former banquet room, and they are decorated in 6 different historical periods. They... More

What a pleasant surprise to be met my our host and two Airedales, and then check into our lovely room. Our suite had a living room area, a dining table and kitchenette, a wonderful bed with excellent reading lights, and a super bathroom. We had dinner at the Pub and enjoyed it very much.

A friend and I discovered 1896 House about 20 years ago, and it has become a favorite spot for retreat ever since. The Berkshire area is beautiful and close to home, so less time spent in the car and more time spent admiring the natural beauty in a relaxing, comfortable, and magnificent environment with much to experience. The grounds at... More
