We made a 3-night reservation on the strength of internet information and a phone call to the property from our home in Pennsylvania. We chose Room 206 among the Barnside suites and had no regrets. It was spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The porch was attractive and provided a covered walk to the terrific, made-to-order breakfasts prepared by Dolores, our... More

This was my third stay at the 1896 House-Barnside with my husband. It is our place to go for a one night getaway from the small children in our lives. ;) It is a perfect motorcycle ride from Metrowest Boston, where we live. We love 1896 House for so many reasons. This time we were able to get a room... More

We stayed in one of the Barnside Suites for a weekend (Fri/Sat night). The room was absolutely beautiful, and the extra "add-on packages" made our weekend trip extra special. The candlelight breakfast far exceeded our expectations. We wished we could have stayed an extra day and we're already talking about "when" we go back. The staff (particularly the owners) were...

Great single day stay at Barnside in Room 206. Large spacious room with period pieces and a fireplace. As it was summer, thte A/C was much more important, and worked flawlessly, but should be toasty warm in the winter. Very charming place.. Terrific bathroom, two person jacuzzi. Clean as could be. To top it off a hot breakfast included cooked... More

We enjoyed our time at both the Theatre Festival, and our stay at the 1896 House. Even after an issue with the A/C was identified, the professional staff addressed our needs and made sure we were extremely comfortable. Bravo! The breakfast was very good and the server was kind each and every morning.

We arrived to what looked like a quaint little hotel. When we asked for a king size bed we were informed that the only one left was a suite in the building next door. We opened the door to room #5 and we immediately fell in love. The decor was a Victorian style with a canopy bed and chandelier type... More

We spent 2 nights at the Barnside Inn which is part of the 1896 Inn complex. It's more upscale than the motel sections, and more expensive. We were celebrating a special occasion and were there with friends, so it worked fine for us. Our unit for two people was #201, and apart from a slight musty smell was wonderful- the... More

I really enjoyed the 1896 House and Barnside Inn. Loved the antique feeling of the room. Very romantic and charming. The only problem I did have was the breakfast. Not alot to choose from. Wish they had eggs, bacon, sausage and toast to pick from.
