My husband and I enjoyed a special getaway to celebrate my birthday. The room was beautiful and comfortable. Nice for hanging out in front of the fireplace when you need a break. Dinner at the '6 Pub was good and plentiful. Try the Mussels Brussels and the artichoke salad. Location great-minutes from Williamstown and the Clark museum, 25 minutes from... More

Thank you so much for such a nice review! I just wanted to say that our Brookside rooms all have real wood paneling, and often people mistake the smell for mustiness. It really is just a wood smell that some people love. "Brookside" is far from the brook and has no mold or mildew . It really is the MOST... More

My nusband and I wanted to get away for a couple of days to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We could not have chosen a better place. The room (suite 205) in the Barnside was so beautiful and dare I say, romantic. The suite was very clean and inviting. The gas fireplace in the room added warmth to an already cozy... More

We stayed two nights in one of the 1986 House Inn's Barnside suites and our time there was fabulous! The room was a perfect combination of roomy and cozy and the fireplace, dimmer switches on all lights, and two-person Jacuzzi tub made for a wonderful romantic weekend. It was very clean and well-kept and really felt like no expense was... More

I arranged four suites for family members coming down to celebrate a big birthday for my father. Each room was amazing. We were in suites 201, 202, 205 and 206. I personally was in 201 which seemed to be the most expansive with a small kitchen area although 205 and 206 have higher ceilings. I felt it was luxurious and... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at the Barnside Inn. It was a gift from our very dear friends for our anniversary and we can't say enough about how great it was. Very friendly atmosphere! Our room was beautiful, clean, inviting and it more than we could ask for. Our dinner at the restaurant was perfect. The... More

We arrived after driving by some beautiful views and foliage to a lovely place with equally lovely views. The Barnside suite we stayed in was even larger than we expected. As soon as we walked through the door we started to relax. The fireplace was the icing on the cake and used often throughout the weekend. No detail was missed... More

The 1896 House in Williamstown MA should be your next destination! The suites are well thought out; the website does not do them justice! This is one of the most luxurious accommodations I have ever enjoyed in this area. The owner Sue's attention to detail is remarkable; be it the suite; the relaxing covered porch outside your door or the... More
