The Guest House at Field Farm is a modern B&B with 6 rooms. We stayed for 3 nights (mid week) in the South Room which has a beautiful view of Mt Greylock. The grounds are lovely and well maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. As the former owner was an avid art collector there is plenty of art and sculptures throughout the house and on the grounds. We were greeted warmly by Ole, the Inn Keeper, who was always available to talk about the history of the house and the surrounding area. Homemade cookies (in individual bags) are left out everyday on the communal coffee/tea island off the kitchen and we enjoyed them in the living room sitting area which overlooked the pond. There is plenty to see and do in the area and don't forget the well marked trails on the property. Breakfasts were simple but delicious. The light blueberry pancakes were a hit and we were even given the recipe upon request. The South Room has an extra sitting area off the bedroom and it was nice to have some extra space. The bed was very comfortable but if you like flatter pillows, bring your own! It was very relaxing after a long day of hiking and biking and we would absolutely return.

During these hard COVID days, what a refreshing pleasure to wake up to a new and breathtaking views (windows on two sides of the room, I love that!) of the mountains and fields and ponds and how fun to be ensconced in mid-century modern surrounds without fluffy, faux-colonial fabrics. If you are a modern architecture fanatic like me, the guest house is a treat, but the even bigger delight is the Folly. Ask if you can see it. It is a three-bedroom house on the same property, built in the 60's (later than the guest house) and it will knock your socks off with its innovative design that completely leaves your standard concept of a house in the dust. The inn is quiet, breakfasts are lovely (cookies always available during the day in the living/ding room), and for dinner one can get take-out from nearby restaurants and eat in the inn's dining room (rarely is anyone else there, and the tables are spread far apart.) We stayed in the Greylock room, a little more expensive than the others but it has a great big deck and worth the splurge. You will come home feeling refreshed without the sense that you have exposed yourself to COVID. Enjoy.

I stayed 4 nights in October 2020, during COVID times. It felt very safe. Very quiet, restful, wonderful views. All the staff, and particularly Ole, the innkeeper, were kind, helpful, and wonderful. Waking in the morning to beautiful views, hiking around the property in the golden October light, breakfast even in the pandemic; the quiet, the views of the woods and the mountains and the pond (which has actual beavers living in it). it was glorious. I stayed in both the Greylock room and the East room--both with amazing views and porches. From the Greylock room, you don't hear anything, but from the East room, you can hear Greylock's shower and bathroom so it's not *quite* as quiet. But I would (and will) absolutely stay here again. Convenient to Williamstown, Mt Greylock, and North Adams. It was great. Breakfasts were delicious and filling. Cookies in the afternoon, and coffee in your room if you want it. No TV, but well-functioning internet, if you need it.

Thank you for seeking out the Guesthouse. we are happy you felt safe staying here; we hear similar comments from many guests who appreciate the privacy they can enjoy in the house, on the patios and on our 315 acres.. Of course we would love to still have the "fluff" in the rooms, the magazines and decorative items displayed., but for now, we try to make the best of it. We hope you will return soon.

Spent two nights there in the midst of the pandemic and felt safe and unexposed. Decor is interesting, the setting is wonderful, the breakfasts great. Appreciated the lack of TV. The pool was closed due to the virus (actually looked like it had been closed for a couple of years) but the grounds were open for walking.

As Trustees members, we had been here to walk several times. We admired the two historic houses but never stayed. We decided to stay three nights up to New Year's day when the Guest House closes for Winter. A great choice. The last two nights, we were the only guests and had the house to ourselves. The weather was a bit freezing rain/snow showers, but we were able to walk the North Trail with no difficulty once it stopped. We own a 1950 house (architecturally an Arts and Crafts, but not in the same league) but could relate to many of the fixtures and details. This is a gem. The hosts were exceptional with caring advice and friendly help. Breakfasts were complete and varied every day. We had a great stay. We expect to be back.

Spent two nights at this wonderful spot in early September. The house is lovely and very comfortable. The staff are wonderful. The grounds are absolutely beautiful - the greens and golds (of the wildflowers) were amazing. If you are visiting the area (Clark Art Institute, Mass MOCA, etc.) this is an excellent place to stay.

What an escape from daily life! We stayed at the Guest House while visiting the Clark Museum. This is the place to go if you want a silent and peaceful atmosphere, located in a picturesque and beautiful surroundings, in an architectural gem from the middle of the 20th century. The caretaker, Ole, is charming and full of interesting information about the house and its original owners, the even more interesting guest house, the property, and more. All you have to do is ask. You are staying in a piece of America history. Enjoy the experience for what it is and be sure to check out the grounds. Made us want to see more of the Trust properties and definitely return if we are back in the area.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. The Guesthouse is ,one of very few, truly mid-century-modern, B&B's in the US; we are fortunate to have a house full of original m-c-m furniture from the original owners. Set in the middle of 316 acres, it is quiet and peaceful... We look forward to your return.

This is a 1950's architectural gem maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. It has beautiful artwork inside and out, complemented by stunning views of Mt. Greylock. Breaksfasts are deliciously varied and served by delightful staff. Nice touches are the availability of cold bottled water freshly baked cookies throughout the day. The grounds are extensive with many walking trails that boarder ponds and pass though fields and woodlands. I counted 45 species of birds during three 1-2 hour walks. 10 minutes from Williamstown, a little more than 15 from North Adams, and about 45 minutes from Tanglewood. I will return and keep returning.

This inn is about as nice as it gets. Clean, stylish (in a 1950s way) and well-run (the staff is great but not overbearing), it's set in a gorgeous and quiet location off Route 7. If you want a mental break from the city or suburbs, you'll feel it here sooner than elsewhere. It's so tranquil that you shed your stress and feel far away faster than other places. It encourages a meditative frame of mind. OK, why not five stars then? Two reasons. First, I think it's a bit overpriced. That might be a little harsh -- the revenue supports the non-profit Trustees of Reservations (I presume). But the management knows who stays here. The day we arrived, the cars in the parking lot were all Mercedes, Audis, BMWs and one Volvo station wagon, The guest book said folks were from NYC, Wellesley, MA and Newton, MA. IOW, the management is pricing to the clientele. Second, I don't like minimum stays. This also feels like revenue maximization. All in all, among the nicest inns I've stayed in.

Thank you for your review and comments; It is very valuable for us to hear the "truth". Yes, revenues support the high expenses of maintaining a 1940's property on 315 acres. I do think our pricing, and minimum stay requirements on weekends and Holidays, are in line with other inns in the area. We appreciate you staying at the Guesthouse and hope you will visit again,

This is the perfect destination for lovers of art, nature and mid-century design. Built by the Bloedel's in 1948, the house is both a beautiful Bauhaus-style home and a showcase of mid-century furnishing and original artwork. Every room has a breathtaking view of the surrounding high meadows and mountains. Innkeeper Ole and Robin and Julie do everything to make your visit a delight--providing a delicious breakfast, fresh-baked cookies in the afternoon, and whatever information you might need to enjoy the surrounding area. The grounds include large landscaped gardens that are also a sculpture park and nature trails past a pond, and through woodlands and old apple orchards. The location is extremely convenient--only minutes away from the Clark Art Institute and the Williams College Museum of Art and close to both roads that will take you to the top of Mount Greylock. All guests have access to a guest refrigerator which can be stocked with artisanal cheeses and other goodies by taking a short walk up the street to Cricket Creek Farm. There are no televisions at Field Farm--helping make this a true vacation in my opinion! If you are looking for a truly unique and special place to recharge your batteries or to mark a special event (great anniversary get away!) this is the perfect place to spend a weekend.
