The 1896 House Country Inn - Brookside & Pondside
Ranked #9 of 13 Hotels in Williamstown
Reviewed March 20, 2011

What a great experience! Owners are great and very anxious to be sure you're comfortable! We couldn't believe what a bargain it is, including a beautiful "full course" breakfast. The "6" Pub, on site, is a fun, friendly place for dinner. As an aside, not much doing in the town (Jiminy Peak for skiing is good, tho). The Clark museum, not far away, was delightful.

Superbly priced at $107. 12-15 minutes from Jiminy Peak. Friendly, low-key staff. Rooms are a step above typical motels. Breakfast is free and pretty broad in selection.
Fairly firm, comfortable beds.
The adjoining "Pub 6" is also quite good for dinner, has great tab beer selection. Make a reservation on weekends! We just got in at 5:45 pm before it became super crowded.
Very happy with the stay and will definitely come again.

We have been staying at the 1896 for the past 4 years and the reason is due to the consistency in hospitality, service, and cleanliness. The backdrop of the 1896 is tranquil, and the footbridge over Hemlock Brook to the 6 pub (Which has the best apricot bourban chicken wings in the world), adds to the beautiful scenary. The location to Jiminey Peak, Williams College and the Clark Museum is an ideal spot to enjoy the Berkshires

We stayed 3 nights. What a lovely little gem. It must be even nicer without snow on the ground. The only issue was that there is effectively no cell phone reception, but long distance phone calls from the room were easy and free to the visitor. Restaurant was great as well. Truly lovely place.

No complaints..the place is a bit outdated but not a problem. Everything is clean and the service is is quick and efficient. We will definitely go back! At the best part is the restaurant they have which has great service and food.

I spent a night here with my mother. We were in town to checkout the amazing local museums. Our room was perfect: cozy, clean, and warm. When it was time for dinner, we just walked down a beautiful path and over the foot bridge to the pub for a delicious meal. We had a gorgeous night's sleep and a full breakfast back at the pub the next morning. The experience was delightful! It would be fun for families and couples too.
