“Warm and Welcoming”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

So hospitable and accommodating! Delicious food for any diet... I am gluten free and was in heaven thanks to the amazing, creative baking of my hosts. I recommend this B & B to anyone going to the area!

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for one evening in a room that shared a bathroom with other rooms. Everything was fairly clean and the location was great.

The breakfast was not really anything special nor something that I would want to order again.

Overall, the experience was reasonable, but the atmosphere was that the owner was not enthusiastic about having or taking care of the guests.

August-2012
Timothy was a great host. Our room was cozy and peaceful. A pleasant surprise was the very healthy vegan frittata accompanied by fresh fruit and Cuban beans on 1 day and gluten free almond pancakes accompanied by grits and fresh fruit on our second day. The lavender Avalon products were soothing and a refreshing start for our hectic day. This B & B was close to Williams College. I would recommend this charming, Victorian house to anyone visiting Williamstown.

We stayed 2 nights during our conferences at Williams college. We had a short, pleasant walk to our venue. Our room was very clean, We had a king sized bed and pull out sofa, a/c, tv, and private bath. Overall we found the Inn to be cozy. The host was receptive to my roomates requests, very gracious. The food was fresh and quite good...just what one might expect from a new England B & B.

We arrived to find a very tired sign outside. The 'innkeeper' was not present although a note had been left for us and the door left open. We went into town and innkeeper was still not present on our return although he did come back later in the evening and introduced himself.

Breakfast is at a set time (8.30 am) which was OK for us but may not suit all and as previously stated by other reviewers you sit at a communal table . No choice other than Canteloupe melon and pancakes, which we had to wait a considerable time for.

No TV in room or coffee making facilities.

Overall we felt somewhat underwhelmed by this place and it simply wasn't very welcoming

A really sweet and cosy B&B 10 mins walk away from the centre of town. Clean, friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Mauve room which has a shared bathroom but which never seemed inconvenient. Breakfast was fantastic and all vegan and gluten free though you would never know it. overall a we were very impressed and would definitely return.

There was nothing terrible or wonderful about our one-night stay, but there were enough disappointing things that would make us hesitate to return.

The innkeeper is pleasant, although not quite as welcoming or "naturally" warm as some in his position. When we came back from dinner and found the landing in front of our room -- and then, once we opened the room door, the room itself -- reeking of oven chemicals, he responded quickly. He said he had burned a pizza in his kitchen, which was apparently below our room. (The smell reminded us more of the stench after three hours of auto-cleaning an oven -- chemicals.) Anyway, his solution was to air out/blow out (with a fan) our room rather than offer us (or even respond positively to our request for) another room. This was inconvenient (at 10:00 at night), and moving to another room would have been a better solution from our standpoint. In any case, his solution eventually worked.

The room was nice enough for a B and B, but not totally clean. Not filthy, but the floor needed a good sweeping.

The web site said the room had a private bath. Well, technically that was true. But it was in the hall. (The bathroom was large and didn't disappoint.)

Finally, reviewers praised the breakfasts, but we must have hit an off day. Breakfast was kind of rubbery, not-very-warm pancakes and out-of-season (tasteless) cantaloupe.

The innkeeper gave us advice on restaurants, which we appreciated.
