Upon arriving at the Inn we were greeted by the housekeeper who made sure that every possible want or need was at our fingertips. No detail was left undone and the room was reminiscent of an enchanting French country bedroom. The attached 1890 restaurant was absolutely delicious and we decided to eat there both nights of our stay. In the...

My husband and I stayed at the barnside suites room 206. It was beautiful and spacious. We had a delicious dinner at the 6 house pub. The service was great. Woke up each morning to a sit down candlelight breakfast. We have great memories and would love to go there again.

While visiting this Inn, we were delighted to find that it exceeded our expectations. We were met with a bottle of wine in our room and a room that was very nicely appointed. There was plenty of room to be comfortable and most of all, it was immaculate. What impressed me the most is that there was no detail that...

We had a wonderful time. We were greeted so warmly when we arrived in the main office, it felt like home right away. The room was very cozy, plenty of room. Able to relax with a bath and wrap in a robe with slippers provided in the suite. They even put a candle and bath salts in the bathroom. There...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
