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...

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...

The Barnside rooms of this motel- a separate part of this motel-are charming. They are large and lavishly appointed, with a gas fireplace. Breakfast is an event, and a delightful one, with a small, private dining room for the Barnside guests. An excellent cook/waitress makes the breakfast delightful. Barnside is certainly a bit pricey, but well worth it. (The motel...

Very nice and comfortable room at barnside part of 1896 House. Room was super-large with a mix of antique furniture but all modern conveniences including jacuzzi and dd player. Located just south of Williamstown and near a pleasant hiking trail at Sheep Meadow. Only criticism was that tv's in room need upgrading to flat screen. Tasty homemade breakfast included.
