About

The charm of the Victorian era with the luxury of the 21st Century. This Quiet, cozy bed & breakfast, nestled in a lovely, tree-lined setting is a short walk to the Clark Art Institute, Williams College, Williamstown - Theatre Festival(WTF), Film Festival or Jazz Festival, shopping and dining. The House on Main Street', known as 'The Victorian Tourist & Antique House' in a by-gone era, has been enjoyed by such guests as President Woodrow Wilson, Johnny Carson, Suzanne Vega and other notable personalities. Today, there are six spacious, airy bedrooms for you to enjoy. You can take in the early morning birdsong on the front porch, spend your afternoon reading on the screened porch, visit with the Cats in their habitat, then come in to the parlor to meet with other guests, watch your favorite television program or dispel a chill by the fireplace in the evening. We have TWO CATS on the premises (Bridi and Angus). While they are not allowed in the guest rooms, they do find themselves in the common areas and are happy to say hello. They are low-dander, short-hair cats but those with acute dander allergies may be affected.

Labor Day in the Berkshires

3.6 on September 14, 2014

We arrived to a note on the door and so we found our room. It was a bit weird that the house was empty and unlocked but apparently it is okay; we left our stuff in the rooms and never felt unsafe, but it is a unique feeling! The room (Rose room, second floor) was charming, our bath just next door was nice. My only complaint was the situation of the angle of the ceiling; I turned my head after looking out the window on my side (right) of the bed and whomped my head nicely! Breakfast time was nice to meet the other guests. I found the 2 breakfasts (pecan pancakes one morning, frittata the second) a bit on the dry side, but perhaps because the host and hostess are gluten free and vegan? Not sure but the spicy bean salad on the second morning with the frittata was tasty! All in all, a pleasant experience. Tim the host was very congenial.


An Outstanding Bed and Breakfast!

The House on Main Street it a fantastic place to stay. It is within walking distance of everything in Williamstown. Breakfasts are served at a big table and it is fun to meet all the other guests. The rooms are very comfortable. Timothy and Donna are gracious hosts. It is definitely the best place to stay in the Berkshires!


short but great stay

A Williamstown Gem

This lovely Inn is within walking distance to the Clark Museum, Williams College and the Williamstown Theater Festival. The King Bedroom with the private bath is very comfortable and downstairs there is a front and back porch where you can read and relax. The freshly made buckwheat, blueberry pancakes were delicious.

The location is wonderful and the innkeepers were extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend it. Because they had a number of guests, it was a little difficult to get bathroom time in the a.m., so you will want to plan accordingly.


Good location

Our stay in Williamstown MA

5 on July 05, 2014

Our host was very friendly and accommodating to our family's needs. Our breakfast of pancakes was particularly delicious. The location is fantastic and quiet and very green. I love the history of the building and the information about the history of the town was available on site.
