Service, accommodations, and food were beyond expectations! Our suite provided everything we could possibly need and then more. This place is lovingly cared for and they extend that to there visitors too.

I can't wait to book my next stay here! Clean, relaxing and truly a getaway. I highly recommend booking in winter or fall because the scenary is beautiful. Also Jiminy Peak Ski resort is a really close ride!!!

Our First Visit

We had a wonderful and relaxing visit. We had one of the suites and visited the pub. It is a great place from which to sample the many attractions of the Berkshires. We hope to return to the 1896 House in the near future and recommend it highly. Tom and Mary, Boston

Great.. down to the last detail!

The Barnside Suites offered a clean, relaxing, and romantic environment at such a great price! Hear the sounds of the nearby stream and enjoy the detailed care of the room - dimmer switches, flowers on the bed, nice toiletries with bath salts for the jacuzzi, etc. We had a great time staying here for NYE and hope to return in the Spring.

wonderful cosy relaxed place to stay

Attended our Niece's wedding Columbus Day Weekend and if you need to spend time in the Berkshires this is the place to stay - it was beautiful and the room/suite was excellent.

If you're staying in the pondside rooms (as we did) don't miss the extraordinary food at the Inn right across the street - delicious!

Motel et Hotel typique , excellent décor historique avec beaucoup de végétation , petit ruisseau avec des canards . Nourriture très bonne surtout quelle bonne idée d'avoir un déjeuner chaud offert avec le prix de la chambre.

Lovely setting and fantastic breakfast!

We first discovered the 1896 House in summer 2010 for our family trip to the Solid Sound Festival in North Adams and it did not disappoint. When Solid Sound 2011 was announced, we didn't hesitate to book 2 rooms for the 3-day event. The hot buffet breakfast is wonderful: it includes real food like eggs and bacon, not just pastry and the usual continental breakfast offerings at many hotels. The pool is very nice, too. We'll be back!
