This hotel has a lot of history and character, has their own cat, the food was delicious, and staff was great. We loved sitting out on the veranda with our drinks in the evening. Would definitely stay again.
We were here in the off-season, and so it wasn't that busy and our hall was quiet -- being an old building with creaky floors and thin walls, I could see that it might be noisier when it is a busier season.

Very quiet location (we were in "Stevens House," across the road, behind some private homes), though in some ways too quiet; it felt a bit deserted and isolated. The bed was very comfortable, the wifi was good and reliable, windows opened for fresh air.
Felt dowdy for 3 stars; room did not feel secure, and no services in this "cottage"; everything was inaccessible, across a busy road. No safe in room, flimsy lock on door, deserted building.

This is clearly an old "inn" aiming for the colonial feel, and generally achieving it. The ambiance, though, was a little too old-timey, with old twist button locks on the room door, which anyone could open by lust leaning hard, or by sliding a credit card into the gaping space between door and jamb. The lobby was furnished with the requisite chintz, overstuffed furniture and "colonial" knick-knacks, with a heavy (too heavy) overlay of Yankee-candle that couldn't disguise an undercurrent sour smell that couldn't be anything but a sewage smell. Staying in the "Stevens House" was quaint, but basically meant that we were too far away (about 500 feet, across main street and through the main building) to use any of the amenities, from the health club to the outdoor heated swimming pool (it was January, but 40-50 degrees outside, and I've swum in salt water in December, so I might have swum here, if it had been feasible). Maybe the other rooms are nicer, and we got the low-end because we booked on Priceline, but it's hard to see how this rates more than a 2-star rating. Some things were good: nice to have a blu-ray player in the room (but were there dvd's to borrow? didn't find any information about that in the hotel brochures. who brings their own on a trip?) and the TV was big and clear, if incongruous among the 18th Century decor. Why were there amateurish paintings in the room? One a supine nude woman and the other an unframed (!) painting of a cellist. Anyway - not a bad place to stay, but not three stars. Right "downtown" in Stockbridge, but there's just the two streets... more

The rooms were large with a nice bathroom.
Disappointed we were not in the main hotel but instead in a satelitte B&B with no staff present.

Right at the best place to experience the annual Norman Rockwell's Christmas on Main St
Seating in the Tavern - has too many people walking thru it

Loved the food!

the restaurant - the meals were excellent
We were in a guest house. I would have preferred being in the main building. We followed the instruction for ordering room service but our order was never picked up.

This is an authentic, and I mean authentic, hotel from a bygone era.
We loved it. Nothing wrong at all

Most hotels that were the classic mainstays of their time and too good to be disposed of, have been purchased and 'restored' by major chains, and perhaps that was the only way to save them. The exterior may be the same, but the interiors typically are the first to go. Here, you won't find a Jacuzzi in the bedroom, plaster walls and original woodwork remain, the floors the same ones dignitaries from times past have walked on and have not been replaced with modern prefinished wood flooring. Not that those things are bad, I have them in my own home, but it is a rare experience to actually stay in what is almost a living museum. Go for the experience. more

The lobby was so cozy, dinner in the main dining room was delicious and the small tavern off the dining room was so cozy....
It couldn't be helped =- but we are on the 2nd fl. and the guests right above us were very loud and the wood floors just exaggerated the noise.

We didn't know that you can eat in the tavern - we also werent' told that there there was the tavern off the dining room or about the bar/rest. downstairs - we didnt' know about tht until we were going up to bed.
