My boyfriend and I spent a beautiful night at Field Farm. We were in the South Room (the innkeeper kindly upgraded us from the less-expensive room we had booked, since this one was available). The view over the field and mountain was absolutely stunning, the best was comfy, and the room was spacious. There was also a delicious breakfast and...

We met old friends here. It is a perfect place. Out every window is a beautiful view. In every room of the Guest House there are unique period pieces of furniture, an array of current magazines, and walls lined with bookshelves filled with older books. Ole, the Innkeeper, is a charming man - the ideal keeper of such a charming...

Thank you! When the Guesthouse was first built (as a private residence) in 1948, the owners wanted to take full advantage of the peaceful setting in the middle of 315 acres. The majority of the period original furniture by the best designers came with the house, which makes it even more special.

The Guest House is more like a retreat house, quiet, tranquil, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills. I originally chose this sight because I like Mid-Century design and I wanted to escape the colonial decor of the other Berkshire B&Bs. I am happy to write that my choice delivered more than the decor. Ole, the innkeeper, was very welcoming and just...

We often escape to the bucolic Berkshires for a few days of R&R - cultural and natural highlights include the Berkshire Mountains themselves, endless rolling hills, fine dining, museums, Tanglewood, hiking and on and on. One place we return to for the ultimate in peace and quiet and beautiful vistas is Field Farm B&B. The atmosphere is grown up -...

Given the small number of rooms and a devoted following it is not easy to get reservations at this unique B&B so book as early as possible. It is owned by the (non profit) Trustees of the Reservations and in fact you get a nice discount on the room rate if you are a member. The property is over 120...

My wife and I have visited twice and plan to return. Field Farm is located about 10 minutes outside Williamstown MA on beautiful, (read: gorgeous) grounds that include open grassy fields, forest and rolling hills with breath taking views of the Berkshires. This is a perfect place to ‘get away’ from the day to day stresses and relax amid art,...

We came here to celebrate a special occasion and it was just perfect. The house is filled with art and great mid-century design, and the grounds dotted with sculpture and chairs sited to take in every (gorgeous) view. There's no TV (hurray) but there is Wifi so we could check in w/ whatever we needed to. We enjoyed the hiking...

Wasn't sure what to expect since I had not been to Williamstown in years. The Guest House exceeded my expectations! We were welcomed with tea and freshly baked cookies! There was beautiful artwork throughout the house as well as on the property. The rooms were immaculate. Our host,Robin, recommended a delicious restaurant for dinner and took great care of us....

Wonderfully simple, unpretentious and elegant. We enjoyed local cheese and charcuterie with a bottle of wine on our deck. The pool was perfectly refreshing after a pleasant walk on the paths that meander around the lake and woods. Close to Williams College, MASS MoCA and Mount Greylock, yet feels remote and relaxing. The innkeeper is very friendly and the breakfast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Featuring an unparalleled view of Mt. Greylock, Massachusetts' highest peak, the Guest House at Field Farm is a refreshing change from your usual bed & breakfast. Edwin Goodell, Jr. Designed the 1948 Bauhaus-inspired house for Lawrence and Eleanor Bloedel, avid modern art and furniture collectors of the time. Modern artwork adorns the interiors, and the surrounding landscaped gardens boast thirteen sculptures, including works by Richard M. Miller and Herbert Ferber. The house itself is almost a museum of modern furnishings, featuring reproduced Eileen Gray tables and George Nelson saucer pendant lamps in the Master bedroom, and a Noguchi coffee table, Kagan sofas, and a reproduction Eames chair in the living room. The Guest House is situated in the middle of Field Farm, 316 acres of conserved land with four miles of trails that can be enjoyed by foot or cross-country ski. This patchwork landscape features cropland, pastures, mixed forest, marshes, and a stream and pond. The Folly, a three-bedroom, pinwheel-shaped shingled guest cottage, designed in 1965 by noted modernist architect Ulrich Franzen, overlooks the pond and still contains furnishings designed by Franzen. ... more   less
