This is the second year we have stayed at Journey's End Lodge with another couple. Alan and Carlos were very gracious even when we unwittingly checked in early. The breakfasts were terrific and the hosts were very accommodating with the special diet of one of our traveling companions. We look forward to returning next year and can't recommend this place...

My husband and I wanted to be close to the college for reunion activities and Journey's End fit the bill perfectly. Our room was welcoming, the bed was comfortable, and the common areas were spacious. The best part, though, were the breakfasts! The food was delicious and we enjoyed meeting the other guests around the table. We have already told...

When building Journey's End Lodge we purposefully chose our site, located within one mile of Spring Street, the center of the Williams College Campus. Recently we had guests who spent the day driving to get here; they very much enjoyed their walk into town for dinner. Other guests have chosen to walk to Williams and its various events, including the...

We were in town for a collegiate swim meet and this B&B was a perfect retreat after long days at the Williams pool. Beautifully decorated and comfortable, your hosts could not be more gracious. Each morning, the breakfasts were simple amazing! This would be a wonderful "base camp" for exploring the surrounding area any time of the year.
