“Colonial Experience - Highlight of our New England Trip!!”
Reviewed 19 July 2010

We were just looking for a "New England B and B" and accidently found River Bend Farm. What an incredible experience. This is a four room fully restored 1770 Tavern on the old Mohawk Trail. The owners, Mr and Mrs Loomis, have personally restored every inch of this Tavern to its original condition. Original floors, walls, and more. Two of the rooms have had air conditioning added and the shared bathrooms are fully modern but are part of 1770 Colonial rooms. Each room has a plaque that explains how the room was used in 1770 and what was found during the restoration and other useful and interesting information. The breakfast consisted of farm grown and self baked goodies from the property. We have stayed at many, many B & B's and River Bend Farm is now our "best B and B experience". This B & B wouldn't be ideal for everyone. It isn't Victorian, has shared bathrooms, has a 1770 "rustic" feel that would be better to describe at "authentic". The town of Williamstown is relatively small but has excellent museums including The Clark which has Degas and Picasso and others. The museum at Williams College has a display of original American Revolution documents that rivals or beats those at The National Archives in DC and you can stand right in front of them without all those crowds. George Washington's signature is right there! The town was an excellent place to visit but The River Bend Farm was the highlight of our New England vacation!!

We stayed at the River Bend Inn during fall of last year. The foliage was beautiful and we went on several hikes nearby in the White Mountains. The food was fantastic - the breakfasts were incredible.

Delightful conversationalists and welcoming informal hosts, Dave and Judy ensured that we had a perfect stay. It took a bit of finding with the limited directions in the Lonely Planet guidebook, but we were so pleased that we persevered. Scrumptious home baked cakes, bread and preserves... lovely open log fire, and a relaxed atmosphere that went beautifully with the New England in the Fall feeling we'd learnt to enjoy. I would certainly recommend this as a quirky, different place to stay... it's not a luxury hotel, it's better....

If you're looking for a spa-like, modern, austere stay, don't try River Bend Farm. If you're looking for an authentic, comfortable, family-like experience though, this is the place for you. Nothing compares to staying in this restored 18th-century farmhouse...the furniture is beautiful, the beds are comfortable, and the people there (including Dave and Judy) are interesting. Visualize this: a handmade copper sink in the middle of the kitchen; collections of milk bottles and hurricane lamps in the downstairs bathroom; and rocking chairs in every room. Even though the bathrooms are shared and the floors are wonderfully creaky, we had a fantastic time at River Bend Farm and regret only having one night in town. To top it off, Dave and Judy make a delicious breakfast!

I have only the nicest things to say about this B&B! We found it accidentally, after our first B&B forgot about our reservation, but am so glad we did! Dave and Judy (the owners) were so sweet and accommodating--they welcomed us in for an impromptu evening, and even gave us a nice last-minute discount. Dave led us on a wonderful tour of the place, and let us choose our favorite room--we were in the Master bedroom. He politely showed us where extra blankets were stored, and gave us our privacy. The bathroom is down the hall, but it's not a problem at all. Our room didn't have a television, but it wasn't a big issue either--walking around this amazing historic building was enough evening entertainment! Each room has a little plaque with information about its history and the renovation process (Dave and Judy completed the 15-year total renovation of the building by themselves, I believe, and their work is impeccable).

Breakfast the next morning was great--fresh fruit, granola, homemade breads and preserves, yogurt, juice, and coffee. Dave and Judy were nice enough to prepare breakfast whenever we asked (which was early), and we all enjoyed a nice politics discussion in the morning. The food and room were great, and overall Dave and Judy are great owners--we highly, highly recommend the River Bend Farm B&B!
