Extra clean. Warm, comfortable bed. Beautiful job restoring this home. We had a fun time! The breakfast was very good. This is a bed and breakfast, not a hotel. No TV, no air conditioner. They have a closet of games to play. Just old time fun!

River Bend was originally built in the 1780s and has been lovingly restored by David and Judy. You stay in a Colonial New England farm house with open fireplaces, wooden walls, floors and ceilings together with furniture and artefacts collected over the years. The rooms do not have en-suite bathrooms but this isn't really a drawback. Breakfast is amazing with... More

David and Judy Loomis are accomplished innkeepers in this beautiful small gem in the Berkshires. River Bend Farm is a return to the past but with updated comforts. The congeniality of the hosts AND the guests each time we've returned over the past three decades underscores how a "place" can effect a "mood". The period furniture and decor throughout is... More

Entering the River Bend Farm is a walk back in time. It's an authentic colonial home full of interesting antiques. Just like house museums throughout New England – but one you can settle into for the night! So glad we discovered it. River Bend Farm is a special place, lovingly maintained and thoughtfully managed. Just a really memorable experience. Some... More

This historical home of the founder of Williamstown has history, feels like we are back to the tavern it once was with its original décor--the beauty of its well kept property and the ambience of its owners Judy and David. The guests are from all places in the US and the world, all seem so bright (many have children either... More

I first stumbled onto River Bend Farm with some colleagues, who found it for a trip up to the Williamstown Theater Festival, in 1987, to see Nathan Lane in John Guare's "Moon Over Miami". Meticulously maintained by Dave and Judy Loomis, this historically correct Inn never lets me down. Twenty nine years later a trip to see Marisa Tomei in... More

My husband and I had the good fortune to stay at River Bend Farm. If you are into history this place is like a museum and you get to stay in it!

We had a wonderful stay at the RBF. Dave and Judy have meticulously restored this 1770 home. Amazing fireplaces in most rooms, very comfortable. Nice people and a good breakfast, wish we stayed longer. A real treat. Mike and Janice W.

My daughter and I spent the night at River Bend Farm when we attended an exhibit at the Clark Museum. The charm and authenticity of this 1770 tavern made the trip all the better.
