Fodor's Expert Review Guest House at Field Farm

554 Sloan Rd., Willamstown, MA 02167, USA See on Map

Built in 1948 with a Bauhaus design aesthetic, the guesthouse (set back on a country on more than 300 acres of lush fields) has six rooms and an impressive art collection. Three rooms have private decks, two have working fireplaces, and the entire space feels like a modern art and furniture museum. It's open to guests from April 1 to January 1.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Children must be over the age of 12 to stay at the guest house.


There are three queen rooms and three kings, all outfitted in pristine mid-century furnishings. The Master and East rooms offer the best view of Mt. Greylock from large picture windows and decks.


The original tile, in hues of pink, blue or yellow depending on the room, is meticulously clean and still shines. Lather up with high-end Ecru beauty products.


Take a seat in the massive living room furnished with a Noguchi coffee table, Kagan sofas, and a reproduction Eames chair.

Grab a book from the hundreds available throughout the house and spend a few hours reading and lounging.


The pool, set amid lush fields, is open seasonally.


The guesthouse serves a full B&B-style breakfast in the original kitchen.


There's no bar at the B&B, but the owners are happy to chill a bottle of wine for you in the fridge which can be enjoyed in the lounge area or on your private terrace.


Getting Around

Located on 315 acres of fields, woods, and wetlands, a car is needed to access the guest house and nearby attractions.


Mezze (9-minute drive) is an oasis of small plates, perfect for sharing, while inventive craft cocktails feature local spirits. Guest overwhelming flock to Gramercy Bistro (20-minute drive) at Mass MoCA for updated American and French classics, creative drinks, and Sunday brunch. For Mediterranean and Turkish flavors, head to Pera (12-minute drive) for lunch or dinner. The menu is full of vegetarian options, too.


Purple Pub (12-minute drive) offers pints and late night bar eats in a laid-back setting. The '6 House Pub, (10-minute drive) set in a rehabbed barn, cooks up pub favorites alongside an ample beer, wine, and mixed drink menu. In the summer opt for the outside patio.


The architectural gem will have you feeling like a character on Mad Men. The original owners, Lawrence and Eleanor Bloedel, were avid art collectors and guests have access to much of that collection on display throughout the house. Don't forget to bring your hiking boots to traverse several miles of walking trails. When you arrive back at the house you'll be treated with cookies or other homemade snacks.
