About the Property

Quiet 5 Bedroom, easy walk to everything. Close to Skiing, Snowshoeing, hiking!

This historic House On Main Street was known as the Victorian Tourist & Antique House in a by-gone era. It was originally constructed in the mid 1700's and was moved to this site, near where Fort Hoosac previously stood, around 1830. The house was visited by such famous personalities as President Woodrow Wilson, who enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner here in 1914. There were many additions and renovations before it was fully remodeled in 1986, taking great care to preserve the quality features of the house. Today there are six spacious, airy bedrooms for our guests to enjoy.

In our latest remodel, we have included a Pro-Style 6 Burner Gas Jenn-Air Range, new living room furniture custom made by Taylor King and high end Serta mattress sets form the iComfort, iSeries and Perfect Sleeper collections, even a 48' Flat Screen TV, a BluRay DVD player with free Netflix, Pandora, YouTube and other viewing and listening services.

Attractions you can walk to from the house: Williams College, Williams College Museum, Clark Art Institute (The Clark - museum), Williamstown Theatre Festival, Williamstown Film Festival, Images Cinema, Chapin Library of Rare Books & Manuscripts, Taconic Golf Club, Where'd you get that? Inc. (Great toy and game store), In Touch Day Spa, Water Street Grill

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Donna grew up in this magical, Brigadoon-like area and after many years of exploring the planet, landed here again in 2000 with her best gallivanting companion and husband, Timothy. Timothy started out his journey in the Akron area of Ohio before his time in Nebraska, Wisconsin and New York City. Donna and Timothy met in NYC where they both had thriving careers in the theater before escaping to the oxygen-filled hills of the Berkshires. Contact us directly to save the fee. 413-458-3031

Why the Owner Chose Williamstown, Williamstown, MA, USA:
This lovely home became a part of Donna and Timothy's life when Donna's parents bought it in 1991. Many wonderful memories of gatherings for family and friends, holidays and birthdays have been made in this house. We love to pass on that fun and loving energy to people from all over the world. There are also great amenities at this house including free, secure wifi.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in-love with this quiet home partly because it is walking distance to everything. Plus, the front and side porches are amazing. Not to mention the fact that the area and the house are steeped in rich history. Many years ago, Woodrow Wilson's daughter owned the house so President Wilson not only visited on many Holiday occasions, he also gave an impromptu speech to the towns-folk celebrating his election for a second term right from the side porch.
