Proud recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award, the Wedding Wire Bride’s Choice Award, and the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, The Orchards has firmly established itself as Williamstown’s premier hotel.
The Orchards’ physical and spiritual focal point is its courtyard – a lush New England setting, complete with a well landscaped pond & flower garden. You’re welcome to dine al fresco here in the warmer months, surrounded by purple irises (a fitting tribute to nearby Williams College’s school colors).
Head inside the hotel, and feel instantly at home in our comfortable Living Room. Spacious yet intimate, it features English stle furnishings, an antique steinway piano and classic artwork, which you are welcome to browse. On chilly days, you’ll discover a crackling fire burning in the Living Room’s fireplace, with its distinctive eighteenth century carved oak mantel.
You may find it difficult to leave the comfort of your accommodations, once you’ve settled in; we pride ourselves on our thoughtful amenities, which include pillow-top beds, oversized, marble-accented bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi. It would be a shame, however, to miss out on the wealth of attractions and amenities that lie just beyond our hotel doorstep. Williamstown is home to some of the world’s
most prestigious museums, including the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Williams College Museum of Art. Plan your trip to coincide with the renowned Williamstown Theatre Festival (whose alumni include stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Bradley Cooper) or the Williamstown Film Festival, where you’ll enjoy the best in classic and independent films. Golfers can hit the links at the prestigous Taconic Golf Course or Waubeeka Golf Course. Don’t forget to pick up a memento at one of the Spring Street galleries or retail shops.
In the winter months enjoy outstanding New England skiing at Jiminy Peak or take advantage of the many cross country ski venues of the Berkshires. Jiminy peak also provides great summer fun at its Mountain Adventure Park.
Regardless of your specific vacation activities, make plans to sample Berkshire-grown cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Chris Bonnivier at The Orchards’ award-winning Gala Steakhouse & Bistro.
The staff at The Orchards Hotel is thrilled to welcome you to our corner of the Berkshires. If there’s anything you would like to see or experience while you’re our guest, just ask.
