  In beautiful rural Williamstown, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest lodging in our old family farmhouse - especially suited to any small family group or two couples traveling together.  Just 1.9 miles from the center of Williamstown and Williams College, we are within easy reach of all that our lovely area and the entire Berkshire Hills, Southern Vermont and Hudson Valley regions have to offer.

  The farmhouse faces west on the eastern side of the Green River Valley at the base of Mount Williams, on seven hundred acres of splendid farmland.    Owned and operated by the Galusha Family for five generations, Fairfields Farm remains one of the crown jewels of Williamstown.

  The Ingalls Crossing bed & breakfast apartment is located in the center of the Fairfields working dairy farm itself, in the old ell attached to our house.   If you have fond memories of a farm, you'll love Ingalls Crossing.

  Please note that reservations are required in advance at Ingalls Crossing, and will require a deposit.

Ingalls Crossing is breakfast-only.

TWO NIGHT MINIMUM STAY ON WEEKENDS 15 APRIL -15 NOVEMBER
One night stays allowed Sunday through Thursday nights in summer and fall
One night stays allowed anytime in the off-season

  Ingalls Crossing is creaky, crooked, cozy, quaint - with old things to look at and touch. It's not grand, but it is fun and fresh.  Upstairs there are two bedrooms.  One has a queen bed and large adjoining private bathroom, and the other has a double bed and private use of the small downstairs bathroom.  You may rent one bedroom or both bedrooms.

  The remainder of the downstairs consists of the common sitting room with local telephone, coffee and tea makers, and the little dining room, where you will eat your breakfast.    Make your own coffee and tea when you get up, and leave the dishes for us.  

Ingalls Crossing is a breakfast-only lodging with a small under-counter fridge, which we keep stocked with milk, juice, butter and yogurt for your use.  There are no cooking facilities.  For the comfort of all of our valued guests, please do not bring in supplies of food.  Guests are expected to take lunch and dinner elsewhere.  Beverages, medical or baby supplies and children's snacks are allowed.

   Continental breakfast includes juice, coffee, tea, delicious hot breakfast breads (baked with our own milk and eggs), yogurt or kefir, cereal and fresh fruit.

  Ingalls Crossing is a non-smoking house, except in a limited area outdoors.   With so many animals, we are unable to accommodate your furry friends, but your good little human children are always welcome.  We have plenty of story books, and kids can feed and/or pet our baby cows, goats, ducks and horses.   If you will bring more than one child, you will be required to rent both bedrooms - in our intimate cottage-like space, this arrangement allows everybody to relax and not have to shush the kids.

The Ingalls Crossing apartment is kept cool and dry during hot humid weather, and toasty warm upstairs in frigid weather.   There are no individual climate controls.

We offer a fun place to stay on a beautiful farm, but we don't allow visitors to do chores or milk cows.  As time and weather permit, we will show you around a bit and give you walking directions so that you can wander the farm - but in this day and age we can't allow you to enter the actual operation, so don't plan on that.

Bring your bike, good walking shoes - and of course, your camera!

Ingalls Crossing works very nicely for college-seeking students and their parents.  Our combination of bedrooms and bathrooms gives everybody some "space", yet the family is together in a private apartment.
