elcome to Centennial House Bed and Breakfast, a rambling 17-room estate built by master craftsmen in 1811, that offers spacious guest rooms, comfortable beds, private baths and ample country breakfasts with homemade baked goods. We love our proximity to mountains and strikingly beautiful sections of the historic Connecticut River, accessible in season by narrated cruises describing the historic and environmental heritage of
this 'National Historic River', or by canoe and kayak (see "Activities and Packages")
Centennial House, like its surroundings in one of New England's best-preserved villages, Northfield, MA, is rich in history and perfect for school and college visits, vacations, romantic weekend getaways and special occasions. Flexible lodging options include single rooms and two-room suites.
Once the residence of the Northfield Academy president, Centennial House welcomes current and prospective students, parents and alumni of Northfield Mount Hermon, Bement School, Deerfield Academy, Stoneleigh Burnham and Center schools, the Five College consortium (including the University of Massachusetts, Smith College, Amherst College, Hampshire College and Mt. Holyoke College), Keene State College, the School for International Training in Brattleboro and many other educational institutions. The many schools and colleges in the region give it a vitality that rivals urban areas but with a slower pace and scenic beauty.
Weekenders, vacationers and business travelers will find our location off Interstate 91 and near Route 2/Mohawk Trail convenient to attractions and restaurants. Such as Yankee Candle, Historic Deerfield Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory, and Kringle Candle.
