This bed and breakfast is outstanding. The owners have done a beautiful job making each room special and very comfortable. We would only suggest bringing your own pillow as some of the rooms have hard pillows. They are pet friendly also and have an adorable basket they offer you that has a water and food bowl, a feed Matt, towels and a blanket for your dog and treats. The location is right next to the Shaker Mill restaurant which is very good we had the scallops and a bacon burger.
The Summer White House provided a relaxing, tranquil setting to get away for a few nights! Close to stores, restaurants and attractions, yet quiet and peaceful. Delicious breakfast and a well maintained mansion, we highly recommend a stay there!
Our stay was cut short when we turned down our bed and seed pellets (or something) fell out of our pillows. Needless to say, we were freaked out. The owner was not interested or willing to see what we found or consider refunding our money. It was a bizarre and disappointing experience.
I really enjoyed my stay. The room was very pretty. I loved the old school house charm. The place was centrally located. We walked to The Morgan for lunch and dinner which was wonderful! The owner of the bed and breakfast was a doll. We will stay again!
Easy to get to all the area attractions we were interested in. Every dish at breakfast was delicious, and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. Our room in the carriage house was nicely furnished. The bathroom was tiny-more shelf space needed.
Scheduling a gals weekend away in the Berkshires to celebrate a birthday, I reviewed approx 20+ inns across many towns. We settled on The Garden Gables Inn because if fit our price range, accommodated the four of us together in a 2-bedroom suite and included breakfast. We stayed in Hilltop Orchard Suite 12. It included 2 separate bedrooms - 1 w/queen bed and 1 w/2 twins, 1 bath and a great living room with ample comfy seating & working fireplace. The bedrooms are small but there is plenty of closet, drawer and shelf space. The beds and bedding were comfortable and luxurious. There is a small shared(?) deck across from the front door area. The fireplace was equipped with duraflame logs which were easy to light. The innkeeper was very helpful with requested ordering of flowers/balloons in suite upon arrival and a delicious plate of chocolate covered strawberries the second night. The Inn is within walking distance to downtown with great stores, galleries, restaurants and coffee shops. We walked there every day and evening for dinner. The Inn offers a complete breakfast in the main house with everything you could want (both healthy and indulgent, both hot and cold). Our server, Susan, both days was the best. There is a spa that we did not use and a large outdoor pool (covered for winter). I can say that our stay exceeded expectations and thank the innkeeper, Marti, for a great stay and special celebration.
We had the best experience here. The owners are very friendly and generous. Our room was adorable as was the entire house. There was wine and delicious appetizers in the evening. We were served a gormet three course breakfast in the morning. We were very sad to leave this place and would definitely come back.
The bed was comfy, the room was cozy, the breakfast was outstanding, but most importantly, what made me fall in love with this place is how we were made to feel when we were there. Jen made us feel so comfortable... She is down to earth, welcoming, and so genuine. When we left, I really felt like I was leaving a friends home, I was sad to leave, and hoping to go back soon!
We recently stayed at the Devonfield Inn for the second time. To our delight, there had been no changes. Our hosts, Bruce and Ronnie, were charming, attentive and helpful in every way possible. The inn itself can only be described as everyone’s ideal mental picture of what a B&B should be. Built in the early 1900’s and upgraded through the years with just enough of the modernized creature comforts to appeal to just about everyone without losing the charm of earlier times. Breakfasts are ample, farm fresh and over the top delicious. Regardless of the season, we could not think of staying anywhere else. Steve & Harriette
Richard, Joan and Lisa were wonderful hosts. We were in Mr. Whistler’s Room #7 which was very large and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit old fashioned with interesting old fixtures and was more than adequate but not what you would call high end. The common rooms and gardens of this gracious old mansion are truly remarkable. The house exudes charm and warmth, and we enjoyed chatting with other guests over breakfast in the beautiful dining room. Make sure to ask Richard to show the Travel Channel video about the ghosts in the house! I'm giving it four stars all around because it is not super luxurious but it was still a memorable and fine experience for us. The location is also very convenient to all the many attractions in the area. We traveled around quite a bit, visiting MoCa, The Clark Museum of Art, the Williams College Museum of Art, the Shakespeare Theater in Lenox and the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, not to mention hiking in Kennedy Park, just a short walk from the Inn. So overall we had a wonderful long weekend in Lenox.The only disappointment was that the fall colors were not so spectacular this year.
We stayed on a beautiful fall weekend for our anniversary. The room was wonderful, the bed very comfortable, and the hosts were so friendly. The breakfast we had in the morning was absolutely delicious. We will Go back again and plan to soon
Debbie and Tom were very gracious hosts who went out of their way to accommodate their guests. The gourmet breakfasts were so delicious and the late afternoon treats were tasty. The location of Birchwood Inn was convenient to walking to Lenox for dinner or shopping.
