We have been guests at Applegate Inn three times, most recently in July 2016. We appreciate the warm welcome provided by the Friedmans and their inn manager. Applegate is convenient in every way, especially its Lee location and proximity to Tanglewood and all that The Berkshires has to offer. The little things mean a lot: eating breakfast on the sunny back porch that overlooks the swimming pool, a bottomless cookie jar, hot and cold beverages always available, wine and cheese during the cocktail hour... and more.
A very nice place to stay. Excellent breakfast. Somewhat pricy but they know that they have you being so close to Tanglewood. Would probably look for a more economical place but it was the July 4th weekend.
We stayed at the Inn for three nights over 4th of July weekend. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and got us off to a great start everyday for our hiking and biking adventures. Clean and comfortable room. Beautiful outdoor dining by a koi pond. Will definitely be back!
This was a great choice for the money. The innkeepers are fabulous, the rooms are well appointed and clean. Everyone was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. outside area very quaint, yummy breakfast! We also had some late night snacks after a concert!
Our stay at The Red Door B&B could not have been nicer. Susan and Al were welcoming from the moment we reserved. We stayed in the Spring room, which has its own private bathroom. The bed linens and bath towels were of excellent quality and the mattress was, truly, perfect. Susan's breakfasts (and Al's coffee) were delicious as well. And the location really can't be beat, just a short walk to the restaurants and shops in Lee and a short drive to Lenox, Pittsfield, and Great Barrington.
We have been staying at the Applegate Inn for over 20 years. We think of it as our home away from home and look forward to keeping up our visits indefinitely. The staff is warm and welcoming, the guest bedrooms are inviting and romantic and the common rooms are very enjoyable. The pool and the park-like setting are perfect for reading or silent meditation. There are also wonderful personal touches that make the experience of staying here very special. The wine and cheese at 5pm, the bottled water, soda and juices and the Cookie JAR beckoning after an evening out enjoying theater, music or dance. PERFECT in every way!
Beautiful home in a lovely setting surrounded by trees and mountains in the distance. Short drive to Lee which is a quintessential Berkshire small town. Room very comfortable and clean. Only disappointment was the breakfast.
What a beautiful place to stay. The owners are wonderful and make you feel right at home. The pictures online don't do the inn justice... It is so much prettier in person. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!!! The breakfast is soooo delish
We stayed just one night but it is a lovely location and within walking distance to Lenox, about 15 minutes. The room ( Abigail) was beautifully furnished and was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was buffet style and with a range of hot and cold food. The blueberry pancakes were the best I've had for ages. Service was friendly and efficient.
Tim and Nell are wonderful hosts and their inn offers lovely rooms, a terrific breakfast repast and well-kept grounds. We've stayed in a number of beautifully-appointed accommodations between last summer and thus April. The daily breakfast buffet spread is plentiful with a great variety of choices from pancakes and sausage to scrambled eggs and omelettes made to order. Freshly baked muffins are available also. Eating can be inside or al fresco and sitting or dining on the deck by the miniature waterfall, watching the carp is relaxing. Tim and Nell are friendly and gracious, attentive and readily available to answer questions or offer information. The walk to historic Lenox is about an easy thirty minutes walk where one can find numerous restaurants, an old-fashioned bookstore, shopping places and brick paths to walk on. For more adventurous souls are such attractions as Tanglewood, Edith Wharton 's home and the Berkshires.
The owners, Tim and Nell, are very personable and accommodating. Karen, their chef, makes wonderful breakfast dishes and will cook to order - the food is fantastic! We have been to the Cornell Inn twice and look forward to staying there again - and visiting with Tim, Nell, Ian and Karen.
A great option in high priced Lenox. I stayed there in the early spring and could see that it would be even more lovely when the weather is a little nicer. It is close to the road, but nothing a pair of ear plugs couldn't fix. I was in a room at the front of the building, probably better further back. Tim was very helpful and welcoming. I would definitely return.
The inn's proximity to the town of Lenox and the ability to walk to the theatre, plus short drives to the Audubon society, Chocolate Springs Cafe and Vittori's Furnace Brook winery was a delightful bonus. The inn is exquisite and the staff/owner that make it so should be applauded!
Three friends and I met at Applegate B and B for a one night reunion. We loved staying in the cottage as it had 2 bedrooms sitting areas and its own kitchen. We. enjoyed the wine and cheese while sitting in the beautiful sun room. Breakfast was outstanding with more food than the four of us could possibly eat. Thank you Len and Gloria. We would love to return!
