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!
We have been staying here for years and will continue to return for as long as we can. The proprietor is not only charming but is a top flight professional, not to mention a terrific cook. A "don't miss" experience.
The room was a perfect size and comfortable. We read it had a jacuzzi tub but it is definitely a one person tub (no romantic jacuzzi time). That was a bit of a bummer. The breakfast in the morning was buffet style and was delicious with many great choices. It was also right next to hiking trails which we enjoyed! Overall it was a nice night away from home!
On a quiet street within walking distance of central Lee, the Red Door B&B is flawless: the place is simple and clean, comfortable and wholesome, and entirely of the utmost quality. Our rooms were spacious and spotless with soft beds and sunny windows, and a fire crackled in the living room all evening and morning. The hosts were very generous: not only were there numerous pocket-kits of shampoo/soap/conditioner set around the room for us and slabs of local Berkshire chocolate on the pillows (amaazing), but Susan and Al also gave us ample information on restaurants in the area, menus, directions, and even printed us some information on the whole-house water filtration system they just installed that we were envious of (if you’re interested, it was by Aquasana). Friendly and considerate, they made us feel right at home. And then there was breakfast… As a family of foodies we were especially appreciative of the absolute feast Susan prepared for breakfast the next morning, complete with lavish fruit & yogurt parfaits, hot “strata” (egg, cheese, spinach & ciabatta pie) that we could smell baking throughout the house, sides of bacon and fresh vegetables. Susan was very accommodating of our various dietary quirks, and all her ingredients were organic and locally grown on nearby farms— delicious! Would recommend this place to anyone looking to relax, eat well, sleep well, and enjoy good company.
We enjoyed a second wonderful stay at Devonfield Inn last weekend. The innkeepers are both gracious and helpful with suggestions for local restaurants and sites to visit. The breakfasts are tasty, well prepared and a delight to view. The location is both easy to find and convenient to many Berkshire places of interest. We look forward to our next stay.
We had the wonderful Birchwood Inn to ourselves for the first week of March when most local inns close. Becca was an attentive host, ensuring tea or coffee was ready whenever we wanted, baking something tasty every afternoon. Her breakfasts were delicious. I could live in the library. We'll be back. Note: the review page wouldn't allow me to select Outstanding or I would have.
Ellen, the Innkeep at Birchwood and her staff are lovely people and very helpful. The big public room is everything one could want in a welcoming cozy place to retire to with a book in hand - or simply wander and see what you pick up.
