Stayed here for two nights right after a snow storm blanketed the area. I can't describe how beautiful the grounds were covered in snow with a small waterfall cascading off the back deck. The breakfast room faces this gorgeous view! The inn keepers are more than friendly and go out of their way to meet any and every need. The hospitality was unmatched. Our room was amazing, we had the Martha room. The fireplace roaring with a fresh blanket of snow and a lovely king sized bed, two wing backed chairs, refrigerator and coffee maker, and we were tempted to never leave the room. The inn is a stone's throw from the Shakespeare Theater and amazing dining. We will be back in the summer!!! Don't miss this Inn!! It was the best I have stayed in in the Berkshires!!
My husband and I enjoyed the most magical weekend away at the Birchwood Inn. The warmth and care that the owner Ellen puts into all she does is evident from the moment you check in. Our room was spotless and the most beautiful open fireplace was a perfect compliment to the freezing weather. Breakfast was truly worth 'the best in New England' title and we will definitely return again.
I stayed here for 2 nights, and wish I could have stayed longer. I checked into my room in the lovely main house, to be met at the door by the smell of hot apple cider and gluten-free cookies. I stayed in "Helen", on the second floor. It was a medium sized room with a queen bed; I would imagine that it might be a little tight for 2 people with luggage, but it was great for one. The bed was comfortable, everything was clean, and I loved the antique style furnishings and decor. The B&B is just gorgeous, and it has a beautiful, large outdoor patio with tables for the warm months. Breakfast was delicious, and there is also the tavern open in the afternoon and evenings. It was nice sitting in the common area with a glass of wine, while perusing the book of menus from local restaurants, trying to decide where to eat. The owners were extremely friendly, and always on hand to give suggestions and advice. The location was good, a 3 minute drive from the business district (or a nice walk if it were warm), and there was plenty of parking. And it was really affordable considering everything. I couldn't have asked for a better stay. Will definitely be back!!!
The Cornell Inn had everything we wanted in a country inn: romance and comfort . Our room, "Barbara" was absolutely adorable with a queen canopy bed, wood burning fireplace and charming period details. It was also very clean, spacious and well furnished. The common areas and grounds were also nicely furnished and well maintained. The homemade breakfast was delicious. The Cornell Inn definitely exceeded our expectations, especially given the affordable cost relative to the other inns in the area.
wonderful place. top notch quality accommodations. the amenities are superb. the hosts are gracious and helpful. take a room with a working wood fireplace, you will not be sorry. breakfast is exquisite with one featured dish each day. you will want to sit in the large living room sipping a cordial, (free) and enjoying the atmosphere. Highly recommended.
Stayed here last weekend and cant beat the experience! Owners Bob and Mary thought of every detail. Room was beautiful, jacuzzi tub was immaculate and fireplace was so relaxing. Breakfast was fresh and waiting for you along with tranquil music playing as we stepped in. We had to clean up after our selves before leaving because it was so nice. There was no need to leave. The weather forecast was printed for the week along with books of menus and places to visit. The inn keepers really work hard to take care of this quaint beautiful spot. We will be back, so hard to leave.
These people know what they are doing!! Well run inn and staff appears to like what they're doing. I.e. taking care of guests, making sure they're comfortable and welcome. Breakfast was a feast!!! We'd stay there again! .
I recently had a very relaxing stay at the Cornell Inn which is perfectly located near the restaurants and shops in Lenox. Nell and her staff were so helpful and pleasant! Breakfast was great and we felt very much at home. We will definitely return, especially given the wonderful hospitality and value. A little gem in Lenox!
The rooms are very cozy and clean. Everything is provided to make the stay very comfortable. The wine and cheese hour and random homemade cookies were a nice touch. I'd suggest skipping the breakfast and eating at one of the many great brunch spots in the Berkshires.
Lovely inn, set back from the road in handsome rural setting. Comfortable bed, excellent breakfast buffet selections along with special hot breakfast each morning. Innkeeper warm and eager to be helpful. Highly recommend this choice.
We were warmly welcomed by Tim, who also provided the history of the Inn and information about what to do in the area (our first visit). Our room was exceedingly comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding. Would certainly stay there again, and do recommend it for anyone considering the area. Thanks, Tim!
This was my first time at a Bed and Breakfast, and it was a very pleasing experience! Len and Gloria were very gracious guests. We really enjoyed our room (Room 1) and the daily wine and cheese! I highly recommend the Applegate Inn!
The Inn was very clean, calm, and restfulness. Owner of the inn, Johnny, is very friendly person. We really enjoyed beautiful fall leaves around the Inn and watching horses in the farm next to the main house. However, the breakfast was little bit downgrade---just frach toast and sausages... Given that the price per one night including breakfast was over $230, I don't think the quality of the breakfast was met my expectation...except that, overall our stay was fine. FYI, free wifi is not working!
Our stay at 1800 Devonfield Inn was just what we needed. It was quiet, clean and relaxing. The inkeepers were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and the cognac was a nice touch also.
This is a beautiful inn, very well managed. Ellen, the Inkeepper, is adorable and did everything in her power to make us comfortable -- even served afternoon tea for us when we arrived! Breakfast was prepared with love and care and the hot dish was quite out of the ordinary and delicious! The freshly baked bread too! No dinner served, but a wide choice of restaurants not far away. We only stayed for one night as the third-floor bedroom was too much for us to handle. The bathroom in the room we had was private, but across the hall, not ensuite. And, it is never too much to remind anyone thinking of staying here that these historic houses will not have elevators and you will have to drag your suitcase upstairs! So pack light and enjoy your stay!
We weren't "blown away" by anything, but fhave no complaints either. We chose one of the cheaper rooms up on the third floor. The bed was very comfortable and clean, but we lacked space to put our luggage and toiletries. Ellen was sweet and accommodating, but the real treasure was her assistant Dave who brought liveliness, great local knowledge and good conversation to our morning meal!
Food was excellent - home-cooked, traditional and imaginative, large variety of items and delicious. Our room was the Beethoven Suite - it has large, double sliding glass doors opening onto a private deck with wonderful views of the Berkshire mountains, especially beautiful during the foliage season. Quiet, out of the way but close to a great restaurant where we enjoyed an excellent dinner. Our host was very nice and helpful and we quite enjoyed her company. Highly recommended.
If one is looking for a bucolic, pleasurable experience that harkens back to the halcyon days, Devonfield is the Inn of the Millennium. Not pretentious, but appointed with luxury. The innkeepers, Bruce and Ronnie, are thoughtful and accommodating. The atmosphere is conducive to the all that one wishes an Inn to be. We have been coming to Devonfield Inn for a decade and we would never go anywhere else. Treat yourself to charm and dignity in being a guest at Devonfield Inn.
