Best B&B ever!

5 on October 04, 2014

This was an excellent stay for me and my mom. Everthing was so carefully selected and planned. We loved sitting on the porch and in the garden. And the food... waking up to the smells of freshly baked bread and the delicious gourmet breakfast... Enjoyed every minute of our stay... Thank you Ellen!


A true Gem

4.8 on September 30, 2014

Birchwood Inn is set in such a beautiful location. The owner is so pleasant and a wonderful cook. Her staff were gracious and humble. I loved my stay there and would definitely go back. It was peaceful, pleasant, serene, beautiful, restful, yummy, and all things you wish in a country B+B.

Innkeeper Response
I am delighted that you so enjoyed your stay! We hope to welcome you home to Birchwood Inn again soon.


Wonderful place to unwind

5 on September 22, 2014

I would highly recommend the Birchwood Inn. It is a beautiful, well maintained inn in a delightful part of the country. The innkeeper is absolutely delightful. We were traveling with our golden and were so very pleased that we could stay in such a nice inn with our pet... for only an additional $25.00. The breakfast was amazing. We will definitely return if we are ever fortunate enough to find ourselves in this part of the country again. Linda from Chapel HIll, NC

Innkeeper Response
There are many joys of innkeeping, and two are welcoming guests from all over the US and the world as well as meeting wonderful pets. We have a special place in our Birchwood hearts for Goldens as Quinn as been the Queen of Birchwood for more than 15 years!


a breakfast to remember

5 on September 02, 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the elegant and very comfortable Birchwood Inn! Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. Ellen is a gracious Innkeeper, and the baked sweets in the afternoon/evening were all too delicious. Breakfasts were culinary delights, and so uniquely prepared. We felt indulged and at home at the same time.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to let us know that you enjoyed your stay!


Birchwood Inn -- WONDERFUL in all ways !

5 on August 04, 2013

The Birchwood Inn is wonderful in all ways. The rooms are very nice and very clean, there is a wonderful and large "common area", the front porch with its wicker furniture is real special, the breakfasts are fantastic, and the location is terrific.


Wonderful weekend at Birchwood Inn

Charming decor, wonderful staff, ideal location, superior breakfast. Elizabeth and Russell Schutt


Went for Tanglewood, will return for The Birchwood

4.6 on April 07, 2013

My wife and I stayed the weekend at The Birchwood Inn last summer while attending the Pops at Tanglewood. It was such a delightful stay that we'll come back another time to enjoy the comfortable room, warm hospitality, scrumptious breakfasts and the long walks in the state park across the road (to help keep calories in check). Also near to lots of other neat things in Lenox and the Berkshires. Great stay, Ellen! Many thanks.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! We hope to make your next stay even better!


Cozy New Years Eve Getaway

4.6 on January 16, 2013

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere snowy and picturesque for New Year's Eve. We lucked out. The Birchwood Inn had a last minute cancellation, which we jumped on immediately. We were thrilled that they allowed us to bring our dog too. On arrival, the assistant innkeeper greeted us cheerfully and took us for a quick tour of the public spaces, which included a beautiful library with a huge, crackling fireplace, the adorable breakfast dining area, and the guest kitchen area where we were hit by fantastic aromas wafting in from the innkeeper's kitchen as she was preparing special treats for the afternoon tea hour. Our room was well decorated and very clean (especially given this is a pet-friendly hotel) and we were happy to see the private Vermont gas stove and thoughtful placement of a cute dog bed and water bowl right beside it. Because it was New Year's Eve, the afternoon tea was actually a wine and cheese hour instead and there were endless bottles of wine served with a generous cheese platter, delicious potato latkes and little spinach pies. Yummy! We chatted with the other guests (which included couples of all generations who were looking for a romantic getaway like ourselves) and even made a few new friends. Dinner and drinks where an easy walk or drive to in town. The next morning we had an amazing 3-course homemade breakfast in front of yet another fireplace. It was amazing! Sadly, we had to pack up and head home after that, but we are looking forward to making a tradition out of our stay at The Birchwood Inn.

Innkeeper Response
I truly hope you make us your traditional home for New Year's! But you don't have to wait for New Year's!


Charming Birchwood Inn

4.8 on October 28, 2012

Such a warm welcome from Ellen at this delightful, quiet and interesting inn. Each day, a different freshly made breakfast, and warm apple cider and cookies by the fireplace in the library each afternoon. Very personal and imaginative cooking by the small dedicated team.. We stayed in the Carriage House, which was very quiet, warm and comfortable; the inn manages to be both homely and elegant. Lenox is a delightful town, and the Inn is a great place to stay. Many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay, and we hope to see you again soon.


Anniversary Stay

3.6 on August 27, 2012

The inn was quaint, clean and restful. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Would have been nice if they added a little extra for anniversary - bottle of wine, or flowers, etc.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for letting us know of your concern.All of our guests are special, and the majority of them are here celebrating an event. We like to think that we honor each guest by providing extra-special breakfasts, uniquely decorated, comfortable and very clean rooms, and outstanding warm service every single day. We do offer a variety of celebration packages from which to choose -- on our website and in each confirmation letter -- or we can create a package just for you.
