Warm and inviting B&B

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!

My Wedding

We planned a destination wedding and the Inn and its staff were AMAZING. They helped us every step of the way. While we were there, they were always available to provide EVERYTHING and ANYTHING we needed. The entire weekend (rehearsal and dinner, ceremony) was perfect. The rooms were comfortable and beautiful. They catered all our events and the food was SUPERB! Thanks Chef Justin!!!! Justin was finely in tune with everything going on. When my bride missed out on the cupcake flavor she wanted, he somehow knew about it and somehow came up with more and gave to her the next morning. He secretly made a special request and surprised me with it. He was spectacular. Jayne was the inn's special event coordinator in charge of our event and she did a spectacular job. The town is very quaint and has a rich history. I do not have a single negative comment to make. They far exceeded my already high expectations. I cannot wait to go back.

I spent a lovely two nights with friends enjoying the fire in the fireplace. Breakfast was delicious both mornings. The Inn is walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Perfect Stay

We had a perfect stay at the Garden Gables - the cozy room with fireplace, central yet private location in Lenox (tucked away from the road on a pretty estate), and friendly staff were all highlights of our stay. We look forward to a return stay!

Wonderful place

We stayed at the Garden Gables Inn because we were attending a weekend workshop at Kripalu, which is very close by. While we loved the learning experience, we wish we had been able to spend more time enjoying the charm and comfort of the Inn!

Wonderful Place, Wonderful Staff

I have stayed at the Garden Gables for 4 years now; always happy with the experience. This year was my best visit yet due to the incredible service from both the inn keepers and the owner. They really wanted to know what they could do to address some of my specific needs. And they did make adjustments for me that I really appreciated. This efforts on their part exceeded my expectations and made for an even better experience. Plus they did it all with such kindness and respect. Many thanks to you.
