Went to MA for some cross-country skiing. The Garden Gables was near some trails so we stayed there. Great place and great breakfast!!

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.

The best!

My daughter and I loved our stay at this wonderful inn in downtown Lenox on beautiful grounds. Our room was lovely. The atmosphere warm and serene. The breakfast was spectacular - we ordered french toast, egg white omelet, fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice. The service was impeccable. It was obvious all of the care that went into creating such a special place. I look forward to returning with my husband to this absolutely delightful inn.

The best hideaway you could find

For a getaway weekend you can't beat this place. We have only been there twice but only in the winter and find it fabulous and convenient for everything...skiing, food, museums, culture, and relaxation. Breakfast is yummy and the library room is so relaxing. Meeting people from everywhere. Romantic room with fireplace and great amenities. You will not be disappointed.

A wonderful experience!

Garden Gables Inn is absolutely perfect. Our stay was very enjoyable. The best breakfast and chocolate chip cookies ever! The staff was phenomenal.

Our Getaway

5 on September 10, 2013

At the last minute, my husband and I decided to get away for his birthday. The Garden Gables Inn surpassed everything we hoped for. Service was fantastic, the room with our own private porch and all in walking distance of restaurants, pubs and stores. Their breakfast is outstanding! Can't wait to do this again.

Wonderful visa to Lenox

Our Weekend at Garden Gables

4.8 on August 21, 2013

This was my second time at Garden Gables and it was even better than the first. The staff is always available and so helpful in providing directions and tips on getting around and recommendations on top attractions. Truly, my sister and I enjoyed everything the Inn offered and hope we will be able to get reservations in the future. It appears that guests return year after year.

Just right, in so many ways

5 on August 10, 2013

We have stayed in many inns and hotels in the Lenox area. If you are looking for a B&B that is hermetically sealed with a breakfast right out of microwave, you can find that in Lenox. But not at the Garden Gables Inn. And it is the big things, and the little things that the Garden Gables does, that makes staying there so delightful. Other people write about the wonderful breakfasts and cookies. They will probably mention the beautiful rooms with first class linens, or the delightful pool. Absolutely true. But it's the people who own the Garden Gables, their staff and the people who stay there that makes for a wonderful experience. The Inn attracts a wide range of guests (but no kids!) so it never feels like a nursing home as some B&B's do. Guests can stay to themselves or interact with other guests. Somedays we may decide to see a play, or go to museum or drive around. But most days, just staying around pool and soaking up all the great things the Garden Gables offers, is just right. P.S. If you are luck enough to be there during the summer when they are serving dinner, do not miss it!
