About

Built in the 1920's by a New York surgeon for use as a summer estate, Applegate is set amid towering pines and manicured lawns. Rose gardens, perennial beds, and mature apple trees covering the nearly six acres of the property. A circular drive leads to the two-story pillared Georgian colonial where, inside, you will find Applegate tastefully decorated with oriental carpets, fine antiques, and quality reproductions. Each evening, wine and cheese are offered to guests in the library/living room, complete with a baby grand piano and cozy fireplace. There is also a separate TV room with its own small video library and VCR. Breakfast is served in the dining room in front of the fireplace, where candles flicker from the polished antique silver candelabras that are set on each table. Classical music fill the air while breakfast is elegantly served on antique bone china with crystal stemware.

Fantastic Rooms and service!

4.0 on November 19, 2014

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.


Great place, excellent service!

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!

Lovely spot. Beautiful room. Quiet street. Accommodating and friendly host. Close to Lenox and Great Barrington, but without the tumult in those two places.


Wish we could have stayed longer

We have stayed here 16 nights over the last few years, and have never been disappointed. Len and Gloria are very accommodating, and do everything they can to enhance your experience. As a bonus, we often meet interesting fellow travelers in the daily wine & cheese offerings. This will continue to be our inn of choice when staying in the Berkshires.
