A fireside (fall and winter) candlelit gourmet breakfast is served on fine china accompanied by classical music. Breakfast includes a bountiful buffet followed by a specially selected hot entree served tableside each day. Follow breakfast with a stroll through the flower-filled gardens, play a round of tennis or golf, or take a dip in the heated pool, and then enjoy the best in cultural and recreational activities in all seasons. Or, just relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, snooze in a hammock (or by a roaring fire), have afternoon refreshments or a complimentary cordial in the living room. Whatever you choose, you’ll find warm hospitality, relaxation, and rejuvenation to be the hallmark of your stay in this romantic country home.

Always a great place to stay

5 on August 07, 2014

We've stayed at the Devonfield Inn a couple of times and it's always been a welcome, friendly and enjoyable experience. Centrally located too. I highly recommend it as a great place to stay in the Berkshires.


will be back

4.8 on July 20, 2014

great location - thoroughly delightful weekend


relaxing stay

4.4 on July 19, 2014

We had a very relaxing stay at Devonfield Inn as a family. It is very well situated in the Berkshires. We loved the quaint atmosphere, the rooms' comfortable furnishings, very tasty and beautifully served breakfasts, the pretty grounds and the pool, and the welcoming hosts. The only thing to improve would be the mattress in our room, which was too soft for our taste. We also loved the little treats always available in the common rooms (candy, cookies). We would be happy to come back when we are in the Berkshires again.


Will definitely stay again, given the chance!

5 on July 06, 2014

We enjoyed our stay immensely! Our hosts were gracious, the house beautiful, and breakfast delicious. The inn is in a perfect location for exploring the area - dozens of delicious restaurants, shopping, museums, pick-your-own farms, as well as proximity to Tanglewood and Jacob's Pillow. While our "penthouse" suite didn't have the Colonial charm of most of the other rooms, it was large and comfortable and the bath with jacuzzi and double shower heads was a treat all by itself. We were lucky enough to spend a rainy evening alone in the living area, listening to jazz and sipping Frangelico, which gave us the fantasy of living in a classic movie - say, Philadelphia Story, or Bringing up Baby. We assumed Kate Hepburn would turn the corner with her tennis racquet at any moment). Extra points for the plethora of books and the adorable inn minature labradoodle, Bella, who is a sweet, quiet cuddler.


June Wedding at the Devonfield

5 on June 28, 2014

My husband and I just got married at the Devonfield and had a fantastic weekend with 25 of our closest family and friends. Bruce and Ronnie take such good care of the grounds, and the home is so full of character, that it all of our guests felt like they were at home. We had the ceremony outside near the birch trees, cocktail hour on the back patio, and dinner in their porch. Everyone working at the Inn made sure everyone was taken care of and things went off without a hitch. Highly recommend for an intimate wedding or a relaxing evening in the Berkshires!

Huge, beautiful house


OUTSTANDING B&B

5 on January 05, 2014

THE BEST B&B IN EVERY SENSE THAT WE'VE STAYED AT. WE WERE SO TAKEN WITH EVERYTHING THAT WE BOOKED AGAIN FOR NEXT NEW YEARS--AS DID THE SIX OTHER COUPLES THAT WE STAYED WITH. THE OWNERS AND STAFF ARE FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL AND BELLA THE DOG PROVIDES THE FINISHING TOUCH.


Amazing overnight getaway during Christmas holidays

4.8 on January 02, 2014

I treated my husband to an overnight stay at the Devonfield Inn as a Christmas gift. The Inn is beautiful and it is clear the owners put a lot of time and money into renovations. Each room is unique and we stayed in the Penthouse Suite on the third floor. My ONLY complaint - stepping into and out of the jacuzzi tub for a shower was somewhat of a challenge because it was very deep, but that was it for negatives and was probably only exclusive to our particular room. Kim greeted us and was warm and friendly and took good care of us during breakfast, which was delicious. The Inn was beautifully decorated for the holidays and we loved everything about it. I look forward to a return trip!


Our Christmas Gift

4.6 on January 01, 2014

The Devonfield Inn is a beautiful Bed and Breakfast in Lee, MA, where I surprised my boyfriend for his Christmas present. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite, which is terrific, and enjoyed complimentary cordials and cookies from the inn. I only wished that we were able to afford another night, as our visit flew by. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially because we were the only guests in the house on that particular Sunday night (which I don't believe happens very often). We will certainly be back!

  • Deposit Amount Required: A full deposit is required for one-night stays. A 50% deposit is required for two nights or longer stays.
  • Cancellations: Because of our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last-minute cancellation leaves little chance of filling the reserved space. For this reason, the Inn maintains a strict cancellation policy. Deposits will be refunded only if notice is received by our office no less than 14 days (30 days in July and August) prior to the intended date of arrival. A service charge of $50.00 per room will be deducted from the deposit. Guests who check out before the last day of the reservation will be required to pay for the days reserved in full. We realize that situations may arise necessitating cancellation within the 14 day limit (30 days in July and August), and do sympathize, however we must maintain our business policy due to limited season and high accommodation demands. A partial refund may be possible only if we are able to re-book the room(s). We must have a deposit on all rooms in order to guarantee the reservation.
