The Federal House is beautiful, comfortable, clean and in a prime location close to Lenox and Stockbridge, with easy access to the Mass Pike. Breakfast was delicious, room was well appointed and spacious, and the service was excellent. We will return.

We stayed at the Federal House while skiing at Butternut. This Inn is very beautifully decorated and at the same time very cozy and comfortable. It is very clean with a charming atmosphere. The breakfast was delicious and the wine, cheese and crackers served at cocktail hour was a very nice touch. Would stay here again no question.
