The gas fireplace went "on the Fritz", as they say, but went out in grand style! No problem, there was an electric heater available, and the writhing demise of the fireplace was a glimmering display of memorable proportions. This house is a cozy, welcoming and warm visit, always too short no matter how long the stay. The breakfast is always scrumptious, the room elegant. The afternoon "nibble hour" is a great time to chat with other guests and plan an evening's dine out. Always a memorable time away there, but feels like home. Close to everything there is to do and see in the Berkshires. to paraphrase the Terminator: "We'll be Bach!"

Kolleen and Brian were great hosts. Kolleen was willing to make breakfast vegan for me which I really appreciated. We enjoyed the old inn. It was so close to Stockbridge.

The Federal House Inn was an exceptional find. We were able to stay just one night, unlike most others in the area. The proximity to Stockbridge and Tanglewood made it a treat. The grounds and the lovely, large room made it a wonderful stay. We were also impressed by the wine and cheese at 5 pm and the breakfast the next morning was simply sublime!! Definitely planning a return stay!

We stayed at the Federal House for our visit to Tanglewood. It is most convenient, well kept and a great breakfast. Would stay again.

This was our second stay at the Federal House Inn. As before, Brian and Kolleen were delightful, friendly, helpful innkeepers. Their staff keeps the Inn spotless--no small feat for an old house. They, too, are sweet, friendly, and efficient workers. We had the Skylight Suite, which we love--two bathrooms and double beds for two women. Plus a little sitting room. The breakfasts were deeeeelicious! Wine, cheese, and crackers are available every afternoon at 5:00. Brandy available, too. A truly pleasant place to stay--worth every penny!

With just one evening to get away, we chose The Federal House and couldn't be happier. The Inn is lovely, the grounds, beautiful and the service, spectacular! We enjoyed wine and cheese upon arrival on the front porch, meeting a few other guests and taking in the evening and sharing dinner ideas. The room itself was clean & bright, the only drawback (we stayed in the Crabtree room,) being the mattress. We found it a bit uncomfortable, but not enough to deter us from a future stay. The best part was the incredible delicious breakfast in the morning. Honestly we found it more delightful than the very pricey meal we had the evening before at a different establishment down the road from the Inn! Overall The Federal House is one of our new favorites and we cannot wait for another chance to visit!

Brian and Colleen were lovely and very accommodating. The breakfast was delicious! I thought the price was a bit high, but nonetheless the rooms were spacious and very clean. Would definitely recommend!
