Warm and Pleasant Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on March 02, 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The attention to detail and accommodations were exceptional! Would have enjoyed more than one night. Highly recommend.


This is a wonderful Inn - would stay there again

4.8 on February 26, 2014

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.


Suprisingly Pleasant Enviornment

3.6 on February 24, 2014

We were surprised by the delicious breakfast. The variety added to the delight. The driveway was not plowed when we arrived and the the bathroom needed to be cleaned better than it was because there were cobwebs above the mirror and light fixture. The cobwebs were also located around the base of the bed. Besides that, everything else was fine.


A perfect getaway location...wonderful place...cannot wait to go back

5 on February 20, 2014

The Inn and rooms are beautiful. The owners are wonderful people and food was out of this world! We will definitely be going back. We have stayed in a lot of places but this was our first Inn/B&B and we loved it!


Happy Holidays!

3.6 on December 06, 2013

My friends and I had 2 rooms in this lovely B&B for our annual Post-Thanksgiving Weekend getaway. As we love the Berkshires, the location of this place was great, just down the road from beautiful Stockbridge. The rooms were lovely, with comfy beds and electric fireplaces. Wine and cheese at 5pm was a nice touch. In the morning we were treated to a gourmet breakfast which tasted great and was very filling! Didn't eat again until dinner. When staying in the Berkshires we would consider this warm place again.
