Lovely stay and service in the Berkshires

5 on December 04, 2015

We were pleasantly greeted by one of the innkeepers - Angela and the manager - Robert upon our arrival. We were given a tour of the beautiful inn and shown to our lovely room. The entire place is meticulously clean and decorated. Our room was cozy and had everything we needed, including a large bathroom and closet. There is a guest pantry equipped with a Keurig and mini refrigerator for everyone's use. Everything about our stay exceeded expectations! Great people and even greater service. I would highly recommend staying at the Brook Farm Inn on your next trip to the Lee/Lenox area.


a wonderful stay!

Charming place in lovely town

We enjoyed our stay at the Brook Farm Inn: lots of opportunity for leaf-peeking and over-eating in the Berkshires, and a comfy bed at the end of it!


Warm and Comfortable

My husband and I stayed at the Brook Farm Inn while in Lenox seeing two shows at Tanglewood. It was lovely! The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was different each day and was delicious. I would highly recommend visiting this in on your next trip to Lenox, Ma.


A Must-Stay Destination

5 on September 03, 2015

Brook Farm Inn has been a popular Destination in the Berkshires for my husband and I for many, many years. Phil and Linda retired in July of this year, but rest assured that Angela, Robert and John are keeping up the traditions that the Inn is noted for: great breakfast and conversation with the staff; quick and thorough cleaning by housekeeping staff, great choice of rooms and suites, lovely gardens and pool. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH BROOK FARM INN! Elizabeth Tedoldi


A most charming and delightful visit

5 on July 13, 2015

Brook Farm Inn is beautifully appointed and conveniently located just down the road from Tanglewood. The rooms and the grounds are charming and meticulously maintained. The morning breakfast served in the dining area was delicious. Our room was tiny but lovely. The only problem is that for people with mobility issues, the stairs are very steep, especially the staircase to the third floor.


What a beautiful place

5 on June 22, 2015

This was such a nice place, it's a huge old house right outside the center of town, very close to tanglewood. It's in a neighborhood with other houses so it's not a "farm" exactly but we loved it. We didn't eat onsite, but I'm sure that's great too. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. I'd go live there if I could afford it.


anniverwary night

4.4 on June 07, 2015

I surprised my wife with a night just to get away for our anniversary as a spur of the moment idea and we were both pleasantly surprised, the inn keeper and owners were very service oriented and made sure we were comfortable. Let us upgrade the room and we're very informative.


Beautiful inn; delicious breakfast and tea

4.8 on May 01, 2015

Very lovely inn and warm and gracious host. Breakfast and afternoon tea were delicious. Only criticism is that the bathroom/shower were very small. Potential guests should just be aware that there's not a lot of room to turn around in the bathroom. It worked out for us but might not work for anyone of substantial girth.


Great stay!

We enjoyed the outstanding service by Phil and Linda. This is a lovely B&B in a beautiful small town. I highly recommend and can't wait to come back.
