This was my second time at Garden Gables and it was even better than the first. The staff is always available and so helpful in providing directions and tips on getting around and recommendations on top attractions. Truly, my sister and I enjoyed everything the Inn offered and hope we will be able to get reservations in the future. It appears that guests return year after year.

We have stayed in many inns and hotels in the Lenox area. If you are looking for a B&B that is hermetically sealed with a breakfast right out of microwave, you can find that in Lenox. But not at the Garden Gables Inn. And it is the big things, and the little things that the Garden Gables does, that makes staying there so delightful. Other people write about the wonderful breakfasts and cookies. They will probably mention the beautiful rooms with first class linens, or the delightful pool. Absolutely true. But it's the people who own the Garden Gables, their staff and the people who stay there that makes for a wonderful experience. The Inn attracts a wide range of guests (but no kids!) so it never feels like a nursing home as some B&B's do. Guests can stay to themselves or interact with other guests. Somedays we may decide to see a play, or go to museum or drive around. But most days, just staying around pool and soaking up all the great things the Garden Gables offers, is just right. P.S. If you are luck enough to be there during the summer when they are serving dinner, do not miss it!

The innkeeper made me feel "at home" and the entire staff was so friendly and did all they could to make my few days enjoyable. From the cookies and lemonade and iced tea and sherry always available for guests to the special requests granted at mealtime to the special seats obtained for concerts and reservations made at restaurants, this place is a cut above all others. I most certainly will return again after my warm welcome this year.
