Wonderful time

The Inn is located right in the heart of town. The rooms are great and the food is out of this world. There is alot of history that also goes with your stay. We can't wait to return.

We spent 2 wonderful nights at this inn. The innkeepers were warm and welcoming, the inn is lovely and the breakfasts are delicious. There is a bar and piano lounge - a real treat to return to at the end of the evening. This is one of the nicest places to stay in the Berkshires.

Lovely Stay in the Berkshires

I recently stayed at the Gateways Inn for the first time and I am enchanted! Stepping into the lobby is a step back in time. Victorian architecture and detail abound. Each room is named for a Shakespearean character. My room was clean and beautifully appointed. An in room refrigerator disguised as a piece of furniture... I almost missed it. My room included a Keruig coffee maker and cozy robe. The bathroom was large and had every ammenity I could ask for, including make-up remover wipes. The large piano bar featured a clarinitist who was top rate and a special menu. The breakfast was included: homemade granola, a strata with goat cheese one morning and a fritatta the next, cheeses, fruits, homemade breads and rolls, yogurts, coffee, juice. Everything was delicious. The service was attentive without being intrusive. I will definitely return to the Gateways Inn.

Very nice and convenient to downtown. The only thing I did not like was the public part of the inn is very dark and even at breakfast the blinds were closed.

Charming Inn, Great Location

4.2 on April 27, 2012

The inn is under new ownership, and it seems to be in capable hands. A very nice room, and you can walk to everything in Lenox. It is also centrally located for excursions in the area. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive. The Inn seemed more like a small boutique hotel than a bed and breakfast. Being Lenox, of course, it doesn't come cheap, but it is a nice treat for a special occasion. If you are a meat lover, however, you won't find any included in the extensive breakfast offerings.

Laid-back luxury!

Spacious, beautifully appointed room, that was spotlessly clean. Stellar service. Innkeepers were friendly and fun. Michele is an awesome chef! Piano bar was a happening place on Saturday night with many guests, visitors, and live music. A wonderful inn for any occasion!

Incredibly Well Taken Care Of

4.8 on March 31, 2012

I recently had the joy of spending 6 nights at The Gateways Inn. Michele & Eiran Gazit have such pleasant, cheerful, positive and friendly dispositions. Michele provided the most delicious breakfasts and in an incredibly flexible manner. I'm still thinking about her homemade granola. The whole grain organic blueberry pancakes were pretty amazing too. Mmm! While I was there I needed to sign some paperwork and have it faxed back and forth for a loan approval. The Eiran and his staff were incredibly professional and amazingly helpful with the process. I was worried that it would be difficult but they made it smooth, simple and stress free. I felt so well cared for and so comfortable that I am returning in May. It is without hesitation that I recommend The Gateways Inn in Lenox!

great potential

We were the only guests for the 2 nites we were there and as the inn had recently changed hands, their liquor license had not been approved, the resteraunt was closed. This being said, breakfast were outstanding and the staff was accommodating. (We never met the owners). Rooms were lovely, location great.
