Amy: Our 2nd stay at your inn was every bit enjoyable as the first. The room was light, airy and delightful. The breakfasts were excellent. We especially enjoyed the Parmesan cheese "baskets". Thank you and your staff for your hospitality, and we hope to see you again. Rosalie and Mac.

Beautiful inn. Loved the porches; the many little spots to sit and talk or read... Fantastic breakfast! The staff was extremely friendly and happy to help, rooms lovely and clean if a bit small. Fantastic location for exploring the town or seeing a concert. Would definitely return!

The Rookwood Inn is a charming, comfortable B&B in Lenox, MA. Amy is a wonderful hostess--she happily accommodated my dietary needs, even as they changed over the course of my stay. Rookwood is walking distance from town, where one can shop and dine at great little bistros and restaurants. I give Rookwood an A+!

Love, love, love this place. It's quaint, very well kept, and the staff make the whole experience incredible. Amy the inkeeper knows everything about the whole area - so she is the BEST resource to know where/when to go either with kids or as a couple. We've gone here at least a half dozen times in the last few years, and we've even taken our toddler. They had a port-a-crib ready for her, gave her her own breakfast which she loved, had a high chair ready, and just treated her like a princess! And she definitely felt like she was in a castle! We've stayed in 3 different rooms and have loved all of them. We've never had any complaints! I'm vegetarian and my husband is an avid meat eater and they always make amazing meals for us! Also - they don't let your coffee get cold! My husband went out to change a diaper, by the time he came back, they had decided he needed new coffee ;) - they are just great.

The title says it all. They really take the time to fill and exceed your needs. That's attention to detail. They are as sweet as fine chocolates. I eat the sugar free ones. Go and enjoy your stay.

After a lovely sojourn in a rustic B&B in Vermont, the Rookwood Inn provided a luxurious change of pace. Our room was pure Eastlake, beautifully coordinated antique furniture and completely comfortable. Breakfast was delightful--a pleasure augmented by a wonderful screened-in porch that invited morning coffee and evening drinks. Amy, our innkeeper, was not only welcoming but was a font of wisdom about where to eat and swim in the area. When we next visit Western Massachusetts, we will definitely stay at Rookwood again.
