The Summer White House

The White House was a great find! It is conveniently located and we were given many tips about hikes and events in the area. Most important the Inn was gracious as were the hosts. I would add more but no space.


An Excellent place to meet family and make friends

A tasteful and warm Victorian home with beautiful art work. Some of it for sale. Close to Stockbridge, a great town.


Cozy, warm, centering

5 on November 11, 2013

I took my 17-year-old daughter to spend a couple of days here so that she could have peace and quiet as she wrote her college essays; I'm an academic and worked on a paper, available to her for moral support and dialogue when she needed it. It was perfect! We felt well-taken-of, the room was cozy and conducive to contemplation and writing (for both of us!), the breakfasts were excellent. My daughter finished her essays, I made significant progress on the paper, and we headed back to Boston feeling a sense of accomplishment, connection (to each other), and well-being.

4.2 on September 08, 2013

The room was very spacious with a large closet, desk, sofa, chair and canopy bed. Had an ample chest of drawers too. Very quiet, shaded garden in back was perfect for reading. The owner Frank and his proprietor Melissa could not have been more charming. They saw to our every need, and Frank entertained us each morning with his delightful stories. Classical music was always playing during breakfast. Right across the street from the Lenox Library, within easy walking distance of everything in town. Would definitely stay there again.


Fabulous place.

4.4 on August 29, 2013

This B&B was beyond my expectations in terms of convenience to Tanglewood, decor, service and friendliness. I would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Lenox, MA

A very pleasant stay

4.6 on August 13, 2013

This is an attractive B&B with unusually large rooms and a very comfortable bed. There is a fine breakfast buffet. The location is very convenient, right in the center of town and only a 5 minute drive to Tanglewood.


Lovely weekend
