Very lovely

4.2 on August 22, 2014

A gracious home, with a beautiful piano room, library, and small outside terrace under a wisteria arbor. Good breakfast with excellent coffee and charming hosts. A perfect place to stay for Tanglewood concerts.Walking distance to some excellent restaurants in downtown Lenox, too.


Whistler's Inn

5 on July 24, 2014

This was the perfect B&B for our extended weekend trip to the Berkshires. The location is great (next to a beautiful churchyard, very short walk into the center of Lenox), house was charming, porch area and gardens were lovely. Our room (the Captain's Room) was -- as expected -- quite small, but I think well worth the room rate for a chance to stay in this inn. If I return to the Berkshires -- and I hope to! -- I will try to stay at Whistler's Inn again.

Half Way Point for Two Friends

5 on November 05, 2013

I choose Whistler's Inn because it was half-way point between VT and CT for two friends to meet. This was a girl's get-a-way weekend and we were both delighted with the accommodations. We were able to get twin beds, breakfast and a charming place to sit, talk, relax and drink Port and/or coffee for a reasonable price. During the day we walked to Lenox Village and Kennedy Park so we were exhausted and the quiet of the B&B was welcoming. The beds were very comfortable, the food was delicious and the advice we received from the property owners made our stay complete. We dined where they suggested and toured some of their favorite places. We will definitely meet at Whistler's Inn again!!


Inn with character

4.2 on October 18, 2013

I had a very relaxing 3-day-stay at the Whistler's Inn. The hosts are very welcoming and shared a lot about the history of the Inn and sites to see in the area.


Great value

4.4 on October 16, 2013

Close to town, walking distance, good breakfast, clean rooms.


Ideal B&B

4.0 on October 07, 2013

Whistlers Inn is an ideal B&B in an ideal town. The most outstanding feature is the family who owns and runs the Inn. They are lovely, engaging people who really care about your what brings you to the area and your stay. Breakfast was a nice range of bread and pasterie treats, but the setting in the large dining room with conversation was the best part. If you are looking for privacy and an interesting twist to the expected antiques-look to staying in the Africa room in the accompanying barn like building next door-it's super cool.


Bed, Great but breakfast, disappointing!

3.2 on September 23, 2013

Great ambiance, cordial and friendly staff but menu did not meet expectations. Nothing unusual of "oh so memorable" as previous experiences at other B&Bs.


Enjoyable and interesting

4.0 on September 03, 2013

The Inn was inviting, friendly, clean, restful and interesting. The owners were gracious, warm and made us feel at home!!
