Innkeepers Mona and Lee knew immediately what the name of their inn should be. Inspired by the spectacular, panoramic views of the Berkshire Mountains, the inn was aptly named "Berkshire Mountain House". The inn is a romantic, contemporary bed and breakfast with broad decks and walls of glass, which take advantage of the views. It is situated high on a hill surrounded by 50 acres of rolling meadows and forest with walking trails and a spring fed pond.

We've been staying at the Berkshire Mountain House for the past 4-5 years and will be staying there every year that we and it is there! Mona's breakfasts are phenomanal. Every morning there is a little something different, but the favorites are always there. The accommodations are superb. Mona stays overnight in every room when it is first ready for occupancy to make sure the amenities are what she would expect and, therefore, there is everything you could need or want. We're happy that we found it on the internet! The Fishmans

My wife and I stayed at the Berkshire Mountain House to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. The location and property was beautiful, complete with walking trails and a small fish pond! It was drivable to all the places we wanted to go (Bennington VT, the Harney and Sons tea store in Millerton NY, and of course the Berkshires). The breakfasts were consistently excellent with a variety of choices (fruit, a couple kinds of homemade oatmeal, bagels, toast, etc. always available plus some specialty dishes). Our room was clean and well maintained, and a great value especially compared to the steep prices for B&B rooms across the border in MA. No wireless internet access in our room (not a problem, just something most B&Bs have nowadays). Staying at B&Bs is a yearly tradition for us, and this one was one of our favorites. I strongly recommend it!

I was raised just over the hill from the Berkshire Mountain House although it was not a B&B at that point. My son was getting married in New Lebanon (5 miles away) and it happened to our wedding anniversary as well so we wanted a romantic and secluded retreat. We found the BMH on line and I knew exactly where it was so we decided to give it a try. It exceeded our expectations in every aspect! If you are looking for quiet seclusion yet minutes to major roadways and local attractions, this is for you. The price is surprisingly modest compared to many B&B's we have stayed in. The food is quite good and dining on the deck in the early morning looking out over the hills and valleys is fabulous. We will definitely return and highly recommend The Berkshire Mountain House.

Leave your belt at home, it won't fit after having the unbelievable french toast. It shouldn't even be called french toast. It is its own creation.

My wife & I arrived at the House after a long windy track of an un-made road/lane to get there. As soon as we got there the Hostess & owner of the House, Mona, welcomed us & ushered us into the lounge offering all manner of refreshments, we settled to join her in a glass of white wine that then became a bottle. The BMH is what I would describe as bohemian, as was our hostess, Mona. But she was utterly charming. Overall we loved it & would strongly recommend it. We look forward to staying there again & delighting in Mona's company.

We went to Berkshire mountain house for our anniversary and it was just perfect. This is a peaceful, Cozy and comfortable place with excellent breakfast and a spectacular mountain view. Mona the owner is fun and cheerful and has very good tips for places around. It is not far from tanglewood if you are into classical music. And there are tons of great hikes around if you are up for it.We are definitely planning to go back sometime in the future.

My partner and I (along with our dogs) had a wonderful stay at the Berkshire Mountain House over the July 4th holiday weekend. The innkeeper Mona could not have been nicer or more welcoming. The first evening she even invited us to join her and her friends for a cook out at the inn! We met some awesome and friendly folks and got some tips for things to check out in the Berkshires which was great as we'd not been in the area before. Mona also went out of her way to get us set up with dinner reservations by using her "insider" pull. The inn itself is lovely and the property is amazing. There is a nice little path down to her pond which is big enough for both human and dog swimming. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast blew us away. We lingered for well over an hour just enjoying the tasty treats, the gorgeous view, and the very friendly company of Mona and some of her neighborhood friends. If you are looking for a relaxing stay, away from the hustle and bustle, I would highly recomend the Berkshire Mountain House.

Firstly, Mona is terrific! She is most accomodating. Our B&B had booked the wrong date and we sprung on Mona last minute. She made it seem like we had booked well in advance. She was very welcoming, friendly, and everything you want in a B&B host. The B&B is in a very quiet location with a very nice Berkshires view. Highly recommend.

The Berkshire Mountain House is a lovely Bed & Breakfast located in a quiet place surrounded by the woods and mountains. It's a great place to relax and to enjoy nature. It's a dog friendly Inn and our dog LOVED to explore the woods and the lake that surround the property. When we arrived, my partner and I and our dog Buddy were greeted by Mona, the owner of the inn, with a big smile and a glass of wine. Mona told us that she had upgraded our room which was very nice. The room was lovely and very clean with a nice view of the mountains. The full breakfast was exotic and delicious. It had different kinds of cheeses and breads. The coffee is very good and the eggs cooked to perfection, and there were also some interesting surprises, like the Indian dish - from India - that was a very unusual food for breakfast but it was delicious. Mona is a very gracious host and will help you with suggestions of things to do around the nearby towns that surrounds the area. We had a great time and will definitely be back. Thank you Mona & Yuri (Her lovely black lab)! Leo, Gerry & Buddy PS: Forgot to mention that they also offer FREE Wi-Fi
