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.

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.
