Berkshire Mountain House

150 Berkshire Way , Stephentown, NY 12168 USA (Show map)

About

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.

Great views of the mountains, great breakfast, dog-friendly, pond that swimming dogs will love

5 on August 27, 2015

The Berkshire Mountain House, on the NY side of the Berkshires, is our favorite vacation place for a few reasons: 1) Not only are dogs allowed, but this is a GREAT place for people to bring their dog! Our dog Mavis loves to swim, and the pond on the property is perfect for her. It's big enough for her to swim, it's safe, and it's a nice walk down the hill from the hotel (maybe a quarter mile or a little less). 2) Mona is a great host, very charming and gracious, and a pleasure to talk to. She also is quite the chef! Among the many excellent dishes she makes for breakfast, one of her specialities is a delicious Blueberry French Toast that she bakes in the over like a scuffle, including carmelized pecans that make this dish amazing! And we really appreciate that she makes it for us because we like it so much! 3) The views of the Berkshire Mountains are amazing from the windows and the grounds of the hotel. 4) The rooms are very nicely designed and supplied with many nice touches by Mona, including her choices of curtains, soaps, furniture, and more. Very charming.

We were guests there 8/10-8/12/2015, our second visit and I highly recommend the Berkshire Mountain House. A lovely setting, and Mona is most hospitable and welcoming. I couldn't get the ratings scale to reflect that "On-site dining" is outstanding but I want to emphasize that. I have been in many B&Bs but none had the extensive and original breakfast that we were offered by Mona. The service is also "outstanding"-- we look forward to our next visit -- Maryellen Mastriani


A wonderful B&B in a gorgeous setting

My girlfriend and I spent a lovely weekend in Mona's bed & breakfast and it couldn't have been more wonderful. Mona greeted us on our arrival and was so gracious and friendly. The room was even more beautiful than the pictures and the breakfast was a large spread including delicious crepes. Thanks, Mona -- We'll be back!


Comfortable and Relaxing B&B

Mona is a great B&B proprietor, the setting is beautiful, and the place is great. Nice trails through the woods just outside the door.


Lovely Weekend at the Berkshire Mountain House

5 on July 02, 2015

We recently enjoyed a three night stay at the Berkshire Mountain House. We were welcomed by our gracious host Mona & some lovely wine! We stayed in a two bedroom apartment in the Meadow House which included a large furnished kitchen & laundry, two bedrooms/baths, and living/dining areas. There are sliding glass doors onto a large deck with incredible views.Everything was clean, comfortable & convenient. The breakfasts were excellent - lots of fresh fruit & juices, excellent coffee, two types of oatmeal, fruit compote, pancakes,eggs, breads & little cakes. More than we were able to sample! Mona visited with us at the end of each breakfast & offered suggestions of things to do and places to see. She really enjoys getting to know her guests & making sure they have the best possible experience of her inn and the area. Looking forward to another visit in the future.


Lovely property; Great stay

We had a terrific stay at the Berkshire Mountain House. Mona was welcoming and helpful, even preparing breakfast a bit early so that we could get to the ski slopes at opening time. Our room was comfortable, and the views were spectacular. The proximity to Jiminy Peak made this a great find. We will certainly be returning in the future.


Wonderful time at Berkshire Mountain House

4.6 on October 27, 2014

Food was excellent - home-cooked, traditional and imaginative, large variety of items and delicious. Our room was the Beethoven Suite - it has large, double sliding glass doors opening onto a private deck with wonderful views of the Berkshire mountains, especially beautiful during the foliage season. Quiet, out of the way but close to a great restaurant where we enjoyed an excellent dinner. Our host was very nice and helpful and we quite enjoyed her company. Highly recommended.


Great place to stay in the Berkshires

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


A great place to stay!

4.8 on November 02, 2013

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!


Late August Berkshire Mountain Getaway

5 on September 08, 2013

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.
