A Summer Weekend in the Berkshires

5 on August 16, 2018

Arriving at the Devonfield Inn is like coming home away from home. Our 4th stay here. We love so much about this inn. First and foremost, the innkeepers Jim & Doug are fabulous hosts. The Penthouse Suite and Roosevelt Suite are our favorite rooms. Breakfast is something to look forward to. After sightseeing, lounging around the beautiful pool is a treat. We had tickets to Jacob's Pillow and saw a revival of The Member of the Wedding at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Perfect 3 days.


A gem!

We stayed here in July and and the new owners Jim and Doug were friendly and very helpful, and will make perfect hosts! The grounds and pool were lovely and the breakfast outstanding! And it is in an ideal location in the Berkshires. We will be back!


great owners

Jim and Doug were fantastic !! So friendly and accommodating in every way. They helped with finding restaurants in town and where the Outlets were. Upon arriving, Jim showed us the grounds and where all the amenities were. Doug was so helpful when we were looking to go out one night. He printed out some info on his computer to help us find someplace to go. They we just great owners and great hosts. Breakfast was served every morning with homemade meals that were outstanding. This inn is a perfect place to go if you are looking to relax with peace and quiet. My wife and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Truly amazing!

We recently stayed at Devonfield- it was an amazing, first class experience. Beautiful accommodations, great breakfasts and wonderful hospitality. Best B&B I have experienced.


A Great Berkshire Find!

5 on July 05, 2018

We spent the final night of a week long road trip on the east coast at the Devonfield Inn. It was the best accommodations of the entire trip. Calling ahead, site unseen, is sometimes risky. But we were so pleasantly surprised. From the minute we drove up and saw the lovely house, surrounded by beautiful views, we knew we had found a great spot. Doug and Jim made us feel instantly welcome. Doug gave my husband and me a list of places to see and restaurants to try, and made it clear that we were welcome to enjoy everything the inn had to offer. I spent several hours on the sunporch, just reading and enjoying the view. The room was very comfortable,and the breakfast the next morning was outstanding. What I like best about the Inn was that it was close enough to surrounding towns and attractions to get to easily,but you didn’t feel as if you were staying right in town with all the other tourists. I would highly recommend staying at the Devonfield Inn When visiting the Berkshires.


Ski getaway with the kids

5 on February 22, 2018

We spent 3 nights at the Devonfield in the Queen Wilhelmina cottage. We absolutely loved it! The cottage was large and had a beautiful fireplace that we used each night. It was clean and cozy. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. We wanted to introduce our kids (15&12) to the B&B experience and this was the perfect place to do it. Bruce and the staff were very friendly and breakfast each morning was great! We skied at Butternut and it was an easy drive. We will definitely be staying here again!


Comfy, welcoming and warm experience

This was our first time at the inn but we were very happy we chose this pretty gem in the Berkshires. I immediately felt the warmth upon entering the lobby. We meet really nice folks and created a new friendship during the stay. We really loved our whole experience. If I may make only one recommendation, the hot entrees at breakfast should have possibly one or two more choices.


No need to look further

We recently stayed at the Devonfield Inn for the second time. To our delight, there had been no changes. Our hosts, Bruce and Ronnie, were charming, attentive and helpful in every way possible. The inn itself can only be described as everyone’s ideal mental picture of what a B&B should be. Built in the early 1900’s and upgraded through the years with just enough of the modernized creature comforts to appeal to just about everyone without losing the charm of earlier times. Breakfasts are ample, farm fresh and over the top delicious. Regardless of the season, we could not think of staying anywhere else. Steve & Harriette


Perfect retreat in the Berkshires

4.6 on October 09, 2017

The Devonfield Inn is set in beautiful gardens and the property is just stunning. Our hosts, Bruce and Ronnie could not have been more accommodating. The cottage where we stayed was fully equipped and very well furnished, we were only sorry our tour operator had booked us in for just 1 night. The breakfast was superb and they would have received full marks for catering, but they didn't do dinner. Thanks for a great stay. Would highly recommend.
