About

Centrally located, yet a world apart, Devonfield is set on a 30 acre pastoral meadow shaded by graceful birch trees, with the rolling tapestry of the Berkshire Hills beyond. This 213 year old historic estate has been graciously updated and is filled with fine antiques. It is sophisticated, yet comfortable and inviting. Devonfield's upscale suites and bedrooms are all beautifully appointed, spacious and offer modern private baths. For your comfort, the Inn is completely air conditioned and provides wireless internet. The guest pantry is always open and is stocked with treats. There is a refrigerator and a microwave as well. A fireside (fall and winter) candlelit gourmet breakfast is served on fine china accompanied by classical music. Breakfast includes a bountiful buffet followed by a specially selected hot entree served tableside each day. Follow breakfast with a stroll through the flower-filled gardens, play a round of tennis or golf, or take a dip in the heated pool, and then enjoy the best in cultural and recreational activities in all seasons. Or, just relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, snooze in a hammock (or by a roaring fire), have afternoon refreshments or a complimentary cordial in the living room. Whatever you choose, you’ll find warm hospitality, relaxation, and rejuvenation to be the hallmark of your stay in this romantic country home.

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.


Devonfield is not a 5, it's a 10!

4.0 on June 14, 2017

This Inn is beautifully run by Bruce and Ronnie, both of whom answered my husband's many questions patiently! The picture of the house won me over on our first trip to the Berkshires but the piece of property it occupies is as lovely, -calming, comforting, green. Big plus: you stay in the quiet countryside while being very close in either direction to Stockbridge and Lee. And the breakfasts were delish. Recommend! Margot S.


Devonfield, in the heart of the Berkshires

4.6 on October 11, 2016

Devonfield Inn is well located for anyone who wants to explore the Berkshires in western Massachusetts. Its location in Lee is quiet, idyllic and very restful. The facility, an historic home once owned by a prominent industrialist, combines modern conveniences such as updated bath facilities with well-maintained original features of the home. The room we occupied was in a corner on the second floor with a great deal of sunlight and a beautiful view over the rear lawn toward the hills. The innkeepers, Bruce and Ronnie Singer, were attentive and helpful and their staff was guest-oriented.

Beautiful home in a lovely setting surrounded by trees and mountains in the distance. Short drive to Lee which is a quintessential Berkshire small town. Room very comfortable and clean. Only disappointment was the breakfast.

Weekend stay at Devonfield Inn

5 on March 30, 2016

We enjoyed a second wonderful stay at Devonfield Inn last weekend. The innkeepers are both gracious and helpful with suggestions for local restaurants and sites to visit. The breakfasts are tasty, well prepared and a delight to view. The location is both easy to find and convenient to many Berkshire places of interest. We look forward to our next stay.


Wonderful B&B in the Berkshires

Fabulous overnight stay in the Bershires. The owners were very personable, and gave good suggestions on places to eat and things to do. The house is absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend staying there.

  • Deposit Amount Required: A full deposit is required for one-night stays. A 50% deposit is required for two nights or longer stays.
  • Cancellations: Because of our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last-minute cancellation leaves little chance of filling the reserved space.

A service charge of $50.00 per room will be deducted from the deposit. Guests who check out before the last day of the reservation will be required to pay for the days reserved in full. We realize that situations may arise necessitating cancellation within the 14 day limit (30 days in July and August), and do sympathize, however we must maintain our business policy due to limited season and high accommodation demands. A partial refund may be possible only if we are able to re-book the room(s). We must have a deposit on all rooms in order to guarantee the reservation.
