Applegate Inn

279 W Park Street , Lee, MA 1238 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


Built in the 1920's by a New York surgeon for use as a summer estate, Applegate is set amid towering pines and manicured lawns. Rose gardens, perennial beds, and mature apple trees cover the six acre property. A circular drive leads to the two-story pillared Georgian colonial where, inside, you will find Applegate tastefully decorated with oriental carpets, fine antiques, and quality reproductions. Its comfortable elegance invites you in. The inn is centrally air conditioned with individual room controls. The guest pantry is always available with its home baked goods and other treats. There is a refrigerator and a microwave as well. Each evening, wine and cheese are offered to guests in the library/living room, complete with a baby grand piano and cozy fireplace. There is also a sun parlor game/TV room with a gas fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player, game table and a small video library. A candlelit gourmet breakfast with varying hot entrees and a bountiful buffet is served in the dining room in front of the fireplace, where candles flicker from the polished antique silver candelabras that are set on each table. Classical music fills the air while breakfast is elegantly served on antique bone china with crystal stemware. 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.

Perfect weekend locale, even if the off-season

We spent a fantastic two nights here. The place is immaculate with endless pictures and chotchkies to look at. We were in room 2, and absolutely loved the fireplace (its such a nice touch). Breakfasts were fantastic and filled us up for the day. We were talking about how good the cheeses were that they put out at 5pm a day after we checked out. The weather was cold and grey, which made us even happier to have such a place to stay for the weekend.

Amazing B&B

My husband and I came in to Applegate as a part of our minimoon. We received a warm welcome from Pam as soon as we came in. She gave us a tour of the house. She gave us all the informed and tips that all came in handy. Our room was phenomenal. We were so amazed at how our room is exactly what we pictured and wanted as a memory of our wedding getaway. We had room 8 and will be staying here again. 5 o'clock wine and cheese was so nice and we took our time enjoying it by the fireplace. Breakfast was outstanding, so delicious. We highly recommend this place. Pam was so great and made sure we had all that we needed. My husband and I had such an amazing and relaxing time. We felt like we stayed with a relative. There is nothing bad to say. It was an amazing experience from beginning to end. Thank you for everything Pam. We will be back.

A must visit B&B

Pam was a gracious host. The extra little touches were fantastic...chocolates and brandy in the room...the afternoon wine and cheese. The breakfast was amazing. We are looking forward to returning next year to have another romantic and relaxing weekend away.

The room was beyond clean and excellent. The service was great! Everything was within driving distance. My overall stay was the best and I'm looking forward to going back.

Berkshire weekend

We arrived hoping to snowshoe but Mother Nature conspired against us. No snow meant that we were free to enjoy this cozy inn with congenial company, excellent breakfasts and a feeling that we were being pampered. Our hostess, Pam, helped us find great alternate activities including a bike trail that allowed us to walk through the beautiful area without sinking to our ankles in mud. She steered us to two excellent restaurants for dinner. Lovely weekend with good friends in a wonderful setting!

Awesome B&B

Outstanding apartment on a B&B setting, very accommodating for early morning breakfast request as we had to ski and very warm presence with the innkeeper Pam!

Always the best

We’ve now been in every room but one ( and we’ll have that covered this summer ). This time I brought my two sons ( and future daughter in law) along for the weekend. Relaxing , delicious breakfast , and wonderful ambient. Simply magical.

Excellent weekend getaway

Very pleasant stay. Wonderful service. Would have preferred to order breakfast, versus having one menu. No TV in room -- cable box being replaced.

A Wonderful Stay at a Wonderful Inn!

4.8 on December 13, 2017

I whisked my husband away for a snowy weekend getaway. Everything was absolutely wonderful! Booking was extremely easy, and I got an email right away. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Pam. The house was decorated beautifully for the holidays and felt very welcoming. I had asked for wine and cheese upon arrival, and it was there and was perfect! Our room was spacious, clean, and luxurious with a mini fridge and water bottles. We spent a restful night and breakfast in the morning was ample and absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend the Applegate Inn and can't wait to visit again.

Wonderful holiday stay at Applegate Inn

Our second stay at the Inn was every bit as enjoyable as the first. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, the room meticulously clean, the breakfast just a pure delight. And the innkeeper -- Pam -- is always so accommodating, helpful, knowledgable, and a joy to talk with and be around.. Will back for another visit in the not-too-distant future.
