About

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.

Relaxing Weekend

4.4 on December 06, 2017

Enjoyed our 2nd stay at this Inn, same room with great amenities. Hospitality is exceptional and you feel you are in a home away from home. Very accessible to a variety of activities. We are planning to return in June - we really enjoy Applegate Inn.


What a great find!

My husband and I love to stay at B&B's for our anniversary getaway. Since getting Celiac, it's been a bit more challenging (finding places to accommodate my diet and local places to eat.) This was the BEST find for everything we need! Not only were they accommodating at Applegate, the food was delicious as well! Pam was wonderful and recommended a lot of things to do in the area. There were MANY restaurants locally and a few towns away that provided a gluten free menu. We will defiantly be going back again!


Wonderful stay!

My partner and I wanted a quiet, relaxing, and warm location for our honeymoon, and this was absolutely everything we could have hoped for. I can't overstate how wonderful the breakfast was each morning, and Pam was a delightful host. We'll definitely be coming back.


A Real Gem in The Berkshires

5 on October 30, 2017

I can't say enough nice things about the Applegate Inn! We arrived on a cold, dreary day and Pam welcomed us warmly and gave us a tour of the Inn. We had spoken on the phone about the rooms, and our room was spacious and well appointed -- even with a soaking tub for me! We enjoyed wine and cheese with the other guests in the living room, and then headed out for a wonderful dinner at a restaurant Pam recommended. We both slept incredibly well on our very comfortable king canopy bed, and woke well rested. The Inn must have great sound insulation because we didn't hear a peep from the other guests! Breakfast was served buffet style, and we had plenty to choose from. The scones were especially yummy. If we are ever in the Berkshires again, we will definitely stay in The Applegate Inn. It exceeded all my expectations!

Gorgeous Bed and Breakfast Inn in Lee. Beautiful rooms ( stayed in the 2 bedroom suite in the carriage house which was incredible). The breakfast was absolutely delicious and the staff were wonderful.


Very Nice Stay

4.8 on September 07, 2017

My wife and I decided to spend a weekend in the Berkshires and we consulted with the Registry for a B&B recommendation. Applegate was very nice choice. Immaculate with grounds to walk around and a heated pool which is always nice. Pam, the Inn keeper, was very helpful and gave us a good insight into the area as well as nearby restaurants to try. She was always available and very gracious. Breakfast was delicious and the formal dining setting added charm. The common living room and additional sunroom was inviting with tons of books and board games to keep you busy. Highly recommended.


Another wonderful weekend at our favorite Berkshires Inn!

Pam, Sarah and the other staff were super nice, breakfasts were homemade delights and the cozy atmosphere throughout the Inn made us feel right at home. Bonus: an 85o heated pool and beautiful gardens.


Home away from home

We love coming back to the Applegate Inn every year. We are always welcomed and treated like visiting relatives.


A pleasant stay

We felt welcomed in this well-restored house. Wished there was an elevator to bring our bags up to the third floor.

As noted rooms and service was excellent...breakfast was very disappointing as selection was very limited and quality of cooking was disappointing....expected more from them as they rooms are costly
