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.

Tiny room, still a dream

We were never in the Berkshires for the summer so we decided to book a few days at our favorite inn and stay in the only room we never visited. We have stayed in every room and even though room six is very small the ambience was perfect. Eeveryrhinf about the applegate inn is perfect and the Breakfast options are better than ever. We love the owners , Len and Gloria. Pam is as sweet as ever and does a great job making you feel at home. It’s so peaceful and beautiful at the applegate Inn

weekend in Lee

Great service. Room was small and bath was very small. Well kept and clean. Food was very good and several options. Liked having coffee available anytime. Refrigerator for guests. Lawn was beautiful. Pool needs attention with the deck surfaces. Easy access to Lee. More than enough parking space. If you are needing quiet rest this home is nice. Just be aware that the floors are old squeaky wood floors. So they are noisy. Overall it is a lovely place.

So comfortable!

We recently enjoyed our fourth visit to the Applegate Inn, the home of comfort and relaxation! The little things(morning newspaper, evening wine and cheese, brandy and chocolate in every room) and the big things (clean, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts, knowledgeable hosts) add up to a great experience.

nice weekend away in Lee

Great location. Beautiful historic home. Pam was excellent and made you fell very welcome. Food was good and fresh. Fresh baked cookies every day and access to coffee any time. Nice pool though we didn't use it. Walking distance to Lee. Great restaurants in area. Thanks for a great weekend.

Love this place!

We stayed at the Applegate Inn for two nights while going to events at Jacob’s Pillow and Tanglewood. The Inn is very convenient to both. Our stay was wonderful. There are beautiful grounds and a nice swimming pool; breakfasts are great. Rooms are spacious and very well appointed. They include amenities like bottled water, chocolates at night and nice toiletries. Innkeepers are wonderful and gracious. Highly recommended!

Another 4th of July at Applegate

Gloria and Len continue, as has always been the case, to provide a wonderful B&B experience in the Berkshires.

Perfect Getaway

My husband and I recently stayed at the Applegate Inn and we absolutely loved it. We were in the area to go to Tanglewood and see some of the museums, and the Applegate Inn was at the perfect location. The staff was wonderful, especially Pam, who took care of us as if we were family. The inn and grounds are quintessential New England. If you’re searching for a peaceful getaway with a “home away from home” feeling, look no further than the Applegate Inn.

Wonderful experience, will definitely come back!

The grounds are beautiful, not glitzy, but very real. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, felt like we were a quest in their home. Will look for an excuse to come back again, perhaps for a longer stay.

A lovely and relaxing weekend getaway

My husband and I very much enjoyed our three night stay at the Applegate Inn last weekend. The rooms, the food, the public areas, the grounds, all made for an outstanding experience. Pam, our host, was most cordial and helpful. Lots of amenities, including an outdoor heated pool, with loungers and umbrellas. This is an exceptional bed and breakfast and we will definitely return. Not only is there a lovely and spacious dining room, there is also a very large screened in porch with tables for outdoor breakfast. Cold spring water, soft drinks, wine and cheese, coffee and cookies.....what else could you ask for? The chef treated breakfast like a five-star restaurant. Food was beautifully presented and varied every day.
