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.

Terrific Inn

5 on April 25, 2017

As usual our stay at The Applegate Inn was great. The room, #8, was big, comfortable, a king size bed, terrific whirlpool tub, gas fireplace and a balcony. Breakfast both mornings was terrific in the dining room. Gloria and Len the owners, Pam and the rest of the staff were so very friendly and helpful as always. The Inn is close to main street in Lee, where the are a few nice place to eat and some interesting stores, as well as being close to Stockbridge, the Rockwell Museum and Lee Premium Outlets. This was our 3rd time staying there and we will continue to go back.

Our Favorite Spot in Lee.

The Applegate Inn is a terrific inn. The rooms are very nice, the breakfast is delicious, nightly wine and cheese hour is a nice way to meet the owners and other guests and the location is convenient to several different things in the berkshires. we have stayed there 3 times in the last couple of years and are planning to go back again in the spring.

Amazing Stay!

My wife and I stayed at Applegate Inn for a getaway treat and enjoyed everything about it. From the jetted tub and comfortable robes to the breakfast for two in the morning everything was perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

Get away for a weekend.

The location of the B&B was perfect for dinner and shopping. I wish it was nicer out so we could have enjoyed the golf course across the street. Staff was friendly and inviting.

Long Weekend in Lee, MA

Beautiful inn, cross-country skiing nearby, and great restaurants within walking distance. We'll be back!

Very comfortable and a great hostess!

We only stayed one night and would've loved to stay another! The hostess made our stay so comfortable. We loved the amenities- wine and cheese, cookies, games, snowshoes, etc. I probably wouldn't use the fancy bathtub next time- not enough hot water to fill it and it wasn't well cleaned. But really- it was a great stay.

The perfect Berkshire escape.

Everything about the Applegate Inn is relaxed, comfort and luxury. Service is super friendly and the rooms delightful. The bed in my room was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in ! Everything is thought about to make your stay comfortable, from the wine and cheese to the guest pantry. I truly delightful place to stay.

Great place for a weekend getaway

4.8 on January 29, 2017

We stayed at the Applegate Inn for 2 nights during the week. The room was very spacious and comfortable. It even had a wet bar and dishes/utensils for any leftovers or travel treats you might have with you. Gloria and Len were friendly, gracious hosts, and AnneMarie made delicious breakfasts both days. The location is convenient to downtown Lee, where we had dinner both nights. We plan another visit in the warmer weather so that we can enjoy the pool and patio.

A great weekend break!

The home is spacious and welcoming. The room (room 2) was clean, cozy yet spacious with a large walk-in closet for us to store our bags. The bathroom was clean and spacious as well. The food was delicious and accommodating for a gluten free gal. We did the "romance package" and had a reservation made for us at Chez Nous that included tax and gratuity. The food there was superb! My husband and I enjoyed the little pantry that had a water station as well as stocked refrigerator with soft drinks and water bottles. We didn't have to go buy a gallon of water for our room which we usually have to do at hotels so that was nice. We felt at home and enjoyed our weekend. We would highly recommend Applegate Inn to anyone and hope to be back next year.

Wonderful visit

This is a beautiful property, and the innkeepers were very cordial and welcoming. Wine and cheese in the parlor in the afternoons, coffee and fresh cookies in the pantry, lovely decorations throughout. The breakfasts were terrific, all freshly prepared. We can't wait to visit again in warmer weather when we can sit out on the terrace by the pool.
