A wonderful stay and warm hospitality

We could not be more pleased with our two-day stay at the Red Door B&B in Lee! Our room accommodation was clean and comfortable, our breakfasts were extraordinary and sumptuous, our location was most convenient to Tanglewood and all the other dining and attractions in the Berkshires, and our hosts Sue and Al were impeccably hospitable, welcoming and kind. We look forward to our next visit and commend the Red Door to all who enjoy the experience of a small and intimate B&B.

Superior B&B; great hosts and superb breakfast

Spent two nights at Red Door last on recommendation of a friend. It exceeded our expectations. From moment we arrived, owners were friendly and helpful about everything from restaurant recommendations to finding the back road to Tanglewood avoiding post concert crush. The two breakfasts we had were each different and each delicious. Room was lovely and ability to walk to several fine downtown restaurants was a plus.

Thanks for a great weekend!

We stayed at The Red Door last weekend and had an amazing experience! We felt so welcome, from check-in (we had a lot of traffic on the way up and so had to do a late check-in, but Susan and Al were so accommodating. It was great to feel relaxed the second we came in!) to breakfast (so delicious, both days, and all local - made us feel at home!). Since we're both dog people, we got to meet their very friendly dog. The house itself is beautiful, as is the outside garden area. We stayed in the beautiful and SPACIOUS summer room. All in all, it was a great home base for our adventures in the Berkshires, and we hope to be back soon.

Romantic Rejuvination

5 on June 24, 2018

The Red Door Inn of Canandaigua was the destination for our first anniversary trip. The inn itself was astounding and is decorated with absolute care in an antique-chic fashion - complete with gilded mirrors and fashionable botanical flair. While the building itself was impeccable, the true gem of this destination is the inn keeper herself, Kathryn. She was with us whenever we needed guidance and welcomed us with tailored recommendations for the area. Breakfast every morning felt like a family gathering, but with the style of fine china and candlelight. Our favorite moments at The Red Door Inn were spent on the wrap around veranda watching the sunset with a bottle of wine.

Anniversary weekend

My. husband and I spent a week at the Red Door and it was a very positive experience. Susan and Al were very hospitable and accommodating. The room was spacious and clean and the breakfasts were fabulous. It is centrally located making all of the Berkshire attractions easily accessible. We particularly enjoyed lingering over breakfast with the other guests. Ellen, Philadelphia

The Red Door B+B was perfect for what we were looking for - small, convenient, clean and "homey" feeling. The hosts were perfect in their combination of being very friendly/congenial without being intrusive. The rooms were very accurately depicted on the website, so were exactly in line with our expectations. This is not the fanciest place in the Berkshires, but we were not looking for ornate decorations. Breakfast was very good and mindfully arranged, and the smaller size of the B+B encouraged conversation with the other guests which we thoroughly enjoyed. Location was very convenient for walking into town. There were some other very nice personal touches made by our hosts. We would absolutely plan on staying here again!

Thank you for your generous and kind review! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay as we enjoyed hosting you. Hope to see you again!

You'll Love the Red Door B & B

5 on July 25, 2017

My husband and I spent last weekend enjoying some of what the Berkshires have to offer from the comfort and convenience of the perfectly situated Red Door B & B. The Summer Room is lovely, spacious and bright. We so enjoyed Susan's amazing (really!) breakfasts and Al's delicious coffee. Most of all, we appreciated Susan & Al's warm and inviting hospitality as well as the greetings of their friendly dogs! We look forward to visiting Susan & Al and the Red Door B & B again as often as we can.

A real find!

We concur with all of the positive reviews already on the site. Al and Susan are a delight--very warm and helpful. The rooms are spacious and appointed to meet all of one's needs. Our bed was very comfortable--and the breakfasts are really fit for a king. We can't recall having better breakfasts anywhere. This inn is not suitable for someone who cannot handle stairs, but for anyone else this place is a real find. We definitely hope to come back next season and for years to come.

About the innkeepers

We have always enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life, other cultures and varied backgrounds. We often shared our home for conference attendees and enjoyed their company. So when we decided to move to the Berkshires, we thought a B&B would be a perfect fit!
