First time.staying at the inn. The room and in we're so very charming. The breakfast...wow!!! Gormet to say the least. It's the small touches that make or break small inns and let me say this inn went over the top for us. You see I proposed to my girlfriend while there over the weekend. The owner went out and bought her roses!! Seriously, who does that? The evening wine and cheese was terrific with a fantastic assorment of snacks. One last thing...homemade chocolate chip cookies and brownies at night!!! Fantastic, friendly owners in a quaint and charming inn. highly recommend!!!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Federal House In!. The hosts are very nice and highly care about the well being of the guests. Martha and Ken make you feel like at home while leaving you also privacy. The Inn is gorgeous, entirely renovated and offers top of the line comfort. At anytime during the day there is coffee, soft drinks & cookies available. At 5 pm we were offered wine and cheese appetizer and we sat on the front porch. Our stay was delightful and we will certainly come back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed over this past weekend..4/7-4/8. I proposed to my girlfriend while there and the owners went way out of their way to make this momentous occasion even more memorable with their own special heartfelt touches. ( Thank you from the bottom of our hearts...B&G ) We were truly overwhelmed. The inn itself is exceptionally quaint with beautiful rooms. Breakfast was not breakfast...it was a feast...wow is all I can say! I would highly recommend this beautiful inn for a comfortable stay in the Berkshires.

Immaculate property and Marsha and Ken are the ultimately attentive innkeepers. If you are in western Mass., look no further and be prepared for amazing breakfasts. The Federal House is just NOT like home! Skip and Suzy

We were happy to return to Federal House Inn, in the same room as 25 years ago after our wedding. The breakfasts were delicious.

Nothing is missing at the Federal House Inn in Lee. Located between down Lee and Stockbridge, Marcia and Ken offer spotless, upscale accommodations, great personal touches throughout, and an incredible breakfast included with each stay. Wine and snacks in the evening are also included, and the overall ambience of the inn is something to savor. Our room had a remote operated gas fireplace and spectacular four poster bed, step-up private bathroom and a great view past the front columns onto the sweeping lawn. We loved it here and will definitely be back!

If you are like me who does not enjoy cookie-cutter accommodation/service from chain hotels and inns and if you enjoy being pleasantly surprised by superb, personal service, you will love and look forward to repeat stays at this stately home built in 1824. Ideally situated near very beautiful Berkshire attractions like Stockbridge, the Norman Rockwell Museum and Tanglewood, it is also very close to many fine local restaurants (Alta and Chez Nous, which I will review later). The rooms are well appointed and very clean and you will be pampered with what I consider to be the most luxurious cotton towels I've used in a B&B!!! The owners, Marcia and Ken take genuine pleasure in personally serving their guests the following: a) almost gourmet-like, freshly made breakfast b) cheese and wine hour in the afternoon c) freshly baked cookies d) free bottled water and soda I think what I really want to say is this: I love this Inn mostly because the owners truly love what they're doing. Some owners do business to earn money; I think the owners, Marcia and Ken do what they do because they love what they do. I remember how Marcia offered to make sandwich for my bus trip back to Manhattan!!! Where in the world can you find business owners go out of their way like that to make your stay as memorable as possible? On the day that my partner and I were there, the Stockbridge Chamber of Commerce organized a Holiday House Tour of 6 of the area's historic properties and Federal House Inn was one of them. We went to all of them and this Inn had the best reception for the people who signed up for the tour. Marcia and Ken baked fresh holiday cookies and made special punch drinks to offer to the guests! They truly went out of their way to please their guests. We will never hesitate to ONLY stay at Federal Inn House, EVERY TIME we are in the Berkshires!! Sam and David New York City

This is a 5 star inn for sure. My husband and I can't think of anything to change or add to our stay. The owners are friendly and wonderful. The cooking and all the special little treats they lavish on you are yummy and spectacular. You won't be disappointed when you go and you really should go.
With four large windows boasting original thick moldings, Tyler's Room is exquisite. Wide plank pine flooring, expansive sitting area, and mahogany pencil post canopy bed combine to complete the historic picture of this room (once used as the billiard room). Here you can forget your worries and simply relax. What better way to unwind than to stand in your private outside entrance and gaze upon the sweeping green landscape of the Berkshires. This room features plenty of space for an additional twin bed should you need to accommodate a third guest. Tyler's room is located on the first floor for guests who prefer to avoid stairs.
With large windows that provide luscious views of the state forest and front and side lawns, Jordan's Room is brilliantly lit with sunshine. Overhead find tall ceilings and thick moldings with a ceiling fan/light combination. The room includes a queen pencil post bed and antique chairs that are wonderful companions for that perfect book. With all of this plus a dressing area adjacent to a full bathroom, you are provided with everything you need to enjoy your home away from home. The Jordan room is on the first floor for those who wish to avoid stairs.
This elegant room features a mahogany four-poster bed with a hand tied canopy. While relaxing in the spacious sitting area you can easily lose yourself in the warmth of the crackling gas fireplace. The remote control allows you to control the fireplace from the comfort of the bed as well. The large windows provide breathtaking views of the front lawn with its stately pines and majestic copper beech trees. The soft linen and white tones, lovely mantle, and wide plank pumpkin pine flooring, along with the generous size, make this one of the most popular rooms in the inn.
The perfect romantic hideaway, this room is peacefully tucked away in an undisturbed corner of the second floor. Just as any true romantic hideaway, there sits a Franklin Stove gas fireplace to keep you cozy in the night. Wide plank pine floors and built-in wardrobes keep the historic ambience of this room and combine with the white on white theme to create a romantic getaway in time. This room just oozes charm.
Deacon's Room enjoys a lovely sitting area, gas fireplace, and a plush mahogany four-poster bed. In the morning, guests can open their eyes and take in the view from the two large windows overlooking the beautiful back and side yard. The 1824 wide plank pumpkin pine flooring runs through the entire bed and bath.
Kenna Jane's Room is filled with charm. This room is positioned in a corner of the Federal House which is an ideal spot for sunshine. This charming room is tastefully decorated with antique mirrors, white cast iron bed, dormered windows, adorable built-in chimney nooks, and vintage wallpaper. The wall color is a soft cream to coordinate with the background of its popular wallpaper. The gauzy white linen curtains blow in the wonderful cross breeze.
Recently renovated, this room boasts a new deluxe king mattress and new white iron king bed frame. Joel's room has a light and peaceful feeling. It is very spacious with original hardwood floors now painted white. The room has luxury bedding from Pine Cone Hill and a Dash and Albert rug. White wicker bedside tables and new robes complete the picture. Fresh and new while retaining the old charm- you will love this room.
This bright, sunny room has three windows with great views of Yale Hill in the back of the property. This room includes a queen pencil post bed, antique dresser, and painted hardwood floors with Dash & Albert rugs to keep your bare feet warm in the mornings. It is especially delightful during fall foliage because of the towering maples that can be seen changing colors through the delicately draped windows.
Our largest and most spacious accommodation is located up a private 3rd floor stairway and features two pencil post queen sized beds. The suite offers a large skylight lit bedroom to the right and a charming reading/TV room to the left. With two bathrooms it is perfect for a family or girl's weekend. Quiet and a world apart, it includes a climate control unit to ensure the bedroom remains exactly the temperature of your choice... warm in winter and cool in summer. Walls are a soft linen color to match the Dash and Albert rug. White bedding and comfortable linen colored chairs complete the look.
