Exceptional experience and can't wait to go back in the Spring/Summer

4.8 on January 12, 2017

Just wanted to thank Stan and his wife for making our stay over New Year's fun, relaxing and memorable. From the time we rang the bell in the foyer to saying goodbye, Stan went out of his way to ensure we were enjoying their home. He told us about his background, how he came to own Hampton Terrace, all of the amazing antique furniture inside and how they've grown over the years. We had delicious French Toast for breakfast one day (overslept on New Year's for the other breakfast!) and had an overall amazing time. As someone who works in Customer Experience for a living the thing that stuck with me the most is when saying goodbye, Stan said "hope you come back soon." - and truly meant it. We'll be back in the Spring/Summer to enjoy the pool and all the fine warm weather activities Lenox has to offer!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you SO much for this great review, Billy. We DO hope to see you again in the Spring. The pool opens Memorial Day Weekend. See you then.

- Stan (innkeeper)

Excellent inn

Stan quickly greeted us after we arrived. He personally showed us to our room and explained how to work everything. He was immediately available by cell if we needed anything. He was never intrusive. Ambiance was wonderful throughout the inn. Breakfast was promptly served, hot and delicious. There was even a bar available that provided glasses and dishes for a self serve cocktail hour. I would definitely stay here again.

The innkeeper was very helpful and flexible. The breakfast was delicious, a yummy French toast, varied fresh fruit and outstanding coffee. We had lunch at a restaurant that was suggested to us and were very happy with it. We would definitely come back again.


Great place to stay

4.0 on July 25, 2010

The room was beautiful. Our only complaint is that we were woken by a trash truck right outside our window at 5:45 a.m. It was extremely loud, including shouting by the driver. We thought a loveseat might have been nice, rather than two widely-spaced chairs. One strange thing did happen: at one point the shade on the large window went up on its own (wound too tightly?), and later the window closed itself!! Mmmm. BUT! the bed was very comfortable, the room was perfect in every other way, the property is lovely, and we loved that we could walk to Shakespeare & Co., and to shops and restaurants.


We come back every year!

4.6 on June 30, 2010

When we started coming to the Berkshires we tried other B&B’s but once we found Stan and the Hampton Terrace Inn we now come back to them every year. The two main reasons are: one because of the location. You can walk to everything, Shops, Dinning, Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Company, and more. If you want to get into your car you are close to all of the Berkshires attractions. The second reason is Stan and his wife Susan. They are great and have a wealth of knowledge of the local area. Plus they just nice people…. What more could you ask for! (OK the breakfast is scrumptious too)


A Berkshires Gem

What a find Hampton Terrace is! From the time you walk in and are greeted by Stan, the innkeeper, and the winding staircase, you feel a sense of WOW. I was lucky enough to get a tour of the inn, and got to visit many of the rooms. They're all fabulous. The Carriage House King Suites have everything you might want - whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, TVs with DVDs and tons of room. The inn rooms have really captured the history of the building with built-ins found even in the bathrooms. I stayed in room #1, and loved it. The woodburning fireplace added such an ambiance after a long day. Stan, the innkeeper and breakfast cook introduced me to grits. They were really good. There is a fabulous bar in the parlor and Stan gives away gift certificates to the local wine store to people who stay two or more nights, so you can pick out a favorite bottle of wine and then enjoy it at the bar. What a cool idea that is. I didn't get a chance to see the pool uncovered (visited in winter), but the setting is wonderful. I hope to come back when I can see the pool. I highly recommend Hampton Terrace.

About the innkeepers

A former concert promoter, Stan was brought to Lenox by the Dick Clark-led National Music Foundation as Development Director, after helping to raise $10 million to build the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. The foundation moved out of state, and Stan and Susan stayed in Lenox. They bought Hampton Terrace in 1999 so their four children could stay in Lenox schools. Stan loves to share his knowledge of Lenox and the Berkshires with his guests - and he is full of rock n' roll stories.
