I was so pleased with this B&B! We had a very comfortable stay. Susanna strikes the perfect blend of being informative and welcoming, without being intrusive. Bravo. I thought her cooking was excellent, too. The location is GREAT - you can walk across the street for a walk, sit in the backyard overlooking a very pastoral setting, or be in... More

This is our favorite B&B in the Berkshires, and we’ve visited many times. Susanna, the innkeeper, is an extremely caring person, who is happy to accommodate dietary restrictions. Breakfast always includes a delicious hot entree, and granola, fresh fruit, and yogurt are always available. It's fun to watch the birds at the bird feeder during breakfast! The rooms are lovely...

My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend at the Acorn's Hope in June. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable and Susanna, the hostess, made us feel at home. For breakfast, we had a choice of cereal, juice, yogurt, fresh fruit and breads, as well as pancakes one morning and a frittata the next. Everything was delicious. Susanna gladly... More

I stayed at Suzanna`s B&B a year ago when I visited Great Barrington for a friend`s wedding. Being my first time in the USA this was the perfect place to show me the hospitality and charm of the American nation. Suzanna took care of me for 4 days and made me feel welcome and at home ( she even understood... More

. . . for its comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms, the delicious breakfasts and especially the hostess, Susanna, who is gracious and accommodating. She had great recommendations for where to eat, hear music, take walks -- you name it. One weekend we had guests for our daughter's wedding stay there and they all raved about it as well!

This was our first time staying with Susanna and we were thrilled! The inn is located off the main roads and it is a beautiful surrounding that is so peaceful. It is a great location for going anywhere in the Berkshires . We stayed in the lilac room which was more of a suite. A living room with great art... More

Acorn's Hope and innkeeper Susanna Abarbanel create the perfect place for experiencing the Berkshires. The inn is charming and Susanna's breakfasts are terrific - always inventive and delicious. I've never had the same breakfast twice after several visits. Can't imagine staying anywhere else.

My wife and I throughly enjoyed our stays and Susanna's travel maps and touring advice were "spot on" and led to some great adventures in the Berkshires. My advice to you if you are... More
