Richard and Clare have turned an old roadside motel into a warm, but Euro-feel, B&B. They are the most generous, helpful innkeepers I've ever met. The breakfast was all food from local farms and nicely presented. Three of my sisters and their husbands were with us to celebrate 3 birthdays the weekend of Jan. 9-11. The 8 of us enjoyed... More

Love this little motel. Richard and Clare have put a lot of live into it. They have redone the motel and it has a cool retro feel which is relaxed. Clean lines. Love it. The staff is great. The motel is in a major road but set back well off the road so sleeping was wonderful. Nice fire pit out... More

We love staying here. We've now stayed three times. There's honestly nothing that compares for the value. We love going into Great Barrington for dinner and up to Stockbridge to wander around town and then out to Tanglewood for a picnic in the evening. This location is in comfortable distance to everything for us. Also the breakfast is quite good... More

We chose this location because it is pet friendly. They have two pet friendly rooms. Make sure you verify with the clerk when you make a reservation that you have pets. Rooms were spotless. Very convenient location to ski resorts and for hiking Monument Mountain is across the street. Breakfast was awesome ! Best coffee, homemade granola, scones and organic... More

We recently spent a night at this cute place. Structurally it looks like the classic old-school 50s/60s motel, BUT it's been updated with new furniture, VERY clean and super comfy. We arrived on the later side and there was a big firepit lit to welcome us which was pleasant to sit around for a bit to unwind after the drive.... More

We just wanted to spend a night away from home and decided to try the Berkshires. This location was obviously perfect for hiking Monument Mountain, as it is directly across the street. I was shocked at how cute and clean the rooms were. They thought of everything in such a compact and simple way. The best part of the stay,... More

We were glad to find this motel for an overnight stay while traveling through the area with our dog, The room was very clean and very comfortable. There was no indication that this was one of the two "pet friendly" rooms as has been the case in many of our travels - the room was spotless. The grounds were beautiful... More

What a fantastic place to stay in the Berkshires! The owners are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The scones and breads at breakfast were wonderful. The coffee was nice and strong ( not like Dunkin, thankfully ). It was confidently located near many of the small towns such as Lenox, Stockbridge and Great Barrington. I cannot say enough about how clean... More

From the number of return visitors alone, Richard & Claire have obviously done a wonderful job of transforming an older motel into a meticulously clean and delightful B&B atmosphere! Monument Mountain is a stunning site (plan to lose your cell phone connection), and the firepit is a welcoming spot to enjoy a glass lemonade or wine in the early evening.... More

Great little spot with a beautiful view of Monument Mountain. I booked it with some apprehension, it being a motel and all. Even the wife loved it. Uber-clean rooms. A nice "community" area with tables. Breakfast was great. Hosts were very cordial. The fire pit was a nice little perk we took advantage of in the chilly fall weather. We... More
