My wife and I just spent two nights at the Wainwright Inn and had a great stay! The home is beautiful, clean and well kept, but does not have a stuffy or overly polished feeling; it's a place you can kick back, relax, and feel at home. I attribute this to Chris and Barb who are kind and sincere in... More

We stayed for one night in the Edison room and liked it very much. It was comfortable and clean, with a fairly spacious bathroom with full tub and shower. It was enjoyable to sit on the front porch with the newspaper, and to have a picnic at the table and chairs set in the landscaped side yard. This inn is... More

We were so delighted with our stay for my birthday weekend June 2015. The new owners are terrific and they've picked up where the old owners left off. The food was delicious and they were very personable, yet not intrusive. I'm going to see James Taylor this weekend at Tanglewoods and would've liked to stay there again, but since its... More

We spent two nights here in the carriage house. The room was spacious and comfortable--both it and the bathroom were super clean. The shared area between the rooms was really nice and had homemade cookies and a carafe of port set up for guests. The breakfasts were as good as everyone mentions. I'm not sure I've ever had such a... More

Our room is most comfortable providing great sleep and the location, walkable to downtown shopping, dining and ice cream, is convenient. I was thrilled to be served gluten free toast with my breakfast, without having reminded Barb and Chris after the initial email contact. Thanks for the attention!

Provided great snacks mid-day Grounds are beautiful - spent late afternoons in yard in comfortable chairs. Rooms are clean -- very... More

My wife and I had a delightful stay when we were in the area picking up our son from school. The new owners, Chris and Barb, are very conscientious and made sure our stay was comfortable. They are very friendly and we had wonderful conversation with them. The Inn is a beautiful old historic home. We stayed in the carriage... More

Two weeks later, I'm still glowing from my magical visit to the Wainwright Inn. I remember the stark beauty of white snow all around us, contrasted with the light and warmth of the rooms, and people, within. Marja and Robert took most exquisite care of us. Our bedroom was toasty and delightfully comfortable -- I slept better than I had... More

I am not the type of person who usually goes to B&B's, but I have to say that if I was going to stay anywhere it'd be here. We will surely come back. What I liked most was that the place had a very homey feel to it, but I didn't feel like I was staying in someone's house. Everything... More
