We just had a lovely stay at the Wainwright Inn. Chris and Barb were wonderful hosts and the inn itself was beautiful. I loved the room where we stayed, the Edison room. Breakfast was delicious, especially the French toast. We would definitely stay there again the next time we're in the area.

We enjoyed Late fall weekend here at the Wainwright Inn. We were 2 couples and stayed in the carriage house. We loved our accommodations. It had 2 bedrooms with 2 private baths with a wonderful sitting area with a kitchenette. It was very relaxing to come back from our hikes to sit and enjoy our living space. Our rooms were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very pretty property but on a busy road with lots of traffic so not especially peaceful and didn't sleep well even with ear plugs. Slightly lukewarm reception when we arrived - perhaps because we were the only guests we took them by surprise! Room was ok - a little dated but having stayed in a... More

I spent four days here during the week and had a great stay with Chris and Barb and their daughter. The house itself is clean, comfortable and nicely maintained with beautiful period details. The new owners, with whom I had the chance to chat, have plans to make the inn more comfortable and efficient while keeping the details intact. The... More

Thank you for so detailed review. Leave foliage was in prime week after you stayed. Mid of the October is the best time to plan visit to see all the colors, but it is always hard to predict. Next time, please let us know if you arriving by bus and we'll be able to meet you at the bus stop... More

This is a quaint B&B with lots of history and wonderful hospitality. Breakfast was over the top (yogurt with berries and honey, waffles with choice of syrups, and pumpkin bread). Also loved the port and sherry offered in the parlor. Only complaint is that the rooms are a bit outdated and don't quite match the website photos. The blinds in... More

Wanting to spend a late summer weekend in the Berkshires, my wife and I were looking for a place that was historic, but friendly, clean and comfortable. Wainwright Inn checked all the boxes. We stayed in Meta, one of two rooms above the coachman's house. (The two coachman's rooms had central heating and a/c. The inn rooms have window units.)... More

I made the reservation with the previous owner (who had won all the awards). I was participating in the Berkshire International Chorale. I could have stayed on their campus for the week but opted to spend an additional $900+ for a Victorian B&B. I made the reservations with the prior owner. The current owner has owned the B&B for approximately... More

We are very sorry that we were not able to make your stay more enjoyable as we did try very hard to do everything as you asked us during your stay in our B&B. Regarding the value, we strongly believe our pricing is competitive in comparison to similar B&B in the area. Proof for that is that we are very... More

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
