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!

Recently returned from Memorial Day weekend at Wainwright Inn. Highly recommend - new owners Chris and Barb were super accommodating to our group of cyclists - who wanted to eat early and have nutritious breakfast-- taking special orders graciously. 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

Marja and Robert are really doing a wonderful job, their Inn is beautiful, very clean, and they are both very kind and welcoming. Our room was very nice, as was the bathroom and common areas. What stands out the most for us is the food - Marja's breakfasts were out of this world and she did a fantastic job of... 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

On the strength of the baked goods at breakfast alone, I would come here again! We're vegan and Marja did a wonderful job feeding us good food. Not just "good for vegan food" or "good but with a dollop of resentment" as we often encounter. Genuinely good food, good conversation, and all that in a fine old house. She makes... More

Our Thanksgiving stay in the Berkshires was rescued by Marja and Robert who kindly accommodated our last minute needs by making available the room we needed for our family. The room was perfect and everything was nice and clean. The breakfast was creative and delicious, and the innkeepers were so very nice and full of great information regarding the area.... More
