We missed Marja at check-in, her husband showed us in, but she clearly is in control as her enthusiastic welcome the next morning extended to working to please a particularly difficult diner with breakfast choices. Every morning there was a freshly made "sweet" to have with a cup of coffee. Freshly made breakfast was served, after one sat down, a... More

This was our first visit to the Berkshires. We were attending a friend's wedding and needed a place to stay. We decided to make a 3 day weekend out of our trip and are happy we chose the Wainwright Inn. The owners were very welcoming, pleasant and accommodating. The room was comfortable, quiet and clean. Our included breakfast was delicious... More

This was my girlfriend and I's first trip to a bed and breakfast as opposed to a hotel. It was a strange feeling at first, as if staying in a stranger's house. But Marja and Robert made us feel comfortable and right at home from the moment we arrived until we left. We enjoyed the small town sights and sounds... More

The beautiful old house had a very useful front porch, the breakfast room was so pretty, the cooked breakfasts were always special, and the staff was kind, helpful, and hard working. They will warmly accommodate your special diet requests--mine was vegan and they did it very, very well. The mattress was truly comfortable, and the room spacious and set up... More

What a charming place full of character! Great service, great food, very nice rooms and awesome people. Was there during the World Cup and enjoyed the soccer bantering with Maryam very much. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in the carriage house for three nights. Marja and Robert were welcoming and friendly. The breakfasts were delicious and Marja's dining recommendations were fantastic! She even called and made reservations for us. The Wainwright Inn was a relaxing getaway.

We stayed at the inn for a one night stay on Sunday and took the recommendation of Marja to stay in the Edison Room in the back of the 1st floor. We were greeted warmly by Marja and Robert and shown the common areas before being shown to our room. It is a peaceful, private room separated by a small... More

A classic B&B, with large rooms, modern electrical fixtures and modern bath (lo-flush toilets, shower with fixed and hand-held heads). Window mounted A/C was reasonably quiet and efficient. Marja served remarkable breakfasts, changing day to day, with plenty of food, coffee, juices, home-made bread, with some individual variation. Large comfortable beds. Some street noise, but that can be masked with... More

This was my second visit to the Wainwright in the past few years. It's conveniently located a couple of blocks from the historic center of town. The innkeepers, Marya and her husband Robert, are charming and hospitable. A friend and I stayed there this weekend and had a wonderful experience. Both our rooms were great. Breakfasts included homemade waffles, kale... More
