I spent three nights at the Wainwright Inn and was most impressed with the experience. The room was clean, spacious, bright with an extremely comfortable bed and had a nice private bathroom. Homemade breakfasts were delicious. Everything about the place was terrific! I cannot think of any negative or even neutral comments! It was a fabulous place and I will... More

Super great place to stay in the heart of Great Barrington. Close to town and shopping and pubs, we stayed 3-nights and loved every minute. Our 2nd floor room was huge and access to the porch to relax was especially nice. Lovingly restored and marvelously decorated by the inn keeper, Marja (mar-eee-ah), the Inn is a step back into romantic... More

My husband I stayed at the Wainwright Inn for several nights in early October. I highly recommend this inn if you stay in Great Barrington. The location is ideal being only 3 blocks from the center of town. Far enough away to avoid the noise but close enough to walk to everything. There are few options for lodging in the... More

This year was our 7th visit to the Wainwright Inn! The warmth and charm of Marja, (the innkeeper) and Darryl (her very capable 1st assistant) welcome you to their inn. From our first visit 7 years ago, including an extended family week-end, to this last visit in July, the ambiance and decor remind one of being at home. The breakfasts... More

My fiance and I spent one night at the Wainwright Inn this past weekend on a multi-night B&B excursion across the state. We found Great Barrington to be a truly perfect, small and relaxing Berkshire town. There were several restaurant options along with many shops in the center of town. The B&B itself is on Main Street about 1/2 mile... More

We enjoyed our stay in the Wainwright Inn, a former 18th century tavern into a lovely arranged accommodation. Marja, the very friendly owner knows how to satisfy their guests with a wonderfull, rich and every day changing brakefast, made from best regional recipes. The rooms are big and comfortable and also very silent even the Inn is situated at the... More

The Wainwright Inn is a historic home built in the 1700's, and convereted into a bed-and-breakfast with private baths and many private fireplaces. My wife and I came there for a getaway weekend in Mid-October 2007, and enjoyed a terrific time. The rooms have no televisions or telephones, just a clock radio-- a plus from our point of view (there... More

We brought our friends from Germany to the Berkshires to take in the fall colors. The Wainwright Inn proved to be a perfect example of what an elegant yet friendly inn can be. The rooms are spacious and clean and the innkeepers warm, friendly and informative. The breakfasts were truly gourmet wonders (three courses, starting with fresh baked goods, followed... More

An exceptionally clean and welcoming large, antique home a short walk from the downtown business district with it's shops and many restaurants. We were there for a 2-night getaway just after Labor Day when things tend to be quiet after kids have returned to school. A great area for antiquing and the many cultural activities avalable. The innkeepers, Robert and... More

The Wainwright Inn is the quintessential B& B experience. The place is a wealth of history and charm and is decorated very tastefully! It is clean and has amenities such as hairdyers (even make-up removal cloths). We felt right at home because Marja and Robert take you in "like family". Marja is personable, patient and caring. Daryl who helps make... More
