On our way from Burlington, VT, to New York City, we took an over-night break in the Berkshires. Sweet Water Farm Inn proved to be the right choice! The host couple are so friendly, the rooms beautiful, and the rooster wake-up call in the morning unique! We took an evening dip in the near-by lake, rinsing off dust from the... More

We droves many miles 'out of our way' to visit this home from home. Wonderfully welcoming with great food and friendly people. It really feels like you're staying with the country folk relatives you wish you actually had. As Brits it helps that they also know how to make a proper cup of tea.

I now come back here every summer for a full week, while attending the nearby Berkshire Choral music week in Sheffield. It is the perfect Inn, country comfort with elegance. The technology was upgraded over the this past winter as well. The "back road" from the Inn to the west end of South Egremont is perhaps the prettiest in the... More

Very, very near Great Barrington, MA, the Inn at Sweet Water Farm was a delightful venue over Fathers' Day weekend from which to visit the Clark Museum (Williamstown), the Rockwell Museum (West Stockbridge) and to hear the wonders of the Boston Early Music Festival. The Inn, which dates from the first decade of the 1800s, is comfortable, crisp and clean.... More

I have to say that for a real peaceful and charming place to stay, while in the Bershires, nothing compares with the attmosphere and ambiance of the Inn at Sweet Water Farm. Every detail, from the bedding to the farm fresh breakfast meal itself, is lovingly and artfully handelled. No pretense here, Just REAL goodness. Can't wait to visit there... More

Lovely place to stay while in the Berkshires. Lynda and Andrei were great hosts. The food was to die for! Homemade baked goods-- the rhubarb short bread was a particular favorite (we should ask for the recipe!).

My wife and I have traveled to the Berkshires 3 times since 2012 and though I had researched and read great things about the Inn at Sweet Water Farm, this past Memorial Day weekend was the first opportunity we had to stay there. I wish we could have stayed longer than the one night we did stay. I had booked... More

I almost don't want to write this review because I want this place all to myself... But actually, Lynda and Andrei deserve the business. The Inn at Sweet Water Farm is a perfect combination of comfortable and quaint. Staying there is like having a home in the Berkshires, a home with delicious and creative breakfast made from locally grown in-season... More

My husband and I stayed here for a rare child-care weekend in the dead of winter. We found it to be utterly relaxing--it's a very solid historical building with interesting features. Breakfast was delicious (I've made the scones from their recipe already and they came out great!), and in the evening the fire, candles, and brandies were such a nice... More

My wife and I stayed here to celebrate her 40th birthday and had a great experience - the room was cozy, clean and charming with an incredibly comfortable bed. The location is central, just a short drive into Great Barrington. The morning breakfast was amazing - little "tasters" to start (delicious scones with dates & pecan shipped fresh from CA... More
