this seems like an old, somewhat musty B&B , with some small rooms , but it has lots of interesting antiques, a friendly staff, good breakfast and great location, one block from town and near all the cultural venues

Thi was a true B&B experiece. Every room has character, unique in its own way. Victorian to the max, very personal service, and dated of course, but a B&B in New negland that is to be expected. Proximity to everything Lenox has to offer, yet tucked away on a side street s quiet you can hear the rain when it... More

Our visit to Whistler's Inn didn't start well as they had lost our booking. We were a little taken aback as we had email confirmation. We had to sit and wait for quite a while before we knew what was happening It turned out OK as we were put in the African Room which was larger than the Garden Room... More

Very good location in a lovely setting. Richard and Joan were delightful, informative hosts. Breakfast was very good, especially the wonderful Almond Cake. Our room was bright, sunny and welcoming. We relaxed, enjoyed the casual atmosphere and found another guest at the inn making four, for Mah Jongg.

Walking distance to downtown Lenox and a shortcut to Tanglewood - we were home so fast after the concert! The Inn Keepers are so lovely and the house is oh so charming! Delicious strata and breakfast cakes with fresh fruit. We will be back!

A great get away. This spot is convenient to the town for walking and looking around the area. The property itself is lovely. The outdoor area is a great and stress free place to relax. The indoor areas are also beautiful. The highlight though was the delicious breakfast complimented by the friendly and interesting conversation. The owners make your stay... More

We have stayed at this Inn already two times (second time - a week ago) and I am sure we will stay again next time when we come to Berkshires. It is a very charming place with a lot of antique details, cozy library and music rooms. The hosts, Lisa, Joan and Richard, are a very nice family, who enjoy... More

The reservation for the Whistler Inn was made for a last minute getaway. It was priced fairly well compared to others; however, most places were booked because of a popular concert at Tanglewood that weekend. The actual Inn is very charming, nestled in greenery and planted on a big lot. Lots of old world charm inside with a lot of... More

The excellent service, old world ambiance and location was spoilt by the size of the room. It might be OK if visiting one night with limited luggage or as a single traveler. Our room was small and cluttered.
