We stayed at The Summer White House for 2 nights...It was totally enjoyable. From the second you walk in the front door you get an immediate feeling of warmth and hospitality. Within 5 minutes of going to our room we were brought ice and cold water by Melissa, the wonderful manager. The location is unbeatable. It is right on Main... More

The Summer White House was built in 1885 and is filled with antiques that make you feel as if you have stepped back in time. The B and B owners were incredibly helpful with recommendations as to which things to do in the area - there is so much that it is difficult to cram everything you want to do... More

Despite the frigid temperatures outside, our Presidents' Weekend stay at The Summer White House could not have been better. Our room offering a view of Main Street was spacious and beautifully furnished with a very comfortable bed, excellent lighting for reading and a decent-sized flat screen TV offering lots of channels. The breakfasts offered a good variety of hot and... More

Charming is the word for this B&B in little Lenox, MA. The rooms are equiped with canopy beds, fireplaces, and lovely sitting rooms. Breakfast is buffet style and loaded with variety. We met folks from all over the United States as well as England. The conversation was lively and I even learned that theTanglewood concerts were broadcast on local radio.... More

An innkeeper who has been presiding over this excellent, antique establishment for 30 years. Courtly, in the middle of historic Lenox, a great kitchen and all the info you need to know in the region. Charming.

The Summer White House is located in the heart of Lenox and is conveneint to the town and to Tanglewood. We stayed in the Nancy Reagan room which has a four poster bed and a small enclosed terrace.

The Summer White House is wonderful. Excellent value for the price. Central location, comfortable room, quiet, easy access to Tanglewood, and excellent hosts. Frank and Mary are the perfect hosts, friendly and interesting but respectful of guests' privacy. They magically appear just as you needed something! The Mamie Eishenhower room had a very comfortable canopy bed, fireplace, and two arm... More

We stayed three days for a James Taylor Concert at Tanglewood so paid Top Dollar. Right in down town... More

We booked The Summer White House back in the middle of April 2011 for a three night stay in early August 2011. As expected, I was asked for my credit card for a deposit on the room and I willingly gave it to them. As their website does not have any information about deposits or cancellation policy, I asked and... More
