The Nancy Reagan room was very comfortable with good views from the second floor overlooking Lenox. Our hosts were very friendly and greeted us as soon as we arrived. They provided us with information about Lenox and the surrounding area and... More

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 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

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

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 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
