We spent a wonderful weekend at the Birchwood Inn. Our room was very quaint, comfortable and extremely clean. The comforts of home in the bath were a nice addition. We enjoyed chatting with Ellen and Mike and we felt like family. During our stay we had afternoon tea, cobbler and lemon squares. Breakfast was delicious - different every day. I... More

Great place to get away and to still be walkable to Lenox. Fabulous to bring your dog along or just for a romantic visit for two. The breakfast is gourmet cooked and the rooms are elegant old New England. We would stay here again and again. Loved the care taken by the innkeepers and the ambience.

I spent a wonderful April weekend at the Birchwood Inn - The inn is historic and comfortable. Ellen and Mike make you feel at home and Charley and Quinn adopt you as part of the family. When traveling I am usually a hotel person - but the Birchwood Inn and staff leave you no alternative but to relax - Ellen... More

I just read the review by Build NYC. Having stayed at the Birchwood many times each summer for the past decade plus, mostly in the Post Room when it is available, I cannot disagree more with that review. My wife and I have never experienced anything but clean, insect-free rooms, excellent customer service from very accommodating innkeepers, and the best... More

This "hotel" was more like a college dorm room after a frat party. I checked in and checked out five minutes later. As I stood in the room using my phone to search for alternate lodging I was afraid to sit on the bed for fear of being bitten by something. The Assistant inn keeper named Mike, was shocked to...

We are inspected on a regular basis by an independent company to ensure that our property is up to very high standards. Some... More

This was my second stay at the Birchwood Inn and again it was a delightful & relaxing weekend. My third floor room was comfy & cozy with a very large bathroom. Each breakfast that Ellen made was delicious & very different from the day before!!! Yummy! We visited the Norman Rockwell Museum & the Clark, both were excellent & nearby... More

It's finally time to get out there and get back to the Berkshires, to the Birchwood Inn in Lenox, MA. What a delight to be on the porch of the Birchwood, watching the leaves unfurl in front of us, or at least that's how Nature and Spring looked last weekend. Over the years Ellen Chenaux, innkeeper extraordinaire, has made our... More

JR was one of my first guests 16 years ago, when she declared herself Porch Supervisor. Birchwood's spacious porch is her favorite spot, from the mornings with the New York Times to the evenings over a glass of wine. Another 10 star guest! More

Another wonderful visit to the Berkshires and Birchwood Inn. What a spectacular combination. Ellen runs a beautiful Inn and the food could not have been more delicious. This trip is such a treat. We look forward to many returns. There is so much to do but at the end of the day there is Birchwood Inn our home away from... More

Loved our stay. Ellen and Mike were great hosts. We had the entire place to ourselves the first night and they let us walk around and look at all the rooms, each of which is decorated uniquely. We reserved the biggest suite which is right at the top of the stairs overlooking the front yard. It was huge with a... More

Ah, yes, The Dana Room is a special room for extra-special guests! Our house-keeping team strive valiantly in this 249 year old house for "spotless" and will be so happy you noticed! I have to admit that the pancakes are the best blueberry pancakes ever. Quinn, the epitome of optimism, would like some, too! And isn't it wonderful that all... More

The hospitality shown and the incredible breakfasts are wonderful. Have been at Birchwood Inn at least nine consecutive years when we go to Tanglewood concerts. At 4:00 p.m. homemade goodies are served on the veranda with lemonade, ice tea, etc.
