Ellen, the proprietor of this appealing B&B, is a real gem. Even though the property is a wonderful place on its own, she and the other staffers put it in its own class. Check-in was a breeze, the room was just as promised and her restaurant recommendation the first night was spot on. She even made our reservation on the... More

Just completed a two day stay at BIrchwood and was quite disappointed. While our room in the Carriage House may have been different from those in the main building, it was not worth the nightly charge. The room had a very musty damp smell upon arrival (quite unromantic) The room was very small with an even smaller bath with a... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review; however, the very best time to air concerns is when you are here so that we can try to correct any problems. We do not "put" people in rooms. All of our rooms are described in details with photos on our website, which clearly states that the room you chose... More

We seek out the best Inns and B&Bs when we travel. We also use TripAdvisor a lot and know that we somes times a guest has a BAD day and take it out on the B&B and / owner. Our visit was outstanding and a pleasure. Stayed in the Dana Room. Clean and spotless. Every detail was taken care of.... More

The Birchwood Inn is situated in the oldest building in the quaint town of Lenox. It is a lovely, spacious home filled with comfort, antique furniture & with a friendly & charming hostess who just happens to be a great cook. The blueberry pancakes for breakfast were wonderful & the cakes provided in the afternoon were different each day, but... More

We selected this B & B based on its reputation as a 'select registry' B & B and that it allowed a limited number of dogs to stay in the rooms. I spoke over the telephone (I know old fashioned technology) with the innkeeper Ellen, a charming person who understands this business inside and out AND gives cooks lovely filling... More

I laugh when I read some of the negative reviews that have been ;posted, and I speak from much experience. My friends and I have stayed at the Birchwood for many years over New Years. It is the best inn that any of us have stayed in and we all are significant travelers. We stayed at numerous inns in Lenox... More

I had the joy of spending five wonderful nights at Birchwood Inn over the Labor Day holiday. I was there for a special concert at Tanglewood and to research my family history in that area. I stayed in the Wilson Room and was very comfortable. Karen and Keith ensured that the room was meticulously clean each day by the time... More

My fiancé and I had planned a romantic get away with a concert at tanglewood, and chosen the Birchwood as our hotel for 2 nights. We received a confirmation email and my credit card was charged a deposit that day so I thought we were all set. After the three hour drive, we arrived and were told that our reservation... More

This is a first for us as well. In my 16 years as innkeeper we've never had a reservation cancelled by mistake. We have no idea whose mistake it was -- only the reservation card with a line through it marked "cancelled" and a note saying "cancelled" on the reservation software. If the gentleman had stayed inside while we made... More

I really wanted to LOVE this place, but just couldn't. First, I need to disclose that I have worked as an innkeeper before, and I realize that everyone has bad days and bad situations, BUT if you are charging your guests for a certain level of service and hospitality, you have to provide it. If you or your staff are... More

These are serious allegations, and we assure you we are taking them seriously. I am addressing them in an attempt to correct erroneous impressions. As the owner/innkeeper, I check each and every room before check-in. Our housekeepers pride themselves on their meticulous attention to detail. They had cleaned the room and bathroom scrupulously, and I did not see anything amiss... More

Loved the big porch and rocking chairs on the front of the hotel. Everyone staying there came down around 4ish to read, enjoy the porch and munch on the cookies or brownies being served with tea. The innkeepers could not have been any nicer or the breakfast any better; Fruit, homemade bread and cake, along with an excellent entree were... More
