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.

The ambiance, food ,service, and staff have kept us coming back year after year. Never had the same breakfast and each one is as good as the one before. The staff and owner are always available to advise local entertainment and dining. If you are looking for shopping, dining, entertainment or just relaxing in the garden, this is a place... More

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at the Birchwood Inn. It was a lovely experience. Ellen and Mike are attentive and friendly innkeepers, but without being intrusive. The room was clean, well-appointed, and very comfortable. They welcomed our dog with a cookie and complete set up of towels, water bowls,and bed. The locations s perfect for anything you might want... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Birchwood Inn for one night based on their reviews on Trip Advisor. We surely were not disappointed! We are always on the hunt for charm and character when we visit bed and breakfasts in the Northeast. As soon as you walk in to the Birchwood Inn, you feel the warmth and coziness of this... More

My wife, Welsh terrier Bessie and I spent three great days at the Birchwood Inn in the Dana suite. Ellen, the owner was most gracious and accommodating and in addition to being an excellent inn keeper, is a gourmet chef who prepared amazing breakfasts each morning and sweets in the afternoon. The inn is impeccably maintained. Our room had a... More

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

Happy guests make for happy innkeepers! Yes, the weather did fluctuate this October from unseasonably warm one day to rather crisp the next. Yesterday was 45F and it's close to 70F today. I'm glad that the breeze and the ceiling fan were able to keep you comfortable. Thank you for staying with us during our spectacular foliage season! 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

Not only do guests, from time to time, have a bad day, innkeepers sometimes -- hopefully infreguently -- do, too. But I am happy you had an outstanding experience! We have guests sign up for breakfast seatings so that everyone will have a private table and so that we may prepare our culinary specialties, which often require precise timing. We... More
