Our family (2 adults, 2 kids ages 9 and 12, 1 dog) stayed at Race Brook Lodge for two nights over this winter holiday. We had planned to ski but couldn't because of the warm weather (all the local ski areas were closed!) - but we had such a wonderful getaway hiking, exploring, and just relaxing in this beautiful setting....

Racebrook Lodge is a wonderful place to stay for a weekend "upstate." We were there in the winter but it's worth going up in any season. It's close to the town center of Sheffield,Ma so we visited the stores and restaurants there. But our BEST day was spent hiking in the area. We were tired after the hike we decided... More

Of course we geologists like to hike, so being able to hike on up to the Appalachian Trail is a serious plus. All the interesting marble and schist makes every stone wall a marvel. Inside was cosy and comfortable. Staff person was most welcoming. Breakfast was perfect including all the healthy goodies and nice coffee I would wish for. My... More

This is an unbelievable place for dogs. The cottages are steps from a spectacular trail that feeds into the AT. The innkeepers aren't fussy about the dogs...or anything for that matter. Just be respectful of the other guests and you'll have a great time.

We wanted to explore the Berkshires and ended up here. The setting is quite lovely with a stream, hammocks, trees, but our cottage had a musty smell and had a worn out look and feel to it. Anceint air conditioner with knobs that didn't work well. Bed was good though and it was clean enough but the shower had lousy... More

This rustic yet comfortable inn has a welcoming staff, wonderful breakfasts, and a fabulous outdoor pool. It's replete with hammocks alongside the brook, rocking chairs on the porch, and, in case if inclement weather, a comfy, cozy common room. We've already booked for next summer!!

If you love rustic, this is the place to be. Walking distance from the Appalachian Trail, there are many places to hike even if the AT is too much for you. It is kind of like being at summer camp but better. The rooms have comfortable beds and a/c if needed and the inn, which serves breakfast of eggs or... More

We just loved our recent vacation at Race Brook Lodge. It is so charming and every single person on the staff was so friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful! It was peaceful and quiet during the week, and on the weekend there were kids and dogs playing on the lawn and grown-ups chatting on the porch. The hiking trail... More

We try to travel for long weekends at least twice a year from Brooklyn. Race Brook is the perfect spot to explore the beauty of the Berkshires. Great hiking, great arts, great museums, great music. All close by. I can only smile at reviews complaining about old furniture etc. Well, that is the basic idea and beauty of Race Brook.... More

This was our third stay here. This was the first time we've been there without snow on the ground. Very green! Nature at its best! As always we had a relaxing and comfy stay. The food at the tavern was delicious! The staff was friendly and helpful, the accommodations comfortable and homey. Can't wait to go back!
