This was our third stay in three years. A lovely inn just a mile east of Stockbridge. Kolleen and Brian are wonderful hosts, welcoming and very accommodating. The place seems to attract like-minded guests and we always find people to spend time with, particularly with a complimentary glass of wine. Lovely rooms, impeccably clean. What else could one ask for... More

Our first stay at this B&B and it was did not disappoint! Great location for all attractions. Beautiful property and very relaxing. The breakfast here is outstanding. Brian was a good resource for food and attraction information. We'll come back if we are in the area again.

Kolleen & Brian are exceptional innkeepers who are committed to quality guest services. They are very warm and hospitable and have a wealth of local knowledge. Kolleen prepares a wonderful breakfast each morning and is very accommodating to special dietary needs. They also provide wine and cheese at five each day and take a personal interest in your individual interest,... More

We were looking for the perfect quiet getaway for a single night in the Berkshires, and we found it! We arrived on Friday around 3 pm and were greeted at the door with a smile and a welcome. The house is beautiful, in original, well kept condition. Very clean and well furnished. The front sitting room is large and comfortable,... More

From the moment that Kolleen & Brian welcomed us we felt at home in this elegant "Berkshires Cottage". (The understatement is part of the thrill). The rooms all have local themes like Norman Rockwell, in which we stayed, that are beautifully furnished and decorated. There are several spots to sit both outside and in to enjoy the free glass of... More

We stayed here a year ago and returned last weekend. It Brian and Colleen are great hosts and we had a wonderful overnight. The accommodations were clean, inviting and well appointed. The afternoon Wine and Cheese was a nice treat and breakfast was plenty, filling and again wonderful. Having stayed here before, it was why we returned and we had... More

Spent a long weekend here in the Yale Room. The owners were gracious and helpful. They offered a delicious breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese plus evening brandy and chocolates. Our room was comfortable and quiet and is in the back of the house. The house is close to most of the attractions in the Berkshires. We're going to return soon.

The Federal House was everything I had hoped for a peaceful weekend in the Berkshires. We stayed two nights in the Crabtree Room, which was right at the top of the stairs in the main part of the house. I definitely recommend it! The room was cozy, clean, and very spacious, with lots of natural light. The temperature is controlled... More

This is our third time staying at Federal House Inn and everything was up to the same high standard I remembered. The decro is specially done for Christmas and the building looks so stunning with lights at night. We stayed at one of the downstairs room this time (the corner one by the stairs and I don’t remember the name)... More

Location: It is located in a small town atmosphere. One needs car to get around. There are enough restaurants and shops to keep one busy. The whole town is very pretty. Common Areas: Since it is a B&B, the whole place feels like a private home. Not too big. Not too small. We met another couple there and had a... More
