Location, location, location! The Federal House Inn is located next door to Stockbridge, just a short distance to both Tanglewood and Sheffield. At 5 pm, a lovely wine and cheese spread was put out for guests and we enjoyed it on their spectacular front porch, overlooking a gracious lawn. The Cranberry room was lovely and spacious and the bathroom had... More

This was our fourth weekend at Federal House so clearly we are fans. Kolleen and Brian are exquisite hosts and we always find genial friendships at breakfast or in the parlor. Rooms are more than adequate, and we've stayed in four different ones. The inn is just a mile out of Stockbridge so its easy to get to town or... More

A nice mix of friendliness and respect for privacy. Well-maintained rooms and public spaces without too much of the bric-a-brac that clutters a lot of B&Bs. Beautiful old house in a location convenient to Stockbridge by car. Perhaps a bit pricey for what it is.

I stayed at the Federal House Inn for a Kripalu visit and to experience some of the Berkshires. It was overall an amazing experience. Kolleen and Brian are warm, caring, and wonderful hosts. I received a free room upgrade and enjoyed Kolleen's delicious breakfasts that she made and served with such care. The inn and its grounds are beautifully kept.... More

We came to Lee for theater events and wanted to stay in a Bed and Breakfast. The Federal House Inn was a lovely B and B and exuded a tremendous level of warmth. It was clear that the owners were very attuned to the needs of the people who stayed htere. The rooms were lovely and our room had a... More

Just a wonderful place made better by its wonderful hosts, Brian and Kolleen. For the old time details of this mid-19th century building look no further than the faucets in the ground floor toilet. The breakfast is just perfect! Altogether, it is a classy place very much in synch with its location.

We spent a lovely night here, and were very well taken care of. The hosts were very nice and gave us a free upgrade to a larger room on the first floor just because it was available. The breakfast was very special with courses served as in fine dining. The place is very historic, yet very well kept and maintained... More

We stayed at the Federal House over Memorial Day Weekend while attending a nearby wedding. The house is very historical and has a lot of charm. The breakfasts were wonderful, and our hosts were very fiendly and nice to speak with. The grounds were very well kept, and there are nice common rooms to sit and relax in as well.... More

It is our forth time staying at Federal House Inn and first visit in the winter. As always, we had a very pleasant experience. We went to Butternut ski resort (10 minute drive) which is a small family resort near by and it was a treat to return to the Inn at the end of the day and enjoy the... More

A perfect country getaway. Emphasis on the word "country" - meaning: charming, warm, inviting and yes - imperfect. I don't understand why guests feel the need to bash or complain when privately owned and operated B&Bs IN THE COUNTRY are imperfect, have a few tiny little crawling or flying guests ;), or need "updating". These "flaws" are what make the... More
