The Inn is a delightful place to stay. It is just down the road from Stockbridge and many attractions in the Berkshires without being in a congested area. The inn is beautifully appointed with many nice amenities. Wine and cheese and crackers are served at 5 PM daily in the lovely living room. This Oct was our second stay there... More

Went for the weekend to admire the foliage and found Federal House to be a perfect place to really appreciate the beauty of the Berkshires. Cozy and beautifully appointed, hosts Kolleen and Brian make sure amenities are readily available. Breakfasts, served by friendly staff in a beautiful dining room, are creative and delicious and the wine and cheese, set in... More

Spent two nights here while passing through the Berkshires and we enjoyed an exceptional stay. Hosts Brian and Kolleen were very friendly and welcoming. Our skylight room was spacious for the three of us with gorgeous four poster beds, two bathrooms (!) and a sitting room. We couldn't have asked for more. Breakfast was served in the elegant dinning room... More

A spacious and elegant hotel. Lovely breakfasts, different every day. A particularly nice touch is that they put out wine and cheese at 5.00pm every day so all the guests congregate and chat. The only slight disappoint was that the hotel is about 3 miles away from Stockbridge where the nearesr bars and restaurants are. There is one restaurant across... More

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 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
