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

This B&B was everything we could expect. We have come to expect a lot from our B&Bs and this one lives up to the high standards we expect. The breakfasts were good, in a friendly environment where we could enjoy conversation with other travelers and share experiences. The owners obviously cared about the house, their guests and their community.

A charming 1820's manor house with lots of character and welcoming hosts. The small touches made all the difference; enjoying a glass of wine & conversation with fellow guests was a great way to start the evening and get some tips for things to do. Bottled water, coffee and tea were always available, and breakfast was delicious. Each room is... More

Our stay at the Federal House Inn was perfect in every way. Our hosts were helpful and very friendly. Our room, Yale Hill Room was in the back of the house where it was quiet, cozy and overlooked the hill behind. The breakfast was excellent and very filling as well as tasty. Brandy is set out all day as well... More

Well managed B&B by attentive, approachable you unintrusive hosts. Visiting and restaurant recommendations on arrival. Conveniently located a mile east of the charming town of Stockbridge. The building dates from the 1820s and retains that period charm whilst providing comfortable and modern facilities. Breakfast was well original, well presented and filling. If you want a food mountain, find a diner.... More

Federal House is an impressive mansion that has been extensively updated. Situated in a convenient location, it provides very comfortable accommodations. The breakfast is special. Wine and snacks in the evening are appreciated, too. Brian and Kolleen really make you feel welcome. Highly recommend.

My husband and I stayed at Federal House Inn as it was close to a wedding in Lenox to which we were invited; we happened upon it after googling "B&B Lenox." Whoa, we hit the jackpot! We were charmed by every aspect of the inn in general and the innkeepers in particular. Brian and Coleen are super people, and they... More
