I had made reservations for two consecutive weekends in Room 10 because I needed to be close to Stockbridge and Lenox for business-related events. I had previously stayed at the Merell in 2001 or 2002. While the inn did not leave a lasting impression on me then, it appears that little if anything has changed over the years with the... More

Thanks to Carole Owens at Country B&B, I was referred to Merrell and was able to secure a room for a last minute weekend at Tanglewood. George and Andrew are great hosts; right away, they make you feel as if you are family and will go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. My room... More

The Historic Merrell Inn was a very nice place for us to stay for a Tanglewood weekend. Convenient to the Stockbridge and Lenox Museums, shops and gardens it provide great access to a wide variety of activities. The Inn is truly Colonial America with all the advantages and disadvantages the come with that. While the bathrooms are at best small... More

The Merrell Inn has a prime location, within driving distance of the highest peak and waterfalls in Massachusetts, surrounded by a plenitude of theaters, and just a stones throw from shopping. I would describe the mill as quaint and charming. We stayed on the third flooring room 5, it is equipped with an individual a/c and own bathroom with stand... More

Easy to find and centrally located, the Merrell Inn is truly a gem. We were greeted by George, the innkeeper, who graciously offered recommendations to fill the time we spent off the mountain. He was always available to offer directions, not to mention and a wine shop or restaruant along the way! He made us dinner reservations at a French... More

I stayed at the Historic Merrell Inn for three days in July; it has become an annual, highly anticipated trip for me. The innkeepers could not be more accommodating. Andrew is always ready with great suggestions for new sites to see in the Berkshires, which is a wonderful area for a wide variety of vacation experiences. Breakfast is very tasty... More

Having run two successful guesthouses on Cape Cod for 17 years, I have a little understanding on how to run and operate a guesthouse. We chose the Merrell Inn for a long weekend in the Berkshires, mainly because of it's location and the past reviews we read on Trip Adviser. Well, the Merrell Inn is certainly historic judging from the... More

If Steven M ran two successful guest houses on Cape Cob for over 17 years, then I’m sure he appreciated feedback from guests while they were there so any issues or questions could be addressed and remedied while they were there. In an area like the southern Berkshires we have many attractions, hiking and museums within just a short drive.... More

The inn is very simple and basic (small room/bathroom, loud AC, can hear footsteps coming from the floor above, can hear cars passing by). Room was neatly arranged although there was a hint of odor due to the humidity. There are many inns in the area and I wish I had done more research as I stopped by a few... More

A little over eleven years ago when we took over the Inn my Mom gave me a sign that we put in the breakfast room over the fireplace along with several others. "Guests bring us Happiness, Some by coming and some by going." As we talk with guests many ask what percentage of each do we find, and 99% are... More

The inn is indeed historic (unlike many that make this claim) - interesting history, engaging and informative host (Andrew). We stayed here on our honeymoon tour of New England and were delighted by our choice. Andrew coundn't do enough to ensure our stay was worthwhile, and should we ever foind ourselves out that way again we won't hesitate to stay... More

This was a lovely inn. We stayed 2 nights on a trip to the Berkshires. The host is gregarious and tries to help you find things to do in the area. We already had plans but appreciated his helpfulness anyway. The room was great although a bit noisy as the building is close to the road (as are many old... More
