After hiking in the mountains, my wife, nephew, and I rested and recovered in clean, comfortable rooms at the classic Lantern House Motel. Here we found quiet economical accommodations with modern comforts in the pricey Berkshires of western Massachusetts and a friendly owner attentive to our needs, especially in locating good local restaurants. If you're coming to the area and don't want to shell out $200-plus to stay in an inn and wish to avoid chain hotels, Lantern House is an excellent lodging choice. One caution: beware that to reduce costs/energy use during the slow offseason, the owner shaves a few services, such as shutting down the ice machine and unplugging room refrigerators.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

If it's the outdoors you like, there is canoeing, biking or hiking trails. The winter season provides you an abundance of cross-country and downhill skiing nearby. ... more less
