“Peaceful getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Not a big fan of B&B's but this place was very nice and quiet. My wife and I spent 3 nights in one of the larger rooms, king bed, 2 arm chairs, small sofa, fireplace and private balcony. The free breakfast was amazing with a great selection of home cooked entrees. Unfortunately it was rainy or overcast most of the time so we were unable to use the new outdoor heated pool. Great selection of restaurants in the Lenox area. Only two hours from our home so will put it on the top of our "getaway" weekend list.

Room Tip: All rooms looked nice but we loved the larger corner room.(#14&15)

Our recent stay at the Garden Gables Inn was excellent. The room was spacious with many amenities. Denise, the innkeeper, was extremely helpful and gave excellent recommendations for dinners and excursions. The breakfast was served in an enclosed porch with private tables for each party. The food was fresh and service excellent.

Our third stay at the Garden Gables, and once again, Denise and her staff proved that this IS where you should stay when looking for an inn in the Berkshires! On this weekend I was attending a board meeting/retreat - and was so impressed with the planning and attention to detail - the rooms, set ups, dinner and breakfast were excellent, and the cocktails and appetizers in the sherry room - wow! You will feel relaxed and more than a little bit pampered when you stay at the Garden Gables Inn.
P.S. Location - right in Lenox, walk to everything... yet quiet, beautifully landscaped grounds - you relax the moment you drive in!

This was my first time staying in Lenox and I think we picked the perfect place. For a winter weekend the Inn was warm and cozy. The breakfast was delicious and catered to my gluten and lactose allergies. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We indulged in a couples massage which was the best massage I have ever had. We stayed in the main house and it was very quiet. The owners also have an Orchard/winery that has x/c skiing and showshoeing. A great place to spend the afternoon. We will go back!

Stayed on 2/20/14 and had a fantastic stay. Great staff, beautiful cottage room, and breakfast was top shelf. Main house is just steps away from cottage where there is sherry, cookies, coffee, tea, DVDs, and more. A great place to stay in Lenox.

This was the third year we have returned to enjoy the Garden Gables Inn. The atmosphere provides such a calm environment and the staff is totally there to make your stay easy, relaxed and without a care in the world. We prefer the suite so that we have a common room, fireplace and separate bedrooms. Breakfast is delicious, with diverse selections cooked to order. I recommend the Banana Walnut pancake and/or the poached eggs on spinach and tomato and freshly squeezed OJ. Our waitress was soooo sweet. Denise, the owner, is organized, warm and generous. A real plus is the connection with a local orchard, winery, cross country ski slope where you have total access to slopes and free wine tasting.

Forget researching further and stay at Garden Gables.

Room Tip: Look closely at their website for the differences between rooms.

We've been visiting Garden Gables for the past 2 years on our anniversary. The 1st visit we were in the inn. This time we were in the cottage. Both were wonderful. Winter is always a great time for the Berkshires as it's quiet and serene. Staying at Garden Gables is a real treat because you are really taken care of. The rooms are comfortable and the fireplaces make for great romantic respite. The service was top notch. Always a yes attitude. Denise and Liz are "johnny on the spot" with great suggestions. They make you feel you are the only people staying there. Breakfast is yummy. If you have an opportunity check out the Old Inn on the Green for a real fine dinner. I hope we can get back there each year. Great value with their 2 nights and get 3rd one free,
