What we loved: Proximity to Tanglewood, charm of old house, excellent private porch (in Room 4 we had half of it separated by a lattice barrier). We had rain the first night and kept the door open to the fresh breeze and the rain falling through the trees outside our door. Lenox is great, there was a big crafts fair, we checked out Kripalu, went to Jacob's Pillow for dance, took in a BSO rehearsal on a glorious Saturday morning, had chocolate at Chocolate Springs Cafe. Can't beat the location. Friendly fellow guests, friendly hostess and servers. Nice common area, space on wraparound porch and in living room to hang. Food was very good first morning, and fine the second morning. There was an afternoon snack of tea breads and cookies plus a refrigerator for guests. I would unquestionably go back.
What we think could be improved upon: Despite the wonderful porch in Rm. 4, the step down to the bathroom and the clawfoot tub (which Amy was very clear about when we reserved that room) were charming but a little inconvenient. My husband wishes the breakfasts were family style so we could meet more folks. I thought the entrance hallway needed vacuuming when we arrived. Our room itself was quite clean. All-in-all a fine spot to spend a getaway weekend in.
