“Feel instantly at home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

I've been coming to Walker House for the past 12 years, and every time I step through the door, I instantly feel at home. Large fireplaces, wide porches, piles of books and friendly cats all contribute to a truly relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and decorated with antiques, in keeping with the history of the house. The inn is also walking distance to the shops and restaurants in downtown Lenox. Owners Peggy and Dick are warm, friendly hosts, and have their fingers on the pulse of the local arts scene. All in all, a great place to stay for the perfect Berkshire experience!

My husband & I head over to Lenox to attend the excellent concerts at Tanglewood in addition to local museums and just to wander the villages and take in historic Lenox.

Walker House is the perfect Inn to come home to after our days forays. Each of the rooms is named after a different composer and designed in period (the innkeepers obviously know their stuff). One finds lovely canopy beds, working fireplaces and huge bathtubs in the rooms.

The public areas are fun to relax in and explore, full of books and charming nick nacks. In addition, the innkeepers offer a huge video screen on which to watch a variety of dvds.

We love that Walker House is pet friendly - with several cuddly cats wandering through. We don't travel with pets, but have our own at home, so we appreciate the furry friends!

The Innkeepers, Peggy and Dick, are very helpful and pleasant, whether they are providing a lovely breakfast in their dining room or talking about the area that they so obviously love.

Overall, Walker House is wonderful all year round - an enhancement to a stay in the Berkshires or perhaps even a reason to plan a trip there!

I have stayed at Walker House several times and would never stay anywhere else. I have come to feel like family. This is not one of those slick modernized establishments, but rather makes you feel like you are being warmly welcomed into someone's home. Peggy and Dick are great hosts. The rooms are beautiful - I always request one with a working fireplace. Walker House is within easy walk of shops and restaurants. Tanglewood and several very interesting museums are within easy reach.

antique house in middle of lenox - friendly owners - room was large and comfortable - BEST COFFEE i have ever tasted in USA - rivaling Italian - large adjacent forest for dog stroll.
peggy (owner) is friendly and interesting and interested.
interior of house (from 1804) is pleasant and reflects the owners personality - feel "at home".

This 200 year old Inn provides a view of the past. The decor, the antique collections, the dim lights and the spacious rooms place us in the gracious living of the past. And yet our hosts, Peggy and Dick, are clearly TODAY!

my stay was made all the more enjoyable by the warmth of my welcome from Peggy the owner , room was spacious , overlooking the private woodland at the rear .Ideally situated for all the facilities of this charming town ,nothing was too much trouble breakfast most enjoyable providing a real chance to talk to other guests .
Peggy is a cat lover , there are numerous antiques & collectables accumulated over a period of time - several featuring cats her cats add personality , leading their own relaxed , languid lifestyle in what must be ideal surroundings .
There are several , shaded terraces , verandahs etc where you can spend a couple of hours reading or watching the abundant wildlife in the grounds .
All told , my stay was very enjoyable & relaxing - exactly what I wanted .
I will definately return in the not too distant future .
