“My favorite B&B/Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2010

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.

Walker House offers excellent hospitality, lovely decor and hospitable Innkeepers. It is walking distance to town and excellent restaurants. I cannot imagine staying anywhere else.

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 .

We've been staying at Walker House every summer for approximately 18 years. It's one our favorite places to visit. We look forward to seeing the owners each year as well as staying in their lovely inn.

We stayed at the Walker House for 3 nights. Peggy, the owner, was warm, friendly and very hospitable. We chose the Walker House for its location and because it allowed dogs. On seeing the room we were mildly disappointed. There was a hole in the ceiling in the bathroom from a prior leak and the doorknob on the closet hung. The first night to say that the bed creaked doesn't do it justice. It was loud every time either of us moved. It was also
very uncomfortable - so much so that we considered leaving the next morning. We stayed
because of our Havanese.
