The service was excellent, from the moment we called to make a reservation until the moment we rolled out of the white gravel driveway to return home. The house is as beautiful as in the pictures, the rooms are furnished tastefully and are clean. Breakfast was excellent -- there was a set menu, prominently featuring creative and very pretty fruit dishes to start. The house is located right on Rt 102, which puts you in close reach of I-90 and only about twenty minutes' drive from Tanglewood -- yet our room was very quiet.
Besides the attractive and well-kept house and convenient location, the best feature of the Federal House Inn are the owners, Brian and Kolleen. They were very helpful, suggesting places to eat (including the wise advice to make a reservation well in advance) and hike (for example in Beartown State Forest, which begins just across the street). Their thoughtful and attentive approach to innkeeping came out in the small details, like offering a chocolate and brandy nightcap in the comfortable living room at the end of the evening, or providing a fridge for guest use, stocked with bottled water for guests to take with them. Best of all, they proved flexible and responsive when we wanted things differently than expected. In summary, a highly recommendable place!
