The Historic Merrell Inn was a very nice place for us to stay for a Tanglewood weekend. Convenient to the Stockbridge and Lenox Museums, shops and gardens it provide great access to a wide variety of activities. The Inn is truly Colonial America with all the advantages and disadvantages the come with that. While the bathrooms are at best small you have to appreciate the old wood floors, antique caged bar (sorry no wine or other libations) and old dining room. The Innkeepers were very helpful and accommodating. While not perfect by any means it is a very good choice for a trip into the area.
