We are not regulars to the world of Bed and Breakfast hotels. In fact this was our first time. My wife made the arrangements to stay at 1862 Seasons and I was a bit apprehensive. All I can say is that we were blown away by this place!
Any business is made by the team that makes it run, and this team is world class. Camillo the Inn Keeper and this "A" team with Constantine and Paul are a dream team! They all make you feel welcome, and they serve each guest with care and understanding that they want to make your time in the Berkshires special.
We arrived late in the afternoon, and were greeted with a wine and cheese plate and our choice of beverage. 1862 has an array of open space and rooms to choose from in the "public space". We had our drink on this lovely screened in porch. We got great advice about restaurants in the area and ideas of how to spend our evening. These guys take great care to be knowledgeable without being opinionated.
Our room was very comfortable, the bedding is luxurious and had all the amenities of a well appointed 4 or 5 star hotel room.
Each morning during our stay we had an amazing breakfast. Fresh squeezed juices, made to order omelets, challah French toast, chocolate homemade pastries. The guys are so attuned to their guests, one of the patrons wanted grapefruit juice so during the breakfast Paul ran to store for grapefruits! They not only had made it for this one guest but also had anticipated that other guests might want this juice and had bought enough for everyone!
Prior to our stay we dropped our kids off to sleep away camp and we wanted to mail them some post cards. We asked Camillo where we could buy some cards and he said don't worry about that, and he goes to his cabinet and pulls out some wonderful post cards and offers to go to the post office and mail them out. Again another example of their focus and dedication to service.
We rarely write reviews on Trip Advisor. But this visits really merits a rave review. We are huge fans of 1862 Seasons. The owners has hired a group of guys that are dedicated to service, and have created an intimate place that made our trip to the Tanglewood area so much fun! I have to say Don't walk but Run to this B and B! They will make your visit or occasion a memorable one! We plan to return often. French toast, chocolate homemade pastries and
