My weekend at the Wainwright was terrific. Chris and Barb are fabulous hosts and their family works as a team to make guests feel comfortable and at home. The Inn is lovely with a wrap around porch that is the perfect place to spend a few relaxing hours on a summer afternoon. The Inn's location is perfect .. it is... More

This is our second year staying at the Wainwright with our cycling club on Memorial Day weekend. Chris and Barb are kind and courteous hosts and they prepared a delicious breakfast all three days. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the air-conditioning was a real plus this past weekend. They also have a very friendly black lab named Knox,... More

My wife and I are back for our 4th time. Wainwright is a charming blast from the past with updated conveniences. The new owners Chris and Barbara have done a great sprucing up the place with new quiet room heaters/ air conditioners, updated bathrooms (at least in the West Wing, where we stayed). When we arrived, Chris was updating these... More

We spent one night at the Wainwright Inn and had a lovely time. Chris and Barb we're welcoming and helpful in providing information about Great Barrington. The place was warm, clean, comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Our room had a fireplace which was very useful given the sub-zero temperatures at the time of our visit. Well situated, close to the center... More

We just had a lovely stay at the Wainwright Inn. Chris and Barb were wonderful hosts and the inn itself was beautiful. I loved the room where we stayed, the Edison room. Breakfast was delicious, especially the French toast. We would definitely stay there again the next time we're in the area.

We enjoyed Late fall weekend here at the Wainwright Inn. We were 2 couples and stayed in the carriage house. We loved our accommodations. It had 2 bedrooms with 2 private baths with a wonderful sitting area with a kitchenette. It was very relaxing to come back from our hikes to sit and enjoy our living space. Our rooms were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very pretty property but on a busy road with lots of traffic so not especially peaceful and didn't sleep well even with ear plugs. Slightly lukewarm reception when we arrived - perhaps because we were the only guests we took them by surprise! Room was ok - a little dated but having stayed in a... More

This is a quaint B&B with lots of history and wonderful hospitality. Breakfast was over the top (yogurt with berries and honey, waffles with choice of syrups, and pumpkin bread). Also loved the port and sherry offered in the parlor. Only complaint is that the rooms are a bit outdated and don't quite match the website photos. The blinds in... More
