Certificate of Excellence
The Berkshires are a glorious destination year round and The Wainwright Inn is the perfect place to launch your vacation. Tanglewood is just minutes away with summer concerts and picnics on the lawn. Enjoy performances by top name performers at the Berkshire Theater Festival, Shakespeare and Company, or the Barrington Stage Company. For the golfers in the family The Egremont Country Club features a challenging 18-hole golf course. A twenty-five minute drive and a small hike takes you to Bash Bish Water Falls. Visit The Berkshire Botanical Gardens and educate yourself and you children about the plants that thrive in the Berkshires. A twenty minute drive takes you to The Prime Outlets at Lee which offers great shopping at discounted prices. The Berkshires are home to nearly one hundred restaurants, including many fine dinning experiences. Canoeing, swimming, fishing, and horseback riding, are also available in the Berkshires. Take long summer walks or just a relaxing drive through the lovely countryside. Winter means skiing and crisp country air. The Inn is within minutes of downhill skiing at Catamount, Ski Butternut, Otis Ridge and Bousquet. The Berkshires also have miles of cross-country ski trails graded for all levels of ability. Spring means refreshing walks through the countryside, watching the woods turn green again. Stop into one of the many antique shops, auction houses or art galleries, most of which are open year round. Or shake off those winter doldrums with a spring weekend spent quietly rocking on our porch listening to the birds. Autumn brings flaming color to the hills, and our foliage season is packed with harvest cornucopia of activity. Fairs and seasonal events abound, and roadside stands are bursting with produce and cider. Pick your own apples at a local orchard, or hike through one of our many back roads and parks. Fall is a great time to visit Hancock Shaker Village or the nearby Norman Rockwell Museum. During the warm summer months you can swim in a nearby lake or stream. Take a hike to Bash Bish water falls and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Relax on our wrap-around porches with a cool drink, or just relax inside with the comfort of air-conditioning.

We visited the area in late February and what a perfect spot. Close to town (walk 1/2 mile), near everything, room and amenities were wonderful, fire in the evening in the common space living room, and a wonderful homemade breakfast. The owners were a delight and Chris was friendly, helpful with restaurants and the area as well as making sure ll was good with the room. Highly recommend!

We recently stayed at this charming B&B for a 2 night leaf peeping and easy hiking getaway. The owners Chris and Barb were very helpful, gave us great tips on things to do, and places to eat. Lovely caring people! The rooms were a blend of old charm and modern convenience. Beds were very comfortable, with fresh clean linens, and the breakfasts were delicious. The location was terrific - just a few blocks to the town center, and a short drive to hiking trails and other activities. We will definitely go back to the Wainwright!

Lovely visit at quaint bed and breakfast. Friendly owners and rooms have a feeling of going back a century but with all the comforts of today! Breakfast cooked as you order although slightly limited in choice. Enjoyable visit

Fantastic experience! Beautifully maintained building, great room, and even better gourmet breakfasts. Location was perfect for all our hiking and ‘leaf peeping’ adventures. Short walk to downtown Great Barrington.
