We had a delightful stay at the Wainwright Inn B & B… our room, which overlooked the wildflower garden, was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The room has a very comfortable bed, an electric fireplace, and a small television that I think gets every channel within 5,000 miles. The bathroom has a tub/shower. There is also a walk-in closet with a dresser. Until we went down to breakfast, we thought we might be the inn’s only guests. The inn is very quiet. We didn’t hear anybody else. The traffic going by on the Main Street through Great Barrington does not make the inn noisy. The owners, Chris and Barbara, are delightful! They are easy to chat with and they know the area well! They prepare and serve a wonderful breakfast. During our stay the breakfast included fresh fruit, juice, poached eggs served on English muffins with Canadien bacon, home fried potatoes, lemon wine cake, and a bottomless cup excellent coffee. Their greeter is a very gentle dog! The well-maintained, historic inn was established 10 years prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Chris and Barbara have owned the inn since 2015. They live on the property. We will stay here again on our travels through Massachusetts.…
We had a lovely stay and a very nice breakfast at this charming B & B. The room was very clean and air-conditioned with a mini split. Our bed was very comfortable and the garden view added to the room's ambience.
On our recent travels to the Cape we decided to stop halfway for a break in our 9 hour travel time. The town of Lenox was a perfect halfway point for us. Nestled in the Berkshires on a quite street sits this beautifully restored Inn built in 1766 what a beauty it is. We stayed in the Edison room on the first floor. A very large room with a very comfy queen size bed. Super soft sheets I am a stickler for great sheets. Bottled water and pretty glasses were set out on a pedestal table and a lovely note from the hostess. We had arrived late but she left us the key. We had a good nights sleep and the next morning joined other lodgers in the beautiful bright dining room for a home cooked breakfast of pancakes crispy bacon and diced fresh fruit with just a touch of fresh mint. Fresh brewed coffee awaited us in a carafe on our table. Barb brought us each a piece of lemon blueberry pound cake to finish out our meal, it was yummy. Chris is the designated chef and the pancakes were crispy but tender. Not bad for a retired mechanical engineer. They make the perfect team. Our shower was huge with the choice of 2 different shower heads. The history of the inn is fascinating. I highly recommend a stay here. Super clean, the gardens are full of colorful wild flowers in every color imaginable and the hosts Barb and Chris are super nice.…
A lovely location with even nicer owners. Very comfortable, clean, nice size rooms with ample closet space. Breakfast each day was fresh and tasty, and Barb was able to accommodate our dietary needs. The Inn is located within walking distance to town, and parking is available on site. We had AC, Wifi, and TV in our room.
The innkeepers are friendly and accommodating. It was such a delight to spend time in their sitting room with a well-attended fire burning in the fireplace. Breakfast is exceptional--I swear the best buttermilk pancakes I have ever had, along with a fresh fruit compote. The inn is well located for walks into the town of Great Barrington with its unique stores and restaurants.
Absolutely fabulous way to cap the night on a Berkshires experience. Classic 1766 inn infused with American history, yet lovely renovated throughout to be bright and clean. Beautiful details such as retention of old radiators and historical tiles in bathroom. Lovely couple and staff host. Breakfast included delectable homemade buttermilk pancakes. Gorgeous gardens outside generate greens used in the kitchen.
Adding to the picturesque beauty of this quaint New England Town is the Wainwright Inn. Restored beautifully, with period appropriate furnishings that invite your attention at every turn. Clean, comfortable and alluring is the best way to describe this lovely property. We were warmly greeted every morning by Chris and Barb, the Innkeepers. The richly appointed dining room was spotless and tables were set with China, silver and linens. Breakfast was served individually, freshly prepared with fresh garden ingredients and specialty items from the area. Our breakfast each morning was delicious and prepared with the same attention that is reflected in every aspect of this delightful Inn. Kudos to Chris and Barb! Excellent job.
We had a lovely two night stay at the Wainwright Inn this weekend, attending a friend's wedding. The inn itself was very charming and Chris & Barb were incredibly kind. The breakfast both mornings was the real show-stopper. Both morning had perfectly prepared beautifully plated dishes. The breakfast potatoes and pancakes were both the best that I've ever eaten.
Our first trip to the Berkshires, visiting from Cape Cod, was completely enjoyable, enhanced by our stay at the Wainwright Inn. Chris and Barb provided wonderful breakfasts and were very personable. Our room, the Garden Room, was very comfortable and the Inn was well-located. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the porch. A great place to stay!
We were there for a birthday special weekend and we could not have asked for anything better than the stay we had there. The accommodations were superb and the breakfast absolutely delicious. Chris and Barbara are the two most gracious and thoughtful people when it comes accommodating their guests. If you have the chance, this is the place to stay. John and Linda
