The new owners, Marcia and Ken, are wonderful. They are friendly and very committed to ensure our comfort. The breakfasts cannot be beat. Beautiful rooms. Great location for access to the area's attractions. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Needed a quick one night stay in Lee with my husband and pre-teen son. New owners were lovely and helpful. They recently took over the inn and have totally redecorated in a clean, spare style with a lovely combination of antiques and clean mid-century style pieces. I didn't see the place before they took it over, but understand it previously... More

I had a great experience at the Federal House Inn in Lee, MA. Ken and Marcia were delightful hosts that were always willing to help when needed. We loved the perks of complimentary wine and snacks at 5pm and the chocolates in our room. The room was even more beautiful than I had seen in pictures and the beds were... More

Absolutely lovely with a wraparound porch and plenty of white chairs to seat and relax. We were welcomed by Marcia and Ken, as we entered the beautiful marble step entrance the foyer that is decorated with Americana antiques. I love the antiques that makes it a home not a museum.

Thank you so much Suzanne! Having the two of you here was an absolute delight. You are so incredibly talented. Even the two pictures that you posted reflect your artisitic talent. I loved them.

We spent one night to attend a Tanglewood concert. It was very convenient because there is less traffic taking the back roads from the inn compared to where many of hotels are located. More importantly, we had a lovely stay. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. When we arrived in the late afternoon, there was wine and delicious treats... More

Thank you so much for this review!! I love the room you were in particularly now that it is one of the ones with the new split units for individual cooling/heating. However, it is in the front of the house and maybe next time we should try one of the back rooms? We will do anything that you think might... More

The pictures do not do this place justice. The large, airy living areas, the fabulous porches - we felt immediately comfortable when we walked in. The wine and snacks in the afternoon were perfect - especially when enjoyed on one of the porches! The rooms were bright and lovely. To spend the night in June with the windows open -... More

The Federal House Inn - what a lovely place to spend the night in the Berkshires! We only stopped for one night (we wished we could have stayed longer) and were lucky to find The Federal House. The owners were super friendly and very helpful, their suggestions on where to eat, what to see, etc were right on the money.... More

Congratulations to Marsha and Ken...the new owners of the Federal House Inn. We've never been there before so we can't compare but they are absolutely gracious, warm, and very accommodating. We were given a tour of the house on arrival and made to feel very welcome. They are bringing their own personalities to the property and making very nice changes... More
