Did I say awesome? I sure did. Awesome place, awesome innkeepers, and awesome experience. First of all, the inn is an old mansion converted to an inn. It has so much character and is positively charming. While it is old, everything is in working order, neat and clean. The floors creak and slope, but that just adds to the charm.... More

My family and I just spent the weekend at Federal House Inn. The new owners, Marcia and Ken are the best hosts! They would do anything within their power to make sure they take the best care of their guests. The breakfast was amazing. Afternoon wine and au d'oeuvres were awesome! After dinner on Saturday night, we joined all the... More

Georgia, Thank you so much for this review which we appreciate more than we can say. What was even better was what you did for us just by being here. Your girls were two of the finest young women I have ever met! The two of you should give classes on raising daughters. Hey, give them in the inn (marketing... More

As long-standing patrons of The Berkshires, we've enjoyed many of the region's world-class Inns and Hotels. But having discovered the Federal House Inn nearly a decade ago, our annual return always has the feeling of "coming home" to family. This year, we arrived with curiosity to see what new inn-keepers Marcia and Ken had in store for this architectural gem.... More

How does an innkeeper give a proper response to a review like this? Thank you seems so insufficient. I have your permission to quote you on our website Jenn and I intend to take you up on the offer as your eloquent words moved me and were far superior to anything I could write. Having you here was such a... More

Marcia and Ken are wonderful hosts and the Inn itself is beautifully decorated, light and airy. Our room was on the first floor and overlooked the gardens to the front. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room spacious. Marcia's breakfasts are delicious and we loved meeting other guests over a glass of wine at the end of a day... More

Thank you so much for these words!! I think it is probably not possible for anyone who hasn't had a bed and breakfast to know what it means to an innkeeper to read something like this. On a rough day my kids tell me "mom, go read your reviews"-- I will be taking their advice and rereading this one. I... More

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

Thank you SOOO much for this review! We very much appreciate it. I'm trying to figure out the best way to offer everyone a lighter breakfast option. You are exactly right in saying that we would gladly provide that if anyone requested. I probably should talk more with people on arrival about what we normally do and that they are... 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

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
