When we arrived Tom, the host stated there had been a mistake with the booking and he almost did not have a room for us- except he updated us at no charge. We were put in the cottage cabin beside the main home. It was private and cozy. The host stated he and his wife had only recently taken over...

The owners exude warmth and welcoming friendliness from the moment you arrive. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It is accross the street from nice, gentle hiking trails. The historic district is right down the street to walk to dinner. Tanglewood is a short drive but wasn't open when we came. We will definitely be back to visit...

Thank you for the review. I think you had the very first rendition of the Rum and Raisin French toast...it has proven quite popular and features on the menu from time to time. Let us know when you are coming back and we can make sure that its on the menu for you.

We arrived as a walk in fairly late in the afternoon/early evening. Tom took us on a tour round the charming house and showed us a variety of rooms, all of which were lovely. The Inn itself is exactly what we had been looking for the area, it really is the quintessential New England Bed and Breakfast. It is a...

We loved this place. Easy 10 minute walk to town. Fabulous breakfasts and ongoing snacks throughout the day and evening. Rooms are roomy and well appointed, but the house is old so they're not modern, but they have all they need including super robes. There is ac in the rooms but not in the public spaces, which was not perfect,...

Thank you for the review, and so glad you loved the Birchwood Inn. You are absolutely right about the AC, and we want to let you know that the project to install new AC has started! So next summer we will be ready for you with new improved AC throughout the Inn and of course upgraded Wifi.

New owners Tom and Debbie are maintaining the highest level of service and comfort that we are used to at this fine Lenox, MA B&B.

My aunt and I were looking around for a place to stay for a night, back in October. When we entered the Birchwood, we immediately felt at home, looking at a tasteful mixture of antiques and decorations. The Birchwood has a professional feel about it in that it doesn't feel as though we're barging into someone's house, yet it is...

My partner and I stayed here this past weekend and it was just exquisite! We stayed in the Egleston room (complete with in-room wood fireplace!) and the room was huge!

We stayed for three days in this warm, comfortable, beautifully furnished historical house.

My wife and I recently stayed at Birchwood in the spacious Dana room. Working fireplace, modern bathroom, and charming sitting area. Perfect location to walk to town. Breakfasts were creative and delicious. The midnight snacks were a treat. I bought two dozen cookies to bring home! Couldn't have been more comfortable--thank you Ellen and team!
