Surrounded by trees with hammocks beneath, green grass, soft wildflowers, and a little brook that you can hear babbling in the fall and spring. There is the main lodge or stay in a rustic cottage with your family. There is free wifi, but this is truly a place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy nature.... More

This is an old facility, so do not expect new and shinny. That said, it’s a clean and very friendly place. We were in one of the cabins and as we sat on the front porch in the rain, my wife said “I feel like we’ve landed in Dirty Dancing.” Nope, no floor show in the evening and not many... More

Hi Chip! Thank you for the review. I'm glad you appreciate the rustic charm of Race Brook Lodge! And it's great that you enjoyed the breakfast. What improvements would you recommend we make to earn a 5th star from you? So sorry you got rained out... I hope you can come back again soon! All the best, Casey More

We stayed 2 nights at the lodge. Pricing was much more reasonable than similar or lower quality inns in or near Lenox and Great Barrington. The location was convenient from the New York area and was a good launching point for antique shopping and a visit to Tanglewood (about a 30 minute drive, although the roads are dark at night)....

Hi Thank you so much for your post! I'm glad you enjoyed the hammocks. And thanks for the feedback on the bathroom tiles and hot water fluctuations! Which room did you stay in? We are working hard to improve our infrastructure and amenities. Hopefully we'll have earned that 5th star when you come back next time! :-) More

Room was very comfortable with a nice blend of rustic farmhouse with a really comfortable bed. Breakfast wasn't fancy or gourmet, but fresh and ample. staff was welcoming and efficient. A really nice spot off the beaten path in the Berkshires

The room was adorable. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean. Very relaxing. We were in heaven. We rocked in the rocking chairs on the front porch. We hiked to the waterfall and saw spectacular views. Had a refreshing dip in the pool afterwards. Can't wait for another... More

It was like stepping into 1930. As the rain pelleted the tin roof we, and our 3 iron bedsteads and flower print art and bedding, along with our two dogs on the wool rugs, almost remembered what it was like back in those days. Of course, we are too young for it, but the whole time-travel idea was fun. Good... More

Used it as a night before resting place before a hike to Mt Everett. Lodge has it's own connector to the trail. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, Room 32 was a second floor unit, self-contained, clean, good water pressure and hot water.

We like to think of RBL as our home in the Berkshires, because that's how it feels. In any season it is a perfect peaceful retreat - with or without our son... hiking to the falls, lazing in one of the hammocks, reading on a couch in front of a roaring fire or dining right on site at the tasty...

My husband and I came here for one-night getaway and found it to be completely magical—like going back in time. Ou room was unique, quaint and comfortable, breakfast was delicious, and can't say enough about the gentle hike up to the waterfall. We would love to come back, next time with our kids.
