We visited the Egremont Village Inn for the first time due to the mostly positive reviews and its proximity to nearby Great Barrington, where we attended a Saturday night show by 70s folksinger Tom Rush. Our stay there was quite enjoyable. The 1700s era house was quaint and charming, and my wife was fascinated by the history of the building. Gigi greeted us upon our Friday afternoon arrival, and gave us a quick tour and all the details we needed to know for our stay. We chose the Mt. Everett room on the second floor, mainly for the large comfortable bed and the clawfoot tub. Coffee and snacks were available all day in the living room, which was a big plus for those of us who crave caffeine. The breakfast buffet was delicious both days, with fresh bread, muffins, fruit, and some tasty egg casseroles. The big bonus for us was the show we saw Friday night at the Barn. The Pinedrop Band did bluegrass versions of the Beatles and Pink Floyd, which were as entertaining as they were eccentric. Alex, the bartender, made sure we had all the beverages we needed, and was an interesting conversationalist as well. The food was surprisingly good, too! All in all, the Egremont Village Inn was a big part of our perfect Massachussets weekend. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended! Try it and see for yourself.
My husband and I spent one night at the Inn last weekend. It is a lovely place with the kinds of nooks and crannies that help transport you to a different time and place. We were greeted by one of the owners, Gigi, who was friendly and welcoming, checked us in, gave us a bit of the history of the Inn, and made us feel right at home. In addition, she served us a wonderful breakfast the next morning (farm fresh eggs, homemade granola, and the like). We went to a performance at the Barn - a wonderful, intimate live music venue which also serves a limited bar and dinner menu. As a bonus, for us, we went Spring skiing at Butternut, outside of Great Barrington, only a few minutes away. All in all, we had a great stay.
So I get shown to my small partially underground room with even smaller bathroom. There was no refrigerator, no iron, no T.V., no ice maker for public use, no landline phone, no cell service, very weak internet connection and a shower stall about the size of an old phone booth. Any questions?
I thought breakfast was good although sparse and scheduled quite late - probably more to suit the staff than the guests. They have a ping pong table set up which I was scheduled to play on with a friend but subsequently cancelled after I noted the condition of the paddles and the net which made it virtually unusable. The Barn next door on the property serving decent food and live music once in a while is a nice addition to the Inn...but not for guests that stay on Monday or Tuesday when they are closed.
Finally, think twice about booking the Inn through a third party as they couldn't seem to reconcile the the original price charged with their own idea of the charge. I had to show receipts to prove what I actually owed on checkout. I paid for two nights but stayed only one. The innkeeper never answered my question if they were able to re book the room thus saving me the second charge for an unused room.
In short, any one of the chain Inns in town will have more to offer for the money in my opinion. I get the feeling that the owners are overwhelmed and do not quite seem to enjoy what they are doing.
My husband and I recently spent a weekend at the Inn. We arrived Friday early evening and had a delicious dinner at "The Barn" on the premises (best caprese salad I have had in a long time) and listened to a terrific blues band. The atmosphere in "The Barn" is warm and inviting. Both Saturday and Sunday we awoke to a delicious breakfast in the sunny dining room with a generous selection of hot and cold foods. The bed in our room was extremely comfortable. We had a very relaxing and fun filled weekend. Thank you Nick, Jenny, and Gigi, we will be back.
Very comfortable accommodations, with friendly staff. The Bershires are a great place to visit and the Egremont Village Inn is only a short ride from downtown Great Barrington where you can find a large selection of restaurants and shops.
Previously known as “The Weathervane Inn”, The Egremont Village Inn, a 12 room bed & breakfast, was purchased in 2012 by its current owners, and has been undergoing extensive renovations to restore the …Moreproperty.
