We took a long windy road up and over October Mountain and then another dark windy road and pulled up to this place in the middle of nowhere where the parking was so full that folks were starting to line the streets. It's a charming old farmhouse. Food is pricey but the portion was decent. Staff were friendly and offered... More

Overall its a good venue in the becket woods. They had live music playing and the staff was great.. I really liked the outdoor areas to sit out and chill while having a bottle of wine.

I had to sleep on it before writing this review. I woke up hoping it had been a bad dream, but no. Last night was the single most unpleasant restaurant experience I've ever had. Highlights were: a very nervous and pushy waitress who insisted we order quickly because (and yes she told us this) our table was reserved two hours... More

It was a big birthday for my partner and we went to celebrate at one of our favorite spots. It is over an hour drive so we only visit three or four times a year, keeping it special. In a matter of minutes, our favorite place was spoiled. We had our children, a sister and parents in their eighth decade... More

We loved this restaurant! Such a hidden gem in one of the Berkshires mountains - you feel like you keep driving and then suddenly it appears. The food was good, the atmosphere was fun and the outside firepit was a big hit. We would definitely return!

Very secluded, dark roads. Food is ok, very casual. The grounds are fabulous, but after dinner very dark. Wanted to go for lunch, but they don’t answer their phone.

As always the decor is campy and the grounds are beautiful. Two of four meals were great. The other two did not come out as ordered. Waitress offered to have them redone. Took 30 minutes and one was still wrong and the other was undercooked. First bill charged for the meals sent back and the replacements.

My fiancé and I had a gift certificate here and have always wanted to try it. We were also thinking that this night we would tour the property and reserve the place for our upcoming wedding ($15000 for just the venue and flowers without food) as we had it narrowed down. Though the staff was great, the owner Daniel scoffed... More

way off the beaten track is this homey restaurant with friendly service, good food, and beautiful gardens. Also a great history of big name musicians who have performed here
