We stayed at Baird Tavern in early October. It was comfortable, welcoming and truly full of the character of of the late 1700's. It was not cluttered with stuff, yet everywhere one turned, there was a piece of history. I loved the warm wood and the clean, pleasant smell of the walls and floors. Our room was wonderful and while perfectly in the period, it had a very comfortable bed and all of the amenities - we felt nothing lacking.
Carolyn is a perfect hostess, respectful of privacy and caring of her guests. She recommended a great hike. Wonderful breakfast nook, looking out on the gardens and sunrise.
The Tavern is also nicely located, near the lakes in the Berkshires, Stockbridge, Lennox, etc.
