Contrary to the pictures on the website, the reality of the inn is quite different. Charming on the outside (from a distance) and tired-looking on the inside. The place is well kept but definitely needs major upgrades. It has also been for sale for over a year, which indicates the owners are not ready to sink more money into upgrading it and it shows. I think minimal upkeep is the motto of the Windflower Inn. Bathrooms were a bit musty and dated. Furniture is old and in dire need of rejuvenation. For the amount of money you pay, it's definitely not worth what you get.
Breakfasts are not flexible (each day is a different meal like it or not) and the owner's wife is probably the least accommodating host in the Berkshires and is downright rude at times, feeling you unwelcome although you are paying hand over fist for a night's stay. Her husband is nice and charming but you hardly see him at all, to the detriment of the guests. And don't expect special discounts for faithful customers or returning ones, there are none! Unless there are no other inns available in the area, you can certainly have a more pleasant stay elsewhere.
Warning : If you're into wallpaper you will be in heaven in this inn. Unfortunately the choice of decor could be debated.
