My husband and I stayed here due to the Inn's close proximity to Tanglewood. We stayed in the Captain's Room, which we were told ahead of time is very small. The size of the room was indeed small, but that was not the issue. The walls were so soft in some spots due to water damage, that the wallpaper no longer stuck to it, and there were spots of mold growing on the walls. The one window in the room had such a flithy window treatment that it had become stained a brownish yellow. The very nice oak chest of drawers was dingy on the surface as well. The bathroom was tiled, and in need of a good scrubbing. The towels were thin, small and none too plentiful. The remainder of the home was dusty and full of cobwebs. Just generally dirty. As for breakfast - we were told that it was served from 8:30 am to 10:30 am. We sat to eat at around 9:15 am. There were an assortment of store bought coffee cakes, bagels, cereals and english muffins (that you had to stand and toast yourself) and very few home-cooked choices....some hard boiled eggs that we had to crack ourselves, and what hot entrees that were served (only 2), were cold by the time we got there. And by the way, it was served buffet style.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Whistler. Close to Tanglewood and all major Berkshire cultural venues, Whistler's Inn captures the warmth and elegance of a bygone era. On six acres of gardens and woodlands and two blocks from the center of Lenox, this quiet antique and art-filled retreat has an extensive library and French music room with a Steinway grand piano. A buffet breakfast is served with recipes inspired by the cook's world travels (Spain, France, Israel, South America, Japan and Morocco). ... more less
