My husband and I have been coming to the Berkshires since our honeymoon 48 years ago and now know we have found our " home away from home ". The Birchwood Inn is beautifully decorated, charming , comfortable and inviting. Our room was so pretty with hand painted flowers on the walls. The bathroom was huge and so clean. We spent many hours on the wonderful porch,having conversations with new friends and enjoying home baked goods. The breakfasts were delicious, sometimes sweet, sometimes savory but always amazing , the best we have ever had at any Inn. Before coming we were asked about dietary restrictions and our needs were always accommodated. I'm still dreaming about the key lime pie , the date nut bread , the fruit gazpacho, actually everything we had for breakfast and afternoon tea on the porch.
The Inn is ideally located, a short walk to town and close to Tangelwood. And when you return from the concerts or theater there are home baked cookies or other delicious cakes waiting for you in their pantry. We were able to use a refrigerator in the pantry for our picnic food.
The most wonderful part of our experience was meeting Ellen, the owner and chef as well as her staff. We were welcomed so warmly that we felt at home immediately. Ellen and her staff could not have done more to make our stay so filled with happy memories. Ellen is a remarkable women and lovingly puts her heart as well as her culinary skills into making the Inn so special. There is attention to every detail and it is done with warmth and caring and a wonderful sense of humor.
We can still smell the comforting aromas of her baking as we came down for breakfast, we can still see the beautiful flowers in the garden and feel the warmth that Ellen has created at Birchwood. We cannot wait to return.
The Inn is ideally located, a short walk to town and also near Tangelwood.
