It is important to say at the outset that I would absolutely want to stay at this Inn again. The Innkeeper Stan is a gentleman - kind and welcoming - and he is running a stellar property that is ideally located in the heart of Lenox. We had a lovely two night stay there and would recommend it to anyone coming to the area.
So why not a 5 rating?
There was a curious lack of attention to detail in some areas that knocked off the 5th, none of which would deter me from a return visit but which I think it might be useful to be aware of. For example, there was a shower curtain ring missing (very odd), the toilet paper holder was installed crookedly (it worked so no complaints - just a bit off), no lids were provided for the to-go coffee cups (making carrying two back to one's room a bit tricky), and in the King Room 1, there was no coffee table on which to place the cups brought back to the room - despite a couch and chair being there to sit on.
It is clear that a great deal of heart went into this Inn, and I think you'll have a wonderful stay there - we certainly did. It isn't perfect - what is? - but the imperfections in no way detract from the experience.
