“Comfortably Adorable”
Reviewed December 1, 2009

Almost all the inns where I've stayed have been either very adorable, but somewhat lacking in amenities, or have had so many modern conveniences that they felt inauthentic. The Rookwood Inn is somehow able to strike a perfect balance between both. All the common areas are filled with cute furniture and decorations, but not cluttered. There's also a refrigerator and microwave for guests to use if they have leftovers from one of the restaurants in town. Our bedroom was gorgeous - somehow both cozy and spacious at the same time. And the bathroom was perhaps the nicest one I've seen in any B&B: enormous, with a pedestal sink and clawfoot tub, and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was delicious both mornings - a strata one day, and belgian waffles the next. They even ask you to sign up for one of three breakfast times the night before, in order to make sure they have the right amount of hot food for everyone. The innkeepers really seem have thought of everything their guests could want ahead of time. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone.

My husband and I have stayed at The Rookwood for many summers now when we travel to The Berkshires to enjoy the music/theater and art and dance offerings.This Fall however we booked three rooms and met our children there for the Thanksgiving holiday.As always the hospitality and the facilities were beautiful, comfortable and a pleasure just to 'sit around and relax' in.It felt like we were home away from home.Five year old Charlotte decided she wasn;t going to leave but rather would stay forever in her fairy princess castle.We would not ever even consider staying anywhere else.Convenient as well as absolutely beautiful.We cannot say enough about Amy and her staff....they are perfect hosts that know just how to make our stay perfect!We will be back next summer and the children have decreed that this is a Thanksgiving Tradition for the Byrne family!

The service at the Rookwood Inn was absolutely incredible! Amy & her staff were so accomodating in every way...Amy provided a delicious gluten-free breakfast for me daily and even packed one to go when we had to fast and leave early for lab work! She had great information on restaurants including menu's, locations, & phone numbers! Our beautiful victorian bedroom was a dream to come home to every day! The atmosphere was one of beauty, warmth, comfort, relaxation, and security to name just a few... The location was fantastic...we walked everywhere except when having lunch at the Kripula Center. There was a nice pharmacy just 1/2 block away with select groceries! Everyday there were two bottles of water in the room. We loved the entire experience at the Rookwood including Amy's warmth and sincere desire to accomodate us! What a beautiful memory...We definitely want to return and will of course stay at the Rookwood Inn! Highly Recommended! Karla D.

I have been a frequent quest at Rookwod for almost 10 years. Each recuring trip is like returning to my imaginary summer home, including staff! Both the Inn and the staff are wonderful, and the location could not be more perfect.

We found the Rookwood to be everything advertised and more. Attention to decor, details, and hospitality were first class. Even the weather cooperated in March and we were able to sit out on the front porch and enjoy our wine each afternoon. The Rookwood is a huge house yet felt cozy and comfortable. The large living room is decorated with several seating areas so many people can enjoy it.

We were there on a weekend when it wasn't busy so Amy, the proprietor, graciously took the time to show us the other rooms. One is better than the other and it would be difficult to say which is the most beautiful. We were in the Williams Suite on the first floor and happily it looks exactly as pictured on the website and was very comfortable.. However, because of my rememberance of Rapunzel, the next time we stay I will definitely want to stay in Revels Retreat which has the circular sitting room. So romantic.

Service was also exceptional. There is a guest refrigerator stocked with complimentary drinks and a table set up with glasses and wine openers. And the location is perfect. You can park your car and walk into the charming little town of Lenox. Thank you, Amy, for a wonderful getaway.

What a delightful welcoming place. As we arrived and walked up onto the front porch, with its comfortable wicker furniture, we knew we'd found a home away from home. Amy the innkeeper greeted us warmly and showed us to our room. It was spacious, with a woodburning fireplace and cozy love seat, and had every amenity we could need. The inn is large and rambling, with plenty of cozy nooks and places to sit and relax with a good book or for conversation with friends. The innkeepers thoughtfully provide a large guest refrigerator, and a good selection of hot and cold beverages are available at all times. Home-made cookies in the afternoon were too tempting to resist. The inn is within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants in downtown Lenox. We'll be back!
