My husband and I stayed at the Village Inn on Feb 9, 2008. We've been to Lenox, MA before but never at this establishment.
Their website (www.villageinn-lenox.com) noted a "value weekend package" that we decided to take advantage of. For $149 you get a 1 night stay in their best available room. This included a $50 coupon toward dinner in their restaurant: Rumplestiltzkins. It also included a full breakfast the next morning. They had other "add ons" such as candy and flowers for an additional price. For $20 extra dollars we opted for a room with a fireplace.
Check-in is at 2:00 but it had started snowing pretty hard just after we arrived in Lenox so we went to the inn and asked if we could check in a little early. The innkeeper was very accommodating and gave us our key immediately. He also told us of a short-cut to get our bags from the car with the least amount of time outside in the snow.
The inn itself is extremely old but very well maintained. Our room (#20) was very cozy and romantic. The room included (besides a working fireplace), a king-sized bed, a comfortable sofa, a clock/radio/cd player, and an armoire held the t.v. and vcr. The bathroom was of good size and very clean. The tub had whirlpool jets but was only large enough for one person. The shower was great---lots of pressure and hot water.
The inn also maintains a restaurant called Rumplestiltzkin's. We had dinner on the sun porch. Very romantic. We sat at a table for two by the window where we watched the snow come down. The food was wonderful. I had the spring salad and my husband had the butternut squash soup for starters. Both were very good. Our main course was king crab legs. These came cut in half so there was no messy cracking of the crab legs. Dessert for me was a raspberry/pomegranite mousse and for my husband was pecan pie---served warm. The coffee (which is very important to us) was excellent. The total for the dinner came to $84 but we had the $50 coupon so only paid $34 plus tax & tip.
Breakfast was very tasty. We were given a menu of selections and since we had the "package" we were told to disregard the prices and could mix and match whatever we wanted. I had the waffles and some fruit salad. My husband had corn beef hash but didn't want the poached egg that came with it. He asked for an egg cooked differently and that was no problem. Once again the coffee was brewed to perfection.
There is a tavern on-site as well called Rumpy's. We opted to stay in our room after dinner so never got the chance to check out this part of the inn.
The inn has a tv room on the first floor where their video library is located. They have an extensive selection of videos---literally there is something for everyone.....horror, romance, comedy, drama, etc. You're on your honor to rewind and return the videos to the tv room when you're finished with them. There are also puzzles and games and a few books in this room, too.
We had such a wonderful time at this inn and have decided to cancel a trip to the Poconos in March and come here instead. Lenox and the surrounding area has so much to offer and we're looking forward to coming back again and again.
The only thing that we didn't like was that the tv had very few stations to choose from. But, since we didn't go there for the t.v. channels, we didn't mind. Also, a small refrigerator in the room would have been nice. We had some refreshments that we put on the window sill to keep cold until we could drink/eat them.
