“AUTUMN PEACE & GOLDEN BEAUTY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2009

I'm finally getting around to writing about our yearly pilgrimage to the Staveleigh House in the Berkshires (Sheffield, MA). This year, my fiancée and I went a little earlier than we usually do. Normally, we go for a weekend off-season in November but this year we went right smack in the middle of fall foliage peaking. I was worried the place would be noisy but it was anything but! There was even a family with kids and still it was quiet and relaxing. This time we spent a little time hanging out with the animals on the property---the rescue dogs and horses. And of course, we had the best time talking to Ali and Harry, the owners--always warm and good-natured, always respectful and kind. I just love them and wish they lived around the block! Anyway, this time we took a magical hike in a nearby nature reserve, Bartholomew's Cobble (not sure I spelled it right--sorry!). I thought I had been abducted by fairies! The place was dripping with moss and the leaves were fiery red and orange. I got so many ideas for my next book.

We have to be at a wedding in Lenox this coming May but do you think we will stay IN Lenox? Hell no! We're going back to our favorite place of all, Staveleigh House in Sheffield: where the waffles are tasty, the conversation witty and fun, and the rooms are the coziest in New England.

We arrived from Boston to start our two week trip in this wonderfull house with the nicest innkeeper we've ever met. Our two years old son is still talking about Ali (it's nearly December now) and her beautifull things. We've had a great breakfast every morning and a lovely room. The neighbourhood is quiet and a good base to explore the Berkshires! Just perfect!

My sister and I stayed 4 nights recently and loved the Staveleigh House. Ali treats her guests like family. She was so accomodating and pleasant to be around. When my sister didn't feel well one morning, Ali was very concerned and was willing to make her anything she wanted for breakfast. All of our breakfasts were delicious and fresh. Our room was very large and the private bathroom had plenty of room for all of our "stuff". The Staveleigh House is full of charm and we would definitely return.

After a 'whistle stop' tour of New England and Canada we were delighted to extend our stay at Staveleigh House to three nights. Ali was very friendly - there when you needed anything but not obtrusive in any way. The sitting room was perfect for relaxing after a day touring the area. Her home was your home for the duration of your stay.

Staveleigh is the perfect spot for relaxing. Ali is a terrific hostess and goes out of her way to make you feel at home. She is also a sensational cook. We have stayed at many inns over the years and her breakfasts were our favorite. The house is charming and impeccably clean. If you love animals, you'll enjoy visiting the barn and meeting the hens, sheep, ponies and dogs. Sheffield is a good base from which to experience all that the Berkshires and Columbia County have to offer. We look forward to returning.

Very welcoming and comfortable B&B. Ali is a terrific hostess who is charming and sociable with just the right balance between enaging and giving space. She has a delightful sense of humor and is accomodating of guest preferences. The house was impeccable without being austere or ostentatious and the breafast was straightforward but absolutely delicious-- from souffles to omelettes, fruit and baked goods. Highly recommend.

After reading about this wonderful property on TripAdvisor, my girlfriend and i looked forward to our stay during the fourth of July weekend, and we must say that we weren't disappointed! The service was above and beyond what we expected. The property's owner Ali, was extremely cordial and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The room, was extremely comfortable, clean and had all of the basic amenities that we needed for our stay. Breakfast was great and more than we could handle in one sitting. Only a two-hour drive from New York City, it was easy to find, and access to other towns is only a short drive away from its location in Sheffield, MA.

Would we come back? Absolutely! Highly recommended? Certainly! Let's just hope that it gets really popular, but not so that we won't get a room on our next trip!!!
