I booked this Inn for a quick visit with my wife. After skiing all day, the house itself was pretty nice. The location was a quick 15 minute drive from the mountain.
Be prepared... the host is a little nuts. It's great to see an owner take pride in their business but the explanation on bathroom operation went a little too far. All my wife and I wanted was a warm welcome and directions to the room,... not a lecture. Some of the guests were a little stiff as well. I understand that we're all different and that's half the fun of staying in a house like this. But lets get a grip folks.
The owner did recomend a great restaurant in town and she was prepared to offer info on the area. Her breakfast the next morning was very good. The fireplace room was ok, but the seating really sucked. It was the one real let-down of the house itself. What's the downside of a big comfortable couch overlooking a warm fire. It's not a museum!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The c.1830 Inn is set on an acre of lawn and gardens, shaded by ancient sugar maples, in a peaceful, rural setting in the New York Hudson River Valley. It is close to the cultural attractions of the Berkshires, such as Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony and the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA. Down hill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing, boating, hiking, biking and an aerial forest adventure park are all a short drive from the inn. It is the perfect Berkshires B&B for a romantic getaway. ... more less
