The inn is located in the heart of the historic village of Lenox, just five minutes from Tanglewood and a short stroll from the restaurants, shops, galleries, and boutiques of Main Street.  We are positioned at the base of well-known Kennedy Park, a wooded nature preserve with 180 acres of trails for hiking, biking, walking, running, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

A Place for All Seasons

Our three period-style buildings encompass twenty-eight guest rooms and suites, some possessing lofts and/or balconies, and others which can be TripAdvisor 2020 Traveler's Choice Award combined into suites. Our Berkshires lodging property is situated on four exquisite acres of beautifully groomed gardens, complete with a waterfall and pond; an oasis of privacy and serenity. Nineteen of our accommodations have wood-burning fireplaces. All of our rooms and suites include refrigerators or mini-fridges, and Keurig coffee makers, as well as separate A/C and heat venting. We are open year-round, welcoming wedding parties, family reunions, corporate guests, and extended stay vacations, as well.
