Birchwood Inn
Ranked #5 of 20 Lenox B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 March 2012

This is really the best B&B I've been to in New England. Ellen is amazing and hospitable. She even let me take home TWO LOAVES OF HOMEMADE BREAD!!!!!!

Her dog Quinn, is also a delight.

Bedroom was impeccably neat, clean.

Decorations were beautiful and I loved the detailed antiques and historic pieces throughout the house.

Felt like I was in a museum!!!!!!

It is so rewarding to an innkeeper when guests have a great time, and when they like the bread! I do hope, however, that the inn isn't a do-not-touch museum but rather historic country elegance. We look forward to your next visit.

My wife and myself stayed last July for several days enjoying the beautiful nature around, several music and theater performances at Tanglewood and a splendid place to stay. comfortable, cosy, beautiful garden to sit outside, and very friendly and personal service in all respects. we will certainly come back as soon as we have the possibility. Thank you!

Ellen,

I first wanted to say how happy I was to finally meet you personally, since our first email you warmth and kindness came across the web instantly. Now I see why so many of your clients return every year, it is like going home minus the stress.

Secondly, I haven't stayed in many B&B before but after this weekend I feel like I discovered a new world. The Birchwood Inn is the true meaning of cozy and beautiful. My room was so perfectly decorated that I thought at one point that it couldn't get better than that, then I peaked into several other rooms and all of them were equally as gorgeous but with a different story.

The service was flawless and the food was decadent (wouldn't expect less from the future Martha Stewart).

I hope you have a fantastic week and look forward to our next visit.

I am sure we enjoyed meeting you as much if not more than you enjoyed your weekend. Having such a positive impression of b&bs as a result of your stay that you'll agree that bed and breakfasts are the better way to stay!

One of the most heartwarming and comfortable stays we ever had. Ellen and David were incredibly pleasant, accommodating, and caring. The weekend both at the inn and in experiencing the town was magical from the countryside to the locals, and of course our hostess and host are alone worth the drive to Lenox. Thank you so much for making it memorable. Absolutely and highly recommended.

Just got back from a two-night stay at this charming bed and breakfast in Lenox, MA with another couple and had a wonderful time. Beautiful rooms, great breakfasts and tea time snacks, friendly and welcoming hosts (and doggies) combined to provide us with a relaxed and fun time. Very highly recommended.
