Birchwood Inn
Ranked #6 of 20 Lenox B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 May 2012

For the third time, I had the pleasure of staying at The Inn at Birchwood. I just can't begin to tell you what a pleasure it is.
Strawberry Rhubarb pie? Yum. Welcoming rooms? Yes indeed. A great night's sleep? You know it.
Ellen is such a wonderful innkeeper and her staff take excellent care of the Inn.
I marveled at the cleanliness of the shower and assumed that it was brand new. I learned that it is thirteen years old! Not one water spot. Absolutely immaculate.
Just wish I didn't live so far away.

Gorgeous country inn, beautifully situated next to a classic white New England church. The breakfasts and the homebaking are absolutely delicious, the inn keepers are charming and welcoming, and the library is one of the nicest rooms I can imagine to while away a peaceful hour in. It is within easy walking distance of Lenox village where there are lots of nice restaurants.
Highly recommended. If you are visiting the Berkshires, this is the place to stay.

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!
