The Birchwood Inn is very old, very beautiful, and very comfortable to be in. Fully in Lenox's historic district, it's across the road from a stunning, white-steepled church with its venerable, well-manicured cemetery.
The front porch of the inn is peaceful, the back garden with its wrought-iron rocking chairs perhaps even more so, and the room we had was clean and pleasant. The Birchwood Inn's hosts are delightful -- friendly, accommodating, offering fresh-baked goodies, tea, and whatever else we needed. And such breakfasts! We have stayed at some really great inns, but these morning feasts at the Birchwood blew us away.
After returning from Lenox's Audubon Center, or from Edith Wharton's The Mount, or the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, or from any number of wonderful places in the area, it's great to settle back in Birchwood's large, beautifully proportioned sitting room (and mind you, it's not the only pretty place to perch) and take it easy.
