“Of all the inns I've visited, Rookwood, by far, was the most comfortable, with personable, friendly and obliging innkeepers, excellent breakfasts and cozy atmosphere.”
“We found the Rookwood to be everything advertised and more. Attention to decor, details, and hospitality were first class. Even the weather cooperated in March and we were able to sit out on the front porch and enjoy our wine each afternoon. The Rookwood is a huge house yet felt cozy and comfortable. The large living room is decorated with several seating areas so many people can enjoy it.
We were there on a weekend when it wasn't busy so Amy, the proprietor, graciously took the time to show us the other rooms. One is better than the other and it would be difficult to say which is the most beautiful. We were in the Williams Suite on the first floor and happily it looks exactly as pictured on the website and was very comfortable.. However, because of my rememberance of Rapunzel, the next time we stay I will definitely want to stay in Revels Retreat which has the circular sitting room. So romantic.
Service was also exceptional. There is a guest refrigerator stocked with complimentary drinks and a table set up with glasses and wine openers. And the location is perfect. You can park your car and walk into the charming little town of Lenox. Thank you, Amy, for a wonderful getaway.”

“We stayed at The Rookwood Inn to celebrate New Year's Eve, 2009. The Rookwood has special meaning to us, because it's the first hotel my wife and I stayed in when we met 12 years ago. One thing has remained constant at The Rookwood throughout that time - Innkeeper Amy Lindner-Lesser. She continues to make her guests feel like her home is their home, and for those of us who return regularly, she welcomes us like family.
Each of the rooms is decorated with lovely period furnishings, and every one is different - so there's something for every taste - and budget. Our room had a fireplace that we watched from our cozy four-poster bed with a hand-made quilt comforter.
And speaking of taste - Amy and her staff cook breakfasts that are always different, fresh, and delicious. They outdid themselves on New Year's Day, producing a sumptuous buffet fit for a 4-star restaurant brunch - outstanding!
If you're looking for a weekend getaway, or a place to stay while enjoying Tanglewood or the other many attractions of the Berkshires (including a great convenient Prime Outlets location just minutes from the Rookwood and just off the Mass Pike) the Rookwood is for you. Lenox is a delightful village with lots of nice restaurants, shops, and a great bookstore, and the Rookwood is one block from the center of town - makes for fun walks (or runs, if you prefer) Give the Rookwood a try - you won't be sorry - and we're sure it won't be your last time there.”
