Description

Circa 1767. Experience comfortable country elegance at this Colonial Revival mansion that has welcomed friends since 1767. The inn's antiques, collectibles, quilts, canopy beds and nine fireplaces create an idyllic getaway. The inn is renowned for sumptuous breakfasts and afternoon tea and was voted "Best Breakfast in New England." Enjoy Berkshire breezes and fireflies on the porch in summer, spring blossoms in stone-fenced gardens, vibrant fall foliage, and the welcome warmth of the firesides in winter. The oldest home in Lenox, it is a short walk from its tranquil hilltop setting to the village's restaurants, galleries and shops.Publicity and Awards: Country Inns, Country Living, New York Magazine, Montreal Gazette, Gourmet Magazine, The Discerning Traveler.Location: Mountains and Village.
