My husband and I attended the Brimfield show last week. This was our first experience there and I feel very fortunate that we chose to stay at the Yankee Cricket.
The inn is just a short drive from the show and there are back roads you can take to avoid the traffic if it is problematic. Due to the heat/rain this was not an issue during our visit, but I understand the May show was really crowded and the backup from the Mass turnpike to Rte 20 in town extended for miles.
Yankee Cricket is nestled in a very quiet residential area. The inn itself was built about 10 years ago and everything is immaculately kept. Breakfasts were very good, with fruit, juice, yogurt, muffins and a variety of cooked dishes provided.
Bill and Shirley are terrific hosts and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed for our visit. Bill gave us great restaurant recommendations and told us where to park at Brimfield so we did not have to walk too far.
There is a trail near the Inn so my husband was able to get in a couple of runs while I wandered the booths in the show.
I highly recommend the Yankee Cricket.
