I just returned from a wonderful trip to the Berkshires which was literally saved by Marcia & Ken at the Federal House Inn! I had booked another B&B but was very disappointed when I checked in there. It was dark and musty and very depressing. I knew after the first night I would not be there a second. After calling...

We were the clear winners with this visit. I honestly can't wait until you return. Your presence in the inn was an absolute gift to me. Told my daughter all about how wonderful everything turned out and how grateful I was that you found us.

Reviewed 5 December 2016 via mobile

If I could give this place 10 stars I would. From the moment we stepped into the inn we were warmly greeted and felt right at home. Our room had a private entrance which was awesome. An electric fireplace was so cozy and romantic. ❤️In the evening our hosts spread out assorted cheese and crackers, red and white wine or...

And Bruce and Bonnie from the moment your car pulled away we missed you! I missed seeing Bonnie come out for her morning cup of coffee with her giant smile and positive attitude. Gotta say we missed all the compliments you lavished on us. Mostly we just plain old missed you. Now this review! We are the ones who thank...

Marcia and Ken are amazingly gracious hosts and did everything to make our anniversary stay perfect. Our room was spotless, inviting and had a private entrance so that was a really nice plus. The breakfast was wonderful with scones, berries and cream and a choice of pancakes, frittata or eggs. We had not stayed at the Federal House Inn previously....

I took my mom to this B&B for her birthday. As a previous innkeeper, she can be pretty critical of places we stay but we were both blown away by all the special touches at the Federal Inn. Gorgeous & clean - great combo of farmhouse antiques & modern furniture. Spotless & comfortable rooms! Delicious food - from fresh banana...

Thank you beyond words for writing this review! Having you two here was so much fun. I wish I had been able to talk for hours about your experiences and memories.

I LOVE staying here. Marcia and Ken are the most welcoming easy/going innkeepers without missing a beat of the hospitality and elegance you hope for when staying st an inn. The breakfasts are so exciting (lighter than air scones, strawberry soup to goat cheese frittatas) The rooms are beautifully decorated and cozy with quality furnishings, fireplaces and tvs. Cocktail hour...

Every time you stay here I am so so happy anticipating your arrival. I wake up knowing I have a dear friend arriving. That's the best part of innkeeping- meeting guests who become friends. Knowing you are coming makes that day feel like Christmas morning. We both love you and Aurora!

Ken and Marcia Andersen, first class inn keepers of Federal House Inn, welcomed us graciously into their beautiful home. Happy Anniversary! In just one year as owners, the class and style you have brought to this inn is incredible. The location of Federal House Inn in the Berkshires is a perfect location. We loved that we could make day trips...

From the personal response that accompanied our reservation confirmation to the warm welcome we received upon our arrival, we knew we were in for a special treat. Marcia and Ken are gracious hosts and did everything to make our stay perfect. The inviting accommodations and the cozy room were only surpassed by Marcia's gourmet breakfasts and Ken's amazing bacon recipe....

At he last minute we decided to get away to the Berkshires for one night. Checked out the reviews for the Federal House Inn, and was able to get the room I wanted. The great reviews were so accurate. We've had really good and really bad experiences at B&B's and this one was fabulous. From the moment we walked in,...

Thank you Robin, I wanted to tell you that the Great Barrington antique shops didn't open until 1pm because walking out to the living room and seeing you sitting in that chair just made me so happy. But since I try never to lie to guests I refrained. I just told myself to hope you would be back soon and...
