The Berkshires at New Years can be cold and harsh but the welcome we received from innkeepers Marcia and Ken was warm and inviting. Our second overnight visit was as cozy and comfortable as our first back in the spring. Our spacious room had a fireplace but it was the early evening wine and cheese followed by the morning's hearty...

My new husband and I spent our "mini-moon" in the Stockbridge area and we stayed at the Federal House Inn. We were exhausted from all of the wedding activity and needed a relaxing few days! We found the perfect spot at the Federal House. The first night we were too tired to go out that they made us home-made soup...

We were so incredibly honored to have the two of you here on your mini-moon. It was honestly a privilege for us and it will be when you return on those anniversaries. I am predicting 80+ of those anniversaries as you both are geniuses at picking a spouse! Thank you for this review which meant a lot but thanks even...

Marsha and Ken are new innkeepers, but have figured it out quickly. Really nice experience, starting with a quick tour, a clean and pleasant room, access to a stocked guest fridge with water, beer, and soda (yes, beer), 5pm wine and cheese, cozy sitting/reading areas, and delicious 3-4 course breakfast. 15 minutes from Great Barrington restaurants/movies. Would certainly visit again.

I was searching on-line for a B&B in the Lenox area earlier this year, and came across the Federal House Inn. It is often difficult to choose among accommodations, and I often make my selections based on Trip Advisor reviews and gut-feeling. My instinct told me that this was the best choice of those available. I contacted the Inn to...

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What can I say? Whatever I say it won't come close to being a response good enough for that review! Guests who become family are the very best part of innkeeping. (reading a review like this also pretty high on the list!) We are so so appreciative that we have been blessed with guests like you. Thank you from...

If you are like me who does not enjoy cookie-cutter accommodation/service from chain hotels and inns and if you enjoy being pleasantly surprised by superb, personal service, you will love and look forward to repeat stays at this stately home built in 1824. Ideally situated near very beautiful Berkshire attractions like Stockbridge, the Norman Rockwell Museum and Tanglewood, it is...

Oh Sam!! You and David are simply the best! Thanks beyond measure for the review and for the Merry Christmas phone call.

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...

We spent the weekend at the Federal House Inn, and from the moment we rang the front door bell to the time we checked out, we felt right at home and very welcome. Marsha and Ken are the most gracious hosts, who treat you like you are old friends, rather than paying guests. The breakfast is outstanding, made to order....

We stayed at the Inn 11-5- 2016 for 2 nights. We apparently booked late because we had the smallest room which we still found ample in size and very comfortable bedding with the softest sheets I have slept on. The Innkeepers were gracious and friendly as well as helpful with dinners and reservations. The food was delicious. Always 2 choices...

This place has been given a real face lift and created a marvellously welcoming and comfortable place to stay in Lee/ Stockbridge. The owners have refreshed the rooms and public spaces to a high standard. The offer of an early glass of wine and canapes after a busy day was most enjoyable, as was the conversation with other guests. A...

First of all, we were treated better than royalty! No really! The hosts were so very gracious and helpful especially considering good places to explore and excellent recommendations for places to eat, shop and places to go.
