If you love touring antique homes and been wishing you could stay in one, this is the place for you! Yes, the incredible wide floorboards may slope a bit in the rooms, but that's part of the charm. The bathrooms are up to date and the bed was super comfy. JoAnne is an incredible host. She had fresh home-baked cookies... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 July 2016

From a chance visit six years ago, we have been fortunate to return yearly, often with family and friends, to this absolute gem of a home away from home. This beautiful and welcoming inn has been lovingly maintained with an artist/historian's eye and a fine craftsman's precise touch. It enjoys an ideal location on a high knoll amidst lovely gardens...

I will preface my review by saying the owners have the property up for sale and that may be why they seem not to care. We arrived at the B&B in the midst of a heat spell. The owners had not put the room a/c on to make the welcome comfortable but had the windows open. They said we could... More

We were sorry to see that these guests were so disappointed in their stay at our Inn. Yes, it was very hot, and I did assist with the windows. Many of our guests prefer not to use air conditioning, so we do not automatically turn it on. The gentleman was unhappy from the moment he saw the staircase as they... More

The innkeeper Joanna is warm and accommodating. One day for breakfast, the hot dish was something I did not like--I was sweetly asked what I would prefer. The house is charming and very clean. The only negative is the fact that it is "off the beaten path" and hard to find at night. The positives outweigh this inconvenience.

Lovely house. Loving dog😊😊. This place is cozy and the hosts are lovely. A must visit in fall season and summers. They have a large lawn and the surrounding area is scenic. Jonathan made us lovely cakes that I never had before. Not to be missed.

The Jonathan Foote 1778 House is situated in the town of Lee, which lies in a beautiful valley in the wooded foothills of SW Mass. Known also for its famous resident Norman Rockwell who painted the workers of the now redundant old Mill at Joes Diner still there in Lee High Street. The Inn is beautifully decorated in Colonial style... More

We have stayed at the Jonathan Foote House a number of times now in all seasons. Always friendly, quiet, tucked onto a pretty piece of land and comes accompanied by a sweetheart of an older dog. The breakfast is always wonderful and there are snacks and, our favorite, blackberry brandy, for the nighttime. We recommend this b&b 100%

We found the Jonathan Foote B&B about five years ago and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else for our at least annual trip to the Berkshires. Each time we come we stay longer.

After reading the reviews, I expected more than I found at Jonathan Foote 1778 House. The inn is conveniently located in Lee and the setting is lovely with big, old trees and pretty perennial gardens. Unfortunately, when I stepped inside, I was surprised to find that the inn's decor was quite drab, especially the living and dining rooms. Also, the... More

Before booking my stay at the Jonathan Foote 1778 House, I read several dozen reviews on this site.
