Our first time staying in the Great Barrington area, although we live not far away in Albany. As it was a few days before Xmas, and getting ready to snow, the Inn was nearly empty. We received prompt, helpful, courteous service. We found the room quaint and comfortable, with an efficient gas fireplace to keep things warm--and romantic--for our two night stay. We enjoyed the meal downstairs the first night, especially the accompanying jazz music. The waiter was helpful and efficient, and the food quite tasty. In the morning, after a hearty breakfast, David gave us wonderful advice of a seaside town to visit on the far-eastern coast of Massachusetts (we had our reasons to see the sea..). We had a glorious day, despite the snow flurries, and wind and rain patches along the way...We arrived back to the Inn fairly late and were pleasantly greeted by the Innkeepers. The restaurant was filled with guests, who had come to celebrate family transitions. The atmosphere was lovely.
A white snowy landscape greeted us the next morning, and we enjoyed homemade pancakes and fresh fruit for our breakfast. For us, it was the uninhibited conversations with our hosts, intertwined with life stories and how the area around the Inn has evolved over time, which made our stay memorable. It is certainly a lovely area to visit, filled with natural beauty and local charm. We will likely return to try one of the ski areas nearby. Overall a stay we shall remember fondly for many years to come.
