LOVE THIS INN!!! My husband and I stayed at the Chambery, in the fall of 2005 for our honeymoon and again in 2006 for our 1st anniversary. For our honeymoon, we stayed in an upstairs suite named Petite Palais. It was wonderful. Since it was fall (which is the best time to visit the Berkshires), we used the gas fireplace every night. Everything was perfect. Have to say, we loved the fact that the staff left us alone. Only time we heard them was when they knocked on the door in the morning to chime out "Breakfast" and then would leave our basket of coffee, newspapers and whatever breakfast goodies we had picked the night before. Muffins, fruit and yogurt, etc. In 2006, we stood in the La Savoie Deluxe.............."the best". Each of the suites are spacious with lots of amenities. I cannot tell you how much we enjoy this school house inn. Our room is already booked for our 2nd anniversary this year !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely lovely. Only had the time to stay one night. Very friendly and helpful. Made the arrangements over the phone (got the information from the Fodor's travel guide for the area). The breakfast basket delivered to the room was an excellent touch. Would definitely go back for another escape!

If you like small inns & B & Bs, you might want to add the Chambery to your list. It's an old parochial school house that was moved and converted into an inn. The blackboards are still in the rooms and there are photos and small desks set about to personalize the inn. We stayed in a lovely room -- very large -- on the top floor with three large windows that ran across the front of the building. Noise was not a problem. Our room had a gas fireplace which we actually used on a chilly night in June, a sitting area, desk, assorted tables, TV and chairs. The decor was typical New England country cutesy. Our bath was large with a single person jacuzzi, which was also nice. Bed was comfy, linens were just fine. Our only issue was with the breakfast which was delivered to us in a pretty little basket each morning. It was a little small, which was really fine since we don't usually eat that much, but one of the mornings we were there, they ran out of something we had requested on the menu-request form, and they did not substitute another item. Probably just a mistake, but it left us sharing a smallish breakfast. The only other thing was that we really never saw any of the staff, which was a little weird. We picked our key up in an envelope on the desk when we got there and then left the key on the same desk when we left. That said, I still would not hesitate to stay at the Chambery again.

We stayed in this wonderful antique schoolhouse for a get away weekend in the Berkshires. Lovely LARGE room, gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub and terry robes for your convenience. The building was originally a perocial school moved to its current location and converted to this lovely inn, some original touches such as the girls and boys staircases remain.
Breakfast, limited choices, delivered to your room in a basket at your specified time. We enjoyed fruit, yogurt, cereal and wonderful warmed scones. There is even a tablecloth included in your basket! Who could ask for more?
Can't wait to go back again.

I wanted to take my boyfriend for his birthday on an overnight stay on our way to bash Bish Falls. Since there is no Marriott between Hartford CT and the falls, I began searching for an afordable, sweet, and fun place to stay. I thought a bed and breakfast might be nice since niether of us had ever done that. The Chambery Inn was a great choice from begining to end. I booked my appointment with Tracy on the phone, she was very pleasant and knowledgeable. When we arrived we passed a strip of "cheesy motels" and PRAYED it wasnt there! (It wasn't!) We saw the Inn and parked in a very safe lot. When we checked in Tracy was there to welcome us! She even upgraded us to a suite! We were supposed to stay in the standard king "la Chambrette" room, and were upgraded to the "schoolhouse suite". Although it was beautiful, it was a little rickety and not as cozy as we expected. I asked to see the room I had booked, and was happier with it. It was smaller, more quiet and right near the rear entry of the inn. It felt very private! The fireplace was right near the bed,SO COZY! The jet tub was also bigger than we expected. Fits 2 people no problem! Breakfast was delivered in a wicker basket (nice touch) and was DELISH! We also ate ate the Sullivan Station which is about 30 feet from the inn, DELISH!!! Salmon and chicken parmisian to be exact! (At check in the give you a binder FULL of near by resturant menus!)Overall it was a wonderfull mini getaway followed by a breathtaking visit to Bash Bish falls. GO TO THIS INN!

Pros:
* Breakfast is delivered right to your door: cereal, juice, fresh-baked pastries, coffee and tea. They even provide a tablecloth and a copy of the morning's paper.
* The bed is wonderful: silk pillowcases, soft linens, and a pillowtop mattress
* Fireplace is romatic and the jacuzzi is great for relaxing!
* Recliners allowed us to watch tv while enjoying the fire
* Lights are on dimmers
* Provided filtered water, coffee pot, empty fridge, ice bucket, champagne and wine glasses, even a corkscrew
* Close to the outlets, Stockbridge, and some great restaurants
* On Main St, but set back off the road so that there is no real street noise

Cons:
* Walls are thin and sound echoes - if people talk in the hallway, you will know it (we learned this lesson at midnight and 5 a.m. on the same day). In their defense, the front desk quickly took care of the problems
* Basement room offered no view - but this can be seen as a pro if you don't want to be awoken by the morning light!
* Parking lot is tiny and there are less spaces than there are rooms
* No makeup-mirror and lighting in the bathroom is not great

Surrounding area:
* Within walking distance: restaurants (Salmon Run has fresh fish & great desserts); liquor store; grocery store; post office
* 1.5 mi: Prime Outlets Lee
* 5-15 mi: Stockbridge (Red Lion Inn; Michael's Restaurant); Pittsfield (Aster's Restaurant); Norman Rockwell Museum; Edith Wharton; The Clark

We went during the offseason, so there was not as much available in the way of entertainment, events, but it was still a VERY relaxing vacation.

Stayed there with my wife for a couple of nights on the lower floor king room.

Pros:
-Big bed
-Gas fireplace in the room
-Breakfast basket brought to room in mornings
-TV in room
-Private clean bathroom w/ jacuzzi tub

Cons:
-In winter, parking was a little cramped, they have a very small lot
-Breakfast was ok, but not really a FULL breakfast, basically just cereal/yogurt/bagels, but it's presented nicely, in a basket with the newspaper, each morning so it's worth it....still filled us up though, just nothing special
-On lower floor, you hear squeaks from room above you, which I guess is natural for most rooms in most places, but still a little annoying if you are a light sleeper

Recommended: Yes...the pro's outweighed the con's, overall, we enjoyed our stay.
