I stayed here 20 years ago and remembered having a wonderful experience then. Lisa, Richard and Jane, still make the expereinece a true delight, as they did in the past. They serve a sumptuous breakfast, with all sorts of home made goodies and even brandy is available for a night cap in the parlor. There are many interesting sitting rooms, filled with shelves of books and antiques galore. The view from the outdoor patio is filled with trees and flowers, to make dining outside a wonderful experience.
I wish the bed could have been a little more comfortable to sleep, as I prefer a firmer mattress. I would have liked to open the windows at night and not use the A/C, as it was cool enough to have a fresh air breeze. There could have been a better wireless connection, except for one area in the dining room.
Their kind hopsitality makes the stay a pleasure, as well as the innkeepers desire to make your visit as comfortable as possible. They share stories, history of the area and places to visit. Richard is also an experienced traveler and author. He has his books displayed in the entry, which are also available to purchase. I would recommend the inn, as the charm, hospitality and value, make up for the issues I had, that can be amended.. A true delight!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Whistler. Close to Tanglewood and all major Berkshire cultural venues, Whistler's Inn captures the warmth and elegance of a bygone era. On six acres of gardens and woodlands and two blocks from the center of Lenox, this quiet antique and art-filled retreat has an extensive library and French music room with a Steinway grand piano. A buffet breakfast is served with recipes inspired by the cook's world travels (Spain, France, Israel, South America, Japan and Morocco). ... more less
