“Conveniently located, in a beautiful setting, with a superior staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2010

Located in Lenox, Massachusetts, The Kemble inn, set on several acres of beautiful landscaping, a mere stroll from the town center, and a short drive to many of the area's cultural venues, has a very warm and hospitable staff, large comfortable rooms, an expansive back porch on which you can enjoy your daily breakfast. The new owner goes out of his way to make your stay a happy one. Pitchers of cold drinks, cookies or cake and fruit are on a table in the entrance hall to welcome you day and evening. Breakfast is a self serve buffet but there is always someone who will come to refill your plate or coffee cup should you need it. And the idyllic Berkshire Mountain setting from the back of the inn, viewed from the porch or a lounge chair on the lawn, is enough to make you want to stay there and relax all day.

We're happy to post a review of the Kemble Inn, where we enjoyed a long weekend within walking distance of Tanglewood and Shakespeare & Co. The inn is grand, with high ceilings, lots of light, and an open, airy feel. Our room was comfortable, with a luxurious featherbed and a fireplace I'd love to come back and use in winter. We enjoyed buffet breakfast (but with plenty of personal attention) on the porch overlooking the lawn, with a wonderful view.

The location couldn't be better: an easy stroll into town, to our concert at Tanglewood, and to a play opening at Shakespeare & Co.

Our friendly hosts told us of plans for the future, including nights of piano music by the fire in the pleasant downstairs common room. We look forward to our return!

My friend and I stayed at the Kemble Inn for four nights during which time we were treated like family. Scott and his mother Sylvia, Evan, Joe, and Lianne went out of their way to make sure that our stay was outstanding. Although there is still some work to be done, the new owners have made an excellent start. Aside from the amenities at the Inn itself, the location is hard to beat. It is a five minute walk to downtown Lenox, about a mile and a half from Tanglewood, and in close proximity to many of the areas attractions. Check their web site for the lastest news and specials. It is well worth a visit to this Inn.

The new owners of the Kemble Inn are working VERY hard to make this B & B one of the best ----and it shows.
They are gracious and generous: fresh cookies and juice and tea (AND M & Ms) in the reception area; always available guidance for activities and directions; perfect decor; elegant breakfast. ENJOY!

We were surprised to find that we had arrived at the Kemble Inn on the new owner's first weekend. Scott and his mom, Sylvia, could not have been nicer or more welcoming. The Inn was in a mild state of renovation as the new owner was anxious to make some upgrades to this lovely old building. There was obviously work going on around the property, but surprisingly, there was no inconvenience to the guests. Our room (206) was a bit on the small side and somewhat outdated, but it was very clean and comfortable. Other similarly priced rooms were larger, so I would suggest calling ahead to determine which room(s) are larger and updated as there were a few that were getting facelifts as well.

The location is fantastic and the property is beautiful with a large porch in the rear and a beautiful backyard with new teak lawn furniture where you can relax in the evening or enjoy your breakfast. Since the breakfast is served buffet style, however, you will have to carry your food down the long staircase if you choose to eat in the yard as opposed to the dining room or back porch.

I think that the Kemble Inn will be a different place in a year from now as the new owner settles in and puts his stamp on it. I definitely look forward to going back.
