“Perfect Tanglewood B&B!!”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

All I have to say is the Eastgate Inn was an unexpected gem. My wife and I were really just looking for a B&B close to Tanglewood. We try and visit Tanglewood every summer and were just hoping for a clean and comfortable place, but what we found will hopefully be our go to Berkshire location for years to come. Delija is a fantastic and gracious host, and its only a matter of time before the word is out on the Eastgate Inn. My wife and I were actually laughing because we both had the same thought about writing this review. We feel strongly that Delija deserves a great write-up, but both feared that doing so might result in difficulty getting a room here in the future. Whatever, Delijah deserves it. Besides, not only does she get a great rating from us on the B&B alone, but I dont think there is a better location if you are visiting Tanglewood. You are walking distance to the main entrance. We had to drive, since we were traveling with my parents and my father requires a wheelchair/walker, but you can save yourself the headache of dealing with the pre/post-performance traffic and just walk. It's that close.

As for the rooms. We initially stayed in the 1st floor King bed the first night which was clean, comfortable and spacious. We then moved up to the second floor queen, since my parents needed a first floor room. The queen room was equally clean, though notably smaller than the king room. Delijah serves a large continental breakfast each morning between 8-10:30. Breakfast included fresh fruit, bagels/english muffins, yogurt and fresh baked goods. There is always coffee available (Keurig type with a nice selection of options), and several tea options as well. We made use of the back deck throughout the weekend. There is comfortable seating that can accommodate at least 20 people.

Please note, this is apparently only Delija's second season managing the Eastgate Inn. (any reviews before 2011 are from the prior owner) I think the only reason she is not ranked higher on trip advisor is due to the lack of reviews. So It's only a matter of time before the word is out on the Eastgate Inn!!! I just hope that next season we can get a room.

Room Tip: The location and sevice rating does not do this place justice. Excellent is an understatement.

We have been going to the East Gate Inn for many years, but we have never been as spoiled as we were on our recent visit. The new innkeeper, Dalija Merritt is just wonderful and she has quite a green thumb! The deck is adorned with a multitude flowers overlooking a lovely garden. We ate our ample breakfast including just baked muffins, cinnamon buns and banana bread out on the deck. Dalija is a source of all sorts of resources including local swimming and hiking spots. and we went to a lovely outdoor dinner conert at the Mount (Edith Wharton's place) on her recommendation. She also provided us with a cart, table and an umbrella so we could easily take our chairs and picnic basket with us as we walked to Tanglewood- a very short 10 minute walk from the inn. It's amazing to be able to walk to and from the concerts and not have to bother with the traffic and parking hassles. We just love this place and we'll be back again next summer!

We just came back from our first visit to Eastgate Inn and also, our first James Taylor concert at Tanglewood. It took us just 10 minutes to walk to the concert from Eastgate Inn. This property is beautifully landscaped and furnished. The huge back deck is filled with wicker furniture with comfy cushions and pillows. The deck overlooks the rest of the yard and the wooded area beyond that. It was just so relaxing. There are four rooms - 1 king, 2 queens and a (2) twin and they all have their own bathroom and TV and internet. The new owner Dalija was as gracious and welcoming as they come. Breakfast was fabulous with fresh fruits, hot and cold cereals, home made breads, bagels, jams, crousants, juice and a Keurig machine that was available all day long. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in the area.

We just came back from our first visit to the Eastgate Inn. It will certainly NOT be our last! This place is a hidden gem. It was an easy stroll to Tanglewood and NO traffic snarl for us! The inn is clean and comfy, and the innkeeper, Joan, is wonderful. We'll be back!

Great small B&B located 1/4 mile from Tanglewood. Perfect walking distance.

We stayed in late August for the James Taylor concert. Joan is very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good, Joan had lots of tips on things to do during the day in the area. Walked to the concert, only 1/4 mile, and it was nice walking back and not fighting the legendary traffic. Rooms very nice and comfortable.

Overall we had a a great trip, and are looking forward to going back for our next trip
