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.
