Staying at Birchwood Inn is like returning to the home of a favorite aunt. Ellen, the sweetly sophisticated innkeeper, makes her guests feel welcome in premises that glow with good taste. We were there during Tanglewood Season, refugees from a Maryland heat wave, and delighted with the cool weather and comfortably furnished front porch where tea and homemade treats were available each afternoon. Ellen is a gourmet cook, creating spectacular breakfasts served by her assistants in the inn's elegant dining room.
Birchwood Inn is pet-friendly, and our chocolate lab Conrad spent one night in the Post Room, located in an auxiliary property next to the main house. A private entrance and a front porch was an ideal situation, although he spent two nights at nearby Camp Wagalot so we could enjoy concerts and sample the fare of restaurants within walking distance. Zinc was a favorite, as was Alta and the Church Street Cafe.
Birchwood Inn, an historic house on a quiet street in Lenox, is a special destination year-round. The gardens and grounds are well kept and the public rooms inviting. Ellen is a charming and thoughtful host - as well as a great cook. Her labrador Quinn and service dog Charlie are a bonus -- as is the inn's pet-friendly policy . We give it five thumbs-up!
