After 15 years of B&B stays and varying levels of disappointment, I experienced three perfect days/nights at Garden Gables Inn. We were welcomed by innkeepers John and Peggy. Married 40 years, they relate as if on their first date and work flawlessly together. The aroma of a wood fire and fresh chocolate chip cookies set the atmosphere. John graciously responded to each of our needs as did Peggy’s wit, genuineness and knowledge of restaurants and events. We were in caring, capable hands. A walk able distance from Lenox, the Inn’s landscaping is meticulous, with ample parking. Interior décor is soothing and consistent with the inn’s history. Couches facilitate meeting guests, talking with friends or reading silently. Rooms are meticulously clean, with pillow-top beds, and stunningly beautiful bedrooms. Afternoon Sherry around the fire brings together the guests. Bold, hot coffees greet you early each morning to start the best gourmet breakfast you will find at a B&B. Their extensive menu includes individualized omelets, French toast, buttermilk pancakes, fruit and maple syrup from the owners’ Hilltop Orchard, ham, sausage, laughter and copies of national and area newspapers. On our friend’s birthday, Peggy and John surprised us with a bottle of Champagne. Access to snow shoeing, cross country skiing and wine tasting at the Inn’s orchard and winery are included! You need not look further; Garden Gables Inn is the perfect B&B.
