My husband and I participated as singers in the Berkshire Choral Festival this summer, and had the privilege of staying in the lovely Staveleigh House nearby. In addition to a great experience at the Festival, our whole week wouldn't have been the same without our cozy "home away from home." Staveleigh House is located on a quiet section of Rt 7, famous for its many antique shops. As West Coast people visiting the Berkshires for the first time, we couldn't have been happier with our choice of the Staveleigh House B&B.
Ali & Harry are gracious innkeepers, ready to help with any special requests. Ali's breakfasts are incredible --- a very special and delicious gourmet feast each morning, served in the beautiful dining room. She was so accomodating to our unique needs to have breakfast earlier in order to make it to our rehearsals on time, and helped us start the day with a smile. My husband wanted to find a good place to run in the mornings, and Harry & Ali helped him figure out a good loop nearby that became his daily run. We also had never been to Tanglewood, so Ali loaned us lawn chairs, a blanket, and an insulated picnic basket for all our picnic needs at the concert. She definitely went above and beyond!
We loved the historic inn with its authentic rooms and beautiful gardens. I wish we could grow flowers like she does! Our room was air-conditioned and so pretty, and after long hours of rehearsing, such a welcoming place to come home to. We stayed for a whole week, and had a hard time saying good-bye.
The Staveleigh House is also a great home base to enjoy the Berkshires. We drove down route 7 into Connecticut to visit a winery, and drove the other way on route 7 to explore Great Barrington, Stockbridge, and Lenox. We were very happy with the location and how easy it was to explore other towns in the Berkshires.
We highly recommend Staveleigh House and hope to return someday. Ali and Harry are special people, and you will feel welcome from the moment they greet you!
