We stayed at the Staveleigh House during an extended weekend at the Berkshires. One thing that we were a little concerned about distance from the main attractions of the Berkshires (i.e. Tanglewood, the Mount, Jacob's Pillow, etc.) When we were deciding where to stay, it was between the Staveleigh House and another B&B in the heart of town. The thing that made us decide to drive around a little more rather than staying in the thick of things was the fact that a recurring comment about the other B&B was the noise level at night. For us, a good night's rest was more important. In reality, the drive to most of the attractions were well within a 30 minute drive.
When we arrived at the Staveleigh House, we were greated by Ali and her four legged friends. It was a lot of fun staying at a property that had many friendly dogs, sheep, goats, and ponies. Once we got settled, Ali treated us to mint iced tea (the mint was picked from her garden) and gingerbread.
The breakfasts were amazing. Every breakfast started with either a fruit plate or fruit cup. The main fares included frittata, stuffed blueberry pancakes, souffle all with sides of potatoes or bacon. All the herbs came straight from the garden. The eggs came straight from Ali's chickens. How many B&B's do you know where you are fed eggs direct from the chickens on the property?
The room that we got was one of the smaller rooms with an en-suite bathroom. The room was small, but the size really didn't matter since we did not spend much time in the room. The bathroom was stocked with nice toiletries. The bed was very comfortable. The room had both AC and a ceiling fan.
Overall, we loved every minute at Staveleigh House. Both Ali and her husband Harry were first rate hosts. We have no regrets selecting the Staveleigh House and will definitely return to it the next time we are in the Berkshires!
