I hate to say anything bad about this place because the owners were delightful and helpful, the room was really clean, breakfast was better than we expected from a motel (there were fresh strawberries to go with the cereal), and the decor was more than nice enough. Though the room was small, it was OK. But here's the problem - what really matters is the bed, and I am compelled to say that it was the worst mattress my wife and I have slept on in a great many years, and that includes an extensive amount of traveling. I couldn't get comfortable and it took until the wee hours of the morning before I finally fell asleep from sheer exhaustion. (In the morning, my wife confirmed that though her side of the bed wasn't great, my side was worse.) Unfortunately, we were a very late arrival, and by then the office was closed. Knowing we going to a concert at Tanglewood, at least half an hour away, the owners had, considerately, called us to say that we would probably not arrive before the office closed, so, just in case, they would leave the door to the room open and leave the key inside. Had we arrived earlier and laid down on the bed in time, we could have asked for another room, as perhaps not all the beds are like this. Judging from the other reviews, I'm guessing that this is an exception. So, travelers, I call your attention to the condition of the mattress in room #7. Avoid it, and ask for another room. And I urge the management to replace this mattress, as it was so bad we left after the first night of a two-night non-refundable reservation. This is a correctable problem, and I would have much preferred to write a glowing review for the very nice people who own and run this place.
