Marsha and Ken are new innkeepers, but have figured it out quickly. Really nice experience, starting with a quick tour, a clean and pleasant room, access to a stocked guest fridge with water, beer, and soda (yes, beer), 5pm wine and cheese, cozy sitting/reading areas, and delicious 3-4 course breakfast. 15 minutes from Great Barrington restaurants/movies. Would certainly visit again.

I was searching on-line for a B&B in the Lenox area earlier this year, and came across the Federal House Inn. It is often difficult to choose among accommodations, and I often make my selections based on Trip Advisor reviews and gut-feeling. My instinct told me that this was the best choice of those available. I contacted the Inn to...

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What can I say? Whatever I say it won't come close to being a response good enough for that review! Guests who become family are the very best part of innkeeping. (reading a review like this also pretty high on the list!) We are so so appreciative that we have been blessed with guests like you. Thank you from...

If you are like me who does not enjoy cookie-cutter accommodation/service from chain hotels and inns and if you enjoy being pleasantly surprised by superb, personal service, you will love and look forward to repeat stays at this stately home built in 1824. Ideally situated near very beautiful Berkshire attractions like Stockbridge, the Norman Rockwell Museum and Tanglewood, it is...

Oh Sam!! You and David are simply the best! Thanks beyond measure for the review and for the Merry Christmas phone call. The second I hung up I went and read this review and to say we appreciate it is a giant understatement. I only wish I had made that sandwich! Next time you get the overdue sandwich and we...

We spent the weekend at the Federal House Inn, and from the moment we rang the front door bell to the time we checked out, we felt right at home and very welcome. Marsha and Ken are the most gracious hosts, who treat you like you are old friends, rather than paying guests. The breakfast is outstanding, made to order....

We stayed at the Inn 11-5- 2016 for 2 nights. We apparently booked late because we had the smallest room which we still found ample in size and very comfortable bedding with the softest sheets I have slept on. The Innkeepers were gracious and friendly as well as helpful with dinners and reservations. The food was delicious. Always 2 choices...

This place has been given a real face lift and created a marvellously welcoming and comfortable place to stay in Lee/ Stockbridge. The owners have refreshed the rooms and public spaces to a high standard. The offer of an early glass of wine and canapes after a busy day was most enjoyable, as was the conversation with other guests. A...

First of all, we were treated better than royalty! No really! The hosts were so very gracious and helpful especially considering good places to explore and excellent recommendations for places to eat, shop and places to go. We stayed in the Billiards Room and it was lush - four-poster bed, electric fireplace, the decor was so welcome and inviting. The...

Found this sweetheart inn halfway between finger lakes and Martha's Vineyard on my way home from dropping my daughter at college. What a find! I had forgotten to eat and was surprised with delights on a personal snack tray. ( including strawberry soup and scones) The owners are new at this business and if anything that is a big plus...

My husband and I decided on the Federal House Inn as our first time at a bed and breakfast to celebrate our anniversary weekend. We could not have been more thrilled with the choice! Marsha and Ken were exceptional. They made an extra effort to have champagne and chocolate strawberries waiting for us in our room at the request of...

I have never been a fan of bed and breakfasts but came on a trip with a group of 16 friends and they decided on this place. Best decision ever! It is so outstanding that I feel like I have to review it now -- even though we have two more nights -- because everyone needs to know how great...
