This place is a short walk from town, easy to reach when you are walking! Room was comfortable, very clean & bathroom was bigger than a lot I've seen. Hosts were friendly & at Breakfast, Laura was willing to make you what you wanted. Rates are reasonable as well.

The photos and some reviews indicated that this is a quaint and charming Inn, formerly a grand residence. It was one of the only B&Bs with vacancy and affordability when we booked last minute. Our room had not only a bed, but a sitting area with love-seat, and an outdoor porch. It felt a bit like a cabin, quaint with... More

We enjoyed meeting you. Thanks for the description of Whistler's Inn and the expansive breakfast, as well as your experience. Some guests like to stay in the Santa Fé room because it is more rustic in character, and it is set apart from the main inn where people like to have more privacy. The room also has its own porch...

We arrived on a hot day in August. The house has no air conditioning except for small window units in the bedrooms. They had not been turned on prior to our arrival thus taking a few hours for the rooms to cool off. Some bedrooms were of adequate size, but the bathrooms were miniscule. The furniture is old English is... More

Whistler's Inn was built to stay reasonably cool during the summer months, especially in the common rooms downstairs. The ceilings are very high, and therefore the heat rises. We do put the air-conditioners on prior to the arrival of a guest if we know what hour they are arriving. We do not have the air-conditioners running all day long in... More

Just back from a culture- and nature-filled trip to Lenox, Mass, where I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Whistler's Inn. The house is lovely, slightly run down and in need of renovation, but full of character, quirks, and maybe a ghost or two.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Featured on The Travel Channel and Great Escapes, this 1820 English Tudor mansion in the heart of the Berkshires was once the home of the railroad tycoon Ross Wynans Whistler, nephew of the painter James M. Whistler. Close to Tanglewood and all major Berkshire cultural venues, Whistler's Inn captures the warmth and elegance of a bygone era. On six acres of gardens and woodlands and two blocks from the center of Lenox, this quiet antique and art-filled retreat has an extensive library and French music room with a Steinway grand piano. A buffet breakfast is served with recipes inspired by the cook's world travels (Spain, France, Israel, South America, Japan and Morocco). ... more   less
