Entrance is thru the grand foyer of the country home built by Frederick T. Frelinghuysen, Secretary of State under President Chester Arthur, in 1881. We were very warmly greeted upon arrival, and it only got better from there.
We stayed in suite 301, one of the most modest rooms in the inn, but were very happy with our room. Clean, tidy and very private.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, most offering their names and remembering ours.
Small plates and cocktails on the lawn, with it's view of the Berkshires were very good. The server even brought me my refill to the lawn as I wandered and smoked.
From here we visited Tanglewood, which is about a mile and a half away.
The town of Lenox, shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. The restaurant and wine bar Alta is worth the walk.
Will stay there again this year for the right show at Tanglewood.
