“Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

My girlfriend and I booked a room looking for a quiet weekend together. I spoke with Jen when I reserved the room and had a brief conversation with her about things to do in the area and that we were looking for a quiet weekend. I would like to personally thank Jen for making sure we got what we wanted. On arrival We had are room upgraded, although this was during the off season I thought the gesture was real nice. The rooms are not exactly upscale, but thats not what we were looking for and I feel they are worth the price. They were clean w/wirlpool baths which was a nice touch. Breakfast was included, and I have to say the food was excellent. We ate here both mornings and both of us had different items each day. The second night of our stay we had dinner at their restaraunt, Jen sat us in the most private area of the restaraunt, I like the fact she remembered me saying we were looking for a quiet weekend on the phone. Again the food was outstanding the appetizers and both our main courses were outstanding and generous in portion. Thanks again Jen for adding a personal touch to ensure we enjoyed our stay. If your looking for an economical place close to town (walking), with great service and great food stay at the Village Inn.

We have to say we were outright delighted with this place, where we spent a weekend three hours north of New York City for a second time. It is small and intimate, located in the oldest building in the village, dating back to the late 1700s. It has comfortable and atmospheric rooms with some antique furniture. It is more rustic than lavish - the room still has a VCR! - but that is the charm. But our room still had 4mb/s wifi (although not all rooms do). It is located within walking distance of dozens of other shops and cafes on the main street. And one of its main advantages is its in-house restaurant, Rumpelstiltzkins, which produces extremely good food, New England Traditional with a French/italian spin, at very attractive prices. So you don't even have to go out, but if you do, there are dozens of interesting museums and restaurants and other attractions in the surrounding area (try the nearby bookstore which serves wine in the evenings). At some times of year they offer a $50 voucher for the restaurant with the room, which we got. And it all meant we felt we got extremely good value for an atmospheric and comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the front tier over the lobby area, not the series of rooms in the rear extension.

If, while visiting the Berkshires, you want a cozy, comfortable, clean and affordable bed and breakfast, this is the place. It's just what you want in classic New England style. Breakfast served on the covered porch - hot, delicious and plenty of it. Don't expect flat panel tv's and turn down service ..... but don't expect to pay $350 a night either!

Room Tip: If you can't climb stairs, don't stay on the third floor.

Where to begin? The fact that the rooms are small, and I had one of the better ones, not charming or quaint ambience at all like any normal B&B, in Lenox or elsewhere in our experience, totally out of date, linoleum floor and moldy bathroom and tub, dirty, smelly, all in all like my old college fraternity house and room that my parents took one look at and almost had a heart attack. A great location in the middle of Lenox does not come even remotely close to makeup for all the really unpleasant things about this place's public areas and rooms. We could not wait to leave. Cannot begin to understand how anyone would rate this as anything but a loser. Certainly makes one wonder. Tip to owners......spend a little on maintenance and improvements every now and then.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

Stayed 2 nights when place was fairly empty. Booked way ahead and they gave us room 3rd floor. So tiny, carpet dirty, windows filthy. Cluttered with furniture and dingy. Could hardly walk around room. King bed was two twins slapped together. Left and stayed in Pittsfield route 7 at Yankee motor inn. Half the price with beautiful view to the back and outstanding clean up to date room! Although,Village inn has excellent dinner restaurant!!! And breakfast was very good service and food. They need a major look at their rooms!!! Would never stay there. I grew up in the berkshires and some places in this area think they can call anything a B&B!

thank you so very much, our peaceful room and breakfast service were complete and attentive to our individual tastes, the fireplace and traditional room decor with individualized temperature control gave a real warmth to our stay, the whirlpool private tub with accompanying amenities provided for our bathing, and refreshment needs quite nicely, feeling more like guests in a family home, we enjoyed the wide ranging library of games and movies for in-room relaxation, we found the accommodations quiet, private, and romantic. the B&B being centrally located to area interests, including the Norman Rockwell Museum and factory outlets made our days more relaxed and less rushed, off street parking was found to be secure and more than adequate with ample lighting, our breakfast selections were varied, yet of delicious quality with fresh fruit and baked goods readily available, do try the quiche! by choosing to come visit mid-week off season, we were sorry not to experience the praised restaurant offerings, despite this missed experience, the quiet friendly inviting atmosphere draws us back there in memory often - with thankfulness - Mike and Sharon

My wife and I stayed here the Saturday and Sunday evenings of Hurricane Irene, having planned on attending concerts at Tanglewood Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. (For the first time in Tanglewood's 74-year history, they cancelled the Sunday afternoon concert due to Hurricane Irene.) This B&B gives new meaning to the words "centrally located": You can walk to Tanglewood (although the walk back to the B&B in the dark might be a challenge), and it is situated on the main street of Lenox, MA with perhaps 10 restaurants on this street and two side streets. (A few doors down from The Village Inn is a great pastry place -- had a wonderful fruit tart and a chocolate mousse in a chocolate cup. Also, there is an AMAZING independent book store on one of the side streets.) One of the things that made this B&B so wonderful was the very friendly staff. I am very sensitive to noise, and I found this place remarkably quiet. We stayed in Room 16 (overlooking the back parking lot), and I was concerned that we would hear cars going in and out throughout our stay. Nope. Quiet. Also, I did not hear any noise from our neighbors. I should mention that the B&B host noted that all 32 rooms HAD been full booked (and paid for), but 20 rooms were subsequently cancelled due to Hurricane Irene (the host mentioned that they gave those 20 customers vouchers for free stays in the future), so maybe the fact that the B&B ended up being more than half empty contributed to the quietness? The room was nicely furnished in Americana furniture, the king-size bed was firm but surprisingly comfortable, and the bathroom, though modest in size, had a whirlpool bath/shower combo in the corner. One thing I find VERY irritating about B&Bs and regular hotels is the poor lighting. Not so here. There were several table lamps, the main ceiling light was so bright that we kept it off most of the time, and two very powerful (3-way bulb) lights over each side of the bed made reading in bed a delight. Breakfast was buffet style the first morning (and is usually buffet style), with eggs, pancakes [I didn't try the pancakes, so can't comment], fresh orange juice, fresh fruit salad, an upscale brand of tea, and AMAZING cinnamon rolls. I was VERY happy with this buffet (and my wife, who typically eats more healthy than I, was delighted with the oatmeal that was also served at the buffet). The second morning, due to the fact that there were few customers in the B&B, they decided not to serve from a buffet. Rather, (even better!) we were given menus and ordered whatever we wanted for breakfast. One of the two evenings we stayed there we had dinner at the B&B's restaurant. GREAT food. (I had the lobster pie, my wife the salmon.) Overall, despite the fact that I'm a very picky person, I found little to complain about at The Village Inn. We had a great stay and we would definitely return. HIGHLY recommended.
