Linda and Phil are wonderful hosts. Their genuine interest and attention to detail is self-evident throughout Brook Farm Inn. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, and both breakfasts we had were scrumptious! We also particularly enjoyed Phil's magic tricks. A highly recommended Lenox bed and breakfast. More...

What an delight! Just passing through Lenox on a bit of a road trip, but made a reservation at Brook Farm Inn to ensure I had a great night on the road - and I did! The historic house is fabulous: clean, beautifully decorated, and perfectly situated to allow you to enjoy Lenox. Breakfast was really yummy, and our hosts were affable, charming, and dedicated to the details. One of the best parts? The hot water on the third floor was powerful and really hot (which isn't always the case at small inns). Will I stay there again? Ab-so-lutely! More...

We went to Brook Farm Inn for an overnight in October - it was the perfect New England Inn experience. Our room was very charming with a working fireplace, which we enjoyed after a night downtown of dinner and drinks. It took about 10 minutes to walk from the Inn to downtown Lenox, which was a huge plus! The staff were all attentive and friendly, and the Innkeeper was very helpful and informative, with recommendations of what to do nearby. I'd gladly go back and recommend it to anyone traveling to the area. More...

A Lenox Gem.  Brook Farm Inn, right in the center of Lenox on Hawthorne Street, a wooded road which takes you to the back entrance of Tanglewood is a gem.  Its new owners, Angela Lomato and John Nelson, have made an excellent property even better.  Our room had a new wing chair next to the small sofa so we could sit separately and read or chat.Angela attended to our every request with understand and grace.  She even got us a jar of cookies that we like for the room.  Extra hangers came in a flash.  She has introduced hot steel-cut oatmeal for the delicious breakfast buffet.We have stayed at the inn for two decades and think it is better than ever.  Angela and John have made our old favorite haunt shine.  Come and see how vibrant the place has become under their thoughtful management.

I was passing through the Lee/Lenox area on business and needed to make a last minute reservation. Angela, one of the innkeepers, was extremely pleasant over the phone and very accommodating. When I arrived, I was greeted by Angela and Robert, the manager, and given a tour of the gorgeous property. I stayed in the Garden View Room, which is quaintly decorated and spacious, with a large private bath and closet. It was well beyond my needs and expectations. Although I only stayed for one night, I wish I could've stayed longer. This would be a great place for an anniversary trip to the Berkshires. It seems like a wonderful weekend getaway spot! More...

Pro's:Lovely breakfast -- pancakes, sausage, granola, juice, fruit, etc. Tv & cable in room.Mini fridge outside of room.Lovely host.Cons:The decoration needs to be updated --pinkish walls, older wallpaper, etc.I could hear the person upstairs moving around at 4:30 am due to the creaking floors. This was rather annoying.Rooms are ok. There was a fireplace we thought we could use (in our room) but they are not used till October. We would have liked to know this. More...

Enjoyed our babymoon at Brook Farm Inn earlier this fall.  We booked the Tanglewood suite- on the 2nd floor of the smaller back building (rather than in the main house).  The suite was incredibly spacious and immaculate.   One of us was also delighted by the glass of sherry awaiting our arrival and the hand written welcome note.  Phil, Linda and Robert were kind and welcoming; Robert oriented us to our lodgings, and Phil chatted us up over breakfast. The best features of the suite were the large size, especially large size bathroom with large whirlpool tub, and the 2 fireplaces.  Did I mention how clean it was?  There were a couple features that could use updating in the suite:  the sofa in the sitting room, which was not even comfortable to sit on, and the DVD player in the bedroom did not work at all (nor the backup DVD player that was apparently installed when the first stopped working). The big house had several amenities worth noting- hot breakfast daily, 4pm tea daily, ample books, games and DVDs for lending, and the sitting areas near the fireplace.  There is also the option to arrange a massage in the back room of the big house- payment is easy, as it can be added onto your bill for the inn.  The inn is located quite close to downtown Lenox, where there are a few restaurants, and close to many hiking options.  The cost of the Tanglewood suite was such that this will have to be a once-in-a-lifetime visit, but we enjoyed it while it lasted!

My husband and I spent two nights at the Brook Farm Inn last month to hang out in the Berkshires and attend Wait Wait Don't Tell Me at Tanglewood. Phil, Linda, and Robert were all very pleasant, knowledgeable, and friendly. They made us feel at home right away and gave us great recommendations for sightseeing and hiking. We appreciated little touches like the welcome letter and two glasses of sherry in our room. If we hadn't gone out for sightseeing so much, we would have hung out more in the library, by the pool, or in the hammock. The B&B itself is very cute and clean. The breakfast buffet is from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. It features an entree (we had creme brulee french toast our first morning and an egg frittata on our second), granola, yogurt, bread, English muffins, fruit, coffee, tea, and juices. There is also a pantry with a Keurig, an ample collection of coffee and tea, cookies, and a refrigerator for guests to store food and drink.We decided to walk to Tanglewood from the Brook Farm Inn with our picnic basket (taking West St rather than Hawthorne St to have a sidewalk, per Robert's recommendation). One thing I'd improve: the wifi signal wasn't very strong in our room (the Victorian Room). More...

A friend and I enjoyed a very happy stay at the Brook Farm Inn, a lovely home, a short walk (up a good hill) to the center of Lenox and very close to the Hawthorne St. entrance to Tanglewood. Warmly welcomed by friendly proprietors Phil and Linda, helped to our third floor room by Robert, we arrived to a charming bedroom overlooking the back yard and two glasses of sherry. The beds were comfortable, the room quiet, and the breakfast delicious, with a lively sweet French toast, hard boiled eggs, a variety of cereal, muffin, and fruit choices. We would definitely return again. More...

Such a great find! I stayed here for one night with my mom, sister, and family friend, and we all were completely charmed. As soon as we walked in we were offered tea and scones in front of the fireplace (very welcome on a winter afternoon!), and the scones were to die for. The owners are welcoming and attentive, genuinely interested in making sure you have a comfortable stay. The building itself is a beautiful old Victorian, and our room was a suite with a fireplace and enough beds for 4--not to mention the handwritten welcome, glasses of sherry, and bedside book waiting for us! Breakfast was delicious (amazing banana chocolate chip muffins, plus they refilled the coffee constantly so it never ran out). Linda and Phil are totally knowledgeable about all the area attractions, which was especially helpful during the off-season. I'd love to find an excuse to go back! More...

My wife and I just returned from a three-day, two-night stay here. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. When we first arrived, there was a hand-written note and two small glasses of sherry welcoming us in our room. Downstairs were tea, chocolate chip cookies and warm scones fresh from the oven. (They serve tea each afternoon at 4:00.)The breakfast was delicious! Among the standard selection of juices, coffee and tea were bowls of fresh fruit, granola, warm sliced bread, homemade coffee cakes, fruit compotes, assorted egg dishes, and other goodies. (When we raved about their crème brûlée french toast, the owners gave us a copy of the recipe.)The grounds are green and nicely landscaped; fresh flowers abound. The back yard features a small swimming pool and a shaded hammock for lazy afternoons.We stayed in one of the smaller rooms for our first visit, but they let us peek into some of the other rooms briefly between guest check-out/check-in, and the ones we saw were quite lovely. Our room was clean and fresh--not a whiff of smoke, dust or anything else. The entire house is decorated tastefully and elegantly. Be sure to check out the pictures on their website.We'll be back next summer for sure! Probably sooner than that, as the foliage is spectacular in the autumn. Heck, we may even head out there in the winter for a couple days of snowshoeing. More...

My husband and I came here for two nights on a Winter Lover's Package, and we enjoyed our stay very much.  The Inn is close to many areas for winter activities such as snowshoeing, but unfortunately a bit far from the X-C ski centers.Our room was clean and comfortable, if somewhat small given the price.  The breakfast was really outstanding for one morning and only barely surpassing continental-style for the other.  The owners were hospitable and it seems that they have many return guests.  They know the town and the area well, and they serve a lovely tea with excellent scones in the afternoons.  The library is well-stocked and one could easily spend all day just in the B&B -- but with the Berkshires right outdoors, why would you?Overall, we had a lovely stay and were happy with our package, which included dinner in town and tickets to the Norman Rockwell museum, but the regular price might make us look around for a B&B with value for us in the future.  If you're coming to spend most of your time in and around a relaxing spot, this might be for you!

I just spent several nights at the Brook Farm Inn while attending some concerts at Tanglewood (June 2010). I was very pleased with my stay and note the following standouts: 1) Excellent proximity to Tanglewood. Literally down the road from the back entrance. 2) Owners (Phil and Linda) are very friendly and knowledgeable about area events. Phil was especially easy to talk with and recommended an excellent hike in a local nature conservatory. 3) The facility and breakfast are what one would expect from a quality B&B. The room and outdoor pool were spotless and the owners put together a detailed welcome package with a detailed history of the property and even two glasses of sherry as a little welcome surprise. Nice touches.If pressed for a criticism, the only thing I can say is the television included in the room had seen better days. It had apparently been dropped and displayed some pretty obvious cracks in the case. It ever so slightly detracted from an otherwise beautiful room.Overall: Excellent and would definitely recommend.
