Brook Farm Inn
Bed and Breakfast

Lenox, Massachusetts

Located just down the hill and around the bend from Lenox Center, Brook Farm Inn welcomes you to the
grace of its Victorian past and the comfort of the present.

Lovingly furnished, this 130-year-old home, now a Bed and Breakfast Inn, offers its guests comfort and tranquility in a completely smoke-free environment, surrounded by the beauty of the Berkshires and a tradition of poetry and literature.

There is poetry at the very heart of Brook Farm Inn. Discover our Library, the focal point of the Inn, with its extensive collection of poetry, both traditional and contemporary, along with other fine literature...and a good selection of popular books as well. We showcase a poem of the day each morning, and we encourage our guests to browse our collection and find a book to sit and read in front of the Library fireplace, in your room, in the gardens outside, in the hammock or beside the pool.

The rooms at our Lenox bed and breakfast in the Berkshires of Massachusetts are all unique and beautifully appointed.

With the comfort of our well-appointed Lenox Bed and Breakfast guest rooms, you can enjoy tranquility and privacy on your next trip to the Berkshires. At Brook Farm Inn, you will be transported to complete relaxation with the choice of our 15 unique guest rooms, each beautifully decorated with comfortable furnishings and natural light.

Decorated with antiques, each room has its own small touches that make it special. All guest rooms have private bath and air conditioning, as well as ceiling fans, telephones, hair dryers, and luxurious bathroom amenities. Many have additional features such as fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, tv and dvd players, and canopy beds. Free wi-fi access is available.

Breakfast at The Brook Farm Inn

Start your day with our sumptuous breakfast buffet, served between 8:30 and 10:00. It’s always a healthy, ample meal with low sugar, good protein, and locally sourced ingredients from a center of organic farms and the slow food movement.  Our buffet is a gourmet Berkshire breakfast to get you started on your day.

You’ll wake to the aroma of coffee being ground for early risers. When breakfast begins, sample one of Angela or John’s legendary dishes … perhaps Spinach-Mushroom Baked Eggs or Almond Meal Buttermilk Pancakes. Or perhaps breakfast will be White Cheddar and Dijon baked eggs, a frittata, Scrambled Eggs with Boursin and Salmon, or Cinnamon Baked French Toast with local Maple syrup or fruit sauce. Sometimes we’ll make a treat we’ve learned from our trip to Greece or a German breakfast favorite.

 

Have Afternoon Tea at the Inn

Come back to us for afternoon tea Friday and Saturday at 4:00, served in the spacious library. Sit in front of the fireplace with a cup of freshly brewed tea, and indulge in delicious home baked scones.

You’ll be refreshed and ready for your evening out at a concert, theater performance, or one of the area’s fine restaurants.

A short leisurely walk from our inn will find you in historic Lenox village where "in the streets are old trees used to living with people." Shop in fine boutiques, find antique treasures or dine in splended restaurants.

The Lenox area has much to offer. "For beauty being the best of all we know," visit Edith Wharton's home, The Mount, Chesterwood, and the Norman Rockwell Museum.

Come and Celebrate the Seasons With Us

Lenox is an all season area: the color and woodsmoke of autumn, the sparkle of winter lights on glistening snow, with excellent skiing nearby, and spring hiking over mountain paths. In summer, "when evening is spread against the sky," hear the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood, see dance at Jacob's Pillow, enjoy an outdoor Shakespearean play, or a musical comedy at the Berkshire Theatre Festival. Your comfort at Brook Farm Inn and your enjoyment of the Lenox area are of the utmost importance to us.

Massage Services

Enhance your stay with a relaxing massage. A team of over 12 licensed massage therapists offer massage (Swedish, couples, deep tissue, pre- & post-sports and pre- & post natal), reflexology, and acupressure. Please book your appointment at the check-in window or when you make a reservation, you'll be shown a selection of add-on items, such as massage services, after you make your room selection. We are happy to accommodate spur-of-the-moment requests, although it’s best to give us 24 hours to book.
