My third weekend at the Kemble Inn. New ownership continues to do really classy renovations of the guest rooms and now of the back porch, which is one of the most pleasant spots in Lenox to have a great meal or just to hang out for drinks. The porch overlooks newly landscaped terraces and a rolling lawn, as well as...

When I think of a bed and breakfast, I picture "old lady" type furniture from the 60s, floral bed spreads, mediocre cold breakfast (that I would typically reject), old old carpet.... that sort of stuff. I once stayed at the Kemble Inn a very long time ago (sometime in 2006), and this was my experience. However, since the Kemble Inn...

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts - and I'm so glad that you enjoyed the improvements. Sometimes I do have to remind myself of what the inn was like just two short years ago. We have lots more that we want to do - but it's nice to hear our customers are enjoying the time, money and...

My wife and I just stayed at the Kemble Inn for two nights (they have a three night minimum in season, but had an opening) and my review is decidedly mixed. It cost $450 per night, and, although it was high season in the Berkshires, accounting for some of the expense, I expected much more. We stayed on the third...

I had never been to Lenox, and was looking forward to enjoying the charms of the town and the cultural attractions. The Kemble Inn turned out to be the perfect base. GREAT location, just a 5-minute walk from Lenox shops and restaurants, 10-minute walk to Shakespeare and Co. Had a huge, quiet, comfortable room. Loved lingering over delicious, full breakfasts...

Spent three nights there recently on a reunion with my daughter. Great, comfortable room, terrific food, exceptionally friendly, helpful staff. Free, convenient parking, easy walk to town, Shakespeare, and even Tanglewood. The tranquil view from the covered veranda is great and must be fabulous during fall foliage season. What a lovely place to enjoy the exceptional meals served! This is...

Hi Alice - glad that you enjoyed our location and the talents of our new chef. The views from the veranda in the fall are my favorite of all year long. Look out for some fall mid-week specials, and perhaps you can take advantage.

We stayed for a couple nights during the holiday week. If TripAdvisor allowed decimals, I might rate the Kemble Inn a 4.5, as there were so many positives. The location of the Kemble Inn is unbeatable. Once we arrived at the Kemble Inn, we only drove our car when we went to Tanglewood and a short trip into Lee. Tanglewood...

Hi Steve - thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. Hope that you'll return soon where we can earn that last half, or full star from you.

Stayed at the Inn for a weekend to get away from the city and take in a show at Tanglewood. It is the perfect location - just outside the main shopping area and only about a 1.25 mile walk to tanglewood (we walked with our chairs to avoid the chaotic traffic). The rooms were lovely and were quiet - which...

I recently planned a gathering at Kemble Inn for the non-profit I work for. The team at Kemble Inn was absolutely TERRIFIC. They were helpful, considerate and efficient. The food was also divine – there was a running joke during the event that if we moved the crab cakes to where we wanted people to go they would follow. Our...

Scott and Constantine were friendly and informative. The breakfast that comes with the room was wonderful. We were able to walk to the shops in Lenox because this historic mansion is in town. Our room was delightful, comfortable and quiet. We will be back.
