I stayed here one night to see a concert at Tanglewood and would certainly go back. I made my reservation through Booking.com and it was $217.81. The location is terrific. It's just on the edge of downtown and a perfect location to go to Tanglewood. I had a Queen canopy bed with an en suite bathroom. Everything was clean and... More

The Summer White House has nine rooms, each with a theme for the First ladies of the past Presidents. The Nancy Reagan room was very comfortable with good views from the second floor overlooking Lenox. Our hosts were very friendly and greeted us as soon as we arrived. They provided us with information about Lenox and the surrounding area and... More

We went with Geoiceland tours. Our driver done the commentary as well and was so informative. But the glacier walk and Thomas's commentary and very good tales were great. The views and colours made this the trip of the holiday. We also went to several waterfalls. This was a full day we were out for about 11 hours but well... More

Within 5 minutes of going to our room we were brought ice and cold water by Melissa, the wonderful manager. The location is unbeatable. It is right on Main... More

The Summer White House was built in 1885 and is filled with antiques that make you feel as if you have stepped back in time. The B and B owners were incredibly helpful with recommendations as to which things to do in the area - there is so much that it is difficult to cram everything you want to do... More

Despite the frigid temperatures outside, our Presidents' Weekend stay at The Summer White House could not have been better. Our room offering a view of Main Street was spacious and beautifully furnished with a very comfortable bed, excellent lighting for reading and a decent-sized flat screen TV offering lots of channels.

Charming is the word for this B&B in little Lenox, MA. The rooms are equiped with canopy beds, fireplaces, and lovely sitting rooms. Breakfast is buffet style and loaded with variety. We met folks from all over the United States as well as England. The conversation was lively and I even learned that theTanglewood concerts were broadcast on local radio.... More

An innkeeper who has been presiding over this excellent, antique establishment for 30 years. Courtly, in the middle of historic Lenox, a great kitchen and all the info you need to know in the region. Charming.

The Summer White House is wonderful. Excellent value for the price. Central location, comfortable room, quiet, easy access to Tanglewood, and excellent hosts. Frank and Mary are the perfect hosts, friendly and interesting but respectful of guests' privacy. They magically appear just as you needed something!

“There is some traffic near the B and B every night when Tanglewood attendees drive through town, so a room toward the back of the building might be better. However, we were right in the front and it was never too noisy to sleep and Tanglewood traffic is quite civilized!”
