My husband and I stayed at Birchwood for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the inn. The staff are quite gracious and allow you as much privacy as you like. The common areas are very inviting, as is the garden and front porch. The breakfasts were fabulous - all the baked goods were made at the inn, and there was... More

The Birchwood Inn team is delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We wish you had told us about the air conditioner, and we would have been happy to try to fix it or replace it during your stay. We aren't happy when our guests aren't completely happy! More

Just celebrated our 50th Anniversary at the Birchwood Inn. We have stayed in Lenox for years and finally found a place where the people, food and accommodations are extraordinary. We couldn't find a more magical place in the Berkshires and thanks to Ellen and Mike we will never forget our stay.

We spent a wonderful weekend at the Birchwood Inn. Our room was very quaint, comfortable and extremely clean. The comforts of home in the bath were a nice addition. We enjoyed chatting with Ellen and Mike and we felt like family. During our stay we had afternoon tea, cobbler and lemon squares. Breakfast was delicious - different every day. I... More

Great place to get away and to still be walkable to Lenox. Fabulous to bring your dog along or just for a romantic visit for two. The breakfast is gourmet cooked and the rooms are elegant old New England. We would stay here again and again. Loved the care taken by the innkeepers and the ambience.

I just read the review by Build NYC. Having stayed at the Birchwood many times each summer for the past decade plus, mostly in the Post Room when it is available, I cannot disagree more with that review.

This "hotel" was more like a college dorm room after a frat party. I checked in and checked out five minutes later. As I stood in the room using my phone to search for alternate lodging I was afraid to sit on the bed for fear of being bitten by something. The Assistant inn keeper named Mike, was shocked to...

It's finally time to get out there and get back to the Berkshires, to the Birchwood Inn in Lenox, MA. What a delight to be on the porch of the Birchwood, watching the leaves unfurl in front of us, or at least that's how Nature and Spring looked last weekend.
