If you are like me who does not enjoy cookie-cutter accommodation/service from chain hotels and inns and if you enjoy being pleasantly surprised by superb, personal service, you will love and look forward to repeat stays at this stately home built in 1824. Ideally situated near very beautiful Berkshire attractions like Stockbridge, the Norman Rockwell Museum and Tanglewood, it is...

If I could give this place 10 stars I would. From the moment we stepped into the inn we were warmly greeted and felt right at home. Our room had a private entrance which was awesome. An electric fireplace was so cozy and romantic. ❤️In the evening our hosts spread out assorted cheese and crackers, red and white wine or...

And Bruce and Bonnie from the moment your car pulled away we missed you! I missed seeing Bonnie come out for her morning cup of coffee with her giant smile and positive attitude. Gotta say we missed all the compliments you lavished on us. Mostly we just plain old missed you. Now this review! We are the ones who thank...

We spent the weekend at the Federal House Inn, and from the moment we rang the front door bell to the time we checked out, we felt right at home and very welcome. Marsha and Ken are the most gracious hosts, who treat you like you are old friends, rather than paying guests. The breakfast is outstanding, made to order....

We stayed at the Inn 11-5- 2016 for 2 nights. We apparently booked late because we had the smallest room which we still found ample in size and very comfortable bedding with the softest sheets I have slept on. The Innkeepers were gracious and friendly as well as helpful with dinners and reservations. The food was delicious. Always 2 choices...

This place has been given a real face lift and created a marvellously welcoming and comfortable place to stay in Lee/ Stockbridge. The owners have refreshed the rooms and public spaces to a high standard. The offer of an early glass of wine and canapes after a busy day was most enjoyable, as was the conversation with other guests. A...

First of all, we were treated better than royalty! No really! The hosts were so very gracious and helpful especially considering good places to explore and excellent recommendations for places to eat, shop and places to go. We stayed in the Billiards Room and it was lush - four-poster bed, electric fireplace, the decor was so welcome and inviting. The...

Found this sweetheart inn halfway between finger lakes and Martha's Vineyard on my way home from dropping my daughter at college. What a find! I had forgotten to eat and was surprised with delights on a personal snack tray. ( including strawberry soup and scones) The owners are new at this business and if anything that is a big plus...

My husband and I decided on the Federal House Inn as our first time at a bed and breakfast to celebrate our anniversary weekend. We could not have been more thrilled with the choice! Marsha and Ken were exceptional. They made an extra effort to have champagne and chocolate strawberries waiting for us in our room at the request of...

I have never been a fan of bed and breakfasts but came on a trip with a group of 16 friends and they decided on this place. Best decision ever! It is so outstanding that I feel like I have to review it now -- even though we have two more nights -- because everyone needs to know how great...

My wife and I enjoyed 6 fabulous nights at the Federal House in mid-October 2016. The new owners Ken and Marsha are outstanding hosts who make everyone feel at ease and welcome.
