Ken and Marcia Andersen, first class inn keepers of Federal House Inn, welcomed us graciously into their beautiful home. Happy Anniversary! In just one year as owners, the class and style you have brought to this inn is incredible. The location of Federal House Inn in the Berkshires is a perfect location. We loved that we could make day trips...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 December 2016 via mobile

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...

From the personal response that accompanied our reservation confirmation to the warm welcome we received upon our arrival, we knew we were in for a special treat. Marcia and Ken are gracious hosts and did everything to make our stay perfect. The inviting accommodations and the cozy room were only surpassed by Marcia's gourmet breakfasts and Ken's amazing bacon recipe....

At he last minute we decided to get away to the Berkshires for one night. Checked out the reviews for the Federal House Inn, and was able to get the room I wanted. The great reviews were so accurate. We've had really good and really bad experiences at B&B's and this one was fabulous. From the moment we walked in,...

Thank you Robin, I wanted to tell you that the Great Barrington antique shops didn't open until 1pm because walking out to the living room and seeing you sitting in that chair just made me so happy. But since I try never to lie to guests I refrained. I just told myself to hope you would be back soon and...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Federal House Inn for three nights over President's Day Weekend. If you are planning on visiting the Berkshires any time of year, you MUST stay here! Marcia and Ken are the most wonderful hosts I've ever met -- their passion for what they do is amazing. They made us feel right at home...

We spent Friday night at this beautiful B&B and everything was perfect since the beginning. Marcia welcomed us and she was so warm. She showed the house. Our room was on the first floor, very big and nicely decorated. At 5 we were served delicious appetizers and wine. It was awesome!! Breakfast the next morning was as good (maybe we...

Thank you so so much for this review. I don't know what happened to the fresh fruit either....remind me when you come back and I promise to more than make up for that.

I met a friend and her 2 kids (10 & 8) for an overnight in the Berkshires. Though we ate well in Lenox and walked through Tanglewood in the snow, to be honest, it was hard to leave the Inn. It was delightful to meet our hosts, who seemed to sincerely enjoy welcoming guests. Our rooms were sheer coziness, one...

Last week I was snowbound at the Federal House for 2 nights--and what a place to be snowbound! The Inn is more than a bed breakfast--it is a place full of warmth, elegance and charm. Health delicious food, artfully presented? Check. Supremely comfortable rooms, beautifully decorated? Check. Warm, gracious, welcoming hosts? Check. I thought I'd spend most of the time...

We had read good things about this place, and they were all true. The owners were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast portion was wonderful- I like bacon, but I could easily learn to love it with the bacon they prepared. The scones and fruit were delicious, an everything else was great. The room we had (#4) had more than...

My husband and I are from Pa. We decided to go up to the Berkshires for Valentine's weekend. There are a lot of great museums there. My favorite being the Norman Rockwell Museum.

You two are so wonderful- if we end up retiring in Pennsylvania I hope you will let us claim you as friends. Actually for the years we are here in the Berkshires I want that as well but harder to get together. We really enjoyed the brief time we spent with you enough to just be greedy for more. Thanks...
