About the Inn
A HISTORY OF HAMPTON TERRACE
The property that Hampton Terrace is on was originally the site of Lenox's blacksmith. In 1852, Edmund Spencer built a home on the property, and was acquired in 1867 by the widow of Ogden Hoffman, "one of the most eloquent lawyers New York ever contained."
EXPERIENCE HAMPTON TERRACE
You experience the charm of Hampton Terrace even before you set foot on our grounds. Your drive through the fabulous Berkshires gives you a taste of what drew some of our country's great families here more than a century ago. The natural beauty of the rolling hills and the panoramic vistas expresses its greatness beyond mere words.
BREAKFAST: ALL YOU CAN EAT
We have stayed at inns where a beautifully plated, delicately prepared morsel is offered; and then we head to Dunkin’ Donuts to get through the morning. Since that wouldn’t satisfy us, we want to do better for you, so we offer an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet
So, you’ve decided to come to the Berkshires. You have your bags packed, your reservations are made, and you’ve gotten yourself ready for some fun. But what are you going to do when you get here? Sure, there are numerous events and activities here – music, theatre, arts, outdoor activities, delicious food, and so much more. We certainly recommend you do these things. And, for most people, this will be more than enough. However, you are not most people. You want more. You want to be “in the know.”
