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."
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.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay with your family in your inn. For a moment I thought I had walked into a Christmas story film. It was beautiful and is now a cherished memory. I look forward to my next stay, whether winter, summer, fall or spring (Vivaldi). - Lori Singer, Actress, Fame, Footloose
