We Have Something for Everyone

Our menu is packed with choices, too many to name here. Just know that you can enjoy traditional delights like Blueberry Pancakes or Scrambled Eggs –  or wake up to something completely different like Traditional, Cinnamon and Chocolate French Toast, Egg Casseroles, Frittatas. There is always a meat option – grilled ham steaks, or sausages – but segregated from our entree for those preferring to avoid it.   We can accommodate gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan and restricted diet guests with prior notice.

And yes, we offer at minimum eight types of fresh fruit, orange juice, cold cereals, yogurts and breads. What a way to greet the morning!

Community & Private Seating Available

Many people who frequent inns do so because of the people they can meet: international travelers, celebrities…people of all walks of life, ages, occupations and experiences. The common tables are alive with conversation. But just as many guests prefer a private table for breakfast. Our pleasure to accommodate.

The Berkshires Then and Now: Our “Gilded” past

Modern day visitors to the Berkshires follow in a tradition that was established at the end of the 19th Century, by Society players of the Northeast, who called this place home – at least during the summer!  Meet some of our neighbors.

  • Ventfort Hall – a museum to the Gilded Age
  • The Mount – Edith Wharton’s Berkshire Home, great for weddings
  • Coldbrook – part of the Cranwell Resort; spa, resort, golf and fitness center
  • Shadown Brook – now home to the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health
  • The Winthrop Estate – visitors are able to tour and experience the home as a country home, as its original inhabitants did.

"….”It was the first of December, all covered in snow…” Those words from James Taylor will forever bring me back to your place and the wonderful, warm time spent there. We arrived in the Fall (Nov. 30), when I awoke the next morning from a very restful sleep and looked out my balcony window, I knew the beauty James sings about. Quiet, white, home…the Berkshires did seem dreamlike on account of that frosting! The entire stay from beginning to end was full of wonderful images enhanced by your family’s warmth and hospitality. The ride back to New York City with Peter Reigert and Ylva Edlestein was dominated with talk about how we all felt we had just experienced a very special, magical few days, thanks in large part to your generosity. That is saying something coming from a bunch of jaded actors."
