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.

"During the Shakespeare & Company production of my play An Impossible Life, my wife and I — and the director and cast of the play — not only stayed at Hampton Terrace, but also hung out there, partied there, and had a wonderful time there. Stan and his family were welcoming and made us all feel so much at home, we all left wishing they would adopt us. A splendid place to work, to play, to rest, and to meet friends and colleagues. We’ll be back. Frequently."
