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.

"…We think the best part of the holiday was spent at the Hampton Terrace Inn in Lenox. This was a small inn (12 double bedrooms) which was an old clapboard house, full of character, and lovingly restored and furnished by the owner and his wife. Our bedroom was very spacious and comfortable and everything about the house was friendly, with welcoming lounges to relax in, and the family dog wagging his tail and coming up to us every time we walked across the lawn to the main house. We enjoyed talking to the owner, and to other guests over home cooked breakfasts, and for dinner, a street lined with very good restaurants was just a few minutes walk away. This was, without a doubt, the best part of our holiday, and we would not hesitate in recommending the Hampton Terrace to others."
