Quite different this year…..New Year’s Eve falling mid-week. Typically we fold New Year’s Eve into the weekend and create a weekend package.
But for the 2009 New Year, we acknowledge that most of you will only get one night off….so we are allowing (for the first time ever) a single night stay on New Year’s Eve…probably a rarity for Berkshires accommodations.
We have always very much enjoyed the type of guests we attract for New Year’s. Most do not want a party, or any commotion. They could stay in their home town for that. And over the years, the Berkshires seem to have recognized this and have created a certain atmosphere that accommodates.
Most of the restaurants will create special limited menus and will have an early seating and a late seating. There will probably be snow on the ground and fairy lights everywhere…so it will be magical walking back to the inn from the more than a dozen restaurant choices within walking distance. At midnight, we always offer champagne toasts (complimentary) in our private bar….and usually a few couples join us to watch the ball drop in Times Square. But we put hats, noise makers, and horns in each of our guest rooms and suspect that the rest of our guests are already celebrating their New Year privately.
The next day, in lieu of normal breakfast, we always offer a complimentary New Year’s Day brunch from 10 am until noon and allow late check-out.
New Year’s at Hampton Terrace always sells out….and we do not charge a premium for the additional amenities. Just use the in-season weekend rate quoted on our website. Most of our rooms have fireplaces and Jacuzzis (14 rooms in total) and to get a rate quote, call 800-203-0656. IMPORTANTLY, even though we are accepting single nights this year….it does not mean that you cannot stay longer. For the additional nights, we can use our off-season, mid-week rate, making a multiple night stay quite a value.
Hampton Terrace is the #1 rated Lenox inn according to Trip Advisor reviews, was chosen by BedandBreakfast.com as one of their Editor’s Picks for viewing fall foliage, is one of only four Berkshire inns recommended by the Michelin Green Guide, and has been welcoming guests since 1937. For a great Berkshire bed and breakfast experience, give us a call.
