The Garden Gables Inn is perfectly located in Old Lenox with so many wonderful restaurant and shopping choices within walking distance. We stayed in Honeycrisp Cottage last year and Macoun Cottage this year. Each has a king size bed and a working fireplace which makes for a cozy stay. The breakfasts are made to order with wonderful choices like apple cinnamon stuffed French Toast, Blueberry pancakes and other delicious options. We have also ordered simple scrambled eggs and bacon, also made to order. It's an outstanding choice in the Berkshires!

Room tip: The cottages are possibly quieter but the Inn itself is not noisy. Some Inn rooms have porches overlooking the yard and pool.

We enjoyed out stay at Garden Gables - it's a good location as there are excellent restaurants within walking distance and Megan was really helpful with recommendations and bookings. I loved the "sherry room" where one can enjoy a tipple in front of a real log fire (no fake gas flames here) and there is a spacious pantry area with hot drinks, including spiced apple cider, cookies and fruit available - also the use of a microwave. Our bedroom and bathroom were small - don't have the Leonard Bernstein room if you like a large room but the bed was really comfortable and it was well equipped. There was a TV and DVD player, with a good selection of up-to-date DVD's to borrow. Good breakfast menu - the blueberry buttermilk pancakes (plus bacon and maple syrup, of course) were probably the best breakfast of our whole two week trip in New England. You can also select separate items and I enjoyed poached eggs on brown toast (you can toast bread and muffins) on the last morning as I felt I had indulged in too much maple syrup!

Lovely home, hosts, breakfast, location, and service. Stayed there while taking a course at Kripalu nearby. Very happy I chose to stay here, off site, and go back to a home like feel each night. Would happily stay there again!

We said we would come back for another great experience, and we did. This time we stayed in one of the cottages, Rm. 19, which was quiet and cozy on a raw New England autumn weekend. The working fireplace was a real treat, as was the bottle of the Old Vine Zinfandel from the nearby Furnace Brook Winery, owned for the past 20 years by the same family that owns the inn. So good we took one home with us. Our room was spacious and comfortable to relax in, with two comfortable chairs near the fire place, a large bathroom and the most comfortable king sized bed ever.

We appreciated the warm greeting from Jayne and Megan who gave us a warm welcome and showed us where we could find the home made treats and sherry bar. All of the staff at Garden Gable have just the right touch, friendly and helpful while leaving plenty of space for you to enjoy all the inn has to offer. The excellent breakfast service is the finishing touch of this excellent experience. The menu is varied and high quality, served on the cheerful outdoor porch or in the main dining room.

While the inn appeared to be busy during our stay, the parking lot was almost full, we never felt crowded or rushed, the pantry remained fully stocked at all hours, and there was always a delicious homemade cookie to be had.

Garden Gables offers the quintessential Berkshires inn experience. Our stay could not have been better.

We had a great time here. Cozy rooms (despite their size), complete with fireplaces. We weren't in the main house, so the peace and quiet was almost palpable. We took full advantage of the mingling hour (sherry and munchies) as well as the home-made snacks (which were delicious) in the pantry, and were surprised when no one else was there (though there didn't seem to be a lot of other guests).

The breakfasts are delicious and filling (and I'm not a breakfast person), and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I definitely plan on going back, though I'm not sure if I'd rather go back in the summer or winter.
