The owner’s 2 story farmhouse features kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom with whirlpool tub, personal office or bonus room, and conservatory/sun room featuring 8 foot windows that were reclaimed from an old church on the 1st level. Upstairs is a generous master bedroom with ensuite full bathroom, and a bedroom suite (two walk-through rooms) with its own bathroom. Plenty of built-ins give this house character. The house is floored with wide board pine. A full basement has laundry, storage space, and extra freezers. The current photos of the innkeeper's house were taken with an iPhone, so the quality is not great. Two rooms have not yet been photographed (extra room downstairs and second bedroom suite upstairs). The property also has a barn, for additional storage, and a fourth building which is half mechanical room and half Inn office and storage for linens, supplies, etc. All this on 10.7 lovely acres. Drive down a long maple lined driveway to reach the Inn, which is well set back from the road! We have ample parking, and can host events. Our soaring post and beam Great Room and cozy Library lend themselves to a variety of uses. Although not shown in the photo, the open fireplace has been fitted with a wood burning insert - this upgrade has saved thousands of dollars on heating fuel costs, as it generates a tremendous amount of heat and provides a lovely atmosphere for our winter guests.

Local towns and villages include trendy Hudson, Lenox, Stockbridge, Lee, Kinderhook, Chatham, Pittsfield, and Great Barrington. This is the sweet spot where the Hudson Valley meets the beautiful Berkshire foothills!
