Tucked away in a beautiful wooded glen a short distance from Tanglewood, this 1880s inn is hosted by innkeepers who are history and music aficionados and often have classical music playing in the fireplace-lighted library. There are occasional poetry readings. Rooms have antiques, romantic style, and in many cases their own fireplace. The most modern building offers a pair of handicap-accessible rooms.

The Brook Farm Inn is a lovely inn with a relaxing atmosphere. Located just two blocks from Lenox center it is in a perfect location for walking into town and very close to Tanglewood, Shakespeare and Co. and other sites. Unlike many other inns in the area, it is not filled with junky knick knacks or Laura Ashley imitation florals. Rather it is done in a more genteel warm and comfortable style. The downstairs has a lovely library room with lots
of books and puzzles. The rooms are spacious, and many have fireplaces. We stayed in a room in early May that was quite large, with a nice modern bathroom, fireplace, etc. for $150 night since it was technically the "off season". After staying in several other inns in the area, Brook Farm is my choice for my next stay because of its comfortable environment, good service and friendly owners.
