Wonderful Hosts at an Edwardian era home, within walking distance to town center... Joan, Richard and Lisa make
you feel at home.  They can help you plan your visit to enjoy all that the area has to offer.  We will return for another stay.

The place is beautiful, full of antiques and the owners and manager are welcoming and friendly.  The inn is walking distance to shops and restaurants in Lenox and the house and grounds are meticulously kept.  Breakfast was made to order and offered a number of delicious items to go with the main course.  We wre there with one other couple during our mid-week trip to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.  We sat and chatted with them and Lisa manager, for over 2 hours and didn’t feel rushed...

Great old fashioned Inn and friendly atmosphere, location also nice as within a walking distance from the town and restaurants. The hosts were extremely friendly and made us feel like home. Warmly recommend the nearby Kennedy park for a short hikes, also within walking distance from the Inn.

Gorgeous property, great location to Lenox restaurants, etc, and delightful owners and manager. They accommodated me with my tiny dog when another possibility tanked. The owners are intelligent, interesting people, as were the varied guests. I particularly connected with Lisa Mears, Manager and daughter of Joan and Richard; she also prepared a delectable breakfast.

We have stayed at Whistler's Inn several times and highly recommend it. It is an elegant inn, with lots of charm and character, that feels steeped in history. Each room is decorated in antiques and has a cozy and comfortable charm. The owners are friendly and helpful and entertained us with stories of their worldwide travels. The common areas include a well stocked library, and a music room with a Steinway piano, where one can read and relax and enjoy the peaceful ambience of the inn.

“My wife and I went out to the Berkshires for her birthday weekend, and stayed two nights at the Whistlers Inn. We loved it, what a great place. The Inn is really fantastic, we love antiques and older historic vibes, and the Whistlers Inn had this in droves. We spent literally hours talking with Richard and Lisa, about every subject you could imagine. Breakfast was really tasty both mornings, delicious French toast, quiche, eggs made to order, great coffee. A thoughtful, warm, truly unique environment. The highest possible recommendation.”  Reviewed 11/17/11 (Bed and
