With New Year’s Eve approaching, we find ourselves looking back over the year. Looking back and reflecting on all our wonderful guests and the fun we had sharing the area and our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast with them.
We really do feel lucky, being able not only to live here in Lee, MA but also to be able to share it with so many. The Berkshires have so much to offer, from culture and history to dining, shopping, and the great outdoors.
Applegate Inn’s location puts some of the area’s very best within easy reach. Herman Melville’s Arrowhead, Becket Land Trust, Edith Wharton’s The Mount, Lee Premium Outlets, Tanglewood, Butternut Ski Center, and so much more are within minutes of our front door.
As you can see from the kind reviews below, we’re not alone in loving the area and work hard to make sure you get the most out of your stay with us.
2021 Berkshires Bed and Breakfast
“An absolutely lovely experience. The manager, Pam, has been at the Applegate for 25 years and her dedication, even through the pandemic, is obvious from the moment you meet her. She is dedicated to making the guest experience enjoyable.
She makes a beautiful hot-and-cold breakfast, bakes her own afternoon (individually wrapped) cookies to put out in the afternoon/upon arrival, and even puts out wine and cheese daily at 5pm.
Not only that, but in our room upon arrival was a small decanter of brandy and accompanying chocolate truffles. Compare that to a regular hotel minibar, which you are practically charged for even looking at it, much less taking from it.
The room felt very cozy. The bathroom was spacious, nicely decorated. Shower pressure was good. The bed was a little firmer than I would expect, but not a problem.”

“My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Applegate! Perfect Labor Day weekend getaway from NYC and great base for exploring the Berkshires.
We enjoyed exploring the beautiful grounds and relaxing by the pool. Historic home was immaculately maintained. Pam went above and beyond as our host – so welcoming and accommodating to our needs. Breakfast was delicious, and evening wine + cheese was a lovely touch. Thank you!”

“We LOVED our room and the amazing staff, especially Pam, our Innkeeper extraordinaire! Breakfast in the dining area (or porch) was beyond our wildest dreams! We would definitely return and recommend Applegate Inn to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful luxury experience that is personalized to your needs. As a plus it is an easy drive or walk to historic Lenox downtown’s shopping and dining.”
