Your Berkshires Bed and Breakfast Innkeepers

Len and Gloria have been married for 50 years. They moved to the Berkshires in 1999 from New York City where they had lived all their lives. In New York they lived in four of the five boroughs through the years. They were born and brought up in Brooklyn, moving to Queens when they married in 1966. In 1970 they bought their home on a hilltop in Staten Island overlooking Silver Lake and New Jersey. In 1970, their son, Mark was born and in 1972 their daughter Lisa completed the family. Gloria and Len lived in the same house in Staten Island for 28 years, raising their children there as they pursued their careers.

Len had a 35 year career in the computer communications field. He held many titles and performed many functions in the field culminating with the title of Officer in charge of voice and data communications for the Federal Reserve Bank of NY. Since coming to Applegate Len has become active in the local Rotary club which aids many charitable organizations and individuals in need in the local area. He is also a woodworker and has built many items in and around the inn, including the pool shed, the deck on the addition and the armoire in room 7.

Gloria had a 30 year career in education and psychotherapy. In 1972, she started a Montessori School on Staten Island for nursery school aged children which she ran for 28 years expanding it to take children from toddlers through the fifth grade. While directing the school, Gloria went back to college to get her 2nd masters degree in social work. She had a small family therapy practice on Staten Island. The inn is the perfect place for Gloria since she loves to cook and garden and practice yoga. She volunteers as a tutor for the Berkshire Literacy Network. She is also on the board of the Lee Chamber of Commerce and its former president.

Both of their children are married and live in the NYC area. They have 5 grandchildren.
