Tanglewood Bed and Breakfast

Berkshires Bed & Breakfast

The Fall Season Foliage:
Autumn in the Berkshires is a dazzling kaleidoscope. Of course, the foliage is the focus of this vibrant season, to enjoy while toodling along the back roads, hiking, cycling, picnicking, apple-picking, golfing, exploring historic homes such as The Mount, Naumkeag, Chesterwood or Hancock Shaker Village. After a day in the crisp fall air, come warm up by the fire with a steaming mug of fresh hot cider at our romantic Berkshires Bed and Breakfast.

FORECAST: NO SNOW SPECIAL!

hammock2All of us are still recuperating from the longest and snowiest winter in recent history. Our winter weary souls need some TLC. And Birchwood Inn has some TLC for you!

Take a hike in neighboring Kennedy Park. Be awed by Bash Bish Falls. Leisurely stroll through Lenox and the Berkshires’ many towns and hamlets. Explore The Mount, The Norman Rockwell Museum, the newly expanded Clark Art Institute. Take a swim in one of the many nearby lakes. Enjoy a play. Relax and recharge your batteries in a rocker on our spacious and breezy front porch with a good read. Or nap in the hammock in our leafy garden. Savor award-winning breakfasts and indulge in decadent afternoon tea.

Stay two nights or more between May 19 and June 17 and we’ll save you 15% — that’s 15% off low season rates!

Just mention the NO SNOW SPECIAL when making your reservation online or by phone. Not valid with third-party gift certificates nor for reservations already processed.
