Circa 1778. Known as “The Quintessential Berkshire Bed and Breakfast Inn,” this dignified historic country home is located near Stockbridge and Lenox in the town of Lee, Massachusetts. After a day of skiing relax in front of the impressive stone hearth with a beehive oven. Year-round accommodations at the Jonathan Foote 1778 House B&B are accented with artwork, antiques and reproductions. Cheery guest bedrooms and spacious suites feature air-conditioned comfort, colorful quilts and chocolates. Two rooms boast fireplaces. Enjoy breakfast in the parlor or on the large covered porch. Early coffee and afternoon treats are also served. Hike with llamas at nearby October Mountain State Forest, swim at local Laurel Lake Beach, and play golf at Greenock Country Club. From Tanglewood to outlet malls to Norman Rockwell there is much to see and do in the Berkshires.

A Jewell in the Berkshires

This B&B is both beautiful and historic as well as relaxed. A large property on a quiet road out of town, Foote house is convenient to the MassPike and all Berkshire destinations. Hosts are friendly and happy to share the history of the house, which is furnished with many interesting antiques. A roaring fire in the old walk-in fireplace was inviting.
