My boyfriend and I booked a two night stay with Thornewood Inn with the Ski & Stay deal linked with Ski Butternut. We could have not asked for a better experience. We arrived a little late but David and Terry were very understanding and welcoming. After settling in we went down to the bar and enjoyed some great wine and...

We recently enjoyed our night at the Thornwood. The innkeeping couple does it all- books you a room, mixes your drinks, serves you dinner, and even cleans up! We were comfortable enough to invite family to meet us for a tasty dinner at their restaurant. That was a highlight of our trip! It seems like they could use a bit...

I was here for only one night recently, but wish I had booked at least two. The inn is such a pleasant place. The innkeepers/owners welcomed me warmly and exude a down-to-earth ness and genuine interest that is so refreshing given the plethora of classy inns and standard cordiality found elsewhere. The common rooms are filled with character and memorabilia,...

Stayed here for two nights in the height of Berkshire tourist season. Location great, and we were looking forward to enjoying a brief stay in a grand mansion-which is how it's always looked from the road. Inside it felt tired and fussy, and I just never felt comfortable or relaxed. The pool was full of leaves, and someone had left...

This inn has been around for a long time and is in a great location for visiting the Berkshires. The property is located directly on Rte. 7. The inn is well kept and has plenty of space to relax, read, etc. It is not, however, in a secluded spot, if that is what you would expect from a country inn....

We are sorry to hear that you had a less than exceptional breakfast experience. We are in fact looking into re-designing that area and will take all of your comments into consideration. All of our guests are welcome to sit in the dinner dining area and take their breakfast there or most anywhere as they please. We have the breakfast...

We spent one night and met some very friendly and interesting travelers who also stayed at the Thornewood Inn. One of them helped us to get a restaurant reservation in Saratoga on the 23rd because she knew the owner. It was our 50th anniversary, everything was booked up, and she did it because she is thoughtful and nice! We were...

Beautiful inn, gracious hosts, central to lots of Berkshires attractions. We biked the Ashiwillticook trail in Lanesboro, had ice cream -coconut lemongrass and lots of other unique flavors-at SoCo in downtown GB, came back to the inn and relaxed in the lovely pool and garden area. Great dinner at Bizen, slept in the comfy 4 poster bed(AC was appreciated ),...

Disappointed in this inn for various reasons. (1) Inn is located right off a busy road and the noise of the cars are constant, no matter how far back your room is (2) Hotel is dated and as such looks dirty. No matter how much they clean, old grout looks like the corners of the bathroom haven't been cleaned in...

The roads are very busy at the time Tanglewood ends its concert, but quiet down considerably during the night. The floor in this room is the original "chicken wire tile" and we believe adds to the charm of the room. We were doing a llttle painting in one of the main rooms, and although we did not smell it, perhaps...
