We stayed at the SMI the second half of 4th of July week/end while attending the Berkshire Mega GeoBash geocaching event at Bosquet Mountain. We were looking for a place within an easy ride to the event as well as Jacob's Pillow and the other area venues. We stayed in the Greylock Suite which is located on the 2nd floor in the back of the building. It is a spacious 1 bedroom suite with a full kitchen and living room. A covered balcony enveloped in lush greenery is adjacent to the living room. Travelers wanting to book this suite should note that the bedroom faces East and thus you will be greeted by the sunrise. Bring your eye masks if you want to sleep past the crack of dawn. We adjourned to the living room sofas at sunrise to catch a few more zzz's.
The innkeepers, Bob and Mary, are unobtrusive, a plus for us since we like the hominess of a b&b but the anonymity of a hotel. The innkeepers have provided in-room information to answer your questions before they arise with little framed notes which were much appreciated. They have anticipated their guest's needs making available bug spray, a sewing kit, and toiletries. Being greeted by fresh flowers and wine on arrival were a nice touch after the drive.
We found the room meticulously clean and the essentials for a continental breakfast prepared by a local gourmet caterer. Although special requests are accommodated by the innkeepers, our timing was off to make our requests due to our own schedule. My husband was greatly appreciative when Bob graciously provided a canister of ice tea because of his inability to drink the orange juice provided for breakfast.
We recommend SMI for a laid back Berkshire vacation.
