About The Inn

 

The Inn at Richmond is comfortable Bed & Breakfast, set in a pre-Revolutionary War colonial home that has been carefully renovated to retain its historic architectural charm.  

 

The Main House was constructed between 1774 and 1776.  The land upon which The Inn is situated was a land grant from King George III of Great Britain.   While all of our accommodations feature modern amenities some of our window and door hardware in common areas was imported from France circa 1820.

 

Time spent at The Inn allows visitors the opportunity to enjoy the quiet beauty of The Berkshires while taking advantage of our proximity to the rich cultural and outdoor offerings of the area. With just a 12-minute drive to Lenox and Pittsfield, our guests can stay away from the bustle of everyday living but remain close to  Tanglewood, The Barrington Stage, Shakespeare and Company, The Colonial Theater, plus fabulous area restaurants, world-class museums, and shopping which ranges from variety to vogue.

 

Our Main House offers six guest rooms, all with private baths and each uniquely decorated with hardwood floors, and comfortable surroundings.  Two suites include fireplaces which are decorated with lights.  Except for The Inn's working-kitchen, open flames are not allowed in the Main Building.  This includes candles and incenses as well.

 

A richly paneled Library with a decoratively lit fireplace; a bright, cozy Dining Room; a comfortable Parlor and guest favorite Garden Room, with magnificent views of the Terrace, pastures and rolling hills are common areas found in the first floor of the Main House.


The Inn also offers four cottages, three with fully equipped kitchens, that are ideal for accommodating longer visits and families.  Each cottage includes a sleep sofa.

 

The Shaker Barn which houses the Berkshire Equestrian Center was moved onto the property in the 1930s from a Shaker Community which is now a living history museum – Hancock Shaker Village just 2.5 miles away.

 

For decades the property was known as Green Meads Farm.  The Morse family was well known for their Morgan horses and their sales drew people from far and wide.  Today, a portion of Green Meads remains under grandson, Jeff Morse and his wife Jen, as a well respected carriage horse and driver training center.

Let The Inn be your “home” while exploring The Berkshires.

We look forward to hosting your visit or event.
