Devonfield
Lee, Mass.

It's just a short drive to see the rest of the Berkshires, but that would mean you'd have to leave the inn's inviting living room and cozy fire, relaxing swimming pool, waiting tennis court, and sweeping views of meadows and mountains. The original Devonfield, built by a Revolutionary War veteran, was completely rebuilt in 1928; during the summer of 1942 it was the residence of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, her daughter, Princess Juliana, and her granddaughters. Guest rooms are comfortable but not lavish, light and airy, and traditionally furnished; many have floral wall coverings and hardwood floors with area rugs. The Berkshire Mountains offer exceptional cultural options, especially in summer, ranging from the legendary concerts of the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood in Lenox to mass moca in North Adams to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. There are historic sites like Edith Wharton's home, the Mount; the Hancock Shaker Village; and the Stockbridge estate of sculptor Daniel Chester French (he did the Lincoln Memorial). Area shopping ranges from high-quality craft stores to outlet malls.
