Relaxing and Full of Character
Posted by christinaelyse from White Plains, New York on 11/27/2006
I spent 2 relaxing evenings at the Devonfield. My reservations were made last minute and accepted (quite nicely despite my original 6 am phone call!) by the innkeepers. Able to spend 2 evenings at this quiet inn was very restful. In each room I stayed I had my own fireplace, bathtub, and view of the 20+ acre property. Restaurant recommendations are good (try Chez Nous) and the natural beauty of the hills are worth the nice autumn drive.

SOO many special touches
Posted by Orlee from Rochester on 09/04/2006
We stayed here for two nights. It was our wedding anniversary and the owners left a single red rose and small bottle of champagne with glasses and a card. What a lovely touch and completely surprising. The bedding is devine. Chocolates each evening in the room, cookies and a pantry available, bottled water. They have thought of many special touches.

Delightful Devonfield's
Posted by Sue & Bobby from Baltimore, Md. on 04/30/2006
We spent a memorable 3 nights at Devonfield feeling pampered and special by the new innkeepers, Ronnie and Bruce. The facility was flawless and immaculate while the personnel were friendly, accommodating and professional. The weekend was a sheer delight from the plentiful and delicious breakfasts to the beautiful rooms with gorgeous views and cozy,warm fireplaces.
The area has lots to offer as well, from the Rockwell Museaum to antique shopping and a variety of dining choices. We can not wait to book our next visit and spend time during the fall and winter seasons in the Berkshires at Devonfield's.
Thank you Ronnie and Bruce- you made our trip a true delight !!

Devonfield is divine!
Posted by Dennis from New Jersey on 02/21/2006

From the moment we stepped in to this elegant English country inn, we felt at home. The innkeepers were welcoming and warm. Our room was spectacular- working fire place and a view out in to the snow covered meadow and mountains beyond. The home is filled with beautiful antiques, yet is thoughtfully appointed with all modern amenities. Breakfast was delicious- we began with granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, and juice and then enjoyed delectable apple french toast. After a long day of skiing, we returned to a roaring fire place in the living room where we sat and chatted with fellow guests. We only wished we could have stayed longer! We will definitely return to this special gem and recommend it wholeheartedly to others.

Home Away From Home

Posted by Judy  from Medfield, MA on 07/25/2005
We just returned from our annual 3 day weekend to attend BSO concerts at Tanglewood. Each year we try a different inn or B&B in the area. This year it was Devonfield. The experience was quite unlike any other inn that we have stayed at in the Berkshires. I felt like I was staying in a private vacation home and not a commercial establishment. The owners have anticipated your every need: 24 hour access to complimentary cookies, coffee, and tea; daily complimentary bottled water and chocolates in the room; heated swimming pool surrounded by flower garden and a supply of plump beach towels; spacious and clean rooms with nice furnishings; a separate TV room stocked with videos; and the list goes on. Although the inn was fully booked, there are enough common spaces for you to enjoy a spot in private if you choose.

The ONLY place to stay
Posted by Amy  from Somerville, MA on 02/19/2004
I also booked Devonfield based on the comments in this section. I am happy to report that all of the comments are accurate and very honest. There are a multitude of inns in the Berkshires but this is the ONLY place to stay. I spent two nights in the John Lloyd room during President's Day wknd and have no negative comments. I tried to be picky, but there is nothing wrong with this beautiful place. The inn is charming and comfortable with a perfect location in Lee (central so driving between towns is easy). The breakfast was very generous (cereal, fruit, yogurt, muffins, hot entree)and the quality was as good as the quantity. The innkeepers (Jim and Pam) are like old friends and the people working with them are just as nice. Unlike many inns where the innkeepers are particularly impressed with themselves, there is no pretentiousness at Devonfield. This inn is a true gem in an idyllic setting. I look forward to a return visit!

Just excellent. We looked up the Fodor rants and raves and booked this on the basis of what has been said here and it is all true. We were the only ones staying in the lull just after the Thanksgiving rush so had a chance to look at every room and the only difference is the size and whether they have a (real)fireplace. They are all delightful. The owners are genuinely interested in their guests and any individual needs.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast!

Posted by Lisa from New Jersey on 11/25/2003
This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast! After spending Thanksgiving with family in Boston we decided to stop in the Berkshires on the way back to NY for an evening alone. The Davonfield was exactly what we were looking for. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful and the house is beautifully decorated! We stayed in one of the smaller rooms, the Allison, it was warm and cozy with a private bath. The brandy and chocolates were a delightful treat before bed! I would highly recommend a visit.

The New England you're looking for is right here
Posted by Clare from London on 10/12/2003
Although we've travelled all over New England on vacation over the last few years, we keep on returning to Devonfield. Why? Because staying there feels less like being a tourist an outsider and more like visiting friends who just happen to have a beautiful house. It's a chance to look behind the chilly, frilly facade so many 'inns' present, and experience the New England we're all trying to find - warm, tasteful,and relaxing. Jim and Pam, the innkeepers, are proper locals, rather than New Yorkers trying to create an image. Being born and bred in this small town means there's very little they don't know about the area, and they seem genuinely happy to share it with their guests. The best word for the house itself is 'gracious' - elegant, like a well-polished, beautiful old piece of furniture. And it's one of the few places we've stayed where you feel really comfortable using the common areas, not just your own room. The place seems to draw you in, encouraging sociability and the chance to enjoy a little conversation with your fellow travellers. You get a proper home-cooked New England breakfast too, free from the curse of over-complication that seems to be running riot everywhere else; fresh fruit salad, muffins and a hot dish. I can particularly recommend the oven-baked peach pancakes. We've stayed in plenty of places that promise much and deliver little; so I'm happy to recommend this one wholeheartedly, both for the charm of the surroundings and the warmth of the welcome.
