Let the Devonfield be Your Escape- Musing from Innkeepers

DevonfieldGenerations X & Y (which follow us Baby Boomers and Tweeners (AGH!)) are discovering that a visit to Devonfield isn’t a trip to Grandma’s house. Yes, there are homemade chocolate chip cookies, candy dishes, a Steinway and polished antiques; but there are also flat screen TVs in every room (some suites), WiFi, luxury linens, modern baths – some with whirlpool tubs, seven wood burning fireplaces, a heated swimming pool, tennis court and 29 acres to explore on snowshoes in the winter or on a summer/fall stroll… And of course there is a delicious and bountiful candle-lit breakfasts every morning too!

Today, social media makes it is easy to get a real sense of what Devonfield and the Berkshires are all about just by checking with Trip Advisor and Facebook. We are so proud of what others are recognizing about us! At Devonfield, we are committed to creating an environment that blends the grace of the old world with the new world traveler’s savvy expectations. The Inn has been lovingly and respectfully modernized. Devonfield is an elegant English-Style country estate which overlooks a grand meadow shaded by graceful birch trees, with the rolling tapestry of the Berkshire Hills beyond. It is a sanctuary for abundant wildlife and birds. It’s a mile above Lee’s Main Street, with its many shops and restaurants, and close to all of the Berkshire’s must-see cultural attractions.

For the active adventurer, horseback riding, ballooning, downhill and cross-country skiing are all within minutes of the estate. Greenock Golf Club is down the road. Hiking, biking, archery, fishing and kayaking are all readily available on or near our property. While our Baby Boomers and Tweeners have discovered the Berkshire’s balance of nature and culture, Generations X & Y are taking it to the next level with their zeal for outdoor adventure, romance and inventive local farm to table fare… Only two and a half hours from Manhattan, and two hours from Boston, come see why the Berkshires just keep getting better and better!
