    My husband and I were thrilled with our stay at the Wainwright Inn!

    Marja and Robert are very welcoming, personable and helpful. The inn is beautifully decorated in a historic yet artistic style, and was very clean. Breakfast was delicious!

    We will definitely make it a regular part of any trip to western MA.

    My wonderful hubby surprised me for my birthday with a quick jaunt to Great B and another wonderful night at our favorite B&B, the Wainwright Inn. Charming, romantic, historical, all the much needed words to ensure a memorable stay exude at Marja and Robert Tepper's charming Inn which is as close as one can get to the center of town. Our Dutch breakfast was delish and is enough to keep us coming back time and again. And their soap smells really good too.

    My wife and I just returned from a marvelous four nights in the Berkshire Wing room at the Wainwright.  We were extremely comfortable and enjoyed the perfect location within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of Great Barrington.  Delicious, well-rounded breakfasts (homemade baked goods, fruit, and then a "main dish" like an omelette, scrambled eggs, french toast or waffle) always got our days off to a good start, and port and sherry were available in the front room (in beautiful antique glasses!) for a night cap.  Marja is a perfect innkeeper, friendly and knowledgeable but never intrusive.   A note to my fellow tea snobs - there's an excellent array of teas available with breakfast, from hefty Irish Breakfast and London Cuppa blends to a more delicate Earl Grey and also herbal and green varieties.  Also, a note to my fellow internet addicts -  the wifi signal is strong and steady even on the third floor.  We look forward to visiting again in future.

    Wainwright Inn is a plush, upscale B&B, with gourmet breakfasts and a wonderful welcoming vibe. My husband and I stayed in the Edison Room and loved it.  The bed was extremely comfortable and the room and bathroom were both a good size.  The whole place is in immaculate shape. The same cannot be said for some of the other historic B&B's where we've stayed. Highly recommend this as a place to stay when you're in the Berkshires.

    Yet another fantastic trip to Great Barrington!  We only had a few days but packed as much relaxation and sightseeing in as possible.  As always, Marja, Robert & Daryl were amazing hosts!  We are already planning our next trip back!

    The Wainwright Inn has become one of my favorite places on earth. Robert, Marja and Darryl always welcome us in as part of the family and immediately there is warmth and laughter. As always the breakfasts were phenomenal.

    Lisa and I just spent Labor Day weekend there and it was just what the doctor ordered. We spent hours on the porch reading, playing cribbage and watching the classic cars drive by. We explored the area, ate great food, picked up real estate brochures and immersed ourselves in the Berkshires. On Sunday night a group of the guests got together with Robert, Marja and Darryl and we hung out on the porch eating and drinking and laughing.

    We did not want to leave but we are now home relaxed, re-charged and ready to face the working world again.

    Thank you Wainwright Inn. We are already planning our next trip!

    Make the Wainwright Inn first on your list of places to stay in the Berkshires.

    The Wainwright Inn is beautiful, the rooms are charming, and the innkeepers are delightful. A different breakfast (and it's always fresh and delicious) is available every morning. Enjoy sherry and tea in the afternoon and a glass of port before turning in for the evening.  We loved our stay at the Wainwright Inn.

    Conveniently located and close to Tanglewood one may easily explore the Berkshires from the Wainwright Inn's location in Great Barrington.

    My family and I stayed at the Wainwright Inn for the last two nights and we all agreed that it was wonderful! We are so glad that we didn't stay at some hotel without personality or character. The building is beautiful and I am already missing the adorable and spacious suite I shared with my parents and sister.

    The Innkeeper, Marja, and her husband take their roles to heart, and we were welcomed openly! Marja even took extra pains to create delicious vegan alternatives to the breakfasts that my omnivorous family enjoyed. I am really accustomed to people making light of my vegan diet and just expecting me to cope with less, but she went the extra mile with tofu scramble, potatoes, waffles, cakes, and even soymilk for my tea!

    My mother is already planning on getting the ladies in her book club to head out to the Wainwright Inn and I know that I will recommend it to anyone looking for a little haven in the Berkshires!

    The Wainwright Inn is, quite simply, the roomiest, friendliest, and quietest B&B we have stayed at in years. I agree with everything that's been written here about the soaps, the sherry, the teas, the port, the innkeepers, the delicious breakfast, the choice location, the WiFi, the gardens, and the overall warmth and charm of the place. Marja and Robert are truly kind-hearted, generous people (as noted in almost all of the other reviews) so I will focus on a few of our own revelations about staying at the Wainwright.

    First, Google Maps will send you to the corner of Route 7 and South Street where you will not find the Wainwright. (There are two large funeral homes there instead.) Do not despair. Turn your car around and head south on Route 7 two more blocks (past the Dunkin Donuts). The Wainwright is at the corner of Route 7 and Pope Street with plenty of parking around back.

    Next, the innkeepers have no problem accommodating guests with food allergies. Just be sure to mention something before you arrive. Our breakfast included a smoothie course in between the juice-and-warm-apple-cake course (with 6 juices to choose from) and the main dish (ours was waffles with sautéed apples and bacon). The smoothie packed a punch with five fruits plus carrots and kale!

    Also, and this is for early risers out there (like us). There is a Keurig coffee maker in the kitchen and K-cups that Marja fills with her own delicious ground coffee. So if you need a cup at 7 a.m., go for it! There's fresh milk in the 'fridge. And have another cup if you like. We had our coffee in our room and even went for a little walk before breakfast, which is served between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.

    Lastly, the Wainwright oozes with history. When you look at the brick structure from the outside and imagine it without the porch and without the addition on the back and without some of the Victorian touches here and there, you see a building that truly dates back to the 1760s. The Wainwright had a front-row seat to history when General Henry Knox and his men defied all odds by transporting 60 tons of cannons by oxen from Fort Ticonderoga to Boston during in the winter of 1775-76. The column went right by the Wainwright, which was a tavern back then, and I had no problem picturing Colonists in the front drawing room enjoying a flagon or two of ale.

    The Wainwright Inn is such a wonderful place to stay while in the Berkshires. The innkeepers are so nice and accommodating, and you feel right at home. They are super friendly, have great information, and know the area very well. The breakfasts are delicious, creative and plentiful, as are the snacks left out during the day. The rooms are clean and stocked with everything you need to be comfortable. The location is superb, walking distance from downtown Great Barrington, plus you are so close to Tanglewood and all the other gorgeous Berkshire towns. The Wainwright is the place to stay when in the Berkshires!
