Kemble Inn - Berkshires Gay Bed & Breakfast

A casually luxurious boutique hotel set in an historic mansion and tastefully decorated with Ralph Lauren contemporary design, the Kemble Inn has been under gay-ownership since 2010. We are changing the scene in Lenox and the Berkshires with choice lodging, dining, and entertainment options for year-round visitors. We regularly update and renovate we prepare for an ultimate re-branding of the product to be known as The Frederick.

In the meantime, though, we offer quality services and comfort-oriented experiences in the world-class destination of Lenox, Massachusetts, which is easily reachable from the Boston and New York areas either by a short drive or by public transportation.

From our veranda, patio, and dining room guests can enjoy an every-day all-season panoramic view of the Berkshire Hills on Western Massachusetts. On summer evenings when fireworks are light the sky after a Tanglewood concert we have the ultimate view looking down the hill to the Stockbridge Bowl where they take place.

Gay Friendly Berkshires, Massachusetts Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, and Vacation Rentals

Kemble Inn - Lenox, MassachusettsOriginally built in 1881 by President Chester Arthur’s Secretary of State, Frederick T. Frelinghuysen, the Kemble Inn has since graced the town of Lenox, MA with its stately grandeur. A welcoming foyer and sweeping staircase with its Palladian window are the testament to the elegance and opulence of a bygone era – but for you to enjoy!

At the turn of the 19th century Berkshires was a haven for the wealthiest of Americans. Here, they built their splendid mansions, “The Berkshire Cottages”, in the richness of styles that reflected the taste and aspirations of their owners. An example of this wealth of expression is Ventfort Hall and just across the street The Kemble Inn. Both were designed by renowned architects of the time, Arthur Rotch and George Tilden, but in styles so vastly different – that the two do not seem of the same era.

Located on the hill top of two elevated acres; Kemble Inn offers open views of the splendid Berkshire Mountains. This oasis of green space in the center of Lenox is equally suited for your next personal getaway, as it is for weddings, anniversaries, reunions, corporate meetings and special events.
