Garden Gables Inn is the perfect destination for couples and small group events - anniversary or birthday, friends getaway or family celebration*. We no longer host wedding ceremonies, but we do provide a wonderful lodging option for groups having weddings in and around Lenox.
We offer 15 guest rooms and can design a full meal package to make your stay a wonderful experience. For small groups up to 6 people, the Hilltop Orchards Suite 12 is a great, affordable choice. With two bedrooms (one queen, one with two twins) and a queen-size pullout sofa in the separate living room, this suite provides an intimate setting for a great time. Our room rate covers 1-2 guests; additional guests (from 3-6) can be added at only $60/night. Slightly larger groups can enjoy a larger, yet still very private space, by combining both the Furnace Brook Winery Suite 10 and Hilltop Orchards Suite 12. These rooms are both housed in the Eladesor Cottage, which has its own entrance just a few steps from the Main House. When these rooms are combined, they can sleep up to 9 people. In addition, these rooms both have cozy sitting areas with a fireplace and a private outdoor space. Another good choice for groups of up to four couples are the Cottage Rooms 16-19.
For larger groups, or situations where group events are planned to be hosted at the Inn, you will need to rent the entire Inn for a minimum of a 2-night stay. We are able to host events of this kind from November through mid-June, and occasionally also in September.
Both onsite and nearby, the Garden Gables Inn offers many possibilities for group and individual enjoyment. During leisure time, enjoy gathering in the Library, which offers a variety of books, games and puzzles that your group can enjoy, and comfortable seating for a quiet discussion or reading a book. Smaller groups can watch tv or enjoy a movie from our DVD collection on the Sherry Room large screen tv. Outdoors, relax on our patios and grounds. Expert massage and facial treatments are available from licensed professionals in our two, dedicated spa rooms. Take a walk into historic Lenox Village, a short five-minutes from the Inn. There you will discover local shops, art galleries and a wide variety of local restaurants. Just 15 minutes away, visit our own JMash Cidery at Hilltop Orchards for free cider and wine tasting at the first farm winery established in the Berkshires - now over 20 years! Enjoy fresh baked goods and apple picking in season. Or stretch your legs on 10K of professionally-designed cross country trails - snowshoeing and hiking in season. Trail passes are free for Inn guests, and equipment rental and lessons/trail guides are available onsite. And, the Berkshires has a wealth of active pursuits, historic and cultural sites and live performances available, year-round. For more ideas, click here to visit our Recreation page.
