We got a room with a wood burning fireplace and 2 person tub - didn't use the tub but fireplace was great. It's nice having the smell and ambiance of a wood burning fireplace. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was good with omelets cooked to order. Room had Keurig, but no creamers - we were close to lobby that had creamers and coffee though. Afternoon had cold cider and donuts too. Had a nice indoor pool and hot tub - but we didn't use
Nice room, although the 'mountain view' was partially obscured by trees and a building. Good location, quiet, handy for shops, restaurants and local attractions such as Shaker Village and Mount Greylock. Reception staff (especially George) were exceptionally helpful. Note that their credit card machine has no chip reader so if your magnetic strip is worn out and doesn't work your card won't be accepted!
