Berkshire Country Estate Inn for Sale
Premier Bed & Breakfast in the heart of the Berkshires
A new price and an updated listing! The Devonfield Inn, a Berkshire country estate inn for sale is a thriving 10 guest room Bed and Breakfast on 4+ acres of manicured lawns and gardens. The Inn is located in the western part of Massachusetts, the Berkshire Mountains, in the town of Lee. The Berkshires became a prime destination for the wealthy to build their grand homes called Berkshire ‘cottages’ in the Gilded Age. The area became a resort destination for vacationers, artist’s retreats, and recreational enthusiasts. These spectacular homes have been preserved and maintained as residences, museums and country inns like the Devonfield Inn. Today, “The Hills” are still alive with the same creative enthusiasm as was present in the early days of its development.
The property includes an 8,000+ sq. ft. updated main house built in the early 1800’s in the style of an English country estate. There are 10 guest rooms and suites on two floors with private modern baths, luxury amenities and traditional furnishings in the original building. A heated swimming pool and tennis court enhance the property. A cottage set by the pool is a stand-alone unit with open great room/kitchen, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fireplace, with one bedroom and one bath. It is a wonderful choice for guests who want a separate private getaway.
The foyer entrance with a sweeping staircase is lovely and welcoming. An innkeeper’s office is conveniently located just off this entrance. Many detailed original architectural features greet guests upon their arrival. Views of the estate’s pastoral grounds can be viewed from many rooms. The patio surrounding the pool is a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the estate’s grandeur.
Owner’s Quarters are now the entire and spacious Penthouse Suite on the third floor of the inn. Multiple rooms, views, closets galore and a convenient escape to your own oasis in the Berkshires!
Another added feature is the large basement with possible living space for staff. Plenty of storage/work space in this clean and dry area.
A separate house, not included in the offering, is steps away from the Inn and is offered for potential owner’s quarters, or as a leased property as an additional purchase. This charming house includes 3 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths, open living room, with full kitchen and dining area. Three (3) fireplaces complete the package in the living room, master bedroom, and den. There is a side patio with direct access from the house. There are an adjacent 22+/- open acres abutting the inn that too can be added to the offering if desired.
