February 28th, 2017 by Janet Wolf

Devonfield Inn, a Berkshire country estate inn for sale is a thriving 11 guest room Bed and Breakfast on 30+ acres of forest, meadowlands, birch trees and 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 three 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 .

Another added feature is the large basement with living space for staff. Plenty of storage/work space in this clean and dry area.

A classic antique barn is located on the grounds. Currently it is used for storage but could be remodeled to accommodate weddings and events. It’s perfectly set to take advantage of the views of the surrounding Berkshire Hills.

A separate house included in the offering is steps away from the Inn and is offered for owner’s quarters, or as a leased property. 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.

The town of Lee is located in the heart of the Berkshire Hills and the Inn is conveniently located near the heart of the village. Only 2 hour’s drive from Boston and 2 1/2 hours from New York City, the location could not be more central. Travelling from Boston and other points east, Lee is 2 minutes from the Mass Turnpike, I-90. From New York City and New Jersey, the Berkshire section of the NY Thruway will take you to the Mass Turnpike. From Connecticut take I-91 to the Mass Turnpike. Serviced by both the Hartford and Albany airports, Devonfield Inn is less than an hour away. All roads lead to the Berkshires!

Devonfield Inn is a well- established profitable operation but one that can continue to grow under new stewardship. The potential audience and markets available to tap into is among the most desirable anywhere in the country! With new owners engaging in more aggressive marketing initiatives, packaging and special events, the potential is ripe to gather a larger piece of this population.
