Come visit the Berkshires…
We recently had a stay in Lenox, Massachusetts at the adorable 33 Main — a quaint but luxurious New England-style bed and breakfast where all the lovely interiors are shoppable!
Where is Lenox, Massachusetts? It’s a small, picturesque town in the Berkshires — a rural region with villages and towns in the mountains of Western Massachusetts, just 2 1/2 hours from Boston + New York City. It’s a perfect escape for the city dweller! We found many New Yorkers visiting when we were there.
Lenox is filled with farm-to-table restaurants and artists, history + culture and the Berkshires are home to a thriving cultural scene too, including Tanglewood (summer home of the Boston Symphony), their very own film festival and even a contemporary art museum (we didn’t get a chance to visit but would love to next time).
About the Inn…
Annie Selke, literally an interior design mogul, is the owner/designer of 33 Main, as well as being a Lenox resident. The Inn is fitted with her own line of Pine Cone Hill bedding and Dash & Albert rugs (named after her former two pups). Along with her pretty, colonial-style decor, other designers include mattresses from Hastens (which start at $4300 + up to $150,000!) and Ralph Lauren wallpaper.
Annie says of the Inn: “I strive to make every day (and hotel night) as uplifting as possible and that means being inspired by what surrounds you. An exquisitely made bed, a lovely bathroom with plush towels and a comfy robe and a yummy breakfast in a beautiful place go a long way toward having an uplifting day!”
The second you set foot inside the Inn, it feels charming and just like a storybook with its pastel interior, fresh pink tulips and the inn keeper Becca welcoming you whilst baking sweet cookies in the kitchen.

Weston + Fira loved running around (plenty of yard space and there’s a large grassy block across the street) and chilling out on the cozy doggie beds. We were snuggled up in our robes in the Aster room, which is one of two dog-friendly rooms at the Inn (the other one is Hollingsworth).
Pet fee is $50 per pet/per night, all sizes + well-behaved pets welcomed with doggie cookies.
The sheets, pillows, dog beds, robes, shampoos + lotions are all shoppable at the Annie Selke pop-up across the street. I definitely recommend taking a peek! I ended up with the coolest Moroccan-inspired rug with fringe, a fluffy stuffed Sloth toy (it was too cute to pass up) and those soft fleece robes.
One of the highlights of our stay was having a homemade three-course breakfast every morning in the beautiful dining room. Breakfast changes everyday; during our stay, it consisted of fresh seasonal fruit, homemade breads, baked eggs wrapped in prosciutto + asparagus, egg + cheese puff pastry + bacon.
See you soon, Berkshires…
We’re already planning a visit back to Lenox as the travel wasn’t bad at all! Only a 2.5 hour drive from NYC. The air was crisp and it was just the right spot to take in some natural beauty, American culture and soak away all the daily stress.
