Surrounded by the history of the Berkshires

The Federal House Inn is a wonderful place to relax while enjoying the many wonderful options that make the Berkshires a little taste of heaven.  Built in 1824 by Thomas O. Hurlbut as his family residence, this gracious brick beauty with gorgeous wood floors and large windows now invites you to admire the scenery and surroundings.  The Federal House Inn became a bed and breakfast in 1950 when Howard Washburn undertook a loving restoration of the property.  He named it the Federal House Inn to honor his favorite style of furniture.  We also are excited to honor the paper mill (which still stands across the way) with a nod to industrial style.
