Keep scrolling to see all the ways to enjoy the magical winter wonderland that is the Berkshires!
A Winter Getaway to Warm Your Heart
As winter in the Berkshires sets in, it can get down right nippy outside. When you book your stay at our romantic Inn, make sure you choose a room with a working fireplace or Jacuzzi tub to keep you toasty while you gaze out at the snow covered grounds. If not, then our cozy wood burning fireplace in our large living room is always available to warm you up. Or just get that warm feeling inside as you take in all of the beautiful lights, colors, and holiday decorations so thoughtfully placed around our country estate as you enjoy complimentary cognac, cordials, plus our special treat this time of year, homemade eggnog! We even have exceptional holiday entertainment and seasonal goodies lined up for Friday and Saturday evenings at our Inn.
Dazzling Holiday Decorations
The gorgeous decorations around our Inn are enough to get anyone into the holiday spirit. But if you would like to see a few more, you should take the Stockbridge Holiday House Tour, which we’re proud to be a part of! This popular event takes place on Saturday, December 1st from 11:00am to 4:00pm. You’ll get to peek inside some of the area’s most beautiful homes on your own schedule. In addition to our beautiful Inn, other properties featured include Naumkeag, Whitney House, Windermere, Applegate Inn, National Shrine of the Divine Mercy and High Lawn Farm Museum. Tickets are just $20 per person. During this festive weekend, other classic Christmas events include a sing-along, caroling, a luminaria walk, a holiday concert and a Main Street festival. You literally can’t get any more “Norman Rockwell” than this!
Get a Head Start on Holiday Shopping
Let’s face it. Clicking “Buy Now” on the computer is an easy way to shop, but it doesn’t even compare to the joy you feel when you come across that perfect item that you didn’t even know you were looking for! Give a gift with a story behind it from one of our small town boutiques, hardware stores or antique shops. If you’re looking for a bargain, visit the Premium Outlets in Lee, with over 60 upscale and designer stores in a quaint English style setting. They are just 5 minutes away from the Inn, and we can even provide you with a VIP shopping pass. Though if you’re a serious shopper, you may want to take advantage of our Shop ’til You Drop package!
Trees, Trees and More Trees!
The beautiful landscape is part of what makes the Berkshires such a lovely place to visit. Sometimes it feels like the trees go on forever. If you would like an up-close view of them, embark on a downhill or cross country skiing excursion – there are several great places within minutes from the Inn. Or while you’re here, you can participate in the bucolic holiday tradition of cutting down your own Christmas tree. There are several tree farms in the area, so why not take one home for the holidays to remind you of your visit? The two closest ones to us are Crane Hill Tree Farm and Seekonk Tree Farm. For a fun and fanciful interaction with trees, we recommend that you visit the Berkshire Museum to attend the Festival of Trees After Dark. You’ll have so much fun at this indoor exhibit as you try to guess the song title that matches each tree’s unique décor. Lastly, if you’re in town on December 3rd, join in on the fun at the Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony at Lilac Park to officially kick off the holiday season.
Make Devonfield Inn Your Home for the Holidays
Make the most of this season, and carve out some special time together before you are booked with holiday parties and family gatherings.

We can’t wait to welcome you to our idyllic country Inn this winter where our luxurious accommodations, full gourmet breakfast and special holiday treats will ensure that you’ll have a warm and wonderful time. We’ll keep the fire hot and the eggnog cold as we await your arrival at our luxury Inn in the Berkshires.Book Now
