B&B Friday! (2/20/10)

Happy Friday, everyone ♥
Before I start, I'd just like to know if anyone received an alert for my last post the other day.
My mom said she never did, and I only received a couple of comments, 
so I'm wondering if it ever showed up in the notifications.
(I hope this post goes through!)

I present to you another batch of B&B's!:

 Historic Merrell Inn
(South Lee, MA)

"This beautiful brick stagecoach inn welcomes you today just as it's welcomed guests for close to 200 years. Enjoy breakfast served in the original Tearoom. The Tavern Room, with its own great fireplace, invites you to sit in its copious wing chairs by a crackling fire or write a letter to a friend at the two hundred year old secretary desk.
The magic of the Berkshires lies all around us. Down the road is Stockbridge Mass, with the Norman Rockwell Museum, to the south is Great Barrrington. North of us is Lee, with its charming town square, and Lenox. We're a good base for trips to Mass Moca and the Clark Institute in Williamstown. Whether it's glorious countryside that interests you or the Berkshires' famous culture, we're an ideal tour base." 

Rates: $100-325

Elias Child House
(Woodstock, CT) 

"Located in West Woodstock on a quiet road, Elias Child House is a magnificent center hall 18th century colonial structure containing 9 rooms with a fireplace in every room. MaryBeth and Tony relocated here from their previous B&B, Maple Hill Farm in Coventry, CT. Each bed chamber has a private bath, working fireplace and air conditioning. The property consists of 47 acres, primarily wooded, with hiking or cross country skiing trails. Depending on the season, one may opt to enjoy the in-ground pool, the patio, the screened porch, the walking trails or a hearth cooking demonstration and feast. Or guests may choose to simply relax in an Adirondack chair near the rock garden. Relaxing massage or a Reiki session is available by special arrangement. A full country breakfast is served hearthside in the cheerful dining room, accompanied by classical music."

Rates: $120-150 

 The 1774 Inn
(Phippsburg,  ME) 

"On the banks of the majestic Kennebec river on the picturesque Phippsburg peninsula stands the gracious and imposing pre-Revolution 1774 Inn. It’s a house of simple pleasures and halcyon days, white linen and relaxation, sumptuous breakfasts, fresh-cut flowers and warm welcomes.
The four large bedrooms in the main house offer luxurious queen beds and private baths, and command views over sweeping lawns and the Kennebec, which takes its name from the Abenaki Indians and means “long quiet waters”.
The second-floor rooms in the adjoining ‘Ship’s Carpenters’ Quarters’ provide flexible accommodation with polished wood floors and comfortable furnishings, and the romantic first-floor Woodshed suite with its own private verandah has proved a quiet haven for newly-weds.
So - whether it’s weekend hikes and exploration, lazy days on the river, or sunny afternoons on nearby Popham beach - come and experience bed, breakfast and bliss at the historic 1774 Inn."

Rates: $140-205
