Lodging // Warfield House Inn

The Warfield House Inn is minutes from the slopes and has 14 guest rooms spread between two buildings—the nine-room Main House and the five-room Bungalow. The inn is situated on a 180-acre working farm in the rolling Berkshire foothills, and even though the pandemic has shuttered some of the inn’s services, such as the breakfast offerings, the mountainto­p location and accompanyi­ng views are an acceptable tradeoff. Indy Pass holders get a 10 percent discount.
