Billed as a writer’s mountain retreat, the Life House Berkshires lodge has reopened with a new look that wholeheartedly embraces its 1970s roots.
Green velvet, patterned upholstery, caramel leather and parquet flooring all speak to the history of the hotel, which is located close to the Massachusetts town of Lenox. The lodge is fresh from a full renovation led by the hospitality group Life House, which also owns hotels in Miami, New England and Denver.
The interiors riff on vintage design, as well as the colours and textures of the surrounding countryside – some of which are echoed in the green- and red-tinted fabrics found throughout the hotel. Rooms are warm and welcoming, in particular Life House Berkshires’ library lounge, with its rows of wooden shelves and deep armchairs.
The latter belongs to the lodge’s new extension, which also houses a restaurant serving locally sourced breakfast and desserts inspired by ‘the colours and flavours of the Berkshires landscape’. Rooms start at $169 a night, and come furnished with a writer’s desk for when literary inspiration strikes.
