Stockbridge Inn Extras
History of the Inn
The Inn was originally built as a summer cottage in 1906 by a Boston attorney named Phillip Blagdon. The land was owned by his wife's family, the Runnels. The land can be traced back to the original settlers in Stockbridge, a missionary family by the name of Williams, who came to the area in 1739 to convert the Stockbridge Indians to Christianity.
The land and the property stayed in the family until 1972. It was then sold a few times before coming under the ownership of Karen Putman, who turned it into a guest house, which she operated for a few years.
In 1982, Lee and Don Weitz bought the Inn and named it the Inn at Stockbridge. They lovingly restored the Inn, adding some personal space and building a terrace room. In 1995, Alice and Len Schiller purchased the Inn, moving from Maplewood New Jersey and making Stockbridge their home. Alice and Len built the cottage house in 1997 and the barn in 2001. They continue to make improvements to the Inn in order to enhance their guests' experience.
Please feel free to enjoy the grounds and make the Inn your home away from home. Our philosophy from the beginning has not been to sit back and let the world pass us by. We find that being open to new ideas and new slants on innkeeping creates the momentum that keeps us thinking of new ways to make your stay a more pleasurable and rejuvenating experience. It is the whole Inn at Stockbridge experience that we strive to enhance.
