Bigtime Design Studios renovates Berkshires inn's event spaces

On the heels of its transformation from an inn to a 57-room boutique hotel, the Berkshires’ Seven Hills Inn unveiled new event spaces and services for group meetings in Lenox, Mass. 

Miami-based Bigtime Design Studios carried out the vision for the renovation of the former Gilded Age estate, blending old and new design elements for Seven Hills. There are new furnishings and textiles throughout, new guest bathrooms, fully renovated common areas, and updated exteriors, landscaping and pool area.

Seven Hills’ original 1911 mansion, the Manor House, has an open floor plan and 5,000 square feet of air-conditioned function space, including the Hawthorne Music Room accommodating 150 and Wharton Ballroom accommodating up to 170. The smaller Spencer Parlor and Housatonic Dining Room with adjoining outdoor terrace are ideal for more intimate gatherings and breaks. In warm weather, the hotel’s Manor Terrace is ideal for a mid-morning break or an evening reception overlooking the landscaped grounds.

Set on 27 acres of lawns and gardens in the Berkshire town of Lenox, Seven Hills has been welcoming guests since 1951, when the original 1911 mansion was converted to an inn. Seven Hills has 57 guest accommodations, all with private baths, in three buildings—the original Manor House, the Carriage House, and the Terrace Building. It has, in total, 5,000 square feet of event space.
