Location is the key word. Situated in the heart of the Berkshire mountains, we truly have the best of both worlds when it comes to location and cultural activities for our guests.During the summer months, the area is home to the ever popular Boston Symphony Orchestra performing at Tanglewood in nearby Lenox. Famous author Edith Wharton, whose estate is known as The Mount, is also located in Lenox. This is where the region’s foremost theatrical ensemble, Shakespeare & Company performs many classic plays from the famous playwright. Theater is blossoming in the Berkshires with locations such as Jacob’s Pillow, and The Berkshire Theater Festival. A short ride will bring you to Hancock, where Hancock Shaker Village is situated. You can tour the grounds of this quaint village and experience the Shaker way of life for yourself. You may even be able to time your arrival to coincide with the annual auction of Shaker items! If antiques are your passion,you will find an abundance of fine antique shops will capture your attention in the Great Barrington and Stockbridge area and all across The Berkshires.
Fall hiking in the nearby mountains provide a spectacular display of colors that the Berkshires are famous for, and color is a word that brings to mind the deep red glory of Bartlett’s Orchard apples, where fresh cider and homemade pies are available in abundance. Also in the Autumn months, the Fall Foliage Crafts Fair at the Berkshire Garden Center in Stockbridge is an entertaining way to spend the day. In September,the annual Josh Billings’ Road Race is held in Gt. Barrington.
Winter offers many snow covered trails just a few miles from us at the Butternut Ski Resort. We have super ski packages to offer you throughout the season which typically lasts from late November to late March. December is Christmastime in Stockbridge and the Festival of Trees at the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield will delight you with the largest assortment of uniquely decorated trees in the area. Winterfest in Gt. Barrington is also a terrific attraction to see in the immediate area.
