Here in Lenox, Massachusetts, one of the local treasures is Ventfort Hall, an 1893 Gilded Age “cottage,” built by the sister of J.P. Morgan. You can take tours, and also enjoy historic exhibits and events there. During the month of May, there are a number of events, and it’s within walking distance of the Brook Farm Inn bed and breakfast. On Saturday, May 10 there’s a Mother’s Day Celebration, and on Saturday, May 17, the New England Baroque Soloists will perform. So, a Berkshires getaway is a great idea for Mother’s Day.
