Here in the Berkshires, we treasure the Trustees of Reservations. As a conservationist organization, they provide beautifully maintained, scenic hiking trails, historic homes to visit, and lovely gardens. Among our favorite places is Naumkeag in Stockbridge (a gorgeous Stanford White home with gardens), and also Ashintully Gardens in Tyringham. This weekend we’ll have perfect weather for hiking some of the trails as well, so at Brook Farm Inn we’ll be glad to provide maps and directions. All the sites are close to Lenox.
