The new year is almost upon us and now is the time to plan your Berkshires ski vacation. Bousquet Mountain, Jiminy Peak, Ski Butternut, and many others are just minutes from the door of our Berkshires B&B – so what are you waiting for?
There’s never a bad time to visit the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Shopping, antiquing, dining, museums, and numerous opportunities to visit the stage remain a constant whether it’s spring, summer, winter, or autumn. When the snow flies here, it only serves to make our rolling hills and quaint towns that much more magical.
And winter sports? Downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, snowshoeing, and snowmobile tours are all in the area. Some of the area’s best are an easy drive from our Lenox inn.
