Leave the City and Ski the Berkshires

February 1st, 2010 by Applegate Inn

There are lovely aspects to winter in the city: it is perhaps the best time to head to museums and matinees, and to hole up in cafes drinking coffee and watching people. Yet somehow the cold is colder in the city, and the wind more ruthless as it roars between buildings.

So when you are feeling tired of winter in the city, head to our Lenox bed and breakfast in the Berkshires. The cold can be refreshing and invigorating under the right circumstances After a weekend of lazy mornings, scrumptious breakfasts and a romp or two in the snow, you’ll be ready to return to winter routine in NYC or Boston.

Kennedy Park is a scenic five miles north of our inn.

Kennedy Park, in Lenox, MA, is just over five miles from our Berkshires bed and breakfast. Old carriage roads and fifteen miles of groomed trails through hardwood forests make Kennedy Park an ideal place to XC ski or snowshoe. If fresh snow has fallen you can even try to ski to Kennedy Park from the inn. You’ll look forward to warming yourselves by the fire back at our inn.

Perhaps the best part of a weekend in the Berkshires is that you don’t need to sacrifice culture. If you tire of outdoor activity, spend an hour or two in one of the many fine museums in the area.

You musn’t forget to ask your innkeepers to share some of their favorite restaurants. There is excellent dining in Western Massachusetts, and you should have a good appetite after several hours in the fresh air.

You may never want to return to the city again.
