Each year, the historic town of Stockbridge Massachusetts brings a Norman Rockwell painting to life. Not literally, of course, but as close as you can get. Norman Rockwell’s hometown is a picturesque village any time of year, but when it dresses for the Christmas season, it outdoes itself.
We still have a couple of openings at our bed and breakfast Berkshires for the weekend of December 3, 4, and 5, 2010. If you have never stepped into a Norman Rockwell painting, do it this year. As you walk down the streets of Stockbridge you’ll pass dozens of antique cars and people dressed as they did in Rockwell’s day. Leap right in and join in the caroling.
Some of the loveliest historic homes in Stockbridge will open their doors to the public for the Holiday House Tours. Visitors may ride in horse drawn carriages and enjoy a holiday concerts. On Sunday the 5th, the town will do it’s best to fully recreate Rockwell’s famous Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas. See if you can find a hair out of place.
If you are in the mood to fully embrace the holidays this year, book a room in our bed and breakfast Berkshires and then head to Stockbridge for a Norman Rockwell Christmas.
