Spring in the Berkshires

April 3rd, 2012 by Applegate Inn

Golfing in the Berkshires

Golf in the Berkshires this spring.

We certainly have had spring weather here at our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast. It was in the 80s not long ago, then we had a freeze. If you are planning to spend a few days with us in the near future, be sure to pack both sweaters and shorts!

Crazy weather aside, spring is here. We know, because Greenock Golf Course, which is across the street from our Bed and Breakfast in the Berkshires, is now open. They’re running their spring rates, which are quite reasonable.

Spring is a great time to leave the city and spend a few days golfing in the country of Western Massachusetts. The greens aren’t crowded, and it is rarely uncomfortably hot or cold. Come with your spouse or come with your golfing buddies.

Spend your days trying to get the little ball in the tiny holes, and spend your evenings sipping wine and nibbling cheese at the Applegate Inn. Relax in our parlor or lounge on our screened porch or by the pool.

You may want to spend an afternoon in a local museum. It’s always fun to revisit the past with a trip to the Norman Rockwell Museum in nearby Stockbridge, where there is currently a great exhibit on the portraits of Everett Raymond Kinstler.The Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield is also a fun place to visit, with it’s varied exhibits on ancient history, art, and natural history.

Spring is a lovely time in the Berkshires, whether you spend your time golfing, visiting museums, hiking, or simply relaxing. Come see for yourself.

Bed and Breakfast Lenox: Chesterwood Museum

February 9th, 2009 by Applegate Inn

Combine art and American history by taking a trip to Chesterwood Museum and Gardens, only 7 miles from our Lenox Bed and Breakfast.

Sclupture by Daniel Chester French

Sculpture by Daniel Chester French

Chesterwood is the country home, studio and gardens of Daniel Chester French, the sculptor of the statue of Abraham Lincoln in the Memorial in Washington, DC, and The Minute Man, Concord, MA. The buildings are furnished with decorative arts and paintings collected by the sculptor. Woodland walks featuring mountain vistas and perennial gardens of French’s own design. The Studio is a fascinating space. It contains a standard-gauge railroad track used to roll large sculpture outdoors for viewing in natural light. The museum holds what is probably the largest single collection of work by any American sculptor.

The homes and gardens are exquisite, and the collections of his sculpture are impressive. Make sure to consider visiting Chesterwood during your stay at our Massachusetts Bed and Breakfast!
