You work hard. Whether your job is in an office or in the trades, caring for your children or for elderly parents, you work hard. Vacation time is required, but often it means more work before and after trips. When you take a holiday, you want it to be worth it. Our luxury Berkshires bed and breakfast has just what you need.
Located in the heart of the Massachusetts Berkshires, close to Tanglewood, the Appalachian Trail, and several charming New England towns, our Berkshires bed and breakfast luxury enjoys the peace of the country and the finest art and culture. Visit the Clark Art Institute, where past exhibits have included the work of Turner, Gainsborough, Georgia O’Keefe and Toulouse-Lautrec. Or head to Stockbridge, home to the Norman Rockwell Museum and numerous shops and boutiques. Outdoor recreation enthusiasts enjoy hiking (glorious at this time of year), cycling along country roads, and skiing in the winter.
Guests of our luxury Berkshires bed and breakfast often gather for wine and cheese in the evening, warming hands by the fire and sinking into comfortable chairs after a long day of exploration. Breakfast each morning is fresh and satisfying, elegantly served in our formal dining room by candle light.
The inn is yours during your stay. Stroll through our gardens and along wooded trails, or curl up with a good book by the fire. Indulge in luxurious whirlpool bath or steam shower (inquire when booking). Each room is spacious and private, with wet bars, refrigerators, and coffee makers. Ask about our luxury Berkshire inn Spa Indulgence Special or our Additional Ad On Options (such as wine or chocolates in the room). You may never want to leave.
The Stockbridge Summer Arts & Crafts Show has been a regional staple for nearly 20 years. In 2010 it will take place August 21 and 22 at the Berkshire Botanical Garden, and we highly recommend guests of our Western Massachusetts bed and breakfast check it out.
Talented artisans and craftspeople from around the region attend the Stockbridge Arts & Crafts Show. Look for original jewelry by Emily Hirsch, and folk art paintings by Suzanne Goudreau. This is a wonderful place to get a head start on holiday shopping, or to pick up a unique piece of art for your home.
The Berkshire Botanical Garden is among the oldest of its kind. Established in 1934, it features wooded walking trails, a traditional herb garden, and a lovely rose garden on its fifteen acres. Take a break from looking at the artisans and vendors and stroll through the grounds. Light refreshments will be available at the show, to enjoy as you explore.
Norman Rockwell called Stockbridge “the best of New England”, and it is indeed a picturesque town. After visiting the Arts and Crafts Show, take some time to explore Stockbridge itself. We’d be happy to recommend restaurants that guests of our bed and breakfast Berkshires have enjoyed in the past.

Most folks know how lovely New England is in the fall. If you have never been here at the height of fall foliage, you will be astounded by the sheer numbers of colorful deciduous trees. As one guest from the northwest uttered in awe while gazing over the colorful Berkshires, “I had no idea… I didn’t realize it was like this.” Certainly this is a good time to stay at our western Massachusetts bed and breakfast.
There are lots of ways to enjoy autumn in New England, from walks in the woods to scenic drives. For golfers, this is perhaps the best time of year to throw your clubs in the car and visit golf courses throughout New England. Crisp autumn weather is perfect for golfing: not too hot, not too cold. And nothing is quite so enjoyable as a drink in front of the fire on a cool autumn evening after you have spent the day out in the fresh air, walking from hole to hole.
We are lucky to be in such close proximity to fantastic golf. Indeed, Greenock Country Club is just across the street from our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast, and Egremont Country Club and Pontusooc Golf Club are quite close as well.
