Follow the Leaves to Our Lee B&B

October 3rd, 2011 by Applegate Inn

You know how it happens. One day you walk out of your office in Boston and notice that the trees along the street are starting to change. The air feels invitingly crisp. You decide to leave the car parked or the subway underground and you walk. You take the long way home so you can see more trees. Once you arrive home, you realize that you crave more color.

Discover the beauty of the Berkshires in autumn.

The best step to take in these circumstances is to book a room at our Bed and Breakfast in the Berkshires as soon as possible.

Take the scenic route if you don’t mind spending an extra hour or two in the car. Route 2 can be slow but it’s pretty, meandering through such picturesque towns as Concord and Templeton. Farther south, Route 20 is a bit faster and leads through the charming towns of Sturbridge and Springfield, Massachusetts. I-90 is the quickest route to our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast from the Boston area.

Once here, explore the region by foot, bike, kayak, or car. There is plenty to do in the Berkshires in autumn. Try apple picking at nearby Bartlett’s Orchard. Take a hike; we’ll happily suggest day hikes that will surround you with fall foliage. Canoe or kayak down the Housatonic River. Bike along tree covered country lanes. Ride a horse. Or simply unwind in the gardens of our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast.

Take advantage of the Spur of the Moment Special at our Bed and Breakfast in the Berkshires. If you arrive within 24 hours of booking a room for two or more nights, you’ll receive a 15% discount on your stay.

Berkshire Mountain Biking

April 5th, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Spring is a fun time to mountain bike in the Berkshires. The trails aren’t crowded, the weather isn’t too hot, and the woods are shimmering with new growth.

Experience the Berkshires on a mountain bike

There are well over 100 mountain biking trails in the Central and Southern Berkshires. In fact, there are easily a dozen trails close to our Lenox bed and breakfast.

The Lenox Fire Tower offers a great challenge – the view from the top is worth all the effort it takes to get there, but we can’t say the ride down will be relaxing. October Mountain State Forest has 11 miles of rolling trails, while the trail up Lenox Mountain rewards your hard work with fantastic views.

You’ll be ready to relax with wine and cheese in the living room of our Lenox bed and breakfast, or soak in your generous jetted tub. After an excellent night’s sleep, we’ll provide a delicious, nourishing breakfast to help get you back in the saddle so you can explore more nearby Berkshire mountain bike trails.
