Bliss Near Boston

February 9th, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Did you know that our Lenox MA bed and breakfast is just two hours west of Boston? The drive couldn’t be simpler: get on I-90 with coffee and water, and get off in Lee, well-hydrated and ready to go. It’s an easy escape from the city.

Snowshoes

Strap them on and go

Here, in the Berkshire Mountains near Lenox, the air is clean and the crowds are thin. Why join the masses as they head north to NH when you could sail west? After your drive, enjoy a glass of wine at the inn before heading out to dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants in nearby Lee, Lenox or Stockbridge. Back in your room, relax with a glass of brandy before drifting off to sleep. You’ll want to be well-rested.

There is terrific skiing near our Lenox area inn. Jiminy Peak in Hancock is the largest downhill ski area in Southern New England. It’s 44 trails are open day and night, so you can ski or snowboard until you drop. Catamount on the NY border, and Butternut Ski Area in Great Barrington are also excellent mountains for skiing and snowboarding. Be sure to check out our Berkshires ski and lodging special while planning your next trip.

If you prefer to avoid adrenaline sports, Beartown State Park to the south has superb trails for XC skiing and snowshoeing. Or head east a few miles to October Mountain State Forest, where more trails for cross-country skiing and snow shoeing await.

Fresh snow is expected this week. Grab your skis, boards or shoes and head west!

Berkshires Ski Special

January 4th, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Skiing

Time for a relaxing ski trip

The holidays are behind us now. Visiting family has returned home, the gifts have been put away, the house cleaned. You are back to your normal routine, except you keep writing 2009 on your checks instead of 2010. Life is good, but it feels like there is something missing.

In short, it’s time to plan a little trip to our bed and breakfast Berkshires.

What you need is an invigorating getaway skiing at Butternut Mountain and being pampered at our Lenox MA inn. We offer a Breakfast and Ski special Mondays – Thursdays throughout the ski season, which includes free lift passes at Butternut Ski Resort. You may also ski Jiminy Peak (for a small fee). Stay at least two nights, or extend your trip and receive additional discounts. Please see our b&b specials page for details.

There is no need to feel rushed. Sleep late, eat a hearty breakfast at your leisure, and head to the slopes when you are ready. Ski as long as you like, then return to the inn to sit by the fire and enjoy a little apres ski (the best part of skiing, in our opinion). You are here to relax and enjoy yourself, not count minutes after all.

See you soon.
