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!
