Spur of the Moment Romantic Getaway

February 13th, 2012 by Applegate Inn

Is there anything more romantic than a spur of the moment romantic getaway? We think not.

Outdoor sculpture at Chesterwood.

Walk through the grounds of Chesterwood, where art and nature mingle.

Forget about dinner and a movie in your home town. Pack your bags and head to some of the most romantic land in New England–the Massachusetts Berkshires.

Spend evenings sitting together by a crackling fire. Spend afternoons out in the fresh air, or wandering through one of the areas spectacular museums: The Clark Art Institute, The Norman Rockwell Museum, Chesterwood. Hold hands.

Enjoy dinner at one of the many fine restaurants close to our Berkshires Inn. There’s Zinc, an elegant bistro and bar in Lenox that has garnered praise from the New York Times. There’s the Castle Street Cafe in Great Barrington, which will have dancing with the Wanda Houston Band on Valentine’s Day. There’s the Church Street Café, also in Lenox, where the menu changes with the seasons and decor is recycled and salvaged chic.

Berkshire Bed and Breakfasts are romantic by nature. A spur of the moment getaway to the Applegate Inn over Valentine’s Day is particularly so. The best part? Give us a call today and receive 15% discount off a stay of at least two or more nights. You must arrive within 24 hours of making the reservation to receive the special.

We would be happy to enhance your stay with our Romance Package. Please see our Bershire Inn Lodging Specials for details.

 

 

 

 

 

Lenox Massachusetts Concerts in the Park

July 8th, 2011 by Applegate Inn

Many folks who stay at our Lenox Massachusetts Bed and Breakfast arrive in the Berkshires expecting to find relief from the stifling summer heat of Boston or New York City, and they do. They arrive expecting to find unparalleled art and cultural offerings, and they’re not disappointed.

Some guests arrive at our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast with tickets in hand to see performances at Tanglewood or Jacob’s Pillow. They come ready to see the latest exhibit at The Clark or the Norman Rockwell Museum. Some come with a plan to visit Hancock Shaker Village.

A delightful surprise for many of our midweek guests are the free concerts in Lilac Park on Wednesday nights.

See the Sister City Jazz Ambassadors at the Lenox Concerts in the Park.

Lilac Park is on Main Street in Lenox – a very charming place to enjoy live music. Some listeners bring picnics, while others dine early or late at one of the restaurants within walking distance of the park:

  • Rumpy’s Tavern: a great spot for drinks.
  • Rumplestiltzkin’s Restaurant: enjoy a meal full of seasonal offerings.
  • Frankie’s Ristorante Italiano: hearty, tasty Italian fare.

 

Lilac Park Concert Schedule for July, 2011:
7.6: The Berkshire Highlanders
7.13: JoAnne Redding and her Band
