Mother Nature’s Mood Swings

November 1st, 2011 by Applegate Inn

Blue skies, colorful fall foliage, and a thick base of snow… that’s what we see out the windows of our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast these days.

The beauty of the Berkshires.

We’re enjoying the view while it’s here. The sun is expected to be with us for most of the week and temperatures are climbing. Already the snow is beginning to recede.

Nonetheless, this little taste of winter has invigorated everyone. Children and adults have been out in force with their sleds. People are lining up at ski areas such as Jiminy Peak, Catamount Ski Area, and Canterbury Farms Nordic Center. None of the ski areas are open yet (in spite of having received 12 to 18 inches of snow over the weekend) because ground temperatures are too warm, but we don’t think skiers will have to wait long.

In the meantime, let’s enjoy the wild mood swings of Mother Nature while we can. We encourage folks to take advantage of our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast Spur of the Moment Special. Arrive here within 24 hours of booking your 2 night stay and you’ll receive 15% off your entire stay. If you’re office is still closed due to lack of electricity or your home is cold and dark, hop in your car and find warmth at the Applegate Inn.

Sit by the grand fireplace in our parlor, where in the evening we serve a selection of wine and cheeses. Remember the best part of winter – cozy evenings by the fire after days of brisk outdoor activity. You’ll find yourself looking forward to the next snow fall.
