Spring in the Berkshires

Golfing in the Berkshires

Golf in the Berkshires this spring.

We certainly have had spring weather here at our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast. It was in the 80s not long ago, then we had a freeze. If you are planning to spend a few days with us in the near future, be sure to pack both sweaters and shorts!

Crazy weather aside, spring is here. We know, because Greenock Golf Course, which is across the street from our Bed and Breakfast in the Berkshires, is now open. They’re running their spring rates, which are quite reasonable.

Spring is a great time to leave the city and spend a few days golfing in the country of Western Massachusetts. The greens aren’t crowded, and it is rarely uncomfortably hot or cold. Come with your spouse or come with your golfing buddies.

Spend your days trying to get the little ball in the tiny holes, and spend your evenings sipping wine and nibbling cheese at the Applegate Inn. Relax in our parlor or lounge on our screened porch or by the pool.

You may want to spend an afternoon in a local museum. It’s always fun to revisit the past with a trip to the Norman Rockwell Museum in nearby Stockbridge, where there is currently a great exhibit on the portraits of Everett Raymond Kinstler.The Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield is also a fun place to visit, with it’s varied exhibits on ancient history, art, and natural history.

Spring is a lovely time in the Berkshires, whether you spend your time golfing, visiting museums, hiking, or simply relaxing. Come see for yourself.

Spend the 4th of July in the Massachusetts Berkshires

June 27th, 2011 by Applegate Inn

New England is a wonderful place to spend the 4th of July. After all, some of the first stirrings of revolution took place in Massachusetts back in the 18th century. The 4th of July is always festive here at our Bed and Breakfast Lenox MA.

Guests of our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast are welcome to swim and lounge by the pool all day on the 4th. Yet those who want to get out and about may enjoy the following activities:

Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox puts on a free but heart-felt reading of the Declaration of Independence each July 4th. This year, the reading will be preceded by Revolutionary Moments, a collection of vignettes that divulge Shakespeare’s influence “on some of history’s most fascinating figures.” The afternoon concludes with a community barbecue. More information is available at Shakespeare & Co.

Learn the Samba at Jacob’s Pillow on July 2, 2011.

There will be many free events and classes offered at Jacob’s Pillow throughout the weekend. More information is available at Jacob’s Pillow.

The 2011 4th of July Pittsfield Parade will feature almost 140 marching units. It feels historically significant. More information is available at Pittsfield Parade.

We look forward to welcoming guests to our Berkshires lodging for the 4th of July, 2011.
