Applegate Inn is a four-season retreat located in the town of Lee, in the heart of the Berkshires. Our diverse and beautiful region is well worth exploring, and Applegate Inn makes the perfect “home base” for just such adventures.
We like to say that there’s always something to see or do in the Berkshires and it’s absolutely true. Between the area’s natural beauty and world-class offerings like the Tanglewood Music Festival and the Norman Rockwell Museum, you’re likely to spend more time figuring out what to miss than what to see.
Applegate Inn’s concierge service, available 2pm to 7pm most weekdays, can help you make those tougher decisions as well as reservations. While you’re making those decisions, don’t overlook some of the less famous – yet no less entertaining or amazing – things to do right here in Lee MA!
