Berkshires Bed and Breakfast Luxury

October 13, 2010 by Applegate Inn

You work hard. Whether your job is in an office or in the trades, caring for your children or for elderly parents, you work hard. Vacation time is required, but often it means more work before and after trips. When you take a holiday, you want it to be worth it. Our luxury Berkshires bed and breakfast has just what you need.

Enjoy a luxurious moment by a waterfall, surrounded by brilliant fall foliage.

Located in the heart of the Massachusetts Berkshires, close to Tanglewood, the Appalachian Trail, and several charming New England towns, our Berkshires bed and breakfast luxury enjoys the peace of the country and the finest art and culture. Visit the Clark Art Institute, where past exhibits have included the work of Turner, Gainsborough, Georgia O’Keefe and Toulouse-Lautrec. Or head to Stockbridge, home to the Norman Rockwell Museum and numerous shops and boutiques. Outdoor recreation enthusiasts enjoy hiking (glorious at this time of year), cycling along country roads, and skiing in the winter.

Guests of our luxury Berkshires bed and breakfast often gather for wine and cheese in the evening, warming hands by the fire and sinking into comfortable chairs after a long day of exploration. Breakfast each morning is fresh and satisfying, elegantly served in our formal dining room by candle light.

The inn is yours during your stay. Stroll through our gardens and along wooded trails, or curl up with a good book by the fire. Indulge in luxurious whirlpool bath or steam shower (inquire when booking). Each room is spacious and private, with wet bars, refrigerators, and coffee makers.

You’re Special Enough for a Spa Day

September 27, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Many of our guests live in the city. They drive to our Berkshires bed and breakfast from Boston, Hartford, and New York City. They come for fresh air and quiet country evenings, to take long walks in the woods or to ski. These guests crave time in the country and they need it, but most live in the city because they love city life; for them, the area surrounding our Lenox MA b&b is ideal because it boasts cultural attractions, fine dining, and amenities that would make any city proud.

Our Spa Special takes advantage of our close proximity to Soul Spa, in Lee. Soul Spa offers everything a metropolitan spa offers these days, but you don’t need to fight traffic or squish yourself into a subway to get there: guests may walk the .6 miles from our inn to the spa (breathing in fresh air and admiring fall foliage as they go).

Once there, indulge in body scrubs and holistic baths, full body massages or facials. Uncover the healing powers of Shiro Dhara and Ayurvedic Rejuvenation, or try one of Soul Spa’s Unique Therapies, such as the Rain Forest Rejuvenation. We confidently recommend Soul Spa to any guests in need of serious rest, relaxation, and of course, rejuvenation. Guest of our bed and breakfast Berkshires receive a 10% discount.

Escape from the city for a spa treatment in the Berkshires.

The Berkshires for Mother’s Day

April 28, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Mother’s Day is May 9, 2010. This year, why not give your mother a gift certificate to our Lenox MA bed and breakfast?


Cherish your mother

Everyone likes to get away from time to time, but some folks just don’t do it. They are busy, or they don’t want to spend the money, or they tell themselves, “Next year I will.” Help Mom live for the moment, and send her to our luxurious bed and breakfast Berkshires.

Let her decide when to travel: perhaps she would like to attend an event at Tanglewood this summer, or the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. Perhaps she longs to spend some time in the Berkshires this fall, when the woods are gloriously red, orange, and yellow. It’s up to her, once the gift certificate is in her hands.

Give Mom a special thanks for all she’s done for you throughout your life. A Gift Certificate to our Lenox Bed and Breakfast a nice way to show her how much you care.

Make Time for Romance

April 14, 2010 by Applegate Inn

We’re running Romance Packages at our Lenox MA bed and breakfast for just a little while longer, through the end of May. A romantic getaway is great excuse to leave city living behind for a few days.  Our Lenox Bed and Breakfast is about 1 hour from Hartford, 2 hours from Boston, and 3 hours from New York City.

Spring is a lovely time in the Berkshires. The small towns start to come out of winter hibernation, throwing open their doors to the sunshine and warmth. Chilly nights make a great excuse to cuddle by the fire at our Lenox inn.


There are wonderful pigs at Hancock Shaker Village

Come for a farm and forest trail walk at Hancock Shaker Village, where you’ll see red trillium in bloom and meet many cute calves, chicks, piglets and lambs. Take in the Giovanni Boldini in Impressionist Paris exhibit at The Clark, before it closes on April 25, 2010; be sure to explore The Clark’s walking trails and grounds, too. Check out Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s project Gravity Is a Force to be Reckoned With, at MASS MoCA.

Plan a Romantic Retreat in the Snowy Berkshires

January 18, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and now is the time to plan to sweep your sweetie off his or her feet with a stay in a romantic bed and breakfast Berkshires.

Under normal circumstances, a little getaway to our Lee MA b&b can be pretty darn romantic. A beautiful setting, lazy mornings and delicious breakfasts help set a certain tone. Roaring fires in the winter add a nice touch, as does the brandy you’ll find in your room at bedtime.

Room 2, Main House, Applegate Inn

Share a quiet evening in front of the fire

If you are looking to create an ultra-romantic mood for Valentine’s Day, we offer two Romance Packages at our inn. You’re room will have its own fireplace, ready to be lit. We’ll feed you a three-course dinner for two, by candlelight. Your room will have a soaking tub and steam shower or a whirlpool large enough for two. We’ll bring a split of champagne and chocolate to your room, and we’ll leave you alone.

It is possible to add to this with our Ultimate Romance Package, which includes fresh flowers and a framed 8×10 photo of your time together here.

Of course, there is plenty to do in and around Lee MA should you decide to leave your room. Excellent restaurants, art galleries and shops await, as do miles of cross-country and downhill ski trails.

Sometimes it’s just nice to do something extra special for the person you love.

Indulge in a Spa Special

January 11, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Now that the temperatures outside our western Massachusetts lodging seem to be settled into the twenties, it seems like the perfect time to bring up our Spa Indulgence Special. If you are from anywhere in the Northeast, you are used to long, cold winters. You may even enjoy them. But from time to time, everyone needs to take a break and feel warm and pampered. For some, that means traveling to Florida. For others, it means a day at a spa.

The latter, of course, is much more economical. Spend a few days at our Lenox MA inn, where you will find warmth, comfort, and excellent food. Each day as the light wanes, you’re invited to sit by a roaring fire and enjoy wine and cheese. At bedtime, you’ll find cognac and chocolates in your room. Throughout your stay you may enjoy several comfortable seating areas throughout the inn; play the piano, play a game, read a book…. Relax.

Indulge yourself...

Indulge yourself...

To help you feel extra pampered, head to nearby Lee and the Soul Spa. Both of you will enjoy an almost hour long deep tissue massage, and you may each choose from these additional services: Reflexology, Aromatherapy, or Facial Rejuvenation. As guests of our bed and breakfast Berkshires, You’ll receive a 10% discount.

Staying in colder climates during the winter has its advantages. We feel entitled to certain things, like spa days. And in truth, we deserve them.

Berkshires Ski Special

January 4, 2010 by Applegate Inn


Time for a relaxing ski trip

The holidays are behind us now. Visiting family has returned home, the gifts have been put away, the house cleaned. You are back to your normal routine, except you keep writing 2009 on your checks instead of 2010. Life is good, but it feels like there is something missing.

In short, it’s time to plan a little trip to our bed and breakfast Berkshires.

What you need is an invigorating getaway skiing at Butternut Mountain and being pampered at our Lenox MA inn. We offer a Breakfast and Ski special Mondays – Thursdays throughout the ski season, which includes free lift passes at Butternut Ski Resort. You may also ski Jiminy Peak (for a small fee). Stay at least two nights, or extend your trip and receive additional discounts. Please see our b&b specials page for details.

There is no need to feel rushed. Sleep late, eat a hearty breakfast at your leisure, and head to the slopes when you are ready. Ski as long as you like, then return to the inn to sit by the fire and enjoy a little apres ski (the best part of skiing, in our opinion). You are here to relax and enjoy yourself, not count minutes after all.

See you soon.

Bring in the New Year in the Berkshires

December 15, 2009 by Applegate Inn

Road to Somewhere

Snow in time for the holidays

There are many different ways to celebrate New Years. For some folks, it just doesn’t feel right unless they are having a night out on the town. For others, the best way to ring in the New Year is to do it from the comfort of home, with just family. Still others like to try to something new every year, in the spirit of a openness and change.

Have you ever spent New Year’s Eve at a lovely Bed and Breakfast in the Berkshires? Consider the advantages: an elegant and peaceful setting; a variety of dining and entertainment options in the nearby New England towns of Lee, Lenox, and Stockbridge; a gourmet breakfast prepared for you on New Year’s Day, so you can sleep in and feel pampered.

We’ll gather together to toast 2009 and 2010 at 6pm on New Year’s Eve, before heading our separate ways. There are some spectacular restaurants a short drive from our Berkshires inn, and many good options for entertainment. Of course, you are also welcome to spend the evening at the inn, enjoying the warmth of the fire or the privacy of your room.

We offer both a two-night special and a three-night special for New Year’s Eve at our Berkshire’s lodging. As an extra treat, we’ll provide wine and cheese on the other nights, and you’ll find chocolates and a decanter of brandy in your room.

Shop the Berkshires

December 9, 2009 by Applegate Inn

T’is the season for shopping, and the truth is, sometimes we all get tired of the same old catalogs and the same old stores. If you are feeling that way this year, come stay at our Lenox MA Bed and Breakfast for a few days and explore the interesting New England towns that encircle us. Be sure to look into our Shopping Getaway.

If you enjoy antiquing, we’ll happily share some of our favorite shops with you. The heart of Lenox has several good antique shops, as does downtown Lee; those of you willing to spend a day driving around Western Massachusetts will discover many fantastic shops.

The area around our Berkshires bed and breakfast draws artists and craftspeople, and as a result, there is an abundance of local art and crafts. From the shop in our inn to any number of stores on any Main Street, you’ll find unique jewelry, pottery, textiles and paintings. Bring a little bit of the Berkshires home with you, or to someone you love.

There is also a terrific outlet village near here, so if you realize after browsing through dozens of smaller stores that you’d rather shop for bargains, you’ll find them here too.

We’ll be sure to feed you well before you head out for a day of shopping, and when your feet are sore, come back to the inn, enjoy a glass of wine and a soak in the tub. We offer a Shoppers Special for the shoppers among you, complete with coupons to the aforementioned outlet stores.

Seniors are Special

October 12, 2009 by Applegate Inn

Isn't this where you want to be? Now?

View of Fall Colors in the Berkshires

It’s true. You (we) seniors deserve a little recognition from time to time. We’ve worked hard at our careers and raising our children, and many of us are still hard at work volunteering our time or caring for grandchildren. Goodness knows, from time to time we need to just get away from it all and relax. So be it.

Fall Golfing Packages

September 21, 2009 by Applegate Inn

Most folks know how lovely New England is in the fall. If you have never been here at the height of fall foliage, you will be astounded by the sheer numbers of colorful deciduous trees. As one guest from the northwest uttered in awe while gazing over the colorful Berkshires, “I had no idea… I didn’t realize it was like this.” Certainly this is a good time to stay at our western Massachusetts bed and breakfast.

Bring your golf clubs the next time you stay at our Berkshires inn.

Bring your golf clubs the next time you stay at our Berkshires inn.

There are lots of ways to enjoy autumn in New England, from walks in the woods to scenic drives. For golfers, this is perhaps the best time of year to throw your clubs in the car and visit golf courses throughout New England. Crisp autumn weather is perfect for golfing: not too hot, not too cold. And nothing is quite so enjoyable as a drink in front of the fire on a cool autumn evening after you have spent the day out in the fresh air, walking from hole to hole.

We are lucky to be in such close proximity to fantastic golf. Indeed, Greenock Country Club is just across the street from our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast, and Egremont Country Club and Pontusooc Golf Club are quite close as well. Take advantage of our Fall Golfing Package and get a free round of golf at one of these locations when you stay two nights with us.

Mark Morris at Tanglewood

June 4, 2009 by Applegate Inn

The Mark Morris Dance Group are skilled dancers and fabulous performers. They will perform at Tanglewood on August 5 and 6 2009, at 8:00 PM, very near our Massachusetts Bed and Breakfast. Joining them will be Emanuel Ax on the piano, Colin Jacobsen on the violin, and Yo-Yo Ma on the cello. The trio will play Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 2 as the dancers perform “A Lake.” The world premier of “Visitation” will be performed to Beethoven’s Sonata No. 4 in C for cello and Piano, Op. 102, No. 1., and “Candleflowerdance” will be accompanied by Stravinsky’s Serenade in A for piano. Finally, the world premier of “Empire Gardens” will be danced to Ives Trio for piano, violin and cello.

It is a great honor for Tanglewood to be the site of two world premiers by Mark Morris. This talented choreographer from Seattle has created works for ballets and operas around the world. Yet perhaps it is no surprise that he chose the Tanglewood Festival to unveil two new performances; he is known for his musicality, and according to the Tanglewood website, “has been described as undeviating in his devotion to music.”

We at our Bed and Breakfast Lenox, MA are thrilled that the Mark Morris Dance Group will be at Tanglewood this August. We look forward to the performance.
