You know how it happens. One day you walk out of your office in Boston and notice that the trees along the street are starting to change. The air feels invitingly crisp. You decide to leave the car parked or the subway underground and you walk. You take the long way home so you can see more trees. Once you arrive home, you realize that you crave more color.
The best step to take in these circumstances is to book a room at our Bed and Breakfast in the Berkshires as soon as possible.
Take the scenic route if you don’t mind spending an extra hour or two in the car. Route 2 can be slow but it’s pretty, meandering through such picturesque towns as Concord and Templeton. Farther south, Route 20 is a bit faster and leads through the charming towns of Sturbridge and Springfield, Massachusetts. I-90 is the quickest route to our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast from the Boston area.
Once here, explore the region by foot, bike, kayak, or car. There is plenty to do in the Berkshires in autumn. Try apple picking at nearby Bartlett’s Orchard. Take a hike; we’ll happily suggest day hikes that will surround you with fall foliage. Canoe or kayak down the Housatonic River. Bike along tree covered country lanes. Ride a horse. Or simply unwind in the gardens of our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast.
Take advantage of the Spur of the Moment Special at our Bed and Breakfast in the Berkshires. If you arrive within 24 hours of booking a room for two or more nights, you’ll receive a 15% discount on your stay.
Catamount Ski Area in Great Barrington, MA, is just 30 minutes from our luxury Bed and Breakfast Berkshires. As of this writing there are 24 out of 33 trails open and 4 out of 6 lifts carrying skiers to the top. A couple of the trails are not groomed and moguls are already forming. It looks to be a terrific season.
The blizzard that ushered out 2010 up and down the eastern seaboard certainly whetted appetites for snow sports. While cross country skiers had a heyday in Central Park, downhill skiers and snowboarders could only dream of distant mountains. Well, now the roads are clear and the mountains await.
Catamount is a terrific ski area on the Massachusetts / New York border. Travelers who can be spontaneous may take advantage of $27 daytime lift tickets through Friday this week. In addition, we offer a discount to spur of the moment guests of our luxury Berkshires Bed and Breakfast; call within 24 hours of your arrival and receive 15% off your entire stay. A little spontaneity can go a long way towards making travel more affordable.
If you feel exhausted and worn out after a whirlwind holiday season, time spent at our Bed and Breakfast Berkshires may be just what you need. Ski Catamount and let the fresh air and powder invigorate you. What a wonderful way to begin a new year.
