There’s never a bad time to visit the Berkshires but one of the most popular times is now – autumn – when the Berkshires fall foliage comes to life with beautiful colors and the area abounds with fun things to do and see.
While many parts of the country begin to wind down once summer passes, the Berkshires heat up (so to speak) with a variety of events including things like down-home harvest festivals and parades, special concerts, parties, tours, and more.

Autumn in the Berkshires is living art. The landscape is a canvas of colors – red, russet, orange, yellow, green, blue… It is interactive art at its finest.
The Norman Rockwell Museum has integrated this natural art into one of its exhibits. “An Outdoor Installation for the 21st Century” has been at the museum all summer and it lingers to stand against a backdrop of fall foliage. It will close October 31, 2011.
Have you seen the 2005 film Robots? If so, you have some idea of what you’ll find on the grounds of the Norman Rockwell Museum. Artists and craftspeople from all media were invited to submit sculptural robots inspired by the the film. The robots stand in stark contrast to the traditional paintings inside the museum, and the pastoral landscape surrounding it.
It’s worth a look.
Come spend a few days at our Berkshires Bed and Breakfast. The Applegate Inn is located in Lee Massachusetts, just a few miles from Stockbridge and the Norman Rockwell Museum. It takes about fifteen minutes to drive to the museum from here, and less than 45 minutes to bike there.
For more information about “An Outdoor Installation for the 21st Century”, please visit the Norman Rockwell Museum.

It’s true, fall colors are at their peak all around our Berkshires bed and breakfast. It’s a delight just to look out the window. When the wind blows, little pieces of color fly through the sky: a flash of orange here, a shimmer of yellow there.

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.
There are lots of ways to enjoy autumn in New England, from walks in the woods to scenic drives.

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.
