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.

Explore the Berkshires by day. Once back at our Lenox area B&B, you’ll be greeted by a pleasant, romantic atmosphere. Our Romance Package includes a room with a fireplace, a three-course dinner for two, champagne and chocolates. It’s a lovely way to celebrate the departure of winter, the arrival of spring, and your relationship.

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.

Ahhh, Autumn is in the Air

September 8, 2009 by Applegate Inn

It’s true, a hint of autumn is in the air in the Berkshires. A flash of gold and red can be spotted here and there in the woods, reminding us of what is soon to come: crisp, clean air with a hint of woodsmoke on it; rosy cheeks; wool sweaters. And of course, the crunch of dried leaves underfoot. Now is a great time to plan your next visit to our bed and breakfast in the Berkshires. If you come soon, you may still enjoy our heated pool.

The Beauty of the Berkshires

Bike the half mile from the inn to the heart of downtown Lee, where you will delight in the quaint shops, galleries and restaurants. Or grab your golf clubs and head across the street to the Greenock Country Club, where you can play on a course that was initially created in 1895. Take in a performance of The Diva Series or The Hound of the Baskervilles one evening this fall at Shakespeare & Co. in neighboring Lenox MA. Or simply enjoy a day at one of the fantastic spas in the region, pamper yourself, and relax.

As you plan your visit, be sure to look into our September and October specials. Autumn is a lovely time to wander the grounds at our Lee MA Bed and Breakfast, where a leisurely stroll brings you to an old apple orchard; we are always happy to provide a blanket should you want to share a picnic on our private grounds. We look forward to seeing you.
