The Call of the Berkshires

March 27, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Temperatures are climbing and snow is melting. Spring is here.

You can hear the Berkshires calling to you from Boston, Hartford, and NYC. Your legs are yearning to stretch out along a trail. You want to hear birds, not traffic.

It’s time to take a break from city living. Come to our Lee bed and breakfast for a few days. There are many trails nearby, just waiting for you. You may also want to drive 20 miles north of Lenox to Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts. From the top, you’ll feel your spirit soar.


Spring Guests at Applegate Inn

Four baby robins at Applegate Inn

On the window sill of one of our guest rooms, a robin has built her nest. Last week, four tiny eggs hatched into four tiny birds. The mother comes and goes regularly bringing them food.

Berkshires Spring Arrives, Summer Soon to Follow

May 12, 2008 by Applegate Inn

Spring has arrived early this year in the Berkshires with consistently good weather and temperatures in the 70’s.
Len has even played golf 4 times already.
But mostly we are very busy at Applegate preparing for summer.
Gloria has set up the porch with some new furnishings and lighting and the gardens have been cleaned up and are starting to sprout. Here are some home lighting ideas to help you decide where to place any new lights.
The pool is even open now and will be ready and heated for swimming in a few days.
John, our handyman and Len have been roaming the property in our golf cart cleaning things up from the winter.
Several of the summer cultural venues have announced their schedules and it looks like it will be an exciting season.
We have gotten our tickets already for Tanglewood and Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival.
We are studying the Barrington Stage and Stockbridge Theater schedules and will be getting those tickets soon as well. The Williamstown Theater looks very interesting as well and we may go there for a couple of plays.
Mostly though, Spring is a miracle of rebirth and regreening of the landscape.
It is something we love and look forward to each year.
