The cottage was just as described - wonderfully rustic and comfortable and just what we were looking for.. We were very relieved to find that the cottage is set well away from other surrounding homes, as our small doggie has a very sharp bark that might annoy others (and why we could never stay in a condo).
The large eat-in kitchen, has everything you might want - right down to a corkscrew. The furniture and beds were comfortable and there were many blankets.
The restaurants were terrific - our favorite was Alta, expensive for us, but well worth a special night out! The Village Cafe, which is also a B&B, is nice - with a very congenial owner on the premises. Most restaurants in the area also have outside dining.
We also recommend Tanglewood, where we saw the very wonderful James Taylor in concert.
Not to be missed is Shakespeare and Company. We saw a production of "Twelfth Night" that was so entertaining that even my not-so-Shakespeare-oriented spouse said he was "getting the jokes." This was theater at its professional best! ,
The guided tour of the Norman Rockwell Museum gave new depth and understanding both to the art and the man. We now have a new appreciation for the wry details he included in his work.
Edith Wharton's home, called "The Mount" is a beautiful mansion with a spectacular rear garden. The guided tour was helpful in explaining the life of this author along with the her reasons for building the home.
Because it was raining, we were not able to take the Berkshire Scene Tours guided canoe trip down the river or tour the Berkshire's Botanical Gardens. Well save that for the next time!
