Berkshire Attractions: The Berkshires offer something for everyone all year round. In summer -- world class music and theatre performances; in fall -- amazing foliage displays in picturesque settings; in winter -- downhill and cross-country skiing close by; and in spring -- beautiful hiking trails, botanical gardens, and pond and stream fishing. All year round there are cultural events galore, including art and historical museums, galleries, and dance, music and theatre festivals. Shopping ranges from outlet malls to one-of-a-kind boutiques. Great restaurants, farmers' markets, and lots of local fresh food make for great eating and cooking opportunities. For outdoor enthusiasts there are numerous lakes with great swimming and boating, mountains and forests with hiking trails (including the Appalachian trail), fruit and berry-picking, snowshoeing, skiing, and mountain-biking. Numerous spas, yoga centers, and retreats offer day programs. Our house offers easy access to all these attractions.
True Relaxation: This property offers something truly unique -- the opportunity to really relax and unwind in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Sitting on the deck or in an adirondack chair in the middle of the lawn, you can gaze out at the acres of trees and listen to the soothing Hui of the trout streams. There is nothing in the panorama of flowers and leaves to interfere with the chance to enjoy friends, read, paint, and recover from the wear and tear of daily work life.
