Lee vacation rentals

Lee is Queen Bee of the Berkshires

If it's charm you want, the quaint town of Lee has it in spades. Nestled in the foothills of Massachusetts' Berkshire Mountains, it's crammed with charming clapboard houses and tall church steeples and is a popular spot to witness the fall foliage. Book a Lee vacation rental and you'll have the best of the Berkshires right on your doorstep. Enjoy a concert at the Tanglewood Music Festival in nearby Lenox, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, or visit the Norman Rockwell Museum, the largest collection of Rockwell art in the world.

Lee is Lee-ding the way when it comes to relaxing

If it's a relaxing vacation you want, then make Lee your first stop. Known as the Gateway to the Berkshires, the clutch of rural towns and villages in western Massachusetts, life rolls at a slower pace here. Potter around the antiques shops on Main Street, or catch a concert by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in their summer home in nearby Lenox. If you're more into action than classics, then rent a canoe or go fishing on Laurel Lake. But for a classic experience, see the blazing fall foliage along the Mohawk Trail.

You'd be Berking mad to miss Berkshire's main attractions

A popular family destination, keep the kids occupied with an afternoon at AniMagic, a hands-on museum about animation and special effects. The museum and workshops are run by Oscar-winning visual effects guy Eugene Mamut, and appeals to all ages. For more classical art lovers, visit the Norman Rockwell Museum in the next town of Stockbridge. The Berkshire's are also a big draw for music fans. Visit between June and September, when the Tanglewood Music Festival hits town, and see a concert by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in their summer home.

For fabulous fall foliage, visit Lee

There's no bad time to visit Lee, and every season brings something different. Peak season is June, July, and August, when Lee's top vacation rentals are in most demand. The temperatures can reach highs of mid-70s in July and August, which brings plenty of sunshine. Fall is also a popular time to visit, when much of New England bursts into color during the fall foliage. But don't strike out a winter vacation, because when the Berkshires experience a blanket of snow, it turns the charming towns and villages, including Lee, into a dazzling Christmas card scene.

Join the hunt for the red October (Forest)

Part of the Berkshires, a clutch of pretty New England towns, Lee is surrounded by the eponymous Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts. The region is dominated by the lush green October Mountain State Forest, where the world-famous Appalachian Trail draws hikers and adventurers from all over the world. One of the forest's most scenic trails is through the Schermerhorn Gorge, where you'll find waterfalls, wildflowers, and rare flora. And come winter, the forest trails become the perfect foil for some brilliant cross-country skiing.
