Berkshires MA: A Getaway For Every Season
Posted on October 24, 2022Written by Malerie Yolen-Cohen
WHY GO: Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant, was set in the Berkshires MA. Norman Rockwell lived and composed his iconic Saturday Evening Post covers here. Inexplicably, Herman Melville wrote Moby Dick at his home in Pittsfield, far from any sea. And Edith Wharton designed her ideal home in these rolling hills. In addition, you’ll find a 1700’s minister’s home in the woods, saved by a couple with Decorative Arts cred, and a mansion built for a Gilded Age heiress.
