Get Away to Lenox for the Holidays

The Berkshires awaits… celebrate the holidays in turn of the century historic mansions with roaring fires, wine tastings, candle lit dinners and very special holiday treats. Become acquainted with Charles Dickens and meet Ebenezer Scrooge or chat with George Bailey to find out about his wonderful life. Journey back to the Gilded Age and enjoy afternoon teas and evening parlor games. Let the winter sun invade the beauty of the Berkshire Hills as you explore outdoor adventures through the snow.

The holidays are about time and how you spend it. Come and spend that time in the Berkshires this year. Whether you come to experience century old holiday traditions or come to create new traditions of your own, your time here will be well spent.

From Thanksgiving through the New Year Lenox and the Berkshires are alive with holiday activity. Take a walk down Norman Rockwell’s “Main Street at Christmas” in Stockbridge and then drive “over the river and through the woods” to the Gingerbread House Contest at the Historic Lenox Library.

Outdoor adventure abounds hiking through Kennedy Park in Lenox or cross country skiing through the trails at Cranwell Resort. If downhill skiing is more your style check out Bousquet, Catamount or Jiminy Peak Ski Resorts. Many of these ski areas also offer tubing which is fun for the whole family.
