DINING IN THE BERKSHIRES
The Berkshires inspire the many artists and artisans who live and create here in the hills, including our culinary artists. From great greasy burgers to haute cuisine, from American to Japanese, and from homey diners to elegant mansions, the Berkshires offer a smorgasbord of dining choices near our romantic Berkshires getaway.
In the summer and autumn as well as on holidays, we recommend that dinner reservations be made at least two weeks or more prior to your stay at our Berkshires Inn. On weekends during the Quiet Season, advance reservations made one week ahead are also a good idea.
