Harmony. If I had to describe Lenox in one word, it would be this.
Of course, Lenox being the summer home of the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood with as many as six concerts a week in the summer it’s only natural to think of musical harmony. But harmony in Lenox is more than musical.
It’s culture and the arts, such as Shakespeare & Co., in harmony with nature — our mountains, lakes, and nature trails at Kennedy Park and Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary.
It’s culinary harmony with our renown restaurants in harmony with Berkshire grown and produced fruits and vegetables, cheeses and meats.
It’s the past, as evident in our historic homes such as Birchwood Inn, Ventfort Hall, and author Edith Wharton’s elegant restored estate The Mount, in harmony with our unique boutiques, from antique shops and handcrafted art — wearable and decorative — to the latest fashions.
It’s the harmony of the seasons with downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing in winter to hiking, cycling, and water sports in warmer months. It’s fireflies in summer, foliage in fall, blossoms in spring, and firesides in winter.
Harmony is in the residents and visitors from around the world, many of whom become residents.
Yes, Lenox is harmony.
