The Fall Season Foliage:
Autumn in the Berkshires is a dazzling kaleidoscope. Of course, the foliage is the focus of this vibrant season, to enjoy while toodling along the back roads, hiking, cycling, picnicking, apple-picking, golfing, exploring historic homes such as The Mount, Naumkeag, Chesterwood or Hancock Shaker Village. After a day in the crisp fall air, come warm up by the fire with a steaming mug of fresh hot cider at our romantic Berkshires Bed and Breakfast.
