Oh Brave New Brews! Lenox & Surrounding Area Breweries

Good Morning, Lenox!

We’ve had 80 inches of snow this winter! Great for Piper and me to roll in! We haven’t been the only ones to embrace this flaky winter. ABC thought it was great and picturesque as well. Remember that January storm? Well, the Berkshires were in the eye of it and captured the eye of ABC, […]

Woof! Summer Carriage Rides

I love Carriage Rides. Cool! You sit and trot at a leisurely pace while folks on the sidewalks wave. I know because I’ve been on two rides, as you can see in the photo. And you’ll have a chance to enjoy a Carriage Ride through historic Lee on Memorial Day Weekend. If this is successful, […]
