Great Outdoors

The area takes its name from the Berkshire Hills, which characterize this part of Western Massachusetts. It’s an area of hills, lakes and many, many trees. Right across the road from the motel is the trailhead for Monument Mountain, popular with walkers year round and, allegedly, the place where Herman Melville came up with the idea for Moby Dick whilst hiking with Nathaniel Hawthorne.

The Appalachian Trail runs just a few miles from here, and Mount Greylock, the highest peak in Massachusetts, is well under an hour’s drive.  Fans of waterfalls will enjoy Bash Bish Falls at nearby Mount Washington, while more serene watery pursuits can be enjoyed at the Berkshire Fishing Club just up the road in Becket.

In the winter, there’s cross-country and downhill skiing: Butternut is just 10 minutes away, and Catamount around 20 minutes.

Our resident wild turkeys are pretty much guaranteed to put in an appearance while you're here. We like to think of them as New England's version of peacocks...
