The Berkshires, the Best of New England.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I've been lucky enough to know about and visit the Berkshires in western Massachusetts for many many years. That said, visiting someplace is different than living there but in this case it doesn't get much better. And so after years of looking I finally bought a home here and absolutely love it. The region is very special: it is intimate but has a vast variety of activities. If you are a music fan there is Tanglewood in Lenox: the summer home of the Boston Symphony and a venue that features other music from James Taylor to the Bare Naked Ladies, pop to jazz. If you are into dance there is Jacobs Pillow, outside Otis and the Mahawie in Great Barrington that in addition to dance, has HD plays, opera and live concerts throughout the year. If you like stage plays there are numerous venues here that operate year round. Movie goers can find new and current offerings as well as art house and classic offerings. Sports enthusiasts don't want for much here either: there are numerous professional golf courses, ample ball field and leagues and wonderful soccer fields too. Boston is less than two hours away if you want to see professional teams play.

The beauty of the land is just magnificent here. October and Monument Mountains, the highest peaks in the state are easy to assess and hike, and offer beautiful vistas and varied trails offering everything from easy to expert opportunities. And then there are the historic places: Edith Whartons Home, Melville's visions, and my favorite: the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. There is the Clark Institute in Williamstown, and the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield. There are botanical gardens everywhere. I could go on and on but the reality is the anywhere you visit in the Berkshires is magic: a point in time frozen and yet vital. The pictures included were taken on Columbus Day at the Rockwell Museum. Enjoy the scenery and come and visit.

Oh yes, that is a lovely area.  I used to go to camp there, and then my grandparents rented a summer home there and we would always visit. I think I've gone to most of the places you mentioned.  Love it there.
