Arts and Culture Weekend Getaway in the Berkshire Mountains
Harking back to a bygone era, the stately mansion Cranwell (rooms from $199/night) got its start about 100 years ago as a getaway for the era's wealthy. Take your choice of restored rooms in the main mansion, or in any of the luxurious cottages sprinkled about the rolling grounds.
The adorable Shaker Mill Inn (rooms from $109/night) earns points for its lovely rooms and its charming innkeepers. The slightly off-the-beaten-path location (though still only a few short minutes to Tanglewood) also offers good value relative to some of its more centrally located brethren.
Filled with tchotchkes and standing on the site of an old stagecoach stop, the historic Red Lion Inn (rooms from $140/night) gives the impression of a place lovingly frozen in time. The pedigreed grand dame nevertheless manages to offer some modern touches — like an outdoor pool with radiant-heated deck that stays warm all winter long.
