Fantastic new american restaurant with a cozy, rustic atmosphere. In the summer enjoy cornhole and ping pong on their front lawn. The focus is definitely on the meat here (they buy whole animals and feature some really interesting dishes because of this), but we’ve heard vegetarians have been more than happy with their options as well.

Parks & Nature

A short but steep hike on a well kept trail will take you to Massachusetts’ highest single drop waterfall. We love to bring a little picnic to enjoy on the boulders a bit downstream from the falls.

Features a spectacular display of blooming mountain laurel and azalea in the spring. This is a great area for picnicking and taking a dip, or just a leisurely walk around the pond if you’re not up for a big hike.

Everything Else

30 minute drive. A popular town with celebrities and escaped New Yorkers, Millerton is home to Oblong Books and Music, a Harney and Sons tea room, and the Moviehouse - an independent theater sure to be playing anything the Triplex in Great Barrington isn’t. It’s also on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail.

20 minute drive. Not a ton in this tiny town center, but close by the barn for a quick jaunt or to ride out a morning rainstorm. Take a tour of the Berkshire Mountain Distillers, or if beer is more your thing visit the Big Elm Brewing tap room for some sampling. If you’re looking for a casual meal, stop into the Marketplace Cafe or Bash Bish Brew and Que.

45 minute drive. If you’re around Lenox to visit the Mount or Tanglewood (or maybe for a spa treatment at Canyon Ranch or Cranwell - lucky you!) we recommend stopping into the little town for a quick peek around. We’ve had great dinners at Alta and Nudel or if you’re around during the day, stop into the Haven Cafe for great pastries, brunch or just a good coffee.

35 minute drive. If you’re coming from Boston you’ll drive through here on your way to the barn. We recommend driving around the town to gawk at the amazing historic mansions, stopping at the Berkshire Botanical Gardens (one of the oldest botanic gardens in the country), or catching one of the Berkshire Theatre Group shows.
