With gentle peaks, fairytale-like forests, idyllic meadows, and subtle New England charms, the Berkshires are among the most treasured outdoor playgrounds in Massachusetts. Elevations here never reach more than 900 feet, and the area is fewer than 100 miles.
Modest stats don’t stop these highlands from being one of the most beloved American recreational places. It is here that “Moby Dick” writer Herman Melville lived and created, it is here that you find such iconic performance venues as Tanglewood and Jacob’s Pillow, and it is here that the celebrated painter Norman Rockwell spent more than 20 years of his life.
No wonder such an inspiring region has such fantastic lodging. Here are the best luxury hotels in the Berkshires that will allow you to feel the magnetic atmosphere of these hills.
