Located in the center of Southern Berkshire County, the Town of Great Barrington is minutes away from
major arts, recreation, antiques, and ski attractions. Catamount Ski Area is moments away, and Butternut Basin is just up the road,
and a little farther is Beartown State Forest, where you can find fishing, and swimming in Benedict
Pond, or hiking along one of the many marked trails, a refreshing break from your travels. You can
also choose from many of the other larger or smaller lakes, and streams, such as Lake Buel, Lake
Garfield, the Konkapot, and Green Rivers, or Great Barrington's Lake Mansfield, all within minutes of
your motel room.

Sheffield is the next town to the South of Great Barrington, and it is the Antique
Hub of the Berkshires, with antique shops for every taste and price. Stockbridge, and Lenox are directly
to the North of us, where you will find Tanglewood, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Stockbridge Bowl, and
of course The Norman Rockwell Museum. Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival is just twenty minutes away,
and the many other things to do and see while you are here, are close by or accessible in about forty-five
minutes at most.
Of course there's Great Barrington. Don't miss the casual dining atmosphere of 20 Railroad Street, and the growing collection of dining choices and shops on Railroad St. The renowned Club Helsinki and the adjoining Helsinki Cafe offer fine dining and world class music in eclectic and unique spaces. Also, try the Barrington Beer Works for
their selection of local brews and bistro food. Consider a visit to nearby John Andrews Restaurant in South Egremont, or Gt. Barrington's own Castle Street Cafe, for fine gourmet dining experiences. Great Barrington has many fine stores, and shops in which
to browse or simply buy the staples of everyday life. You can find almost everything you came to
the Berkshires for within minutes, and if you can't just ask. We are more than happy to help
accommodate you during your stay here in the Berkshires.
