What a beautiful time of year — the flowers are starting to make their entrance, the air is crisp and the sun is warm. To add to the newness of Spring, visit the Baby Animals on the Shaker Farm, just down the road in Pittsfield. Hancock Shaker Village kicks off its 2013 season with Baby Animals […]
Spring is on its way, but there’s still plenty of winter fun to be had! One of our favorite places is just a half hour north: Jiminy Peak Mountain. Enjoy these last few winter weeks from atop their mountain. They offer skiing, riding and an adventure park. Not to mention that they are the only […]
We were so excited to have an extra special guest this weekend — the Red Chair! For those of you not familiar with the Red Chair, it has been making its way all over New England to select Inns and B&B’s. We were looking forward to its visit and gave it a great Gateways visit […]

Right here in Lenox you will find our favorite theatre — Shakespeare and Company. Not only are their performances not to be missed, they have also provided us with the inspiration to rename our rooms here at Gateways.

And Rosemary was honored to be asked to judge their Apple Pie Contest! It was a lovely afternoon, […]
