Great Barrington, Berkshires
Tucked away in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts sits Great Barrington—dotted with its postcard perfect brick-clad storefronts and circa 1905 theatre. For well over 100 years artists, writers and other creative types have turned the town into a four season destination where visitors and locals alike can enjoy hiking, skiing and an award-winning restaurant scene.

3. The Cocktails
After exploring the picturesque scenery and culture that makes Great Barrington a charming destination in the Berkshires, stop by John Andrews Farmhouse for one of their unique handcrafted cocktails—we can't help to recommend the prohibition-era "Bee's Knees," concocted with botanist gin, lemon, honey and lavender. If you're enjoying the view of the circa 1700s farmhouse's original ice house you've tallied yet another reason to stay for dinner. Led by Chef-Owner Dan Smith and inspired by international flavors using seasonally sourced ingredients—the restaurant holds a strong commitment to locavore principles supporting local farmers and artisan food makers in the Berkshires, Hudson Valley and Northwestern Connecticut. Signature favorites include Trout Filet stuffed with spinach, Seared Duck Breast and house-made Ricotta Gnocchi.
