A Winter Getaway

The holidays are in the rear-view mirror and spring is a long way off.  It’s winter, and if you’re a snow lover or not, you’ll want to take a break at some point during these long, cold months.

Snow in Deerfield, MAHere in Deerfield, winter is a time when everything seems to slow down. The snow that blankets the region seems to bring a calm across the landscape that translates into a slower pace, allowing the opportunity to enjoy the beauty that takes hold – from snowcapped mountains to frosted forests.

If you’re an active winter lover, there are several great places for outdoor recreation. Berkshire East, in Charlemont, Massachusetts, offers skiing, snowboarding, and riding snow tubes. Take a hike up Mount Sugarloaf, just down the road in South Deerfield. Or just take a walk along Old Main Street here in Deerfield to enjoy the scenery of this old New England Village.

If you’re looking to stay inside and keep warm, there are wonderful museums to visit in the region. From Amherst to Williamstown, there’s something of interest for everyone: MassMoca, the Clark, the museums of the Five Colleges – and Historic Deerfield’s Flynt Center of Early New England Life, right here in our neighborhood.

Gorgeous winter landscape during a winter getaway in MAIf you’re in a shopping mood, you can visit Yankee Candle Village, Kringle Candle, or make a trip to the Premium Outlets in Lee.  We’re not too far from the Berkshires, either!

Once you’re done exploring, swing by Champney’s for a drink by the fire or a hearty meal.

It’s the perfect time to take a break and enjoy a winter getaway in New England!
