Vacations in the Berkshires are the stuff of Norman Rockwell paintings. But families don’t need to stay picture-perfect to have a great time hiking, skiing, boating, rafting, or enjoying fall foliage. Messy hair and muddy shoes are the norm in this outdoor haven near the Appalachian Trail. After a day of mountain adventures (or visiting the nearby Norman Rockwell Museum or town of Tanglewood), our Oak n’ Spruce Resort is the perfect New England-y place to unwind and kick off those hiking boots. Take the whole family for a relaxing indoor swim, enjoy a flick at our onsite movie theater, and end your evening with a toast at the Beartree Bar.
