Why is Hampton Terrace Filling Up for Berkshire Fall Foliage Viewing?


Fall Foliage in the Berkshires

There are a lot of reasons Hampton Terrace is filling up for the month of October.  We are a great home base for checking out the spectacular Fall Foliage.

But don’t just take our word for it.   Several years ago BedandBreakfast.com named us one of the Top Ten Inns in the Northeast for viewing leaves.   So there.

But to be more specific:

  • Leaves are just as red on Tuesday as they are on Saturday.   We use our off-season rates for Monday through Thursday, saving $70/night.   Why pay more?
  • Not all leaves change at the same time.  Higher elevations turn sooner than lower.   Northern locations turn sooner than southern.  Lenox is centrally located and in spite of what date you choose to visit us, Vermont is 45 minutes north and Connecticut is 45 minutes south.   We will send you to where colors are peaking.   Additionally, the entire Berkshires are covered with peaks and valleys.   You will find colors until all the leaves are on the ground.
  • Fall evenings are cool.   Hampton Terrace has 12 fireplace rooms and 10 Jacuzzi rooms (plus 2 antique claw-foot soaking tubs).   Romance anyone?
  • Attractions are open.   Of course, this area is known for its summer season, but almost every attraction stays open through Foliage Season because they know the October crowds almost match those in July/August.   Museums.   Historic House tours.  Theater.   Music.  Restaurants.  Shops.  Theater.   You will find it all.

Fall Foliage, LenoxIt is September 23rd, and as I look out my office window, I see red, yellow and orange starting to take over the green.   It is not too early to consider a visit.   And even as late as the last week in October, you will have the experience you seek.
