A Special Family Vacation in Lenox this Labor Day

Family Vacation

Family Vacation

In the Berkshires, we are enjoying warm summer weather this week and the garden is growing tall.  A full schedule of weddings and family events is ahead of us.  The busy summer season, which started in early May for us, always tends to go by fast.

Many of our guests have already inquired about repeat visits.  Though the estate is almost completely booked this year already, there are a few weekends still left.  Labor Day weekend is one of them and with the Tanglewood Wine and Food Classic September 1-4, and the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, it will be a great time to be in Lenox.  The Winthrop Estate is just about a mile from Tanglewood’s main gate and the Jazz Festival and the Wine and Food Classic are real treats, (if you like good jazz, wine and food)!

Labor Day weekend is a nice time to gather the family in Lenox, just before school starts for the young ones and as the trees are starting to turn.  There are so many things to do at that time if you want to venture off property; see a Shakespeare & Company production, visit the Mount or Chesterwood, enjoy a lazy day and a hike in Kennedy Park just a few minutes from the Winthrop Estate, or take the kids out for a sweet at Patisserie Lenox.  There’s plenty to do in this area. Here are more ideas for family fun in the Berkshires.
