It’s our favorite time of year again, when we are truly grateful to be living in one of the most beautiful counties in New England.  Our cozy “Berkshire cottage” is the perfect place for you to “escape to home” for the Thanksgiving holiday.   Staying true to the spirit of the house (Winthrop Estate is a gilded-age mansion that was built in 1925), our home is furnished with luxurious period pieces.   Bring your entire family and a big appetite for a long weekend of festivities.  Our staff is here to make you feel completely at home.  You can get comfortable in the wood paneled library where we have leather couches and chairs, a wide selection of current books and music, a fireplace (one of many throughout the mansion) and a baby grand piano; kids and teens will enjoy the upstairs game room with ping pong, board games, foosball, and a big screen T.V. with cable and video games.   Or relax in the conservatory, a sun drenched, verdigris colored room with original wood paneling, red hexagonal tile floor, and lush potted plants; it’s right off the kitchen and a favorite spot for breakfast and long conversations. Or step outdoors where we have the six-acre lawn, woodland trails, views to take your breath away.  Or enjoy the 500+acres of sanctuary hiking trails very nearby.

But let’s talk turkey.  We can have a twenty -pound bird in the oven and all the fixings for your feast served in the formal dining room.  You won’t have to lift a finger.  Leftovers – you bet!  Turkey, stuffing and cranberry sandwiches on dinner rolls will be waiting too.

What is your Thanksgiving plan?
