R&R at the B&B

Norman Rockwell

Our trip to the Berkshires gave us a chance to get out of the city and breathe some fresh air. We stayed at Hampton Terrace in a private suite, enjoying fine hospitality, a huge breakfast, and our own jacuzzi and fireplace.

How did we spend our days? Well, I’ll tell you.


  • Driving up the Taconic with Oscar at the wheel.
  • Pit stop in Lee for some outlet shopping.
  • Arrive at the b&b. Settle into our digs.


  • Big ass breakfast.
  • Morning in the emergency room to deal with a nasty throat infection that decided to emerge overnight. Sweet.
  • Stop at the wine and cheese shop for indoor picnic supplies.
  • Sleep for hours and let meds work their magic.
  • Head to Stockbridge for dinner and live music at the Red Lion Inn.


  • Big ass breakfast.
  • On a tip from Stan, the innkeeper, we headed to the Clark Institute in Williamstown and the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge.
  • Music and a pint of Guiness (Coke for the invalid).


  • Big ass breakfast.
  • Check out of our palace.
  • Drive down through Great Barrington and on to Millbrook to visit some friends and enjoy a little more fresh air before heading back to NYC.

If anyone is looking for a nice place to get away, try Hampton Terrace. I have stayed in a lot of nice places, and this one was far and away the best. I know I’m looking forward to going back when I can.
