It's affectionately called "the Berkies" by locals who passionately love their little slice of the US, for good reason, with the astonishingly attractive landscape providing a playground for all sorts of activities. When you stay in a Berkshire County vacation rental, you can saddle up for horseback riding adventures, go hiking up through the mountains, or jump into kayaks to paddle along the rivers and lakes.

Outdoor adventures in Berkshire County

The county might be known for its art, but its scenery and outdoor activities don't let the side down either. If you're looking for all-guns-blazing activities like whizzing through the canopies on zip-lines, hurtling down the pathways on mountain bikes, or riding the white-water rapids, you'll find it here. Alternatively, if you're looking for more sedate outdoor pursuits, like walking the footpaths or swinging your clubs on the sunny golf courses, you'll find those near your Berkshire County vacation rental too. As the winter snows roll in, you'll find a whole new host of thrill-seeking sports, like skiing and ice skating.

Don't discount the spring in Berkshire County

The summer season brings in vacationing families, who come to bask in the bright and sunny weather. If you plan to visit between July and August, be sure to book up your Berkshire County vacation rental early to avoid disappointment. If you want to avoid the swarms of travelers, you could consider visiting in spring, when the hiking trails are filled with blooming wild flowers and the wildlife begins to awaken after the long winter. Later in the year, you can pick up a steal on rentals and enjoy the famously good Massachusetts fall foliage.

Ambling moose in Berkshire County

You'll never be far from nature when you stay in a Berkshire County vacation rental, though try the 6,000-hectare October Mountain State Forest, the largest woodland in the state. During September and October, the forest bursts into hues of yellow, orange and red and there isn't a more spectacular time to visit. While you hike through the park, keep a beady eye out for wild foxes slinking around the forest floors, or circling birds of prey, like bald eagles and migrating hawks, overhead. There are bigger beasts to spot as well, like deer and giant moose, which are seen ambling around the lakes.
