A Dreamy Legacy
The beauty and serenity of the Berkshires have always attracted dreamers. Away from bustling cities, great artists have realized their creative visions, leaving a legacy that enriches us all.
Among the many writers and poets who have called the Berkshires home are Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edith Wharton, author of the classic Ethan Frome. On your next visit to Lenox, you can visit Wharton’s spectacular home, The Mount, and even see the actual spots where episodes in the book take place. Or treat yourself to a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum to enjoy some of America’s most loved portraits of itself. And take the short excursion to Chesterwood, country home and studio of Daniel Chester French, sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial.
Today the Berkshires boasts world-renowned performing arts venues and contemporary galleries that can complement your Canyon Ranch stay, delighting your spirit and inspiring dreams of your own.
