Berkshire East View From Warfield House Inn

The Resort

Berkshire East is a four season resort in Western Massachusetts, close to Berkshire County, Northampton, Amherst, and Greenfield. It has one of the budding adventure sports scenes on the East Coast, which is awesome considering the cultural scene that has been the Berkshire’s since way before Herman Melville wrote Moby Dick not too far away.

Featuring the most skiable terrain in Massachusetts; the best downhill mountain bike park on the East Coast; three zip line tours; whitewater rafting trips in Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut; one of the longest mountain coasters in the world; an Adventure Park; rustic farm Inn and Wedding Center; and lots of facilities to host your event or to warm up in after a great day on the slopes. Berkshire East offers a mountain getaway for everyone.

Bring the kids for summertime fun, your friends for wintertime riding, or the entire staff for a corporate retreat that goes beyond the boardroom. We have a summer campground, nicely appointed rooms, and several restaurants and pubs here for you to enjoy. Close to beautiful Shelburne Falls, MA, MOCA, the Clark Art Museum, Tannery Falls, the Zoar Gap, and many more activities, restaurants, and fun for you and yours.
