When arriving at the Berkshires from nearby New York, Albany, Hartford, Boston or other distant locales, the first stop a visitor often makes is the village of West Stockbridge located in Western Massachusetts. This picturesque town, straddling the Williams River, is just off the main highways coming and going. With a multitude of cultural attractions like Tanglewood Music Center, Norman Rockwell Museum, Hancock Shaker Village, Jacob's Pillow, Mass MoCA and Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, it's no wonder that the Berkshires was named #3 on Travel + Leisure's list of the 50 best places to travel in the US in 2021!
 
The charming town of West Stockbridge has its own, newly created cultural destination in TurnPark Art Space (photo above). This sculpture park, built into an old marble quarry, is now one of the notable 'things to do' when in the area.

West Stockbridge's authentic small-town charm is what makes some of the area's finest businesses proud to call it home! From art galleries and open studios, to antique and gift shops, to a rare book shop and an old-fashioned mercantile - the shopping in town is unique and plentiful. Grab a bite at one of our popular restaurants, then stay the night at our pet-friendly inn. Hike our trails, take in a stunning vista, or poke around the river's edge. Check out Berkshire Magazine's Town Guide for an exploration into all the unique ways to spend time in West Stockbridge.

 

Nestled in the Berkshire Hills, West Stockbridge has an enchanting location. Dramatic views abound as you drive our winding country roads. Don't rush through - stay a while & explore. West Stockbridge retains the character of days long-gone-by, but still offers everything a modern day traveler could need!

West Stockbridge is halfway to EVERYTHING in Berkshire County.

AT THE HEART

The Williams River Basin is formed by several brooks, lakes and ponds converging north of town, collecting at Shaker Mill Pond, flowing over the dam at the old Shaker Mill, and through the heart of town.

Whether you are angling along the Williams River bank, spending a summer at Crane Lake Camp, swimming at Card Pond Recreation Area, or just picnicking along the footbridge at the center of town, the river's flow sets a relaxing tone - nourishing and entertaining all who encounter it.
