An undiscovered place of matchless beauty hidden among the hills and valleys of Western Massachusetts, Franklin County is casual, unpretentious, and welcoming to all. #MoreToFranklinCounty
Winter isn’t coming – it’s here. And sure, you can head to the nearest heat source, bundle up, and drink spiced concoctions. But a particularly good way to earn that wintry reward is to embrace all the season has to offer. It is, after all, the only season in which you can slide around on the landscape on a couple of boards.
Franklin County's natural resources are extensive and provide opportunities for canopy tours zip-lining down the hillsides of West County, hiking Audubon trails, biking routes as fine as anywhere in New England, canoeing and kayaking on a myriad of rivers, bountiful fishing, X-country skiing in season, almost anything you want to do in the great out-of-doors in any season of the year.
Eat & Drink
We can offer you a sumptuous brunch, your choice of ethnic lunches, a casual dinner or fine dining specializing in local farm-to-table produce and viands of surf or turf. Our chefs take pride in knowing their farming neighbors and finding the freshest fruits and vegetables in season.
Arts & Culture
To say that there are numerous choices any given day or weekend is no exaggeration. Whatever your pleasure, you will find extraordinary experiences that celebrate the rivers, hills and valleys and towns that typify New England as you’d hoped to find it.
