We stay at New Marlborogh’s Old Inn on the Green & Gedney Farm -- a spectacularly renovated Normandy-style barn -- and enjoy a candle lit dinner at the barn’s former stage coach station.

Day 2: After our country breakfast, we cycle to Stockbridge, a picturesque New England town. In Stockbridge, we visit the Norman Rockwell museum and tour the summer home of Daniel Chester French, sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial. We follow panoramic Berkshire views to Lenox, where we peruse its many galleries and stroll quaint streets. Our Lenox stop also includes the Mount, the magnificent summer home of novelist Edith Wharton, who designed the estate for herself. At night, we return to Tanglewood for a sumptuous picnic dinner, while attending one of the Tanglewood’s stunning outdoor concerts.
(basic route: 27 miles easy/moderate, extended route: 40 miles moderate)

Day 3: We head to Norfolk, one of the northeast’s best preserved villages. There, we visit summer estates and the Hillside Gardens before riding to the Dennis Hill State Park. Our weekend trip concludes at the 3,800-acre Otis State Park, a recreation haven for swimming, boating, and fishing.
